The world must be ending soon (or similar) because a rumor sprung from leaks made by so-called data miners are turning out to be actually true. I know right? Insanity!
Recently we reported on rumors there is a secret peyote plant hidden somewhere in GTA V, and that this particular peyote would turn the user into a sasquatch, or as it is more commonly known, a Bigfoot. Sasquatch-related rumors have been circling since GTA: San Andreas, and even the official in-mission inclusion of the furry beast in GTA V hasn’t made the community any less interested in the mystery.
Some time ago, references to three missing peyote plants were found in the code of GTA V. Then following the Freemode Events update, several new peyotes were indeed added to GTA V, however according to an Achievement/Trophy, one was still missing and had not been found by gamers. Following this discovery, data miners took to the code of GTA V to uncover the mystery, and happened upon a rather telling file:
Well, those words solve it, don’t they? Actually, the fact that no one found the actual Bigfoot plant itself caused the raising of numerous skeptical voices (in addition to that usually found when the data miners “find something”). Cause let’s be honest, the track record of data miners isn’t exactly great and a new GTA V rumor seems to arrive every other week…. Anyway, we digress…
It is now officially confirmed, at long last, that the mystery has been solved and the Sasquatch Peyote found! Now quickly before we proceed: yes, the screenshots are from the PC version of the game, and no, they aren’t from a mod. In fact, the plant’s existence has been confirmed and replicated by numerous players since (big shout out to rkRusty for finding this thing too!).
How to get the Sasquatch/Bigfoot Peyote Plant
In order to find the peyote at the coordinates (-1472.531, 4439.456, 18.862):
- you have to have unlocked all other peyote plants;
- it has to be Tuesday;
- the weather has to be foggy on PC or snowy on consoles (we have a cheat code for that!);
- it must be between 5:30 and 8:00 AM;
- you need to have finished the Strangers and Freaks mission “The Last One” without killing a certain something. If you’ve done it, you know what we’re talking about, and if you haven’t we won’t spoil it;
- you must have completed the game (not 100%, just completed it); and
- you must be playing on Xbox One, PS4 or PC.
You can also find and consume the peyote with any character, and getting this special peyote will earn the ‘Wild Animal’ actor for you to use in Director mode – bonus!
