The Loch Ness Monster flies through the air in GTA Online

Ever wondered about the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster? Well, the cryptozoologists among you could be in luck. No, you can't go up to Scotland and find her, but you might just get lucky (or unlucky) while driving around Los Santos.

Apparently, GTA Online's cheaters and modders are a creative bunch, ready to create the most bizarre and fascinating creatures to go around destroying the city.

As far as I'm aware, though, the Loch Ness Monster is known as a swimmer rather than a terrifying flying beast. Maybe the myth is evolving for the first time since the 1930s.

Nessie Shows Up In GTA Online

Reddit user SnooDoubts2153 was the lucky one, although they didn't seem particularly happy about their discovery.

"Well, we're f***ed," they said, before posting a video of them getting chased down Los Lagunas Boulevard by a helicopter modded to look like an unmoving, stilted image of Nessie. Rockets fire out of her neck, fins collide with buildings, and she ducks and weaves around counter-fire like the majestic monster she is.

Commenters seem less than amused with Nessie's presence in the game, criticising the PC version of GTA Online for being a hotbed of hackers. Allulaatikko21 put it succinctly: "Average PC moment."

Others are confused about what the creature actually is - Silver_Commando thought it was a Diplodocus thanks to its long neck, but Acordino didn't think so: "I thought they were herbivores, guess I am wrong because he is out for blood."

The original poster clarified a bit more of the story as to why this issue occurred. "A m*dded mk2," they said. "Dude in the mk2 wasn't the m*dder btw, he only used it, he died after firing a missile to the ground."

Well, at least whoever was flying the chopper wasn't doing it for nefarious reasons - would you turn down the opportunity to fly around in the Loch Ness Monster and fire rockets at your foes?
