The Varrios Los Aztecas, also known as VLA or simply Aztecas, are a relatively small Mexican street gang featured in Grand Theft Auto V. They have links to the cartels and are currently in a war with rival El Salvadoran gang Marabunta Grande over the drugs trade and drug trafficking according to Weazel News. Weazel News also reported that there was a recent shootout between the two gangs in the Grand Senora Desert. The Aztecas have also been known to be heavily involved in arms dealing.
Events of Grand Theft Auto V
In the storyline, the VLA are at war with Trevor Philips over the weapons trade in Blaine County. They even put a green light on Trevor due to Trevor killing one of their members, Ortega. The Aztecas also appear in arms trafficking side missions where they attempt to steal the package from Trevor.
Varrios Los Aztecas members can be found in their territory behind Central Los Santos Hospital around Northern Rancho. Many Aztecas drive vehicles and members are seen standing on the sidewalks in groups of 3-5. Sometimes, Aztecas will rarely spawn and be replaced by Los Santos Vagos. To prevent this, try approaching Rancho from the north.
Aztecas can be easily identified by their light teal/turqoise coloured cholo-style clothing. Their weapons of choice include Pistols, Micro SMGs, SMGs, and knives. They do not sport face tattoos unlike their rivals, the Marabunta Grande.
- During news reports they are referred to as the Los Varrios Los Aztecas, Meaning 'The Neighborhoods The Aztecas' which is unusual since they could have just said the once.
- In GTA: San Andreas, the Varrios Los Aztecas were known to be Anti-Narcotic, however in GTA V they are heavily involved in drug trafficking.
- They appear to share Rancho with the more dominate Vagos. Similair to how Alderney City was shared with the Korean Mob and Spanish Lords in GTA IV. But occasionally the Aztecas rarely spawn in Rancho.
- It's iconic that the Aztecas are based on the 18th Street gang as their rivals the Marabunta Grande is based on MS13.
