Rockstar Games have brought back the Peyote plants in GTA Online so that players can play as a random animal, but eating the special Golden Peyote plant will give you the ability to turn into Bigfoot. Here’s where you can find it.
While many players use the virtual streets of Los Santos to race, steal, or just socialize with friends and random players, Rockstar Games sometimes throw things into the mix that sends everyone for a loop with the pure insanity of the situation.
This usually comes in the form of Alien Survival or an all-new flying car, but perhaps the most entertaining method comes via the Peyote plants. Eating one of the plants allows you to play as a random animal and while they’re back for a limited time, so is the ability to play as Bigfoot.
How to play as Bigfoot in GTA Online
Though, the ability to play as Bigfoot isn’t just a case of eating one Peyote plant and hoping that the luck is on your side. Instead, you’ve got to seek out the location of the Golden Peyote plant – of which there is only one on the map that respawns every 24 hours.
It’s located near Grapeseed – in the northern part of the map, behind Trevor’s airstrip. However, to spawn as Bigfoot and not any other random animal, the in-game time must be between 3-8 am – and the weather has to be foggy.
If these conditions are met, and nobody else has stolen the Golden Peyote plant from your session, you’ll be able to turn into one of GTA’s most iconic mystery characters.
Now, just like the other animals, you’ll be able to cause havoc with a set of special abilities – playing as Bigfoot won’t let you drive a car, fly a plane, or walk into a house. The good news is that you won’t attract police attention though, so you can go on a spree of destruction with no consequences from law enforcement.
Bigfoot also comes with additional health and strength meaning that you’ll be harder to take down should the NPC citizens of Los Santos aim their fury at you.
The Peyote plants are available in GTA Online right now, but the current run is set to conclude on Monday, April 13 so you’ll have to act fast if you want to wreak havoc around San Andreas county as the mythical beast.
