"After a certain point, you have to ask: is this still a weaponized vehicle? Or is it just an arms depot with four wheels and an engine? Well take it from us: once you've taken your pick of heavy armor, front-mounted chain guns, dual missile launchers, an artillery barrage, a passenger-controlled grenade launcher, proximity mines and a roof covered in barbed wire, you know you've crossed that line.

Please note: this vehicle can be stored and modified exclusively in your nightclub warehouse.
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The MTL Pounder Custom is a custom variant of the Pounder, added to Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the After Hours update.


Grand Theft Auto Online

It is essentially a custom variant of the Pounder exclusive to Grand Theft Auto Online, which features highly-advanced modifications. The Pounder will sport a worn effect by default, along with side guard rails (similar to the heist Mule and Mule Custom and side handles on the main cargo bay sides which allow players to hang on the sides in a similar manner to the RCV.

The Pounder Custom is, as expected from a large truck, relatively slow on the throttle and has poor brakes, but makes up for its sheer size and ability to ram vehicles out of the way. While not as powerful as the Brickade against other road users, the truck can be upgraded with a front wedge similar to that on the Armored Boxville, which slightly increases its ability to part traffic. In addition, it cannot navigate through low tunnels, making deliveries extremely difficult.


Unlike other armored trucks, however, the Pounder Custom isn't any more durable than the regular Pounder, even with the armor plating upgrades, and will explode with just one rocket or other explosive. The windows are slightly more defensive against bullets, but not completely impenetrable.

The barbed wire is optional, though it prevents other players from climbing into the box.


The Pounder Custom can be modified with an array of weapons:

  • Two driver-controlled Miniguns, which operate the same as those on smaller armed cars such as the Stromberg, Vigilante and Ardent, but having the firepower of gatling guns from vehicles like the Valkyrie.
  • Two driver-operated Missile Launchers, again operating the same as other cars with missiles.
  • A driver-operated Remote Missile Battery, which behaves like the APC's SAM turret, capable of firing four unguided rockets. It takes four seconds to reload.
  • A passenger-operated Remote Grenade Launcher identical to that of the TM-02 Khanjali, able to kill unarmored players and destroy unarmored vehicles with a single round. However the player must be aware that doing so too near the truck will immediately destroy it.
