Do it while you still can. As of Wednesday, the “god mode” glitch in “Grand Theft Auto Online” that gives players the gift of invincibility still worked in the open world, action adventure game. Some users complained the same Superman-like invulnerability also applied to vehicles.

A number of users were also able to walk on air, as demonstrated by YouTuber DomisLive in the video below.

In late July, New York City-based developer Rockstar (NASDAQ: TTWO) began cracking down on in-game cheaters. Many YouTubers shared their experiences online, saying the company was banning certain players from the game after they were caught cheating.

In January this year, Rockstar also took an aggressive stance against “Grand Theft Auto Online” glitchers. It announced that any players who are caught taking advantage of “Grand Theft Auto V’s” online mode by creating and doling out large amounts of in-game cash would be placed in an “isolated cheater pool” with others or eventually removed from the game completely.

“Those who actively engaged in cheating and exploiting the game in this manner will, however, be subject to in-game penalties at our discretion,” the developer said on its website. “This may include being placed in isolated cheater pools or banned from GTA Online altogether.”

Rockstar also warned active players to keep an eye out for any type of malicious activity. The company gave gamers clear instructions on how to deal with in-game cheaters: “Should you ever encounter someone in ‘GTA Online’ that appears to be taking advantage of exploits in your session, we ask that you alert us directly via the in-game reporting functionality. In the Pause menu, under the Online tab, select Players and scroll to the offending player. From there, select Report and choose Exploits from the violation options.”

Are you still able to access the game’s “god mode?” Leave a comment below.
