Can someone in the know please tell me exactly what it means when I'm free roaming alone in Story Mode and...

- A blue circle zooms in/out around me on the map?

- A red circle zooms in/out around me on the map?

Is it red when I am hunted by wildlife (like wildlife has red circles when hunted)? Is it blue when I am I wanted by police? Is this part of a stealth system? Why do the circles change size?


- Am I correct that I have a choice as to how to treat a NPC who is flashing an aqua/red blip? Red = as enemy, Aqua = as friendly?

- A non-mission talking NPC has either a white blip or aqua blip because... ?? Some offer something? Some offer something to a specific player?

Yuh, I'm at 98.8% and I still don't know for certain what these things mean. Thanks in advance. :)

A blue circle is a random event you can do such as taking down a purse snatcher, Picking up a hitchhiker and taking them to where they want to go.


When you are Trevor and you encounter hitch hikers pick them up and deliver them to the cult which is a secret mission inside the game that can be accessed though your phone but you can only do so many times


Blue dots on the roads are Armored Trucks that you can attack and get money from


Red circle is someone you need to kill before they kill you.


Red Hollow Circles the ones you steal an NCP and a red circle pops up just ignore it and drive away there is no reward or anything from it.


Then you get the solid red ones like when you pull into a parking lot and you see three red circles they are the Motorcycle Gang roughing somebody up like random events you can ignore them but engaging them helps with your stats but you want to kill the red dots if you can but be careful they are wicked good shots if you don't have good enough cover especially the bikers


If you are talking about the blue blips that appears around your dot on the mini map that is your noise meter and the less noise you make the higher your stealth stat's will rise but that doesn't have any real affect on your gameplay

Sounds like its the noise meter

Running makes noise, and your blip in the radar will eminate blue "noise" circle.

Red is when you fire a gun i think.

Click L3, and you'll see the blue one stops. Speaking etc also does it.

If its is red/blue around your player

Blue- How much noise you are making(Walking,talking ect)

Red- How much bad noise your making(Blowing stuff up/shooting)

Its Awareness of the surrounding NPC's
