Grand Theft Auto 5 has many hidden landmarks scattered around Los Santos and players have put together a map highlighting a number that you might have missed in-game.

It is clear that Rockstar developers paid attention to every little detail before the launch of GTA 5 as it has resulted in endless possibilities for GTA Online players.

Along with creating an impressive open-world map, the game developers also scattered different landmarks around GTA Online for fans to uncover.

GTA’s Los Santos map has a lot of hidden landmarks.

Although the popular title has been out since 2014, GTA Reddit user u/CorbinPidX99 put together a map of every hidden landmark in Los Santos for those who have yet to find them all.

The map included a wide range of different landmarks including Government Facilities to some of the concealed caves deep in the mountains bordering Blaine County.

However, many of the most impressive landmarks featured could be found in the waters surrounding the iconic map.

Deep beneath the sea, players could uncover many of the sunken treasures that lay on the ocean floor such as wrecked vehicles, toxic waste barrels, and even a mysterious underwater hatch.

Despite the fact that many of these landmarks have been found before, players can now easily travel to each of the locations when they want to experience the points of interest for themselves.

Although there has been a lot of DLC content added by Rockstar over the years, one thing that has remained relatively untouched is the Los Santos map itself, so it is unknown if they have any further changes planned.

However, as the hype is beginning to ramp up for the potential Grand Theft Auto 6 release, following recent leaks around an announcement, it would seem unlikely that any new landmarks would find their way into the game.


GTA Online player discovers Up-n-Atomizer trick you would never think of

The Up-n-Atomizer might not look like its from the same planet as other Grand Theft Auto weapons, but one GTA Online player has discovered a handy trick with it that the everyday person would find helpful. 

The world of GTA 5 is full with violence, fast cars and loud sounds. Even if you get a few members of the community who stick to the roads and stop at traffic lights for a laugh, generally they are in the minority and the rest is utter chaos.

A gun like the Up-n-Atomizer is capable of great things, terrible, but great. Its powerful blast can send cars, buses, tanks, and even planes flying in the opposite direction.

However, one player has shown a more delicate side to the gun. Apparently, this is actually the perfect tool to move cars between parking spaces.

Moving cars isn’t difficult in GTA, but the Up-n-Atomizer definitely makes it more graceful. Well, if you use it right.

GTA Online trick for the Up-n-Atomizer

As seen in a clip posted to the GTA Online subreddit, user skelatorx7 proved that it’s not all about destruction with the weapon.

In fact, with just one small push, they were able to move their car perfectly from one place to another without doing a single scratch to it. Now, here it’s just one off the street and not many will care about that, but it would definitely be handy if it were your own insured vehicle.

As seen in the video, the player simply aimed in and fired low into the side of the car. Soon after, it flips perfectly into the next parking spot as if it was a natural way for it to happen.

Not everybody in the comments quite understood how it worked, though. One said: “How did the shot go through the car?” while another posted: “Car flip? How?”

Other users have found more crazy ways of using the Atomizer, of course, including the use of it to shift buses in the middle of the road. After all, they can be annoying, cruising around slowly in front of your speedy vehicles.

You never know, maybe in the future your mechanic will be blasting your cars over to you like this, rather than riding them to your path. Never going to happen, but definitely a funny picture to paint.
