During a race in Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto Online, one skilled player managed to recreate an iconic 2 Fast 2 Furious stunt.
One Grand Theft Auto Online player recently managed to recreate an iconic racing scene from 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious. The movie scene in question sees the late Paul Walker (Brian O’Conner) and Michael Ealy (Slap Jack) race along an empty highway. Though Ealy’s character takes the lead early on, Walker’s Brian O’Conner comes out on top thanks in part to a well-timed jump.
One of the more iconic aspects of the film is the car driven by Walker, a silver 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R with blue racing stripes. This version of the Nissan sports car quickly secured itself among pop culture’s most recognizable vehicles. Great tourism players, for example, have long modeled their in-game vehicles after the custom 2 Fast 2 Furious car. And, unsurprisingly, there’s a Nissan Skyline-inspired vehicle in GTA Online. Suffice it to say, the beloved racing film has inspired Grand Theft Auto’s online suite in a few other ways, as well.
Recently, Reddit user XWilsXXInsaneX shared a clip of a stunt they pulled while racing in GTA Online. The video begins with the player trailing behind another car, but a well-timed jump à la 2 Fast 2 Furious allows them to literally soar above the competition and take the lead. XWilsXXInsaneX took notice of the similarities between their accomplishment and the aforementioned Paul Walker and Michael Ealy race; thus, the Reddit video concludes with a clip from the actual movie scene. Check it out in the video linked below:
The impressive overtake stunt seems to have happened accidentally, but it clearly worked out for the Grand Theft Auto Online player in the end. Hopefully, they sealed the deal by winning the race in full.
Racing has become a much more important facet of the GTA Online experience in recent weeks, courtesy of the title’s Los Santos Tuners update, which went live in late July. The big summer update added a slew of new features to the experience, including Auto Shop property ownership, robbery Contracts, LS Car Meet, new customizable cars, and, of course, a whole host of races. How else Rockstar plans on further expanding upon the multiplayer suite isn’t yet known, but the forthcoming release of GTA V on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S will soon give players another reason to re-explore the main campaign.
Grand Theft Auto Online is available to play across PC, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms.
