Bigfoot is famously elusive in real life, an in the world of Grand Theft Auto, he's similarly hard to find. But, thanks to one kind-hearted Redditer, finding Bigfoot – or rather, transforming into him – just became a little easier.
The breadcrumbs for this mythical bear hunt were laid last week, when Rockstar Games added Cryptozoologist, a new achievement that is awarded to players once they have unlocked all the animals in GTA V movie editor.
But something was amiss: when you get the animal actors menu, the player is shown as only having 21 out of a possible 22. This is because there is another creature to unlock, and that creature is Bigfoot.
Aside from being able to drive cars, fire guns and be generally more entertaining, Bigfoot is similar to other animals in that the player has to eat hidden peyote plants. To become Bigfoot, the peyote plant is gold, and particularly difficult to find.
Redditer rkRusty delved into the code for the PC version of GTA V to find the exact locations of the plants and what makes them appear.
From this, they established that the golden (Bigfoot) peyote plant appears if you play the game at dawn on a Tuesday while the weather is foggy on a PC, or snowing if you're playing on XBox One and Playstation 4, at the following coordinates: 1472.531, 4439.456, 18.862
From then, you see the character pass out, hallucinate and transform into Bigfoot.
Unfortunately, you also have to have eaten all the other 27 peyote plants and complete "The Last One" mission without killing the Sasquatch. After that, feel free to terrorise away - and make the most of it, you only get one go as Bigfoot before vomiting it all up like a bad dream.
