Aliens are terrorising the streets of Los Santos, bursting out of vans to beat gamers to demise with baseball bats, pool cues, and their little inexperienced fists then fleeing the scene. This isn’t a brand new GTA On-line growth, it’s the recent new craze amongst gamers. Over the previous fortnight, as movies of alien van gangs have unfold on-line, increasingly more gamers have purchased the foolish inexperienced alien swimsuit and joined up with different pranksters for old school beatdowns. I’ve not but encountered the guests myself however am having fun with watching everybody’s shut encounters.
Right here’s a typical alien encounter, one early on this newest craze:
You got here to the incorrect planet foo from gtaonline
That’s broadly the way it goes. They roll up in a van, leap out, beat you to demise, then hop again within the van and peel out.
Possibly they’ll pay to cover themselves from the radar, for further shock, then cease your automotive:

Or lurk outdoors a store:
They strike once more from gtaonline
Or wait outdoors the on line casino, parked inconspicuously by a pile of corpses:
You’ll be able to’t outrun aliens from gtaonline
Or catch you ready for a automotive supply, run you down, and punch you within the virtuadick:
Simply bought jumped by a bunch of aliens and im not even mad from gtaonline
Although it appears they’re nonetheless adjusting to Earth’s gravity:
Mission failed, we’ll get em subsequent time! from gtaonline
I am keen on this foolishness. Killing different GTA On-line gamers with out provocation is taken into account a bit of gauche by some however that is so splendidly foolish. I’d take 100 alien van beatdown gangs over one single dickhead on a hoverbike zooming round blowing up folks operating missions. When gamers develop bored with aliens, I hope some new foolishness will catch on.
Issues have kicking off between different species of alien too:
My crew and I had been harassing folks in alien fits with pool cues when one other crew threw on some fits and challenged us to a traditional avenue battle. Greatest on-line second up to now from gtaonline
Whereas the craze has exploded in reputation over the previous few weeks, this has been occurring for some time. Right here’s 15 aliens in a bus again in August:
15 Aliens, 1 Bus, 1 Purpose… from gtaonline
In an analogous vein, I did take pleasure in this squad of Minions doling out beatings earlier this 12 months:

(I’m sorry for all of the movies autoplaying.)
