Question of ethics

5 posts in this topic

Ok so my friend and I are in a moral dilemma.

 

As some of you probably know, there is a bug/glitch in GTA 5 online that will cause armored trucks to spawn infinitely as fast as you can hit them and lose the cops. We are wondering if this can be defined as an exploit or if this is simply a bug since we did nothing, actively, to cause it.  This has happened to us 2 times already this is the third. There is no good information on what causes this to happen. The only common factor is that it happens on invite only sessions that start with only 2 players. After it starts any number of players can come and go as long as the first 2 do not leave. Once either of the first 2 leave the trucks stop immediately.

 

What we do is take a chopper, land in the road to block the truck, kill the driver, shoot open the door, take the money, and fly away in the chopper to escape the police. Escape times vary depending on our luck withe police helicopter spawns. Sometimes we get away in less than 5 minutes, a lot of times it takes longer, as I said, depending on spawns. The longest escape took us a little over 15 minutes.

 

It seems to occur randomly. We have played 2 player invite only sessions many many times where it didn't. We are questioning if this counts as an exploit since we did nothing to cause it besides play the game and the fact that we still have to do the work of hitting the truck and escaping, which sometimes does result in us either crashing or getting shot down by police helicopters.

 

We know some of you will see it as an exploit, but we are of the opinion that since we are not causing this to happen by any means and because we still have to do the work, pay for the ammo and spend the time escaping that it is fair game, unlike some of the already known/patched exploits to gain millions in a few minutes. We assume Rockstar knows about it, because there are a lot of posts and support tickets on their forums, if they do not, then they are dumb and blind, however we could not find any official response from Rockstar.

 

We would like to hear your opinions about it, and would appreciate if you can share any information on it. If you know of an official response from Rockstar or anything more than I have said we know please share the link.

 

As I said, we are unsure about this. It is not our intention to exploit or take advantage of anything. It is totally random and not caused by anything we do aside from play the game. Forum admins please do not lock/delete this at least for a little while. We just want to hear what others have to say about it. We are on the fence, if people think it is an exploit or cheating, we have no problem saying "screw it, lets not abuse it."

Yeah, like I said I am 100% certain they know about it, there are a ton of posts and tickets when you search google. Mainly I wanted to see if anyone has read or knows of a response from them regarding the rules on what is an exploit and how this would fall in the rules.

Honestly you should be ok as long as you did not do it for a prolonged period of time and send in a ticket as well just to cover yourself
