A Redditor has spotted the granddaddy of easter eggs in the “Predator” mission of Grand Theft Auto V. Don’t look at anything below the cut if you don’t want it spoiled for you.
Still there? Cool. Let’s start messin’ with Sasquatch.
For the longest time, Grand Theft Auto players have searched for Bigfoot. Just like real life, there are a lot of stories, lots of myths, and even blurry, likely fake pictures. But now? Now there’s footage that Bigfoot exists… on GTA V, at least. [Kotaku]
Oh man, I spent so much time in the woods while playing San Andreas looking for that furry bastard. One of the videos is below (another is here) along with a picture. As with all Bigfoot footage, it’s blurry.
To quote Mitch Hedberg, “I think Bigfoot is blurry. That’s the problem. It’s not the photographer’s fault, and that’s extra scary to me, because there’s a large out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside.”
Don’t just take Mitch Hedberg’s word for it. Just look at this autofocus photography demonstration photoshopped by our own Chodin.
Check out the in-game video and picture below, and here’s the description of the mission courtesy of Reddit’s OscarTheSwede.
So in the mission where Franklin are chasing after three guys that Trevor wants dead, they crash in a forest. Michael and Trevor arrives at the forest with a helicopter so Micheal can shoot them from the air with a sniper rifle. [...] If you aim almost as far as possible to the right bottom corner you will see Bigfoot. Use the thermal to spot him and make sure that you don’t put your sights on him, because he will disappear then. If you want to get a good look at him, zoom in as far as possible and keep him in the corners of your sights. He won’t disappear then. [emphasis ours]
You can’t shoot Bigfoot.
