The GTA Online Gun Van is parked up in a different location every day, so this unregulated trader can stay under the radar and avoid detection. It definitely pays to find them, however, as they have plenty of off-the-books items for sale including certain illicit weapons that don't get offered by Ammu-Nation or other retailers. The other reason to visit this travelling salesman is that they don't conform to the system, which means any unlock prerequisites for weapons or upgrades are ignored and you can bypass the rank requirements to get earlier access. There is a mark-up applied to the Gun Van prices due to these special services, but with GTA Online new weapons and other useful items on offer it's worth spending the extra amount.

Finding this Vapid Speedo van is the best way to bulk out your arsenal 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. 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 from their inventory.

Where is the GTA Online Gun Van

At the time of writing on February 2, the GTA Online Gun Van location is in the Tataviam Mountains, to the east of the Vinewood Racetrack on the north side of the Land Act Reservoir near some large pipes. 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.

The GTA Online Gun Van location will change every day, randomized between 30 different set positions in a similar way to Red Dead Online Madam Nazar. We already know what these locations will be (thanks GTA Series Videos (opens in new tab)) and you can see them all 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 (opens in new tab) should also show you where the latest Gun Van location is – select it from the sidebar if it doesn't appear automatically.

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. There are also the usual ammo, attachments, and tints for sale to stock up or customize any of 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 out on any rare offers.
