by Shubhendu Vatsa


GTA Online UFOs are starting to fill up the skies of Los Santos and it looks like aliens might finally set foot in the game. For this year’s Halloween event in GTA Online, Rockstar has come up with UFOs, dangerous ghost cars, spooky supernatural serial killers, and freaky clowns. GTA Online UFOs emerge from the blue in the night sky over Los Santos and Blaine County as part of the ongoing Halloween event. If you want to see these UFO sightings for yourself in GTA Online, this guide will inform you about all the UFO locations in the game.

​Where and how to find UFOs in GTA Online?

​GTA Online UFOs are not stationary as one would expect and spawn at a fixed location, which varies as each real-life day passes. Here are all the GTA Online UFO locations:

  • Friday October 22 – Fort Zancudo
  • Saturday October 23 – Grand Senora Desert
  • Sunday October 24 – Grand Senora Desert
  • Monday October 25 – Great Chaparral
  • Tuesday October 26 – Palmer-Taylor Power Station

Apart from the date, GTA Online UFOs typically appear in the sky between 10 pm and 3 am as per the in-game clock and can be spotted more than once. There’s no special mode or games session involved and you can spot GTA Online UFOs at the said timings by visiting the said GTA Online UFOs locations. These UFOs will have bright light and can be easily spotted against the dark sky background. The Stage 3 of  UFO sightings might start from today and this article will be updated accordingly as UFOs are spotted at other locations.

There’s nothing much these GTA Online UFOs do currently. They simply float in the sky for a while and then disappear into thin air. If you try to interact with them, their tractor beam will flicker for a brief amount of time before they travel back into the cosmos.

​If you happen to be in a vehicle or piloting an aircraft, in that case, the engine will die out for some time and will start back up a few seconds later. Rockstar has added a ton of Easter Eggs and alien references to its past titles and GTA Online UFOs are nothing new. However, it is always interesting to see these glowing flying saucers in the night sky of Los Santos from time to time. With these many GTA Online UFOs, the developers might be thinking of adding aliens to the mix to terrify the population of Los Santos this Halloween.

GTA V is available now and playable on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
