Many GTA 5 Easter eggs are hidden. However, the secret message is undoubtedly an interesting one that can be found by following a specific set of instructions.

What’s even more macabre is that if you use the camera on your phone to zoom in on these clown faces, they’ll briefly come to life and smile at you menacingly. While it’s not clear what this Easter egg is supposed to mean, it’s certainly one of the most unsettling things you’ll find in GTA V.

8. Frozen Alien

In the prologue mission, in Ludendorff, there’s a very strange Easter egg involving an alien frozen in a block of ice. This is a reference to the popular X-Files TV show, which featured aliens that were often found in similar situations.

To find the frozen alien, you need to make your way under the bridge while moving toward the helicopter. Once there, you’ll see the alien encased in the frozen lake. It’s a very eerie sight, but by doing this you’ll fail the mission of course.

7. Haunted House

One of the coolest Easter eggs in GTA 5 is the Haunted House. To find it, go to Franklin’s house and walk around to the back. There’s a broken-down wooden fence that you can climb over, and then you’ll be in a small graveyard. The Haunted House is at the end of the graveyard on the left-hand side.

6. Bigfoot

The Bigfoot is one of the most popular Easter eggs in GTA V. To find it; you need to head to the northeastern part of the map, into the forest area. Once you’re there, keep your eyes peeled for a dark figure running through the trees. If you manage to get a glimpse of it, you’ll see that it’s a large, hairy creature that looks a lot like Bigfoot.

Interestingly, there’s also a mission in GTA V that involves tracking down and killing Bigfoot. Whether or not this is connected to the Easter egg is up for debate, but it’s definitely an interesting coincidence.

5. Loch Ness Monster

The Loch Ness Monster Easter egg in GTA 5 is a fun little addition that many gamers enjoy finding. If you’re not familiar with it, the Easter egg can be found in the northeast part of the map, just north of the Sandy Shores area. To find it, you’ll need to head to the water and look for a giant lake. Once you’re there, start searching along the right-hand side until you find an area that’s blocked off by rocks.

4. The UFO

Here’s what you need to do: go to Sandy Shores UFO Crash Site during the night. You’ll find a broken-down bus near some rocks. Destroy the bus and then look for a glowing briefcase. Opening the briefcase will give you an alien gun that does extra damage to vehicles. Be sure to stay away from the light beam emitted by the craft, as it will damage your health.
