Team Guru outlined the “no shortcuts, no cheating, legit way” to access GTA Online’s alien mission.
To trigger the mission, you apparently have to complete 601 Gunrunning sales, and then begin a supply run between 21:00 and 23:00 for the in-game clock. “Yep, it really is that simple. But considering the amount of time it takes to do 600 sales means that this isn’t an easy thing to achieve,” reads a line from the Reddit post.
Additionally, the alien mission will reportedly only trigger once.
The original story is below.
GTA Online’s Gunrunning update, which was released in June, apparently contained clues about a secret alien mission, which modders have now unlocked and played. As Kotaku reports, the Gunrunning update’s code suggested that there might be a UFO crash site nearby the Zancudo military base. Now, the folks behind a modding group called Team Guru have found a way to unlock the mission, which you can see below.
As you can see, it’s not the most thrilling of missions. At least in the state it’s in now, the player comes upon a massive, crashed alien ship, with dead scientists in a swamp. There is an alien egg out in the open that the player acquires, at which point a few ETs spawn and must be dealt with. Then the player drives the egg to a bunker to finish the mission. Bear in mind that this mission, if it’s real at all, might not be finished, as it was discovered in the game’s code and before Rockstar made any mention of it.
