Peyote Plant glitches are getting ridiculous in GTA Online

Rockstar Games’ decision to bring back their famous Peyote Plants has been a game-changer for GTA Online players. Whether or not it’s been a good change, though, is very much up for discussion. 

These plants are located right the way across the Grand Theft Auto 5 map and eating them is supposed to allow characters to change how they look. Well, turn into animals, basically.

However, they aren’t always working as intended. Just days ago, it was revealed that the plants were doing weird things to players, like stealing their weapons, and the newest issue might just take the cake.

Peyote Plants can turn players into different animals – even Bigfoot.

In what’s quite a shocking clip, sped up to 2x so it cuts to the chase much quicker than normal gameplay, Reddit user magicdeanoboy discovered that it’s now possible to free fall from the sky and land safely on the ground.

The footage below shows the player is at the highest point they can go, thousands of feet in the air, which causes the engine of their Avenger to stall. In that moment, they decide to jump from the aircraft, but that didn’t really go to plan.

The blades from the chopper hacked at the player soon after, leaving them with very little HP remaining, but with a terrifyingly long wait until they reached the ground. After spinning around in circles, the body eventually thuds against a sidewalk and somehow the player survived.

Can anyone explain how I survived this????? from gtaonline

Posting in a Reddit thread, they said: “Can anyone explain how I survived this?”

Multiple members of the community have since reached out, claiming that eating a Peyote Plant will likely have been the cause – meaning that not only can they turn you into an animal, but also stop you from dying in the craziest of scenarios as well.

One said: “You ate a Peyote plant that’s why you survived, peyote plants will for some reason reduce self inflicted damage,” while another posted: “It’s a glitch that makes you god mode to your own damage. It happens accidentally.”

Rockstar Games
Some players have reported that weapons like the Navy Revolver have disappeared after eating Peyotes.

Clearly, this is something a lot of players are already aware of, yet there has been no indication that Rockstar is planning on rolling out a patch to solve these issues any time soon.

With characters being robbed of their weapons after eating Peyotes, and not dying from extreme drops like this, who knows what they could do next. It’s starting to get a bit too crazy for our liking.

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.
