Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 really has a bad reputation when someone goes out of their way to make a GTA 5 mod about it.

If you haven’t heard the news by now, the Galaxy Note 7 has been making headlines across the globe after numerous instances of the device randomly giving off smoke, exploding, and catching fire. Even after a massive recall, replaced units were also suffering the same fate.

Samsung has since paused production of its Note 7 units and has urged all stores to discontinue the sale of its remaining stock.

GTA 5 modder HitmanNiko went through the trouble of making an exploding Galaxy Note 7 which can be purchased at Ammunation stores. The mod (which can be downloaded here) is actually a texture replacement for the sticky bomb.

See it in action below.
