Overview

The SWAT Van is a vehicle that can be driven only by players who have purchased the SWAT Gamepass, and can be acquired at the far right of the parking lot in the Prison. It travels at a "medium" speed and can hold up to 4 players: the driver, one passenger next to the driver, one (With the SWAT Gamepass) which can sit in the top area of the vehicle and use the turret/minigun, and another person who can sit on the rear seat and also use firearms and/or items. The handling is also very great, splendid for pursuing criminals (as this vehicle was intended to do). While slow compared to other cars, its large mass allows it to perform stunt jumps at much slower speed than other faster cars like the Lamborghini or Bugatti, and also block off a passage so a hostile car is not able to pass. For the players who can't afford the Monster Truck yet, the SWAT Van turns out to be really good for train robberies. The height of this vehicle can be used to jump on the Train rather easily. It has 4 normal seats and a special on the roof.

At first, only somebody with a keycard could drive it out of the prison, as it is the only place it spawns. But now, there is a ramp in the prison, so you are able to just drive on it and use rocket fuel to get it outside of the Prison. However, this is still a problem for people that don't have Rocket Fuel. When several SWAT Vans combine, they make quite the roadblock for any incoming criminals.
