GTA V has a wide range of weapons. Altogether there are 30 weapons with the 3 from the Collector’s Edition and the additional weapons from DLC (see these below in the DLC section). 



Baseball Bat

The Baseball Bat is a classic GTA weapon which has been in the series since GTA 3. Knock em’ dead!



The Nightstick, also known as the Baton, is another weapon from the entire GTA Series. Commonly known to be used by the Police.


Golf Club

Just like Vice City and San Andreas, you’d normally expect to see the Golf Club being used on a Golf Course, however you can always use it to kick the shit out of people or just be the normal gentleman and actually play golf.



Another standard weapon that has previously been in the GTA Series.



A new addition to the GTA Series. The Crowbar can’t be bought from Ammunation, however can be found by the Cluckin’ Bell depo in Paleto Bay.



The Hammer has only been in GTA: Vice City and is only available in GTA V by having the Special or Collector’s Edition of the game.



The pistol is based upon the Beretta 92SB-F which is a semi-automatic pistol chambered for the 9x19mm round. This pistol, also mostly known as the M9, is normally used by the Police in most cases.


Combat Pistol

The Heckler & Koch Universal Combat Pistol is a double action, semi-automatic handgun also known as the HK P46. The UCP is the companion side arm to the HK MP7 submachine gun, using the same HK 4.6x30mm bottlenecked cartridge. The 4.6x30mm round is a direct competitor to the 5.7x28mm. It has great armour piecing and delivers a substantial amount of damage.


AP Pistol

The AP Pistol is just like the standard M9 Pistol however it’s automatic which means it has a much faster rate of fire.


Stun Gun

The Stun gun is an incapacitate weapon used for incapacitating a person by administering electric shock aimed at disrupting superficial muscle functions by direct contact. It’s a great weapon to stop your enemies for a few seconds, but shocking in large gun battles.


Pistol .50

The Pistol .50, also known as the Desert Eagle, is the 2nd weapon which is only available in the Special or Collector’s Edition of GTA V. It’s one of the strongest pistols on the game, alongside the Heavy Pistol which was available via DLC. 


Pump Shotgun

This Pump Shotgun based upon the Mossberg 590 which is a semi-automatic .12 gauge shotgun.  It’s a great shotgun which produces some heavy power in a group of people.


Sawed-Off Shotgun

The Sawed-Off Shotgun is a pump-action shotgun which is chambered in 12-gauge (2 and 3/4 and 3″). In GTAV it isn’t my favourite shotgun due to its slow rate of fire and low power, however at close range it’s very good.


Assault Shotgun

The Assault Shotgun is based on the AA-12 shotgun. It’s my favourite shotgun in the whole entire GTA series due to its massive rate of fire and the power it produces. Its clip size is great with extended mags and to some it may seem like a assault rifle but with super powers.


Bullpup Shotgun

The Bullpup Shotgun is the 3rd weapon available exclusively from the Special and Collector’s Edition of GTA V. It is based on the Kel-Tec KSG shotgun and is a pump-action weapon.

Sub-Machine Guns

Micro SMG

The Micro SMG Sub-Machine gun is based upon the IMI Mini-Uzi which is a fully automatic Sub-Machine gun chambered for the 9x19mm round and capable of firing up to 600 rounds per minute. It was first brought into the GTA Series in GTA III and has been featured in every game since.



Brought into the series since Vice City, the SMG, based on the MP5 is what you’d expect to see in the SWAT or high-end Police. It also used sometimes by the Navy Seals. It has a clip size of 30 rounds and can produce some decent damage. It also sounds pretty awesome.

Assault Rifles

Assault Rifle

The Assault Rifle is based on the Norinco Type 56 II, not the AK-47 which most people think. It’s your standard type of assault rifle and was first introduced in GTA 3. It has been in the series since then.


Carbine Rifle

The Carbine Rifle in GTA V is based off of a Heckler & Koch HK416. It has the same clip size as the Assault Rifle, which is 30 rounds and is has an overall really good accuracy and damage.


Advanced Rifle

The Advanced Rifle, which most will recognise as the Tar-21, is the best Assault Rifle in the game, or probably in the entire GTA Series. It has an amazing rate of fire and accuracy.


Sticky Bomb

The Sticky Bomb, which is basically the real-life C4 if a bomb which, well, sticks… in GTA V, throw it at an object, and then use the D-PAD to trigger it to explode.


Jerry Can

Past GTA games have only allowed players to shoot barrels of gas, however GTA V takes that to the next level allowing players to carry a Jerry Can to create a trail of gas, and then shoot it to set it on fire. This can be seen in numerous screenshots for the game and was also seen in Trailer 2 for one of Trevor’s missions.


Tear Gas

Tear Gas is just a standard smoke grenade which once triggered created a smoke screen. Great for creating cover in an open field. It’s also been in previous GTA games such as Vice City and San Andreas. 



Just like the Tear Gas, the Molotov has also been in previous GTA games and is also in GTA V.



Pull the pin, let go, toss it and watch it explode.



The Rocket-Propelled Grenade, or RPG for short, is something which lets say, fires a huge-ass rocket and makes a huge-ass explosion. Great for killing enemies in a wide open space.


Grenade Launcher

The Milkor Multiple Grenade, or M32 is a lightweight 40 mm six-shot revolver-type grenade launcher developed and manufactured in South Africa by Milkor Ltd. 



The M134 Minigun is a 7.62 mm, six-barreled machine gun with a high rate of fire (2,000 to 6,000 rounds per minute). It features Gatling-style rotating barrels with an external power source, normally an electric motor. The Minigun is probably every GTA fan’s favourite weapon.

Sniper Rifles

Sniper Rifle

The Accuracy International AWM is a bolt-action sniper rifle manufactured by Accuracy International designed for magnum rifle cartridge chamberings. Its great for killing people at long distances (obviously) but does have some pretty good accuracy on its own too.


Heavy Sniper

The Heavy Sniper is pretty much the same as the normal Sniper Rifle, however it has more power and better accuracy, however its clip size is smaller.

Light-Machine Guns


The PKM is a 7.62mm general-purpose machine gun that was designed in the USSR. The PKM gun is still in-use as a front-line infantry and vehicle-mounted weapon and is also a modernized version of the PK weighing only 7.5kg without ammo. 


Combat MG

The MK 48 is a lightweight belt-fed machine gun, firing 7.62x51mm NATO cartridges from a disintegrating belt of ammunition. It is about the same as the MG, however has just under double the clip size.
