GTA Myths That Turned Out To Be True

September 5, 2019

It took enterprising players recording their
findings to prove that these myths were real – or, at least, y’know, real glitches. Either way, we owe it to them to talk about
the wild stuff they found. These are just a handful of some of the weirdest
proven myths in Grand Theft Auto. In Grand Theft Auto 5, players have noticed
a curious icon in the corner of a mural in Mount Chilead, which appears to resemble a
stick figure on a jetpack. Eagle-eyed players have also noticed a sticker
of a man with a jetpack in Lester Crest’s home. Naturally, these little crumbs have led many
to believe that Rockstar put these in as hints, trying to tell gamers that such a device is
actually somewhere in GTA 5. In fact, hackers eventually found source code
for jetpacks within GTA 5, which seemed to point to the devices being available in a
future DLC. “Where’s your jetpack, Zuckerberg?” GTA 5 players’ jetpack dreams finally came
true when they were introduced in Grand Theft Auto Online, released as part of the Doomsday
Heist update. The jetpacks are expensive, but they can be
upgraded with all the bells and whistles your gravity-defying, bank-robbing heart desires. Unlike some other GTA oddities, which have
special conditions that must be met in order to play out, one particularly depressing NPC
seems to pop up any time, in any weather. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – which is
probably the most haunted game in the series – this particular pedestrian may spawn at
the edge of the Los Santos Inlet, taking photos of the view. After a bit, they’ll lower their camera, walk
straight into the water, and die, giving the appearance that they wanted to take one last
serene photo before shuffling off this mortal coil. “Um… Are you okay… dude?” One possible explanation is that the inlet
originally extended farther than it does in the final version of the game, but the NPCs
movement path wasn’t edited when the landscape was changed by the development team. The result is one of the saddest tourists
in gaming history. While it could be argued that a few of the
so-called haunted vehicles in the Grand Theft Auto series could be victims of gravity, merely
careening down hills or what have you, these ghostly locomotives defy the laws of physics
entirely. In GTA 5 and Online, it’s possible to encounter
train cars that are moving along the tracks without an engine car, let alone a driver. The GTA Wiki posits that this may be a glitch
caused by overcrowded online servers. Whatever the cause behind these strange trains,
the weirdest part isn’t the fact that they’re moving without an engine. No, the strangest thing about them is that
they seem to pick and choose when they’re made of solid matter. Players are not able to push the trains along
with one of their own vehicles, as though they’re made of sterner stuff than some locomotives
in GTA. However, players have also observed other
trains on the same tracks can drive through these phantoms like they’re not even there. These inconsistencies in the trains’, well,
consistency is what makes spotting one of these ghost locomotives such a memorable experience. Let’s be honest: of all of the vehicles that
could come to life and move of their own volition, the scariest would have to be helicopters,
right? Imagine looking up and seeing the whirling
blades of a phantom helicopter bearing down on you. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, you can sometimes
spot pilot-less helicopters roaming the city skies. If you’re flying your own vehicle, you can
even pass straight through them on occasion. Freaked out yet? “That was TOO spooky!” And if that wasn’t puzzling enough, here’s
where it gets even more bizarre: if you shoot down one of these ghost helicopters, you will
immediately receive a three-star Wanted level. Now why on earth would that happen? The only logical explanation is that the Vice
City Police Department was clearly employing poltergeists in the ’80s. Suddenly, every single time you’ve gotten
a Wanted level for doing something that you thought was unseen makes complete sense. It seems like every neighborhood in Grand
Theft Auto: San Andreas is a bad neighborhood, so spotting graffiti in the game isn’t a particularly
odd sight. What makes this particular bit of tagging
notable is its habit of vanishing and reappearing on a schedule. This ghostly graffiti can be found in the
Vinewood Cemetery. It says, “Families 4 Life,” which seems pretty
on-brand for one of the Grove Street Families in the game. However, if you look closely, you can see
what appears to be a “666” incorporated into the design – and what’s creepier, it only
appears during the night, from around 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., and then vanishes with the morning
light. You know, the kind of thing that non-paranormal
graffiti totally doesn’t do. Whether it’s a glitch or an intentional spooky
touch on Rockstar’s part, one thing’s for certain: it’s proof that it feels good to
be a gangsta – even after death. “When I’m gone, everybody’s gonna remember
