The Ballad of Gay Tony introduces 7 new weapons, and introduces the parachute to the GTA IV era. The weapons from GTA IV and The Lost and Damned remain available in the game through various spawn points and underground gun shops. Some (yet not all) of the new weapons can be acquired at a discount by befriending Armando Torres and buying from him; he also sells parachutes.


Pistol .44 (ÁMT Automag)

  • Cost: $640
  • Magazine Size: 8 rounds
  • Carrying Capacity: 1,500 rounds

A new type of handgun. It is a high velocity handgun for quick and accurate kills. It was briefly seen in the second "Episodes From Liberty City" trailer, in which Luis shot a gunman on a plane while driving a Bati Custom and jumped on before it took off.


Explosive Shotgun (AA-12)

  • Cost: $80 for standard rounds, $160 for explosive rounds
  • Magazine Size: 20 rounds
  • Carrying Capacity: 600 rounds

An AA-12 packed with explosive charges. It is a low recoil automatic shotgun with rapid fire to take down multiple targets easily.

The AA-12 also has a non-explosive variant found around Liberty City, which is used by the Tactical Response Unit of NOOSE and the FIB.

Sub-Machine Guns

Gold SMG (Uzi SMG)

A Gold-plated SMG. Yusuf Amir is seen carrying this weapon in the "Meet Yusuf Amir" trailer.

Assault SMG (FN P90)

  • Cost: $6,725
  • Magazine Size: 50 rounds
  • Carrying Capacity: 1,200 rounds

A light, accurate and compact sub-machine gun. Perfect in gunfights, it is the first weapon used by Luis in the mission Dropping In.... The Assault SMG is first given to the player during the mission "Chinese Takeout", and is not available beforehand. Certain NOOSE and FIB officers also carry the Assault SMG.

Assault Rifle / Light Machine Gun

Advanced MG (M249 SAW)

  • Magazine Size: 200 round belt
  • Carrying Capacity: 600 rounds

A powerful weapon that fires 900 rounds per minute, taking enemies down fast. As seen in the Guns in Liberty City (Weazel News) Trailer, demonstrated by the "Terrorism Expert". The Advanced MG is placed in the Assault Rifle slot since it uses 5.56mm NATO rounds.

Sniper Rifle

Advanced Sniper (DSR-1)

  • Magazine Size: 10 rounds
  • Carrying Capacity: 50 rounds

Greatly increased range, rate of fire and sniper zoom make this the ideal long range weapon. It was seen in a screenshot in which Luis was targeting a person while on a helicopter.


Sticky Bombs (Satchel Charges)

  • Cost: $800
  • Carrying Capacity: 25 units

Tag vehicles or objects for remote detonation. Used in the mission Going Deep.




  • Cost: $100

The Parachute returns in The Ballad of Gay Tony. Its steering system is the same as in San Andreas. It is used in Dropping In..., and in parachute checkpoints. The parachute is available in multiplayer.
