Best PvP vehicles in GTA Online
Dominate anyone who dares to challenge you

"Prepare to get your ass whooped, bro!"

As of today, there are 700+ vehicles in GTA Online. By filtering this massive pool of vehicles to choose the best ones for PvP, it all comes down to performance and offensive/defensive capabilities.

Though a highly subjective matter, it has been proven over time that players in GTA Online prefer vehicles that are fast and agile when it comes to competing with their rivals.

This article showcases the 10 best vehicles in GTA Online that are going to help you establish bragging rights and prove a worthy companion against teaching griefers a lesson. 


10. Mobile Operations Center


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

If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s an absolute juggernaut, then the Mobile Operations Center (MOC) is your answer. The MOC is one of those must-have utility vehicles that’s going to uplift your status as a certified Kingpin in Los Santos.

The MOC consists of two parts: the trailer and the cab, but the real deal of the MOC is its cab. Once you detach the trailer, you will have a severely powerful vehicle at your disposal. What makes it so powerful you may ask? Well, the ability to withstand 65 rockets and 22 RPGs should clarify that doubt of yours.

In a nutshell, you should definitely own the MOC because:

  • Its cab is surprisingly fast.
  • The cab is the most armored vehicle in GTA Online.
  • Its trailer’s turrets can cause a disaster on the streets.
  • The trailer can house a Weapon and Vehicle Workshop once fully upgraded.

9. Insurgent Pick Up Custom

The Insurgent Pick-Up Custom

Standard Price: GTA$ 1,795,000

Trade Price: GTA$ 1,350,000 (By completing the Humane Labs Finale)

Custom Conversion Price: GTA$ 202,500 (via MOC or Avenger Workshop)

Without a doubt, the most complete weaponized vehicle to consider would be the Insurgent Pick-Up Custom. Why is that so you may ask? Well, the Insurgent Pick-Up Custom is all that you’re going to need for establishing dominance with your squad on board and destroying anything that comes in your way in an unforgiving fashion.

The insurgent Pick-Up Custom comes with a standard Machine Gun that can be swapped for a powerful, and much better, Minigun. Additionally, the vehicle has the option to be equipped with proximity mines. However, the windows are not bulletproof.

The Insurgent Pick-Up Custom can also tow an Anti-Aircraft Trailer, making it the complete package for pulverizing your enemies bothering you from both the ground and the sky.

Still not convinced? Well, here are some more reasons why you should be:

  • The Insurgent Pick-Up Custom is reasonably fast and agile, and you should have no worries taking it off-road as well.
  • The Insurgent Pick-Up Custom has the capacity to carry around 10 of your mates in total, including the one operating the Anti-Aircraft Trailer in the back.
  • It has an outrageously strong armor. It can take 9 RPGs and a whopping 27 Homing Launcher missiles (14 without the driver inside). You heard that right, it’s going to take a while for your adversary to take you down.

8. B-11 Strikeforce

The Strikeforce

Price: GTA$ 3,800,000

It is hard to ignore the detailed resemblance of the B-11 Strikeforce to the A-10 Thunderbolt II Warthog; a plane that holds a high status among aviation geeks.

In terms of performance, the in-game version is no different than its real-life counterpart. It’s fast, agile, and equipped with an abundance of lethal weaponry.

The plane comes with Explosive MG, Homing Missiles, a Bombing Bay - you name it. On top of all that, it has the option to be equipped with every ground target’s worst nightmare: Barrage Missiles!

The countermeasures are pretty standard. The B-11 Strikeforce comes with the usual Chaff, Flares, and Smoke.

What makes the B-11 Strikeforce standout in this list is:

  • Its profusion of weapon options to annihilate enemies.
  • The strongest armor of any fighter jet in the game. It can withstand: 5 Homing Missiles, 5 conventional explosives, and 1 shot from an RPG.
  • An eye-catching design that’ll surely force other players to appreciate your purchase.
  • The most balanced fighter jet, in general.

7. LF-22 Starling

The Starling

Standard Price: GTA$ 3,657,500

Trade Price: GTA$ 2,750,000 (By completing 15 Air Freight Cargo source missions)

The LF-22 Starling’s puny size and unthreatening looks are ever so deceiving to say the least, but the potential the Starling holds is beyond anyone’s first guess.

Its flight dynamics can be considered quite unusual when compared to every other plane in the game. The Starling sure takes a while to get used to, as it somewhat glides when you use it without the boost. By the time you get a hold of its handling, it’d definitely start to grow on you.

The Starling comes with a standard Machine gun, and it can be further equipped with Homing Missiles and Bombs. The usual countermeasures can also be fitted.  

The combination of Starling’s extremely slow speed and the option to equip a Rocket Boost, added with the plane’s outmaneuvering capabilities, just makes it an outright dogfighter.

Here’s why:

  • The Starling’s compact size and slow speed makes it extremely easy to land anywhere on the map.
  • Its slow speed also gifts the plane the agility to cut tight corners and escape enemy’s line of sight with ease while flying. In PvP situations, this ability lets the Starling loop around an enemy and start tailing them instead.
  • The Rocket Boost thrusts the plane’s acceleration tremendously and allows it to outperform its rivals once you get used to the control mechanics.

6. Oppressor Mk II

The Oppressor Mk II

Standard Price: GTA$ 3,890,250

Trade Price: GTA$ 2,925,000 (By completing 5 Terrorbyte client jobs)

Love it or hate it, the Oppressor Mk II single handedly twisted the dynamics of going about your day in GTA Online, in a good way for some, and in a bad way for many. An iteration of the hover bike from the movie Looper, the Oppressor Mk II is the most popular choice among griefers and tryhards. Nonetheless, if used with a pinch of sense and wisdom, it’s actually one of the best PvP vehicles to own.

One point to keep in mind is that you need to first own a nightclub and then a Terrorbyte before you can get your hands on the Oppressor Mk-II.

The Oppressor Mk II comes with Machine Guns by default which can be swapped for either an Explosive Machine Gun or Homing Missiles. The Homing Missiles are definitely the preferred choice of weaponry to have, but keep in mind that their accuracy got nerfed after the 1.61 update. Hence, making it easier to dodge others using them as well.

Standard countermeasures of Flare, Chaff, and Smoke can also be installed.

Aside from the flying and hovering abilities of the Oppressor Mk II, some strong reasons that justify its purchase are:

  • Fast and quick form of transportation. The Oppressor Mk II’s small size makes it rapidly evade the enemy's line of sight.
  • It can be spawned right next to you, within seconds, like any personal ground vehicle.
  • In PvP fights, the Oppressor Mk II has the advantage to be landed on any rooftop, giving you a chance to defend yourself at higher ground. 
  • Easy to take-off, maneuver, and land. It can be landed anywhere across the map without you having to clench your toes.

5. P-996 Lazer

The Lazer

Price: GTA$ 6,500,000

The sharp nose and the long canopy design of the P-996 Lazer unmistakably resembles that of the F-16 Fighting Falcon. The Lazer’s overall design is probably the most accurate of what you would think of a modern fighter jet. 

The Lazer is equipped with Cannons and Homing Missiles by default with no option for countermeasures, and that’s about it.

The Lazer is arguably the most popular choice for PvP battles. A strong reason for that is it’s readily available from Fort Zancudo Airbase.

Its insane acceleration, destructive Cannons, and fast maneuverability allows anyone to finesse its target. 

The Lazer can be your preferred fighter jet because:

  • Its Cannons can cause devastation on the ground and easily take down other jets once you properly align your aim.
  • Its short take-off speed and ability to climb altitude with no resistance can allow you to escape hostility.
  • Once gotten the hang of its controls, the Lazer becomes borderline God-like.

4. TM-02 Khanjali

The Khanjali

Standard Price: GTA$ 3,850,350

Trade Price: GTA$ 2,895,000 (By completing the Khanjali Setup mission in the Doomsday Heist as the heist leader)

If outright obliterating your enemies and sending shivers down their spines is what you’re hunting for, then look no further than the TM-02 Khanjali. The Khanjali tank is nothing short of monstrosity coupled with sheer dominating capabilities.

The absolute abundance of ordnance on the Khanjali includes Tank Cannon (by default), Railgun Cannon (the preferred option), Machine Gun (operated by the front seat passenger), Grenade Launcher (operated by the rear passenger), and proximity mines.

The armor on the Khanjali is also quite impressive. Once fully upgraded, the tank can take up to 8 RPGs and Homing Launcher missiles.

If you kill your enemy once, then you can easily spawn trap them by quickly driving towards them and shooting just a single cannon. They’ll be more hesitant to face you head on and will start running around looking for cover instead. 

With its tempting looks, the Khanjali should be worth your consideration because:

  • It has fast speed and acceleration for a tank.
  • You can crush your rival’s vehicle on the road, head on.
  • The heaps of weapons on board allow you and your squad to be feared among anyone who dares to even look at you.

3. FH-1 Hunter

The Hunter

Standard Price: GTA$ 4,123,000

Trade Price: GTA$ 3,100,000 (By completing 42 Air Freight Cargo source missions)

The FH-1 Hunter is a must have aircraft in your hangar, as both its offensive and defensive strength makes it the deadliest helicopter in GTA Online. With its design reminiscent of the American attack helicopters from the ‘80s, the Hunter screams patriotism once it starts flying.

The Hunter’s handling is quite easy to get used to. The Hunter does feel slightly bloated at first, but once you fly it for a few minutes, there isn’t really much of a learning curve.

The Hunter boasts a vast array of weaponry. By default, it’s equipped with a Machine Gun that can be swapped for a powerful Cannon. Note that the co-pilot can also use the Machine Gun/Cannon. It can be equipped with both Homing and Barrage missiles at the same time. Moreover, there’s also room for a bombing bay and standard countermeasures.

The FH-1 Hunter is a great purchase because:

  • It’s incredibly fast and easy to maneuver.
  • Its armor can withstand 5 RPGs and 2 Homing Launcher missiles.
  • You can wreak havoc once you get a competent co-pilot.

2. Toreador

The Toreador

Price: GTA$ 3,660,000

If your concerns revolve around getting a weaponized vehicle that’s lethal, fast, sufficiently tolerable to attacks, and can dive in the shores of Los Santos like a seasoned surfer, then the Toreador has all your answers. Resembling the Lamborghini Marzal concept car, the Toreador is definitely a must have vehicle because of its outstanding controls and abilities.

The Toreador has an impressive Machine Gun, exceptional Homing Missiles, and hear this, Torpedoes that can even take down targets that are above and close to the water surface. Plus, the Toreador has a rocket boost that can be used underwater.

Still, the Toreador’s windows don’t offer any resistance.

All in all, what makes the Toreador a beast of a vehicle in the game is:

  • Its remarkably fast and agile maneuverability.
  • Its ability to be used as a submarine with an included sonar.
  • A rocket boost with a recharge time of just a second. This ability alone allows the Toreador to escape hostiles without having to struggle.
  • A decent armor for a small car. The Toreador can handle 1 hit from an RPG and up to 5 hits from a Homing Launcher.

1. Hydra

The Hydra

Standard Price: GTA$ 3,990,000

Trade Price: GTA$ 3,000,000 (By completing Humane Labs Raid – EMP)

The Hydra is the most powerful fighter jet in GTA Online, and it’s also the most advanced fighter jet in the game. It’s suggestively based on the British Aerospace Harrier II. 

It’s fitted with Cannons and Homing Missiles, but there are no options for countermeasures.

The Hydra is awfully fast, and its handling is very predictable. Because of this, the Hydra becomes a very fun fighter jet to fly. Additionally, it has the ability to VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing). Yes, you heard that right, the Hydra can take-off and land like a helicopter anywhere on the map. 

What makes the Hydra the best fighter jet in the game? Well:

  • Its VTOL function allows it to take-off and land without the need for a runway. Plus, it also lets the Hydra hover anywhere, making it extremely advantageous to brake mid-air.
  • The Cannons and Missiles on the Hydra are very deadly.
  • The agility and controls of the Hydra are extremely brisk and simple.
  • Its price tag is comparatively affordable.
