The Gold SMG is a submachine gun in The Ballad of Gay Tony.


The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Gold SMG appears as a gold-plated, standard length IMI Uzi submachine gun with the folding stock removed. Its design is similar to the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City rendition of the Micro SMG.


The Ballad of Gay Tony

The Gold SMG has the same stopping power, accuracy and quite similar firing sound as the Micro SMG, and is, basically, a full-length replacement. However, the rate of fire is different, as it fires much faster than the Micro SMG (though in reality the full sized Uzi has a slower rate of fire). It has a 30-round magazine, as opposed to the Micro SMG's 50-round magazine. Also, the reload is somewhat longer.

Because it is much bigger than the Micro SMG, Luis and the multiplayer character hold it with two hands, firing from the chest area. This gun, while being similar to the Micro SMG from Grand Theft Auto IV and The Lost and Damned, has such an astounding rate of fire that it is one of the best guns for ground warfare, and it is not bad for drive-by. The only flaw of the gun is its poor accuracy, although as a drive-by weapon it is quite effective to puncture tires.

A major advantage to this compared to other SMGs is that the light recoil can allow one to shoot accurately for an extended period of time, somewhat bypassing its main weakness.

The Ballad of Gay Tony

  • After completing Yusuf Amir's final mission, he will award the player with his car and the Gold SMG in the glove compartment (though the weapon will be obtained when entering the car for the first time only).
  • Completing the story will automatically give the player a Gold SMG if they do not already have one.
  • Completing the story will unlock the Gold SMG in Armando's Gun Van, costing $5,000 for the gun, and $60 for each magazine.
  • Spawns in the table of Luis' apartment after finishing 50 Drug Wars (spawns only after completing the game).


The Ballad of Gay Tony

  • Yusuf Amir has a Gold SMG and it seems to be his primary weapon. He also claims that the gun is solid gold, but this would make the gun very heavy and gold would be too soft for the internal workings of the gun. It is possibly gold-plated, or covered in gold leaf.
