"Ironically named light armored personnel vehicle. Perfect for crushing small rebellions in a dictatorship or wiping out peaceful protests in an alleged democracy."
Warstock Cache & Carry description.

The HVY Insurgent is an LAPV featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Heists Update.

Design

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Insurgent is a SUV-like Light Armored Personnel Vehicle (LAPV) that is inspired by the Terradyne Armored Vehicles and NIMR LLC line of tactical armored vehicles, characterized by the roof-rails, hood details, rounded headlights, roof hatch and front bumper, with some influences from the Conquest Knight XV (especially the single-door rear entrance and a small grille above the main radiator grille, where the hood is slightly pronounced). The design of the front and sides are very likely to have been influenced by the Alpine Armoring Pitbull VX. The general shape of the greenhouse area seems to take influence from the Oshkosh Sandcat. It is also based, to a lesser extent, on the Marauder, due to the raised suspension, the semi-squared door windows, and a similar tail lights scheme. The underside features a sump guard just under where the engine would be at the front.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto Online

In terms of overall performance, the acceleration is somewhat lacking due to its heavy weight, but it has an acceptable top speed. The Insurgent's immense weight helps to keep it grounded when cornering, and contributes to it having good handling for a vehicle of its stature. It has a decent cornering radius and understeer is relatively minor. The Insurgent is abnormally sensitive in the air, and may be prone to crash landings if the user is not careful. However, it is able to quickly recover from rolling over. Though the engine model or bay cannot be seen, the sound is similar to that of the Landstalker's, but slightly smoother, coupled to a 6-speed gearbox in a front engine, all-wheel drive layout.

The Insurgent's sheer weight means that it is a formidable vehicle towards other players. The Insurgent can cripple or even disable many other road vehicles if given a direct hit at full speed, and will usually run over lighter cars, deforming them and often breaking wheels or axles. It also seems to have a degree of top-heaviness that is evident while airborne, however it makes up for it by being able to recover abnormally fast from a rollover, relative to its class. It can also ram parked vehicles and continue to drive without any noticeable damage, and it will only show body deformation after a large number of collisions.

The Insurgent has large windshields and windows, making their occupants vulnerable to gunfire from the front, and despite the fact that there is a barrier between the rear seats and the covered compartment, players can still be shot through it.

The Insurgent can take the following:

  • 3-4 Sticky Bombs.
  • 1 Tank Shell from a Rhino Tank cannon (a 2nd one will destroy it).
  • 4 vehicle based rockets.
  • 2 direct Rocket Launcher shots and one splash damage.
  • 20-25 seconds of constant Minigun fire, aimed directly at the engine.

Trivia

  • The Insurgent and Insurgent Pick-Up's textures are named "dillo", likely short for Armadillo. This is likely the vehicle's beta name.[2]
  • Neither variant of the Insurgent has an engine model due to the bonnet/hood being impossible to open or remove. This is also the case for the Zentorno.
  • It should be noted that when the player is driving in a GTA Online free-roam lobby, the player will appear as a "turreted vehicle" blip on the radar which is visually similar to the Insurgent itself, regardless of which variant they are driving. This is intended to warn nearby players of the Insurgent's presence as a 'dangerous vehicle', as the Insurgent's durability, speed and sheer weight make it difficult to destroy.
    • This would be also an oversight, as, despite not having any sort of weapon, handling files suggests it has the same item as its armed counterpart.
  • Strangely, despite being a lot lighter than the Rhino Tank in the handling files, the Cargobob can barely even lift the Insurgent off the ground, unlike the Rhino Tank. This puts its weight in excess of 60 tons.
  • When the Heists Update was first released, the Insurgent, when purchased, would have maxed (100%) armor (with there not even being an "armor" customization tab at mod shops), bulletproof tires already installed, and players within it could not be shot out from the rear. However, the 100% armor and bulletproof rear panel features were removed in later updates, though it still has bulletproof tires by default.
  • Upon release of the Heists Update, both versions of the Insurgent had a minor glitch where the front wheels received 4% of the power from the engine. This was fixed in the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update, so the Insurgent's front wheels receive 40% of the power instead.
  • After the Festive Surprise 2015 Update, opening all doors using the 'Vehicle Doors' feature in the enhanced version will no longer open the rear door.
  • The Insurgent cannot have a crew emblem fitted in Los Santos Customs.
  • The Insurgent seems to have a missing exhaust system as fumes can be seen coming out from one of the bottom side body panels. This is the same case with the Albany Roosevelt.
