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.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The vehicle is essentially identical to its Apocalypse variant, but sports bright colors for the bodywork. It retains most of the features from the Apocalypse version, being the left handlebar mirror, rusty transmission cover, the straps on the fuel tank and the short exhaust pipes. However, the tire chains are omitted in this model.

The vehicle is painted with a primary color for the body, while the secondary color is applied on the tires. The rims are painted with a dedicated wheel color, which is set to yellow upon conversion. The vehicle also sports permanent colors applied to random parts, which are the following;

  • Green: Fork legs, front panel trims, headlight protective frames, handlebar clamps, upper fork ends, fuel tank straps, oil tank upper surface, foot pedal frames, gear shifter rods, air filter connector, exhaust tip, suspension spring rings, swingarm, brake cable fittings and rear wheel pivot.
  • Blue: upper fork ends, handlebar brakes, rear-view mirror, chassis frames, air filter connector detail, engine push rods, seat detail, exhaust tip detail, suspension springs and brake caliper supports.
  • Pink: Front wheel pivot, handlebar frames, lower left/upper right foot pedal pegs, suspension pivots and wheel pivots.
  • Yellow: handlebar sections and upper left/lower right foot pedal pegs.

The vehicle can be equipped with two side-mounted gatling guns that resemble GAU-17/A miniguns.

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 and coupled to a 4-speed gearbox, also sharing the distinctively loud and odd-firing sound of the Gargoyle.

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.

  • 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.

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.

  • Miniguns: The Deathbike can be modified to have two gatling guns on the sides, which behave similarly to other gatling guns such as the stock one from the Weaponized Tampa. While not particularly powerful against armored vehicles, it can still be deadly against enemies on foot and unarmored vehicles, and the maneuverability of the bike generally makes aiming easier while on movement.
  • 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.

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.


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 sprocket have a blue-ish shade on the right-hand side, but the left-hand side have the regular metallic grey appearance.
