GTA Online Weekly Update: Thursday, February 2nd, 2023

Rockstar released a new update for GTA Online on Thursday, February 2nd, 2023. The update tackled two major exploits on the PC version of the game – the Overflow exploit and account corruption exploit. The latest version of the game (version 1.66) fixed these exploits, and Rockstar also added new anti-bot measures to curtail message spammers. Corrupted accounts can now be reported and fixed through Rockstar Support Tech.

Despite these fixes, the public lobbies in GTA Online are still chaotic with reduced accounts and griefers trolling other players. Modders are not spoofing their usernames, which is a positive development. However, PC players are safe to play the game without fear of their accounts being compromised.

New Vehicles

This week’s prize ride is the Lifeguard SUV, and players can get it by placing in the top five for three days. The test rides for the week include the Sentinel Classic, the Monroe, and the Tropis Rally. The Monroe has a top speed of 122 miles (195 kilometers) and is worth taking for a spin around the track. Players can win the Stinger GT at the casino or buy it for 875 Grand.

Simeon’s Autos features the Everon penetrator, Bowler ST, Yuga Classic, and Tulip. The luxury Autos has the Cocaine D10 and Turismo R vehicles. Players can get a 50% discount on the Yuga Classic and a 30% discount on the Tropis Rally, the Tulip, and the Brocade 6×6. Complete the Dax Fleet Services mission for a chance to get the Brocade 6×6 for free.

Weekly Bonuses

Players can earn double money and RP in the Hasta La Vista adversary mode and 1.5 times the money and RP on Acid Lab stuff. The time trials for the week include Raton Canyon and the RC Bandito Time Trial for GTA Online. The construction site one is the time trial for this week.

Overall, the update seems lean this week, and the community will continue to be informed of any further updates as they arrive. A detailed guide for discounted items will be available later to help players decide whether to buy them. As always, stay safe and wash your hands.

it’s Thursday and that means it’s update day in
GTA Online so let’s see where it’s at on Thursday the 2nd of February 2023
hi and welcome back my name is Dan and I’m an old grumpy gamer well first up and most importantly
Rockstar claimed to have fixed the Overflow exploit on the PC version of GTA online along
with the account corruption exploit so if you’re using the latest build of the game that’s version
1.66 you’re good to go again there also appears to be some new anti-bot stuff on the Rockstar
launcher I’ve not seen this before so I can only assume it’s a new addition to help slow down the
message spammers this bug doesn’t affect console though so no issues there Rockstar has also
committed to fixing corrupted accounts so if your account was booked by a model over the last couple
of weeks you can ping a Rockstar Support Tech on support.rockstar.com to have it fixed you can
also report cheats and modders there now too which is a welcome change so does this mean the public
lobbies have calmed down no old grumpy gamer power user jittery jet has been on and experimenting
over the course of the entire Saga risking his account to keep an eye on what’s going down he’s
rep supporting slow load times connectivity issues and weird tags in messages and the usual spammy
Shenanigans plus it’s still a war zone there are still accounts that are way too reduced
and Griefers are everywhere jittery noted modders appear to not be spoofing their username though
so that’s a win but as I noted at the top of the video the PC version is patched and your account
is no longer at risk by playing the PC version of GTA online so taking the W on that one anyway
on to the good stuff starting with the ls carmate and this week’s prize ride is the Lifeguard SUV to
get that one you’ll need to place top five three days in a row which is surprisingly easy so grab
it if you can over to this week’s test rides and we have the Sentinel classic the Monroe and the
tropis rally and with the Monroe topping out at 122 miles that’s around 195 K’s it’s well worth
taking it for a spin around the track we have the Stinger GT up for grabs at the casino know which
tops out at 112 miles an hour or around 180 K’s and typically goes for 875 Grand this one’s a bit
ordinary but grab it if you can over to simeon’s next where we have the everon penetrator the
bowler St Yuga classic and the tulip with my pick for this week being the penetrator luxury Autos is
up next where we’ve got the cocaine d10 and the Turismo R with the Turismo R being the better
of the two this week in my opinion and sticking with the vehicles this week’s discounts include
50 off the Yuga classic and 30 off the tropis rally the Tulip and the brocade 6×6 although
you can score the brocade free by completing the new Dax first dose missions and finally the
weenie issy rally has been removed from Southern San Andreas super Autos so if you didn’t grab it
last week I’m afraid you’re not going to have a chance this trend of having exclusive time-based
content is deeply concerning between this Prime and GTA plus I have a c sinking feeling that take
to a training is up so season passes for GTA online or GTA 6 are more or less accepted by
the community I am not a fan of this idea at all jumping on the money train for this week and we
have double money NRP on hasta la vista adversary modes and one and a half times money in RP on acid
lab stuff time trials are next starting with the regular one Rattan Canyon and the RC bandito time
trial for GTA online this week is construction site one and that’s it for this week’s updates
at the time of recording this all seemed a little bit lean so we’ll pop anything we missed in the
comments below and make a community post about it there’ll be a detailed what to buy guide a
bit later too where we’ll work through all of the discounted stuff and give our opinion on whether
or not it’s worth it in the meantime if you’re new to the channel subscribe for more content
like this thanks for watching stay safe wash your hands and we’ll see you in the next video
