Rockstar Games have made it possible to grab all of the handguns you’ve never bought in Grand Theft Auto 5 for absolutely zero dollars. So, let’s take a look at how to get all of them for free in GTA Online. 

Just like any other week in-game, developers Rockstar have mixed things up with another content update – with patch notes being revealed on May 14. This saw the end of the limited time offer where players could grab the $360k alien suits for free, but introduced fresh discounts for several expensive products.

Included in Twitch Prime rewards were slashed prices for the Mammoth Tula plane and Grotti’s Furia sports car – reduced in cost by 80% and 60%, in that order. However, one of the biggest things to come out of the patch was free handguns, and we’re going to show you exactly how to claim them.

There are many weapons in GTA Online’s Ammu-Nation, but usually, none of them are free. Well, until now.

If you’re looking for free pistols, you’ve come to the right place in terms of instructions, but there’s one place you will have to visit on the map to make it all happen. This is a limited time offer, too, and will expire when next week’s update hits on May 21.

Below is a step-by-step guide on what to do. You’ll have a load of new weapons in no time to add to your inventory!

  1. Log into Grand Theft Auto 5.
  2. Head over to the GTA Online.
  3. From there, place a marker on your nearest Ammu-Nation gun shop and make your way there.
  4. Look at the weapons behind the counter once you enter and pick from the free selection.
  5. Once redeemed, leave Ammu-Nation and try out your new firearms.

If you’re struggling to find your nearest Ammu-Nation, or can’t be bothered checking the in-game map right now, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.

Below is a GTA V map with all Ammu-Nation stores circled, which should help you out when you’re going to redeem your free gifts.

Is the Up-N-Atomizer free in GTA Online?

One thing that we can confirm, however, is that the expensive Up-N-Atomizer blaster has not been made free by this update.

So, that’s that! All you have to do is visit one of these stores, take a look at the weapons that have been made free and take your pick! Hopefully, they will be useful for you in gunfights, missions, and heists in GTA Online.


Terrible GTA Online bug makes it impossible to use bunkers

GTA Online players are still having their bunker business missions ruined thanks to a bug that won’t let them enter their not-so-secret base. 

For the longest time, the best way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online came through jobs and heists. Players would have to grind them out, over and over again, to be able to stack up cash.

Eventually, Rockstar Games brought businesses into the fold – allowing players to make money passively, before having to complete one delivery job at the end for an absolutely huge sum of money. 

The most lucrative of these jobs center around bunkers and the Gunrunning business, where, as the name suggests, you become an arms dealer. However, some players are struggling to run their businesses properly.

Owning a bunker will unlock GTA Online’s Gunrunning business options.

The problem isn’t an overly complicated one, instead, it’s just simple. Players can’t access the bunkers. No matter if they’re on foot or in a car, the yellow circle that you usually use to enter just won’t do anything. 

What that means is, players like Reddit user TheAlphamale82, are left to drive around in circles hoping that something might change. But, sadly, it doesn’t and you end up locked outside the bunker unless you want to restart the game.

However, not even a restart is a magic cure, as the problem can still persist in other lobbies. It really is a peculiar problem – and it is one that is affecting different players.

Others like Aberfergie and r3d-v3n0m noted that they have run into the issue as well, and that they’ve flagged a ticket with Rockstar Support. However, while the devs have supposedly said they’ll work on it, they haven’t found a fix. 

The winter update, which will bring the Cayo Perico heist to GTA Online is right around the corner, and that update should address some issues. Hopefully, the bunker problem is one of them.
