Time to get your weapons trafficking organization off the ground. Today Rockstar Games announced that its legions of Grand Theft Auto Online criminals can set up a new gunrunning trade come this June. 

Gunrunning gives your criminal enterprise another way to diversify its cash flow, whether you are a CEO, VIP, or the leader of a leather-clad biker gang. Rockstar explains the operation:

Dotted throughout Blaine County are hatches - look into these mysterious properties on the Maze Bank Foreclosure site and you’ll find sprawling underground headquarters for sale, ready to be stocked with new military-grade vehicles and weapons-manufacturing equipment capable of developing highly sought after offensive and defensive technologies. 

Some of these new purchasable bunkers appear to have target ranges so you can test the weapons before you sell them.

Rockstar plans to outline the Gunrunning DLC further in later news updates, including details on the including new weaponized vehicles, weapon upgrades, and "full-service Mobile Operation Centers."
