The weapon selection in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is one of the most important aspects of the game. Some off the weapons have returned from Vice City while some of them are brand new and exclusive for San Andreas. There are two new and very useful features in the game; smart aiming being the first. The game will detect whether the weapon shall auto target an AI near the player; or revert to manual-aim if there is no AI nearby. This feature is especially useful when there is a need of shooting a target through the window of a car with any weapon and manual aim is required. If a player requires to use manual-aim in a crowded area it is as simple as moving the right analog stick while in auto-aim, to quicly switch to the manual feature. You cannot use smart aim for: meele weapons, country rifle, sniper rifle, projectiles or any of the heavy weapons. The second new feature is the ability to duel-weild several weapons after reaching a certain skill level in each weapon. One more new feature in the game is the ability for the player to aquire a suppressed pistol, great for stealth, and will not attract as much "police attention".
