In GTA Online, Vehicles are not built equal. Some can be blown up with just one missile while others can tank all the missiles without getting destroyed.

Therefore, in this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 10 most durable vehicles in GTA Online. The stats are based on a 100% armor vehicle with a player inside.

1. JoBuilt Phantom Custom

The JoBuilt Phantom Custom is an armored, Commercial vehicle featured in GTA Online. It can be stored in the Bunker. It can be customized at Bunker Vehicle Workshop.

Phantom Custom

  • Homing Launcher / Oppressor Missiles / Jet Missiles: 69
  • RPG / Grenades / Sticky Bomb / Moc Cannon: 24
  • Explosive Rounds (Heavy Sniper Mk II): 59

Overall, this armored truck is heavily resistant to the most common attack weapons in the game. When a player is driving, the car can take up to 69 missiles before getting destroyed.

2. JoBuilt Hauler Custom

The JoBuilt Hauler Custom is mostly identical to the Phantom custom. the reason it is only #2 is because of its slightly lower top speed. Both can serve as a Cab Option for the Mobile Operations Center.

Hauler Custom

Both the Hauler Custom and the Phantom Custom have half-resistance when it's not occupied by a player.

3. Benefactor Terrorbyte

The Terrorbyte can be stored and customized in the Nightclub Warehouse.


It has similar functionality to the Mobile Operations Center and the Avenger, with optional add-ons such as a Gun Turret, a Vehicle Workshop and a Weapon Workshop that can be purchased.

  • Homing Launcher / Oppressor Missiles / Jet Missiles: 34
  • RPG / Grenades / Sticky Bomb / Moc Cannon: 34
  • Explosive Rounds (Heavy Sniper Mk II): 81

Overall, while it is not as durable as the above haulers, 34 rockets is still a respectable amount of armor. Its bullet resistance is absolutely astounding - the most powerful gun in the game doesn't deal much damage to it.

4. HVY Nightshark

Overall, if you want a tanky vehicle that can move around fast, the Nightshark is probably your best bet. Its off-road capability makes the Nightshark superior to the #1 to 3, as they are cumbersome trucks.


  • Homing Launcher / Oppressor Missiles / Jet Missiles: 27
  • RPG / Grenades / Sticky Bomb / Moc Cannon: 9
  • Explosive Rounds (Heavy Sniper Mk II): 23

The car is highly resistant to missiles and explosive rounds, which makes it a popular choice against griefers. Unlike the trailer, it is small and has better handing + acceleration.

5. HVY Insurgent Pick-up Custom

The HVY Insurgent Pick-up Custom is an armored, weaponized Off-Road vehicle. Players need to buy the normal Insurgent and modify it.

Insurgent Pickup Custom

It has exactly the same resistance to missiles and bullets as the Nightshark. However, its speed is rather low at only 99.25 mph. The base model (normal Insurgent Pick-up) and the base Insurgent also have the same armor, but lower speed.

Overall, players should just stick with the Nightshark if they want an off-road vehicle that can tank rockets.

6. Bravado Half-track

The Bravado Half-track is an armored, weaponized Military vehicle. It has the same armor as the Insurgent variants and the Nightshark, with the ability to tank up to 27 rockets.


In exchange for its turtle speed of 58.25 mph, the Bravado Half-track can be equipped with the powerful Anti-aircraft Trailer Dual 20mm Flak, which can kill most vehicles in just a few shots. Even the number 1 on this list can only tank 6 shots of this cannon.

7. HVY Menacer

The Menacer is yet another off-road tanky vehicle from HVY, with the ability to tank slightly fewer attacks than the Nightshark. It is not that good of a choice, however, as its windows are not bulletproof.


  • Homing Launcher / Oppressor Missiles / Jet Missiles: 23
  • RPG / Grenades / Sticky Bomb / Moc Cannon: 8
  • Explosive Rounds (Heavy Sniper Mk II): 19

The vehicle's speed and handling are also lower.

8. Mammoth Avenger

The first flying vehicle on this list - the Mammoth Avenger is the tankiest plane in the game, with identical armor to the Menacer. It is almost twice as fast and is bulletproof, however.


Combined with its powerful explosive cannons, the Avenger is probably one of the best choices for players who want to dominate the sky.  The cannons behave similarly to those of the MOC, albeit with a slightly higher fire rate and seemingly infinite range.

9. RUNE Zhaba

The RUNE Zhaba is an armored, Off-Road vehicle that handles very well on rough terrains. It has great protection against sticky bombs and grenades.


  • Homing Launcher / Oppressor Missiles / Jet Missiles: 14
  • RPG / Grenades / Sticky Bomb / Moc Cannon: 14
  • Explosive Rounds (Heavy Sniper Mk II): 33

The Zhaba also has amphibious capabilities, allowing it to traverse water. Top speed and acceleration are low, making it slower than the APC and other boats. Turning is fine and braking is good as well.

10. HVY Barrage

Yet another tanky off road vehicle from HVY - the Barrage is the fastest HVY vehicle on this list in exchange for its lower armor.


  • Homing Launcher / Oppressor Missiles / Jet Missiles: 14
  • RPG / Grenades / Sticky Bomb / Moc Cannon: 5
  • Explosive Rounds (Heavy Sniper Mk II): 12

Players only need a couple of missile hits to destroy it. However, due to the speed and handling of the car, it is possible to dodge attacks.
