Grand Theft Auto 5 Random Events Guide

Grand Theft Auto 5 Random Events Guide
The world of San Andreas is filled with desperate civilians seeking aid and although you may think the pay is slim, there’s some pretty snazzy rewards waiting just around the corner. This Grand Theft Auto 5 Random Events Guide will list all of the currently discovered random events, their location (if viable) and reward. I began writing this a little late into the game as I didn’t expect the random events to actually include non-random events. So if you have any information to help complete the guide please post in the comments. The article will be updated and your name will be credited.

Blaine "Captain Camper" Smith is one of the original founders of Gamers Heroes. Now operating under the guise of Editor-in-Chief (purely because we felt the position was needed for public relations purposes), he's tasked with a lot of the kind of jobs that would put you to sleep at your desk. When he's not catching some Zs, you'll likely find him arguing points he knows nothing about, playing the latest rogue-like he'll never complete, or breaking something on the website that never needed fixing.
