Dataminers have found a San Andreas Easter egg in GTA Online Los Santos Drug Wars' files

On December 13, 2022, a few hours before the DLC update, a user named InfinityBesk tweeted that the newly designed Surfer vehicle is an Easter egg for the Mothership from GTA San Andreas.

Fans of the classic 3D Universe title will recall that the Mothership is owned by a character known as "The Truth." While the BF Surfer is already available in Grand Theft Auto 5 and its multiplayer mode, Rockstar Games has upgraded it to the Surfer Custom variant, which features a new paint job and liveries.

The new version is very similar to The Truth's car, with psychedelic hippie paint, peace symbols, and dove birds. The suspension of the vehicle appears to be lower than that of the original Mothership, and it also has new headlight designs and mirror installations.

Since no other details have been released thus far, it is unknown what the vehicle's purpose is or what performance and other features it possesses.

Details about the Mothership in GTA San Andreas

The Truth describes the Mothership to Carl "CJ" Johnson in GTA San Andreas as follows:

“The engine block is held together with a macramé hammock and that it runs on 15-year-old cooking oil.”

The Mothership is a custom variant of the Camper vehicle in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. It is based on a real-life Volkswagen Type 2 T1 and according to The Truth, he bought the vehicle in 1967.


The vehicle only appears during four missions and cannot be found anywhere else. It first appeared in the mission Are You Going to San Fierro? and later appeared in the Black Project, Green Goo, and Riot missions in GTA San Andreas.

While the BF Surfer Custom has customizable designs, the original Mothership cannot be modified or saved for later use. It has a five-speed manual transmission and a rear-wheel drive layout. The heavyweight 1,900 kg van has a top speed of 74.56 mph or 120.00 km/h.

Other details about the GTA Online Los Santos Drug Wars update


The Los Santos Drug Wars DLC is anticipated to include around 50 new vehicles, which will be released in different phases. According to numerous leaks, the update will initially include only seven models, including the retro-styled Declasse Tahoma Coupe, which will be available to all GTA Online players for completing The Heists Challenge.
