- This page documents Secrets and Easter Eggs in the 3D Universe.
- For information on GTA V, see Secrets and Easter Eggs in GTA V.
A secret (or out-of-boundary) is a part of the game that is usually not intended to be accessed. For example, the buildings where cutscenes are animated often aren't normally accessible in-game, but they can be accessed through 3rd party trainers. The Andromada plane in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a real vehicle used in a cutscene, but is never made available to the player but there is a secret way to obtain it.
