GTA 6 mini games

GTA 6 mini games will provide hours of additional activities to explore, farm, and complete for bonus rewards. Here's a full list.

GTA 6 mini games

GTA 6 mini games, also known as activities, are side jobs, sports, or other hobbies that you can find and interact with across the GTA 6 map. Mini games help to break up the action a bit, and provide a ton of roleplaying opportunities depending on how you want to play the game. Admittedly, many mini games are just for fun, but you might find a few are required for some GTA 6 achievements, and to reach 100% completion.

You can expect to find all of the homestays that were present in GTA 5, and a few new ones which were present in Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2. Of course, Rockstar have yet to confirm a full list of Grand Theft Auto 6 mini games, but GTA 6 leaks have already given us insight into what we can expect come the GTA 6 release date.

GTA 6 sports

GTA 6 sports, whether played in singleplayer or the inevitable GTA Online update, provide the player with new controls and mechanics to master if they want to be a sporting legend. Sports generally don’t provide much in the way of in-game rewards, but there are likely a few achievements tied into the player reaching a particular number of wins in any given activity.

Thanks to numerous GTA 6 leaks and trailer footage, we are fairly certain that GTA 6 will feature the following sport mini games:

  • Air Hockey
  • Basketball
  • Bowling
  • Darts
  • Fishing
  • Golf
  • Hunting
  • Pool
  • Tennis

GTA 6 fishing would be a new addition to the Grand Theft Auto scene, but the system has been fully tested and enjoyed on Red Dead Redemption 2. Hunting barely featured at all in GTA 5, but the improvements seen in RDR2, and the rumors of an Eagle-Eye mode being present in the game suggest that GTA 6 hunting will be much more fleshed out and rewarding that previous GTA titles.

With a map estimated to be at least twice as large as Los Santos, it would be curious to not find a single golf course, tennis court, or dart board somewhere in GTA 6.

Gambling in GTA 6

Gambling has been present in some form in most Grand Theft Auto games, whether that’s betting on yourself going into a race, going to the giant casino in GTA Online to get some spins on the roulette wheels, playing a hand of poker, or getting a free car from the Lucky Spin wheel (which is updated in every GTA Online Weekly Update).

As such, we expect to see the following gambling activities present in GTA 6:

  • Blackjack
  • Inside Track (Horse Racing)
  • Roulette
  • Slot Machines
  • Three Card Poker

One game that we don’t expect to see in GTA 6 which was present in Red Dead Redemption 2 is Dominoes. While Dominoes can be a lot of fun, it doesn’t fit the casino-scene, or the bizarre world of Vice City that was glimpsed in the GTA 6 trailer. But, who knows? Dominoes could always be present, despite what we think. As GTA 6 runs on the RAGE Engine, it likely wouldn’t be too much effort for Rockstar or a GTA 6 modder to import Dominoes into the game.

GTA 6 races

One of the very first main missions (bar the prologue) in GTA 5 was a race in which Franklin was required to engage in several races to earn some easy cash. GTA Online set a similar trend with its first missions. As such, it would be extremely unusual if GTA 6 did not have any races built into it.

Races can be broken down into several different categories:

  • Street racing
  • Offroad racing
  • Boat racing
  • Airplane racing

Some of these races might be limited to an updated GTA Online experience, but there will almost certainly be timed challenges in GTA 6 which require the player to navigate an obstacle course within a limited timeframe. These mini games have been a staple of previous Rockstar games, including its most recent major release: Red Dead Redemption 2.

GTA 6 arcade games

Arcade-style mini games have been popular in videogames on the whole for decades. Previous GTA titles have had one or two arcade machines tucked away in a bar, cafe, and even shops for the player to find and enjoy. Sadly, GTA 5 didn’t actually feature any arcade games in the singleplayer mode. However, GTA Online, the multiplayer portion of GTA 5, featured 18 arcade games. Some of these may well make their way over to GTA 6. Unfortunately, as Rockstar did not include any arcade games in the GTA 5 singleplayer mode, it could well be the same for the latest in the franchise.

Should Rockstar confirm a list of mini games, or reveal them in an upcoming GTA 6 trailer, you can be sure to find all the latest here. So, make sure to follow GTA Db on Google News, and mark the GTA 6 release date in your calendar.
