It’s no secret that grand theft auto online, like other Rockstar games, is full of secrets and curiosities for players to discover. From Bigfoot to UFOs, mythological creatures, alien beings, and strange objects have appeared in the game.
A gambler was recently confused when he pulled into the Diamond Casino and Resort car park to discover the Loch Ness Monster “parked” there. It looks like the Casino even drew one of the world’s most legendary mythological creatures to check it out.
Redditor Herbzi_Leaf shared an image of the encounter, with the plesiosaur-like creature rising in the Diamond Casino parking lot. Standing almost as tall as one of the lampposts, the Loch Ness Monster is motionless in its place. The monster’s appearance confused Herbzi_Leaf, but its appearance is likely due to a modder messing around with one of the game’s assets.
For those unaware, the Loch Ness Monster makes an official appearance in GTA online, but like a very small Easter egg. When players attempt to flee from the Cayo Perico Heist, there is a chance that this creature will appear in the water in the distance. Trying to approach it will cause it to dive underwater and disappear. The helmsman of the submarine Pavel will actually comment on the creature under certain circumstances, acknowledging its presence on radar and calling it a “friend”, indicating that he has seen it before.
Of course, this creature was never meant to appear in a place like the Diamond Casino and Resort parking lot. A mischievous player probably spawned it there as a joke, intending to confuse or surprise other players. Since the model is a static prop, it is impossible to interact with it or kill it. Even so, spotting what amounts to a dinosaur in the middle of GTA onlineLos Santos is definitely weird, even for players who survived GTA onlineThe Halloween UFO event.
Big fans of other Rockstar Games titles might already know that this particular creature isn’t actually from Grand Theft Auto. Sounds and code have been discovered in Red Dead Redemption 2 alluding to a river monster. The textures for GTA onlinethe monster matches part of the code in RDR2, leading to the belief that they are one. It is unknown why it was never used in Red Dead Redemption 2, but Rockstar Games has shared assets between its games in the past, so that’s not too much of a surprise.
While hackers and cheaters in GTA online can make the game miserable for other players, sometimes they have a little harmless fun, like in this case. Players would probably prefer to see more river monsters and less grief in GTA online.
grand theft auto online is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions in development.
