- in-game website description


Weapons are at the forefront of all Grand Theft Auto games. Ranging from bare fists to a simple baseball bat to fishing knifes to rocket-propelled grenades to dildos, there are many different weapons throughout the series. This article mainly details weapons in the GTA III Era and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Weapon Skill

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the player can increase his/her skill for a particular weapon by practicing, using the weapon either on a shooting range or on real targets. For each individual weapon, the player can achieve three skill-levels: Poor, Gangster and Hitman. On the Hitman skill level, the player is able to fire lighter weapons whilst walking, as well as being able to double-wield certain weapons (one in each hand).

Obtaining Weapons

Weapons can be obtained by 7 main means:

  • Picking up weapons that spawn around the map
  • Purchasing from Ammu-Nation or other weapon shops
    • For weapons that share ammo, the player can save money by purchasing lots of the cheap weapon (e.g. the Tec-9) to gain lots of ammo for that slot, then purchasing the expensive weapon (e.g. the SMG)
    • In GTA IV and its episodes, the player buys one gun then pays a smaller amount for additional magazines (thrown weapons still need to purchased one at a time at full price)
  • Picking up a weapon from killed Pedestrians, gang members or police officers
  • Weapons spawning as rewards - Once the player have reached certain parts of games, such as obtaining a certain number of Hidden Packages, some weapons spawn at the player's Safehouses
  • Weapons being automatically given to the player by other characters, such as those required for a mission
  • Entering/exiting certain vehicles, e.g. the Caddy gives the player a golf club and the Police Car gives the player a shotgun.
  • Using Cheats to spawn weapons and extra ammo
