GTA Myths Wiki

Red County Sniper is a false myth in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


In 2014, a YouTuber by the name of Anothopholobystic Narathicolox[1] researched on the web about a particular myth called Red County Sniper. The YouTuber found forum posts about sightings of a mysterious shooter at a farm near Montgomery. Though the origins he found are never revealed as he vaguely speaks of the reports. It is further said in the video that if players try to approach the sniper in the farm in Red County, he disappears and spawns under the bridge near the farm if sighted again. These incidents are rumored to take place between 21:00 and 22:00.

During the video investigation conducted by the YouTuber, he claimed to have found what he called bullet holes in the water tower around the farm but these could be merely textures. However, their true nature is never confirmed. As the investigation progressed, no sniper or culprit was found hiding, neither on the farm nor under the bridge. Due to the lack of genuine evidence and reports, this myth is termed as false.
