  • Area 69, a secret military research facility – 5 stars
  • Easter Basin Naval Station, a military base – 5 stars
  • Police Impound Garage, if seen without a law enforcement vehicle by a cop, no matter how you got in, even by breaking through the gate or simply jumping over the wall, the cop will call for backup and an alarm will go off, even when you immediately leave the area, regardless of wearing the Cop Outfit or not – 3 stars.

GTA V and GTA Online



  • Flying shortly over Area 69 will not give any wanted level.
  • When flying over Fort Zancudo, Bolingbroke or the LSIA, a radio chatter will warn the player to leave the area immediately, or he'll be shot down. Notice the same message happens in Bolingbroke or the LSIA despite none of the two areas have means to shoot an aircraft down, only Fort Zancudo which is regularly patrolled by armed P-996 LAZERs.
    • There is a glitch that cause the same warning to be sent to the player when flying over the Los Santos Golf Club, though it does not always happen.
  • In GTA Online, the Lester service "Cops Turn Blind Eye On" will make all areas unrestricted, allowing the player to fully explore these within the time limit.
