The GTA BOOM Guide Creation Process: Delivering Comprehensive, Original Guides

GTA BOOM has been a leading source of news, guides, and cheat codes for Grand Theft Auto games for over a decade. Throughout this time, we have continuously refined our guide research process, evolving from simple text guides with few images to comprehensive video walkthroughs accompanied by numerous original images, detailing every step of the way.

Our writers create guides with the player’s perspective in mind. As passionate gamers and dedicated fans of the GTA series, we work collaboratively to produce the most comprehensive and original guides possible, ensuring that even the smallest details are included. Our videos and written guides are enhanced with carefully selected visuals to complement the text.

We adhere to a straightforward three-step plan when creating our guides, which we refer to as RVP: Research, Verify, and Publish.


As avid fans of the GTA franchise, we stay up-to-date with the latest DLC and content, keeping our finger on the pulse of the GTA community. We recognize that not all new in-game content may be immediately apparent, and we strive to provide clear instructions on how players can begin or complete any activity.

This may include a specific step in a puzzle-oriented mission, a hidden achievement that players might otherwise overlook, a mission that requires extra effort to unlock, or details on mission prerequisites that players may be unaware of.

When confusion arises within the GTA community or players seek advice and assistance, our content creators step in to find a solution that we can share with our readers. We not only investigate how to answer these questions but also consider the questions that the community is asking in the first place.


All of our guides are the result of original, in-game research and are produced in-house. To create a high-quality guide, the creator must have first-hand experience with the subject matter, enabling them to develop more comprehensive walkthroughs.

By playing through and documenting our guides at every stage, we can deliver the most thorough and relevant articles. Our guides will never contain filler content that wastes our readers’ time or skirts around the subject.

Instead, our guides provide a complete explanation of all the necessary steps or methods related to the subject matter. Our content creators ensure that everything is thoroughly explained by personally experiencing every aspect of the activity.

We only publish guides and methods that we have personally verified in-game. We take great pride in offering credible, original content and never release untested information.


Our guide creators meticulously record every action they take in the game and capture screenshots of all the essential steps or relevant locations as clearly as possible. By documenting the entire process from start to finish, we can be confident that no step, however simple, is overlooked. Our guides are designed to cater to both new and experienced GTA players.

Once the content is recorded and prepared, it is handed over to our video editors. The video editors collaborate closely with the guide writers to ensure that all the correct steps are showcased in the video. Our video guides serve as a visual reference that significantly aids those following the written text. Videos are equipped with closed captions to help viewers understand the actions taking place in the game.

When crafting the written guide, our creators have access to hundreds of high-resolution, original in-game screenshots, which they use to support their instructions. Once both the video and written guides are complete, our editors rigorously review their work before publishing the guide.

Our commitment to quality doesn’t end with publication. We continuously update our guides to ensure they remain current and relevant. Game updates and patches can sometimes alter how things function in practice, which we reflect in our walkthroughs. Additionally, when better solutions or methods are discovered or made possible by new content, we revise our guides accordingly.

Producing our guides involves a significant amount of effort, and that work is ongoing. Keep an eye on our homepage and guides section for the latest walkthroughs and guides.
