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.


GTA 6 teaser speculation grows after players uncover more strange files in RDR2

Fans have spotted more out-of-place files in Red Dead Redemption 2 that could point toward either GTA 6 or rumors that the re-release of Grand Theft Auto V on PS5 and Xbox Series is on a new engine.

Rockstar has been mum on any information regarding the long-awaited announcement of GTA 6, but fans can hardly contain their excitement, combing through files of other games to find some clue for what the company is working on.

Now, with GTA Online players spotting code potentially referencing the RAGE Engine used in Red Dead Redemption 2, fans think there could be some connection between RDR2 and the next Grand Theft Auto.

As such, players have peeked through RDR2’s files and discovered some things that seem wildly out of place, even for the wild west.

What are these weird GTA-like files doing in Red Dead Redemption 2?

GTA Forums member ‘rollschuh2282’ noted that they found parachute-related files hidden in Red Dead. The crazy part is that the file doesn’t exist in GTA V.

“Funnily that [[email protected]@pack] animation file does not exist in V,” they wrote and provided a photo of all the parachute animations in GTA 5.

Lo and behold, the file with “pack” in its name was not among them, meaning it was unique to Red Dead 2’s code. But what would parachute files be doing in a game about cowboys?

Modern gun files don’t make sense in RDR2. Unless…

Fans believe this is either a sign towards the next-gen port of GTA V being in Red Dead Redemption 2’s engine or GTA 6.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear if the files had existed since the game’s PC release or were only recently added in a newer update.

This isn’t the first time fans have discovered weird files in RDR2. As Dexerto previously reported, weapon code for two variants of the Browning pistol, an L1A1 rifle and AK-47 were found back in late December.

In any case, more and more evidence is mounting that something is brewing at Rockstar and it isn’t just hot coffee. Only time will tell what the future holds, especially as GTA V’s re-release draws nearer.
