GTA Online - Gunrunning DLC Available Now, New Contest to Win Prizes!
Gunrunning makes it's way to Los Santos with the latest update for Grand Theft Auto Online, allowing players to take on the illegal arms trade from their underground base of operations or take things mobile in powerful vehicles. Available now!
The illegal Gunrunning ring has found it's way to Los Santos with the new update for Grand Theft Auto: Online available now! Become a top arms dealer by getting your very own Bunker (your own underground base of operations) that can be used to plan out all your operations. Each of these high tech bases will offer players a chance to command your enterprise from the luxury of an underground location complete with a shooting range, personal quarters, a gun locker and more! The entry fee to get one of these sweet new bases is quite low and start from $1,165,000 GTA Dollars (a mild sum for sure compared to the luxury boats).
Plan missions, assign employees to manufacture weapons, research upgrades, and much more as you watch the stock prices grow due to your operation becoming larger. As soon as you're ready to get going you can venture out and begin to move your merchandise, be warned though as you're going to have people on your back trying to stop you - but that's when you take the fight to the competition with powerful new vehicles!
When you need to go mobile, you can take things on the road with the new Mobile Operations Center. These mobile bases will allow players to take the fight accross the country as they feature the ability to stock weapons, vehicles and command your entire operation on the go. They also come equipped with Living Quarters so you can get some downtime and maybe watch a movie in your spare time! Each one can be upgraded to allow even more options, with weapon and vehicle customisation available to those who have unlocked them.
Gunrunning Update Features
Take on the competition with 6 highly customisable machines of war, which can be upgraded with exclusive mods unlocked by your Research Staff and applied in the Vehicle Workshop module. These will be crucial to building your enterprise and as your business grows it will allow you to launch operations from your Mobile Operations Center.
MKII Weapon Upgrades
Guns are also receiving upgrades, now players can upgrade weapons to MKII via the Mobile Operation Center’s Weapon Workshop. You can upgrade the Pistol, SMG, Heavy Sniper, Combat MG, Assault Rifle and Carbine Rifle with MKII options, and equip new attachments including new magazines packing tracer, incendiary, armor piercing, hollow point and other types of rounds. If that wasn't enough, you can also add Night Vision, Holographic and Thermal Scopes, new grips, suppressors, Muzzle Brakes, Liveries, Tints and much more.
New Clothes, Haircuts and Tattoos
And if you fancy taking a trip to the local hairdressers, you will find that some brand new styles for your character - including your very own buzzcut hair and menacing tattoos!
As with other updates, the Gunrunning update also brings a massive amount of features, enhancements, optimizations and fixes.
