How to use Car Boost in GTA 5 PC

GTA Online is an evolving online experience and two updates are planned for this year, with the next update looking to add entirely new locations.

The game has seen a lot of changes over the years and players may take some time to adjust to all the new elements returning to the game after a long time. The Arena Wars update was one of the most notable updates to GTA Online and added a ton of community-favorite elements to the game.

The update sees the Maze Bank Arena transformed into a modern coliseum with high-powered gasoline-powered shiny Arena War vehicles. These vehicles were created with the sole purpose of destroying their opponents and can be heavily modified in the Arena Battle Workshop.

Players can kit out their vehicles with machine guns and other types of weapons in GTA Online, and one of the most popular modifications for Arena War Vehicles is the Shunt Boost.

The Shunt Boost effectively turns the vehicle into a wrecking ball that is almost guaranteed to smash whoever dares drive alongside the player. It is one of the most powerful modifications to one’s vehicle, and has wreaked havoc in GTA Online’s Freemode.

The Shunt Boost can be purchased from the Arena War Workshop and can only be applied to Arena War vehicles. It is used to take out opponents in either direction of your vehicle.

Here’s what players need to press to do a shunt boost in Grand Theft Auto Online, depending on their platform:

  • PC: Hold X + Press LMB/RMB
  • PlayStation: Hold X + Press L1/R1
  • Xbox: Hold A + Press LB/RB

The boost can also be used to maneuver around a corner and add more mobility to the vehicle. The amount of boost in the car is indicated by the yellow bar alongside Health and Armor. This bar indicates the Special Ability in the Story Mode, and is used to indicate the level of boost. It refills automatically over time and doesn’t take long to reach full capacity.
