Gamers Can Now Play As Bigfoot On GTA V

Don’t listen to the non-believers, Bigfoot *does* exist.

Well on GTA V he does anyway, as the game’s latest update allows you to unlock this hairy mythical beast via a cryptic new achievement.

That achievement is called Cryptzoologist, teasing gamers by asking if they’ve sure they’ve found every animal in the game’s universe. Which is of course code for: ‘there’s still something out there you Red Bull-swigging amateur'.

Well the bods at Kotaku have listed exactly what must be done to find the game’s newest creature – and it involves finding a Peyote plant and a trippy adventure:

r/Chiliadmystery member rkRusty made a breakthrough related to the mystery: they found a new Peyote plant that, once digested, could transform the player into Sasquatch—thus allowing the player to have a drug-addled adventure as Big Foot.

It was not happenstance. The player had dug into the GTA files and found the coordinates for every existing Peyote plant, and in doing so, discovered that there were actually a few unknown and unaccounted Peyote plants listed in said files. They also noted that there was a segment in the code that would only trigger if the weather type was set to foggy.

So rkRusty put two and two together, forced the game to become foggy, and then proceeded to these exact coordinates: -1472.531, 4439.456, 18.862.

That’s right – you are Bigfoot. Able to run around terrifying ramblers in the countryside and also cruise down the highway in a Mustang, this reward is worth the faff.

Sasquatch. Bigfoot. Harry from Harry and The Hendersons. Whatever you call him he’s yours.
