Snap Happy in the Wilderness: Rockstar Brings Nature Photography to GTA Online

Los Santos residents, prepare to trade your assault rifles for telephoto lenses! Rockstar Games has unleashed a brand-new Wildlife Photography Challenge and the rugged Declasse Park Ranger SUV for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S players in Grand Theft Auto Online. Dust off your digital cameras and get ready to capture the untamed beauty of San Andreas’ diverse ecosystems.

Photographing the Untamed: The new daily collectible invites you to track down and photograph three different wild animals each day. Explore the sprawling landscapes, from the sun-drenched beaches of Chumash to the snow-capped peaks of Mount Chiliad, to find elusive coyotes, majestic deer, and even the occasional mountain lion.

Gear Up with the Park Ranger: Adventuring in the wilderness requires the right tools. Enter the Declasse Park Ranger, a rugged off-roader built to handle the toughest terrain. With its four-wheel drive, sturdy suspension, and ample ground clearance, the Park Ranger will get you to those hidden animal dens and breathtaking vista points. And yes, it even comes with a handy roof rack for your trusty camera equipment.

Rewards Beyond the Snaps: Capturing these elusive creatures isn’t just for bragging rights. Each photographed animal unlocks rewards. Snapping just one earns you access to the Park Ranger, while completing the Wildlife Photography Challenge unlocks its Trade Price, saving you a hefty sum.

Tips for the Shutterbug: Finding and photographing wildlife requires patience and skill. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Timing is key: Animals tend to be most active around dawn and dusk, so plan your expeditions accordingly.
  • Mind your distance: Spooking an animal could mean missing your shot. Use stealth and stay hidden behind foliage.
  • Zoom in! Get close-up shots for maximum impact, but be careful not to get too close, especially with predators.
  • Variety is the spice of life: Don’t just aim for the obvious poses. Look for interesting angles, lighting, and interactions between animals.
