In a surprising twist, Rockstar Games has rolled out not one, not two, but three spanking new background updates for the much-loved GTA Online. This move was a response to a medley of issues that cropped up in the recent summer update, aptly named GTA Online San Andreas Mercenaries.
The inside scoop on these updates comes from the reliable community insider, Tez2. This chap has been kind enough to share the nitty-gritty of these updates on Twitter. Some of these fixes were long overdue, with community members grappling with issues like weapon loadouts for the Cayo Perico Heist and the Mobile Operations Center resetting.

They also patched a few glitches involving Agency Services, interaction menus, and the Avenger’s Stealth Module.
While Rockstar Games is known for releasing extensive patch notes for all updates, these background updates were not publicly communicated to the wider GTA Online community. With the invaluable contributions from Twitter insider Tez, we now have incredible insights into the remarkable enhancements implemented within the game to rectify any issues arising from the recent DLC update during the summer.
Grand Theft Auto Online is updated and raring to go now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
