Ludendorff is a small rural town located in the state of North Yankton, featured in Grand Theft Auto V. It is presumably based on the eastern area of Fargo, the largest city of North Dakota. The name Ludendorff could also be a parody of the city of Bismarck.

Ludendorff was established in 1945, and still retains some of its old-style buildings. Ludendorff only has two mission appearances in GTA V. It is first seen in Prologue, where MichaelTrevor, and Brad rob a bank in 2004 and are chased by North Yankton State Patrol, with Trevor being the only one to escape. The second appearance is in the mission Bury the Hatchet, which is set in 2013.

In both of its appearances the exploration of the town is considerably restricted, not allowing the player to follow any paths other than the main road. Before patch 1.08, GTA Online players could freely explore Ludendorff through a glitch, but it has since been patched. After this, players were still able to access North Yankton by using a slight variation of the original glitch, but this was patched once again in 1.10.

Events of Grand Theft Auto VEdit

In 2004, Michael, Trevor, and Brad rob a bank in Ludendorff. The police swarm the scene and chase the three as they try to escape to their pickup helicopter. The getaway SUV is hit by a train and ruined, and the trio escape on foot to their destination. A sniper hiding around a corner shoots Brad and Michael, killing Brad and immobilizing Michael. Trevor is forced to fend off the approaching police himself, and runs away from some armed pursuing locals. A funeral for Michael is then shown at a snowy cemetery, while Michael watches on from a distance and flicks away his cigarette and leaves.

Sometime between 2004 and 2013, Michael and his family, and Trevor both move to Los Santos and Blaine County, respectively. During Bury the Hatchet, Trevor travels back to Ludendorff to find out about what's in Michael's coffin while Michael pursues him.

They also use Police Ranchers with the same livery. The cars are fitted with snow chains on tires. Officers wear black coats over white shirts with black ties, and light brown pants.

Since they aren't scripted in the online glitch version, normal Los Santos Police Department units spawn instead.
