1 - What Are Bunkers?


Bunkers are old underground military bases that you can buy. They have everything from living quarters, storage and workshops in which you can carry out researches to customize your weapons and vehicles.

Upon purchasing a bunker, you would get a new Gunrunning Business, allowing you to sell illegal weaponry throughout the city to get extra cash. This should not be your main source of income, however, as the passive bonus is not really high enough. You would be able to buy a bunker after getting a phone call from Agent 14.

3 - Bunker Research/Manufacturing

After your first mission, you would get two options for your staff: Production/Manufacturing or Research. An upgraded bunker would do these features faster. Researches usually take 4-6 hours, and there are 45 of them... so you can expect it to take quite a while. You can pay to advance immediately, but it is pretty expensive ($225,000).

After you have done sufficient researches, you can switch to production/manufacturing to use the supplies you acquired to manufacture weapons and sell them for a big profit. Alternate between these two features to unlock all the researches.

4 - Bunker Supplies

You need supplies to create weapons to sell. A full bar is 100 units - you can buy 20 units for $15,000 and 100 for $75,000. You can also get supplies by doing missions... with solo offering 20 and groups offering 40. Most of these missions are fairly simple but there are definitely some hard ones.

5 - Selling Bunker Stock

You will need to do these Bunker Sell Missions to exchange your stock for money.

  • Dune FAV
  • Insurgent
  • Insurgent Pick-Up Customs
  • Insurgent Pick-Up Customs ambushed by Merryweather
  • Marshall
  • Phantom Wedge

For maximum profits, it is recommended to head to Los Santos, where you’ll be capable of earning an additional 50% profit. Selling at Blaine County would be faster, of course.
