Grand Theft Auto V is currently free to claim on the Epic Games Store, and you should definitely get it. The game came out on PC back in 2015, and you can imagine how well off most existing players are. New players will definitely struggle as lobbies in GTA V aren’t populated based on levels. Here’s how you can avoid being killed in GTA Online.
The method we’ll share is available for everyone playing, and we recommend using it if you are having a hard time. Players can easily access it, and we recommend you use it, especially in the earlier part of GTA Online, which requires a lot of grinding.
Avoid being killed in GTA Online for Newbies
Here are a few ways you can avoid being killed in GTA Online, if you are a new player.
1) Passive Mode
After you have died at least once in-game, you can turn on Passive Mode. In Passive Mode, a player becomes immune to firearms in PvP combat, and likewise, they can’t shoot at other players as well. If they enter a vehicle, that also becomes immune to other player’s damage and will appear in a ghost-like transparent form.
To enable passive mode, follow the steps below.
PC (Steam/Epic Games Store)
If you are on PC, follow the steps below to enter passive mode
Open the Interaction Menu by pressing the M key
Scroll down and find “Enable Passive Mode” and Press Enter
If you are on PS4, follow the steps below to enter passive mode
Open the Interaction Menu by holding down the left side of the Dualshock 4 touchpad
Scroll down and find “Enable Passive Mode” and press X
If you are on Xbox One, follow the steps below to enter passive mode
Open the Interaction Menu by pressing the View Button
Scroll down and find “Enable Passive Mode” and press A
2) Invite Only Session
Players can also enter an “Invite Only Session”, where only their friends can be added after they invite them. This means that they can play GTA Online alone or with their friends only.
