A Tear Gas canister in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
"Semi-legal, highly dangerous way of causing crowd unrest."
-Vice City Bureau of Investigation file description.


In real life, tear gas is generally considered to be a non-lethal weapon, but in the world of GTA, it's anything but. Granted, it does take prolonged exposure to the gas to kill, but in confined spaces, this can be arranged. However, seeing as the gas causes people to stop what they are doing while they cover their face and cough, the most practical use for this weapon is to slow enemies down while the player is trying to escape or switch to another weapon.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, by deploying the Tear Gas too close to the player, he too, will lose health from the noxious gas, and the longer he stays there, the greater he loses his health, thus dying, much like other pedestrians (except in the iOS and Android versions of GTA Vice City). In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Tear Gas can be used to attack pedestrians, while the player is unaffected and can freely walk around the gas, until the smoke subsides. By dropping more Tear Gas, the smoke will be longer and any pedestrians or cops enters the smoke will be choked on by the toxic gas until finally dying. However, using a tear gas in a very populated area in San Andreas, such as the strip, will give a player a very high wanted level rather quickly. The gas lasts a long time, and if used in a crowd, the wanted level will just advance upwards, possibly even being able to give a player a 6 star wanted level if the grenades are used in succession.

The Tear Gas is not meant to be obtained in GTA Vice City (except for the original PS2 version), GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories. However, the weapon is fully functional and can be obtained only by using trainers or modifications.
