Are you struggling to find the GTA Gun Van location today, or are you just simply wondering what weapons are inside the van or when the rail gun is going to be in the van? Whatever your question, all the answers are below including the location, when the inventory refreshes, what weapons are inside the van and more. 

We've tried to make it much easier for you as well, including a map that will help you pinpoint the location of the van today, which I have physically confirmed by going to the location in GTA today on April 14th, 2024.

You're able to scroll through the image carousel above, using the arrows on either side of the image. The Gun Van is located on the second image of the carousel today, in the west of the city. The location is marked as number 23 on our map above, courtesy of Map Genie.

If you don't see a marker on your map, don't worry - the Gun Van only appears on your map when you are close to it.

Head to the location detailed above, and as you get close, you should see the icon on your map. Once you do, you should have no issue finding the exact location.

When does the Gun Van inventory refresh?

The Gun Van inventory refreshes each week alongside the GTA Online weekly update, which takes place on Thursday mornings, usually between 9 and 11 AM BST. For our US friends, this translates to the very early hours of Thursday morning.

Can you get the Railgun from the Gun Van?

The simple answer is yes, but not always. The Railgun is not currently available from the Gun Van.

One of the highlights of the introduction of the Gun Van was that you could purchase the Railgun there. It was not previously available outside of special events, and it cannot be purchased at Ammu-Nation.

After a period of time, the Railgun was eventually removed from the Gun Van inventory. This was because the weapons available at the Gun Van began to rotate, meaning there would be different stock available each week.

As such, the Railgun is not always available from the Gun Van, but you can still purchase it for $730,000 (minus the Gun Van discount) when it appears in the inventory.

That's for our GTA Online Gun Van location guide, telling you where it can be found today alongside the current inventory available. For more, head to our GTA homepage, or check out our guide to the fastest cars & motorbikes in GTA 5 Online.
