The Rockstar Games representative replied by providing a list of bad sport actions that could have lead to the player’s banning. Individuals could get in trouble by being kicked from missions or leaving jobs too early. They could also be banned by destroying personal vehicles and being reported by others. You can check out a few screens from both “GTA 5” and its “Grand Theft Auto Online” mode in the slideshow to the left of this article and the list of bad sport actions below:

Bad sport actions include: Being kicked from jobs, leaving jobs early, blowing up personal vehicles, & being reported

The same fan responded by saying that he did not partake in any of the aforementioned activities. The representative then suggested that he should send in a request form so that his situation could be further investigated. Other players have complained about the bad sport feature in the past due to its methods of determining the offensive actions and restrictions being imposed.

Both “GTA 5” and “Grand Theft Auto Online” are now available for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 current-generation consoles. The two products were developed by Rockstar North, a subsidiary of Rockstar Games.
