Mods allow users to completely modify the game and change everything about it, up to and including the character models. Here, in this article, we have discussed a few steps with which you can Install Mods in GTA V.

Mods make use of ‘memory hooks’ to enable them to tinker with the fundamentals of the game, and if you try to play GTA Online with them installed, you’ll be swiftly banned on suspicion of cheating. We recommend keeping a separate installation if you want to switch between GTA Online and a modded GTA V single-player experience frequently – definitely back up your game files before making changes.
