The Best GTA V Mods

GTA V and mods basically go hand in hand. We speak of mods often, and with good reason. They're the things keeping GTA V in the news, they are what keep the game fresh and alive. Enthusiastic modders all over the globe keep making improvements, adding fun features (and insane features) to a game already overflowing with content.

Even though the modding community is massive, a few exceptionally skilled code artists stand out from the crowd. These people have given us the most detailed, more creative and most insane mods of all time.

First up, we have the work a modder who prefers to tweak some existing features instead of adding new ones. This is more of a collection of mods than just a single modification, and they focus on vehicular physics, revamping the drifting system in GTA V to make even more impressive stunts possible, as well as adding whole new vehicles to the game as well, such as a weaponized bike and a Pokémon themed roadster.

Next, we the dynamic duo of the Jetpack mod and the Grappling hook. These mods all about movement, taking two iconic downright legendary methods of personal transportation that GTA V was sorely lacking. The first is the result of looking to a previous GTA installment, San Andreas (also taking place in Los Santos), and adding the Jetpack everyone knows and loves. The ludicrously fun grappling hook from Just Cause 2 also got the GTA V treatment, and hilarious chaos ensued.

Lastly, we have a rather simple but brilliant mod which allows us to zoom around the Los Santos airspace like a true kryptonian. All you need is to add the Superman costume mod, and there you have it, a much better Superman64.

Tomorrow we'll be looking at some upcoming mods that show promise...

Have you guys tried any of these out? What did you think?
