GTA Online has just received a new weekly update. However, it looks like there are still some unexpected bugs in the game.

These are quite common nowadays in online games and GTA Online is no exception. There have been a lot of glitches and bugs since its release and it looks like someone has recently found a car magnet, thanks to a hilarious bug.

Player finds a new car magnet bug in GTA Online

As seen in the aforementioned Reddit post, the user shared a clip of GTA Online gameplay where they found a car magnet bug. The video started with them casually driving their car in the open world of Los Santos.

After a couple of moments, the player got a near miss from the ongoing traffic, and just as they tried to take control back, a nearby car got pulled automatically into their vehicle. The bug made their car act like a magnet. The whole situation seemed hilarious as it gave a pretty fun idea of messing around in the game.

Fans responded to the post by sharing their reactions to seeing such a bug in the game. One such user, Lemon_Cries, stated:

“I always hear people complain about this and I’ve even seen videos but I never recall the AI messing with me that badly, do they not do it if you drive on the wrong side of the street or on the footpath because that’s usually where I drive because there’re less cars there?”

Another user, kellybrownstewart, shared an insight about the gameplay by commenting:

“Sometimes you can even ‘steer’ police cars that are in front of you by countering their movement. You can really see how your actions can control NPC vehicles. The case here definitely looks like a desperate attempt to cut you off with poorly implemented AI.”

Here are some of the best fan reactions to the Reddit post:

It's one of the bugs in the game which doesn’t break it but adds a hilarious layer. It is only a matter of time before Rockstar Games’ servers notice the bug and fix it with new updates over time.
