Hello finder. We kneel before you. We prostrate our continuing youth and vigor. At this altar that has been sent to us. Hello finder. Prepare to be made pure. Purity is everything. Pure flesh.

|~ The Altruist Cult's chant.|
The Altruists, also known as the Altruist Cult, is an antagonistic faction in Grand Theft Auto V. They are a cult living on Mount Chiliad. The word "altruist" means a person who has an unselfish concern for the welfare of others. In Zoology, the word is applied to instinctive behavior that is extremely detrimental to the individual but favors the survival or spread of that individual's genes, as by benefiting its relatives. Their main headquarters is the Altruist Camp.
The Altruist Cult is a religion comprised entirely of baby boomers that follow Altruism and believe that all other generations after them are the cause of all problems in the world. They also have an intense dislike for technology, even though some members use cars, and the entire group maintains a website, AltruistsUnite.com. Members can be seen walking around half nude or some even fully naked. The cult makes their home at the Altruist Camp in the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness.
A text from Ron mentions the cult requesting "lost souls" in exchange for cash. It is implied that the cult is full of cannibals, as Ron says that they "just want them for dinner" and are obsessed with "young blood".
Trevor Phillips can take certain random event people to their camp for money, where they are most likely cannibalized. Trevor has a history of doing this as he refers to the cult as his "friends in the mountains". While some of these give good money (one thousand dollars per head or a token amount of cash), others should not be delivered to them as they have more value elsewhere. Examples being a guy you can play golf with and a girl whose father will give the player sixty thousand if she is rescued.
After four people are delivered, an event is triggered in which Trevor is taken into the camp via gunpoint. Trevor then fights his way out of the Camp by killing everyone at the camp. After this, the camp will be abandoned.
