GTA San Andreas Weapons Guide: All Weapons List & Stats


Grand Theft Auto San Andreas Weapons List & Guide

On this page you find the full list of weapons in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. This complete GTA San Andreas Weapons Guide includes all Guns, Rifles, Explosives, Melee, and every weapon featured in the game.

Weapons can be found and picked up from various locations around the San Andreas map, and several of them can be purchased via Ammu-Nation (prices are 20% higher in Las Venturas).

Weapons Skill Upgrades

In GTA San Andreas, you can upgrade your skill and proficiency with each weapon. Your weapon skill increases with every accurate shot you land, including the Shooting Range at Ammu-Nation. You can view weapon skills by pressing the L1/LT button when holding a weapon, or by checking the weapon stats through the Stats menu.

Several weapons (although not all) have three Skill Levels you can progress through: Poor, Gangster and Hitman, which is reached at maximum weapon skill (100%). The Hitman level allows you to fire while moving and improves lock-on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed when using the weapon.

In addition, reaching Hitman Level for the 9mm Pistol, Sawn-off Shotgun, Tec-9 and Micro SMG allows you to Dual Wield these weapons.
