How do I know what ip belongs to who? Like for example, I am playing GTA V and get multiple ips from multiple places. But I can't tell who they belong to individually. Is there any way I can find out how to do this? Or does Wireshark just not do this. Thanks!

The game does not do this. You have a connection to the game server like all other players, not to each other.

Well I get players ips but wireshark doesn't tell me which player the IP belongs to. I'm not getting the Ip through the game.

OK, out of interest why do you want to know which player has which IP?

We were just doing it for fun because 2 people were having a debate on who can find an IP better XD

Of which I was not one of them.

Drop the IP in the search bar of ARIN.NET and see what you can learn there. Adding GeoIP to wireshark may help as well.
