The mean streets of Los Santos are dangerous places to be hanging around without adequate protection, which is why you’ll always want to be packing the most powerful version of the weapons you own. Many guns in Grand Theft Auto V can be upgraded to MK2 versions that give you more tactical options and more firepower. Here we’ll run you through how to get MK2 weapons in GTA V Online.
Before we get started, it’s worth noting that not every weapon has a MK2 variant. You’ll only be able to upgrade the pistol, SMG, Heavy Sniper, Combat MG, Assault Rifle and Carbine Rifle.
Once you’ve upgraded, you’ll have the option to add some very cool tactical customization options to give you the edge during combat. These include new magazines packing tracer, incendiary, armor piercing, hollow point and other types of rounds. Add Night Vision, Holographic and Thermal Scopes, new grips, suppressors, Muzzle Brakes, Liveries, Tints and much more.
How to Get MK2 Weapons in GTA V
There are a few requirements that you’ll need before you can unlock MK2 weapons, and it will require you to spend a pretty penny.
The facilities you need are a bunker, a mobile operations center (MOC), and then either the weapon workshop modification or the weapon and vehicle workshop modification upgrade for your MOC.
Bunkers are purchasable properties in GTA Online that range from $1 – 3 million. There are 11 in the game, with the least expensive being the Paleto Forest Bunker at a cost of $1.1 million.
The MOC’s base cost is $1,225,000, but the modification you’ll need on top will add more depending on which you get. You’re looking at $245,000 for the weapon only and $955,000 for the weapon and vehicle combo.
Right, now you’ve spent an absolute wad of cash on the required facilities, you can upgrade your weapons. To do so, head to your MOC’s weapon center and use the upgrade button — it’s unmissable, right at the top of the list.
