Rockstar Games has quietly updated Grand Theft Auto V with an unannounced patch for GTA Online. The background update fixes a fairly major glitch that gave a single Molotov the power to destroy an entire submarine.
GTA Online’s expensive Kosatka submarine–added in the recent Cayo Perico Heist update–can be used as a base to set up heists or as a lumbering nuclear-powered vehicle. Considering it’s virtually immune to small-arms fire, it’s easy to imagine the owner’s anguish when a lone Molotov is more than enough to blow it out of the water. Thankfully, the new patch fixes the problem.
Aside from this, the dupe merge glitch, which allowed players to merge and duplicate vehicles, has also been patched out. The update also makes some minor adjustments and fixes to freemode event spawns.
In other GTA news, a new NPC tech patent filed by Rockstar has people talking about GTA 6. Before any potential sequel happens, however, the company is also bringing the seven-year-old GTA V to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S later this year. PlayStation Plus subscribers playing on PlayStation 4 will receive cash bonuses in GTA Online every month until the mode hits Sony’s next-gen console.
