Metagaming on FiveM, or in any role-playing game, is when a player uses information or knowledge that their character wouldn't have in the game, usually for their advantage. This is generally considered bad roleplay as it disrupts the game's immersion and balance. Two examples of metagaming in FiveM would be: 1. If a player uses a live chat or stream to find out where another character is in the game, and goes directly there to interact – or harm – that player, even though their in-game character wouldn't have the means to know this. For example, watching a Twitch stream of your friend playing FiveM in a hidden location, and then your in-game character suddenly "finds" them at this location without any hints. 2. If a player is down and communicating over Discord or any out-of-game communication method to tell their friends where they are or the situation that has just occurred to them. In a realistic scenario, if their character is down, they shouldn't be able to communicate at all. In both cases, the players are gaining outside knowledge that their characters wouldn't naturally have access to, disrupting the game balance and undermining the role-playing element. The best rule of thumb when playing these kinds of games is to keep in-game and out-of-game knowledge separate.
