There are four weapons in Grand Theft Auto, plus your trusty fists. You'll find them by smashing the crates found in various places throughout the three cities.
Not the most effective of weapons, but useful for beating up unsuspecting pedestrians. Requires very close range and cannot kill anyone, just immobilize them for a few seconds.
A decent weapon which kills in 1 hit, but has a slow rate of fire and isn't the easiest to aim with. There is a ton of ammo for it across the city though, so you'll most likely always have one of these.
A very useful weapon to pick up. Occasionally you'll be given this weapon for a Kill Frenzy. It has a high rate of fire, which makes it easier to aim and can take out a car, or a bunch of pedestrians in a matter of seconds.
Fire kills. And so does this weapon. Very rare though.
As youd expect, the rocket launcher is the most powerful weapon in the game, but also the hardest one to find.
Grand Theft Auto also has a number of powerups which can improve your performance in game.
Grab some body armor and you'll be able to survive up to 4 hits instead of dying from one gunshot.
Pick up one of these to give you another chance to survive in game.
