It’s time to return to Los Santos and make GTA 5 feel fresh again, thanks to the best mods available to install right now.
Rockstar Games blew us all away with GTA 5 back in 2013. If you’re struggling to find excitement in Rockstar’s open-world opus, then worry no more. Here are the 10 best GTA 5 mods to try right now.
10. 100% complete save
With so many versions of GTA 5 over the years, completing the game multiple times can be a chore. If you’d prefer to reap the benefits of 100% completion then modder Dire Zephyr has got your back. Installing this fully complete save will spawn you in as Franklin, with all of the spoils to enjoy on your next trip across Los Santos.
9. photorealistic san Andreas mod
GTA 5 has always been a gorgeous game to look at. Even back on the PlayStation 3, those sun-soaked vistas took our breath away. Now, you can take the game’s visuals to another level with this reshading mod. Installing this pack will give Los Santos a complete visual overhaul, adding a new sheen of realism to your gameplay.
8. GTA online vehicles in single-player mode
GTA Online has introduced a legion of incredible vehicles to speed around in. Unfortunately, nearly all of them are locked within GTA 5’s multiplayer component. Thankfully, this mod by PikPikker enables players to use any of GTA Online’s vehicles in the single-player portion of the game. A lot of fun can be had with this!
7. Parkour mod
You’ll often find yourself running across the alleys and rooftops of Los Santos, probably escaping the police. What if you could escape on foot with some style? Players can use Parkour to leap and bound across GTA 5, allowing them to reach places with far more ease.
6. field of view changer
GTA 5 added the option to play in first-person when the game leapt over to eight-generation consoles. While playing the game this way is fun, the standard field-of-view options were limited. Modder DrDaxxy has solved this problem by unlocking this feature to its maximum potential.
5. realistic driving overhaul
Rockstar Games have always prided themselves on their incredible levels of detail. The driving in GTA 5 is satisfying but this realism mod by Renegade Doggie deserves your attention. This mod gives GTA 5’s driving a makeover with better suspension and traction, realistic damage and precise acceleration.
4. use the force
Star Wars might take place in a galaxy far, far away but this mod brings GTA 5 one step closer. Channel your inner Jedi Knight or Sith Lord with this Telekinesis mod by DaveA93. Players can pick up pedestrians and objects at will to wreak havoc to their heart’s content. Eat your heart out Saints Row.
3. play as superman
Every city needs a hero to save them and who is better than the Man of Steel himself. This excellent player model mod will turn players into Superman, based on Henry Cavill’s version from the DC Extended Universe. Complete with accurate cape physics and high-quality textures, you’ll be the beacon of hope Los Santos needs in no time.
2. enhanced weapon sounds
Whether it’s GTA 5 or the Max Payne franchise, Rockstar Games have delivered excellent gunplay over the years. To add even more impact to your gunfights, GTA modder MvcGyver had given each and every gun a new lease of life with this sound pack. Weapons sound punchy and devastating as you battle the gangs of Los Santos.
1. California remaster
It is well known that Los Santos is based on the real-life counterpart Los Angeles. Well, now you don’t have to pretend any longer as this massive mod replicates California. Players can expect to see accurate buildings, signage, stores and more as they travel around the map. We’re seriously impressed with this one.
