Once Rockstar Games launched Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, it didn’t take long for gamers to start releasing mods for the open-world action game. These mods let players do everything from play as zoo animal characters to shooting cars from their assault rifles.
But some mods go well beyond reskinning characters or creating a few comical moments. Some modders seek to provide Grand Theft Auto 5 players with an in-depth experience far beyond that provided by Rockstar. This is most definitely the case for modder JulioNIB, who has created a very impressive Iron Man mod for Grand Theft Auto 5 that looks to provide a very authentic experience for players.
As the above video shows, JulioNIB has done far more than give players an Iron Man skin. Rather, players have all of Iron Man’s well-known abilities at their disposal for ultimate destruction and enjoyment. This includes the ability to hover in place a few feet off the ground, or move through the air at a rapid pace with Iron Man’s boot and glove rockets. Players can also rocket punch and slam into cars and people, knocking them a few hundred feet away with ease. But most notable among the mod’s added features is Iron Man’s ability to shoot rocket blasts (they look like lasers in the game) from his hands and chest.
We’ll also point out that it looks like Iron Man’s armor in the mod is pretty indicative of that worn by Tony Stark in the Marvel comic books and movies. As JulioNIB ramps up the mayhem in the mod, police naturally head to the scene in an attempt to shut down the culprit. Unfortunately for them, their simple bullets do nothing to stop the superhero from knocking cars around like ping-pong balls. Even the heavy-weapon toting SWAT teams do little to slow down Iron Man’s destruction.
It’s likely JulioNIB created this Iron Man mod without permission from Marvel, but considering the fact that the modder created multiple superhero-focused mods for Grand Theft Auto 4, including HULK and the Batmobile, it’s likely Marvel will turn a blind eye to this new mod. It’s also likely this won’t be JulioNIB’s last superhero mod in the Grand Theft Auto series.
Those Grand Theft Auto 5 PC gamers who are interested in trying out JulioNIB’s mods can find more information on the modder’s YouTube channel.
