The gist:

  • Various NPCs in a GTA: San Andreas mod have coded pathways that will take them to specific locations, where you can either trigger a cutscene or learn more about them.
  • For the most part, the mod emphasizes rounding out the world Rockstar Games developed years ago by inserting more liveliness into its NPCs.

Video game modders are truly the gift that keeps on giving. Without them, we wouldn’t have mods that could style up characters to our liking in Baldur’s Gate 3 or improve The Sims 4 with new quality-of-life mechanics. Many PC gamers owe the modding community for keeping new titles customizable and older franchises alive and kicking.

This is true for GTA: San Andreas, one of the more beloved Rockstar Games launched in 2004.

At the time, it was revolutionary, but by today’s standards, there’s a lot of jank to it. Mods have cleaned up much of its rougher edges, but some modders have gone further.

In one clip, the TikTok user followed a shirtless NPC holding a pipe on a sidewalk. The video has a scary soundtrack looping in the background as the player follows. The NPC eventually peeled off the street to an unbeaten path and creepily entered a shabby house of wood by a lake.

Another TikTok clip followed the player stalking a police officer NPC across the city to a car garage. Once inside, a cutscene will trigger to show a group of officers beating on someone. As a result of the player seeing the incident, the cops will start shooting at them.
