The Grand Theft Auto series has seen a lot of interesting mods, cheats, and glitches over the years. Whether it’s something as simple as spawning items using Rockstar’s own cheat codes or modifying the game into a three-dimensional Flappy Bird, there’s something for every Grand Theft Auto player.
One modder is already hard at work bringing similar modifications to the wildly popular PC port of Grand Theft Auto V. While the game already featured plenty of violence, the new mod takes the game’s physical combat to the level of superheroes.
PC modder LinGon released an update to his LinGon PC Trainer, which already offered access to a variety of cheats using the F1-F9 keys on the keyboard. The latest update has taken these cheats a step further, adding in a “super power” option. Enabling this option allows players to throw punches and deliver “300” Sparta-esque kicks that send vehicles flying into the stratosphere, as seen in LinGon’s demonstration video above.
LinGon’s trainer already included infinite bullet time, infinite health and teleportation, so Grand Theft Auto V PC players are getting an opportunity to live out their superhero (or villain) fantasies with this mod. These cheats should also make for some entertaining gameplay videos using the built-in video editing tool. It’s also worth noting that these modifications are primarily intended for solo play, and considering that Rockstar has already refrained from offering a modding kit, trying to use these cheats online isn’t recommended.
A big part of what PC players enjoy about gaming on the PC is the infinite possibilities to modify their games. While a console edition can only offer so much, PC games can often be massively modified, leading to players still enjoying games as old as The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Whether modders are adding new content to Grand Theft Auto V, overhauling Half Life 2’s visuals or turning Metal Gear’s Snake into Hideo Kojima, they create a lot of exciting things to experience that the vanilla games don’t offer.
Time will tell if mods from prior Grand Theft Auto games make a return in Grand Theft Auto V, but considering the game has only been out for a week, the future modding scene looks promising already.
Grand Theft Auto V released for the PC on April 14th, 2015.
