While some GTA players are already looking forward to GTA 6, others are still trying to make the most of their remaining time in Los Santos.

After all, if you don’t enjoy trying to predict what the next game’s map will look like, lack any hot takes regarding what it should include, and have given up on planning out your first playthrough, why not just try to appreciate the final stretch of GTA Online?


While some players have been doing so by hosting demolition derbies or cosplaying as LA Noire characters, others have been earning the cash necessary to buy the game’s freshly unveiled 50-car garage by selling drugs to its newly added street dealers, with a few having a bit of fun via the apparel they’re wearing while executing these shady exchanges.

Are you making a killing from selling product to the shady folks on GTA Online’s street corners?

Their ironic outfits form the subject of a recent thread on the GTA Online subreddit, which began with a post from user Marksman08YT. They shared an image of their character about to make a dodgy deal while dressed as an IAA agent, captioning it: “I am here to sell some drugs... illegal you...a, uh, fellow drug dealer.”

A number of fellow players were quick to add a few extra lines to their roleplaying scenario, with SpartanNation053 suggesting the greeting of: “How do you do, fellow drug dealers?” and Icyblackkat musing that the character claiming that it's their first day might be enough to convince the street dealer to trust them.


Others simply passed comment on the undercover cop’s attire, with a number asking how to acquire the IAA lanyard, which Marksman08YT revealed is from the ‘Operation Paper Trail’ missions for ULP, while user AgreeablePie simply said: “(A) suit jacket with cargo pants... oof…”

Meanwhile, some declared their intention to engage in a bit of parody during their next visit to one of the dealers, with user Bobburygust joking: “I’m gonna dress like (Ronald) Reagan.”

If you want to get in on the act for yourself, you can find street dealers in nooks and crannies throughout Los Santos, though you might have a bit of fun, as their locations are designed to change every in-game day.


That said, if you’re hoping to have an interaction with them, which could be quite profitable if you’re able to acquire some of the specific drug that they’re currently paying a premium for, you’ll first need to make sure you own either one of the Acid Labs included in the Los Santos Drug Wars update or a drug-based motorcycle club business.

Regardless of whether you’re starting to sweat while wondering if the person you’re talking to can make out the outline of a wire through your shirt, make sure to follow us for more GTA 6 and GTA Online updates as new vehicles and more arrive.
