Packer in GTA 5




The Packer is a two-door industrial truck manufactured by MTL in GTA V.


The Packer looks a lot like Mack trucks, specifically the Mack Vision CX613. The Packer has had a different look in almost every game in the Grand Theft Auto series. It returns in GTA 5 with a sleeker look and a more dynamic design.

Design and Performance


The design of the Packer is similar to that of a JoBuilt Phantom with a very aerodynamic design. The mirrors appear to be beside the windows unlike the earlier models when they were on the hood. The Packer is found in many single colors applied to the main body, front bumper and rear fenders.


It uses a set of industrial wheels also found on the Benson, the Mule and the Phantom. The Packer shares its body with the Flatbed and the Pounder. They can be found driven on the Great Ocean highway and the eastern highways. The rear bumper and fifth wheel mounting are identical to the Phantom, however, additional rear fenders have been added behind the rear tag axle.





The Packer is power-packed. It has a badge showing that it comes with a 24-valve supercharged engine and it appears to have a V8 engine. The handling and braking are without doubt good. For such power and weight, braking is important and it is well balanced.


Modifications


This vehicle cannot be modified.


Prominent appearance in missions


  1. Minisub - A Packer is used to carry the Submersible that Trevor retrieved from a ship.
  2. Pack Man - A red Packer is used to carry the six stolen sports cars from previous missions. Trevor, Lamar and Franklin were in the vehicle, with Trevor at the steering wheel. After the cops show up, Trevor must evade the police while Franklin protects them in an armed JB 700.
  3. Driller - Any of the three protagonists must steal a Packer that is carrying a trailer loaded with the Cutter. The vehicle is parked inside a secured area, so the protagonist must be stealthy.
  4. The Big Score (Subtle approach) - Two Packers are used as getaway vehicles in the final part of the heist.


Location


  1. Spawns at the Harmony Truck Stop on Joshua Road in Harmony, Blaine County.
  2. Commonly found on the Great Ocean Highway and eastern highways.
  3. Always spawns in front of Beeker's Garage in Paleto Bay.


Trivia


  1. Despite the Packer's 2-person capacity, in the mission Pack Man, it seats three people (Franklin, Trevor, and Lamar).
  2. The Packer's badges incorrectly refer to the engine as a "V24", where it actually means "24 valve", which is supposed to be written as "24v". This also applies to the Flatbed, Brickade and Phantom.
