I've been playing since launch, I'm level 110, and I've not once seen an armored truck online.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Yup, never seen one either.

 

Apparently they show up as some sort of blip on the map with a message when your close to one too?

 

They are weirdly scarce.

An Eskimo ice salesman is scarce. These things simply don't exist in my game. lol

Yes a notification pops up whenever one appears and they have a special logo on the map.

 

I attacked one, and have seen a total of probably around 6.

I've been playing since launch, problem free (knock on wood) and am currently level 110, and I've never even seen any notifications about them or their icons on the map.

I feel like I'm missing out bigtime, because I loved robbing them in SP.

It's pretty neat having to fight other players over it, I'll admit that.

 

It's easy money if only you are going for it.

Small world, I guess. :)

I'm level 66 now and I've only seen 2. I robbed one and only got about 5.8k. I've read that some players have got over 12k from them! They are rare but it only takes a second to blow the doors off and get the money. The driver and his partner don't even put up a fight they just drive off and leave you with a 3 star wanted level so it's pretty easy to get clear in the city. 

 

I got lucky earlier, as soon as I came out of my garage an AV drives by and I just thought I'll have some of that. Managed to get back into my garage before the cops arrived.

2 days ago after reaching level 49 I rejoin free mode & respawn in the country & holy sh*t I kept finding armored trucks after armored trucks. I think I found a total of 12 trucks showing up on the map. Didn't get them all cause I had to hide from the cops most of the time while other players got the other trucks. I think they started to notice armored trucks respawning near me cause they were in the city when I got the first 2 trucks.

The time was I think between 16:00-18:00 not far from that bank you rob in story mode with the mini guns.

Go into an invite only session and see does it work then you should get a message straight away about the armoured trucks

Few days ago I had 4 pop up in 15mins. Felt like a glitch though

I can't. I literally spend any time I'm not working or sleeping playing this game.

I see armored trucks all the time. And Lester is always calling me to tell me how easy of a target they are.

Probably luck, I've seen over 10. Robbed 4 but only 2 paid me. I just came from a lobby where 4 armored trucks spawned back to back.

Sometimes they constantly spawn, other days not so much. A couple days ago I played a good bit of the day and came across 6-7. Then a day or two after I only had one. Today I played for maybe 10 minutes and came across one right before I was about to quit.

 

There doesn't seem to be a specific location. They've spawned in the docks by Simeon's place, around Sandy Shores, downtown Los Santos, the highway around Paleto Bay, Del Pierro, etc.

 

When you do find one, if you use the sticky grenade, make sure it's moving and there are no vehicles around it. If the truck blows up you won't gain money. Also, the money bags take a second or two to show up once they've been dropped.

 

I play a lot of Closed Crew Session and I have two full days less than you. I don't know what mode you play, but maybe try that?

I started seeing them @ lvl 24 and i'm only lvl 40. They spawn every 2 game days for me. I timed it during 5 hr session. Now I stopped playing for a while after the update. I don't know WTF they did to the game.

Maybe this will help. I had the same issue. Was level 75 and hadn't seen a single one plus a friend I usually roll with hasn't had any show up either. So one day I was in an invite only session with out club president. I mentioned I hadn't seen any and he said he sees them all the time. After doing a few missions and screwing around, he tells me "Hey check your map!" . Sure enough, there's an armored car moving down the highway near us. I attack it and walk away with just shy of $10,000. All of a sudden I'm seeing them everywhere. Ever since then I see them, less frequently but they are there.

So the other night I tell my friend that I roll with all the time that I finally got one. He still hasn't seen one. After a little while, I point out one on the map. Sure enough it's there on his too. He attacks it and takes the money. Now they show up all the time for him.

If your not getting any to show up try this.

-Invite only session
-Bring someone that has robbed an armored car.
-Have them point out when they see one.
-Make sure you are the one that attacks it and gets the money.

After that they should show up for you. Also remember that if your in a public session you will see less because other people will probably be jumping on the spawns. Also, when you attack when it sends up a session wide message to everyone, so be careful.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!
