|For the myth in GTA San Andreas, see Jetpack (GTA SA).|
Jetpack is a vehicle thought to exist in Grand Theft Auto V and proven to exist in GTA Online.
Many GTA fans believe that the Jetpack can be found in GTA V, due to a small symbol located on the bottom right corner of the mural located at the top cable car station on Mount Chiliad, which depicts a small stick figure on a Jetpack.
The Jetpack source code was found for the first time in the 1.12 update of GTA V by some hackers. By the 1.13 update, there were some new function codes added to the game, but there was still no physical Jetpack, so many people thought the Jetpack was to be included in a future DLC. A jetpack was finally added in the game as part of the Doomsday Heist update for GTA Online (under the name Thruster), though it cannot be accessed in singleplayer, unless mods are used to acquire the *Thruster* in single player.
There are unconfirmed reports claiming that the Jetpack can be found in the IAA Headquarters building in downtown Los Santos, or in Grapeseed. Additionally, there are people who think it might be in Fort Zancudo.
Inside of Lester's home, a box is adorned with a sticker of an Astronaut with a Jetpack and laser rifle. This could possibly be another reference to its existence.
There are also players who assert that Jetsam is related to Jetpack. Jetsam is also in the Fort Zancudo base, so that could be just a theory or a reference. And there is a 53rd mission, which is called Derailed. The mission is about a train that fell into Alamo Sea, so there is a possibility that parts are in Alamo Sea, or the location of the jetpack could be found out through the Mount Chiliad mural, as if one turned it upside down and placed it over Mount Chiliad on the map, it could show them the possible location of the jetpack.

This is the updated code in 1.13 update:
However, these codes were all removed in the next updates, which means Rockstar once was considering a Jetpack for the game, but the idea was cut.
