Grand Theft Auto Online, the ever-evolving multiplayer world, has introduced a thrilling new feature in its latest Chop Shop DLC: the ability to own and customize police vehicles.
This guide will walk you through how to unlock these coveted vehicles and add them to your collection.
Why Unlocking Police Cars Matters
Owning police cars in GTA Online isn’t just about the novelty; it’s a unique opportunity to enhance your gameplay experience. These vehicles offer new customization options and can be a game-changer in missions and free-roam activities. Whether you’re a seasoned player or new to the game, unlocking these vehicles is a must-try experience.
How to Unlock Police Cars in GTA Online
To unlock the police vehicles in GTA Online’s Chop Shop DLC, you need to complete specific tasks. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to do:
Unmarked Cruiser: To unlock the Unmarked Cruiser, you must complete the Gang Bang Robbery as a leader for the trade price. Alternatively, you can unlock it by surviving a three-star wanted level or higher for 5 minutes straight.
Cruiser: The Cruiser can be unlocked by scoping out the mission R police station as part of the Gang Bang Robbery. This is relatively straightforward, especially since it’s the third contract on your computer during the launch week.
Police Riot Van: For the Police Riot trade price, get the technical gear during the Gang Bang Robbery as a leader. To buy it outright, lose a four or five-star wanted level naturally.
Tips for Successfully Unlocking the Vehicles
Getting a High Wanted Level: A quick way to get a four-star wanted level is to fly a helicopter near the prison and then fly away. This will instantly give you the required wanted level.
Surviving the Wanted Level: Use an armored vehicle like the Karuma and head to the Los Santos River or the sewers. Wait there until your time is up, then lose the police through the sewer system. Stay as far from the sewer entrance as possible to avoid the police following you in.
Customizing Your Police Cars
Once you’ve unlocked these vehicles, you can customize them at any of your properties, like your agency, CEO office, MOC, auto shop, or arena. Note that Los Santos Customs and the Los Santos Car Meet won’t allow you to customize these vehicles.
- Unmarked Cruiser: Offers basic customization options, primarily engine upgrades.
- Regular Cruiser: Allows for extensive customization, including liveries and additional headlights.
Unlocking and customizing police vehicles in GTA Online’s Chop Shop DLC adds a new layer of excitement and variety to the game. Follow these steps, and you’ll be patrolling the streets of Los Santos in your very own police cruiser in no time!
