GTA V blueprint in Special Edition has hidden messages under a UV lamp – we tried it, it works!

We’ve all read the Reddit post that revealed a really cool Easter egg in the Special Edition of Grand Theft Auto V. A user named November17R3 posted in r/gaming that he discovered if you look at the GTA V blueprint map under a UV light, a secret message, some map spots, locations, and other goodies become visible. It’s really one of the coolest things we’ve seen as far as Easter eggs go.

November17R3 posted the images in an Imgur album and we’ve included a few of the choice images below.

Not satisfied to take this story at face value, our Singapore office took the blueprint to school and with the help of a few enthusiastic students and one dedicated Science teacher – we tested the system for ourselves and damn if it didn’t work. For some of these students – it made their day.

If you have the Special Edition, you’ll want to make sure you get yourself a cheap UV light and note all the markings – or just read below and we’ll save you the effort at deciphering the message on the back side.

No doubt there will be plenty of maps posted soon enough with all the markings and locations found on the map side also, so we’ll save the rest of the spoilers for another time.
