Gamers enjoying Grand Theft Auto can benefit from the game’s wide variety of properties, all of which offer various advantages to players. However, many have also tried to gain some extra cash by selling properties – quite a few fans are still curious to find out if you can sell a free bunker in GTA Online.

  • Article Breakdown:
  • Players can own one bunker at a time in GTA Online, and purchasing another will automatically start a trade.
  • Players get a 50% refund of the first bunker’s purchase price (unless it was purchased for free) and a 50% refund for expansions and upgrades.
  • Players can purchase a high-valued bunker and trade it in for the cheapest bunker on the market for some profit – once the properties are swapped, the difference will be transferred to the player.

Bunkers in GTA

Underground Bunkers in GTA, also known as “Los Santos Airbase Bunkers” based on their signs, are purchasable properties within the game – initially added with the Gunrunning update. Based on their overall appearance, these bunkers are implied to be former military facilities, which players can use for their own personal or business purposes.

Bunkers are massive properties with underground facilities, introduced with Covert Ops. These properties act as safehouses in GTA Online exclusively, and their costs can range anywhere between $1,165,000 and $4,070,000.

GTA Bunker Locations & Prices

Both GTA Online and GTA 5 take place within the same timeline, and they do have identical maps. But things are different when it comes to buying and selling properties.

GTA Online offers way more properties for players and the option to sell (as players only have the option to buy properties in GTA 5 Story Mode). Bunkers may be customized with several additions, similar to Motorcycle Clubhouses and CEO Offices. The bunker’s business functions will work as long as the owner is in a session.

There are 11 bunkers that players can purchase, all situated in numerous locations, as seen below, and they can be purchased from Maze Bank Foreclosures after receiving an introductory phone call from Agent 14.

While having a bunker in GTA Online can be advantageous to players, it also comes with relative costs and fees after the initial purchase. Players who are registered as either a CEO, VIP, or MC president will incur a standard daily fee of $2,000, while a fully upgraded bunker done through Disruption Logistics will cost $4,500 daily.

Can You Own 2 Bunkers in GTA Online?

Only one bunker can be owned at a time in GTA Online, and purchasing another will automatically trade the old one in exchange for the new one. Players will get a 50% refund of the first bunker’s purchase price (unless it was purchased for free), in addition to a 50% return for the cost of expansions and upgrades purchased for that bunker.

This means that expansions and upgrades will have to be purchased again for the new bunker. Any supplies, stock, and research-in-progress will be lost after selling the bunker, but all completed research will be permanently kept for that character (if a MOC is owned, it will be automatically moved to the new bunker as well).

How to Sell & Refund a Bunker in GTA Online

Players cannot get refunds for any items that are purchased in-game, which includes items such as Vehicles, Property, Weapons, and cosmetic items. However, players will get half of their money back after selling a bunker in GTA Online – although this is not as simple as selling it for instant cash.

The only thing players can do to get money back is to trade in their bunker for another one, and that 50% refund will serve as a contribution to their next bunker – players cannot simply sell a bunker for instant cash back without buying a new one. Follow the steps below to trade in your bunker in exchange for another bunker while getting half of your money back.

  1. Navigate to Maze Bank Foreclosures.
  2. Purchase another bunker (you can choose to buy a more expensive bunker at a discount or a cheaper bunker for extra profit).
  3. The first bunker purchased (the one you are trying to sell) will be sold at half its value.
  4. The 50% refund will go towards the purchased bunker unless there are any differences in value – which will be transferred to the player.

Players will get a ‘profit’ if there is a difference between the first bunker and the second bunker’s cost. Simply select a high-valued bunker and trade it in for the cheapest bunker on the market – once the properties are swapped, the difference in value will be directly transferred to the player.

It’s not possible to profit from selling a property in GTA Online without acquiring a new one in the process – players have to own six properties in order to swap a high-valued property for a cheaper property and have the difference sent to their character’s account balance. However, since only one bunker can be owned at a time, this method should still apply.

Can You Sell a Free Bunker in GTA Online?

Players cannot get any money back from selling the free bunker in GTA Online, much like any other free item in-game. However, players will still get a percentage of their money back regarding additional upgrades, such as security staff.

Can You Sell a Full Bunker Solo?

It is possible to sell a full bunker solo in GTA Online, although the Farmhouse Bunker is seen as the best location for solo players in particular. Players should ideally go through the process as MC – some players also believe that you can get slightly more money by doing it as MC as well.

That’s everything there is to know about selling bunkers in GTA Online, with images and stats thanks to the GTA Wiki. Players may not be able to own more than one bunker at a time in-game, but GTA Online bunkers still grant a range of benefits to those who own them.
