I recently posted about GTA 5’s next update that is coming this summer known as the Gun Runner update which you can check out here. Basically I just talk about what you’ll be able to do in this new expansion and some of the new things you’ll able to add to your arsenal and garages.
Well Gamespot has a big new update regarding this large expansion that is coming and it includes the month it will be released, more info on the types of things you’ll be able to do and includes some screenshots of some of the vehicles which sport some heavy weaponry! Below is Gamespot’s article, but you can go to their page and check out the screenshots:
“Rockstar Games has announced the next major update for Grand Theft Auto V‘s multiplayer mode. “Gunrunning” is a “massive” expansion for GTA Online that is slated to launch in June.
The developer did not share much in the way of specifics about Gunrunning, but as its name suggests, it will involve the illegal weapons trafficking industry. It builds on the previously released Executives & Other Criminals and Bikers updates, with an eye on criminal activity.
“While sharply dressed CEOs trade Special Cargo from lavish air conditioned suites, and leather-clad Bikers own the roadways moving illicit consumer goods,” Rockstar said. “New opportunities are opening in a highly lucrative and equally malicious network hidden underground ripe for takeover by the VIPs, CEOs, and Biker bosses of Los Santos and Blaine County.”
In Blaine County, there will be “hatches” available to players. These are “mysterious properties” that can be acquired to stock with “military-grade vehicles and weapons manufacturing equipment.” Players can earn “top dollar” for participating in weapons trafficking.
Rockstar will announce more details on Gunrunning, including all of its new weapons, upgrades, and vehicles in the time ahead. An amphibious vehicle called the APC is one of the new vehicles, while the Tampa gets a weaponized upgrade.
We’ll report back with more information as it’s released. For now, you can see the first images from Gunrunning in the gallery above.”
Some of this new information has me really excited especially when they mentioned mysterious properties!
The good news is that this update for GTA 5 will be coming in June so we don’t have to much longer to wait. After looking at some of those screenshots, I am definitely salivating over some of the new vehicles with weapons especially after seeing one screenshot which looks like military grade vehicles that can shoot missiles.
If that’s the case, then that will really come in handy in regular free roam mode in the multiplayer section of GTA 5 as you’ll be better able to shoot down other players who love to fly the skies and kill others in the Hydra fighter jets.
Well there you have it, a new GTA 5 update regarding the Gun Runner expansion that is coming. We now know the month it will arrive in, what some of the new vehicles look like and what one of the possible activities look like that you’ll be able to participate in if you so choose.
What do you think of the news? Does it have you excited for the update that’s coming? Share your thoughts below!

This is pretty cool. I have been away from GTA5 for a while, but my son has been playing multiplayer recently and it
reignited my interest. I’ll definitely have to look into it again.
I think it’s pretty amazing how much support this has had over… how many years? 4?
I find that when I look at games no, I am always considering the long-term play-value, even more than before.
Games that are just a linear story with a beginning, middle and end can still be a lot of fun, but I prefer to have a
game that I can keep coming back to.
Having not played for a while though, I have no idea what the online population is. Are there still many players? I
imagine there must be for there to be continued development, but when I see my son playing, he always seems to
be playing in a vacuum.
Gta 5 is my favorite game of all time. I’ve been playing since San Andreas all the way up till now and it continues to get better. I play online all the time and can’t wait for the new vehicles and weapons they are going to release this time. I’m literally counting down the days till June lol. Great article and can’t wait for the new update.
Yeah this new update is going to be awesome, I just may have to save up the money I’ve got already in the game to purchase some of these new vehicles and weapons that will become available. June is nearly here, lol!
