Trivia

  • A pillbox is a small military guard post made of concrete that are generally used by MG gunners and small bands of Infantry soldiers to keep a resistance against an enemy force. Or to hold them off or to drive them back. Pillboxes are usually situated on hills looking over a greater area. The fact the name is used in the game implies that Los Santos was once under attack, most likely during World War II as real life Los Angeles had many defences guarding it against possible raids by the Japanese.
