Freaks and other strange people in GTA 5 are called “random characters” and can sometimes be found in Los Santos or Blaine County. All of these 15 different people can give you a total of 58 missions, but only 20 of them need to be done for GTA 5 to be 100% done.
When you meet a random character, he or she will show up on your map as a capital letter representing his or her name. Most of the time, only certain main characters can talk to certain weirdos. Abigail, for instance, only talks to Michael.
In GTA 5, when you finish the first task for a stranger, you will usually get the next one in the form of a letter, phone call, or SMS. At times, you have to find it again on the map and come to a meeting in person. The best way to get around is to use the map on the Social Club’s website. There’s a list of all the strangers, including the ones you’ve met and talked to.
You get money, new jobs, real estate, and other benefits for doing jobs for weirdos and other strangers. Each random character has its own reward, but some have none at all.

List of all the strange and weird people
The widow of Abigail Frank asks you to find pieces of a submarine.
A revolutionary and rebel who gets people to sign petitions to make the drug weed legal. He gives you jobs as an agitator.
Beverly is a celebrity photographer. And he needs help with this hard thing. It gives you photo hunting missions and paparazzi missions in GTA 5.
Cletus is a professional hunter, and he will teach you how to hunt in the forests of San Andreas. After that, you’ll know everything you need to know to hunt in GTA 5.
Dominic After you meet him and finish the first mission, you can start a series of quests that have to do with skydiving.
It will only show up in GTA 5 after you find all 50 pieces of letters. He killed Leonora Johnson, and in the mission “Starlet in Vinewood,” you will also have to kill him.
- Marnie (Program Epsilon)
Marni is a member of the Epsilon cult, and he gives him a series of missions. After you finish these missions, you will also need to find 10 parts of the Epsilon treatise.
Hao is a racer, and in GTA 5 he sets up street races. You can read them over and over again.
This person sells homes and lives in Rockford Hills. Because his business isn’t doing well, he asks Trevor for help.
- Mary Ann
She really likes sports, working out, and all of that. She also enjoys competing. So, she gives one “Running from Myself” mission to each of the three characters.
One of the girls Trevor used to date. She is a “bounty hunter” who sets up the return of people who are wanted by the law. Of course, for money.
When you deliver the target alive after finishing the first task from Maude, you will get the “Wanted Alive or Dead” achievement.
- Joseph and Joe
These two good-looking men are watching the border, and Trevor has given them a few tasks to help catch illegal immigrants.
- Nigel and Mrs. Thornhill
This odd couple gets things from famous people who live in Los Santos. And they give Trevor six “Souvenir” missions in which he has to look for stars.
In GTA 5, there’s a strange guy who thinks UFOs are real. After you finish the first task for Omega, you can start gathering 50 parts for a spaceship.
Tonya has been Franklin’s friend and neighbor for a long time, and she needs help pulling cars. She gives you a list of favors to do for her.
This is the only time in Weirdos and Other Strangers when you don’t talk to a specific character. In GTA 5, all you have to do is go to the place marked on the map, get into a fight, and start killing people.
Bonus characters and hidden ones
- Mrs Philips
After you finish the main storyline of the game (assuming you chose “Save Both”), Trevor’s mother shows up in the trailer and gives him a mission. It’s just a hallucination, though…
- Bigfoot Hunter
Only available after GTA 5 has been finished in full. In GTA 5, you meet a strange man who asks you to help him look for Bigfoot. Unlike UFOs, however, everything here turns out to be much less strange.
Only for people who switched from Xbox 360 or PS3 to the new versions of GTA 5. Shows up after you’ve collected all 50 monkey mosaic images and can be photographed at random.
