GTA 5 Easter eggs don’t seem exactly a surprise, since Rockstar has a long history of slipping in allusions to its previous titles and popular culture in general. With a world as large as the one designed for GTA 5, there’s plenty of room to slip in these references, so unless you’re lucky and stumble upon them by chance, you’re likely to miss them totally. We wouldn’t like you to miss out on anything, so we’ve compiled a list of the places you must see, allowing you to discover the oddest and most intriguing secrets.
James Bond’s Aston Martin
After completing the Deep Inside assignment with Michael, a very unusual automobile – the JB 700 – will be available for purchase on the Legendary Motorsport website. It has an obvious similarity to the most iconic Bond vehicle. Unfortunately, the connected machine guns have been removed by the dealership.
The Frozen Alien
The Frozen Alien is an easter egg that took a while to locate in the game when it was published in 2013. The easter egg is an alien sealed in ice that players may discover during GTA V’s opening prologue. Stop just before you hit the railway lines as you drive away from the cops after stealing the bank. A detour will be visible down the right side of a slope. Take the detour and continue until you reach the frozen river. Get out of the car and go to the center of the ice. An alien will be frozen in the water, looking at you. You can’t remain long, though, because the task will fail if you leave your car for too long.
No Country for Old Men Reference
No Country for Old Men was launched in 2007, most likely during the development of GTA V. The developers at Rockstar must have liked it so much that they included the movie’s opening sequence in GTA V. If you go to the Mount Chiliad State Wilderness, there is a little dirt road that goes to a clearing with four automobiles around it. There are dead people nearby, as well as a suitcase with $25,000 at the foot of the slope past the automobiles. This is all taken directly from the film.
Bigfoot was initially included in a GTA game back in San Andreas. Bigfoot may be seen a couple of times in Los Santos throughout his story mode. You play as Franklin in the mission “The Last One,” and you can track down “Sasquatch.” However, this turns out to be only a guy in a costume scaring folks in the woods. To see the “real” Bigfoot, you must complete the task “Predator.” In this mission, you take on the role of Michael, who is attempting to snipe the O’Neil brothers using a thermal sniper.
If you point that sniper at the woods, you’ll notice a body in the lower right corner. That is Bigfoot, not one of the O’Neil brothers. Bigfoot’s heat signature will vanish after a time, so make sure you capture him as soon as possible.
The Ghost of Mount Gordo
If you go to the top of Mount Gordo between 11:00 and 12:00 a.m., you will see a woman dressed in white appear above a bloodstained message. The note reads “Jock,” a reference to Jock Cranley, a character from earlier GTA games. Jock’s wife is the ghost you see above this message. You probably don’t want to go too close to the ghost.
The Serial Killer
Rockstar Games carved a poem about an alleged serial killer on a rock in Senora National Park, maybe inspired by prominent serial murderers such as the Zodiac. Look for the park’s welcome sign at Sandy Shores, then spin around to find a rock with the following poem inscribed on it. To add to the creepiness, when you approach the rock that repeats the text, music will play. Children will sing the song for you, adding to the easter egg’s overall intrigue.
This easter egg on our list is an homage to one of history’s most iconic houses. Because GTA V is located in the fictitious city of Los Santos, which is modeled after the real-life metropolis of Los Angeles, it’s only natural that Rockstar Games recreated the Playboy Mansion. In the Richman neighborhood, there’s a pink-lit estate with a wrap-around driveway, gorgeous landscaping, and a pool party going on. When you visit this estate at night, you’ll find naked girls, drinks, and an all-night party.
An underwater UFO is another easter egg in GTA V. This might be the ship that the Frozen Alien used to travel to Los Santos. However, you may dive down in the Submersible or with diving equipment at the far northern region of the map’s ocean to witness this UFO sitting on the sea bottom. Simply proceed to the map’s northernmost point, drop your Submersible into the ocean, and dive below.
Links to previous GTA games
Grand Theft Auto has always made allusions to itself, but GTA 5 is jam-packed with characters and callbacks to past games. Marnie and the Lost motorcycle gang make an appearance in GTA 4. Lester refers to Niko as “some Eastern European guy.” Then there’s the charming sign shown above, which welcomes gamers back to Los Santos. After all, the world is a small place.
Red Dead Redemption Book
Everyone’s beloved Red Dead Redemption hero makes a brief appearance in GTA 5. Examine Franklin’s bookcase in the Vinewood Hills condo. The title of a specific blue book is “Red Dead,” and it was authored by J. Marston.
