Hackers Add Virtual Rape to Grand Theft Auto V!?
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
It is no secret that Grand Theft Auto V is a gaming sensation, it may be full of controversy, but its free-roaming, crime loving game world has proven a popular choice for gamers for many years now. Yet it seems there are some people out there who are simply not happy with what the game has to offer, so they break the code and mod the game, once again reminding us why we can’t have nice things.
In a very disturbing new trend, GTAV gamers are being virtually raped, that’s not a typo. The virtual rapists are using modified game code that allows them do to things that were not otherwise intended for the game. This includes making their character a pantless man, locking their player to the back of another and have even added new thrusting animations to complete this disturbing addition to the game.
Now part of me is actually impressed that they were able to re-code the console version of the game in this way, or to this extent, another part of me is amazed this even worked in an online multiplayer environment, while the sensible part of me understands that this kind of behaviour isn’t acceptable and could otherwise ruin the gaming experience for a lot of people.
People are filming their “rape” exploits and uploading them to YouTube. What’s worse for the victims is that the attacker cannot be killed, and you’re left stuck in animation loops doing strip dances… as if this hack couldn’t have gotten any weirder.
The videos below are NSFW and depict scenes of virtual rape, offensive language, etc.
