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!

    I would absolutely love a wild west themed gun update, with a couple of different revolvers, a high power low fire rate lever action rifle, ect, ect.
  • john (Guest) February 28, 2016
    m60 and a chainsaw need to be added
  • IdeaMan (Guest) February 24, 2016
    Here are my weapon ideas...
    Pistol - Glock 17 Gen 4
    AP Pistol - VBR Belgium PDW
    Combat Pistol - FN Five-seven
    Revolver - Smith & Wesson 629
    Heavy Revolver - Smith & Wesson 500
    Underwater Pistol - Heckler & Koch P11
    Taser Shotgun - Taser X-12 (works like a taser but with longer range)
    Assault SMG - Kriss Vector
    Heavy MG - M60(Vietnam)
    Underwater Rifle - APS underwater rifle (shoots in fully automatic instead of semi like the pistol)
    Carbine Rifle - Colt M16A4 MWS

    also add in standard smoke grenades and stun grenades.

    have an update that includes WW2 and maybe WW1 weapons and vehicles like the Nambu Type 14, M1918 BAR, MP40, BREN LMG, Luger P08, M1 Garand, Mauser C96, and Willys MB just to name a few.

    have another update based around prototype weapons and vehicles and modern weapons and vehicles that look futuristic...a good vehicle to throw in would be the Devel Sixteen.

    Rockstar already has an idea started for GTA 6 and it looks like the setting will be Vice City or a place that looks a lot like it and it also looks like the main character is supposed to be a female....not sure if that'll stick though.
