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


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 (using the real-life GTA V app) and help distract enemies.

Look for more weapons to be added in future DLC!

    Definitely a glitch. Try reloading the game or load a previous save. If that doesn't work you may need to contact Rockstar Support.

    I see we have a weapons expert on our hands here. You call him a CoD fan boy but yet you are the dingle berry who brought it up, so im starting to question who the real fanboy is..besides, you know what COD really stands for? Chokes on Dicks, which is what you can do...on a serious note, keep the odd ball weapons coming. Chainsaws and flame throwers..swords..throwing stars...sledge hammers...
