Preliminary information

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to become animals on GTA 5 , I think it may interest you to know more about this possibility (available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of the game).

Well, Rockstar Games has decided to implement multiple “surprises” within GTA 5. Among these, there are peyote plants scattered around the map. By interacting with the latter, it is possible to transform the character into an animal and play in his shoes. Obviously, this is the hallucinogenic effect of the plant and not a “physical” transformation of the character.

The playable animals are several: from the wild boar to the hen , passing through the seagull and the pig . In short, it is a particularly hilarious “gimmick”, which can keep you entertained for several hours. Either way, there are dozens of peyote plants to find and animals to discover, but I don’t want to spoil you too much.

All you need to know is that you can go wherever you want with the animal : you will become “human” again , for example, after getting hit by some car or by pressing the button you used to eat the plant.

After the animal has died, you will no longer be able to collect the associated peyote plant , as it will be saved in your progress. Therefore, I advise you to be careful and have as much fun as possible if you like to control that animal.

How to become an animal in GTA 5

After explaining in detail what this feature allows you to do, I would say that it’s time to take action and find out how to become animals in GTA 5 for PS4 and for all other platforms: the steps to take are always the same.

Well, all you have to do is find a peyote plant (it stands out due to the presence of a pink “flower” and the fact that it emits an “animal sound”), place your character next to it and press the ‘special button that appears on the screen (eg right arrow on PS4 ).

In this way, a cutscene will start in which the character you are controlling will eat the peyote plant and transform into the associated animal . Once the “transformation” has been performed, usually the keys to move , run and attack are the usual ones (eg analog to move, X to run and R2 to attack on PS4 ).

This clearly varies from animal to animal, but I will not give you other indications so as not to get too many anticipations. In any case, the keys to use will be indicated on the screen and therefore you should not have any kind of problem.

How to find all peyote plants

As mentioned above, there are several peyote plants in the GTA 5 map, for a total of 27 . How do you say? Don’t know where to find them? Don’t worry, I can assure you that, by following the list below, you will not have any problems.

  • In the middle of the ocean, in the seabed east of the Humane laboratories, there is a peyote plant, a bit “hidden” by some wreck;
  • In the depths of the canal between the airport and the port of Los Santos. You shouldn’t struggle to find it among the algae;
  • Vase at Mirror Park. The peyote plant can be found at the back of a house to the south in this neighborhood;
  • Hillside north of Fort Zancudo. You will certainly struggle a little to find the peyote plant, but in reality I assure you it will be fun;
  • High up in Raton Canyon, there is a sort of area from which to admire the landscape. Not far from the only wooden platform, there is also the peyote plant;
  • Seabed near Paleto Bay. It is difficult to give you precise directions, but you will have to search carefully among the rocks;
  • Hillside, not far from the Redwood Lights Track construction site. It may take you a while to find the plant, but it’s worth it;
  • One of the most difficult plants to find is in the depths of the Alamo Sea, in an inlet to the north-west;
  • Terrace of the Gentry Manor Hotel in Vinewood. The roof of the building can only be reached by aircraft;

  • Mount Chiliad, near two posts with red ribbonson a rocky ledge;
  • Vinewood Hill, in the middle of the bushes near the road leading to the Galileo observatory. With a little care, you shouldn’t struggle to find the peyote plant;
  • On the border of La Puerta and Chamberlain Hillsis a baseball field. There, behind the “net”, you find the peyote plant;
  • Tree on the edge of a lake on Monte Gordo. You shouldn’t have any particular difficulty finding the surprise that awaits you;

  • Island south-east of NOOSEIn the middle of the bushes there is a nice surprise;
  • Next to a caravan in the field of the Ron Alternates wind farm. Once you reach the place, it is not very difficult to find the peyote plant;
  • West of the Sandy Shores airstrip, near some cacti. Perhaps it may take some time to find the surprise that awaits you;
  • Vinewood Hills, hillside. Here it is a bit difficult to give a precise indication, but it is enough to know that it is not very far from one of the houses in the area;
  • Drain pipe in the north of Vinewood Hills. Difficult to give precise indications, you will have to search a bit;
  • Ocean floor, west of the Great Ocean Highway bridge. You will have to search through the rocks to find the peyote plant;
  • Paleto Bay Park, next to one of the benches with trash can. Taking a good look at the park, you shouldn’t have too many problems;
  • In the backdrops under a wooden pylon of the Del Perro pier;
  • In the Tongva Valley, more precisely in Two Hoots, there is a waterfall. In the rocks that surround it there is a nice surprise;

In short, Rockstar Games has hidden peyote plants a bit ‘everywhere, including seabed, hills and so on and so forth. Some may not be very easy to find: on the other hand, it is a challenge and for this reason it must test you. Sure, it’s an interesting lens that can guarantee you several hours of fun.
