Take-Two has targeted another GTA V mod after shutting down the popular OpenIV tool. Force Hax is a modding menu that’s used to cheat in GTA Online, not only giving users infinite money, but it messes with other players money and vehicles too.

“After discussions with Take-Two Interactive, effective immediately we are ceasing all maintenance, development and distribution of the Force Hax cheat menu services. We will be donating our proceeds to charity and we apologize for any and all problems Force Hax services have caused to the Grand Theft Auto Online community.”
Force Hax was not free, and users were charged $15 to use the cheat tool, which explains why Take-Two is making the creators donate to charity.
