How to Point in GTA 5

Learning how to point in GTA 5 is relatively simple. You can do it whether you are on a PC or a gaming console. Here’s how to point in GTA 5 Online.

Pointing in GTA 5 on a PC

Whether you are pointing as a literal means of communicating with your crew members or are just trying to make a hilarious meme to share with your friends, pointing in GTA 5 can be fun. And it’s simple!

Those playing GTA 5 Online from their PC just need to press B to point at something or someone since this is the default keybind. If you want to change this keybind in the game, just go to settings and select another key that feels more comfortable for you to use for pointing.

Pointing in GTA 5 on PlayStation or Xbox

For those of you who are wanting to learn how to point in GTA 5 Online from their Xbox or PlayStation, you need to repeatedly press the R3 button on your joystick. In other words, you are going to have to press down on the right joystick many times in order to perform the pointing function.
