The eccentric world of Grand Theft Auto V is full of dire and needy people!
These people can be found at different locations in San Andreas and will ask for your help. These events are known as Random Events and although the rewards are not amazing but the flavor they add to the overall gameplay experience are totally worth it!
Read on to find all the Random Events that can be found while playing GTA 5:
GTA 5 Random Events
Locations:Smoke Tree Road, Grand Senora Desert, Ron Alternates Wind Farm
Character: All Rewards: None
You will see a BF Surfer on an isolated area of Grand Senora Desert. This event is kind of funny seeing what happens to your character if you go near the vehicle. When you get off your car and go the abandoned vehicle, a man will shoot you in the face with a stun gun.
After being stunned; you’ll wake up on a train track with nothing but your underwear. Now; I don’t like to think what happened to your character while he was stunned. Anyway, you should choose Trevor to do this mission (Any character will work fine) and trigger his special ability. Now get near the car and shoot the man to complete this.
You’ll find a number of redneck guys on Wind Farm and having some special time with each other. Get near them and try to listen to their conversation. When you get too close to their vehicle; they will get off their vehicles without wearing their trousers and being shooting at you.
Gun down all these perverts to complete the mission and collect their weapons.
Location: Grapeseed, O’Neil Farm, Senora Freeway, Ron Alternates Wind Farm
Character: All Rewards: $250 for helping criminal
You’ll see police’s siren turning from blue to red signaling that you can either help the police or the criminal. Killing the criminal will get you 2-star level for shooting in front of some cops. However, if you help the criminal by taking out the cops and help him escape, it’ll get you $250 and 3-star Wanted Level.
You can also choose not to react and pass by the scene without participating.
Very similar to previous mission, you will see the radar turning from blue to red indicating that you can either help the police or the criminal. Helping the criminal will get you 3-star Wanted Level and $250 cash. While helping the police will get you 2-star Wanted Level.
Alternatively, you can choose not to react by going by the scene without participating in it.
Location: Little Bighorn Avenue, Rancho, Bridge Street, Hawick
Character: All Rewards: +3 Stamina
Get to this location and you’ll see a guy screaming about his stolen cycle. The thief will appear as a red dot on your mini-map. You can take out this thief by either running over him with your car or by shooting at him.
Once you kill him, take the cycle and get it back to the owner to receive some shares in Animal Ark worth $1,000,000.
You will see a guy standing besides his cycle on a sidewalk. Soon, a man will come and he’ll snatch the bike; and run away on it. Once again, take out your gun and kill the thief or run him down by your vehicle.
After taking care of the thief, get on the bike to get it back to its owner to complete this mission.
Location: Mt. Haan Road, Grand Senora Desert, Tataviam Mountains, Paleto Bay
Character: All Rewards: $700
While wandering on this road, you’ll come across three rednecks chasing you. If you listen to them closely you will note that they’ll be screaming about you being an immigrant.
Note: They have different comments for each of your playable character.
Anyway, these guys will be riding the Sanchez(s), so it’ll difficult to take them down by your car. We would advise you to use driveway or get off your car and kill them on foot. Note that, they’ll also retaliate with the shotgun at their disposal.
Take care of them all to receive the money they dropped along with their weapons.
This is the same as the above one except that now you’ll encounter the redneck on the Tataviam Mountains. Just shoot the guys and collect their cash and weapons to complete the mission.
Since they’re equipped with shotguns, keep your distance.
While traveling on this road, the rednecks will appear for the third and the last time saying all kinds of racist stuff about you (Depending on your character). Use your drive-by to kill them all and receive their money and weapons. Like the above two missions, they will be equipped with shotguns.

After you take care of these gangsters, walk to the woman to automatically free and get her in your car. You will have to drop this woman somewhere safe. You’re GPS will help you there!
