Weapons are at the forefront of all GTA games. Ranging from a fishing knife to rocket-propelled grenades to vibrators, there are many different weapons throughout the series. This article mainly concerns weapons in the Grand Theft Auto III Era and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Weapon Skill

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you can increase your skill for a particular weapon by practising, using the weapon either on a shooting range or on real targets. For each individual weapon you can achieve three skill-levels: Poor, Gangster and Hitman. On the Hitman skill level, you will be 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 four means. Firstly, a visit to Ammu-Nation will enable you to purchase certain weapons using your money, however not all weapons are available and the cost can be quite high. Secondly, you can kill an armed pedestrian, gang member or character and steal their weapon. Thirdly, once you have reached certain parts of games, such as obtaining a certain number of hidden packages, some weapons will spawn at your Safehouses. Finally, weapons can be found scattered throughout the city, usually hidden behind or inside buildings or structures, or in unorthodox locations that a player would miss at first glance.

There are several handguns in GTA games:
