A GTA Online user was horrified to find cops spawning inside their driving car, brandishing weapons, and sabotaging their theft.
A Grand Theft Auto Online player was taken aback when police spawned inside the cop car they were driving, murdering them and destroying their theft. Heists in the Grand Theft Auto series are often multi-part plot missions with a substantially bigger monetary payoff for players than regular missions. Heists, as the word implies, usually include taking something. Over the years, Grand Theft Auto V has included several different heists, all differing in their approach.
Players have been speculating when Grand Theft Auto VI will be released for the past eight years, especially with the latest announcements of the GTA: The Trilogy coming to consoles. Players appear to want an updated version of the game even more after encountering issues like this.
The player is seen escaping other police cars on the streets while driving their cop car in a recent Reddit video posted by RakorGames. They pull into a garage and exit the vehicle, preparing to swap to their escape vehicle, only to be greeted by a swarm of cops spawning inside the patrol car they were driving. The cops get out of the car and point their guns towards the player, thereby “wasting” them and destroying the theft. “Rockstar isn’t even concealing it anymore…” wrote RakorGames after the experience.
Players have chastised Rockstar in the past for how they manage to spawn, not just in Grand Theft Auto but also in other titles like Red Dead Redemption. In games like these, players require a limitless number of adversaries to combat, but it might be distracting when they appear out of nowhere. Of course, having cops spawn randomly off-screen is also terrible; however, having adversaries spawn so near to a player in such a vulnerable position – and in the same car they were driving – makes the outcome all the more aggravating. Situations like this make people want a new game rather than a re-release of Grand Theft Auto V on new systems, where they may run into the same problems.
Fortunately, many other GTA players in the comments are startled to see this, indicating that this is not a typical occurrence. When a game like Grand Theft Auto V has been around for as long as it has, players are likely to discover just about every in-game feature, whether by accident or on purpose. However, franchises such as Grand Theft Auto and The Elder Scrolls have experienced the same issue: they have revealed relatively little information throughout the extended wait for the next installment in their respective series. NFT spawning difficulties will hopefully be addressed in Grand Theft Auto VI when it finally arrives.
Grand Theft Auto Online is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with PS5 and Xbox Series X/S support coming in March 2022.
