GTA Online has a Phantom Car freemode event that the developers have added to the game along with a few other special Halloween events. The Halloween season has arrived in GTA Online and Rockstar has some great content and LTMs for players to enjoy. The Phantom Car Halloween event is Rockstar's way of praising the 1983 horror film Christine based on the book by author Stephen King. It revolves around a psycho car that comes to its senses and has a variety of harmful and destructive feelings that terrorize many children and teenagers. If you're looking to experience it yourself, here's how to find the Ghost Car in GTA Online.
How to start the Phantom Car Freemode event in GTA Online
In order to locate the ghost car in GTA Online, you must meet certain prerequisites. These are pretty straightforward and once you've followed everything correctly, the Ghost Car will grace you with its presence. Here's how you can encounter the violent Phantom Car in GTA Online:
- In GTA Online, enter "Free Roam" and do not enter a building.
- You'll have to wait until it's between 21:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. in-game.
- Make sure you are not using any particular vehicle or boat. Vehicles like Helicopters, Boats, Planes, Cars with Weapons, Deluxo or Oppressor/Oppressor MK2 will not allow the Phantom Car to spawn.
- Phantom Car will arrive at least 16 minutes after the start of the free roaming session.
- There must be at least one other player in the same session to find the ghost car. You cannot do this in a single player session.
- Once all of the above conditions are met, simply walk or drive until disturbing music starts playing.
- If you're in a vehicle, you'll see a Declasse Tornado with just its "headlights on" following you.
- If you are walking or standing, the ghost car will be on fire, have bright red headlights, and drive aggressively towards you continuously.
If you've had enough of the scary thrill and want to make the ghost car go away in GTA Online, try blowing up the car by shooting at it or try fulfilling one of the 'don'ts' requirements. The ghost car is undoubtedly a great way to enjoy a violent Halloween in GTA Online and will provide interesting gameplay.
