Exceptional GTA 5 mod lets you play as Lemmy Kilmister

A brand new mod for Grand Theft Auto V is allowing players to become the late, great Lemmy Kilmister, founding member of legendary British metal band Mötorhead and take him on a suitably debauched tour  of Los Santos.

The mod lets you play as Lemmy himself and comes with a surprisingly faithful character model to boot. All of the things that Lemmy famously loved doing are present and accounted for – you can take him drinking, smoking or have him play his bass. You can also spawn a bunch of prostitutes to follow him around like a groupie squad (should that be something you want to do).

The mod itself is called “Lemmy Tribute Möd” and was built by Christian Brandes, FunGt and jedijosh920 with some extra work performed by Davide Violante. The video embedded above comes from YouTube user Schlecky Silberstein.

To complete this wonderful tribute, there are a number of hotkey commands you can use to recreate Lemmy in GTA. and they are as follows:

  • Shift+L: become Lemmy Kilmister
  • Shift+B: spawn Hexer motorbike
  • Shift+H: spawn hooker/s
  • Shift+J: Motorhead t-shirt (after Shift+L)
  • Shift+O: smoke
  • Shift+K: drink
  • Shift+I: play guitar or drums
  • Shift+Q: stop current animation (after smoke, drink or guitar)

Lemmy, real name Ian Kilmister, died December 28, only two days after being diagnosed with an “extremely aggressive” form of cancer. He was 70. The now-legendary band he helped form, Motörhead, released a statement following his death that said Lemmy had been playing a video game when he passed.

“He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made its way down the street, with his family,” read the statement.
