The following is a list of weapons featured in Grand Theft Auto V.

Ammu-Nation has returned in the game along with an accessible firing range. GTA V also introduces the feature of installing attachments onto certain weapons, which adds a whole new variety to the weapon system.

Weapon Stats and Selection

Weapon Selection

The Weapons wheel.

As seen in this still from the gameplay video, the way the player changes weapons has been changed from previous GTA instalments. A new system known as the Weapon Wheel has been implemented (previously adopted in Red Dead Redemption). There are 8 slots on the wheel to choose from (in clockwise order from the top): the Pistol slot, the MG slot (including SMGs), the Assault Rifles slot, the Sniper Rifle slot, the Melee slot, the Shotgun slot, the Heavy Weapons slot, and the Throwable Weapons slot.

In this screenshot, stats of the weapon are displayed to the player which can be customized through Ammu-Nation. The stats shown in the selection screen include Damage, Fire Rate, Accuracy, and Range. Furthermore, all weapons of each type can be carried simultaneously, which means players can have more than one weapon in the same slot.

Weapon Noise

Each time the player fires a gun, the radar will indicate a red circle to represent the weapon's noise, similar to Manhunt. If any threat is within the red circle, they will be alerted by the player, and if a cop is within the noise range, the player may gain a wanted level. A player can lower the noise by adding a Suppressor to the weapon, but this will reduce damage.

The Pistol is a weapon in GTA V. It is based on the Taurus PT92. Strangely, in game, the Pistol is listed as a .45 ACP pistol, while the PT92 in reality is a 9x19mm Parabellum pistol (in essence, a 9mm weapon).

The Combat Pistol is a weapon in GTA V. It is based of the Heckler & Koch P2000 and the Beretta Px4 Storm. Like the Pistol, the Combat Pistol is listed as a .45 ACP pistol, with its real-life comparisons in 9x19mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, .357 SIG, and .45 ACP. Its advantages over the Pistol are that it is more accurate, does slightly more damage, and has slightly further range.

The AP Pistol is a fully automatic pistol in GTA V. It functions much like the Automatic 9mm from The Lost and Damned. It is similar in appearance to the Colt SCAMP. Compared to the Combat Pistol and Pistol, the AP Pistol has superior damage and rate of fire.

Stun Gun

StunGun-GTA5-ingame

The Stun Gun in GTA V.

The Stun Gun is a semi-lethal weapon in GTA V. Good for incapacitating people, the Stun Gun is far from deadly. However, the Stun Gun can be used to kill people if they are zapped multiple times. It is quite cheap, and is good for making a quick get-away from a situation. In addition, the Stun Gun produces little sound, so it can be as stealthy as a silenced gun. This is the only weapon can be unlocked from 2 different missions. The Stun Gun in-game mainly resembles the Taser M26 with slight overall feel to the Taser X26. It cannot be acquired in multiplayer through legitimate methods.

It has a magazine capacity from the .45 ACP variant of the UZI, although it is probably the 9x19mm Parabellum variant. Like the Pistol, the Micro SMG is fairly rounded, stat wise. It is best in close-quarters situations, such as interiors of buildings because of its high rate of fire.

SMG-GTAV

The SMG in GTA V.

The SMG is a Submachine Gun in GTA V. It is based of the Heckler & Koch MP5. Identical to the Assault SMG in stats, the SMG is superior to the Micro SMG, thanks to its higher damage, accuracy, and range. The SMG can be used more more universally than the Micro SMG because of these higher stats.

AssaultSMG-GTAV

The Assault SMG in GTA V.

The Assault SMG makes an appearence as an unlockable weapon for Social Club members. It appears to be based on the Magpul PDR, with the correct magazine, but lacking the picatinny rail. It also appears to take elements from the FN P90. The only advantage to the Assault SMG is that it is free (offline only) when the player links his or her Rockstar Social Club account to the game.  Like the SMG, the Assault SMG can be used for medium-long, to close quarters situations. It is slightly more suitable than the SMG in close quarters due to cyclicly friring 50 rounds per minute more.

PumpActShotgun-GTAV-inGameModel

The Pump Shotgun in GTA V.

The Pump Shotgun is a weapon in GTA V. It appears to be based off of the Mossberg 590 fitted with a custom stock. Perfect for close-quarters combat, and with destructive damage at close range, the Pump Shotgun lacks long-range capabilities.

AssaultShotgun-GTAV

The Assault Shotgun in GTA 5.

The Assault Shotgun is a fully-automatic shotgun in GTA V. It appears to be based of the UTAS UTS-15. However, unlike the UTS-15, it is shown as using a detachable box magazine. It also shares elements from the AA-12, because of the fact it is full-auto and that it is magazine fed. Having better accuracy and magazine capacity compared to other shotgun, the Assault Shotgun is a very good choice for short-range, and does better than other shotguns at medium range.

AdvancedRifle-GTAV

The Advanced Rifle in GTA V.

The Advanced Rifle is a bullpup assault rifle in GTA V. This weapon resembles the Tavor TAR-21. Boasting the best damage, and fire rate out of all assault rifles, the only downsides to the Advanced Rifle are that it becomes available late in the game, and it is less accurate than the Carbine Rifle.

The drum magazine, however, has an unrealistic default size of 54 rounds. The magazine size is correctly made to 100 rounds if extended magazines are chosen. Having close to the same stats as the Assault Rifle, the MG is very crude and inferior compared to the higher level Combat MG.

Like the Advanced MG in the Ballad of Gay Tony, it is based of the FN M249 but with minor influences from the M60. Superior to the MG, the Combat MG has almost the same stats as the Carbine Rifle, except with lower accuracy, and further range.

The Heavy Sniper in GTA V.

The Heavy Sniper is a semi-automatic sniper rifle in GTA V. Being based on the Barrett M82 sniper rifle, it has an unrealistic 6-round magazine.

  • Cost: $9,500
  • Damage: 9.9/10.0
  • Fire Rate: 2.0/10.0

Marksman Rifle

Marksman Rifle GTAV

The Marksman Rifle in GTA V

The Marksman Rifle is a rifle in GTA V and was introduced in the Last Team Standing Update. It is based on the M39 EMR except with a modified magazine.

Heavy Weapons

RPG

RocketLauncher-GTAV-inGame

The RPG in GTA V.

The RPG is an explosive weapon in GTA V. Clearly based of the RPG-7, it is good for medium range, making it a great weapon for dispatching cars, helicopters, planes, boats, or large groups of enemies. However, it can only fire one rocket at a time, and is relatively expensive.

  • Cost: $6,500
  • Damage: 10.0/10.0
  • Fire Rate: 0.5/10.0

The Minigun in GTA V.

The Minigun is a weapon in GTA V. It is based of the M134 Minigun. The most expensive of the Heavy Weapons, and only bullet based one, the only advantages of the Minigun is its extremely high rate of fire, and magazine capacity. However, the Minigun does not have the explosive, or range capabilities of the RPG. The player will also be slowed down while holding it due to its weight, making them susceptible to damage from enemies.

Attachments

Suppressor

The purpose of a suppressor is to dampen gunshots and hide the flash. It shrinks immensely, even removes the noise circle made when firing the suppressed weapon at the cost of lowered damage and shortened range. The damage/range penalty is differed among different weapons, the greatest suffered being the sniper rifle.

Scope

The Scope is a weapon attachment in GTA V. It grants limited zoom capability to some weapons and improves overall accuracy on others.

Extended Clip

The Extended Clip or Extended Magazine (or mag for short) is a weapon attachment in GTA V. It increases the ammunition capacity of magazine-fed weapons, increasing the amount of bullets able to be fired before having to reload.

Grip

The Grip is a weapon attachment in GTA V. It increases the accuracy of weapons it is attached to and reduces recoil.

Flashlight

The Flashlight is a weapon attachment in GTA V. It projects a beam of light making it easier to see enemies in poorly lit areas, but has a limited range. Others can also become aware of your presence if you have it on while aiming at them, making it a detriment to stealth unless you turn it off ahead of time.

Advanced Scope

The Advanced Scope is a weapon attachment for Sniper Rifles in GTA V. It has a greater zoom range than the standard sniper rifle scope, essentially maxing it out and giving a higher accuracy boost than the normal scope. It can also work as a thermal scope during certain missions in the game.

Trivia

  • The weapon prices listed here depend on the medals earned in the shooting range. There is a 10% discount for finishing all the challenges with a bronze medal, 15% for all silver or higher, and 25% for all gold.
    • This is also separate for each individual character.
  • Due to overused sound effects, most fully-automatic weapons are implied to be firing noticeably faster than their actual rate of fire.
    • The MG, however, is implied to fire slower.
  • Handguns in GTA V are the only weapon class in which reloading differs when the magazine is empty or not.
  • There are some appearences in-game of a customized Robinson Armament XCR-L with a vertical foregrip and a telescopic sight, but it cannot be used. It is seen in the Ammu-Nation commercial and in Righteous Slaughter 7.
  • The name of the "Extended Clip" customization is incorrect, since the applicable weapons use magazines, not clips.
  • In GTA Online, weapon attachments unlock as you increase your rank. For example, you unlock the Advanced Rifle at Level 90 and the Extended Clip for the Advanced Rifle at Level 91.
  • DLC weapons are located next to the original ones, listed in the appearances order (i.e., the Gusenberg Sweeper will be before the Bullpup Rifle). However, the Sawed-off Shotgun can be placed here first if the Assault SMG is available.
  • Sometimes, guns dropped on the ground by NPCs will randomly discharge, as seen here.
  • As demonstrated on the gameplay video, weapon system on advanced GTA V edition now introduces the ability to throw grenades while holding a weapon. It is done by either pressing Left on the D-pad, or by swiping the Dualshock 4 touchpad upwards. It is available in both first and third person modes.
