You may be looking for Weapons in GTA V.


The Agency Armory, used to purchase discounted weapons, upgrade selected weapons into Mk II variants, buy Body Armor and Parachutes and an equipment section where they can also buy Rebreathers, Night Vision goggles and ear pieces.

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



Reference Meaning
[CE] Only available in Collector's Edition (PS3, Xbox 360) & Enhanced Version (PC, PS4, Xbox One).
[EV/E&E] Only available in the Enhanced Version (PC, PS4, Xbox One) and Expanded & Enhanced (PS5, Xbox Series X/S).
[RP] Available to all players who have completed the "Prologue" mission on the PS3 or Xbox 360 versions of Grand Theft Auto V and then upgraded to the Enhanced Version (PC, PS4, Xbox One).
[R*] Available to all players who create a Rockstar Social Club account and link it with their Playstation Network or Xbox Live account.
[DLC] Available from a DLC (Downloadable Content) update.
[MOD] Weapon has attachment options.
[M] Only appears during a mission.


Grand Theft Auto Online features 101 separate weapons.

  • 63 of these were added as part of a DLC.
  • 43 of these are exclusive to the enhanced version of the game (Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC).
  • 12 are "Mark II" variations and upgradable from their base versions.

Unlike other installments where a single weapon of each class can be carried at once, players are able to carry all weapons at the same time, selecting melee weapons and firearms at their disposal. Firearms now feature a wide array of Attachments for customization, which increases the general performance of them (i.e. scopes for better zoom and accuracy). Even if there is no ammo for a firearm, they are still kept for later when the player replenishes ammo, which restores each weapon's magazine and the rest for the class in general (say, if the player spends all ammo on a single handgun like the Pistol, other handguns will still have their own rounds loaded into the magazine, so the player can switch to them as last resource).

The following table lists weapons based on how the Weapon Wheel assigns them.

Melee Handguns Shotguns
Submachine Guns &
Light Machine Guns
Assault Rifles Sniper Rifles
Heavy Weapons Thrown Weapons Special

Vehicle Weapons[]


These weapons are not available for use in the game, but are often depicted in several ways, often in in-game media. Unlike in-game weapons, most of them are exact representations of their real-life counterparts.


  • An artwork of the Bullpup Rifle released during the run-up to the High Life Update suggests that it was originally going to be modeled after the L85A2, featuring the same receiver, handguard, charging handle and carrying handle.



  • In one of the screenshots prior to the release of Grand Theft Auto V, the Advanced Rifle was more correctly modeled after a CTAR-21, but was possibly changed due to possible copyright issues.
  • The Carbine Rifle was originally made with a different handguard to fit a Rail Cover, but the attachment was discarded and the handguard was slightly changed to extend the attachment rails.
  • Two of the column shifter levers available as a customization on Benny's Original Motor Works use pieces to resemble firearms parts. The first one, "6 Shooter", is a loaded 6-round cylinder of a revolver, and the second one, "Pistola (pistol)", uses a classic wooden pistol grip.


  • Loudhailer: The Loudhailer is described as a white hand-held electric megaphone (albeit with a plain silver tint and no accessories attached). Although it is unobtainable, its textures and model can be found in the games files.
  • Fire Extinguisher: The Fire Extinguisher is a tool that is seen used by firefighters, but are unusable by the player. Despite this, it has its own data and can be assigned to the player's inventory via trainers, but its only purpose is to set fires off, as it is harmless against targets.


  • Due to overused sound effects, most fully-automatic weapons are implied to be firing noticeably faster than their actual rate of fire.
    • The MG, however, is implied to fire slower.
  • Handguns in GTA Online are the only weapon class in which reloading differs when the magazine is empty or not.
  • Weapon attachments unlock as you increase your rank. For example, the player unlocks the Advanced Rifle at Rank 70 and the Extended Clip for the Advanced Rifle at Rank 71.
  • DLC weapons are located next to the original ones, listed in the appearances order (i.e. the Gusenberg Sweeper will be before the Bullpup Rifle). However, the Sawed-off Shotgun can be placed here first if the Assault SMG is available.
  • Sometimes, guns dropped on the ground by NPCs will randomly discharge.
  • As demonstrated on the gameplay video, weapon system on the enhanced edition of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online introduces the ability to throw grenades while holding a weapon. It is done by either pressing Left on the D-pad, or by swiping the Dualshock 4 touchpad upwards. On the PC version, it can be done by pressing "G" whilst aiming. It is available in both first and third person modes.
