The GTA Online Gun Van is continually on the move between different darkened alleyways and deserted parking lots, travelling across Los Santos and Blaine County to stay off the radar of rival arms dealers and the law. While this keeps the business low key, it does mean that customers have a harder time finding them if they want to make some illicit purchases – there are plenty of places where the Gun Van can spawn, so I'm here to help you track it down fast. The devastating Railgun still remains off sale, though you can grab the exclusive Battle Rifle if you visit this week.

These transactions are strictly off the books, which means the usual unlock requirements don't apply here and you can purchase any of the Gun Van offerings regardless of your online rank. The quoted costs also include a discount thanks to this covert service, so it's definitely worth paying a visit and adding some GTA Online new weapons and other useful items to your arsenal.

Finding this Vapid Speedo van is the best way to bulk out your armory in GTA Online, but that's easier said than done as it moves location on a daily basis to avoid any undesirable heat from the authorities or other interested parties. This means you'll need some further information to track it down, and with that in mind here's everything you need to know about where to find the Gun Van in GTA Online, and what's currently on offer in the Gun Van inventory.

Where is the GTA Online Gun Van

At the time of writing on June 20 the GTA Online Gun Van location is in Magellan Ave, next to Vespucci Beach and just to the north of the Vespucci Movie Masks store. A Gun Van icon will appear on your map to confirm where it's parked, but only when you're in proximity of its current location – unless you have a GTA+ subscription.

The GTA Online Gun Van location will change every day, randomized between 30 different set positions, although not all of those have been used yet. We already know what every one of these locations will be, and you can see them on the map below, so if you need the Gun Van but aren't sure where it's currently based then work through these markers until it spawns. The GTAWeb interactive map should also show you where the latest Gun Van location is – select it from the sidebar if it doesn't appear automatically, and make sure you choose the current location rather than the previous one. Finally, if you're a GTA+ subscriber then the Gun Van location will be permanently marked on your map, so you can easily find it wherever you are.

Once you've located the GTA Online Gun Van, approach it and the back doors will pop open, allowing you to interact with the vendor sitting inside and see what wares they have for offer. These are categorized into Weapons, Throwables, and Body Armor, so have a browse through and see if anything takes your fancy – you may even find some exclusive items that you can't purchase from Ammu-Nation or anywhere else, such as the Railgun, Tactical SMG, GTA Online Battle Rifle, and Republican Space Ranger weapons including the GTA Online Up-n-Atomizer, Unholy Hellbringer, and Widowmaker. There are also the usual ammo, attachments, and tints for sale to stock up or customize your weapons. The inventory of weapons being sold by the Gun Van rotates each week, so make sure you visit it regularly and don't miss any rare offers.
