Rockstar Games posted more clarification in regards to the recent bans being issued in “GTA Online” following the release of the 1.08 patch for “GTA 5.” According to a conversation from the Rockstar Support Twitter page on Dec. 31, one fan wanted to know if players can get banned by spending the hacked money that was gifted. Another individual wanted to know if collecting bounties containing the illegitimate cash would also result in a ban.

A staff member from the support team responded by saying that players from both aforementioned cases will not be punished. He went on reiterate that users “have nothing to worry about” if they aren’t cheating and modding.

Rockstar Games previously confirmed that the development team won’t be punishing individuals who reluctantly received a large sum of in-game currency that came from a hacker. It appears that spending and obtaining the bounties from the illegitimate cash won’t be classified as cheating and modding either.

To combat the latest round of hacks, Rockstar Games recently released a hot fix patch to “GTA 5.” As a result, modified lobbies have been essentially disabled. The company is also planning to release more patches to address the cheating and modding problems that are plaguing “GTA Online.”
