(33 Vehicles) – Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

The Grand Theft Auto 5, where players can get unique cars with the best weapons mounted on them. This turns their car into a killing machine against anyone who dares to get in its way on the road.

If you want to be a real menace on the road in GTA 5, you should look for these mounted weapons in GTA 5 and GTA Online. If used right, these mounted weapons can help players get the upper hand against the police, Merryweather, gangs, or even each other.

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

GTA Online has a lot of vehicles that can be armed, but not all of them are great. It would be best if you had something that makes you stand out from the rest of the average players. Or at least something that will make you a strong force in your lobby.

This list contains all details about the best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5 based on price, strength, and the weapons they have. There are different ways to play with each vehicle. But you can choose many unique and robust vehicles that fit your style.

It’s important to remember that some upgrades to vehicles require you to do Bunker Research first. But you can still buy them now and improve them in the future.

1

Annihilator Stealth

Pin

Having this armed helicopter makes you a dangerous person to mess with. You can use many different weapons with this vehicle, like the Machine Gun, Missiles Barrage, and Homing Missiles. The machine gun has two.50-caliber Miniguns that make the gun’s range longer.

In addition, the helicopter has a barrage of four missiles with a smaller blast radius and a short cooldown time after use. But the homing missiles don’t need time to reload and are much more likely to hit their targets. The utility for tracking missiles is the same as for homing missiles.

The Annihilator stealth differs from the others because you and your friends can move around the map without showing up on the enemy’s radars. So, this is the best vehicle for sneak attacks or attacks that come out of nowhere.

In addition, the stealth mode lowers the wanted level to just two stars, which can be very helpful. On the other hand, putting this vehicle into stealth mode will turn off all of its weapons, which is a big con.

The Annihilator Stealth is less strong than other vehicles when dealing with explosives. It only takes one RPG or Homing Launcher to take out the enemy. This makes it very easy to attack, and a single missile from a troll can quickly ruin your fun.

It can go as fast as 149 mph, which is very fast and can help you get to different places on the map. Also, since it is a helicopter, it can go anywhere on the road, making it more useful for missions or travel.

2

Grotti Vigilante

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

When you buy this vehicle, it will have two Machine Guns that face forward and two launchers for missiles that can find their way home. The machine guns do a lot of damage to both people and vehicles with weak armor. But there are better choices than the machine gun against vehicles with a lot of armor.

The tracking on the homing missiles is excellent, but it takes 1.5 seconds to fire the next one. This takes 1 second and is a little longer than other vehicles. Also, they can only hold 30 missiles, which is another bad thing about them.

Pin

The Grotti Vigilante doesn’t handle explosives very well. It only takes one Homing Launcher or RPG to destroy this vehicle. But the windows are bulletproof so that guns won’t do much damage to them.
The maximum speed of this vehicle is surprisingly good. With a top speed of 147 mph, it’s a great way to escape danger and pass other cars.

3

Scramjet

Pin

Like the Vigilante, the Scramjet has two machine guns and two missiles that can find their targets. The machine gun does a lot of damage to small armored vehicles and players. Still, it will do less damage to heavily armored vehicles.

The homing missiles are accurate and always head straight for what you want to hit. But it can only hold 30 missiles, which could be a problem. Also, the missile fires every 1.5 seconds, while it takes other vehicles 1 second to reload.

Pin

The Scramjet is not safe from bullets, nor is it safe from explosions. One RPG or homing missile will destroy the vehicle. The boost is the best thing about this car. For 2.5 seconds, you can use its rocket booster to speed up a lot. You can also turn off the booster to have more control over how you boost. The boost has a four-second cooldown time.

This method for controlling the rocket booster comes in handy when doing trick jumps. If you can control the booster while it’s in the air, you can go much farther than usual. The Scramjet can go as fast as 137 mph, its top speed.

4

Barrage

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

The Barrage does a lot of damage very quickly. We can use either Miniguns, machine guns, or grenade launchers on either of the two turrets. As mentioned above, the machine gun comes with a. 50-caliber machine gun that does the same damage as the Vigilante and Scramjet.

But the Minigun is a much better choice because it fires faster. Because of this, vehicles can be destroyed almost as soon as the Minigun starts firing at them.

A grenade launcher is another thing you can put on the Barrage. A 40mm grenade launcher with a great range of 150 meters can be yours. This does a lot of damage and is helpful because the rounds explode half a second after it hits the ground.

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

It can only hold 20 rounds and has a mode that automatically aims. But this mode could be better for moving vehicles because the target throws a grenade from where it was before. The vehicle might have moved since then, and the grenade explosion won’t affect it.

The Barrage is one of the best vehicles to use as a weapon in GTA Online because it can handle explosions so well. The Barrage is strong enough to stop 14 Homing Missiles or 5 RPGs. Because it has excellent armor, this is a great vehicle to keep you safe from jerks. Aside from that, it is also bulletproof, which makes sense since it can already stop missiles.

The top speed is 108.75 mph, faster than expected for a heavy vehicle. But it’s not the best when you need to escape something dangerous.

5

Akula

Pin

The second armed helicopter on the list is the Akula, one of GTA Online’s best armed vehicles. It is better in every way than the Annihilator, and we will discuss the wide range of weapons in detail.

It has one .50 caliber machine gun, which does a lot of damage to vehicles and players with weak armor. Because the turret is unstable, it may be hard to aim while moving the helicopter.
When you upgrade Akula, you will get two miniguns with a.50 caliber.

These have a more extended range, but they fire less often. Depending on how you use the car, this could be a pro or a con. This vehicle comes with Homing Missiles and Barrage Missiles, but you can only use one at a time. The Barrage Missiles have a long range and do a lot of damage, but you can only fire four at once. It only lasts for a short time, but it’s worth it.

Like most other homing missiles, the Homing Missiles are very dangerous and accurate. They don’t need to cool down, so you can keep firing missiles at your enemies. But it has a shorter range for locking on. The ability to set up bombs is an excellent thing about Akula. There are Explosive, Incendiary, Gas, and Cluster bombs among these.

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

Explosive bombs do the same amount of damage at the edge of the blast radius as they do in the middle. When incendiary bombs hit their targets, they catch fire and take damage all the time. At the center of the blast, these bombs do a lot of damage, but the damage is less at the edges.

Tear gas is the same thing as a gas bomb. It hurts both NPCs and players, and its blast radius is more prominent. But it doesn’t hurt vehicles and only lasts about 25 seconds. In addition to the main explosion, cluster bombs make a lot of smaller ones. These make it possible to do more damage to a single target.

Compared to the other helicopter on the list, it is more challenging to blow up. Akula can take up to three Homing Missiles or three RPGs before it explodes. It is also safe from bullets coming from behind.

Akula can go as fast as 157 mph, which is blazing fast. This helicopter is excellent in every way, making it one of the best weapons-equipped cars in GTA Online.

6

Buffalo STX

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

The Bravado Buffalo STX is a great car all the way through. It can add two machine guns in front that the person driving can control. These. 50-caliber machine guns will do good damage to vehicles or players with weak armor. But it won’t work as well against vehicles with a lot of armor.

You can also put slick Proximity Mines on Bravado Buffalo STX. When they go off, they spray a lot of oil on the ground, which makes it hard for vehicles to stay in control. But neither vehicles nor players take damage from this feature.

Pin

It has a Missile Lock-on Jammer, which is an excellent thing about it. So, other players can’t target Buffalo STX and send missiles at it. This makes it even harder to destroy.

After the upgrade, this vehicle will have more armor padding, making it much stronger than it already is. The Buffalo STX can withstand up to 12 Homing Missiles and 4 RPGs, which makes it very hard to kill.

The windows of the car are also resistant to bullets. Since the vehicle can survive explosive missiles, this makes sense. It can go as fast as 126 mph, suitable for a vehicle with so much armor.

7

Toreador

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

It comes with two fixed machine guns that face forward. They do more damage than other weapons and can blow up vehicles without armor in less than 5 seconds. It also has a missile launcher with a lock-on range shorter than most. The missile launcher can fire as many missiles as it wants but can’t be used in water.

But if the missiles fly past the target, they won’t turn around and go back toward it. This Toreador is one of a kind because it can fire Torpedoes even when it is underwater. Even though the Torpedoes have a shorter lock-on range, they can hit targets on land or in the air near the water’s surface.

But the Torpedoes take 1.5 seconds to reload, while most other weapons take only one second. But that doesn’t change the fact that this vehicle can hurt players on land and is hard to hit when it’s underwater.

Pin

The Toreador is a car that can go on land and water. This makes it very useful. Its weapons already talk about how it can fire rockets from underwater.

The Toreador is good at staying alive when attacked with explosives. It can hold up to two RPGs or six Homer Missiles. It is also safe because it can stop bullets.

When fully upgraded, the Toreador can go as fast as 135 mph. In addition, it has a “Rocket Boost” that lets you reach top speed much more quickly. The boost, which can be refilled, accelerates quickly and helps you escape enemies.

8

Ruiner 2000

Pin

The player driving the Ruiner 2000 can use the two machine guns on the front of the car. The machine guns do a lot of damage to players and vehicles with weak armor. But against heavily armored vehicles, there are better choices.

It also has two rocket launchers that do a lot of damage. The best thing about this vehicle is that its missiles are better at tracking than other vehicles. It does a great job of following targets and is almost impossible to avoid.

Since the missile tracking was too good to be true, it only had room for 8 rockets and a shorter range.
It’s important to talk about the Ruiner 2000’s extra features, which set it apart from other vehicles.

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

The roof has a parachute. This keeps the vehicle from taking damage when it falls and lets it survive shocking falls by slowing the speed of the fall. This can also help the car land safely if it flips over in the air. Power Hop of the car lets it jump about 4 meters.

It only takes a short time to cool down and helps you overcome obstacles or people. Because of this, this car is one of the best weapons-equipped cars in GTA Online.

The Ruiner 2000 isn’t the best GTA vehicle that can handle explosions. It can only take one RPG or Homing Missile before it goes up in flames. The car is also not safe from bullets. The Ruiner 2000 can go as fast as 119 mph. Not really fast, but slow too. It’s a well-balanced car with features that will help the players in certain situations.

9

Kurtz 31 Patrol Boat

Pin

The gunners in the two turrets of the Kurtz 31 Patrol Boat are different. It also has a Dual MG that can turn 200 degrees in a wide arc. The vehicle is excellent against vehicles and players that don’t have armor, but it could be better against armored vehicles.

It also has a machine gun on the back end that can rotate 112 degrees. This does more damage than the Dual MG, but better choices exist for fighting heavily armored vehicles.

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

If you know how to use it, this vehicle is easy to drive and can avoid missiles. But there is a problem with how long they last. It only takes one Homer missile or one RPG to wreck the boat. The fastest it can go is 37 mph, which is not very fast, even for a boat.

10

APC Tank

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

The APC Tank is a big, powerful machine with weapons that do a lot of damage and a strong defense. One is the primary weapon, and the other two are secondary weapons. The person in the front seat controls the primary weapon, and the people in the back seat shoot the secondary weapons.

You can use either the Cannon or the SAM Battery as the primary weapon. The Cannon turret is a great weapon that can take out most vehicles with a single shot. This Tank is a good choice because it has a too-strong gun.

The second choice is the SAM Battery, a set of six missile launchers. Even though there isn’t much ammo, 60 of them are still a lot. Even though the missiles have an excellent range and firepower, they don’t have loa lock-on.

Pin

You can attach the usual .50 caliber Machine gun turrets for the secondary weapons. It’s a good choice for players and low-armored vehicles, but it will only work well against heavily armored vehicles. The APC Tank can also be fitted with proximity mines, which are like remote bombs set off by the vehicle’s driver. Also, the damage is much worse than other remote explosives, but there is only enough power for five active mines.

Since it’s a tank, it should be able to handle bombs and explosions well. The APC Tank can take eight Homing missiles or eight RPGs before it blows up. This Tank will protect you from griefers for sure.
Surprisingly, this Tank isn’t bulletproof, and getting shot through the tiny windows is possible. If you improve this vehicle, it can stand up to six sticky bombs.

One of the best things about the APC Tank is that it can completely crush cars that get in its way. If you have a tank with you, you’ll never have to worry about traffic. This big, heavy car can go 63 mph but starts moving very slowly. Before this Tank can move as fast as a running NPC, it will take almost seven seconds. In addition to that, the brakes on it are terrible.

You should avoid using this vehicle to catch up to another player. But it is an excellent weaponized car that you should think about keeping in your garage.

11

Thruster

Pin

This jetpack is a rapid and fun way to get around. The Thruster can also have two weapon turrets added to it. The first choice is the machine gun, which is just as powerful as the machine gun from Annihilator and Akula.

The machine gun is a good choice against players or vehicles with little protection. Still, it may need to be more helpful against heavily armored cars. Thruster can also have two missile pods added to it. You can set them to lock-on mode, but they can only hold 30 rockets. Also, it needs some time to cool down whenever it fires two rockets in a row.

The great thing about the Thruster is that it can stop missiles that can find their way home. The Chaff countermeasure messes with the homing missile’s lock-on system, which stops it from locking on for 5 seconds. This ability can be used ten times and then stops working for 5 seconds.

Pin

The Flare also throws off the homing missiles and changes their paths. They will start to follow the Flare, so you don’t have to worry about them.

This vehicle is tiny and light, so it doesn’t last very long. It only takes one RPG or homing missile to take out this vehicle. This vehicle is very open, so other players can quickly hurt the player. The Thruster can go as fast as 126 mph and handle and accelerate in intense ways. If you’ve upgraded the vehicle, it takes off almost immediately, a must-have.

12

Tula

Pin

Tula is a one-of-a-kind plane that is armed and has a lot of weapons and guns on it. It has one turret on the back and another one on the front. The machine gun in the front turret is similar to the one on Ruiner 2000.

The rear turret can have a Machine Gun, a Minigun, or a Dual MG machine gun. The Dual MG machine gun has a much faster rate of fire, which makes it much more dangerous. You could also use a Minigun, which fires three times faster than a Machine gun. But the damage per second goes down.

The fact that you can put different bombs on this plane makes it one of the best weapons in GTA Online. These things are:

Explosive bombs do the same amount of damage at the edge of the blast radius as they do in the middle. When incendiary bombs hit their targets, they catch fire and take damage all the time. At the center of the blast, these bombs do a lot of damage, but the damage is less at the edges.

Tear gas is the same thing as a gas bomb. It hurts both NPCs and players, and its blast radius is more prominent. But it doesn’t hurt vehicles and only lasts about 25 seconds. In addition to the main explosion, cluster bombs make a lot of smaller ones. These make it possible to do more damage to a single target.

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

This plane can take off and land vertically (called “VTOL”), so it doesn’t need a runway. It can move quickly and doesn’t need a runway, so it’s an excellent vehicle for getting away.

The Tula has a system to protect itself from homing missiles. It can defend against an incoming missile in three ways. The Chaff countermeasure will stop the homing missiles’ lock-on system from working for 5 seconds. This can be used 10 times, with a 5 Second break between each use.

Flare will get in the way of the missile, and the missile will go after the Flare instead of the vehicle.
Smoke countermeasures will throw off the enemy pilot. This doesn’t have any cooldown. But it doesn’t work as well as the other two ways.

The Tula isn’t the best choice regarding being resistant to explosions, but it’s alright too. It can survive up to two Homing missiles, but the third one will destroy it. On the other hand, only one RPG can hurt it. The plane that can carry weapons is speedy. It can go up to 150 mph and has a “Rocket Boost,” which makes it great at speeding up.

13

Turreted Limo

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

This Limo has a Machine gun that sticks out of the top of the car. The Machine gun can fire quickly, which makes it very useful against vehicles or players with little armor. But it does less damage than some other cars on the list. Heavily armored vehicles are hard to destroy with the machine gun because it takes so long.

You can also switch between the turret and the car. Returning to the car after being shot at will help you regain your health. This is a valuable feature since the turret is out in the open. Even though the car is a work of art and most car fans dream, it can’t withstand many explosions. It only takes two RPGs or Homing missiles to destroy the car. But the windows are bulletproof.

The Limo can go as fast as 89 mph, which isn’t the fastest on the list, but it is still something to consider. This car doesn’t handle or stop well, so that it won’t work as a getaway car.

14

Pyro

Pin

The Machine Gun and Missiles are the two weapons that come with the Buckingham Pyro. The Machine gun can shoot up to 675 feet away and has a slower rate of fire than others. The machine gun is an excellent weapon against enemies in the air. Still, it will be hard to use against enemies on the ground.

The missiles also have a feature that lets them lock on a target. This is great because it doesn’t have a cooldown or a limited number of shots. But the tracking could be better, and the missiles can only move for about five seconds.

Pyro’s countermeasures against homing missiles are an excellent way to defend against them. It does this 3 ways:

  • The Chaff countermeasure will stop the homing missiles’ lock-on system from working for 5 seconds. This can be used ten times, with a five-second break between each use.
  • Flare will get in the way of the missile, and the missile will go after the Flare instead of the vehicle.
  • Smoke countermeasures will throw off the enemy pilot. This doesn’t have any cooldown. But it doesn’t work as well as the other two ways.
Pin

It’s important to know that the Pyro, with its top speed of 222mph, is the fastest weaponized vehicle in GTA Online. You won’t have to worry about anything if you have one of these bad boys.
This car is also one of the best for speed and handling. Because of this, the Pyro is one of the best vehicles with weapons in GTA Online.

The Pyro is just as challenging as an average jet. It takes 3 Homing missiles or 1 RPG to destroy this vehicle. But because of how fast and agile this jet is, the homing missiles have almost no chance of hitting it.

15

Deluxo

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

Deluxo has two weapons: Machine Guns and Missiles that go straight to their target. The machine gun is like the Ruiner 2000s, which does good damage to players and vehicles with weak armor. It wouldn’t be the best choice against vehicles with a lot of armor.

On the other hand, Deluxo has two launchers that can fire homing missiles. This is very good at tracking and does a lot of damage to all kinds of targets. The only problem is that it only has 30 missiles.

The fact that Deluxo can switch to Hover mode makes it stand out. This makes lifting the vehicle off the ground possible, making it easier to travel on rough or rugged terrain. Aside from that, it can spin or turn without needing any space because it can hover.

Pin

The Hover mode allows the Deluxo to move over water without sinking. This is an excellent feature for a car that can go anywhere. But if the player gets out of Deluxo while it is above water, it will sink and be destroyed. Surprisingly, the vehicle moves more slowly in Hover mode than in car mode. In hover mode, it can only go 80 mph.

Since it only takes one Homing missile or RPG to destroy the Deluxo, it won’t be considered the most vital vehicle. Since the windows aren’t bulletproof, you may be safe from strong players. In car mode, the Deluxo can go as fast as 127 mph, and in Hover mode, it can go as fast as 80 mph. But its handling is excellent, even though the brakes could use some work.

16

TM-02 Khanjali

Pin

The Khanjali Tank is a powerhouse with many weapons that can do much damage. This includes the Tank Cannon, the Railgun Cannon, the Machine Gun, the Grenade Launcher, and the Proximity Mines.

Tank Cannon is the default tank gun, and it makes a small explosion when it hits something. Since it does more damage, the Railgun Cannon is a much better weapon. To put this on the vehicle, you will need to upgrade it. The Railgun has almost twice the range of the tank cannon. But it fires a little slower.

Two Grenade Launchers can be put on the TankTank and fired by people in the back. This works excellently against vehicles with a lot of armor. It also has an auto-targeting feature that makes it much easier to use the grenade launcher.

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

You can also add proximity mines to the Khanjali tank. They are much stronger than the mines you hold in your hands, but you can only have five of them going at once.

This heavily armored vehicle is very resistant to explosives because it can survive 8 Homing Missiles or 8 RPG shots. It can also take four shots from a tank’s Cannon, making it a solid defensive vehicle. The TankTank is bulletproof because it has no windows.

TM-02 Khanjali can go as fast as 42mph. This isn’t a car you can use to escape; it’s more of a “stand your ground and fight” car. Acceleration could be better, and reaching a reasonable speed takes a while.

17

Stromberg

Pin

The Stromberg has three different kinds of weapons: torpedoes, missiles, and machine guns. The front of the car has two machine guns that are more powerful than the machine gun in the car. It is strong against vehicles with little armor and can destroy them in less than 5 seconds.

Missiles are a much stronger choice. Even though they have a shorter lock-on range, they are worth it because they do good damage. But they can only hold 30 missiles, and if you play aggressively, you might use less.

The Torpedo Launcher can only be used underwater, but it can lock on to targets on land. Even though it only fires once every 1.5 seconds, it can hit targets on the ground or low in the air and is hard to hit underwater.

Pin

The Stromberg is an amphibious car which works well on land and water. This makes it very useful and different from most other cars. It might be one of the best cars with weapons in GTA Online.

The Stromberg has excellent armor and can handle a lot of explosives. After 6 Homing Missiles or 2 RPG shots, it will still work. The windows aren’t bulletproof, but no windows are in the back so that no one can shoot at you from behind.

This car can go as fast as 113 miles per hour. Switching from submarine mode to car mode will take about three seconds and back again. So, it is a very useful vehicle for getting away from trouble.

18

Avenger

Pin

Because it has so many weapons, Avenger is one of the best armed vehicles in GTA Online. It has a Cannon option with a single cannon at the front. It can turn in a wide arc to shoot in any direction in front of the vehicle.

The Avenger can get a second explosive cannon, which makes it a dangerous force. They have a long range and a high fire rate, making it easy to shoot down enemy planes.
The vehicle can carry four different kinds of bombs, which are:

  • Explosive bombs do the same amount of damage at the edge of the blast radius as they do in the middle.
  • When incendiary bombs hit their targets, they catch fire and take damage all the time. At the center of the blast, these bombs do a lot of damage, but the damage is less at the edges.
  • Tear gas is the same thing as a gas bomb. It hurts both NPCs and players, and its blast radius is bigger. But it doesn’t hurt vehicles and only lasts about 25 seconds.
  • In addition to the main explosion, cluster bombs make a lot of smaller ones. These make it possible to do more damage to a single target.
  • Abilities
  • Avenger has an autopilot feature that players have found to be very helpful. With this ability, the driver can stop moving and take control of the turret to kill enemies. Since the Avenger can take off and land vertically, it doesn’t need a runway.
Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

It also has many defensive features that help it avoid homing missiles. These things are:

  • The Chaff throws off the missile’s targeting system, making it impossible for it to lock on to your vehicle. This will only work ten times and last for 5 seconds. It also has a 5-second cooldown time.
  • The Flare takes the homing missiles’ attention away from the vehicle. It makes them follow the Flare instead of the vehicle.
  • By leaving a trail of Smoke behind our vehicle, the Smoke will throw off the enemy pilot. This doesn’t have any cooldown. But it doesn’t work as well as the other two ways.

Surprisingly, the Avenger is even better than most tanks at avoiding explosions. This vehicle is so well-protected that it can easily withstand 23 Homing missiles or about 8 RPG shots. It can also take four shots from a tank cannon.

Avenger is an excellent vehicle for defense, and when you have them, you feel very safe. It also has an amazing top speed of 178mph, making it the perfect all-around car. The vehicle is hard to control, but its speed and armor make up for it.

It is one of the best-weaponized vehicles in GTA Online because it has autopilot, great weapon options, resistance to explosions, and a fast speed.

19

Weaponized Tampa

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

The armed Tampa has several places to shoot from, making it a great vehicle. Some are missiles, Fixed Miniguns, Dual Miniguns, and Rear Mortar. When you upgrade the vehicle, you’ll get two missile launchers that don’t lock on to specific targets. The missiles do a lot of damage and can travel a fair distance. But there is only enough ammunition for 20 missiles.

Tampa also has a Minigun in the front that does much damage and fires at a reasonable rate. It does much more damage than other vehicles’ Miniguns, but the fixed turret makes it hard to use. On top of that, you can add two Minigun turrets to the vehicle if you want to. This will let you shoot in all directions and at a good height. But this gun will take a lot of work to hit targets in the air.

You should definitely use the Rear Mortars if someone is following you. It’s a weapon that explodes and does a lot of damage to things behind the vehicle. It’s hard to aim, and the distance depends on how long you hold down the button.

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

There are only 20 rounds for the rear mortar. You can also put Proximity Mines on the armed Tampa, which are much stronger than the ones you hold in your hands. But they can only have five mines working at the same time.

The Weaponized Tampa might look like it has a lot of armor, but it doesn’t. This vehicle has an average defense and only takes one RPG or Homing missile to destroy. Also, the windows aren’t bulletproof.
It can go as fast as 112mph, which is good for a car with weapons. This car’s acceleration is surprisingly good, and some may think it’s great for getting away.

20

RO-86 Alkonost

Pin

The RO-86 Alkonost is a work of art in terms of how it looks and fights. It can carry different kinds of bombs for hitting things on the ground. These things are:

  • If the target is in the blast radius, explosive bombs do a lot of damage.
  • Incendiary bombs light the target on fire and keep doing damage even after they explode.
  • Tear gas is what gas bombs do to players and NPCs. But they don’t hurt vehicles in any way. It’s about 25 seconds long.
  • Cluster bombs explode when they hit the ground, sending out smaller bombs that also explode. So, there are smaller explosions after the big one, which add to the overall effect.

RO-86 Alkonost has a lot of ways to protect itself from homing missiles that are coming at it. These things are:

  • The Chaff stops the missiles from locking on your vehicle by messing up their targeting systems. This will only work ten times and last for 5 seconds. It also has a five-second cooldown time.
  • The Flare takes the homing missiles’ attention away from the vehicle. It makes them follow the Flare instead of the vehicle.
  • By leaving a trail of Smoke behind our vehicle, the Smoke will throw off the enemy pilot. This doesn’t have any cooldown. But it doesn’t work as well as the other two ways.
  • One problem with this vehicle is that you need a runway to take off or land.
Pin

Like most planes, this one doesn’t have much protection against explosives. It only takes one RPG shot to destroy it. But it can take about three Homing missiles before it’s no longer helpful. It is not bulletproof, but there are no windows in the back.

RO-86 can go as fast as 168 mph, which is a high speed. But other vehicles on this list are faster and have better protection than RO-86. It’s important to remember that this car needs to handle better; making sharp turns with it is annoying.

21

Rhino Tank

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

This is the game’s most famous Tank, and for good reason. This has a very powerful cannon turret that can destroy many small vehicles with just one shot. But this turret can only move in a small area and is Tank’s only weapon. This 60-ton vehicle can quickly destroy cars by simply pressing down on them. Other than that, the Rhino tanks don’t have a lot of different weapons.

The powerhouse vehicle is great against explosive weapons and is unbeatable against small guns. The Rhino Tank can stop up to four Homing missiles or four RPG shots. But it only takes two tank cannon shots to destroy it.

It can go as fast as 40mph. Players use a trick to quickly get to that top speed: they turn the Tank’s Cannon toward the back and keep firing it. This will cause the Tank to move forward because of the recoil.

This is one of the oldest tanks in the game. It was also in GTA San Andreas, GTA Vice City, GTA Auto III, GTA Vice City Stories, and GTA Liberty City Stories.

NightShark

Pin

Nightshark is considered to be one of the best-weaponized vehicles in GTA Online for several reasons. But it does not have any weapons that could kill people.

Nightshark only has four Machine guns that shoot forward. These have a lot of firepowers and can easily destroy vehicles or players with weak armor. The Machine Gun is terrible and needs to work better against heavily armored vehicles.

It is considered one of the best-weaponized vehicles in GTA Online because it has armor and moves quickly. This is a great vehicle to drive around in a GTA Online lobby since griefers won’t be able to do much to kill you while you’re in it.

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

The 4-ton vehicle can take a lot of damage before it finally breaks up. It takes an incredible 27 Homing missiles to kill it. You could also shoot it with an RPG nine times before it broke. The top speed of Nightshark is one of the best for a vehicle with a lot of armor.

It can reach 104 mph. So, this is the best thing to have in your garage if you want to feel safe from griefers or other annoying enemies. Also, the windows are bulletproof, so the only way for someone to kill you is with lots and lots of explosives. This is the vehicle that can handle explosives the best.

23

Hydra

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

Some say Hydra is one of the best in the game because of its weapons and fighting skills. It has two weapons: Rockets and Missiles that look for heat. Aside from that, it has some ways to stop missiles from returning to it.

Hydra can launch two unguided rockets simultaneously, each from a different jet side. When it hits, the rocket does a lot of damage and destroys almost every vehicle. The rocket has a long range and moves fast, which makes it hard to avoid.

Having heat-seeking missiles is a dangerous thing to do. They are like the Heat-seeking Rocket Launcher that you can hold in your hand. They lock on to the target, and their accuracy is outstanding. Even though it only does 1/3rd of the damage of a normal missile, the accuracy makes up for it.

Pin

This jet is made to fight and has white flares that can be used to get away from homing missiles. If you set off the white flares at the right time, they will attract the missile, then start following them. But using the flares at the wrong time might only sometimes work.

Most people like Hydra because of its strength, not because of how fast and agile it is. It only takes two Homing missiles or a single RPG to destroy the Hydra. This is easier to say than to do since the Hydra is a fast jet that can easily change directions and avoid missiles. It can go as fast as 210 mph and handles and speeds up very well. The boosters help the brake system, stopping the car from going forward or backward.

It needs a runway to take off and land, but once it’s in the air, it’s almost impossible to stop. It has one of the best speeds in the game and is a force you want to avoid messing with. This makes it one of the best-weaponized vehicles in GTA Online.

24

Half-Track

Pin

The passenger controls the Half-track’s single turret at the back of the vehicle. This turret can turn all the way around, giving us two options for weapons. The best thing about this vehicle is that its guns do 1.5 times as much damage as the guns on other vehicles.

The .50 caliber Dual Machine Gun is the default choice. It has a high rate of fire and works well against players or vehicles with low armor. But there are better choices than the Machine Gun against other heavily armored vehicles.

The Quad Autocannon is the second choice for a weapon. This is better than the Dual Machine Gun because it fires faster. But because it has a smaller elevation angle, it might not be the best choice at close ranges.

Also, the Half-track can have Proximity Mines, which are stronger than the handheld mines, added to it. But you can only have five active mines. Still, they are worth having.

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

Small gunfire and sometimes small bombs don’t hurt the Half-track much. It takes an incredible 27 Homing missiles to destroy this vehicle finally. You could also use nine RPGs to do the same thing.
With 27 Homing missiles, it will take a huge amount of time and accuracy to hit a vehicle.

Your enemy will always tire of shooting at you, but your vehicle will still work fine. This car has one of the best weapons in GTA Online because it has a strong defense.

On the other hand, Half-track’s only downside is that it can only go as fast as 58mph. It’s not the best vehicle for getting away because it’s more of a “stand your ground and fight” truck.

25

Oppressor Mk II

Pin

The Oppressor is a very important vehicle in GTA Online for good and bad reasons. Most people agree that this is one of GTA Online’s best vehicles with weapons. So, this is the vehicle that griefers choose most often, which is fair.

Weapons like the Machine Gun, Explosive MG, and Homing Missiles on the Oppressor Mk II are solid and accurate. The Machine gun is the weakest of the three, even though it has a high rate of fire and works well against vehicles with little armor. It’s hard to use in the air, though, and there are better choices against heavily armored vehicles.

The second option is the Explosive MG, which has a short range and ammunition that explodes. It’s a good choice because it does a lot of damage to both vehicles and players. The Homing Missile Launcher is the best weapon for the Oppressor Mk II. Even though they can only hold 20 missiles, they are accurate and have one of the best lock-on systems in the game.

The people who made this vehicle did their best to make it have a reasonable amount of power. They also added a 15-ms delay to the lock-on feature. But this car is still the most dangerous, and everyone in the lobby fears it.

The first and most important thing about this vehicle is that it can fly around the map. There is no need for a runway; hover and move to places other vehicles can’t go. The rocket booster in the back is perfect for speeding up.

Pin

There are many ways to stop enemy-homing missiles from hitting the vehicle, making it hard to hit. These things are:

  • The Chaff throws off the homing missile’s targeting system, making it impossible for it to lock on to your vehicle. This will only work five times and last for 5 seconds. It also has a 20-second cooldown time.
  • The Flare takes the homing missiles’ attention away from the vehicle. It makes them follow the Flare instead of the vehicle. You can only use it 10 times, and then you have to wait 10 seconds before you can use it again.
  • By leaving a trail of Smoke behind your vehicle, the Smoke will throw off the enemy pilot. This doesn’t have any cooldown.

It might be the perfect vehicle if the Oppressor was alright at resisting explosions. It can only hold up against one RPG or Homing Missile before it gets destroyed. But this vehicle is quick and moves around a lot, making it hard to hit.

This car can go as fast as 127mph. And because it handles and speeds up so well, this car is a real pain to keep up with. Thanks to the rocket booster, the speed is one of the best in the game. This is the best-weaponized vehicle in GTA Online, whether you want to cause trouble or have fun. Since you can go wherever you want and don’t have to worry about other players in the lobby.

The Insurgent Pick-up Custom

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

The Insurgent Pickup Custom car is one of the best-armed ones in GTA Online. It has enough weapons to put down any rebellion in your kingdom. Like its basic version, it has a Machine Gun that can fire at 410 RPM and deal 150 damage per projectile.

It also has a Rapid Fire Minigun with a.50 caliber round even though it does 60% less damage to projectiles than the machine gun, the Minigun fires three times as fast as the machine gun, at 1200 RPM.

You can also kill your enemies with your custom Insurgent Pickup by putting Proximity Mines in different places where you want them. But be smart about how you use them because you only have five. Also, be careful because new players often use them to destroy their vehicles.

Pin

The Insurgent Custom is the best choice for fighting against planes because it can move in any direction and even pull an Anti-Aircraft Trailer.

It is primarily a Light Armored Personal Vehicle. In GTA Online, it can take up to 27 homing missiles or 14 RPGs before it is destroyed. It can also stand up to a lot of gunfire.

The only bad thing is that it has big, non-bulletproof windows. Players can upgrade the armor plating to one of three levels to reduce the hit area on the windows.

In GTA Online, the Insurgent Pickup can go up to 99.25 mph, 159.73 km/h, after all the modifications. Because of all these things, it is one of the best weapons in GTA Online.

27

Kosatka

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

In GTA Online, the nuclear-powered submarine is vital to the Cayo Perico heist. Because of this, it is one of the best and most essential investments in GTA Online. It has three important weapons on board for the game:

  • Torpedoes: Once locked on to a target, a submarine can fire a torpedo every second and even follow its target outside the water. But it can only lock onto other vehicles that are on the water. Also, ensure you are close to your target to ensure the lock-on works.
  • Periscope Missile Launcher: One of the best things about a Kosatka is that once it locks on to a target, it can fire a missile every second. Interestingly, you can’t use them on submersibles because the missiles go off when they touch the water. So, they work well outside of water to catch flying targets.
  • The manual lock-on system takes one second to lock onto a target and another 1.5 seconds before it can lock onto another target because it can move around quickly and shoot at the plane above its head.
  • Guided Missile System: The Kosatka is one of the best Weaponized Vehicles in GTA Online because it has this unique feature. After launching their missiles from the submarine, players can use a screen to control their missiles like an airplane. Even though they move slowly, the missiles can travel up to 4 km before they explode.
  • But a one-minute gap between each missile could be a pain. In GTA Online, the blast radius is also average, and it can’t destroy heavily armed and armored vehicles. The guided missiles only work outside of water, just like the Periscope Missile Launcher.
Pin

It doesn’t have good armor; anyone can destroy it by firing twelve homing missiles. Also, because it’s slow and has a big, bulky frame, it’s an easy target for any GTA Online aircraft or waterborne weaponized vehicles.

Even so, the fact that it can hide underwater makes it a safer choice, even though it has a lot of bad points. Its enemies can only find it under the water if they are close enough to see it or if their submarines have a sonar system. Due to its size, it can only go 66.79 km/h (41.50 mph) after all the upgrades in GTA Online.

FH-1 Hunter

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

It comes with many weapons for both the pilot and the gunner sitting behind him. Information about them is below:

  • On the nose of the plane, there is a gun for the gunner to use. This mounted gun can be used as either a Machine Gun or a Cannon because it can be aimed very well and moved 90 degrees on each side.
  • With moderate firepower, a. 50-caliber Machine Gun can destroy any unarmed vehicle in seconds. It is precisely the same as the one in Insurgent Pickup Custom.
  • The gun on the chin can also be set up as a cannon with too much power. Even though the cannon fires slowly, its increased damage can help you quickly destroy many targets.
  • Players can also use Homing Missiles in this plane to destroy any target they want without reloading and with a better tracking system.
  • In the same way, players can use the pilot to destroy land-based targets with Barrage Missiles quickly. The plane is interesting because it can fire at least seven missiles in two seconds. But you must wait four seconds between each shot before reloading.

In addition to these weapons, this car, one of the best-armed in GTA Online, has four different kinds of bombs that can destroy enemies. These are the four kinds of bombs:

  • The first one is the bomb that goes off. What makes these bombs unique is that they do the same amount of damage no matter how far away they explode. For example, if you are caught in an explosion, it doesn’t matter if you are on the edge or in the middle.
  • The Incendiary Bomb is the second choice. It explodes and leaves a burning fire behind, like a Molotov cocktail. Unlike explosive bombs, the edges of incendiary bombs do less damage.
  • Gas bombs do more damage over a wider area and last about 25 seconds. But, unlike the other bombs, gas bombs release a poisonous gas that has the same effect as tear gas.
  • For any armored target, the best choice is a cluster bomb with a smaller area of effect and more damage.
Pin

In GTA Online, the FH-1 Hunter has the following countermeasures in addition to its compatible armor and monstrous weapon system:

  • The Chaff countermeasure is one of the best ways for the Hunter to fight back. It tricks the enemies’ targeting systems so they can’t aim at you for about five seconds. But, since you can only use it ten times, you should only use it when you have to.
  • It’s one of the best-weaponized vehicles in GTA Online because of how well it can defend itself. For example, the Flare Countermeasure will send out a lot of flares so that the homing missiles will follow them instead of you. But be careful, because you can only use it 20 times.
  • The last countermeasure is the smoke countermeasure, which sends out Smoke to fool enemy pilots. You can use it in the game as many times as you want. But it could be better than the other abilities we’ve talked about.

Before they destroy the Hunter, homing missiles can hit it three times. In the same way, it will take 18 shots from a sniper to hurt it. Also, in the game, it takes six shots from a heavy sniper MKII to destroy it. But watch out for the empty spaces between windows because people can shoot from there.

One of the things that makes it one of the best weapons in GTA Online is how fast it is. After getting all the upgrades it needs, it can go as fast as 141.50 mph, or 227.72 km/h.

29

LF-22 Starling

Pin

A player can find a machine gun on each wing of the plane. With a slow firing rate made up for by high damage per shot and a shooting range of 675 feet, these machine guns are absolute monsters for destroying your targets.

Even though the plane doesn’t have a missile launcher, players can add one in Los Santos Customs. Starling’s missile launcher is handy because it takes little time to reload. The missiles, on the other hand, could be better at following targets. Aside from these weapons, it also has three types of bombs, just like its sister ship, which we talked about above:

The bombs always did a lot of damage in all the areas they hit. Incendiary bombs are like Molotov cocktails because they set fire to the enemies or the area they affect. But these bombs do different amounts of damage in all the areas they hit.

The fireworks are better in the middle than on the sides. Gas bombs have the same effect on people as tear gas: they make them sick. They can be used over and over again without having to reload, and the effect of each bomb lasts about 25 seconds.

The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5Pin

Like the vehicle we just talked about, Starling is one of the best-weaponized vehicles in GTA Online because it can do the following:

  • The Chaff countermeasure makes it hard for enemies to lock on for five seconds. This lets players stay out of their enemies’ range. Like the other countermeasure, this one can only be used ten times, with a five-second break between each one.
  • Use the Flare countermeasure to confuse enemy missiles coming at you by sending out a lot of flares into the air. Like its other version, you can only use it twenty times; after each use, you have to wait three seconds.
  • With the smoke countermeasure, players can protect themselves from an enemy chasing them by putting out Smoke to confuse and lose the enemy. In the game, players can use it whenever and as often as they want.

It can take two direct hits from enemy explosives. The third explosive hit will destroy the Starling in GTA Online. It can take five shots from the heavy sniper MKII and eighteen shots from other heavy snipers in the game, just like its other version.

After all the upgrades in GTA Online, it can go as fast as 187.75 mph (or 302.15 km/h). Starling is one of the best jets and one of the fastest weapons-equipped vehicles in GTA Online.

JoBuilt P-996 LAZER

Pin
The Best Mounted Vehicles in GTA 5

In GTA Online, LAZER has two Cannons that are way too strong. The cannons are so strong that they can destroy regular armored targets with just one shot. The consistent firepower of these cannons can also destroy targets with a lot of armor, like the Avenger or the Insurgent Pickup custom. Also, it can shoot about 600 feet away, which isn’t too far.

Like the other items on our list, the LAZER has missiles to reach their targets. But players can turn off the missiles’ tracking feature and use them as projectiles that don’t go anywhere. In the same way, these missiles only stay in the air for ten seconds before they blow up. So, be smart about how you use them.

You can fire two missiles from the launcher before reloading it. After the fire, there will be a four-second cooldown, during which the launcher will be reloaded.

Pin

Like the other armed vehicles on our list, LAZER has reliable armor. Here are a few things about the LAZER:

  • LAZER can take two homing missiles without any upgrades. In GTA Online, the third missile attack will destroy it.
  • LAZER can take a lot of damage from explosive rounds from a heavy sniper MKII before it breaks. Also, one shot from a tank cannon or an Anti-Aircraft Trailer can bring it down from the air.
  • The plane is not vital, though, from the back. So, if an explosion happens at the back of the vehicle while it is in the air, it will rip the backside open. You will lose some of the controls on the control board, and it will be harder to keep the plane flying straight.

Before any upgrades, LAZER’s tested top speed in GTA Online is 195 mph (313.82 km/h). If you upgrade it, you can make it go 204.18 mph (328.60 km/h), making it one of GTA Online’s fastest weaponized vehicles.

Fire Truck

Pin

The Fire Truck is among the trustworthy firefighters who try to stop the dangers hiding in Los Santos. Well, “found” means “stolen” when someone says it. Even though the Fire Truck doesn’t have missiles, machine gun turrets, or heat-seeking rockets, it does have something more interesting: a water cannon.

Players can use the Fire Truck’s water cannon to harass and disarm enemies by spraying them over and over until they stay on the ground. In Grand Theft Auto 5, the Fire Truck is a lot of fun to play with, even though you can’t store it.

If a player has ever wanted to know what James Bond’s life would be like, the JB 700W is for them. This car is right out of the well-known British spy series. It is based on the real-life Aston Martin DB5, which was James Bond’s car, and has a lot in common with it.

The JB 700W can be customized with all kinds of mounted weapons, like machine guns at the headlights and spikes that can be shot out onto the road to puncture the tires of the competition. There are also proximity mines that can help blow up vehicles on the road that are chasing the enemy.

Players will be able to buy this deadly aerial vehicle for $2,000,000. Players can take advantage of the Buzzard Attack Chopper by asking Pegasus to bring it to any nearby helipad. In Grand Theft Auto 5, you can find the Buzzard Attack Copter at Fort Zancudo or the NOOSE Headquarters on Sustancia Road.

The Buzzard Attack Chopper is excellent at avoiding missiles that lock on, and it also has a lot of rockets that can be fired and used as a lock-on target.
