Modding is an integral part of PC gaming, being one of the major reasons for many gamers to prefer PCs over consoles. The GTA series is no stranger to modding on its PC versions.

The series has a long history of modding, which began ever since GTA 3 was released for Windows PCs in 2002. Perhaps no video game has as many fan-made mods as the GTA games have. The GTA modding community is also one of the largest and most active video game modding communities.

This article explores a mod for GTA 5 story mode called the Chaos Mod V. The mod has been exploding in popularity thanks to GTA streamers like DarkViperAU.

What is Chaos Mod V in GTA 5?


The idea of a mod that adds chaos to the game isn't a new idea for the GTA series. There have been similar 'chaos' mods for GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas. Chaos Mod V by pongo1231 is an attempt to recreate such a mod for GTA 5.

What this mod does is add a new random effect every 30 seconds, the timer for which is visible on-screen. These effects may vary from setting all peds on fire to launching the player's car into the sky. Some of these effects are timed and will continue for 90 seconds, while others are one-time occurrences only.

The mod is regularly updated with new effects and features, a list of which can be found here. Currently, there are around 290 such effects that it can trigger.
