OK, who gave Vaas a plane ticket? The demented pirate lord from Far Cry 3 definitely fits right into the lawless streets of Grand Theft Auto IV's Liberty City with rocket launcher in hand and that unhinged smirk on his face, but who would ever think it was a good idea to unleash that psycho on the mainland? Well, modder wapeddell did (opens in new tab) , actually. And it looks like fun.

Like other custom models of a more critter-like nature (opens in new tab) , this Vaas mod completely reskins Niko Bellic with a high-quality, bump-mapped texture. This means a heavier hardware load if you're also using graphics overhaul mods (opens in new tab) or custom cars, but this also means you'll see the most detail you can get out of the game's engine.

Want to see more? The video above shows a particularly shiny Vaas doing what he does best after nonchalantly checking his phone. Grab the mod here (opens in new tab) , and if you miss the interactions between the mohawked madman and his favorite punching bag, there's also a Jason Brody model (opens in new tab) by the same author.
