GTA Online Players Are Roaming Around For Free Stuff
If you’ve played GTA Online, this news won’t surprise you to discover that its most dedicated players will do anything and about everything they can to get the latest, stuff on offer. In last month’s Los Santos Tuners update that added new clothes and car paint jobs, players found that one of the best ways to get ahead is to simply not play. Or, more accurately, go AFK and let the game into thinking you’re still playing.
AFK farming isn’t new to GTA Online, but because of the recent patch that nerfed the most common AFK methods, players have had to get a little more creative to gain Tuner XP and unlock the updates new clothes and car liveries.
To get Tuner XP, players have to collect at a “Car Meet” and exploit the little XP bonus earned every few minutes simply for being there. Car Meets are thought to be multiplayer rooms to show off your ride’s absurd hydraulics, trash talk about who’s quicker, and line up for races like that one part in every Fast & Furious movie. But if you have AFK operators in at your car meet, all you’ll see are very confused individuals walking into walls. Some fans have noted that this is an extremely slow way to level up your Tuner rep once you pass level 100 winning the races will get you there faster.
Which means are players using to stay on the move? Reddit user ElsonDaSushiCheff was thinking out of the box when they placed a single battery on the W key, just enough to keep it pressed. As for the double-stick rubber band tactic pictured below from th3d0wnfa11 used to crush on two different platforms at the same time.
