Where to find UFOs in GTA Online: Locations and rewards

GTA Online UFO sightings

Halloween has been a popular event in GTA Online and alongside Ghosts and possessed animals, players will witness the return of UFOs in 2023. Here’s every UFO location on the GTA Online map and the reward you’ll get for encountering them.

The spooky season in GTA Online is back as players can now stumble upon ghosts and possessed animals around the map. Last year, you had to look for UFOs, click their pictures, and send them to Omega for an exciting reward. Apparently, the event has returned for those who couldn’t get the UFO boxer shorts and the Glow Believe cap.

A new UFO will appear every day in GTA Online till Halloween which is why you wouldn’t want to skip clicking their picture. Players who missed the event last year now have the chance to get cosmetic rewards and enhance the value of their inventory. Considering that these cosmetics become available only once a year, they’re also pretty rare and worth showing off.

On that note, here are the locations of all the UFOs in GTA Online that’ll appear between October 13 and October 31.

There will be 26 UFOs to track down around San Andreas in GTA Online starting on October 12, with a new one appearing across 17 days. The last sighting will be on the Saturday before Halloween when the UFO event draws to a close.

The unidentified objects can only be seen between 10 PM and 4 AM in-game, so you’ll have to wait until nighttime rolls around to start taking pictures. Once you’ve snapped a UFO you’ll have the option to send the photo to Omega. Doing so will strike that particular ship off the list.
