The GTA series is known for its massive gameplay, and GTA 5 is no exception – with constant content updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, there is no shortage of new things to do. In this guide, we will specifically focus on the Transporter VIP work, which is a little different from other VIP works as it requires owning a Wastelander vehicle.
GTA Wastelander: Worth it?
The paywall in front of this mission is quite steep, as you will need full armor, full health, a Wastelander, and an Up-n-Atomizer – this means you must spend just under 3.2 million to unlock this VIP work! The Wastelander vehicle alone costs around 659,000, and before you can purchase a vehicle warehouse, you need to own an Executive Officer (CEO) office, which will set you back around a million dollars. Therefore, this mission is certainly not “noob-friendly,” and it requires players to be far along their GTA career to have everything they need to be eligible.
Surprisingly, Transporter VIP work is still one of the cheaper entry points into the specialist vehicle-based VIP work.
How to Start Transporter VIP Work
Assuming you already know how to register as a CEO and how to start a Mission, let’s dive into the Transporter VIP work. To get started on this mission, you will need to start in the southern part of the map, with a Wastelander ready to go. Jump into the Securo Serv section of the interaction menu, and choose VIP Work > Transporter, then start the mission. A new market will pop up on the map for the Wastelander; even if you have your own, the game will insist on issuing you with another one – head on over to it and jump in. A new market will appear on the mini-map, along with the GPS route, and you can start following the route marker.
How to Complete the Mission
After a few moments, you will come under attack from some Rices – these are quick! However, the Wastelander is all-wheel drive, has tons of clearance, and surprisingly capable off-road, even accounting for its high center of gravity. You will come across two main strategies to deal with these attacks.
The first is to place obstacles in front of them, which is easy to do – bump into NPC cars on the way past, and this will cause them to swerve and potentially block traffic. You could also cross over to the other side of the road, which will have more or less the same effect.
The second strategy, when it becomes feasible, is to go off-road. The Wastelander is lively, so you will have to bear that in mind, but when you’re getting overwhelmed or close to a drop-off, find something to climb – a big hill or dirt track, even the side of a mountain – anything with wheel ground clearance and all-wheel drive can help the JDM’s chasing you, who will likely be two-wheel drive low clearance on street or racing tires. The Wastelander can easily leave them in the dust, but bear in mind that as you come down steep drops, the flatbed is bouncy, so take it easy.
Once you have dropped off your vehicle, you will get around 25k, which will be dropped in your account. You will also be booted out of the Wastelander and any remaining enemies will despawn. After that, you’ll have a bit of a cooldown period before you can go again.
