GAT: San Andreas – Best Easter Eggs

Rockstar never fails to load up its games with tons of fun Easter eggs and references. Due to their attention to detail, people are still discovering new references in older games. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is no exception. However, there will be no Bigfoot Easter Eggs as they were unfortunately just rumors and mods.

San Andreas was released during a golden period of Internet rumors and myths. Lots of rumors our friends told us and sketchy internet guides that claimed you could fight Bigfoot were part of the fun. It may be disappointing to find out that the real Easter eggs were much less exciting.


seven The Gant bridge has no Easter eggs

In true Rockstar fashion, a sarcastic surprise awaits players who manage to climb to the top of the Gant deck. The only way to practically reach the top is to carefully jump on it or use a jetpack. Your reward for succeeding is a sign saying, “There are no Easter eggs here. Leave.”

Not all Easter Eggs have a new referral or original reward. Sometimes it’s just the developers making cheeky remarks to overly ambitious players. You don’t always need to complete a game 100% and explore every nook and cranny of the map.

6 Bone County Body Bags

If you travel north near Area 69, there is a small enclave where you can find a pickup truck and a shovel. Inside the hole is a pit with six body bags. Given its proximity to Las Venturas, you could easily assume it’s a dumping ground for the mob. Rumors surrounding Vegas in the 80s and 90s would fuel this belief.

However, K-Rose host Mary-Beth Maybell is the most likely suspect behind the site. Maybell resides in Bone County, but her general location is unknown. Her six husbands are all deceased. On the shows, she makes dark remarks about them.

5 shoot the moon

If you’ve played the 3D generation of Grand Theft Auto, you’re familiar with this Easter egg. In GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, if you shoot the moon with a sniper rifle, its size will change. After three shots, the size of the moon will be reset.

There is absolutely no advantage to shooting the moon. It’s just a nice novelty from an earlier era. If you want to try it out for yourself, you can buy a sniper from Ammo-Nation or find one in a handful of places around the map. However, your story progress will affect accessibility and availability.

Collectathons might not be for everyone, but the rewards in San Andreas more than make up for the effort. From Respect and Luck boosts to entire weapon sets in your Houses, it’s worth finding those Oysters, Horseshoes, Snapshots, and Tags. There is a fake tag that might confuse you.

At Vinewood Cemetery, between 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., a tag appears randomly on a wall. By the time it hits 6:01, it disappears as soon as it appeared. Even after all these years, there is no explanation for why. It’s most likely a bug that turned into an unintended easter egg.

3 Catalina keeps her exes close

San Andreas brought back many characters from III and Vice City. One of them was Catalina. Catalina takes on a more understated role this time around, but she’s pretty much the same character. As tragic as Catalina’s life is, her antics throughout the franchise make her damnable to say the least.

Outside his house there are three unmarked graves. Based on her dialogue throughout the Countryside mission line, she does not treat men well, especially those she considers weak and inferior. Add to that his threats to CJ, and it’s not hard to see what happened in his cabin.

2 There is a developer gravestone

If you want to find an easy easter egg, head to Palomino Creek and enter the cemetery behind the Drive Thru Confessions. The only grave you can read is that of Scott Wilson. Wilson worked on the campaign artwork in San Andreas. You can find a similar Easter egg in another Drive Thru Confessions in Vice City.

Rumors tend to overemphasize mundane Easter eggs. Despite claims of mysterious lights, ghosts, and seepage around the tombstone, it’s just a run-of-the-mill Easter egg. What you see is what you get.

Although Gant Bridge may not have an “easter egg”, there is an information board near the Gant Bridge Visitor Center. Some of these facts were written from an outsider’s perspective. In the original GTA San Andreas, the sign said the bridge consists of 11 textures and 15,000 polygons. It also had a draw distance of 600m and took up 1.27MB of disk space.

The remastered edition has updated this information. Gant Bridge now consists of 34,815 polygons, 40 textures, and 38.9MB of disk space. A new fact about the birth of three babies during construction replaced the original fact about the draw distance.
