Mod: Home Invasion

While you can rob stores with ease, you can"t actually burgle someone"s house in GTA 5. Until now. The trang chủ Invasion gian lận allows you to enter certain houses either stealthily or guns blazing, then rob the inhabitants at gunpoint. Some homeowners will fight back and there are seven different house types, including mansions.

Mod: Real California Architecture

Los Santos is wonderful, and while some areas are visibly inspired by real-world locations, there"s no avoiding the fact it is an entirely fictional đô thị. The Real California Architecture mod is an add-on that aims khổng lồ change that, with countless real-world inclusions like the Hollywood Sign, Hollywood Wax Museum, Compton City Hall, two In-N-Out locations, the Beverly Hills Hotel, và more.

3. Turn Los Santos into lớn a photorealistic gangster’s paradise

Mod: NaturalVision Remastered

You can’t talk about GTA 5 mods without paying respects to all the coders out there tirelessly attempting to make Los Santos look as breathtakingly beautiful as possible. There’s literally hundreds of graphics enhancement mods available for GTA 5, but NaturalVision Remastered is the current champion when it comes to raw “phwoar” power.

Offering 4K resolutions và a complete overhaul of Rockstar’s original aesthetic, the hack was designed to lớn make "GTA 5 look visually similar to lớn Southern California in real life.” To be honest, the results look better than real life SoCal ever could. NaturalVision pushes Los Santos out of the realm of uncanny valley and into a cấp độ of graphical fidelity that redefines photorealism.

4. Become Iron Man

Mod: Script Hook V / Iron Man Script 2.0

“I am Iron Man” said Iron Man in Iron Man, & you can say it too if you install this forever popular thủ thuật on lớn your GTA 5 save.

You can even customise it with different versions of the suit, including the beefy Hulkbuster armour that swaps agility for raw strength. Tony Stark would be proud.

5. Return khổng lồ Vice City

Mod: Vice Cry: Remastered

GTA: Vice City holds a fond place in many players" hearts, but even with the updated versions released by Rockstar it"s still looking rather dated. Not so in Vice Cry: Remastered, a port of the popular Vice Cry mod for Vice City, which gives the fictional Miami a beautiful makeover complete with rippling waters và shimmering sunsets.

As well as properly mapped roads, oto generators, and working traffic lights, there are new missions dropping which make this so much more than just a cosmetic makeover. It"s definitely worth popping on a Hawaiian shirt và heading baông xã lớn the "80s khổng lồ kiểm tra this one out.

6. Pretover you’re playing Blade Runner in a neon-soaked Los Santos

Mod: Intensity ENB

If Cyberpunk 2077 wasn"t quite your thing, you can at least enjoy Grand Theft Aukhổng lồ 2013 by dressing it up in a neon aesthetic with this visual mod. Intensity ENB dials up the contrast between colours khổng lồ 11, lending this ethereal, miasmic chất lượng to Los Santos that’s drenched in atmosphere, especially when it also happens lớn be drenched in rainfall.

7. Create an underwater megalopolis by triggering a tsunami

Mod: No Water + Tsunangươi + Atlantis

All the best cities are underwater. Think about it; Atlantis, Rapture, that one from The Phantom Menace… okay, maybe not all the best cities, but a fair few of them at least. So what’s stopping you from seeing whether Los Santos fares any better once submerged beneath ten thousands tonnes of H2O?

Seriously, you can try it now with this gian lận, which brings in a Tsunamày khổng lồ unleash waves of salty sea water upon the town, where only the highest skyscrapers can be seen above the surface. It’s an in-game natural disaster that has khổng lồ be seen to lớn be believed.

8. Take realism to lớn a whole new level

Mod:GTA Realism

If you’re someone who likes lớn obey every traffic light và speed limit sign as you drive across SoCal, this hyper realism thủ thuật will be right up your alley. It adds a host of small but clever details to lớn GTA 5 that are designed khổng lồ make everything feel that little bit more tactile and naturalistic.

Pedestrians drop wallets, weapons have sầu to lớn be physically picked up, there’s bleeding effects when you’re shot, cops act more strategically, you can replaced flat tires with spare ones in the trunk, bullets have sầu projectile drops, and tons more. It turns the Gr& Theft Auto experience inlớn a full on crime simulation, and it’s rather brilliant.

9. Become a knock-off Rico Rodriguez with Just Cause 2 gadgets

Mod: Just Cause 2 Eject + Parachute Thrusters, Just Cause 2 grappling hook mod

While GTA has always been great for causing all sorts of mayhem, it never quite comes cđại bại lớn the sort of sandbox madness you can generate in equally outrageous open world series Just Cause.

But thanks lớn this unofficial crossover, you can now enjoy Rico Rodriguez’s grappling hook, parachute thrusters, and more in GTA 5, using these bespoke Just Cause flavoured mods. It even makes cars explode whenever you jump out of them, which is great for dealing with all those pesky roadblocks.

10. Cross the fence and play GTA from the cops’ perspective

Mod: LSPD First Response

They say the best way lớn defeat the enemy is lớn know the enemy, so why not sign up with the Los Santos Police Department & walk a mile in the shoes of a local cop for the day?

There are detailed missions, police-themed weapons và vehicles, and customisation options for you to lớn tuchồng into lớn lớn get the full LSPD experience. Who knows, maybe you’ll kết thúc up preferring it your previous life of crime?

11. Pay for your crimes the hard way by going to prison

Mod: Prison Mod

Speaking of police, how come you never get khổng lồ see what happens between the time you’re busted and the moment you walk out of the hospital or police station as a không lấy phí man? I know Grvà Theft Auto has a loose conception of the notion of justice, but surely some judicial system is in place in Los Santos?

This prison mod has the answer, incarcerating you whenever you’re caught by the police, whereby you’re able khổng lồ walk around the jailhouse, interact with NPCs, và even try to lớn break out. Or, you know, you could just serve your time & try to come out a changed man? Nah, that sounds boring; prison break it is!

12. Use vehicles as bullets for maximum carnage

Mod: Vehicle Cannon 2.0

I don’t really need lớn explain this one, vì I? It’s a vehicle cannon. A cannon that shoots vehicles. You can fire the cannon at things (other vehicles, if you want to lớn be funny about it), và vehicles come out the other kết thúc.

It sounds ridiculous. It is ridiculous. But it certainly gives you the upper hand in a firefight, và I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t huge amounts of fun.

13. Unleash carmageddon

Mod: Mayhem/Carmageddon mod

Everyone loves GTA 5’s perfectly portrayed explosions, quite possibly the best đoạn phim game “booms” next to lớn, well, GTA 4. But, frankly, they don’t come frequently enough when you’re driving down the highway, cruising along to lớn your favourite radio station. This gian lận means that any car within a reasonable distance lớn you will explode on cue, hence the ‘carmageddon’ namesake. You’ll be at a five star wanted rating in no time, but that’s no bother; the police cars will explode as soon as they get near you.

14. Take a walk on the interior side

Mod: xuất hiện All Interiors

Only a select few buildings in Los Santos are open khổng lồ the public, apparently, as everything apart from the gun stores, strip clubs, và oto dealerships are bolted shut with no conceivable entry points. I’ll give you three guesses lớn figure out what the “mở cửa All Interiors” mod does...

While there’s no amazing secrets hidden within any of the newly available buildings, they vị make Los Santos feel that little bit more immersive, & are perfect for hideouts when on the run from the cops.

15. Survive sầu the Los Santos zombie apocalypse

Mod: Simple Zombies

The last time Rockstar gave sầu us a zombie game was all the way bachồng in 2010 with Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, which has given us plenty of time lớn work up an appetite for more undead bedlam.

Simple Zombies turns GTA 5 inkhổng lồ a mini survival syên ổn, where players must survive an infested Los Santos by building shelters, managing their health and hunger, and recruiting fellow survivors littered throughout the zombie-filled landscape. It’s a fairly comprehensive game mode, và can be proper terrifying at times.

16. Amp up the ragdoll physics

Mod: Euphoria Ragdoll Overhaul

If one minor quibble is khổng lồ be made about GTA 5, it’s that the ragdoll physics engine were never quite up lớn par next khổng lồ other Rockstar titles like Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3, & GTA 4.

The Euphoria Ragdoll Overhaul goes back to the drawing board và tries to lớn bring the physics closer in line with those games, throwing more realistic animations, reactions, và visual touches inlớn the mix. Firefights & car chases will unfold in new ways, while the slapstiông xã comedy is never better here, so it’s definitely a must add gian lận for your collection.

17. Hulk smash

Mod: Hulk script mod

Video games can be a great outlet for găng, & what better metaphor is there for unleashing anger than Bruce Banner turning inlớn a giant green rage monster & wrecking havoc across the city?

This Hulk thủ thuật lets you leap miles into lớn the sky as Hulk, picking up cars & throwing them at your leisure, và generally having a great time terrorising the people of Los Santos with reckless abandon. Make sure you wait till the military arrives, too, as that’s where things get really fun.

18. Live large in a luxury safehouse

Mod: Marlowe Valley Safehouse/Airport

Materialism is the name of the game for Michael, Franklin, and… well, maybe not Trevor, but the more unnecessary ‘stuff’ you can have sầu in Grvà Theft Aulớn 5, the better. Sure, that luxury apartment of yours is nice, but what about a country safehouse, complete with car parks, helicopter pads, and airplane runways?

There’s even a working bar where you can host Great Gatsby-esque parties. Just make sure none of your guests have access to lớn that military fighter jet tucked away in the garage.

19. Become SUPERHOT


Superhot’s central concept - that time only moves when you bởi - is so clever and brilliant that someone simply had to see what happens when you translate that khổng lồ GTA 5. Suffice khổng lồ say, the results are pretty spectacular. It’s lượt thích the Matrix, except you’re not an enlightened revolutionary but an angry Trevor, & you’re not shooting Agent Smiths but innocent policemen. Ok, it’s not exactly The Matrix, but it still pretty fun lớn enjoy Max Payne-style bullet time in the freed expanses of Rockstar’s urban jungle.

20. Whistle while you wreak havoc with the điện thoại radio

Mod: Smartphone Radio

It’s a tiny, tiny change, but it really does make all the difference. Picture this; you’re in your oto, driving along to lớn a banging tune, but are forced to lớn leave sầu the vehicle because, oh I don’t know, said oto is now hurtling down a cliff và seconds away from exploding.
