While some GTA players are already looking forward to GTA 6, others are still trying to make the most of their remaining time in Los Santos.

After all, if you don’t enjoy trying to predict what the next game’s map will look like, lack any hot takes regarding what it should include, and have given up on planning out your first playthrough, why not just try to appreciate the final stretch of GTA Online?

While some players have been doing so by cosplaying as Spiderman, organising pranks or hosting demolition derbies, others are adding new entries to the already impressive annals of Scramjet stunting history.

Have you ever managed to solve your GTA griefer issues by transforming into an automotive Lionel Messi?

Their flawless flight forms the subject of a recent thread on the GTA Online subreddit, which began with a post from the player themselves, user MarcusDaLongis, who declared: “(I) took out a jet griefer Rocket League-style.” and shared a clip of the death-defying deed.

This video sees MarcusDaLongis riding along in their Scramjet narrowly escape a barrage of missiles from their airborne attacker, before turning around and using boost to launch into the air and collide with the jet as it swings around for another pass over the area, before landing safely.

While their fellow players in the thread were pretty impressed by the feat, a lot of them seemed distracted by the passenger that had been sharing MarcusDaLongis’ ride at the beginning of the clip, only to bail out prior to the jump, leading user International_Ad5296 to accuse them of being a chicken. Thankfully, user SilverRathalosMHFU was a little more forgiving, saying: “The passenger is just like ‘I didn't sign up for any of this!’”.

Meanwhile, user WaterCorpse found the fact that the exchange took place near a church quite poetic, musing: “(I) love the way you land in the graveyard (after the stunt), ready to bury (them).”

Regardless of whether you think griefer kills should be the subject of melodious prose more often, make sure to follow us for more GTA 6 and GTA Online updates as new vehicles and more arrive.
