Whether it be style, speed or firepower, these rides are sure to satisfy. Here are the ten best vehicles in video games. This list is not ranked in any order.
Magnum Opus – Mad Max
The Magnum Opus is the sole vehicle you use in the 2015 game, Mad Max. After Max loses his previous car, Chumbucket, a bizarre-looking man, gives him this car. As the game progresses, you can build this car into the perfect war machine. There’s a multitude of upgrades you can get for the Magnum Opus and you can change almost anything, from its appearance to the engine.
The Warthog – Halo
You’re undoubtedly very familiar with the iconic Warthog if you’ve played any of the Halo games. This 4×4 beast is equipped with a minigun for offensive capabilities. It’s a fast and tough ride that can conquer any sort of bad terrain. The missions where you get to use one of these bad boys are very entertaining, and there’s even a campaign playlist with only missions where you can ride a Warthog in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. This is a very popular vehicle among gamers.
The Scorpion Tank – Halo
Here’s another pick from the wonderful Halo franchise. The Scorpion is a slow but hard-hitting monster that can turn the tide of battle quickly. You might remember the mission from Halo 2 where you have to eliminate waves of enemy vehicles along a highway. It was such a great and fun mission. The Scorpion is one of the best offensive vehicles the UNSC has.
The Batmobile – Batman: Arkham Knight
The Dark Knight’s car, which is really an overpowered tank, is nigh impossible to stop. The only game where you can ride in this monster is the brilliant Batman Arkham Knight, which still holds up insanely well. The manner in which the Batmobile destroys everything in its path like they were sand castles at a beach emphasizes the power of this vehicle. This beast is part of why Arkham Knight is so good.
Buffalo – Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Honestly, any vehicle from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas could’ve taken this place on this list. The vehicles of Grand Theft Auto games are many and they are really up to personal preference than anything. But let’s talk about the muscle car Buffalo. Its look is somewhat rugged and it’s a great racing car. Install the correct upgrades and this car will be a sight to behold.
Truffade Adder – Grand Theft Auto V
Clearly, Truffade Adder was directly inspired by the Bugatti Veyron. This car is a rare one in GTA V‘s story mode, but you can find one parked in Rockford Hills sometimes. That’s one of the easiest ways to get the car. Truffade Adder is an extremely fast and powerful car, making it an ideal choice for high-speed chases and street races.
Phoenix – Saints Row The Third
The Phoenix is one of the coolest and fastest cars in the entire Saints Row franchise. It has a rugged look that resembles a muscle car. But like in the GTA games, the options in Saints Row are many, and there are other vehicles that some of you may prefer over this. But there is no denying that the Phoenix is an insanely powerful and stylish car. Like all other vehicles, it can be heavily customized too. If you play this game today, we recommend Saints Row The Third Remastered.
Villefort Alvarado “Vato” – Cyberpunk 2077
Villefort Alvarado “Vato” is a unique variant of the Alvarado V4FC 580 Playboy, which is also a great-looking and fast car. This customized version with a beautiful paint job can be obtained by completing Beat on the Brat: The Glen side mission. As you can see from the screenshot, this is a beautiful (if not gaudy) car that will serve you well all throughout the game.
Light Runner – Borderlands 2
Light Runner is very easy to get and is quite common. But this dune buggy’s unique design and its firepower make it a great vehicle that deserves a spot on this list. Light Runner is a fast and tough car that can easily handle bad terrain. There’s also nitro for you to get bursts of speed and outrun enemies. The two guns on the vehicle allow you to rip through almost anything that’s in your way.
Mercedes AMG One – Forza Horizon 5
The AMG One is one of the cars you get to drive at the very beginning of the game. This absolute beast of a car can later be obtained from the Autoshow. It’s one of the fastest cars in the entire game and it’s totally worth owning. Like the McLaren Senna from Forza Horizon 4, the AMG One is the car from the game’s poster. It can be heavily customized to make it even more powerful.
