GTA V online glitches highlighted

While many gamers have not been impressed with the recent issues regarding Grand Theft Auto Online, when it comes to some of the glitches and irregularities involved there are some humorous aspects that a few gamers have documented. In the screenshot below you can see a player getting his hair trimmed by an invisible stylist, and if you look closely there’s a pair of floating scissors carrying out these duties for all to see.

This is one of many online glitches noted and the video above this article gives us a few different scenarios when things do not go exactly how they are supposed to. The footage above lasts around three and half minutes showing us some humorous outcomes, and although these are issues, we cannot help but laugh at some of the things experienced, especially with a running commentary by two gamers cracking up at what is being seen.

There is no doubt that even with the bugs’ offline, GTA V is a great game, and although the bugs seem frustrating to many gamers, specific situations provide plenty of humour for those willing to make light of the glitches.

Throughout the video you will get to see some funny moments like a driverless car reversing back and forth or an invisible player wielding a floating weapon, although things like the radar going missing can have a drastic effect on how the player progresses.

This has prompted us to relay last week’s post in which we discussed problems gamers are having connecting with GTA V Online, and although once the online aspect went live we envisioned this would not go ahead seamlessly, especially considering how popular GTA V is, and this has resulted in trouble connecting online.

Regardless of how many people thought the online game would be in hot demand, we get the impression Rockstar were not ready for this, even those who are just going online to see what the big attraction to GTA V Online is all about.

We advised gamers to remain patient while Rockstar rectified the situation and if you are anything like me, I am just taking my time with the story mode for a while until everything is sorted. Then depending on how hooked I am, I might just see what all this fuss is about regarding the online aspect.

We couldn’t help but question whether Rockstar were oblivious as to how many gamers would be trying out this much talked about multiplayer version and wonder why Rockstar were not prepared for this. Are you still experiencing online issues? Alternatively, what humorous bugs and glitches have you come across within both the story and online version?

I encountered being stuck behind the gun counter within the first ten minutes of play in the story mode, and for a first impression this did not go down too well, although just exploring at the moment is taking up all of my GTA V playing time and I am currently appreciating the game at a very slow pace.
