The end of the GTA 5 Alien War has been scheduled, and we now know the time of the final showdown. It started as a joke, with players donning either a green or purple Alien Suit in GTA Online, and randomly attacking other players. The craze slowly spread online until gangs were popping up on servers all over the place. This was witnessed across platforms, including PS4, Xbox One and PC, with even Rockstar Games chipping in to help.
Last week saw developers offer up the Alien Suit as a free outfit, making it easier to jump in and join a side.
Grabbing a Baseball Bat was a little harder but you could still find plenty of Alien Gangs when choosing to join public servers.
And now it’s been confirmed that there will be an unofficial GTA 5 Online Alien War, which will pit Purples against Greens.
This has all been arranged this week by the community and will be kicking off later today, May 15.
WHAT TIME DOES THE GTA 5 ONLINE ALIEN WAR START?
According to the latest news from the community, today’s GTA Online Alien War has a set start time of 8pm ET, on May 15, 2020.
This is scheduled across all platforms and is set to include groups of Green and Purple Alien Gangs duking it out at Los Santos International Airport.
For gamers in the UK, that means the GTA Alien War start time has been set for 1am, GMT, on May 16, 2020.
The rules for the Alien War are expected to follow those of the GTA Online Alien Gangs – that participants use melee weapons.
HOW TO GET THE ALIEN SUIT IN GTA ONLINE
The good news is that buying and wearing the Alien Suit in GTA Online is a simple task, having been added to the game as part of the Arena Wars expansion.
Found in most clothing stores, the bodysuit can even be picked up from an Ammu-Nation gun shop, and will be found under the Outfits: Arena War section, listed under the bodysuit category.
The only drawback is that the Alien Suit is an expensive buy, costing over $300,000 in in-game cash. The alternative is to unlock the item via the Arena War Career but that also means spending serious cash.
And for those who want to complete the look, you will also need to find a Baseball Bat. The GTA Online Baseball Bat is available to add to your loadout for free, if you can find its location.
This is the weapon of choice for the new Alien Gangs but it isn’t quite as important as purchasing the costume itself. The easiest way to earn one is by completing a Contact Mission with your chosen character in GTA Online.
The Lamar mission – Where Credit’s Due, Gerald mission – Meth’d Up, and the Simeon mission – El Burro Heists, are confirmed to include Baseball Bats.
Meth’d Up might be the easiest, as you just need to grab the dropped baseball bat from a person standing next to an RV and then drive the vehicle to the endpoint.
An older option was to create a Deathmatch game featuring one via the Content Creator, but this option appears to have been dropped.
Baseball Bats are reported to spawn at Baseball fields across the GTA Online map sporadically, but we’ve never managed to pick one up through this means.
