A Peyote Plant is an easter egg featured in the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V. It is a collectible that can be consumed by the player. Named after the real-life Peyote cactus which contains psychoactive properties, this plant seemingly has some sort of hallucinogenic effect on the protagonist's brain and body once taken.
Once the player finds a Peyote plant, an on-screen prompt will tell the player to press a button in order to eat it. If pressed, a short cutscene will play, during which the player will be seen kneeling down and breaking a chunk off of the Peyote plant, before popping it in his mouth. After this, he will faint and fall on the ground, and the screen will shimmer and display bright colors (similar to the effects of Weed), and then the screen will suddenly go black. When the player comes to, he will seemingly find himself in the body of a random animal. While this is obviously part of his hallucination sequence, the player will be able to move the animal around and (for birds) even fly it around the gameworld (using controls similar to those of flying normal fixed-wing aircraft), interacting with pedestrians and other animals. In the bird's body, the player is able to fly around the state, and will quite humorously be able to defecate on command (often times with comical consequences).
The player cannot choose which type of animal he can take control of. If the animal somehow dies, the hallucination will end, and the player will find himself back in the protagonist's body; as the psychoactive drug starts to wear off, the protagonist can be seen jumping around and waving his arms (as if he were a bird), and after some time, he will regain his senses.
Even if the player is an animal, NPCs will still interact with the player as if they were still a human. For example, if you approach some gangsters as a cat, they would talk to you and eventually open fire. If you fly as a bird over any restricted areas, expect a wanted level.
There are 27 collectible Peyote plant locations.
