The Micro SMG is a Sub Machine Gun featured in every game in the series since Grand Theft Auto III. It is known as simply Uzi in GTA III; in GTA: Vice City it is called Uzi 9mm on the original PlayStation 2 version and Uz-I on all other versions, and GTA Advance. In all other games it is referred to as Micro SMG.


In GTA Vice City, GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories, the Micro SMG takes the appearance of the full-sized IMI Uzi. In GTA V a smaller variant appears, the Mini Uzi. In GTA III, GTA Advance, GTA San Andreas, GTA IV and GTA Chinatown Wars, the Micro Uzi appears instead, an even smaller version that lacks a stock.

The GTA III version of the weapon features an orange tip on the muzzle, a feature usually reserved for toy weapons. This might imply that Ammu-Nation paint the muzzles of its Micro Uzis before selling them. Since real life criminals often disguise their weapons by painting the muzzle orange, that explanation might be legitimate. It is a weapon of choice for the Yakuza, Southside Hoods and Colombian Cartel.

In Vice City, the Vercetti Gang carry Micro SMGs after the end of the game's storyline. The Micro SMG is also the starting weapon for the players after the regular pistol when advancing from the first points of the games.

In GTA: San Andreas the model has two magazines taped together for easier reloads. The Micro SMG shares the same skill slot as the Tec-9. When Hitman skill level is reached, it can be dual wielded, doubling the player's round count to 100. This sub-machine gun is more commonly used by the Ballas, Varrios Los Aztecas and Da Nang Boys gang members in San Andreas.

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Micro SMG has a 50-round magazine capacity (even though the model shows the dimensions of a 32-round magazine). The weapon has a very limited range, about equal to the Pistol, and will kill multiplayer enemies with about 5 headshots or 10-15 bodyshots. It is probably the weakest weapon in the game, and is only used because of its incredible rate of fire, which makes it a lethal weapon in close quarter combat and the best weapon available for drive-bys.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Micro SMG only has a magazine capacity of 16 rounds (which can be extended to 30 rounds). The weapon has a high fire rate, but low damage and accuracy. Its reputation as a drive-by weapon still stands, but the AP Pistol is far superior as it has a larger magazine, faster rate of fire, greater overall power, and uses the extremely common pistol ammunition. It also excels at decimating enemies on the move, but is outclassed by most SMGs. Unlike previous models, it always features a permanent foregrip.

The Micro Uzi can be purchased from the back-alley gun shops after the mission Do You Have Protection? for $1,200 and each additional magazine costs $100. It can be purchased from Little Jacob for $840 and each additional magazine will cost $20. The Uzi has minimal range and poor stopping power, but it has an extremely fast rate of fire and a 50 round magazine, making it the best weapon in the game for drive-bys or car chases because you can just spray without having to reload.

GTA: Chinatown Wars

  • Can be bought from for $350 after the mission Pimp His Ride.
  • Can be found in numerious red dumsters around the city.
  • Receivable from any gang member.


  • Occasionally, some Ballas gangsters roaming around Davis will be carrying the Micro-SMG.

  • The full-sized Uzi was originally intended to be featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Beta screenshots of the game show the Grove Street Families gang members perform a drive-by with the beta appearance of Big Smoke, Sweet and possibly Ryder or Big Bear. The gun was left out for unknown reasons although the animation for it from GTA Vice City was used for the MP5, when fired. The final version of the game features a Micro Uzi instead. As seen on certain screenshots, CJ can be seen dual-wielding the gun, suggesting that it would share it's skill level with the TEC-9 and the Micro Uzi.
