The Grand Theft Auto 5 data mining community has uncovered a secret Supply Mission featuring a downed UFO. The Chiliad Mystery Guru Team has apparently spent several weeks, including several sleepless nights, trying to figure out how to activate a previously unknown Supply Mission. After building an out-of-game tool, they were able to change a variable as needed which then activated the mission in-game. As said, the mission asks the player to visit a UFO crash site and recover secret alien technology.

A video taken of the Chiliad Mystery Guru Team running the secret Supply Mission shows the crash site in its whole, with a disc-like UFO sticking out of the ground at an odd angle. The player then must get out of their gunrunning APC and retrieve an egg-shaped alien object, placed underneath the hanging side of the UFO. Once recovered, several aliens spawn (that look nothing like the frozen alien Easter Egg) and surround the player. It’s unclear whether the player then kills the aliens or if they fade away on their own. Concluding the mission requires delivering the object to a special bunker.

The mystery remains as to how to activate the UFO crash site Supply Mission without manipulating the game’s data, if it can be activated at all. The Supply Mission has yet to appear in-game yet, despite assets related to it having been discovered almost two years ago after all. The Guru team believes that Rockstar could potentially implement the mission at some point soon, eventually leading to new single-player content. Indeed, the Easter Egg featuring golden peyote, Sasquatch, and The Beast came about in such a way.

For now, the conclusion of the Chiliad Mystery is likely to leave a sour taste in the mouths of those who have been following progress on the event. As interesting as it is to see the UFO crash site in motion, the hope has always been discovering a way to make the UFO usable in-game. Imagine flying your very own alien spacecraft in Grant Theft Auto 5’s multiplayer. That’s the dream for a lot of those following the Chiliad Mystery, and so a hacked secret Supply Mission with no reward isn’t going to cut it.

Grand Theft Auto 5 has many secrets hidden within it. This UFO crash site is just one of those mysteries, and it feels like it could be a part of a larger whole. Whether or not the rabbit hole goes any further, nobody knows. Let’s just hope that it doesn’t take two more years to figure out; after all, Red Dead Redemption 2 is less than a year away.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
