Naturally, punching is a last-resort in the GTA games, lacking the range of firearms and power of melee weapons. Bare-handed attacks have unique properties - for example, they can be chained, causing the protagonist to unleash a series of various punches and kicks, including a stomp or ground-level kick if an enemy is lying prone, the fists can also prove to be almost stealthy in their abilities. In [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], the [[Carl Johnson|player]] is able to learn more powerful moves by fighting and defeating [[gyms|gym]] trainers. The skills obtained in the [[Below the Belt Gym]], which are probably the best, can make the fist attacks very powerful. This is because the combo attack of that gym ends with a "super" punch that can kill any person, no matter the amount of health the person has. [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] introduced new abilities while fighting, including breaking opponents' necks. In the [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] era, fighting was made more advanced, and timing elements were introduced into physical combat to allow dodging and melee counters.
   
In [[GTA IV]], the player would be able to disarm another person who has a melee weapon and keep it as their own.

In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], as seen in the Micheal trailer, fighting tactics returned from GTA IV but some fighting tactics became a bit more professional looking than [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. In the [[Michael (GTA V)|Michael]] trailer, Michael is seen hiting a bald man (As seen in the picture in the left) with his fist and elbow. This probably came out of Max Payne 3, another game developed by Rockstar games.

In [[Grand Theft Auto V]], the player is able to perform not only punches and kicks, but also slaps to the face and sucker punches to knock the opponent out on the first hit if caught by surprise. While sneaking, the player is also able to deliver a karate chop like movement to the neck to immediately knock the opponent unconscious. If the fist is equipped whilst driving, the player can flip off and insult pedestrians. Unlike in Vice City Stories, the player still cannot break opponents' necks from behind.

Fistfight

Fist fight in GTA IV.

Fist-GTA5-ingame

In-game model of 'Fist' in GTA V.

"When all else fails, knuckle down and work with what you've got."
GTA V description on Rockstar Games Social Club.

The Fist is a "weapon" available in all of the Grand Theft Auto games.

DescriptionEdit

The fist represents the unarmed state for the protagonist; he will not draw attention in weapons-free zones, and merely locking onto pedestrians or police will not cause a panic or attract a Wanted level. However, in some GTA games, if you throw punches near someone, there is a chance he/she might attack you or run away. In GTA San Andreas, Locking into an ammu-nation clerk even without any weapons on will instantly cause the clerk to open fire at the player. In some GTA games, fists can be augmented with Brass Knuckles to increase damage.

Naturally, punching is a last-resort in the GTA games, lacking the range of firearms and power of melee weapons. Bare-handed attacks have unique properties - for example, they can be chained, causing the protagonist to unleash a series of various punches and kicks, including a stomp or ground-level kick if an enemy is lying prone, the fists can also prove to be almost stealthy in their abilities. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the player is able to learn more powerful moves by fighting and defeating gym trainers. The skills obtained in the Below the Belt Gym, which are probably the best, can make the fist attacks very powerful. This is because the combo attack of that gym ends with a "super" punch that can kill any person, no matter the amount of health the person has. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories introduced new abilities while fighting, including breaking opponents' necks. In the Grand Theft Auto IV era, fighting was made more advanced, and timing elements were introduced into physical combat to allow dodging and melee counters.

In GTA IV, the player is able to disarm another person who has a knife or a baseball bat and keep it as their own. To do this, the player must first be unarmed and dodge the attack then quickly press the attack ( PS3 Circle for PlayStation and XBox B for Xbox) or counter-attack ( PS3 Triangle for PlayStation and XBox Y for Xbox) button.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the player is able to perform not only punches and kicks, but also slaps to the face and sucker punches to knock the opponent out on the first hit if caught by surprise. While sneaking, the player is also able to deliver a karate chop like movement to the neck to immediately knock the opponent unconscious. If the fist is equipped whilst driving, the player can flip off and insult pedestrians. Unlike in Vice City Stories, the player still cannot break opponents' necks from behind.
