Avid GTA Online gamers are in for some great news as they can now undergo a one-time character gender change as well as rest assured that Rockstar has now given more power to moderators and server administrators to ensure fair-play, while banning repeat defaulters, hackers, modders and cheaters. Renowned YouTuber MrBossFTW (aka Ross) shares some useful tips and tricks for changing your character's gender in GTA Online, while also playing safe to avoid the ban from Rockstar.
As Ross explains in his latest gameplay video for GTA Online, Rockstar has added new anti-cheater protocols and system code into their game servers with the release of Freemode update. This new anti-cheater system regularly monitors all the players' account balance, acquired weapons, vehicles and properties and compares them with the threshold value coded into the stats server. If any player's stats exceed the limit, then the Rockstar support team will immediately receive an alert message from the server.
With due credit to user LondonTown2004 and se7ensins gaming forum, it is ascertained that a lot of new anti-cheater coding and Rockstar's ability to change a player's gender (one-time only) on request would invariably change the gameplay experience for all avid fans of GTA Online. Besides, it has been clarified that the gender change is possible only while creating a new game account via Rockstar's Social Club.
As part of the changes introduced into the new anti-cheat and banning system, Rockstar has now corrected the stats of various accounts with huge amounts of snacks, owning unlimited bullets, massive amounts of RP and money in bank and wallet cash, apart from possessing unattainable weapons. For instance, a new line of code for Ammo Stat Correction code in the game (see screenshot below) seems to prevent players from getting unlimited body armour, unlimited snacks and unlimited bullets using mods and cheats through hack/script tools or trainers.
