Rockstar has been keeping GTA Online updated with regular fixes, updates, and content addition. A few weeks ago, the developer surprised the users with a new DLC giving players a set of new missions and a new island to explore. Cheating is one of the major problems that the players of GTA Online are facing for a few years now. There are quite a few cheatmaker sites that supply cheat codes to the players. The cheats range from spawning vehicles, damage buff, infinite health to even stealing money from other users. Rockstar was fairly active in curtailing the use of cheats in the earlier days of GTA Online. The studio even penalized many cheat makers as well. Many new sites have popped up in the last two years and it seems Rockstar is back at getting rid of these sites.
According to a report from IGN, a GTA Online cheatmaker has been forced to close its operations and donate its proceeds to charity following a lawsuit from Take-Two Interactive. Luna Mods Menu distributor, Luna Cheats has shut down its operations and replaced the site with a short statement. Alluding to the lawsuit the site says, “After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, we are immediately ceasing all maintenance, development, and distribution of our cheat menu services. We will also be donating our proceeds to a charity designated by Take-Two. We apologize for any and all problems our software has caused to the GTA Online community.”
The Luna Mod allowed its subscribers to cheat in a variety of different ways. It created a short menu on the display from which the players can easily access the cheats they like as shown in the video above.
It should be noted that Luna Mods is not the only cheatmaker for GTA Online. Several other sites offer a similar service to their subscribers/users. Halting its services is by no means a feat to celebrate rather it should be the start of long series of lawsuits to curtail and eventually stop cheating.
