  • Revamped Wanted Level to be a progressive system with extensive customization
  • A more realistic and proportional police response
  • Arrest Warrant system that adds new gameplay after a chase ends
  • Significantly enhances the overall police gameplay

Arrest Warrants are a new part of the gameplay, escaping the police isn’t enough anymore - now you must continue to avoid police or risk resuming a chase you thought you escaped. Once wanted the police can identify you and your vehicle if you let them get too close. Once you escape you will have an Arrest Warrant issued for you and/or your vehicle and police will be looking for those descriptions.
  • Each character & vehicle can have their own arrest warrant. If the police identify your vehicle in a chase, escape and then get a new vehicle or risk the police recognizing it and starting the chase again.
  • Change your appearance by changing clothes or painting a vehicle to make it harder for police to recognize you.
  • Arrest Warrants are saved and loaded with the game.

With Better Chases the police have a much larger range of responses based on your actions. A chase begins with a limited police response and depending how you try to evade police will determine the force used against you. Drive recklessly by hitting pedestrians or police and you will quickly find the chase has become much more serious.
  • Overhauled how the wanted system progresses from 1 star to 5 stars via crimes & more.
  • Extensive customization allows you to tailor your own experience.
  • Build the wanted level based on crimes you commit during a police chase.
  • Police aggressiveness is now controllable and proportional.


  1. "Better Chases+.dll" & "BetterChasesConfig.xml" go in your GTAV scripts folder. If you don't have one, create it.
  2. "Better Chases+.pdb" is recommended but not required and goes in the same location as the same name dll file above. It helps debug issues by giving exact lines numbers during errors
  3. Install Stolen (optional) if you want police to react to driving stolen vehicles

Known Issues
  • Police will shoot you with stun guns and not arrest you above 1 star - you must use the surrender feature because Rockstar

Other Modders

BetterChasesPlus.ArrestWarrants.ActiveWarrant.WantedLevel = 1;

  • Cops should no longer shoot you with the stun gun when you are on the ground, already being stunned, or sitting in a vehicle
  • Changed surrender animation to one that looks more natural
  • Rewrote extra bust opportunity (surrendering) so you can initiate it while on the ground or being stunned so you can get up and get busted
