Grand Theft Auto 5 Glitches

Free Fall Glitch

When playing the single-player story campaign, pay a visit to the Paleto Bay Sheriff Office. Jump into or ride a bike into the small window directly right of the office’s front door. That way you’ll pass right through it and instantly go under it in a free fall that goes out of bounds!

This video guide shows the exact free fall location on the map:

Cops Crash Into Cutscenes Glitch

Location: During the cutscene that starts when you enter the bar in the “Trevor Phillips industries” Mission.

Before you start the Mission, start killing people in front of the bar. Once the cops show up, run into the bar and it will start the Mission cutscene. The hilarious part about this is that the cops do not disappear, instead they actually run into the bar and start attacking you while the cutscene is going on!

This glitch also works if you attack people in front of the strip club until the cops arrive, then walk inside to get a private dance from a stripper, and the cops will be staring at you as she dances haha.

Xbox 360 Install Glitches

Developer Rockstar North has given an official warning regarding the Grand Theft Auto 5 installation, which on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles requires a mandatory install that is roughly 8GB and starts when you insert the game disc for the first time, after which you can immediately play the game on PS3. But because the Xbox 360 version comes with 2 discs, some people have encountered some issues that are easy to prevent.

For the Xbox 360, Grand Theft Auto 5 will ship on two discs; Disc 1 / Install Disc will be used for the one-time mandatory install, and the Disc 2 / Play Disc will be used to play the game. Rockstar support states that “for optimal performance, we recommend not installing that disc”.

So do NOT install this 2nd Play Disc because that will slow the game down, because it causes pop-up, texture, and frame-rate issues. As shown in this video:

Money Exploits

There are also 2 money exploits, which aren’t necessarily glitches, since they don’t mess with what you’re doing. If you wanna check ’em out, they are listed on our Grand Theft Auto 5 Money Cheats page.

Glitches discovered by: Rockstar, Escapist & Deathmule.
