Grand Theft Auto Online posts a teaser of its upcoming Gunrunning update

Here in my car, I feel safest of all.

Guns are a pretty important part of Grand Theft Auto Online. If you’re going to play a hardened criminal, you probably want to have lots of things to point and shoot, after all. But why stop there? Why not go full-on into offering some high-tech military overhauls for even the most conventional vehicles around while also providing people with the very latest in personal surface-to-air missile launchers? If that sounds like your jam, you’ll be very happy with the game’s Gunrunning update coming in June.

The gunrunning operations are based out of southern San Andreas, and players will be locating various hatches which can be converted into headquarters for manufacturing, upgrading, and distributing powerful weapons. More details will be forthcoming soon, but you can check out the first screenshots below and let your mind fill with the image of putting heavily armored cars with rotating chaingun turrets on the streets of Los Santos. This is a series which routinely has tanks rumbling down the street, it might not be that much of a stretch.

People rave about this game, wonder why they can’t make it a real MMO instead of limited # of players per server?
It’s not like they don’t have deep enough pockets to do it.

Tbh with the map size being what it is as large as it is a full session feels pretty crowded especially when doing world content.

And a larger map would be a lot more expensive to make as detailed as los santos

Agreed Mel, I say this at least once a week while playing, it would make a great persistent MMO with some changes. Like DK said, the map is cozy when it’s full and at capacity, it doesn’t take much to feel the lag. If they could optimize the game and have some form of protection against cheaters it would be an awesome RPG.

I dont think the map is large enough to support more than 25-30 players.

the image with the AA missile truck is interesting because there’s not much in the way of counters against air threats these days.

on the other hand it’s gonna make my weed and meth deliveries that much more daunting when playing on populated servers. which is my primary source of income (tho i heard import/export is a bit better money than we originally though tho involves some rng?, we still mostly stick to crates for solo play amongst those that still play now and then in the meantime).

this could see us come back here and there after it releases pending dry spells of current games bfore anticipated games this summer tho. those mad max/i76 esque cars are kind of hitting my itchy spot XD

Yup I like the updated vehicles for counters against those who always spawn jets and tanks and PK everyone they see.

But I am also worried that this will increase the amount of armored vehicles online and I might start playing solo or grouped with people who dont want to be around that.

With a little bit of patience you can dick with the matchmaking so it puts you in a public session by yourself/just your friends so you can ceo/biker stuff

Yea sometimes I notice if I am in a session, everyone will all of a sudden drop out and I am alone.

When that happens I usually start my CEO stuff.

There’s a way to game it so it does it when you want reliably but only two of us know it while the rest of us just hunt for small sessions then kick the other players
