The Helmet is a clothing item that appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV, The Ballad of Gay Tony, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

GTA San Andreas

The Helmet first appears in San Andreas. The helmet is purely a visual feature and can be purchased from ProLaps. CJ can purchase four kinds of helmets;

  • Boxing Helmet- $80
  • Full Face Helmet- $150
  • MotoX Helmet- $100
  • Helmut- $100

GTA IV and The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Helmet has a much more major role in IV. The helmet is equipped upon mounting a motorcycle. The Helmet is no longer purchasable. Niko will not equip a helmet if they start driving immediately. Once the player gets off a motorcycle, the protagonist will discard the helmet, unless the player goes to mount the bike as Niko removes it, and it will simply vanish. Some NPCs also have unique helmets, while others wear no helmet at all. All of Niko's helmets have visors.

Helmets Niko can equip:

  • All black
  • Blue fading to white and gold
  • White with red and blue stars
  • White with red and blue stripes

Helmets are purely cosmetic and offer no protection against crashes and the impact of bullets.

Despite the biker theme in The Lost and Damned, the player doesn't wear a helmet on any bikes.

In The Ballad of Gay Tony, Luis also wears helmets, and all lack visors, unlike Niko's in IV.

Helmets Luis can equip:

  • White, red and blue
  • Grey and blue
  • Purple and black
