GTA 5 is a more than 7 years old game but still is one of the most played and watched games. It’s because of a lot of factors including online mode, continuous DLC updates and best of all, GTA 5 mods.
This post includes 10 best GTA 5 mods to play in 2020. There are in fact several mods to choose from but I have shortlisted some of them that are worth trying if you haven’t yet. This list doesn’t include add-ons for cars and weapons but emphasizes on best GTA V mods that influence the theme of game and the world itself.
For people wondering that are GTA 5 mods allowed? The answer is YES. Rockstar has itself clarified that mods can be used in GTA 5 campaign but should not be used in GTA Online. So, you have to make sure that you do not switch to GTA Online while mods are installed in your GTA folder.
For installing these GTA V mods, you may have to install certain files first that you fill find in description of these mods on the GTA5-MODS website. Some of these include Open IV, ScriptHook V, ScriptHook.Net and a Trainer (Native Trainer or Menyoo).
