The Gold SMG is a new weapon in The Ballad of Gay Tony. It appears as gold-plated Mini Uzi. Yusuf Amir has a Gold SMG and is occasionally seen walking around with it. It has the same stopping power, accuracy and sound as the Micro Uzi, and is, basically, a stumpier replacement. However, the rate of fire is different, as it fires much faster than the Micro Uzi. It has a 30-round magazine, rather than the Micro Uzi's 50 round magazine. Because it is a much bigger than the Micro Uzi (and the fact that the gold plating is relativily heavy), Luis and the Multiplayer Character holds it with two hands, firing from the hip. This gun, while being similar to the Uzi from GTA 4 and TLAD, has such an astounding rate of fire that it is the best gun in the game for drive bys and is not bad for ground warfare.
It is unlocked by completing the game. Luis will receive one with max ammo, and it will be available at Armando's Gun Van. Every 50 rounds cost $80. It is also recieved from Yusuf Amir after completing his final mission. Also after completing 50 of the Drug Wars side missions a Gold SMG can be found in Luis apartment.
- Luis can only aquire the Gold SMG once from Yusuf's car
- When arrested, you will no longer have the SMG
- Unlike the Micro Uzi used in GTA 4, the Gold SMG is a regular Submachine Gun which was featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
