Grand Theft Auto V roleplay servers have returned to popularity on Twitch thanks to a number of top streamers returning to the game. But what actually is it? We’ve got the lowdown for you.

The multiplayer mod, which is different from the normal GTA Online mode, allows players to act out their own story in whatever fashion they want, affecting how the fictional city of Los Santos and its inhabitants, both actual players and NPCs, operate. 

However, it can still be a confusing world to outsiders. So, here’s everything you need to know about GTA V RP.

Rockstar GamesPlayers can create whatever story they want in GTA V RP.

What is GTA V RP?

GTA V roleplay is a multiplayer mod for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. Players who jump into one of the user-created RP servers becomes even more immersed in the game – as they take on the form of a normal NPC, which can be customized in a number of different ways.

The level of roleplay depends on the server. Some servers are completely hardcore roleplaying – which means players are skirting the rules if they ask for tips on how to access the game’s menus or even the button that corresponds to an action.

Twitch: LirikLirik was one of the key players in helping the mod grow.

Can it be played by anyone?

Anyone with a copy of the game on PC can play, but it is significantly different from the normal multiplayer mode that is built into Rockstar’s hugely popular title.

As we say, GTA RP is a multiplayer mod and can only be accessed via modified games clients like FiveM and Grand Theft Multiplayer. Once there, you can join an RP server some communities require an invite – which players gain by proving themselves as a talented role-player.

How to join a GTA V RP server?

One of the most popular GTA V role play servers, run by NoPixel, is currently closed to applications because of the overwhelming number of new applicants. 

Since GTA V RP suddenly started getting popular again on Twitch, players have been eager to get in on the action, but with over 4,000 applications now backed up, NoPixel has had to close it for the time being.

Even once you are accepted to a server, you will likely be placed on the very end of the queue, and can only move up it by proving yourself as a ‘good’ RP player (i.e. staying in character and not ruining it for others).

It’s not always a simple process to get in to a GTA V RP server.

Who plays GTA RP?

A number of big streamers have recently jumped back into the mod but a dedicated community has remained since the popularity of the game spiked in 2017.

On March 10, Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar had a hilarious broadcast that saw him cover almost everything in the game – including a NSFW interaction with a police officer after he had been locked up in jail.

Fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid has also been known to dabble in the mod with his Avon Barksdale character – taking inspiration from the critically acclaimed TV series, The Wire.

Whether the mod stays trendy with big Twitch streamers remains to be seen – but a dedicated community, spread over a number of servers, maintains a healthy player base.

Before jumping into the action yourself, if you’re tempted, it’s advisable to spend some time watching others play, so you can become accustomed to the norms and expectations of the roleplaying mod.

How to get your loadout

These contain access to your loadout and other items.

For newcomers, you may be wondering how it is you can even equip your specialist loadout. After all, starting with a pistol doesn’t scream loadout freedom.

All you need to do to be able to use your loadout in-game is scavenge $10,000 and get yourself a loadout drop from the Buy Station.

Best loadouts

Some of these weapons have stood the test of time in Warzone and continue to be the go-to guns for guaranteed success. You may be using some of these already, but have you necessarily got the right attachments for them as well?

These are some of the most popular guns and attachments in Warzone.

Kilo 141

The Kilo 141.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Suppressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Arms 19.8″ Prowler
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

This ultra-reliable assault rifle is a god-tier weapon that has won many a player many a game.

These attachments make it quite a good utility gun and extremely powerful. Favoring power and precision, this setup makes the Kilo 141 effective at range and is basically an all-purpose killer across a sprawling Battle Royale map.

MP5

The MP5.
  • Barrel: Monolithic Integral Suppressor
  • Stock: FTAC Collapsible
  • Underbarrel: Merc Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 45 Round Mags
  • Rear Grip: Stippled Grip Tape

A classic weapon in the lineage of Call of Duty.

The MP5 is a quick, accurate, powerful killer. Its great iron sight allows for an extra attachment where it really counts, meaning you can snap to a target quicker. These lightweight settings allow you to sprint around the map and provide a quicker gathering of tools and faster looting.

Grau 5.56

The Grau 5.56.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: Tempus 26.4″ Archangel
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

The Grau’s lesser recoil and damage over long-distances make it a killer companion to have.

With these attachments on the gun too, you really have yourself a versatile weapon that is effective at all ranges. Not only that, but a higher magazine and walking stability make the Grau 5.56 an extremely viable option in Warzone.

Bruen Mk9

The Bruen MK9.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: XRK Summit 26.8″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: VLK 3.0x Optic
  • Ammunition: 60 Round Mags

An LMG in the best loadout guide? Surely not?

Surely yes. By reducing its magazine size and stabilizing its accuracy, it becomes a potent killer with high damage. Then you add an optic onto the top of it, and the Bruen suddenly becomes a weapon of mass destruction on the battlefield.

Kar98K

The Kar98k.
  • Muzzle: Monolithic Supressor
  • Barrel: Singuard Custom 27.6″
  • Laser: Tac Laser
  • Optic: Sniper Scope
  • Stock: FTAC Sport Comb

One shot, one kill.

The effectiveness of the Kar98K naturally hinges on the user’s ability to wield it accurately. But if so, then it’s an unstoppable one-hit machine. As a rifle, it naturally has a slower rate of fire, but its stopping power makes up for this tenfold. Attach a long scope and decrease the ADS time, and you can spot and snap an enemy in a split-second.

Five deadly, dynamic combinations that are winning formulas in the Warzone. You shouldn’t even need to test your skills in the Gulag with one of these loadouts in your arsenal.

Hopefully you enjoyed our 5 best loadouts in Call of Duty: Warzone and may it bring you more wins.
