Grand Theft Auto V is home to some of the biggest and most exciting mysteries in gaming, complete with its own group of highly motivated mystery solvers. The most notable of the bunch is probably the Mt. Chiliad Mystery – a conundrum involving cryptic drawings and aliens that still baffles players to this day.
That’s not to diminish, however, the excitement surrounding the Bigfoot Mystery. Recently, the latter of the two experienced a breakthrough, a resolution, even. Someone, somewhere, has (seemingly) solved the Bigfoot Mystery. Stick on your tinfoil hat, because we’re diving straight in.
Phase One – The Golden Peyote
The earlier stages of the Bigfoot Mystery involved a ton of skimming through code within the game, for hints and clues from the developer themselves. Players laboriously searched through thousands of lines of code, ultimately leading up the discovery of the “Golden Peyote plant.”
The plant was found by discovering the exact coordinates of every single peyote plant in the game. You see, not all coordinates were accurate, as in some didn’t lead to anything. Something was definitely up, especially considering that Rockstar themselves left the following within the code: “He was wrong to start his hunt on a Tuesday.”
By visiting one of the coordinate locations whilst on a snowy/misty Tuesday morning, you could find the first of the Golden Peyote plants. Upon eating it, you would essentially become Bigfoot. This was the first major breakthrough in the Bigfoot Mystery, as far as I know.
