You can finally play as Bigfoot in GTA 5!

GTA players have found a hidden Easter egg that allows you to play as Bigfoot.

Bigfoot has long been a myth amongst hardcore GTA players, just waiting to be discovered amongst the mountains of Los Santos.

It turns out that Bigfoot really is a thing, and he is even a playable character in GTA 5, following the latest update.

Players have discovered an Easter egg that lets you play as the legendary Sasquatch.

Some clever Redditers noticed a new achievement/trophy titled Cryptozoologist. The accolade is earned by unlocking all characters for use in the Rockstar Editor.

However, the cryptic text that describes the achievement, “You unlocked all animals for use in Director Mode… or did you?” suggests we may be missing something.

After digging through the game’s script, Redditers discovered that a new Peyote plant had appeared in-game, which could only lead to Bigfoot.

To find the Peyote plant you need to set the weather to foggy on PC (snow on PS4/Xbox One) and head to the following coordinates at 5:30-8:30am on a Tuesday morning:

-1472.531, 4439.456, 18.862.

You will also need to have completed the main game and cleared the mission The Last One without killing Bigfoot, otherwise the plant might not appear.

Rockstar hasn’t made Bigfoot easy to find, that’s for sure.

If you fancy watching Bigfoot in action, Youtuber 2H2K has you covered. It turns out Bigfoot not only knows how to drive, but can also use a shotgun!
