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

GTA V Next Generation
GTA V Last Generation
Weapon Selection Wheel

A new system known as the Weapon Wheel has been implemented (previously adopted in Red Dead Redemption), allowing players to carry all weapons instead of one for each type like previous games. 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. It's now possible to keep a firearm with no ammo in reserve.

Weapon stats are displayed on top right corner when selecting them. These will change depends on which attachments have been applied for that weapon.

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. Note that this will not prevent the player from getting a wanted level if a cop sees them shooting.

The Hawk & Little Pistol is a weapon in GTA V. It is based on the Taurus PT92 and uses the .45 ACP cartridge. The Pistol is a very common weapon, with well-rounded stats of damage, accuracy, and range. It can be looted from most dead officers, guards, and gangsters. This weapon is given to the player for the first time in GTA Online by Lamar Davis. Michael and Trevor both start with Pistols when unlocked.

The Hawk & Little Combat Pistol is a weapon in GTA V. It is based on the Heckler & Koch P2000 and the Beretta Px4 Storm. Like the Pistol, the Combat Pistol uses the .45 ACP cartridge, 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. However, it is $250 more expensive, has the same magazine capacity and RPM as the Pistol, but has lower damage than the AP Pistol.

The Vom Feuer 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. However, it is still inferior to the SNS Pistol in terms of damage, and accuracy is between that of the Combat Pistol and Pistol.

The Coil 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.

The Hawk & Little Pistol .50 is a pistol in Grand Theft Auto V, and takes the form of a Desert Eagle (like the Combat Pistol from the previous games). The weapon is a bonus to those who purchased either the Special or Collector's Edition and is available for free in game at Ammu-Nation. Out of all pistols, this is the most powerful pistol in the game which can kill a single civilian in the chest with only one bullet while unsuppressed.

The Shrewsbury SNS Pistol is a small handgun which was introduced in the free Beach Bum DLC. It appears to be based of the AMT Backup, with some elements from the Colt Junior 25. WIth the exact fire rate and accuracy than the Pistol; the SNS Pistol loses out at long range and has no upgrades other than an extended magazine.

The Shrewsbury Micro SMG is a Submachine Gun in GTA V. Clearly based of the IMI Mini UZI, but features a custom stock. 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. It is the only SMG to be used in drive-by shooting.

The Hawk & Little 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.

The Vom Feuer 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.

The Shrewsbury Pump Shotgun is a weapon in GTA V. It appears to be based on 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. However, it has much better accuracy and range compared to the Sawed-Off Shotgun.

The Shrewsbury Sawed-Off Shotgun is a pump action shotgun in GTA V, based on the Mossberg 500 . It is given for free to the player in GTA Online if registered on the Rockstar Games Social Club. It is the only "two-handed" gun that can be shot from a vehicle, as it is able to be usable in one or both hands. With one of the highest damages of guns in the game, the Sawed-Off Shotgun is perfect at point-blank range, but useless at ranges over about 10-20 feet.

The Vom Feuer 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.

The Hawk & Little Bullpup Shotgun is based on the Kel-Tec KSG. It has a 14 round ammunition capacity thanks to its dual-tube internal magazine, a moderate rate of fire, about the same as the Pump-Action Shotgun, and like most shotguns, lethal stopping power at close range. While it doesn't do as much damage as the fully automatic Assault Shotgun, it's still a fairly balanced weapon.

The Musket is primarily designed to resemble the British Land Pattern Musket, a.k.a. "Brown Bess" muskets that were used by the Americans and Great Britain during the Revolutionary War, but it has a curved stock. Since it only holds one round, it is inadvised to use this weapon as its reload time is longer than the other shotguns. However, it is already unlocked for players at level one, making it their first shotgun.

The Shrewsbury Heavy Shotgun is a weapon in GTA V. It is based on the Saiga 12K shotgun. Its firing rate is a little bit slower than the Assault Shotgun, but is deadlier at close range. Instead of using buckshot it uses slugs which makes it good for hitting enemies while aiming at them without losing accuracy.

The Vom Feuer Carbine Rifle is an Assault Rifle in GTA V. It appears to be based on the Heckler & Koch HK416. A step up from the Assault Rifle, the Carbine Rifle is very well-rounded. The only similarities the Carbine Rifle has to the Assault Rifle are they both share the same range, and magazine capacity.

The Vom Feuer 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. However, the Advanced Rifle is still superior to all non-DLC assault rifles in-game.

The Shrewsbury MG is a Light Machine Gun in GTA V. It appears to be based on the PKM. The regular squared-shaped magazine is replaced by a drum magazine similar to that of the RPD. 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.

The Combat MG is a light machine gun in GTA V. It boasts the highest ammo capacity per magazine in the game after buying the extended clip, next to the minigun, which the latter holds everything in one magazine without reloading. This weapon also has the highest damage per bullet out of all of the assault rifles, SMG's and LMG's. 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, further range, and higher damage.

The Gusenberg Sweeper is a weapon featured in the Valentine's Day Massacre Special content pack. It is based on the M1928A1 Thompson while the stock is derived from the later M1 Thompson. It is fitted with a drum magazine, but incorrectly holds 30 rounds. If extended magazines are chosen, it will hold the correct 50 rounds. This weapon does not share ammunition with other SMGs. It instead shares ammo with the belt-fed machine guns.

The Vom Feuer 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. It has the fastest fire rate of any of the weapons in the sniper class and is even useful for face to face combat. Its downside is the fact that it's incapable of zooming in.

The Shrewsbury 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.

The Shrewsbury Grenade Launcher is an explosive weapon in GTA V. Based of the Milkor MGL, it incorrectly holds 10 grenades, instead of 6. With slightly lower damage, range, and a higher price tag, the Grenade Launcher is not as powerful as the RPG. However, it can hold 10 grenades at a time unlike the RPG.

The Coil 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.

The fireworks launcher, added with the Independence Day Special, is a simple, apparently home-made launching tube for firework rockets designed to resemble the RPzP Panzerschreck. It's a simple metal pipe extended at the rear end with a cardboard tube and a piece of metal to give it the length and overall shape of an RPG, along with a wooden grip and stock.

The Hawk & Little Tear Gas is a thrown weapon in GTA V. When it is thrown, it will slowly lower the target's health. However, this is unlikely, due to the fact enemies will most likely run away once they see it.  Because of this, Tear Gas can be useful for clearing a group of people, or crowded room.

Jerry Cans can be used to douse objects in gasoline and shot to ignite it. Because the player can pour a trail of gasoline, the player is less likely to catch fire, as with the case with Molotovs. To an addition, a trail of gasoline will assist the player from getting away from a fatal blast area (if the trail ends under a car).

Attachments

Image/Name Description

Suppressor render4
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 S GTAV
Scope M GTAV
Scope L GTAV
Scope
The Scope is a weapon attachment in GTA V. It grants limited zoom capability to some weapons and improves overall accuracy on others. Depending of the gun, a different scope is attached. The first one is often fitted in SMGs and is the smaller one. The second one mostly fitted in assault rifles and is a bit bigger than the previous one. The third one is a tan-colored scope fitted in MGs and is the most bigger of the three.
Pistol Mag1 GTAV
Pistol Mag2 GTAV
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. Some of them reuses an extended version of the magazine, while others just rechanges it into a much bigger magazine (such the Assault Shotgun and the Combat MG).
Grip GTAV
Grip
The Grip is a weapon attachment in GTA V. It increases the accuracy of weapons it is attached to and reduces recoil.
Flashlight GTAV
Flashlight2 GTAV
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.
Sniper Scope1
Sniper Scope2
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.

Finishes

Most firearms on the game can be painted in various colors, called "tints" on the game. There are 7 tints: Army, being a 2-tone desert tan/brown; LSPD, dark blue; Green; Orange, usually mostly black with orange secondary features; Pink; Gold and Platinum. There are as well unique tints only available to certain guns, new in the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update. The Yusuf Amir Luxury Finish is available for the Marksman Rifle, Carbine Rifle, Assault Rifle, Micro-SMG and SMG. The Gilded Gun Metal Finish is available for the Advanced Rifle, Sawed-Off Shotgun and AP Pistol. The Platinum Pearl Deluxe Finish is available for the Pistol .50. The Etched Wood Grip Finish is available for the Sniper Rifle and Heavy Pistol.

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 appearances in-game of a customized Robinson Armament XCR-L with a vertical fore-grip and a telescopic sight, but it cannot be used. It is seen in the Ammu-Nation commercial and in Righteous Slaughter 7.
  • In GTA Online, weapon attachments unlock as you increase your rank. For example, you unlock the Advanced Rifle at Level 70 and the Extended Clip for the Advanced Rifle at Level 71.
  • 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. On the PC version, it can be done by pressing "G" whilst aiming. It is available in both first and third person modes.
  • In all of the versions of the game it is noticeable (however it is more noticeable if you use first person) that the reload animations are rushed. The Pistol in example lacks a bolt animation.
