Small GTA Online peyote plants have sprouted up in locations all over Los Santos and Blaine County, and if you chow down on one of them then you'll be in a perfect position to cause some chaos. If you've previously been to any of the GTA 5 peyote plant locations for a cactus snack in the single player game then you'll know what effect they have, but if this is fresh information then here's what you need to know. The GTA Online peyote plants are tiny hallucinogenic cacti growing all around the island in GTA Online, and when you find and eat one you'll take on the form of an animal – wild, right?

Interestingly, not only can you use that animal's abilities to run amok and hound the innocent NPCs you encounter, but all the other players in your session can also see you in your animal form and interact accordingly. When we turned into a deer, our reign of terror was only ended when we were knocked down by a fellow player's car before they finished us off with a drive-by. Read on, and we'll show you where to find all of the GTA Online peyote plant locations.

Follow the vibrations getting stronger until you discover the GTA Online peyote plant, which looks like a small green puck with some white flowers on top. When you're close enough, press right on the d-pad to begin your transformation into animal form. Each creature has its own controls, so pay attention to the tip that appears in the top left corner so you know how to use your capabilities. The hallucination will continue until your animal is killed, or you press right on the d-pad to quit. Now get out there, chomp down those peyote plants, and start causing some mayhem!
