Armored Truck Locations in Single Player

Recommended Posts

chrisscorsese88

Okay, first off I'm new here and not sure if this is the right place to put this thread, so if anyone feels it needs to be moved, please do. Secondly, of all the videos on YouTube or any random website regarding the locations of the armored trucks in single player have all been false, at least for me. So I figured I would make my own list of locations. These times have been recorded on my single player file the moment it happened. Now I know this list obviously isn't near complete as there are a total of 10 security vans, but as I discover more locations, I will update this list.

 

So far, the only locations I got are as follows;

 

Location Day of Week Time of Day

1. Little Seoul* Friday ~8:45

 

2.

 

3. Paleto Bay Ammunation Saturday ~18:00

 

4. La Puerta** Tuesday ~12:00

 

5.

 

6.

 

7.

 

8.

 

9.

 

10.

 

*Located slightly northwest of Franklin's Grove Street Garage
**Located slightly northwest of Security Van 1

 

P.S. According to the Rockstar Games Social Club website which links to your in-game progress, the security vans are labeled "Security Van 1, Security Van 2, etc." at specific locations. My list will be ordered based on that data.

 

P.P.S. If anyone recorded the day and time of other vans located in single player themselves and I confirm it on my save, I will add it to the list, as this will help the list become complete faster than me just randomly doing my own thing until it pops up.

 

Feel free to ask questions or comment. :)

Good topic, but it might be better to have your list the same as the Social Club website as a lot of people refer to that when searching for a truck they are yet to find. But having said that, most of the locations marked on their site are off by at least a block or two.

 

I'd already found all the vans (based on RGSC website) except Van 5 which was driving me nuts until I stumbled upon it yesterday so I thought I'd take a pic for future reference

It's just a snap with me phone as I don't have a capture device but thought it might help. It was a Sunday morning (in game) about 7.30 am. I'm stumbling upon these vans quite regularly so I'll make a note of them from now on.

I suppose I can always just re-order it, but what seems strange to me is that I just came across the Little Seoul armored truck again, but instead of appearing at the time I have down, it appeared Friday (the day before) at around 8:45. I was Trevor when it appeared then, but I was Michael when it appeared for me on Saturday. I'm just wondering if armored trucks appear more than once a week at the same location or if it all depends on the character you're playing as.

I couldn't find the correct locations when I was trying to build money up before the first assassination since they removed the ocean money cases.

I see a lot people saying times and locations that for myself never worked. I marked it all down on the map you get when purchasing the game for van, money cases, random encounters and etc myself. So I know where everything pops up just didn't put the times..

Took these from the guide . The red circles with white dots are the security van locations . Sorry if they are kinda small .

It was not easy to get all of these to spawn . I think they may be tied in to other random events ...If you do one or the other then the other may not spawn for a certain amount of days .

 

The best way I found to spawn these is as follows .

Take trevor home , lay in bed 15 times to let a ingame week pass .

Take a taxi directly to the locations and hope they spawn .

If they dont spawn try going back home via taxi sleep one time then go back to the same spot again via taxi and keep repeating till it spawns . I say Taxi because you dont wanna accidentally start another random event

 

 

Yellow with black are atm robberies

Guns are stores you can rob

Numbers are random events

I can confirm:

Security Van no.5 (Vespucci canals) is spawning between 7: 30 and 9:00

Security Van no.3 (Paleto Bay) is spawning at 20:00

Security Van no.6 (La Puerta Fwy) is spawning at 12:30

Security Van no.4 (Korean Plaza) is spawning between 18:15 and 19:30

Security Van no.2 (Lucky Plucker) is spawning at 18:30

Security Van no.10 (Supply St) is spawning at 10:30

Security Van no.8 (Great Ocean Hwy) is spawning at 10:30

Security Van no.1 (near Franklin's house) is spawning at 07:00

I noticed in sjaak327 ST on the teleportation menu in the other teleport menu 10 security van locations in it, but so far when I've used these teleport location in his trainer nothing is there, but it might be tied to certain times of day when they spawn or show up!..

 

 

see spoiler tag for in game image of menu

I'm 100% sure that, either upon game completion or repeated robbery of a few vans, they stop spawning. I've not heard if intentional or if it's a bug that stops them from spawning, but it makes no sense to stop them as they add extra stuff to do.

they spawn at anytime of the day. but only once per week. so if it spawns but you ignore it, it won't spawn again for another week.

Robbing Armoured Trucks is really a waste of time, for a lousy payout. :miranda:

Just go dive for the $25.000 briefcase (or all briefcases), if you need ca$h. :blink:

I haven't seen an armored truck anywhere in months

Me too, also half of random events too, then I started new game and play it in certain order, now everything is ok.

Some of the random events only happen at certain times of the day, Ursula the hitcher on the dirt road near a log pile, only shows in the evening's around 6pm or later and sometimes you have to circle around and return on that dirt road tell she appears and the tinkle guy hitchhiker only shows after Trevors get's the submarine for the merryweather heist and before noon and the drunk driver near Floyd's place only shows in the evening's

I think the best idea is to go through the entire game, with auto save off, and never do any of the random events (except the ones that help you for heists) then finish the game, save it one last time then never save again and just mess around with the events actually spawning

The best idea would be for Rockstar to fix their sh*t so the random events work properly

I understand certain random events not spawning after completing them but they should fix it i agree

i figuired it out how it works in single player.

I red lot of comment (youtube and maybe on this forum) that if u robbed couple of times it didnt spawn or very rarely.Also red on gtawiki that if u robbed more times the amount of the robbed money is rising but it will be more hard to find spawned armored trucks.Its not true.

 

I use 3 locations, but most of the times only two: The lucky plucker and the korean plaza.(and the third location is the dude posted upper me under the highway)

So i can find loading truck in every 4th day.(if u robbed monday, go back there in friday)The time almost doesnt matter.I usually go for it 6am-11 am and i can find the truck while it loading up.

Sometime when i go to lucky plucker first there is near to it an atm, and sometimes it has a robbery random event, this time wont show up the truck in at the lucky plucker, i go to korean plaza, and there are the dudes.

The money is rising 4-5 times (to 9000) and then it will be again 4000-4500 and rising again.
