[[Image:ak47_sa.png|thumb|right|250px|The AK-47 in [[GTA San Andreas]].]] The '''AK-47''' is an assault rifle in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]. == Description == The AK-47 fires powerful rounds and is the most powerful assault rifle available in the [[GTA III Era]] games. The AK-47, however, has a slow rate of fire, and suffers from tremendous recoil and accuracy problems with long range. It is a common sight in the hands of many gangs on the later missions throughout the games. The AK-47 does not appear in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], being replaced by the [[Ruger]]. In GTA IV, the AK-47 is referenced in-game as the '''Assault Rifle'''. It can be purchased from the back-alley gun shops for $3,500 and each additional magazine costs $80. It can also be purchased from [[Little Jacob]] for $2,450 with each additional magazine costing $55. Like almost all other guns, this a 3 headshot kill on both single player and multiplayer. It is the starting weapon when the weapons are set to assault rifles. This can NOT be fired from a car. While the AK-47 is good, it is even with the M4, having better power, while the M4 has better accuracy, and it's rate of fire is slightly better; it is in "poor weapons" range while the M4 is in the "advanced" range. Strangely, this weapon shares ammunition with the AR-15 in all GTA III-era games as walking up to one will give you ammunition for your AK47. The AR-15 fires the 5.56 while the AK47 fires the bigger Powerful 7.62; despite the inaccuracy it is probably to even out gameplay. ===Variations=== * '''GTA III '''([]): The GTA III version of the weapon is mostly accurate, but appears smaller than it should be. It is an AK47 WASR, as it has the iron handle. *'''GTA San Andreas''' ([]): The GTA San Andreas version of the weapon is a Norinco Type 56. It is often used in [[Gang Warfare]]. The model is very low detail and, strangely enough, is significantly larger than it should be, being two-thirds as long as [[Carl Johnson]] is tall. *'''GTA Liberty City Stories''' ([]): This rendition is exactly the same as the ''Vice City Stories'' rendition with no actual differences. *'''GTA Vice City Stories''' ([]): The Vice City Stories rendition is accurate, both by size and look. *'''GTA IV''' ([]): The version in-game is the AK-47. Its size is accurate, as is the magazine size and overall performance. The AK-47 is quite powerful, yet it is not as accurate as the [[M4 Carbine]]. *'''GTA Chinatown Wars''' ([]): The Chinatown Wars variant is hard to tell who or what manufactured the AK-47, though it most likely a AK-47 WAS-R 10. When you find one in a dustbin, you will see that the gas tube on the weapon has been removed, though the HUD image clearly shows that the gas tube is on. The weapon itself is overall powerful and has good accuracy, however the AR-15 betters it in both ways. ==Gallery== ===In-Game Model===

The Psycho is a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, voiced by Hunter Platin. He has an obsession of killing the four members of the band Love Fist, and dresses up as a woman to get near the band. He attempts to kill Love Fist, but is himself apparently killed by Tommy Vercetti. However, it turns out he survived as the members of Love Fist tells Tommy that "that Psycho's back!". He plants Boomshine based explosives in the Love Fist limousine, with Tommy driving around Vice City whilst guiding the band members on how to defuse the bomb which they manage to do successfully. Following this, The Psycho is never seen or heard from again.

- The Psycho looks like the killer in the 1980 film staring Michael Caine titled Dressed to Kill, in which the male killer dresses like a woman to murder other men.
