Weapons are at the forefront of all Grand Theft Auto games. Ranging from a simple baseball bat to fishing knives to rocket-propelled grenades to vibrators, 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 GTA San Andreas, you can increase your skill for a particular weapon by practicing, 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 6 main means:

  • Picking up weapons that spawn around the map
  • Purchasing from Ammu-Nation or other weapon shops - You can purchase certain weapons using your money, however not all weapons are available and the cost can be quite high
    • For weapons that share ammo, you can save money by purchasing lots of the cheap weapon (eg the Tec-9) to gain lots of ammo for that slot, then purchasing the expensive weapon (eg the SMG)
  • Picking up a weapon from a killed pedestrian or police officer
  • Weapons spawning as rewards - Once you have reached certain parts of games, such as obtaining a certain number of Hidden Packages, some weapons will spawn at your Safehouses
  • Weapons being automatically given to the player by other characters, such as those required for a mission
  • Entering/ exiting certain vehicles, e.g golf caddy giving you a golf club
  • Using Cheats to spawn weapons and extra ammo
