UFO #1: Paleto Bay Crash

  • In the waters north of Paleto Bay, there’s a crashed UFO deep underwater. Sadly, there’s no way to get inside.

UFO #2: Fort Zancudo AFB

  • This strange UFO appears high the skies above Fort Zancudo AFB. Players can attemp to land on the UFO but they’ll be thrown off by the force of the spinning engine in the center.
  • It happens to be one of the more alien-looking vessels, unlike the next two oddly-marked UFOs.

UFO #3: Mount Chiliad Hologram

  • Go to the peak of Mt. Chiliad where you’ll find a viewing platform. At 3 AM (In-Game) a UFO will appear while standing on the wooden platform, but only while it is raining.
  • You can use the weather cheat to make it rain. Use the code 7 times to get rainy weather. (Input: RT A LB LB LT LT LT X / R2 X L1 L1 L2 L2 L2 Square)
  • The hologram will appear in the distance, but stepping closer to investigate will cause the UFO to disappear. Mysterious! If you look very closely, this UFO has the same FIB markings as another later in the list.

UFO #4: Sandy Shores FIB

  • Even more mysterious is another alien ship that appears directly above the hippy camp in Sandy Shores. This is one is similar to the previous UFO, and is marked with the “FIB” logo.
  • Like the military base UFO, getting too close will push you (or your helicopter) away.

After I picked up the alien piece in Tongva Hills (between 1:00 am-2:00 am) an invisible outline of a spacecraft descends for about 10 seconds before it disappears again.

Ive been reading alot about this and i dont want to bother registering with a website but still wanted to help out so ill write it here. Once i was driving over the railway track near trevors main airfield and i was beamed up into a ufo and left up the road in my jocks. No-where on any forum have i seen this anywhere???

That’s just a random event mission where someone pulls out a stun in in you and you wake up on the tracks.

I gotta say its hard for me to get the altitude right when looking for the zancudo/hippy camp ufos.
