When a heist goes wrong or a mission gets failed, pointing fingers at each other is the first thing friends do when playing GTA. Here’s a guide on how you can literally point fingers in GTA V.

Grand Theft Auto V is by far the most complex game Rockstar Games have ever made. The realistic environment and approach towards its characters and NPCs are what keep the game going even 9 years after its initial release.

While playing the story mode is a thrill to some who want to have their fun by using cheat codes, GTA Online is a whole new world where players can roleplay their dreams in. You can just hop on with your friends on one platform (since it doesn’t support crossplay) and have a good time.

However, when things don’t go according to plan while you’re doing heists or missions, pointing fingers is easy at one another over a voice chat. But here’s how you can point in GTA V at one another’s character when voice chat might be difficult for you.
