Pointless Vehicles Not Worth Unlocking In GTA Online


  • Just because a vehicle is pointless doesn’t mean it won’t offer some entertainment value in GTA Online.
  • Some vehicles, like the Blimp and Dump Truck, are slow-moving targets that serve little practical purpose.
  • Players may purchase these vehicles just to flex their wealth and show off to others in the game.

GTA Online has lots of different vehicles that players can buy, steal, and earn. Some are fast and have weapons attached, while others don’t really have a lot going for them. While useless vehicles can still offer some level of player amusement, they are still pretty pointless in the grand scheme of things.

The following vehicles aren’t likely to help anyone complete a mission or get away from the cops, but for those who want to waste some money, they might offer a little bit of entertainment. Out of all the vehicles in the game, there are a handful that stand out for their all-around pointlessness.


GTA 5: Best Mounted Weapons For Vehicles

The best mounted weapons for vehicles in Grand Theft Auto 5 are the ones that ensure destruction and chaos to Los Santos.

Updated May 20, 2024, by Benjamin Joe: GTA Online has no shortage of vehicles that don’t really do a lot. From buses to dump trucks, if players want to splash the cash, then there are lots of vehicles they can buy. Showing off is a big part of GTA Online, whether it’s with rare outfits, top-notch apartments, or random and sometimes bizarre vehicles. With that in mind, there is an additional vehicle that deserves to be on this list, so an update was needed to showcase this expensive purchase. Some veteran players may already own every vehicle on this list. That’s the ultimate flex in GTA Online.

9 Rental Shuttle Bus

A Fun But Pointless Vehicle

Shuttle Rental in GTA 5 Online

The Rental Shuttle Bus is the cheapest vehicle here at just $30,000. While it is a fun and unique vehicle, it doesn’t serve much purpose in the game.

It’s a Pegasus vehicle, so players will need to call it in every time they want to use it. It can be a fun vehicle to carry friends around in, so it isn’t completely useless. The fact that it’s so cheap is also a big plus. Overall, while it isn’t particularly useful, it doesn’t hurt the bank balance too badly. So it can be a good option for those looking to have some fun with friends.

8 MTL Dune

Only A Two-Seater

The Dune in GTA 5 Online

  • Price: $1,300,000 – $1,385,000

The Dune is a costly off-road Pegasus vehicle with very few uses. It is built in a similar way to the Brickade, but it doesn’t have the same level of stability. With it being such a large vehicle, players assumed that it would have more than just two seats, but it doesn’t.


GTA Online: 10 Best Off-Road Vehicles & How Much They Cost

GTA Online is comprised of a lot of choices and open activities, one being which car players want to drive. These are the best for off-road.

The back of the vehicle isn’t accessible and serves no purpose. It’s a slow vehicle that doesn’t have a lot going for it. That said, it can be fun to go around ramming into other cars with a friend and causing mayhem.

7 Buses

It’s Easier To Steal A Bus

Airport Bus in GTA 5 Online

  • Price: $500,000 – $550,000

Buses are Pegasus vehicles. This means that they can’t be stored in player garages. They also can’t be modified. There are a couple of variants that players can purchase. They start at $500,000. While they aren’t the most expensive vehicles in the game, buses offer very few uses for players.

It is much easier to steal a bus than it is to buy it, call Pegasus, and head to its drop-off point. It can be fun to drive around in a bus, especially if the player has friends on the same server. But it isn’t that useful.

6 Blimp

A Slow-Moving Target

The Blimp in GTA 5 Online

The Blimp was introduced as part of the After Hours update in 2018. There are a few different styles that the player can purchase. But, ultimately, it is just a standard Blimp. The Blimp can be fun to fly, but it doesn’t really have any uses. It is used for one of the nightclub popularity missions, but the player doesn’t need to own a Blimp to do this mission.

It has an initial price of $1,190,350, which makes it a costly aerial vehicle with very few benefits. It does come equipped with unlimited flares, which is a big plus since it is a slow-moving target.

5 Dump Truck

Zero Practical Uses

Dump Truck in GTA 5 Online

The Dump Truck is a bit of a meme vehicle. While it is one of the largest land vehicles that players can buy, it has a max speed of just 31 mph (49.9 kph).

With a price tag of $1,000,000, this vehicle doesn’t do much. It is a Pegasus vehicle, so it can’t be modified, and it doesn’t fit on any of the city roads. That’s not to say the vehicle is all bad. It can be fun watching players look in awe while passing them in a massive Dump Truck.

4 Buckingham Swift Deluxe

Bold And Gold

The Buckingham Swift Deluxe is a gold version of the Swift. While it is one of the fastest helicopters in the game, the standard version works just as well as the gold version. The only real differences are the color and the price.



GTA Online: Every Arena War Vehicle, Ranked

The Arena War workshop introduced some incredibly unique vehicles to the game. Here’s how they all rank.

The Buckingham Swift Deluxe costs a whopping $5,150,000, making it one of the most expensive non-weaponized vehicles in the game. This helicopter is used as a way for players to show how wealthy they are. But, it serves little practical purpose in the game.

3 Vapid Slamtruck

A Disappointing Vehicle

Slam Truck in GTA 5 Online

When this vehicle was announced back in late 2020, players were excited. It looked like a vehicle that would allow them to haul cars and perform stunts thanks to its ramp-like shape.

But when it was released, it was slow, clunky, expensive, and pretty useless. Like a lot of vehicles mentioned already, players who buy it tend to only do so to flex to other players, showing off how much money they have. The most useful thing about this vehicle is that it’s used to showcase the prize vehicle at the Car Meet.

2 Buckingham Luxor Deluxe

For The Players That Have It All

The Deluxe Luxor in GTA 5 Online

Similar to the Swift Deluxe, the Buckingham Luxor Deluxe is just a gold version of a generic vehicle. Without any discounts, this plane comes with a hefty $10,000,000 price tag. Other than it being gold, it doesn’t have any differences when compared to the generic version. The only reason why players buy this plane is to show off.

This plane is the dictionary definition of the phrase “because I can.” Other than flying around and showing off to other players, there’s no benefit to owning this plane. Just be warned that players who see this plane tend to try and blow it up as a way to silence the wealthy! So, always bring a parachute when flying, just in case.

1 Super Yacht

A Huge Flex

Price: $6,000,000 – $10,000,000

The yacht is useless in gta online and only has a few missions that don't pay well

When it comes to showing off in GTA Online, there’s one purchase a player can make that really shows others how much wealth they have to throw around. That purchase is the Super Yacht. It’s big, it’s flashy, and, well, it doesn’t do much else. It does unlock a few missions, and players can do Privacy Prevention to earn a few dollars, but that’s about it. That said, in a game that is all about showing off, affluent players love to sink the full $10,000,000 into the yacht just to show other players that they can afford it.

Before buying a yacht, it’s important to note that there are daily fees attached to it. So, once it’s been purchased, it will continuously cost the player money. But putting that aside, for those who have purchased all the businesses, and own all the super cars, they might as well purchase a Super Yacht with all the trimmings.
