    I've been compiling data regarding armored trucks. As of now, I'm not sure if the spawn location/times/dates are on any kind of pattern, but that's what this thread is about, mostly. Let's get to it, then.

05:00 Sunday -- Movie Studio

13:30 Sunday -- Hippy Camp on Grand Senora Freeway

18:00 Sunday -- Grapeseed (intersection near road leading to clothing store)

 

Amounts/Average

 

    Please try to get an exact amount for the sake of averages from here on out, I find the easiest way to do so, is carry $0 on you, and keep it all in the bank. When you hit the armored car, whatever you have is the amount it gave you!

 

Average (as of 25): 9,491.25

  1. 12,665
  2. 8,500
  3. 9,300
  4. 11,700
  5. 9,100
  6. 14,200
  7. 6,700
  8. 17,700
  9. 15,600
  10. 6,750
  11. 8,982
  12. 11,475
  13. 22,402
  14. 5,525
  15. 6,744
  16. 4,402
  17. 2,000
  18. 5,818
  19. 4,392
  20. 10,855

i'm gonna seem a real n00b here, but i assume you're talking in-game time, how do we know what the in-gmae time & day is? I'll make a note too of when i see them.

 

One thing i've noticed, is that i mostly see them a couple of minutes after a mission ends, or when i first load game up and leave apartment. I usually load up a friends only room, dont know if that effects it.

 

Also, usually when one one comes along, a few others do very shortly, tho not always

Pull up your cell phone, the time will be at the top along with the abbreviated day.

 

Example: Thu 17:24

You can also hit start and it shows in the top right hand corner.

I've leveled to 60 (no boosting or replaying same mission several times) and have only seen armored trucks once, yesterday. I believe it was Wednesday.

For the armored cars to appear, Everyone in the map must be above a level 13.

Newly level 50 & I've seen multiple armor trucks in every part of the map. No rhyme or reason to it. Doesn't pay off much tho. Only like 2k.

I wonder if patch 1.04 nerfed the payouts of armored trucks as well, then. We'll keep documenting the payout, and find out.

They seem to appear in groups for me, but if one appears outside your apartment, bust it, get cash, immediately go back to SP via the wheel, go back to MP, they appear outside your apartment again.  Happens 5 or 6 times in a row.  For me anyway.

2 nights ago my game glitched and I kept finding armoured trucks one after another.  It was pretty awesome as my friend let me get almost all 20 of them.

The other day I was in a FM after doing a mission and about 6 had spawn directly after one another. Yesterday I took down one and it gave me 4000RP and no cash (I think, ended up with 4K in my pocket). Then I hit another one and got 10855 from it.

 

So they haven't nerfed them, they are just random monies.

Ahh, alright. Sounds about right, then. I've updated the average/list of payouts people have received. Thanks!

Not sure if it was the same day, but recently i was playing with 3 friends and ACs were just spawning one after another all over the city. Payouts ranged from $12k+ to a couple that gave no money at all.

One thing I've noticed is that there seems to be a glitch where sometimes you will put the sticky bomb on the back doors of the truck and it will just destroy the truck, and you will receive no money.

 

It seems to be random though, as you could put a sticky bomb on the exact same spot and it simply blows the doors open.

 

I'm not sure of the exact number, but I've made $19,000 from one truck once.

The +$2000 or whatever that shows on your hud is per-bag. So if there were 5 bags, you likely made more like 10K. For an accurate number you need to look how much cash you have before and after hitting the truck.

Make sure when you trigger the bomb there are no other cars nearby. If there is a car next to it, and the car blows up, the truck will too.

BTW:  1 Minute in Real Time is 1 Hour in GTA:Online Time.

 

I really don't think there is a pattern to when the Armored Cars appear at a current Time but they do tend to spawn in most of the area's mentioned in the Main Topic.

I was in a bad sport lobby and Armored tuck were popping up like crazy.

 

 

The second one was claimed, another would show up elsewhere on the map.  It was crazy!

My latest was around 6 am Monday. $6700.

I had a lot of Armored of trucks in my play through in GTAO and I've always noticed how an Armored truck always appear like:
 

a) After start up, when I exit apartment... a Armored Truck appears after a few moments. (Del Perro)

b) After Exiting a LSC ( In Rockford and East Los Santos Branch)

c) After picking up a crate( the one with a green ? on the map). I have 2 instances after picking up a crate in Grapeseed that an Armored Truck comes along. Also when picking up crates in East Los Santos, nearby LSC.

d) Finishing a mission. In Richman after going to Martin's house, one would come along.. happened maybe thrice now.

I moved to Weazel 70 just tonight. Let's see if a) still pushes through.
