The Maibatsu MonstroCiti got the entire GTA community buzzing with excitement with its arrival. A car with a strong history in the franchise, this classic SUV, which is based on the 1997-99 Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution, has appeared in several GTA games, including GTA III and GTA IV, as well as another Rockstar game, Manhunt.
Yet, the Maibatsu Monstrosity has been an elusive entity, having been mentioned but never available for players to drive - until now.
The MonstroCiti has arrived in GTA Online alongside the San Andreas Mercenaries update. More importantly, there's a way to get the rugged vehicle for free.
So, if you're wondering how you can get your hands on this highly sought-after truck for free in GTA Online, we've got what you need.
The San Andreas Mercenaries update has also introduced a new wave of GTA+ benefits, one of which includes a free Maibatsu MonstroCiti for members. This new off-road car, a first in its class, offers HSW performance upgrades, available at a price tag of $1,109,000, thereby setting a new benchmark for its category.
The Maibatsu MonstroCiti is only available for free to GTA+ members. However, it's worth noting that only PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S players can sign up for GTA+, which has a monthly subscription of $5.99.
Once signed up, players can claim their free Maibatsu MonstroCiti from the Southern San Andreas Super Autos in-game website or by visiting The Vinewood Car Club in GTA Online San Andreas Mercenaries.
The Maibatsu MonstroCiti boasts an HSW upgrade, making it the fastest off-road car in the game post the San Andreas Mercenaries update. Furthermore, it allows for either Imani Tech modification to be installed, a first for HSW cars in GTA Online.
Prior to the Maibatsu MonstroCiti, only the Weaponized Ignus could simultaneously have HSW and Imani Tech upgrades.
By introducing a VIP experience, including access to the curated stock of distinct vehicles at The Vinewood Car Club, GTA+ has brought more value to its subscribers. Additionally, the subscription service also includes the Avenger Operations Terminal upgrade for undertaking new missions in San Andreas Mercenaries.
The Maibatsu MonstroCiti's reputation precedes it. The vehicle's off-road presence, coupled with the new HSW upgrade, makes it a must-have for GTA+ Members.
Coupled with the exclusive benefits of the GTA+ subscription, including a monthly bonus of GTA$500,000 and a range of other perks and discounts like 2X GTA$ and RP on RC Time Trials and 1.5X GTA$ and RP on Project Overthrow and Hangar Sell Missions, GTA+ members have every bit of a reason to extend their membership.
