The Altruist Cult's logo, as seen on their website.

The Altruists are a cult living on Mount Chiliad. The word "altruist" mean a person who has an unselfish concern for the welfare of others. In Zoology the word is applied to instinctive behavior that is detrimental to the individual but favors the survival or spread of that individual's genes, as by benefiting its relatives. Their main headquarters is the Altruist Camp.

Background

The Altruist Cult is a malevolent religion comprised entirely of old men from the baby boom generation that follow Altruism and believe that all other generations after them are the cause of all problems in the world. They also have distaste for technology, even though some members use cars, and the entire group maintains a website.

Members can be seen walking around half naked, some fully naked, with their penises on show. The cult makes their home in a small, but functional fortified village in the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, with numerous buildings painted with their livery.

Events of GTA V

After the mission Nervous Ron, a text from Ron mentions the cult requesting "lost souls" in exchange for cash. It is implied that the cult are cannibals, as Ron says that they "just want them for dinner" and are obsessed with "young blood."

Trevor can take certain random event characters to their camp for a reward, where they are most likely killed for their flesh. Trevor likely has a history of doing this as he refers to the cult as his "friends in the mountains." While some random event characters are good "investments" (as some give only a token amount of cash, as opposed to the $1,000 per head Trevor gets for them, or some give no rewards at all for being helped), others should not be delivered to the cult as they have far more value elsewhere, such as one woman whose father will give Trevor $60,000 if she is rescued, and at least one character who becomes a valuable heist crew member.

After four people are delivered, an event is triggered in which Trevor is taken into the camp at gunpoint. He must then fight his way out of the compound by killing all of the cult members. There are five briefcases around the camp which each contain $25,000 (totalling $125,000), as well as an RPG, an assault shotgun, a baseball bat and body armor as well as health on the gate watch tower, all of which (except the money) respawn. After completing the shootout and exiting the camp, the gates stay open permanently and no one will be there if you come back later, stating that the cult is wiped out. If the shootout takes place before RPG's are unlocked in the main story, they remain locked at Ammu-Nation, though if Trevor delays exiting the camp, the RPG respawns every couple of minutes, so it's possible to stock up on ammo.

A random event can be triggered somewhere in the countryside, where two cult members attempt to attack a woman.

Website

The cult's website, accessible with the in-game web browser, is "www.altruistsunite.com". One can find the logo of the cult there, along with a string of morse code. The morse code translates to:

[1st Cyan Block]

THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION HAS BEEN A DISASTER TO THE STABILITY OF THE HUMAN RACE.

[1st Yellow]

ALMOST ALL WOULD AGREE THAT CONTINUED FOCUS ON THE SUPERIORITY OF THE SUB 40 YOUNGER GENERATION WILL RESULT IN THE CATASTROPHIC AND TRAGIC END TO OUR CIVILIZATION.

[1st Green]

MAN IS A NOCTURNAL ANIMAL BY NATURE.

[1st Purple]

THOSE WHO EXIST IN THE INDUSTRIAL-TECHNOLOGICAL SOCIETY, BATHING IN SUNLIGHT AND ELECTRONICS, SUFFER FROM PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS.

[2nd Cyan]

HYPERVITAMINOSIS D CAUSES ABNORMALLY HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF CALCIUM, WHICH CAN CAUSE HARM TO THE HEART, KIDNEYS AND BONES. TOXIC CONCENTRATIONS ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF EXPOSURE TO THE SUN.

[1st Red]

CROWDING CAUSES STRESS AND AGGRESSION.

[2nd Green]

PRIMITIVE SOCIETIES, ONES WHERE CLOTHES AND TOOLS OF THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION WERE NOT NEEDED, PROVIDED A STABLE FRAMEWORK FOR THE FUNCTION OF SOCIETY.

[3rd Cyan]

ONE CANNOT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE DECAY OF TRADITIONAL VALUES YET EMBRACE TECHNOLOGY.

[2nd Red]

A MAN AS AN INDIVIDUAL, WORKING WITH AN AUTONOMOUS GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS, ALL OF WHOM ARE NAKED IN SPIRIT AND IN THE CLOTH, REMAINS HEALTHY TO HIMSELF AND OTHERS.

[2nd Purple}

SUB 40S ONLY EXIST AS SUBSISTENCE TO THE ALTRUISTIC MAN AND GAINS LIFE FROM CONSUMING THEM.

[4th Cyan]

BAN CLOTHES. BAN LIES. BAN DECEIT. EAT OF THE FLESH. DRINK OF THE BLOOD. WE SHALL BE FREE ONCE MORE. BECAUSE WE KNOW. ALTRUISM. THE GREATEST GOOD, FOR THE GREATEST GENERATION. WE SHALL BOOM AGAIN.

The Altruist Mantra

The cult's mantra can be heard when Trevor delivers the fourth Random Event character, in which Trevor is taken into the camp at gunpoint to which a cutscene ensues that shows members of the cult walking up to a point on a hill, to which they say the words:

AltruistCult-Mantra-GTAV

Youth

Ban deceit

Eat of the flesh

Drink of the blood

We shall be free once more

Altruism

The greatest good

For the greatest generation

We shall boom again

He has come

Hello seeker

Hello finder

We kneel before you

We prostrate our continuing youth and vigor

At this altar that has been sent to us

Hello finder

Prepare to be made pure

Purity is everything

Pure flesh

Pure blood

Purity is everything

Trivia

  • In GTA Online, due to censorship, most (if not all) of the Altruists are wearing some form of clothing to cover private parts.
  • In GTA Online, it is possible to start a gang attack with them at their camp.
  • A internet news article from the Daily Globe after the mission Nervous Ron reports the disappearance of several hitchhikers in the western hills and mountains of Blaine County. Its highly possible that these disappearances are connected with the Altruist Cult.
  • The website is modeled after the website of the religious group Heaven's Gate.
