For those ready to immerse themselves in the vibrant roleplaying scene of Los Santos, here are the best servers that provide the perfect platform to begin your GTA RP journey.

The introduction of NoPixel’s 3.0 update caused a significant spike in interest for Grand Theft Auto RP, attracting both streamers and viewers to Twitch‘s GTA category and maintaining its prominence as one of the top-viewed games of the last 2 years.

NoPixel, which is the standout server for GTA RP, has been around for a few years, and each time they drop a major update, players want to get in on the roleplaying action and have a go for themselves. Though, it’s incredibly tough to get a slot.

Things have only gotten more interesting now that Rockstar themselves have started ‘supporting’ the FiveM devs that are behind some of the biggest servers.

So, if you’re still interested, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best GTA RP servers where you can get in.

Eclipse RP

Other servers might not have some of NoPixel’s features, but the premise is the same. You drop into GTA V via the FiveM server menu, create a character, and roleplay to your heart’s content. All within the server’s rules, of course.

One server that does come close is Eclipse. Just like NoPixel, there are plenty of ways to make money, spend it, and have a fun RP experience. 

It’s got a massive server capacity, as well as a dedicated forum and Discord so that you can get involved. It’s a simple one to jump into as well, just join the site, Discord, and make yourself known. 

MafiaCity GTA RP

Aside from Eclipse, there is also MafiaCity. This server is, again, roleplay-heavy, but it has some differences from the others.

For one, it’s hosted on the Rage mode and not FiveM, so NPCs can be done away with. Plus, there are unlimited possibilities when it comes to roles. You can be a terrible criminal as easily as you can be a police officer or a firefighter.

Again, it’s simple to get involved. Just have the Rage mod downloaded, and you can join the server from their website. Though, introduce yourself on the Forum and Discord so you’re not a stranger. 

GTA World RP

Now, if you’re not too comfortable with switching your mic on and acting with others, then GTA World could be the best RP server for you. 

In terms of top-tier RP’ers, its a little more barebones than the other servers out there, but the roleplaying possibilities are pretty unique, given you have to type out your thoughts rather than chat,

The server does offer plenty of content though, as like with others, you can deal with businesses, factions, and customize things to your heart’s content. GTA World is available through Rage too, not FiveM, and like the others has a Forum and Discord to get involved with. 

New Day RP

New Day RP launched back in March of 2021, and has already undergone a 2.0 update as players have been flooding to take a look at the popular new server.

Despite being a relatively newer server than some of the others, New Day RP has plenty of the jobs and other features as its peers. It’s also launching into a new whitelisting period until January 8th, meaning that you do have the chance to get involved whereas some others are still closed to new players.

Just hop onto the New Day RP forum, sign up, and submit your application to see if you can make the grade to RP with them.


If you’re looking for something that is a little more open and wild, then LucidCity could be an option. Like others, it’s on the FiveM list, and is pretty open to join.

The server has a lot of the NoPixel features, plus a few of their own, and even incorporates Cayo Perico from the normal GTA Online mode. Just like the others, you’re best off joining their forum and Discord and introducing yourself before going on a crime spree. 


NoPixel has become the most well-known GTA RP server and has pretty much spearheaded the rise of GTA RP. However, getting accepted into this server is no easy feat.

To join this server, you must go through an application process as well as make a donation. With this kind of exclusivity, it’s no wonder why popular streamers like Buddha and xQc are server regulars.

Outside of the main server, NoPixel does have public servers, but you’ve got to pay for priority access and character slots. If you do find yourself on the public server, though, you can prove your skills on there to earn a spot on the main server.

That’s everything you need to know about the best GTA RP servers and how to join them! There are plenty of other smaller servers too, it’s just about finding the right one. You might run into a few where it’s pretty crazy and no one cares for the rules, so feel free to shop around.
