Dominate the illegal arms trade in Southern San Andreas with Gunrunning, the latest update to Grand Theft Auto: Online. Your career as a prolific arms dealer begins with the acquisition of a Bunker. These underground fortresses serve as your base of operations for all Gunrunning activities, and each one is equipped with a computer terminal to tap into the Disruption Logistics network.
Start a Setup mission as a CEO, MC President or a VIP to source supplies, then assign your employees to manufacturing weapons, researching upgrades or split their time between the two. Your stock will grow over time (and more quickly with Staff upgrades) and when ready, reap the profits from your business by moving your merchandise to interested buyers across Los Santos and Blaine County. To ease the entry into this underground network for new would-be entrepreneurs, the required collateral to register as a VIP has been lowered to a $50,000 minimum Maze Bank balance.
This subterranean lair also comes with a suite of comforts and options. Once you’ve chosen your property from Maze Bank Foreclosures, you can pick from a range of styles. Add a shooting range (and compete against up to 3 other players), personal quarters, a gun locker and bespoke transportation options.
When you’re ready to escalate your operation, the Bunker can store a fully road-ready Mobile Operations Center. These massive rolling strongholds are available from Warstock Cache and Carry, and serve as another property in your portfolio - complete with options for three modular bays that can be assigned to tactical services like a Command Center, personal amenities like Living Quarters, or in-house customization workshops like the two-bay Weapon & Vehicle Workshops, or the modest Personal Vehicle Storage.
A brand new class of motorized mayhem. Six armed military-grade death machines offer a range of creative solutions to destroying your opposition in any combat situation, each fully customizable with exclusive mods unlocked by your Research Staff and applied in the Vehicle Workshop module:
– A heavy duty armored personnel carrier equipped with a turret-mounted cannon that tears through metal like a hot knife through butter. Portholes offer vantages for small arms fire for up to four heavily armed mercenaries while the armored hull can conduct combat anywhere across both land and water. Available upgrades include SAM Battery and dropping Proximity Mines for pursuers to discover.
- Built for post-apocalyptic doomsday enthusiasts, this lightweight, armored sandrail features a dash-mounted machine gun, and is the kind of stylish transport that will slap the slack jaws off the Yellow Jack parking lot loiterers. Upgrade options include a 40mm Grenade Launcher, 7.62mm Minigun and Proximity Mines.
– Who says you can’t have your 4 layer quad cannon shaped cake and eat it too? Wield the all-terrain capabilities of a tank, with all the advantages of a super-loaded truck: straightforward handling, a spacious cabin, and lots of fresh air for the lunatic on the .50 cal in the back. Swap that .50 cal for Quad 20mm Autocannons and add Proximity Mines from your MOC’s Vehicle Workshop.
– It’s a motorcycle that flies. As if you need to know anything else, this rocket-powered hyperbike offers all your principles of flight in one package; thrust, extendable wings for lift and drag, and a front-mounted machine gun for good, clean fun. Poor aim? Upgrade the machine gun to Missiles.
- The familiar muscle car gets a weaponized facelift now supporting a top-mounted Minigun and industrial-grade armor. Upgrades include Front Missile Launchers, Rear-Firing Mortar and Proximity Mines.
- What you choose to reduce to smoking rubble with this thing is your business, and the sky is most definitely not the limit. Comes towed by a Vapid Sadler as standard, and artillery can be upgraded to Dual 20mm Autocannons or a Homing Missile Battery.
This new breed of mobile weaponry means a whole new frontier of criminal enterprise. As you complete supply missions and as your Gunrunning business flourishes, unlock and launch Mobile Operations from your Mobile Operations Center. Complete each to unlock the Warstock Trade Price.
MK II WEAPONS UPGRADES
A huge range of tactical customizations are made possible by MK II upgrades available exclusively from your Mobile Operation Center’s Weapon Workshop. MK II variants of the Pistol, SMG, Heavy Sniper, Combat MG, Assault Rifle and Carbine Rifle deliver a wealth of options including new magazines packing tracer, incendiary, armor piercing, hollow point and other types of rounds. Add Night Vision, Holographic and Thermal Scopes, new grips, suppressors, Muzzle Brakes, Liveries, Tints and much more.
NEW CLOTHES, TATTOOS & HAIRCUTS
This season, the boutiques and salons of Los Santos are ready to kit you out in the very latest in mercenary survivalist chic: camo parkas, ex-military berets, heavy duty combat boots, menacing tats, and buzzcuts.
BONUS UNLOCKS, DISCOUNTS & MORE
Head over the Social Club Events page
for details on all of this week's weapons, vehicle and ammo discounts as well as a number of exclusive clothing unlocks, including the new white Hawk & Little Hoodie (pictured above) and an in-game version of the Rockstar Class of '98 Tee that was recently added to the Rockstar Warehouse collection. Plus, stay tuned to the Newswire over the coming days for details on the Gunrunning Snapmatic Contest, Rockstar Editor Contest, Social Club Sweepstakes & plenty more!

To thrive as an arms dealer in GTA Online: Gunrunning, it’s going to take more than street smarts. Choose your supporting vehicles and armaments wisely for your best chance to outwit both the feds and any rival dealers. Start moving weapons to eager buyers in Los Santos or Blaine County to earn a tidy profit and tap into powerful new upgrades, modifications and heavy duty weaponry. Here’s a deeper look at just a few of the potent new tools at your disposal in Gunrunning.
Everything begins with a Bunker: the massive, underground hub of your new enterprise. Any CEO, VIP or MC President can jump start their promising career from here to get operations off the ground.
For heavy duty tactical operations on the move, arms dealers can invest in a Mobile Operations Center (MOC), the kind of powerful support usually enjoyed only by trained assassins or rogue nuclear states. Storable in your Bunker, this drivable command center’s modular construction allows for tailored combinations of vehicle workshop, weapons workshop, luxury living quarters, and command center – with facilities for upgrading and customizing your arsenal and modifying Weaponized Vehicles (including turrets for your MOC that can be manned by your squad) – all at your fingertips, and pulled by a fully customizable commercial semi.
Weaponized Vehicles are a brand new class to stock and customize. Build a fleet to cover every eventuality: from the ultimate utility of the fully amphibious, canon-toting APC, to a mobile anti-aircraft trailer that’ll have pilots soiling their cockpits across the state. Weaponized Vehicles can also be employed as company assets instrumental in delivering cargo to any drop-off.
Beyond manufacturing your stock to sell, reap the benefits of your Bunker’s white coat staff by allocating their time to Research and they’ll get busy unlocking a range of optional upgrades including unique personal weapon modifications, a whole range of brutal tech for your Weaponized Vehicles, and terrifying upgrades for your Mobile Operations Center.

Get doubly rewarded this week for taking down the lucrative scores from GTA Online: Heists, as all five of these multi-tiered cooperative missions will be dishing out twice as much GTA$ and RP from May 9th - 15th.
For those yet to tackle Heists in GTA Online, here’s a brief rundown of each one:
- Prove your worth as a heist crew by taking down a small Fleeca Bank franchise on the Western Highway. Scope it out, get your getaway car, then take it down and get out clean.
- Break a high value inmate out of Bolingbroke Penitentiary. To get him out, you'll need an inmate transport bus and a smugglers' plane. To keep him happy, you'll need to settle some debts and get him his car.
Humane Labs Raid
- Go into a secretive research facility and come out with their data. Get hold of an EMP and get it into their grounds, get the Lab's key codes, and get yourself an attack chopper. Then half the team hits the lab and half holds off security until it's done.
Series A Funding
- Help a smalltime dealer get the stock he needs to launch a bigtime distribution business. Raid some of the largest narco-operations in the state, take their product, and get it all together for the big sale.
Pacific Standard Job
- Bring down the flagship branch of one of the biggest banks in the country. Find a transponder and tune it to the right signal to disable Pacific Standard dye packs, get hacking equipment, getaway bikes and thermal charges, then go in hard and come out with their holdings.
While being in a Crew isn't a necessity for Heists, communication and coordination are key to maximize pulling off a successful Heist with your jewels intact. So round up your best Crewmates and put that planning board in your luxury apartment to good use.
And please note that while the payouts for special bonuses like the All In Order Challenge and Criminal Mastermind Challenge are still active, Double GTA$ and RP do not apply to them.
ADDITIONAL ONGOING BONUSES IN GTA ONLINE
Don't forget to take full advantage of all the other discounts and bonuses currently active in GTA Online, from Double GTA$ & RP on Biker Contract Missions to bonus payouts on Special Cargo Deliveries, 25% off select Vehicles and more. Get the full rundown at the Social Club Events Page.
