AmmuNation.net is a website advertised in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and accessible in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. It is only accessible through the PDA and not through the laptop in the safehouses. It is the only place where the player can buy weapons and ammunition from the website and have it delivered to the nearest safehouse. The site replaces the physical Ammu-Nation stores of previous games.
GTA Liberty City Stories
In GTA Liberty City Stories, the website exists in-game as an unusable website. The website was set up for ordering weapons before Y2K. Billboards can be spotted in certain parts around the city. According to the radio ad, if someone purchases the "All-In-One Y2K Kit", they receive a tractor trailer load of Logger Beer, Redwood Cigarettes, and enough firepower and ammunition to level a small country. Other than in-game, Rockstar Games set up a teaser site with the same name. The teaser site has a list of in-game weapons with the same prices as the in-game Ammu-Nation stores. It also has a time set at the date 12:31:99, and the time 11:59:00. The timer starts at the last minute to the last hour. Upon reaching 60 seconds it just restarts at the same minute. At the bottom of the page there are several ads for Burger Shot, The Mainframe, and Heavy Weapons. There are also signs of Ammu-Nation logos which appear in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. In the top-left corner of the page there is a banner which refreshes the page. Lastly there is a message on the page which reads, "/// Important Announcement \\\ We APOLOGIZE if you are having difficulty browsing the Ammu-nation.net website or purchasing any goods. Please do not panic. Unfortunately a 'server error' has locked all files and frozen up our php code. < We are working tirelessly day and night to fix this problem and should have it sorted soon - please be patient >".
GTA Chinatown Wars
When AmmuNation.net is unlocked after the mission "Pimp His Ride", the player can access it through the PDA (pause screen). There is a choice of six categories for weapons: Handguns, Submachine Guns, Shotguns, Assault Rifles, Heavy Weapons & Projectiles. There is also a Miscellaneous section where the player can buy body armor.
To order weapons, the player touches the category they want and then chooses which weapon they want. Providing they have sufficient funds, the money is deducted and the weapon is put in the basket. Then, when all the weapons the player wants have been selected, touching the basket confirms the order.
After ordering weapons, the player receives 2 emails on their PDA. The first one confirms the order, and the second one tells the player that the order has been delivered to their nearest safehouse. After this email, a white "A" appears on the radar, showing the location of the delivery. At the safehouse, a box with the Ammu-Nation logo on it appears with a blue blip above it. Walk into it and all the weapons (and armor, if ordered) are instantly equipped.
