Hidden Packages are collectibles in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto Advance, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto V.


The collection of hidden packages in the series is considered a side quest of sorts as the player is given the opportunity to amass rewards by collecting as many of these pickups as possible. However, hidden packages are typically placed in concealed locations or hard-to-reach places, making the task of collecting them fairly difficult.

In each game they appear in, there tends to be a total of 100 hidden packages scattered (only 15 in GTA V). The packages are also cosmetically different in each appearance:


In GTA III, collecting each hidden package awards the player $1,000, while following games only award $100. Special rewards are also offered for finding each tenth hidden package, and a large monetary reward is provided upon collecting all packages.

Due to the benefits of collecting hidden packages, it is considered advantageous to the player as they will have immediate access to crucial weapons and pickups, as opposed to having to go to individual pickup locations or spend money at a weapons shop to obtain often costly weaponry and equipment.

Collecting all hidden packages is also a requirement for 100% completion of each game.

Hidden Packages appear in Grand Theft Auto V, however, they are a bit different.

  • There are 11 hidden packages located in the ocean, mostly around shipwrecks. They appear to be briefcases, containing a specific amount of money, ranging from $7,000 to $25,000 each. Most are deep enough to require a Scuba Suit to obtain safely.
  • There are also 4 hidden package briefcases located in the Altruist Camp, after completing the Altruist Cult Shootout with Trevor. These contain $25,000 each.

GTA: Vice City Rub Out result.

  • Upon completing Rub Out in GTA Vice City, a Tiki statue broken in half with white powder (supposedly cocaine) spilling out of it can be found on the bar counter in the Ocean View Hotel suite. This is a reference to the Miami Vice episode "Milk Run", where cocaine was smuggled using similar Tiki statues.
  • In GTA San Andreas, a large "tiki statue", exactly the same as a hidden package in GTA Vice City, appears on the Tiki Theater in East Los Santos.
