My character got 5000 ranks today

Question

FatnSlo

Today my 139 rank character was in his garage watching a security camera. When I exited the camera my character was suddenly rank 5139 so somebody modded my character while I was away. Restarting the game did not fix. I have sent Rockstar a support ticket.

 

Is this common? I have read lots of complaints about people's rank getting set to 1, but none about being increased by 5000.

 

Will Rockstar fix or am I stuck with this which will mean I am done with this game? I am on PC.

Crucially, which platform are you on - PC or one of the old gen consoles?

 

Rockstar can reset your rank to what it was previously so just bear with them for that.

I am on PC. Glad to hear they should fix it, but sucks that this happens.

Ahh that's not good as that's bypassing the 150 'rank-up in one go' limit or whatever it is for yourself. Probably some newer way of doing stuff... more remote stuff for Rockstar to patch.

 

Yeah if you ever get really bored or have a large vat of wine, this thread has some interesting information and replies in it: PSA - PC Players: Risk of Fraud and Outfit Manipulation

The like above was for the large vat of wine comment. Obviously not a good situation if remote rank manipulation is returning...

Well, it's not common, but happened sometimes.
Don't worry, Rockstar should fix it, since you made a ticket.

Just wait for rockstar to fix it with your ticket, happened to me too, just not that many levels, just 100 something.

Took a few days, but Rockstar did return me to my real rank of 139. Definitely less motivated to play the game now as this could just happen again and again.
