You can now obtain your hands on a Railgun and visit the Gun Van in GTA Online. The latest weekly update has introduced a weapon that may be familiar if you've spent time with the leading story, the Railgun. This weapon is extremely powerful and good for beating stubborn NPCs.

If that wasn't enough, GTA Online sweetened the addition by introducing the Gun Van. It's definitely as shady as it sounds, but if you don't question where the owner got the guns or how, then it's a good place for getting discounted weapons for your crook empire.

Without further ado, we're going to show you where to find the Gun Van and how to obtain the Railgun in GTA Online.
