Dealing with enemies' vehicles is one of the most common things that you need to do in a GTA Online server. Griefers usually run around with the Nightshark or the Oppressor MK2 and try their best to ruin your day. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 10 best weapons to destroy vehicles in GTA Online 2023.

1. Heavy Sniper MKII

The heavy sniper is here to enforce the "One shot, one kill" mantra. It can kill most players in a single shot, cripple helicopters, cars... and more. Overall, the heavy sniper does huge damage and fires faster than the standard Sniper. It can even be upgraded to its MK2 form with an extra 200k.

Players can use explosive rounds to add even more firepower against unarmored vehicles and knock down human targets. It is effective against many types of aircraft and lightly armored vehicles. This weapon is perfect against opponents using Oppressor MK2. It is also effective in taking out the drivers of normal vehicles when equipped with Full Metal Jacket ammo.

2. Combat MG Mk II

The Combat MG Mk II slightly improves over the regular Combat MG in damage (from 45 to 47), with the same rate of fire. This makes it a devastating weapon against enemies and unarmored vehicles. The default magazine has a magazine capacity of 100 rounds which can be expanded to 200 rounds per box magazine.

It is best to fit the Combat MG MkII with Full Metal Jacket rounds, which improve damage over vehicles and can penetrate bullet-resistant windows. Unarmored vehicles and aircraft will quickly catch fire and get destroyed from sustained fire due to this weapon's increased capacity.

3. Compact Grenade Launcher

This is the most damaging small gun in the game - it has all the power of a Grenade Launcher inside the frame of a pistol. The Compact Grenade Launcher can even be used in drive-bys and motorcycles.

Players who are practiced with this weapon can blow up their targets while moving at an extremely high speed. However, players needs to be careful, as getting too close to the blast radius can destroy their own vehicle and kill them in the process.

4.  Sticky Bomb

Shooting people to death is not the only way to take out your enemies, it is just the easiest one. If you can aim a little bit, the Sticky Bomb is a great alternate item to spam around. You can also use this as a land mine or trap of sorts, as the bombs are really fragile.

Players can stick some of these on a durable car and hit the enemy car with it to create an explosion.

5. Homing Launcher

This is the only way you can effectively deal with enemies vehicles early on. You don't need to waste time aiming or judging trajectories when using this weapon - just point it at the target and let the missile lock-on. The Homing Launcher has an incredibly long range, being able to follow fighter jets for a very long distance, surpassing all missiles/rockets (including mounted rockets on vehicles).

The projectiles fired by the Homing Launcher are very fast and can easily chase down a P-996 LAZER in flight. The missiles can destroy or disable aircraft in only one hit, making them the best weapon to use against aircraft,

6. Heavy Revolver MK II

The Hawk & Little Heavy Revolver Mk II is a weapon featured in GTA Online as part of the Doomsday Heist update. It is one of the best pistols in the game, with the ability to pack an amazing punch.

Compared to the default Heavy Revolver, it deals +25% damage per shot (200 instead of 160) and shoots almost 50% faster (due to it being used in double-action mode as opposed to single-action), making its damage output almost doubled.

7. Assault Shotgun

The Assault Shotgun is a very underrated weapon. Players need explosive ammo to deal damage to vehicles using this weapon.

Vs normal targets, it is very powerful at close range, with the ability to two-shot or three-shot pretty much everyone. The best part here is that its fire rate is so fast that the kill can almost be counted as one-shot.

The magazine size of the Assault Shotgun is pretty decent for a weapon of the class.

If you have to go into any confined space, bringing this gun is a must. Just don't try it at range, as the spread is rather high.

8. Up-n-Atomizer

The Up-n-Atomizer is a small handheld futuristic raygun, sporting a blue finish with a yellow coil as the barrel. When a person or vehicle is hit directly with a shot, it will send them flying into the air, dealing a bit of damage. Each shot has a bit of AoE to it so even a near miss can still trigger the launching effect.

Players can easily flip a car with this gun.

Firing the Up-n-Atomizer can also unstuck vehicles if players somehow render them unable to move.

9. Orbital Cannon

The most powerful weapon in GTA Online, the Orbital Cannon, is amazing for its meme potential. Players can anyone or anything on the map once every in-game day (48 real-time minutes) at a cost of $500,000 per manual fire (or $750,000 for automatic aimed fire).

The cannon will destroy any vehicle hit by the shot, killing any occupants. If you absolutely want to get rid of an annoying griefer, paying some money for an orbital cannon shot is definitely a great idea.

10. RPG

The classic RPG is a great weapon against vehicles and campers hiding behind walls or on top of buildings. Unlike the homing variant, players would have to aim a bit.

Anything that you would need the homing launcher for can be done better with the Heavy Sniper MK2.

The benefit of choosing the RPG over the homing launcher is its higher amount of rockets, 20 compared to 10. It's also better at lining up a precise shot where you aim it rather than locking onto any passing vehicles.
