The temperature is dropping in Los Santos, snow is covering the streets, and a scary figure is stalking in the alleyways. The GTA V snow event has arrived, and here is every detail about it.

The Los Santos snowfall is a yearly event that lasts around two weeks. During this time, different parts of the map will see different levels of snow, from a light fall to a full blizzard. The snow affects the gameplay, making cars more difficult to drive, so it is not the best time to race.

The event brings much more than just snow. In the streets of Los Santos, players will encounter The Gooch. This monster is constantly looking for victims. If you encounter it, The Gooch will take your money and snacks. It is your mission to take out The Gooch by any means necessary. Once you take it out, The Gooch will drop a loot that consists of anything it took from you, The Gooch mask, snacks, and $25,000.

To encounter The Gooch, you must be online outside of a building for at least 50 minutes without taking any missions. Just walk around to increase the chances of encountering it.

How to remove snow in GTA V?

While the snow is pretty to look at, not all players are fans of it. The snow makes it difficult to drive and affects visibility when flying over the ocean, affecting the aircraft carrier business battle. Unfortunately, it is not possible to manually remove the snow from the map. It will be gone by January 11.
