GTA Online Update Fixes Submarine Glitch, Vehicle Merge Duping

Your expensive sub will no longer be destroyed by a single Molotov.


A new update for Grand Theft Auto V has been released, although Rockstar has not officially detailed what it does for the base game or GTA Online. According to a report on Twitter, this resolves some significant glitches, including one where a submarine could be destroyed using a lone Molotov and another that allowed vehicles to be duplicated.

GTA Online's expensive Kosatka submarine--added in the recent Cayo Perico Heist update--can be used as a base to set up heists or as a lumbering nuclear-powered vehicle. Considering it's virtually immune to small-arms fire, it's easy to imagine the owner's anguish when a lone Molotov is more than enough to blow it out of the water. Thankfully, the new patch fixes the problem, according to a tweet from Rockstar sleuth Tez2.
