The Screwdriver is a melee weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

The Screwdriver is a small tool that can be used as a weapon. It is a long, flat-blade screwdriver with a brownish handle.


Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Despite its small size and seemingly harmless appearance, the Screwdriver is a fairly good melee weapon. The screwdriver uses a stabbing motion and can be used to stab victims or damage vehicles. It can kill pedestrians in 1-3 stabs and rarely attracts a wanted level.

Based on the files, it is the strongest of the melee weapons, even surpassing the Chainsaw. Also, it uses a unique animation not see on weapons like the knife.
