Wrecks (not to be confused with Beaters, which are run down versions of vehicles that can still be driven but with reduced performance) are unusable (prop) versions of land sea and air vehicles found around the maps of all the Grand Theft Auto games since Grand Theft Auto III, except Grand Theft Auto Advance.

History

Wrecks have been featured in certain forms beginning in Grand Theft Auto III, where scrapped cars and school buses of unknown origins are scattered in various junkyards; GTA III's scrapped vehicles are also featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, although such wrecks may also be sighted in a wider range of locations. The first known drivable vehicle to appear as a wrecked prop is the Walton in GTA San Andreas, where a rusting Walton is present in rural San Andreas. HD Universe titles see the vast majority of wrecks based on existing vehicles in the game. Some of the wrecks in these games can be seen piled up, with a plank leaning on them, forming the base of unique stunt jumps.
