If you want to roam around the unforgiving streets of Las Santos in a car with reliable performance, more than adequate armor protection, and, obviously, style, then the Omnis e-GT is the car for you.

A great armored vehicle you should have your eyes on getting early in the game is the Nightshark. It’s probably going to be your best choice withstanding high explosive damage from aggravating griefers while you’re busy hustling.

The Terrorbyte

Terrorbyte review

Price: GTA$ 1,375,000 – GTA$ 3,459,500

The Terrorbyte is a unique command and operations center. The vehicle itself is an absolute juggernaut that’ll greatly protect you from unwanted attention, but what’s really important is how well it can assist you in making money.

The latest addition of an armored beast in the GTA Online universe is the Brickade 6x6, as part of the Los Santos Drug Wars DLC. This bad boy comes equipped with an Acid Lab, which is one of the best new passive businesses in the game, conveniently stored in the back of its trailer. 

But wait, there's more! You can even install a custom bumper in front of it to bulldoze your way through any obstacle that gets in your way. Who needs traffic laws when you have the Brickade 6x6?

The MOC Cab

MOC review

MOC Price: GTA$ 1,225,000 – GTA$ 2,790,000

Cab Price: GTA$ 1,225,000

Want a vehicle that's an unstoppable force? Look no further than the Mobile Operations Center (MOC). As a must-have utility vehicle in Los Santos, owning the MOC is the ultimate status symbol for any Kingpin. 

It's made up of two parts: the trailer and the cab. The upgraded MOC Trailer includes a Vehicle and Weapon Workshop and can launch MOC missions with crew on board. It also has turrets for protection against intruders.

But the real power move is when you detach the trailer and unleash the cab, which is an incredibly powerful vehicle in its own right.

Here’s why you should get it:

  • It takes 24 RPGs or 69 Homing Missiles to blow up the cab.
  • For a truck, it’s very fast and maneuvers effortlessly.
  • The MOC Trailer’s turrets can cause havoc on the streets.
