Observant players can see some changes to the furniture inside the house and the clothing inside Franklin's closet.

3. How to get in Franklin's house

If you have an Up-N-Atomizer pistol in your inventory, you can break into Franklin's house in GTA Online. Firstly, just hop up on the wall on the left side of his house then follow it around. When you are on top of the garage, jump across to the main roof. Once you are there, shoot the Up-N-Atomizer towards the floor near the solar panels.

To acquire the Up-n-Atomizer, players need to buy it in Ammu-Nation. The gun is rather expensive, with a price tag of $399,000.

Players can still glitch to get inside
Players can use a glitch to get inside Franklin's house.

As the weapon cause a knockback shockwave, you would ragdoll through the wall and get up inside the house. Once you get in, it is possible to have a walk around and check out the interior of the place, just like in the story mode of GTA V. However, there's nobody home - you won't bump into Franklin in the living room or having to fight off Chop outside.

Furthermore, there is nothing much to do inside. You can walk around... and that's about it. There is nothing to steal and you can't move in to make it your own house either.

4. How to upgrade Franklin's house

It is possible to upgrade Franklin's house GTA 5 by using a mod (only in story mode). There are only a couple of mods that can do this, with the most common one being Franklin's Party Lounge Deluxe.

There are a lot of new improvements, from the completely overhauled Pool area with 200+ more objects to animals and even a parking lot and helipad on the roof. A lot of walls and fences are added to create the best mansion possible.
