"The only bike able to climb a 45% hill of discarded Pißwasser bottles."
Arena War description.

The Western Motorcycle Company Nightmare Deathbike is a custom motorcycle featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Arena War update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle is essentially a Gargoyle with various modifications on it. It features a single headlight offset to the left and having protective frames on it, identical to Daryl's bike from the TV Series The Walking Dead. The bike also features a shorter rear fender and both wheels sport a tire chain. Additional modifications include two bolted-on stripes around the fuel tank.

The vehicle is essentially identical to its Apocalypse variant, but sports bright colors for the bodywork. The tires are colored with the secondary color. Unlike the aforementioned vehicle, the Nightmare Deathbike no longer sports tire chains.

The vehicle also sports permanent colors applied to random parts, which are the following;

  • Green: Suspension forks, front panel trims, headlamp protective frames, handlebar main frame sections, fork upper ends, fuel tank straps, oil tank upper surface, foot pedal frames, gear shifter rod, air filter connection, exhaust tip, suspension spring rings, swingarm, brake cable fittings and rear wheel pivot.
  • Blue: fork upper end details, handlebar brakes, rear-view mirror, lower and inner frames, air filter connection detail, engine push rods, seat trim, exhaust tip detail, suspension springs and brake caliper supporters.
  • Pink: Front wheel pivot, handlebar main frames, foot pedal rods (lower left and upper right), suspension spring pivots and wheel pivot caps.
  • Yellow: handlebar sections and foot pedal rods (upper left and lower right).

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

Vehicle

The Deathbike is similar to the Gargoyle in terms of handling, but has possibly the highest top speed of all land vehicles at a recorded 150 mph. The upgrades makes it an excellent choice for hits & runs. Like its base model, it is powered by a V-Twin engine. Its engine sound is the same as that used choppers and cruisers, such as the Police Bike and Bagger.

The Nightmare Deathbike shares its handling with the Apocalypse Deathbike.

Players should be careful when the blades are equipped, since that, when taking a turn, any curbs or bumps in the way can hit the blades and may cause the rider to crash, as well as making the vehicle nearly as wide as the Chimera. Additionally, players need to be extra careful when driving this bike around Arena War events such as Carnage and Wreck It; if they fall off the bike as a result of an awkward landing or being caught in an explosion, it will count as the player being wasted. In addition, if the tires become punctured, its turning radius will be greatly affected, making it difficult to steer.

Abilities
  • The vehicle can be installed with "Jump" mods. The Jump modifications come in three levels of effectiveness and can be activated using the horn button. When activated, the vehicle will be launched into the air, in a similar way to the Ruiner 2000 and Scramjet.
  • The vehicle can be installed with Boost upgrades. This can be used to significantly speed up the vehicle. It can be used repeatedly while driving the vehicle, but it is better to let it fully recharge for maximum efficiency.
Armor

The Deathbike is able to take a single explosive without being destroyed. However, the rider is still vulnerable to gunfire. The Heavy Armor upgrade partially reduces this issue, as a riot shield is mounted over the rear fender, acting as a rear defense when escaping from a pursuing vehicle with front machine guns.

Weaponry
  • The Deathbike can be modified to have two gatling guns on the sides. It behaves similarly to other gatling guns such as the stock ones from the Weaponized Tampa.
  • The bike can also be installed with saw blades. These blades deal damage to NPCs and players, contact with the blades can instantly kill them and pop tires.

GTA Online Arena War - Western Deathbike (Apocalypse, Future Shock & Nightmare)

Locations

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Can be converted from a Gargoyle at the Arena Workshop, for $1,269,000.
    • The vehicle comes with the "Cluckin' Bell" Livery and Body Spikes as standard upon conversion.

Bugs/Glitches

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • Like its base model, the Nightmare Deathbike suffers from a glitch in which a larger rim on the rear wheel can etch into the ground when performing a wheelie, giving the bike a constant and tremendous speed boost.
  • Strangely, the brake calipers, transmission chain and rear toothed wheel have a blue-ish shade on the right-hand side, in contrast with the standard metallic grey on the left-hand side.
