GTA Online – Latest Hotfix Removes Quick Restart, Character Loss PSA

Another day, another patch for GTA Online.

Although the latest patch is just a measly 30 mb in size, it will impact GTA Online in a big way as it will remove the quick replay feature (press R2/RT), which made it possible to grind out missions like Violent Duct and Mixed Up With Coke effortlessly.

Speaking of Violent Duct, Rockstar also appears to have reduced or “nerfed” the amount of cash that you receive upon completing the mission. A silent hot fix rolled out that rolled out yesterday reduced the amount cash earned from Violent Duct from 9,000 to 3,000 per completion.

At the moment of this writing, Rockstar Games hasn’t provided official patch notes for the latest update, but the community of GTA Online has reported to be experiencing these changes.

Additionally, Rockstar has also released a PSA regarding the recent issue of lost characters, that reads the following:

If you have previously created a character but see an empty character selection screen when entering GTA Online, please back out to GTAV Story Mode and try re-entering GTA Online through the pause menu (repeat or wait until Rockstar cloud servers are back up). Do not create a new character in the empty slot where your character should be.

If you receive the message ‘The Rockstar Cloud Servers Are Unavailable’, please return to GTAV Story Mode and follow the steps above.  Please do not press “Retry” on the message and do not proceed online with saving disabled, as this may lead to overwriting your existing character.

We apologize for this inconvenience and are working on a permanent fix for these issues

How much cash have you earned so far in GTA Online? Let us know in the comment section below!
