You Won’t Be Banned for Using GTA 5 Single-Player Mods, Rockstar Says


Good news for GTA 5 fans! In a new Q&A on the Rockstar Newswire, the GTA 5 developer confirms that players won’t be banned for using single-player mods.

The full statement is below:

We have always appreciated the creative efforts of the PC modding community and we still fondly remember the awesome zombie invasion mod and original GTA map mod for GTAIV PC among many other classics. To be clear, the modding policy in our license has not changed and is the same as for GTAIV. Recent updates to GTAV PC had an unintended effect of making unplayable certain single player modifications. This was not intentional, no one has been banned for using single player modifications, and you should not worry about being banned or being relegated to the cheater pool just for using single player PC mods. Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. It also bears mentioning that because game mods are by definition unauthorized, they may be broken by technical updates, cause instability, or affect your game in other unforeseen ways.”

Rockstar ensures players that single-player mods are safe to use, as long as it doesn’t cross into GTA Online, but Rockstar can’t promise that mods won’t sometimes be broken by updates.

There have been rumors saying that some players were unfairly banned due to false positive detections of modding. However, the truth might be that those banned players were actually using hacks or mods that would have given them an unfair advantage in the multiplayer section.
