Many weapons have some customization options such as the attachments listed above but you can also get color tints for some too. Note attachments have benefits such as grips increasing accuracy.

Weapon Customization

When GTA 5 releases we'll have an extensive Weapon Customization Guide.


Grand Theft Auto 5 features the weapon wheel used in Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. Weapons are split into classes such as pistols, rifles, thrown, etc. When selecting a weapon, the accessories show in the middle of the wheel so you know if a gun has a supressor or extended clip. You can carry multiple weapons of the same class. Unlike Niko tossing away empty guns in GTA IV, you won't lose your guns in Grand Theft Auto V. This will help save you plenty of money at gun shops. iGTA5

GTA 5 Weapon Wheel

Getting Weapons

Grand Theft Auto IV removed the infamous Ammu-Nation gun stores due to a crackdown in Liberty City but Ammu-Nation makes its return in Grand Theft Auto V. iGTA5

GTA 5 Ammu-Nation

As for obtaining weapons off of fallen enemies or back alleys, GTA IV introduced weapons lying on the ground in a more realistic fashion but in order to make them visible to players they had a red-orange glow. In Red Dead Redemption, weapons had a bright white shine to catch your attention. In GTA V the weapons are on the ground and flash white to get your attention.

Animals as weapons

Dogs can assist in taking down enemies or on the other side keep you out of certain areas. Chop can be controlled to some extent by Franklin and help distract enemies.

GTA 5 Franklin and Chop

Look for more weapons to be added in future DLC!

    Ok Gta 5 needs a lot more guns and I know what they should add:
    Pistol: Magnum 357.
    Shotgun: Spas-12
    Assault rifle: Scar-L
    Sniper rifle: Dragunov SVD
    Special: Cross-Bow
    Thrown: Emp grenade (disables your car, phone, GPS/map for 30 seconds)
    Melee: Katana
    Smg: FN-P90

    If anyone doesn't agree with me what would you have put instead?

    I am a little bit disappointed that they choosed the QBZ-95 instead of the FAMAS-G2 or F1, but no, they had to take the Chinese copy version...

    They shouldn't add another assaut rifle. The bullpup rifle looks just like the assault smg only smaller, if they're going to add another assault rifle
    at least make it have a different design than the other guns, and maybe a special attachment that the other assault rifles don't have. If I was going to choose the assault rifle, I would pick the m16, its a classic and its 3 round burst, a rifle that's not automatic for the first time.

    what's the point of the sns pistol if it has the smallest clip size and no other upgrades instead of a extended clip
  • Guest (Guest) March 28, 2014
    having a dog or something would be cool but it would be useless against other actual people in Online since they would just shoot it since they have intelligence unlike the other npc's in GTA V
  • kingq_22 (Guest) March 25, 2014
    they should put dogs or animals in gta Online to help assist u if ur on a rampage

    You either need to connect your console to the internet to receive the updates (DLC) or get codes from the Special or Collector's Edition (SE/CE) as noted for those weapons.
  • me (Guest) March 13, 2014

  • Da main man (Guest) March 03, 2014
    i meant to say the heavy pistol looks like a m1911 PISTOL not piston, that would make no sense
