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

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.

Look for more weapons to be added in future DLC!

    That was a part of the Independence Day Special. It was only available for a limited time in GTA Online.

    i can't by the Firework Launcher in gun store on my ps3

    they should add 44 mag. or you should be able to put the mini gun on top of any truck
  • Guest (Guest) August 21, 2014
    Ok just because I am a little sick of seeing people comment this, the assualt rifle in this game is a Norinco Type 56-2, basicly the modern chinese copy of the AK-47, its basicly the same weapon with a few minor details.

    The guns are awesome, the only I thing I think that needs to be better is the gun camos, the orange and platinum camo is both my favorite but the others I dont think are that good, the gold camo is cool but it looks more like a bright orange to me, they need to make the gold camo better by making the brown handle and stuff on the gun black and a more shiny gold camo, the LSPD Camo would be better with a cop outfit also the military camo would be better with a military outfit.

    A update for gta 5 should be where the NPC Enemies can run out of ammo and use a different gun or melee. For example, when the police use all of their shotgun ammo, they will pull out their pistol, after they use all the pistol's ammo, they will use the nightstick.
  • Guess Who (Guest) August 10, 2014
    I think you should add some type of revolver like a Smith&Wesson 500 magnum or a Colt Python 357 magnum. If not a revolver then add some type of sword preferably a katana.
  • Guest (Guest) August 10, 2014
    A plausible update to LSPD and sheriff deputies - They have a Glock 17 or 23 holstered, so they should carry and use it. My point is why not have weapons specific to certain groups? Also, Flashbangs would make NOOSE and Merryweather tactical team encounters more realistic (and formidable). This game has so much untapped potential.

    Gta 5 dlc updates are always a new assault rifle or pistol or a melee weapon. New dlc updates should have atleast a new shotgun or sniper rifle or lmg. Yea they added the musket and firework launcher but not everybody got it since it was available for a limited time. I prefer the musket a sniper rifle though.
