Zombies, are undead corpses that have been revived typically by an incurable virus. Most Zombies in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV and the other Grand Theft Auto games, are simply Mods which are used to make horror Machinimas.

GTA San Andreas

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, there are many different types of Zombies. Here are just a few.

  • Rednecks, specifically the bald, shirtless redneck who is also thought to be Leatherface.
  • Pedestrians that are modified to look like Zombies.
  • Strange Alien/Zombie mods which bring mods which look like Zombified crabs.

Many people said you can find zombies in GTA San Andreas countryside. A business called Zombotech is found near downtown San Fierro. In San Andreas, zombie-like pedestrians can be created. If the player lures a pedestrian into a Pay'N'Spray whilst he is getting a car sprayed, the pedestrian in question will have normal health, but will continue to walk even if their HP reaches 0.

GTA Vice City Stories

The only appearance of zombies in GTA Vice City Stories is in the mission Brawn of the Dead, in which the player must act as a movie stuntman for Spitz and kill a large group of actors dressed as zombies. The name of the mission is a clear homage to the 1978 film Dawn of the Dead, as well as its 2004 remake, which are about zombies.

GTA Vice City


The film poster

There is an article on the Liberty Cock newspaper referring to Zombie Elvis. There are also poster of a film "Boy Scout Zombies'', surrounding the walls of InterGlobal Film studios at Prawn Island.


In Grand Theft Auto IV, there are a lot of different Zombie types.

  • There is a video game/movie poster advertised in the subways called "Z Resurrection". It is believed that this was to be a mini-game like QUB3D, but was cut from the final version for some reason.
  • Loads of random pedestrians that have been given a zombified skin in multiplayer.
  • In multiplayer, by ranking up once, you will obtain the ability to play as a Zombie. The Zombie is fully zombified and only wears an orange pair of underwear that have the Rockstar Logo on them. This was done at a Rockstar Games Social Club event called "Zombie Invasion in Liberty City", and getting leveling up once in Multiplayer will unlock it.

Because of these, the zombies in GTA IV are believed to be an Easter Egg instead of a myth.


In GTA V there appears to be a zombie actor imitating as a zombie right next to a movie theater. Proof can be seen here. This is meant to be an Easter Egg but Rockstar Games could be hinting a zombie apocalypse myth. Other rumors suggest that the Humane Labs and Research develops zombie viruses and that the package Michael took in the mission "Monkey Business" is a zombie virus.

It is possible new players of GTA V can drive past the zombie actor in Vinewood without noticing him, then looking in the Dialogue section of the Brief tab in the pause menu and seeing one of his lines, may be the cause for reports of true zombies in the game.

There is also a mission in which Michael must play dead to get into the morgue. When the coroner's are looking at his "dead" body, moving Michael's head will cause one of the coroner's to say "He's reanimating!", a reference to zombies. The mission's name, Dead Man Walking, is also a reference to zombies.

Lurcher, a hearse added in Halloween Surprise update, has coffin with zombie mannequin in it.

Zombrex, which is a pharmaceutical drug used to prevent people from turning into zombies in the video game series Dead Rising, is mentioned in a Weazel News report.

    • I might have saw him in the first mission for the truth but maybe they were living versions of him.
    • He is not a zombie, not a leatherface or whatever, he is a countryman. That's it.
