In GTA IV there are 15 weapons for players to use in the game. These include: 2 Melee, 2 Pistols, 2 Shotguns, 2 SMG, 2 Assault Riles, 2 Sniper Rifles, 2 Projectiles and 1 Heavy. These weapons are listed below with a small description.



Baseball Bat

The Baseball Bat is your standard Melee weapon in GTA. It requires hands and a good swing. It can crunch people’s brains and knock them out easily. Remember, it doesn’t fire bullets.



Again, another standard weapon which is in GTA. The Knife is a blade which goes straight through your enemy. Stab them until your heart is content, or until theirs stops beating…




The Pistol was developed in the ’80s by Austrian engineer, Gaston Glock. It went on to become the world’s most popular civilian and law enforcement sidearm. Thanks to its polymer frame and simple, internal striker-fired mechanism, the Glock is both lightweight and extremely durable.


Combat Pistol

In 1979, Magnum Research Inc. set out to create the first gas-operated, magnum-calibre pistol. It’s just like the Standard Pistol, however has slightly better accuracy and an increased power.



Pump Shotgun

Based roughly on the classic Remington model 870, the Winchester 1300 line is also known as the “Speed Pump” series thanks to the short, fast cycling of the action. The only downside is, the power isn’t too great which means a reduction in damage.


Combat Shotgun

This seems to be based on the Baretta 1201 FP, but with the barrel of a military Remington 870. It’s probably the better shotgun out of the two, due to the fact its damage is better and it has a slightly quicker rate of fire.

Sub-Machine Guns



The SMG is based off of the MP5. It’s typically used by the SWAT Police and sometimes in the Navy Seals. It has some great accuracy and some insane damage. A great weapon for quickly picking people off.



The Micro-SMG is yes, you guessed it, a smaller version of the Standard SMG. Which means majority of its specs are lower too. Not my favourite gun, but it gets the job done I suppose.

Assault Rifles



The AK-47 is one of the world’s most common assault rifles normally used by the Taliban and gang members. Its got a great rate of fire however not as good accuracy as its competing rifle.


Carbine Rifle

The Carbine Rifle is typically used in the army. It’s a great assault rifle, one of my favourite weapons in the whole GTA Series. great for long distance and picking people off.




Grab a glass bottle, pour in some petrol, whack in a rag in the top, light the rag and toss it. Watch the flames burn with your enemies burning with em’!



Pull the pin, toss it and BOOM. That’s all. Just don’t stand on top of it.




The RPG, need I say more? It makes a huge explosion and delivers a LOT of fun!

Sniper Rifles


Sniper Rifle

The M40A1 started its life as a Remington 700, and was then customized by the US Marine Corps to fit their sniping needs. It is great for shooting people at long distances.


Combat Sniper

About the same as the Standard Sniper, however it has better accuracy.
