GTA V RP Guide – What is it and How to Join?

If you’ve been on Twitch lately, you may have noticed a number of big streamers playing GTA V again. The reason for this is GTA RP. If you don’t know anything about GTA RP, you’ve come to the right place. Check out our GTA V RP guide below.

What is GTA RP?

Via Allthings.

GTA RP is a mod for GTA V which allows players to roleplay on private servers. On these servers players take on the role of custom created characters and role play their way through different interactions (largely illegal). There are a ton of RP servers to choose from and each server is run by different entities. If watch any Twitch streamers playing GTA RP, chances are high they are playing on NoPixel, a super popular server among the GTA RP community.

NoPixel is a popular GTA RP server that many of the large Twitch streamers play on. This server is in such high demand that the NoPixel site has temporarily shut down standard applications for the time being. With that said, the site is still open to donator applications, so if you want to open your wallet you can apply via donation. Application does not guarantee admittance and you will find Streamers get priority so it is worth saving your money and playing on other servers.

How to Join GTA RP?

Joining GTA RP is relatively simple. First you need to have GTA V installed. If you don’t have it installed, install the game then move on to the next step. After you’ve installed GTA V, make your way to FiveM and download the client there. Once FiveM is downloaded, run it and it will ask you to point it towards your GTA V install. Do this and FiveM will install. Upon completion of the FiveM install it will run automatically. From the FiveM menu you will see a server list. From this list select whichever server you wish (not all servers can be joined without applying). Enjoy RPing!

Don’t Metagame!

As you RP, keep in mind the rules of the server your on. One of the most important pieces of advice I can give is on metagaming. Metagaming is basically the idea of introducing outside information that wouldn’t be available to the character you’ve created. So if you are on the same server as a streamer, you wouldn’t go to their exact location without first learning about their location through in game means. Just remember that metagaming ruins the experience! Don’t metagame!
