GTA 5: How To Get Money Out Of Armored Truck

Green armored vans can be seen parked around restaurants, gas stations, and other prominent businesses in GTA 5. But did you know you could steal money from these Armored Cars in-game?

This quick guide will show you how to get money from Armored Trucks in GTA 5.

Do Armored Trucks Carry Money?

Armored Trucks carry a decent amount of money in GTA 5. Each Armored Truck can have anywhere from $3000-$8000 in money drops.

$3000-$8000 might not seem like much, but when considering ten different Armored Van locations in GTA 5, the money you get from each one will add up very quickly.

Moreover, Armored Vans respawn indefinitely in specific locations around the game, meaning you can return later and rob the same Armored Truck if you wish.

How do you get money out of the Armored Truck in GTA 5?

You can get the money from the Security Vans/Armored Trucks in GTA 5 using a Sticky Bomb to blow open the rear door. Alternatively, you can shoot at the rear door handles to break the doors open.

A briefcase should drop from the back of the truck after you break the rear door. This briefcase will have varying amounts of money, but you can expect to get anywhere from $3000-$8000 cash.

One important tip: DO NOT detonate the Sticky Bomb while other cars surround the Armored Truck. Doing so will cause a chain explosion and scatter the money in the briefcase resulting in a smaller overall take.

Where to find all the Armored Trucks in GTA 5

Armored Trucks are part of the Security Vans Random Event in GTA 5. There are 10 of these Random Events in the game, all of which respawn indefinitely throughout the game.
