So, I was watching some screens and I noticed how all guns have an olive finish:

There's more, like the AK's in the first trailer, but this is enough.

I hope they are this color either because they are beta or it is a standard color for guns and you can customize the color of the weapon.

Why do you think they are all green? monocle.gif

The Tavor is green because it's the stock color of the polymer, the others? Sign that the Grove Street Families are returning, come on, it's that obvious.

Could just be for the "pre-release" screen shots and they haven't decided on what the final color finish for each weapon will be. Probably part of the final editing is all.

Same thing could be said about other GTA trailers and screens and items either appearing or disappearing

(re: GTA IV using a Zastava M70 in the trailer and changing it to an AK-47 right before the release)

There is a heist mission where you steal all the guns from the army.

I'm thinking it's because they are from Trevor Phillips' Enterprise. I'm willing to bet he will have a direct line to some military equipment. He was a pilot after all. The green could mean they are military weapons.

In V you'll have multiple ways to get your hands on guns...in multiple colors and sh*t. I want my pistol nickel-plated

Many has said this.

The weapons are probably provided by the FIB.

I think the primary reason, related to artistic direction, is that green is sort of the color 'theme' of this game, as related to the money theme. I expect it to be prevalent in the HUD and UI. It's kind of like the V, as well. V can be found in the door handle of the jewelry store (justified because that's the first letter of the store's name, but I'm pretty sure that the connection to the V in GTA V is intentional), and the peace sign the 'GTA Girl" of GTA V is displaying (also justified in that it's a pretty common hand gesture to pose for, but again I believe that it is intentional).

I think it's likely to be justified within the game that the weapons come from the military installation. But there's also many guns that will come from Ammunation and picked up from police and criminals that you've killed, so that can't be the only explanation. Although I certainly hope that we can customize the look of our weapons.

It's possible that they change color while you level up that skill?

Maybe they have different colors defining where you got them from? [legal/illegal]

Pretty much the most popular color of guns besides regular gunmetal grey or polished metal is a dark green/Olive Drab. Many guns come with that color standard or as an option.


Also, I suspect they added the green guns in these earlier screens as an inside detail. Now that we know the Families as back, I think the green guns were little hints of this. And of course, they were hinting at weapon customization, which is also confirmed now.

This doesn't really relate to the color of the guns in the game, but I'd love to see some Sig Sauer P226's in this this game or some Sig 516's or something.

Not a fan of the green guns at all, they look like plastic toy guns.

Hope its just an optional skin

I reckon green guns are those from army bases/police stations. Normal guns from ammunation and what not, will be standard grey.

I hope the colour is optional. I would go crazy and choose yellow or camo.

In fact at the beginning of the planning of the game
Rockstar wanted to make orange weapons but because all kinds of disagreements
Eventually it was decided that they would be green
