Grand Theft Auto is one of the most famous gaming titles to date, being Rockstar Games’ most renowned release as well as one of the most popular games worldwide. Still, with so many amazing adventures and infamous challenges, many GTA V fans have been wondering if they can get mods for GTA V on Xbox in the same way as PC players can.

  • Article Breakdown:
  • Players can use GTA V mods on PC and last-gen consoles such as PS3 and Xbox 360. However, GTA V cannot be modded on next-gen consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One.
  • Players can use GTA V mods on PS3 and Xbox 360 with a method involving a PC, a specific save file editor, and a USB, although there are some alternative yet debatable methods as well.

Are There GTA V Mods on Xbox?

The Grand Theft Auto saga has been out for many years now, with countless GTA V fans engaging in all of the incredible challenges and tasks that it offers. However, modding has always been an integral part of the gaming community – there’s nothing like tweaking your favorite games to get the best out of your playthrough with some added benefits, plus the chances of completely omitting your least favorite aspects.

However, modding is not always cut and dry with every title, particularly when it comes to AAA gaming titles and online modes – and, the same can be said for GTA V. Scouring the internet for only a few seconds can seemingly open up a world of possibilities for modded GTA V playthroughs, as there are tons of mods to choose from.

But, things are not always as simple as they can appear – there are quite a few terms and conditions for modding GTA V, specifically when it comes to the type of gaming platform you are using, as well as the mode you are playing. In addition to these specifics, the vast majority of easy-to-download “GTA V Mods” are either scams or straight-up money grabs.

This is by no means a reason to avoid GTA V mods altogether, as the same could be said for just about anything in the modern world. It’s just important to be aware of this before getting started, as you will need to dodge these. Plus, players should always be mindful of the potential consequences – as, unlike more lenient gaming titles such as Minecraft, modding is not exactly encouraged by Rockstar Games.

Can You Mod GTA V?

It is possible to mod GTA V, although it’s generally more accepted within Story Mode where the mods used only impact the player’s private playthrough. Modding can be problematic at best when it comes to GTA V Online, and annoying or even infuriating at the worst of times.

Online ‘modders’ can easily ruin the experience for other players, not to mention the chance of getting banned, so it’s best to avoid using mods for GTA V Online altogether. In terms of platforms that support GTA V mods, the only proven platforms are PC and last-gen consoles such as PS3 and Xbox 360 (with consoles being far more complicated than PCs) while next-gen consoles like PS4 and Xbox One do not allow GTA V mods.

How to Install GTA V Mods on Xbox

Quite a few of the console GTA V mods involve additional, debatable methods (many of which are ‘confirmed’ by fans but are not exactly recommended). Some examples of these include getting a jailbroken console (RGH or JTAG) and an xkey – a few GTA V players have also recommended buying a Modded Account, although this is not recommended for some fairly obvious reasons.

There are also many fans claiming that it must be possible for all Xbox platforms, as they may have seen other players doing some crazy things in GTA V Online (to clarify, there is a massive difference between a player trying to use a mod and a player who is actively hacking the game, which is never recommended). For the most part, modding GTA V on Xbox is pretty challenging when compared to most gaming titles and platforms, but it is possible in certain cases.

Xbox 360

The method below can be used for Xbox 360 and for PS3, but players will need a PC to start off with. Follow the steps below in order to mod GTA V on Xbox 360.

  1. Download the GTA 5 Save Editor v2.0.0.8 (PS3 & Xbox360) Mod from GTAinside.
  2. Install the save editor on your PC.
  3. Toggle the options available, which include the amount of cash you have, your stats, weapons, and more.
  4. Hit the Save option and save it to your USB.
  5. Plug the USB into your Xbox 360/ PS3 console.
  6. Transfer the save file over to the game and load it.

Xbox One

Many GTA V fans have been claiming that it is possible to use mods on Xbox One, although there has been a ton of debate surrounding the topic. There are plenty of “GTA V mods for Xbox One” in particular, including guides, steps, alternative methods, and much more – but, these are typically falsified to some degree.

As seen in the video below by XboxGrin, GTA V can only be modded on PC using the most well-known method, and they can be modded on PS3 and Xbox 360 with certain methods. When it comes to Xbox One, modding GTA V is essentially impossible.

In addition to the fact that it can be frustrating for players who want to mod GTA V on Xbox One, it can also land you in some tricky situations later down the line. As seen in the video below by XboxGrin, there are quite a few scammers trying to take advantage of GTA V fans seeking Xbox One mods – not to mention the risk of viruses and malware from untrusted sites.

Xbox One does not allow the players to access the files or content of the game itself, which is generally necessary for making changes or using mods. It’s pretty clear that Rockstar Games did not want any of GTA V’s players to use mods on Xbox One – fans will either have to wait until a DLC is released that allows mods on Xbox One or hope that Rockstar Games allows it at some point in the future.

That’s everything there is to know about getting mods for GTA V on Xbox One and Xbox 360. Although it’s theoretically possible to mod GTA V on Xbox, things do not always go as many have claimed – it’s possible on Xbox 360 but trying to mod GTA V on Xbox One may be particularly risky, and modding GTA V Online is never recommended altogether.
