Weapon Wheel in GTA Vice City - The Definitive Edition.

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

Contents[]

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City features 35 different weapons, which greatly expands the arsenal compared to Grand Theft Auto III. There is a wide array of pistols, shotguns, and submachine guns, some of which can be purchased at Ammu-Nation. The game also features the most melee weapons in any GTA game until Grand Theft Auto V, some of which can be bought at various hardware stores.

The initial release of the game for the PlayStation 2 featured names based on their real-life inspiration (i.e. the MP5 and the PSG1). However, subsequently after the release of the original GTA Vice City for the PlayStation 2, Rockstar dropped the real names of the guns, probably due to trademark reasons likely being approached by Heckler & Koch, the manufacturer of the MP5 and PSG1. Therefore some weapons on the list have two names, the first coming from the original PS2 version while the second coming from subsequent PS2 versions and the PC and Xbox versions. There are other physical differences to the guns between the original and subsequent versions, including the Ruger/Kruger is shortened and given a black skin, while the PSG1 is now standard with a mock silencer.

The following table lists weapons based on their types and categories assigned to them in the files.

In-Game

Beta Weapons[]

Main article: Beta Weapons

  • Nailgun: The Nailgun is a weapon that was apparently a cheap, weaker version of the Pistol, manufactured by DUDE. It is the same weapon seen in the store mentioned above.
  • Silver Colt 1911: Possibly a suppressed pistol, the weapon was cut, although the concept was resurrected as the Silenced Pistol in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Despite its name, the pistol was not actually based on the Colt M1911, but rather the Wildey Magnum, a large-calibre semi-automatic magnum handgun. The weapon being suppressed in the game is also erroneous; the long extension seemingly assumed to be a suppressor on the weapon's model is simply the handgun's barrel.
  • Python: A Snub Nose variant of the Python was initially planned for the game, but was dropped during development.
  • MP5K: The MP5K was intended to be included among the other submachine guns, but remained as cutscene-only. It appears to have a wider magazine, possibly stacked with each other for easier reloads.
  • Grenade Launcher: The weapon was originally planned to be usable, but was cut. This weapon is based on the Smith & Wesson 276 Gas Gun, although it is modeled after its variant, the DefTech 1315 37mm Gas Gun.
  • Land Mine: A thrown weapon that was initially made for Grand Theft Auto III.
  • Taser: A small electroshock weapon that was originally made as a melee weapon, but was dropped during development.
  • Steyr Aug: Based on the weapon of the same name, the Steyr Aug is an assault rifle that was originally planned for the game, but remained unused.
  • AK-47: The Grand Theft Auto III rendition of the AK-47 was intended to be featured in the game, but was left unused.
