Well that looks fun :p Just hoping now that it's decently fast and have armored windows! And I don't see weapons, could this be the first tracked vehicle in the game that can be had without weapons?

Takes 5 RPGs or 6 missiles to blow up while occupied. Weapons are bad (but you can use your own weapons) and you're exposed to bullets (it has a BP back, but there are better choices).

 

It's also reasonably quick for a tracked vehicle (~75 mph, if the speedo isn't one of the lying ones), has good off-road capability (not APC-tier though, not even close), and rams well. A fun vehicle.

As usual for R* style they have included a luxury military vehicle, this time the Scarab which is mainly based on the Ripsaw, a, as you should imagine, luxury vehicle, self-called super tank. It's present in movies like G.I. Joe 2 and F&F 8.

Shame it didn't get a CROWS like it did in F&F though.

Well, @Mattoropael it's expected to be less "weponized" knowing it's based on the luxury civilian version of the Ripsaw instead of the military version. It's a mixture actually but inclined to the street version anyways specially to avoid the remote controlled feature.

I think it didn't got a CROWS like the Weaponized Tampa because that would have make it overpowered on Arena War.

 

If this vehicle was released before, it would feature such, well, feature.

They get different cosmetic parts, liveries, and some baseline cosmetic differences.

 

For example, Apocalypse gets all the "rusty" looking parts, and the most outrageous bandit-looking spikes, and rusty camouflage liveries; Future Shock (which is the one in my photo above) on the other hand gets very clean parts, with some glowing parts controlled by Accent color, and access to a laser machine gun (Apocalypse only gets to choose between rusty and clean .50 cal).

A I see.

But they all got the same fixed gun (would prefer a pivotable turret with regular ammo) and can all look like a regular military vehicle?

Not sure about Nightmare (never tried that one), but Future Shock has clean parts for the futuristic look that IMHO the Scarab fits better with, but has non-removable glowing parts. Apocalypse on the other hand has military camouflage and all, but all that rust just looks weird on the Scarab.

 

And yes, they all have the same fixed gun. Future Shock's laser MG is just a different skin AFAIK.

Well I guess I'm either going with Apocalypse and remove the rust or find out what nightmare does. 

Definitly no glowy parts for me.

 

Thx for the help.

I got curious and bought a Nightmare, and I have this to say: Don't.

 

It has non-removable funny colors that make a Chrome Adder look good.

Neon pink, green and blue. Can't be painted over, you're just stuck with them, and most of the cosmetic parts have them as well.

28 shots to destroy using explosive rounds from Pump Shotgun Mk.2 or Heavy Sniper Rifle Mk.2. That's when it's not occupied. 

 

It puts it on the same level as the Hauler Custom and Phantom Custom cabs*. 
*more testing with other weapons required.

Edit - just saw some RPG info. Interesting, unique armour on this one then perhaps.

So what's the actual reason to buy this... thing? APC can swim and sports a third most powerful gun in the game (Orbital - AA Flak - APC), Khanjali offers machine guns and grenade launchers. Am I missing something? Especially considering that even NPCs can shoot you out of it.

If you don't play the new Arena mode? "It's pretty" and "It's fun to drive" are the only options.

Say hello to my little friend.

 

This thing is incredible. I does not give a single f*ck what kind of ground it is driving on, it just pulls through without slowing down.

If it hits a ramp, it jumps like a normal car, but when it lands, it lands like a tank. No loss of controll, no bouncing around, no bullsh*t.

Speedbumps and small walls? Pff, it just goes over them like they are not there.

This is officially my new daily driver, along with my FIB Granger replica.

I went into this thinking it'd be a Scarab from the Halo series.

 

I wasn't that far off. Cool.

Tell me guys, this may be an off-topic post, but I just have to ask... am I the only GTAO player that doesn't care about crappy weapons, performance flags and too high prices for vehicles and just buys them to look at them, drive them and have fun? Seems to me, that majority of GTAO players just moan about all cars being bad, and it just takes away fun from other players, such as myself. Is it so hard to be happy about this game still being supported by devs after such a long time?

Anyone know if this takes up a regular garage space or a large one in the arena?

I like your positivism, really :) Well I can't speak for others but I tend to moan when something about a given vehicle is fundamentally wrong in my eyes. Take my favorite example, the Tyrant: oversized, overpowered yet held down to uselessness, overpriced for what it is in the end. All of this in a car that would be awesome in every area had it been done right. So yeah, I like to hate on this one :p

 

Then there's lots of other bullsh*ts too. But overall I try to be as positive as I can be. The handling flags are disgraceful for me because since only the new vehicles have them that takes away every chance of having a truly competitive machine with future updates. Thankfully though, Rockstar showed us now that it's a work in progress, that they will eventually get right at some point. Or at least I hope so.

 

I'm really digging the Scarab, this is one I might actually buy not for just battle at the arena :D Anyone mind telling the price? I won't be able to access the game until tomorrow :(
