I like the carbine rifle way more than the advanced rifle but that is just my opinion.
The carbine rifle is my favorite weapon along with the 50.cal pistol and the heavy sniper rifle

Yeah, love the carbine, its my go to rifle. Second fav is combat mg, and ap pistol in vehicle.

Last night was my first time testing the guns as I went for my first time on the train and went from 1 to 5 star wanted level.  Once I got to five stars I had some fun with the guns testing them all out.


I'd go with the Advanced Rifle, Minigun (lol), and SMG.


SMG is still badass, as it was since GTA III, loved it there too, Vice City as well, etc...

I'm kinda hooked on the combat MG at the moment. Assault shotgun, too. Looking to get the heavy sniper, once rank requirement met. I use the micro mg in vehicle, mostly...stupidly to save using AP ammo...even though I'm full to the brim of all ammo. I'll probably change around, over time, just to use some of the gear I NEVER use. Also, to test which are better in different situations. Although I've only got the regular sniper, it's still satisfying seeing the arrow turn red, from a hit. I agree about the sound of the silenced shotty.. like professional metal being spat out.

Micro smg with extended clip. Franklin's ability and a bullet time drive by beats anything.

Special Carbine

Assault Shotgun

Heavy Sniper (Rarely use it in SP, mostly used to shoot off police helicopter rotors)

Sticky bombs

Hatchet, love running around hitting people with it  :evilgrin:




Flare Gun, it's fun especially if you flare up a area before a cutscene. Still hoping SP gets it

the Muskette.


I love musketteing people.


Especially lining up the shot and hitting 3 or 4 at once with a single ball.

There's so many good weapons in the game it's very hard to pick a favorite. The sticky bomb, minigun, railgun, assault rifle, stun gun etc, to name a few.

If I had to say what I use the most though, it'd be the Assault Rifle.

The combat pistol and vintage pistol both have a good balance of fire rate and damage.  The only time I use the AP pistol is when im caught reloadin and need a lot of bullets in a pinch.  Mid range, I love the special carbine.  Long range, I like the marksman rifle.  If I just want to rain down hell on somebody, Combat MG and rocket launcher are my best friends.  When im drivin, I like the uzi.  The quickest way to shred blaine countys finest at 100mph.

I liked to use long range weapons and pick targets off as strategically as possible, which in a game like GTA, didn't happen often.

Shortrange: Assault Shotgun

Mid Range: Special Carbine or Combat MG or AP Pistol (perfect for out of vehicle shooting)

Long Range: Heavy Sniper (goes without saying)

Other: Minigun for destroying helis or vehicles or the Homing Launcher or Grenade Launcher for deathmatches


My choices pretty much follow this - http://gaming.newbco...matches-online/

Consistent gun: Combat MG, good range, rate of fire and damage, useful for medium range battles.

Long range gun: Heavy Sniper, 1 hit gun if aimed above the body and with extended scope, an invaluable weapon for long range sniping.

Short range gun: Assault Shotgun, crazy rate of fire, can annihilate drivers about to hit you and fairly powerful damage.

Also AP Pistol, ditto for Assault Shotgun and drive-by king.

Okay, do you prefer a short range weapon? mid range weapon? or long range weapon?


What is best suits your expertise?


I prefer short range and mid range then long range.


:) My most favourite weapon of mid range is Carbine rifle.


My favourite short range is the ordinary shot gun.


And most favourite other short range is silenced weapons like small SMG's..


Unless you like heavy weapons?


Long range. Heavy or Bolt action sniper.
