"Abandon your prejudices. This is not a delivery truck. It's a blank canvas. Somewhere you can create a thundering juggernaut of modern urban warfare, spitting missiles, machine gun fire, proximity mines and grenades at every turn, covered in near-impregnable armor, the terrifying spearhead of your new business empire. Cup holders not included.
Please note: this vehicle can be stored and modified exclusively in your nightclub warehouse.

Warstock Cache & Carry description.


The Maibatsu Mule Custom is a custom light truck featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the After Hours update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle is essentially a custom variant of the Mule, which features highly-advanced modifications, including an array of Gunrunning camo liveries and mounted weapons.

The truck is based upon the "heist" variant of the regular Mule inttoduced in the Heists Update, but the grille separations appear to be finished in chrome. It also has side steps and handles on either side of the cargo box, intended for two additional players to hang onto the sides, in a similar manner to the Brickade and the RCV. The vehicle only has access to a primary color for the cabin and the box, and shares the same industrial wheels from the regular Mule.

The vehicle can be equipped with either two front-facing machine guns or two unguided missile launchers, as well as a remote grenade launcher identical to the one from the TM-02 Khanjali.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Vehicle

The Mule Custom is, as expected from a large box truck, relatively slow on the throttle and has poor brakes, but, like the original heist Mule and the Pounder Custom, makes up for its ability to ram vehicles out of the way. While not as powerful as the Pounder Custom or better, the Brickade, against other cars, the truck can be upgraded with a front scoop, which slightly increases its ability to part traffic.

Like the regular Mule, the Mule Custom has a 3-litre diesel engine, according to the badges and rear-wheel drive, as indicated in the handling files and in-game. The truck does not include a visible engine model, however. Its sound is somewhat similar to a diesel, high-revving engine with a significantly smooth engine sound, shared with the regular Mule, the Benson and the Stockade. The truck has Four Wheel Rotation System badges, suggesting it uses differential devices or transmission system.

Armor

Despite having three different levels of armor upgrades, none of them make the truck any more durable in free roam, as the truck will still explode with only a single explosive near the body. However, during Sell Goods missions, the truck is more durable, which will improve depending of the armor level. The cabin also has bullet-resistant windows similar to vehicles like the Schafter V12 (Armored) and the Baller LE (Armored), giving the occupants slight protection against most firearms before being shattered.

Weaponry

The Mule Custom can be modified with an array of weapons, separated into primary (driver-operated) and secondary (passenger-operated):

  • Machine Guns: the first primary option is a set of two front-facing machine guns, which perform the same as those of vehicles like the Blazer Aqua and the Ruiner 2000. They have decent firepower against players and vehicles with none or light armor, but will struggle against heavily-armored vehicles.
  • Missiles: the second primary option is a set of two front-facing, unguided missiles that work similar to the ones from the Weaponized Tampa. This gives the vehicle a more offensive option against armored vehicles, but the lack of homing capabilities makes it difficult to hit fast-moving targets, considering the sluggish handling of the truck. It also has a limited capacity of 30 missiles.
  • Grenade Launcher: The vehicle can be modified with a secondary remote grenade launcher, which provide greater firepower against armored targets, at the cost of having limited effective range, fire rate and ammo (30 rounds). The rounds will explode half a second after hitting the ground, similar to the Pipe Bombs and the grenade launchers available in the Dune FAV and the Barrage.
  • 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.
