GTA V Cosmetic Mods Are Not A Bannable Offense; Hilarious Gravity Gun Mod Released


Various PC players of GTA V have been reporting getting banned for using mods in the game. Rockstar though seems to be allowing certain cosmetic only mods.

Rockstar Support told Manujango25, that cosmetic mods are not a bannable offense.


A FOV mod though cannot be considered only cosmetic as it offers an advantage over other players.

Modder ‘MatriZ’ has released an incredible mod that introduces a gravity gun.

For those interested to try it out, it can be downloaded from here.


Rockstar has just released a new patch for GTA V PC, which even though it fixes a lot of the issues that plagued the game, it disables many of the mods.

The GTA V modding community has reported that after the recent 350.1 patch, modes stopped working. It's possible that the new patch makes Script Hook V unusable, so players would have to revert to the previous version in order to be able to use mods.

Rockstar does not support mods, so this could have been a deliberate move from the company, but further examination into the subject is expected soon. we will keep you informed with any updates on the issue.
