"Reinforced armor plating and multiple machine-guns makes this a great vehicle for setting up roadblocks, or just bullying your way through traffic. Best of all, the VZ version will let you get past most VZ roadbloacks with ease!"

The Capuchin Guntruck is a heavy truck used by the Venezuelan Army for defensive roles. It is identical to the Bolivar Guntruck used by the People's Liberation Army of Venezuela in almost every way, albeit without the excessive use of barbwire and spikes as well as the different paint jobs.

The Capuchin Guntruck is armed with two .50 caliber machine guns each with a 360º coverage, one facing forward in the front, the other facing behind at the back of the vehicle. The front MG can only be accessed by entering through the passenger seat, the rear MG can be accessed by climbing up the ladder on the side or by finding another way to get on top.

It can be very commonly found in VZ roadblocks and driving around in Merida. It can always be seen in smuggling contracts for the Pirates when the VZ and a land route are involved. It can be purchased from the Pirates.

The Capuchin Gunstruck is valuable around the first half of the game, as its armor is invulnerable to small arms fire and is has two machine guns for defense, and possibly offence if the player chooses to attack lightly guarded enemy outposts or patrols. However the gun truck lacks speed and therefore does not have good purpose as a 'get-away' vehicle.

The .50 caliber guns can deliver heavy damage to soft targets such as infantry and type 1 to weak type 2 armor vehicles, but they do however, struggle against stronger type 2 armored vehicles and helicopters.

The vehicle has type 2 armor which gives it invulnerability to small arms fire such as assault rifles, but it is very vulnerable to damage from minguns, rockets, Anti-Tank missiles and explosives.



  • The Capuchin Guntruck is named after the Capuchin monkey. VZ vehicles are named after animals found in Central America and the Amazon.
  • A player has experienced difficulties acquiring the vehicle by using support. Ewan, the pilot who delivers supplies and vehicles for the mercenary, may never deliver the Guntruck. Instead, he can be seen dropping the Guntruck in mid-air some distance away from the player when he spawns and then disappears with the winch extended.
  • The machineguns can fire through the vehicle without harming it.
