GTA Myths Wiki

The Backpacker, or WMYBP, is a pedestrian found in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


The Backpacker is a rare pedestrian found in the game. He is only found in a small set of locations: the Los Santos Observatory at Verdant Bluffs, Greenglass College, near the Little Mexico safe house, and the beach near the Whetstone Bridge. Exclusively in the PlayStation 2 port of the game, he can also spawn at the Corvin Stadium in San Fierro.

In terms of appearance, WMYBP is a young white male, hence his file name, who wears a blue polo shirt, khaki cargo shorts, and boots. He also wears a large hiking backpack with a baby blue sleeping bag on top.

The Backpacker became well known in the myth hunting community shortly after the release of the game, after players began to pay attention to his in-game dialogue. This dialogue suggests that the Backpacker is some kind of missionary for the Epsilon Program. Other voice lines seem to imply that this pedestrian shares a friendship with Cris Formage, the founder of the cult.

The Backpacker will engage in conversation with other pedestrians, offering them brochures or telling them about the Epsilon Tract. The same applies to the player. If the player chooses to attack the Backpacker, he will pray to Kifflom and Krant. Many of his lines are references to specific Tenets of the Tract, for example, stating that dinosaurs and semen are lies.
