How to Find Bigfoot

  • During the mission “Predator” you’ll chase two opponents through the forest. Eventually, you’ll switch to Michael on a helicopter.
  • Using the rifle’s thermal scope, aim down and right to spot the slightly fatter thermal signature in the forest.
  • Switch off the scope to get a good look at this ancient creature. Once believed to be a GTA myth, it has finally returned to San Andreas.

Unfortunately, we only know about this glimpse. But, it wouldn’t surprise me if Bigfoot appeared somewhere else. I’m crossing my fingers for an RDR: Undead Nightmare situation.
