Weapons in Grand Theft Auto 2 consist of a mixture of existing equipment brought over from Grand Theft Auto and additional weaponry that range from the realistic to the outlandish, in line with its futuristic settings. The weapons offered include firearms carried by the player, in addition to vehicle-mounted weaponry.

Weapons in GTA 2 may be picked up in a wider variety of methods; in addition to conventional weapon pickups throughout the city, the player may acquire weapons by crushing vehicles or from deceased gang members and law enforcers.

Weapons returning from GTA[]

The core weapons from GTA were entirely carried over to GTA 2, with a few minor improvements, but are otherwise similar as its predecessors.

Vehicle-based weapons[]

Like standard vehicles, players cannot normally fire a weapon from a vehicle. However, specific vehicles or upgrades allow the player to activate a number of lethal or non-lethal weapons while in a vehicle. Upgrades are typically available by acquiring a weapons pickup, or upgrading a vehicle in a specific garage at a cost, while readily armed vehicles may also be obtained under certain conditions.

Upgrades[]

Name Image Damage per round Rounds per ammunition unit Description
Vehicle Mines

Vehicle Oil Slick
Oilslick-GTA2-icon

Vehicle Bomb
Vehiclebomb-GTA2-icon
10+ 1 An explosive device installed in any vehicle. The bomb may activated at the player's digression and is programmed to detonate moments after an occupant (including the player) enters the vehicle.

Vehicle Machine Guns

Vehicle Flamethrower

Tank Gun
Vehiclerocketlauncher-GTA2-icon
10 n/a A Tank-mounted rocket launcher that passes as the Tank's turret. The Tank's Rocket Launcher functions similarly as the conventional Rocket Launcher, firing projectiles that explode on impact with any object or person.

Name Image Damage per round Rounds per ammunition unit Description
ElectroBaton
ElectroBaton-GTA2-icon
n/a n/a A electric-based melee weapon baton that does not cause damage to pedestrians and cars. It can still be used for script mods.
