Los Santos is wonderful, và while some areas are visibly inspired by real-world locations, there"s no avoiding the fact it is an entirely fictional city.

4. Turn Los Santos into a photorealistic gangster’s paradise


Mod: NaturalVision Remastered (opens in new tab)

You can’t talk about GTA 5 mods without paying respects to lớn all the coders out there tirelessly attempting khổng lồ 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 lớn raw “phwoar” power.

If Cyberpunk 2077 wasn"t quite your thing, you can at least enjoy Grand Theft tự động 2013 by dressing it up in a neon aesthetic with this visual mod. Intensity ENB dials up the contrast between colours lớn 11, lending this ethereal, miasmic unique to Los Santos that’s drenched in atmosphere, especially when it also happens to lớn be drenched in rainfall. The game’s lighting effects have been intensified too, meaning you’ll often feel like you’re in a J.J. Abrams movie just as much as a cyberpunk flick.

7. Create an underwater megalopolis by triggering a tsunami


Mod: No Water + Tsunami + Atlantis (opens in new tab)

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 mod, which brings in a Tsunami to 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 lớn be believed.

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


Mod: Just Cause 2 Eject + Parachute Thrusters, Just Cause 2 grappling hook mod (opens in new tab)

While GTA has always been great for causing all sorts of mayhem, it never quite comes close khổng lồ the sort of sandbox madness you can generate in equally outrageous xuất hiện world series Just Cause.

But thanks to 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.

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


Mod: LSPD First Response (opens in new tab)

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

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

10. Pay for your crimes the hard way by going lớn prison


Mod: Prison Mod (opens in new tab)

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

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

11. Unleash carmageddon


Mod: Mayhem/Carmageddon mod (opens in new tab)

Everyone loves GTA 5’s perfectly portrayed explosions, quite possibly the best clip game “booms” next to, 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 hack means that any oto within a reasonable distance to 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.

12. Take a walk on the interior side


Mod: Open All Interiors (opens in new tab)

Only a select few buildings in Los Santos are mở cửa to the public, apparently, as everything apart from the gun stores, strip clubs, & car dealerships are bolted shut with no conceivable entry points. I’ll give you three guesses to figure out what the “Open All Interiors” hack does...

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

13. Survive the Los Santos zombie apocalypse


Mod: Simple Zombies (opens in new tab)

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

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

14. Amp up the ragdoll physics


Mod: Euphoria Ragdoll Overhaul (opens in new tab)

If one minor quibble is khổng lồ be made about GTA 5, it’s that the ragdoll physics engine were never quite up khổng lồ par next lớn other Rockstar titles lượt thích Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne 3, and 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, and visual touches into the mix. Firefights và car chases will unfold in new ways, while the slapstick comedy is never better here, so it’s definitely a must địa chỉ mod for your collection.

15. Hulk smash


Mod: Hulk script mod (opens in new tab)

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

This Hulk thủ thuật lets you leap miles into the sky as Hulk, picking up cars và 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.

16. Live large in a luxury safehouse


Mod: Marlowe Valley Safehouse/Airport (opens in new tab)

Materialism is the name of the trò chơi for Michael, Franklin, and… well, maybe not Trevor, but the more unnecessary ‘stuff’ you can have in Grand Theft tự động hóa 5, the better. Sure, that luxury apartment of yours is nice, but what about a country safehouse, complete with oto 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.

17. Become SUPERHOT


Mod: SUPERHOT Mod (opens in new tab)

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

18. Whistle while you wreak havoc with the mobile radio


Mod: Mobile Radio (opens in new tab)

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