Rockstar Games have, once again, given GTA Online players the chance to turn into animals by finding the Peyote plants that are scattered around the map. So, here’s where you can find them. 

Even though it is now seven years old, GTA Online is still a vast world where players can do pretty much anything they want to – provided it falls within the limitations of the game, that is. 


While things like heisting the casino, racing, and transporting business goods, are pretty realistic, sometimes Rockstar Games dives into their bag filled with weird and wonderful tricks that will have players laughing for hours on end.

There are a tonne of things to do in GTA Online.

With their April 6 update to GTA Online, the developers have done that once again, giving players the chance to turn into animals. Yes, that’s right, swapping a human’s body for an animal’s one on the virtual streets of Los Santos.


Though, there’s nothing too complicated about the process – you don’t have to do some special job for Lester or have a certain set rank on your Rockstar account. Instead, all you have to do is find a Peyote plant and you will be transformed into a random animal that you’d find in GTA V.

Peyote plants are the key to becoming an animal in GTA Online.

These Peyote plants, however, aren’t stuck in one area of the map – they are spread out all over the place and you can find them while just out for a drive. 

Thanks to gosunoob, you can use the below map to find every single Peyote plant location in GTA Online. All you have to do is go towards one of the markers and your controller will start vibrating the closer you get to a plant. 


You will know when you’ve found one because the vibrations will be pretty strong and you will see a small green circle with some white and yellow flowers on top on the floor.

There are nearly 80 Peyote Plants on the GTA Online map.

Once you devour one of the plants, you will become an animal until said animal is killed. Then, you will return to your normal form. 

How long the Peyote plants will remain in GTA Online, however, remains to be seen as Rockstar only adds them for a limited amount of time.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
