"History shows that where an army fails, a surgical strike can suceed. All you need is a couple of well-drilled sociopaths, a fresh batch of experimental drugs, a cache of depleted uranium munitions, and a lightweight, armored sandrail with a machine gun bolted to the dash. We can't officially comment on the rest, but we can assure you the Dune FAV is going to be all the transport you need."
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The BF Dune FAV (Fast Attack Vehicle) is an armed variant of the Dune Buggy featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Gunrunning update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The buggy appears to take strong inspirations from the Desert Patrol Vehicle (formerly known as the "Fast Attack Vehicle"), although with a standard cabin instead of having a rear section for the rear gunner.

The Dune FAV is essentially a Dune Buggy modified for combat purposes. While sharing the initial buggy design, the front features an additional frame bar behind the lights, while the upper front area is less angled than the Dune Buggy and has an extended panel on the driver side and a cut-out for the passenger-side turret. The sides of the vehicle feature extended racks to carry additional equipment, while the cabin features a higher, flatter profile, an additional front frame and a solid roof panel. The rear section is more or less identical to the Dune Buggy, but the rear frames are more slanted and features a solid plate covering the rear end and the engine bay. Its underside is also similar to the Dune Buggy, but features a sump guard below the engine.

The occupants' section retains the same features as the standard Dune Buggy, but features an additional support for the turret mount, while the passenger side of the cabin frame is moved downwards to leave extra room for the gun. The wiring for the radio set is also readjusted in line with the frame below the turret gun.

The vehicle features an extensive ammount of equipment on the front, sides and rear, consisting of a shovel and axe kit, duffel bags, ammo boxes, Jerry Cans, a spare wheel and a strapped antenna on the driver side, as well as a Carbine Rifle on the driver-side frame and a Combat MG on the passenger-side one. The vehicle's primary colour is applied on the entirety of the vehicle and the rims, while the secondary colour is applied on the brake calipers. It also shares the same rim design as the Dune Buggy and the Injection, but all four wheels are fitted with dust tyres.

As stated before, the vehicle is equipped with a turret that can be modified to have either a Shrewsbury 7.62mm MG, a Shrewsbury 40mm Grenade Launcher or a Coil 7.62mm Minigun.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Vehicle

The Dune FAV appears to have better top speed and acceleration than the Dune Buggy, while retaining the general handling and the off-road capabilities. The Dune FAV can also lean easily in mid-air jumps, allowing for quick recoveries. However, the lack of armour makes the vehicle vulnerable against collisions, firearms in general and explosives, and the lack of armour plating on the cabin renders the occupants vulnerable to gunfire.

Like the Dune Buggy and many BF offroad vehicles, the Dune FAV is powered by a single cam Flat-4 engine, coupled to a 5-speed gearbox in a rear engine, rear wheel drive layout. Its sound appears to be a louder variation of the one from the Dune Buggy and the Injection.

Weaponry

The gunner has access to a dashboard-mounted turret that gives limited motion range, with a rotation angle of about 90 degrees (45 for each side) and an elevation angle of about -10 to 30 degrees. If alone, the drive can easily switch between the driver seat and the gunner seat when stationary.

  • Machine Gun: the stock option is a 7.62mm MG, which has similar similar statistics to that of the Insurgent Pick-Up's weapon. This gives the vehicle some potential at taking out lightly-armoured vehicles and low-flying aircraft.
  • Grenade Launcher: the second option is a 40mm Grenade Launcher, which has almost the same performance as its normal counterpart, except that the rounds explode half a second after hitting the ground (in a similar manner to the Pipe Bomb. This makes the gun great at taking out armoured vehicles, but has limited range and ammo capacity (about 20 grenades).
  • Minigun: the third option is a 7.62mm Minigun, which behaves the same as any mounted minigun present in other vehicles such as the Valkyrie and the Turreted Limo. This gives the vehicle better chances at hitting targets thanks to its high fire rate, but the rounds have lower damage output than the MG's rounds.
  • The vehicle has the option for installing Proximity Mines, which behave the same as any remote explosive and are operated by the driver. These mines are a bit stronger than their hand-held counterparts and are also limited to five active mines. Caution should be taken when using it, as it can potentially damage or destroy the vehicle.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • One or two Dune FAVs are provided to the crew in the first Mobile Operation mission, Severe Weather Patterns. One has the mounted MG and the second one a mounted Minigun.
    • Furthermore, if the player has completed this mission, the regular Dune Buggy provided in a Steal Supplies mission will be replaced with a Dune FAV.
  • Dune FAVs are occasionally provided as the delivery vehicles in a Sell Weapons mission to make 5 drop-offs around the map. The mission also asks the player to use the buggies' Proximity Mines to take out enemies chasing behind.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto Online

Trivia

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Shooting with the MG or Minigun from first person view is easier, as the camera does not shake like in third person angles.
  • The Dune FAV has no default radio station. The radio will be switched off when the player enters the vehicle.

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • If an NPC uses the mounted gun, they will be able to shoot enemies in any direction, ignoring its physical restriction. Despite this, the gun is still physically restricted from facing in the direction its bullets will travel.
    • For instance, this can be done in the mission No Hay Bronca, which allows Stanley to use the gun as a passenger.
    • This is also seen in many other armed NPC enemy vehicles, whereas they can shoot at any direction the player is at regardless of the weapon's direction/rotation ability.
