The Karin Technical Custom is a modified variant of the Technical, featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Gunrunning update.


The Technical Custom was originally introduced as a mission-only vehicle that could be driven by the player as a bunker supply. However, as of the Technical Custom Week event, commencing July 18, 2017, it became available for purchase.


Grand Theft Auto Online

The Technical Custom is a compact two-door pickup truck which features a very linear design, similar to that of a fourth generation Toyota Hilux.

In-game, it is essentially a Technical, but adds a tow hitch on the back that is connected to a large frame coming from under the truck bed. It also has a non-rusted body with rusted mirrors, wider fenders, and its badge has been moved from its grille to the plate holder. Aside from its standard DShK 50 caliber Machine Gun on the rear bed, the Technical Custom has the option to add a mounted Minigun and armor plating for the chassis.

The Technical Custom essentially performs the same as the Technical, and is claimed to feature a V8 engine, sharing a V8 model too, which provides an above-average amount of power to all four wheels and is able to keep the vehicle moving without loss of traction.

On road, the Technical Custom has ample acceleration and a reasonable top speed in line with other trucks. It stays flat in the corners for a truck with its size and height, but will have more chances to roll over due to the extra weight in the back of the truck. Its ride, however, is stiff and punishing. The Technical seats only two in its spartan cab, plus a gunner on its modified truck bed. The weight of the gun on the back will increase oversteer in certain situations.

Off-road, the Technical Custom is easily one of the best off-road vehicles in the game. Its high ground clearance, 4-wheel drive and fat off-road tires allow the Technical to negotiate hills and rocks with ease, and it has a a bit higher chance of a rollover than the normal Rebel.

The diesel engine provides ample power, and will easily cause wheel spin when going up steep and slippery hills, but if the driver feathers the throttle, the Technical will make use of all of its grip well and climb hills easily. The Technical can reach relatively high speeds off-road, and landing right from jumps has the suspension taking in all the impact, leaving the body undamaged.

The truck has a short wheelbase, although "beaching" the truck is still a danger the driver must watch, especially when rock climbing with the truck.


Although bulletproof windows can be fitted, they do not provide any protection to the driver and passenger, as they can still be shot through from bullets by enemy NPCs and other players. The same applies to the Weaponized Tampa, Nightshark and Insurgent Pick-Up Custom. Like its equivalents, the vehicle can be destroyed by a single explosive.

The gunner also has little to no protection against gunfire and may fall from the vehicle when it is flipped


The vehicle has a weaponized turret for use by an independent gunner, offering 360 degree rotation angle and ~50 degree elevation angle, making it effective at taking out aircraft and vehicles in general:

  • The Technical Custom comes equipped with a Soviet 50 caliber machine gun, which has devastating power against pedestrians and unarmored vehicles, making it a good choice for an escort vehicle. The vehicle is able to kill most NPCs and players in one to two hits and take down most helicopters or vehicles in less than twenty.
  • The second option is a mounted 7.62mm Minigun, which behaves like many mounted miniguns found on other vehicles. Although not very powerful, the high fire rate makes it great against unarmored targets and cars.
  • 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.

Towing an Anti-Aircraft Trailer in collaboration with another player gives the vehicle increased potential, as the trailer turret can provide additional defense when the main vehicle is supressing enemies. Caution should be taken when carrying the AA trailer, as it is possible to trigger a proximity mine that the Technical Custom has placed, destroying the trailer. The lack of armor from both the vehicle and the trailer mean that destroying one can cause severe damage to the other and vice-versa

  • The stock MG option usually gives general flexibility against targets and one can protect the other gunner from behind. Focusing a single target with both turrets usually means increased damage.
  • The SAM option gives good capabilities at taking out long-range aircraft, compensating the lack of range and limited capabilities of the Technical Custom against armored vehicles. Land vehicles can be taken out with the SAM battery, but the low fire rate limits its effectiveness against armored targets.
  • The Flak Cannon option gives the vehicle a better way to defeat enemy heavy armor, again due to the Technical Custom's low capabilities against armored targets, but that means exposing the trailer directly to the enemy threat, especially tanks and weaponized aircraft.
