Where to find GTA Online’s Golden Peyote plant to play as Bigfoot

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.


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.
