GTA Online Players Are Earning Millions Of Dollars. See How

| Published on March 6, 2019

It’s not out of the blue when you find young adults discussing Grand theft Auto (probably one of the best video games right now). Moreover, a week back, players discovered the most amazing trick to earn tons of money. All thanks to a character, Lester.

The usual system?

In GTA online, the process is very simple. Players need to pay a certain amount of money as a fee to call the character, Lester and hence request an airplane. Moreover, it also has a clause, that if the system fails, as in, the airplane does not arrive, the money is refunded to the players.

What happened?

So, fans while playing discovered an exploit of sorts which would allow them to receive money for as long as they wanted. To be more specific, $2000 every few seconds. Fans and players fell in love with the character that made things so easy for them. They posted memes and stories about the amazing existence of Lester.

Why did it happen?

In the game, according to GTA data miner Tezfun2 (a popular gamer), the bug worked by breaking Lester’s scripting. So, players would go and park their car inside a hangar at the airport in Southern San Andreas. Now, what must be noted is that there is an airplane located in the hangar above at the very same airport. So now players would call Lester while hitting the gas pedal at the same time. So when a player did that near a plane spawn location, money would automatically get transferred to them. Everybody got excited and start posting of chilling and hanging out at the airport in the game.

What did Rockstar do?

So, Rockstar got to know about this and worked on fixing the glitch. They patched the exploit by changing how corrupted data works, allowing faster data clearance, making the existing money transfer loop impossible, according to GTA data miner Tezfun2.

Do you think anything can stop the fans?

Well, not really. Soon after the above correction by Rockstar, fans figured out another way to get money via their favourite character. They used a particular Mobile Operations center to block to plane spawn locations unlike just one before. Then the call was made to Lester but planes would now be able to leave, allowing money to transfer on loop, yet again.

The Finale –

Well, knowing about this, Rockstar finally found the cure. They removed the whole requirement of a fee to call Lester. So, no fee led to no refund requirement clause. So any calls, made anywhere and any number of times, would be free and would not lead to any refund process.

Fans were very upset about the end to their fun ride. However, as consolation, GTA data miner Tezfun2, mentioned how this bug has been existing for years, waiting to be discovered. Also, one might never know, how many other bugs are waiting to be discovered.

Well, fans are getting to work. And Rockstar? They’ve got to pull their socks up and be prepared.
