Grand Theft Auto V has been released for PC and it’s as good as you think it would be. Gone are the days of the lackluster GTA IV PC port. The game looks and plays beautifully, and with everything turned up to 11, the game will give even the highest end machines a run for their money. There’s nothing better than running around GTA V‘s beautiful world in first-person. Or maybe there is?
One of the things that makes the PC so great, is the ability for the user to “mod” their game. What are mods you ask? Well, simply put, mods are modifications that the user can install to enhance their playing experience of a game.
While GTA V PC has only been out a few weeks, we wanted to check out some of the mods that the community have been buzzing about.

Super Power Trainer Mod (download HERE)
I really enjoyed Saints Row IV. I loved having the ability to fly and run around at lightning-fast speeds. While the Grand Theft Auto franchise has always grounded itself in reality, PC user LinGon’s “Super Power ‘Trainer’ Mod” is set to change that.
The Super Power Trainer Mod grants you the abilities of super strength and super speed. This means you can live out your Saints Row IV fantasies in GTA V’s beautiful open-world. It’s pretty cool and it lets you punch tanks … tanks! Sure, there’s not flying or leaping into the air thousands of feet yet, but it’s a start.
You can see the Super Power Trainer Mod in action below. Thanks to Cool Junk Gaming for the video.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow (download HERE)
This one is pretty straight forward. Simply titled, “Snow in GTA Online” this mod does … well, just that. This one is interesting because it’s a mod for GTA Online. I’ll be interested to see if Rockstar has anything to say about players who are playing with a modified game; no matter the fashion. Needless to say, it looks pretty and lets Los Santos become a winter wonderland. Check out the video below for more. (Imperfectplayers)
You Cheating Bastard (download HERE)
The mod that started it all. The first outing by our good friend LinGon, “The LinGon PC Trainer” allows you do what we all know you want to … cheat.
With a simple activation, this mod gives the player access to things like: unlimited money, infinite health and ammo, the ability to reset your wanted level, and infinite stamina. Oh, and just in case you wanted a little more, the trainer gives you the ability to use “bullet time” allowing the player to put the game into slow motion. The icing on the cake though is the ability to teleport to any waypoint that you set. No more long car rides across Los Santos for you.
Here’s a video from LinGon himself showing off all the trainer has to offer.
So there you have it. Three mods that we think every Grand Theft Auto V player should check out. The modding community for this game is still young, so we know there are going to be even crazier things coming in the future.
