The night-vision goggles share the exact model and HUD icon as the thermal vision goggles. After equipping the goggles, it is possible switch to another weapon and even drive vehicles while retaining the effects. As observed in the mission End of The Line, sources of bright light such as fire can obscure the player's vision while under the goggles' effects.

Grand Theft Auto Online

Night Vision was added in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Heists Update. It is used in the The Humane Labs Raid to raid the facility, where the power was shut down by an EMP. It can be used by the player by buying it from Ammu-Nation and activate it from the Interaction Menu. It comes paired with a unique black balaclava with 2-holes.
