The following is a list of weapons that can be used in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.


Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars features 24 separate weapons, where some of them are returning from the 3D Universe, while others acts as replacements (i.e. the Sword being the equivalent of the Katana).

Most weapons can be found in red dumpsters around Liberty City, bought online through Huang's PDA, which are then delivered to the nearest safehouse, or bought from the Liberty City Gun Club.

The Sniper Rifle and the Molotov Cocktail are the only weapons in the game that serve as a mini-game (assembling and making, respectively). The Sniper Rifle is also the only weapon that cannot be bought or carried by the protagonist, excluding missions given.

Unarmed Melee Handguns
Shotguns Submachine Guns Assault Rifles
Heavy Thrown Special

* Works just like a gun, but takes up the "melee" slot.
