The Nightshark is one of the most popular vehicles in GTA Online. Aside from the cool name, it is one of the nicest-looking armored, military-style vehicles available to purchase. In this article, is going to showcase the top 5 reasons players should buy the Nightshark in GTA Online.

1. High durability

The Nightshark is very heavily armored. When upgraded, the vehicle can withstand the most explosions out of all vehicles in the game. Most players use rockets from a Homing Missile Launcher or an Oppressor MK2 to deal with vehicles, and it takes a whopping 27 rockets to blow the Nightshark up. A good driver can even evade some of the missiles, making the task even harder.

Its high durability is perfect for GTA Online players who don't want to be interrupted by griefers or random accidents that often happen in the game.

2. Anti-Aircraft Trailer

Players can buy an additional Anti-air weapon system and attach it behind the Nightshark in the form of a trailer. It is equipped with a turret that has 360-degree coverage and a 40-degree elevation angle effectively purposed for attacking aircraft and most threats on the ground.

The turret can be customized with three types of weapons. The first option, the Quad MG, is a quad machine gun turret that has a high rate of fire and good range, as well as great accuracy and firepower. It can demolish lightly armored vehicles and aircraft in seconds.

The second option is a powerful SAM battery with high accuracy and the third option is a Dual Flak cannon. The latter is actually the second most powerful weapon in the game, just behind the orbital cannon in power.

3. Decent speed and maneuverability

For an armored vehicle of this size, the Nightshark performs exceptionally well. It has great acceleration and good top speed, as well as great handling, able to sort most turns on the road, though one may experience slight understeer on sharp turns. Even with the trailer attached, the Nightshark's speed remains the same.

While it cannot compete with most supercars in a race, the top speed of 105 mph is more than enough to evade enemies' attacks. It also pushes other vehicles around fairly easily with the reinforced bumper.

4. Weaponized

Machine Gun: The driver has access to four front-facing machine guns, which perform the same as those of vehicles such as the Blazer Aqua and the Ruiner 2000. They have decent firepower against players and vehicles with none or light armor, but will struggle against heavily-armored vehicles.

While the usage of these guns is fairly limited, they do give players an edge in chases. Their firepower can take out the enemies' tires fairly easily.

5. Appearance

The Nightshark is depicted as an armored SUV with a large and bulky design. The front end is predominated by a heavy-duty bumper with a steel bar on the center, numerous holes above and trapezoid shapes on the edges.

Overall, it is very good-looking, which might suit players who are fans of military designs.
