"Ironically named light armored personnel vehicle. Perfect for crushing small rebellions in a dictatorship or wiping out peaceful protests in an alleged democracy. This model is fitted with a turret cannon."
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The HVY Insurgent Pick-Up is a Light Armored Personnel Vehicle (LAPV) featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Heists Update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Insurgent Pick-Up is inspired by the Terradyne Armored Vehicles line of tactical armored vehicles, particularly the RPV, using the exact same fenders, rear pick-up bed, external roll-bar application to the rear, and general body shape.

The vehicle is essentially a pick-up, armed variant of the Insurgent, where it has an external roll cage and a roof-mounted Browning M2HB .50 caliber machine gun, which can be accessed by anyone standing on the roof or sitting in one of the rear cabin seats. The rear section no longer features the enclosed compartment and the rear door, allowing two passengers to sit in one of the truck bed's benches.

Color distribution is the same as the normal Insurgent, with the roll bars being painted with the secondary color.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Vehicle

The Insurgent Pick-Up performs very similar to that of its unarmed counterpart. In terms of overall performance, the acceleration is somewhat lacking due to its heavy weight, but it has an acceptable top speed. The Insurgent Pick-Up's immense weight helps to keep it grounded when cornering, and contributes to it having good handling for a vehicle of its stature. It has a decent cornering radius and understeer is relatively minor. The Insurgent Pick-Up is abnormally sensitive in the air, and may be prone to crash landings if the user is not careful. However, it is able to quickly recover from rolling over. Though the engine model or bay cannot be seen, the sound is similar to that of the Landstalker's, but slightly smoother, coupled to a 6-speed gearbox in a front engine, all-wheel drive layout.

The vehicle's sheer weight means that it is a formidable vehicle towards other players. The Insurgent Pick-Up can cripple or even disable many other road vehicles if given a direct hit at full speed, and will usually run over lighter cars, deforming them and often breaking wheels or axles. It also seems to have a degree of top-heaviness that is evident while airborne, however it makes up for it by being able to recover abnormally fast from a rollover, relative to its class. It can also ram parked vehicles and continue to drive without any noticeable damage, and it will only show body deformation after a large number of collisions.

Armor

Like the standard Insurgent, it is distinctive by its armored body, which is able to withstand more damage than the average car, even able to withstand direct impacts from explosive weapons, comparable to a Rhino Tank. However, the Insurgent has large windshields and windows, making their occupants vulnerable to gunfire from the front. If the vehicle rolls over while carrying the external passengers and the gunner, they will fall off the vehicle and may either suffer a considerable damage or diying from being crushed by the same vehicle.

The vehicle comes with bullet-proof tyres by default, making them immune to bullet, fire and spike-strip damage.

Sanitary

The Insurgent Pick-Up can take the following:

Weaponry

What makes the Insurgent Pick-Up a great vehicle is the mounted gun. Although it seems to have a slower fire rate than the mounted gun of the Technical, it is still lethal to any unarmored target and can be killed easily. Both the gun and the turret hatch may offer some degree of protection against ground-level enemies, but they are stil vulnerable to getting shot from the sides or elevated areas.

The rear passengers on the Insurgent Pick-Up can toggle between ducking into the vehicle or getting on the gunner seat by pressing right on the D-Pad. This tactic can be extremely useful in case the gunner is very weak and needs to regenerate their health back by ducking into the Insurgent. Once they regains their health, they can press right on the D-Pad to get back up on the gunner seat. Another tactic can be done if there are multiple players on the rear seats, they can take turns being gunners. The ability to use the turret can be done either from the passenger seats or while standing on the roof in case that both rear seats are occupied and another player wants to use the turret.

Trivia

General

  • The Insurgent and Insurgent Pick-Up's textures are named "dillo", likely short for Armordillo. This is likely the vehicle's beta name.[6][7]
  • The Insurgent is one of the few vehicles in Grand Theft Auto Online to be based on a Canadian vehicle.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Neither variant of the Insurgent has an engine model due to the hood being impossible to open or remove. This is also the case for the Zentorno.
  • It should be noted that when the player is driving in a GTA Online free-roam lobby, the player will appear as a "turreted vehicle" blip on the radar which is visually similar to the Insurgent itself, regardless of which variant they are driving. However, it was intended to indicate a "dangerous vehicle", as both Insurgents are heavily armored and destroying them is not easy.[1]
  • Strangely, despite being a lot lighter than the Rhino Tank in the handling files, the Cargobob can barely even lift the Insurgent off the ground, unlike the Rhino Tank. This puts its weight in excess of 60 tons.
  • Upon release of the Heists Update, the Insurgent Pick-Up had a minor handling issue where the front wheels received 4% of the power from the engine. This issue was also present on the unarmed variant.
    • This was fixed in the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update, so the Insurgent Pick-Up's front wheels receive 40% of the power instead.
  • The Insurgent Pick-Up seems to have a missing exhaust system as fumes can be seen coming out from one of the bottom side body panels. This is the same case with the Albany Roosevelt.
  • The Insurgent Pick-Up has no default radio station. The radio will be switched off when the player enters the vehicle.
  • Interestingly, the roof lights appear to be working as both DRLs (Daytime Running Lamps) and high-beam lights, causing them to turn on upon igniting the engine but providing no high-beam light, unless the player toggles the corresponding function.

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • When first released, in the enhanced version, the rear tail lights on the Insurgent Pick-Up are not mirrored, causing the inner lights to have different light casts when reversing. However, from a distance, they will be. This glitch is not present in the original version of the game.
    • This was corrected in the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 update, as the Insurgent Pick-Up has gained corrections to the glitched rear lights (enhanced version only).
