GTA V 1.09 patch prep with secret DNS update

Those of you preparing for the GTA V 1.09 release time need to pay attention, as it looks like Rockstar has finally taken action. Players have been using various exploits to use unlimited money glitches in 1.08, including using DNS servers which players have been going nuts about.

However, whispers are emerging now that Rockstar has secretly deployed a pre-1.09 patch – which specifically targets these DNS servers and have shut them down before 1.09 lands with all access closed off for good.

This may be debatable though, as we are still getting feedback from some of you who tell us that GTA V DNS code servers are still live in the game, even after this stealth hotfix before 1.09. Rockstar has attempted to fix the problem though behind the scenes, so those of you playing legitimately should be hopeful that the 1.09 patch is going to bring the fun back to GTA V.

These unlimited money lobbies were badly needed for some GTA V players, but ultimately it’s a good idea that Rockstar removes them from the game for good – for balance reasons.

Watch the clip below to hear a summary of the stealth patch that Rockstar has sent out for GTA Online, just before the imminent 1.09 update which is surely around the corner.

Have you noticed anything different when playing online over the last few days? If so, leave your thoughts below and also your reaction to DNS servers behind shut down.

Don’t forget to check out the predicted GTA V 1.09 patch notes here.

Typical, R* wants you to pay 50 US dollars for 2.5 million in GTA cash? 50 bucks? really? I could basically buy another PS3 game for 50 bucks. Get into a few lobbies with a couple A*holes and you will spend 2.5 mill in a week just trying to defend yourself. What to do then? Pay another 50 dollars for more cash? Not I.

Why ANYONE would play Online right now is ridiculous. I got to lvl 60 with a cool $2 million and got so bored I restarted the FAR superior Singleplayer game. Until heists come I don’t want anything to do with it, especially on a public server?! Hell no! Invite only 24/7

I am level 32, I have accumulated about 700,000 dollars so far in my total time of playing for 1 day, 18 hours, 32 minutes and 13 seconds. The game was made to be like this. Though I have not made even a million dollars, I still own: a 200,000 apartment, a sports car that may be free, the elegy, but still kicks a ton of ass in races, a wardrobe containing enough clothing, that I could clothe 100 other people, and my guns are also pretty well suited suggesting my kill/death ratio of 3.64. I am not a cheater,… Read more »

I recently joined a lobby and found 3 people over a level 400….one was a level 1000 and that guy had the nerve to tell me he has gotten his rank on his own with no glitching….I am calling BS. I was in the same boat as many others where people were putting money in my account…I think that was very nice but it puts a target on everyone’s back. I just want the people who use these invincibility glitches and mission and race glitches where they rank up multiple times after a race to be banned. I cant even… Read more »

This is crap I’ve been put in a bloody cheaters lobby for 3 weeks an still in it for something I didn’t do so rockstar instead of putting innocent ppl in a cheaters lobby take us out of it

I dunno. GTA Online seemed so promising to me until they tried pulling that Micro Transaction BS. I mean, yeah it’s fun and all but trying stressfully to have people buy micro transactions is just going to lead to these kinds of things. And in truth, why the hell would I want to pay $50 in real money for 3.5 million fake video game dollars? Considering that this game was based on stealing fake video game money, I think the people that modded the game servers to get money have truly understood the moral of the story

Also..it’s glorious killing people in god-mode. Get any land vehicle (except a bike), hit them, drive on top of them, and just sit there.

Noticed that 100% armor on cars feels like 40%. Merryweather jeep isn’t as fast or as tough as it once was. Random plane and helicopter spawns are annoying at times.

Rockstar should have an option, where people can host their own lobbies, with their own settings and it won’t harm the actual online. That way, it’s win-win.

I am so annoyed with the DNS servers and people giving out loads of money which I don’t want, I have left all the money they gave me in my hand so if I get banned for having too much money I can say nope just take the money they gave me which I didn’t want which is in my hand because I have spent ages on GTA V trying to get the best cars and everything and if I get reset for too much money and lose everything I won’t be happy

jimmy69

lol I glitched around $20 million with the selling car glitch and have a good apartment and the best cars, I knew the DNS would get people banned so I avoided it but F*ck R* for nerfing all the payout greedy company

jimmy69
jimmy69

R* have proven to be a greedy company, I get the hacks need to be removed but they have nerfed everything for online. The Single player was good but too short I thought the online would make up for that. There are too many costs e.g. ammo is expensive $12k for insurance to replace car. They want everyone to pay for fake GTA$. We already paid good money for the game. And they can’t even fix the connection problems with their rubbish servers instead the blame the problems on the players. Once some good games come out for the PS4… Read more »

I can’t wait to see how R* deal with the modders and all of the billionaires (myself included) in GTA Online. There were so many different mods used to increase cash and RP that I would expect the easiest solution would be to wipe everyone’s balance to 0, probably killing the game in the process. I got to over level 50 before I got given a DNS code for a server that supposedly only had the Xmas DLC (snow etc), but had a lot of other settings altered too. In no time at all I ranked up almost 20 levels… Read more »

i have snap my gta v game, i peronally think its crap.. the story mode was not long enough, there should more to the story. Gta v online was worse, got reset so many times when the game first started, same boring missions, same boring races, there nothing new online, the free dlc was crap, too many modders, got sick of dying from these hackers, but i know some ppl were a bit happier as at least the could buy things instead of trying to earn it.. ppl got fed up with the crappy rp n money from every mission… Read more »

GTA Online is a mess. First, many promised features were disabled shortly after online went live. R*’s servers apparently couldn’t keep up. Things like the BAWSAQ come to mind. Also, payouts for missions have been reduced, and a number of missions have been eliminated altogether. So, I want to know, whatever happened to that “vibrant economy” they promised us. The fact is, there’s not much left to do to make money in GTA online. Who wants to do the same old missions over and over again just to make ends meet? They don’t want us to make money in the… Read more »
