5 things players should know before playing GTA RP
#1 - What is GTA RP?
GTA 5 RP can be considered a modified version of GTA Online. GTA 5 RP is played on a modified GTA 5 client with each client having their own advantages and disadvantages. Each client allows players that host a server to demonstrate more control over the server and the environment, usually regulating the chaos that occurs on GTA Online games.
The 'Role Playing' aspect of GTA 5 RP allows players to create their own unique characters that can act as NPCs from the games, so the player can be a police officer, a hobo, fireman, shop owner, cab driver, etc. Players can surf through various servers, performing different tasks with their character to create a unique storyline for their GTA RP character.
#2 - How to play GTA RP
To participate in GTA 5 RP players will need to download the client first. FiveM is one of the preferred clients or mods to run GTA RP. Once the player opens FiveM on the computer it will display all the FiveM GTA RP servers present on the client. Once the player finds the server they want to join, they can select it and wait to connect. These servers are isolated from GTA Online servers.
#3 - What are the popular GTA RP Servers?
Each server has its own set of rules that players should go through before joining. Most of these servers require the players to go through a sign-up process and popular servers like NoPixel are pretty strict when it comes to their rules. A few of the most popular GTA RP servers are:
- Eclipse RP
- Mafia City
- GTA World

While all servers have their own set of rules, there are some rules that are deployed among the majority of them.
- No OOC moments: A player is expected to roleplay at all times and being OOC (out of character) is prohibited
- No Powergaming: Players are not allowed to do anything that would not be possible in real life.
- No Metagaming: Players are not permitted to provide IC (in-character) information to another player through OOC means, or vice versa.
- No Deathmatching: Players cannot kill each other without providing valid reasons to do so.
Most of these rules are put in place by the host to keep the GTA RP world a little less chaotic and prevent absolute anarchy from taking place. These rules create a fun environment for players looking to further the storyline of their character.
