After years and years, the Mt. Chiliad mystery in GTA 5 and GTA Online may be solved. And like many long-standing mysteries, it ends in a bit of a disappointment. Aliens are in GTA Online, but you might be better off watching a YouTube video instead of trying to unlock the secret mission yourself.

This information comes from the Chiliad Mystery Gurus, a group dedicated to solving the mysteries of GTA Online. While aliens had previously been discovered thanks to modifying game files, the Gurus have discovered how to properly trigger the mission, which involves a ton of grinding.

The mission can only be unlocked through the Gunrunning update, so make sure your game is up-to-date. From here, players will have to do at least 600 gunrunning sales, but the Gurus recommend completing 601 just to be on the safe side. Once you’re done with all those sales, you’ll need to start a supply run between 21:00 and 23:00 hours.

That’s it! While there aren’t many steps to triggering the mission, it still takes an incredibly long time to complete 600 gunrunning sales. The Gurus also mention that the mission is a one-time event and cannot be triggered again.

If you don’t want to grind out all those sales yourself, watch the video above to see the mission in action. To save yourself even more time, jump to the five minute mark in the video to skip over loading screens and generic driving gameplay.

SSj5_Tadden, also known as Guru Tadd, shared the Alien Mission on reddit: “Many many days, weeks, months and years for me and all the team have gone into this hunt and this particular find so please show some love and remember us when you're enjoying your alien eggs!!”

It will be interesting to see if Rockstar leaves everything how it is now, or if there are plans to expand on aliens in Los Santos in future GTA Online updates.

So what do you think? Are you bummed to see the Mt. Chiliad mystery may have all been pointing to this single mission? Do you think there is more to come for aliens in GTA? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
