All GTA Online Armored Truck locations in 2023

The Armored Truck is one of the oldest and most popular freemode events in GTA Online. While Rockstar Games removed it from the multiplayer game in 2015, it has decided to reintroduce it with the most recent Grand Theft Auto Online weekly update on July 13, 2023. However, many players are finding it challenging to spawn the event.

Since Armored Truck is a random event, there is no definite time or condition to spawn it. However, the Grand Theft Auto community quickly discovered some locations where the event-related Armored Trucks usually appear.

This article lists all locations where GTA Online players can search for the event.

Where to find Armored Trucks freemode event in GTA Online


The Armored Truck is one of the popular money-making methods in GTA Online. All players need to do is rob a Brute Stockade belonging to the Gruppe 6 private security company. However, it should be noted that there are several other Gruppe 6 Stockades roaming on the map, and not all of them are related to the event.

The event-related Armored Trucks are highlighted by a small blue dot on the mini-map. If you don’t see the blue dot while standing near a Gruppe 6 Stockade truck, it is not related to the event.

It should also be noted that Rockstar Games has introduced several freemode events in GTA Online that are denoted by a blue dot. Therefore, seeing a similar icon on the mini-map does not always imply that it is the Armored Truck event.
