There's a drop weapon or ammo feature in GTA Online but what's the point of dropping your weapon? Does it do anything?

Probably to pass it to another player.

Give it to another player and/or you just don't want to use it anymore because it's too underpowered compared to others you have of the same type.

 

I dropped my normal sniper rifle because the heavy sniper completely surpasses it and I don't want it appearing in my weapon wheel.

So you don't have to scroll through a hundred useless weapons in the heat of battle to get to the gun you want.

Especially when in a vehicle, AP and sticky bomb is all you need.

Less clutter. In the middle of action i'm really not that excited to grab a pump shotgun by accident; driving my car i'd rather just click between AP and grenades, for example. it's just that many less buttons to press. also i like to kick high level weapons to low levels when i'm feeling gregarious.

Save money on getting rid of guns you don't need.

Jesus, why haven't I thought of this! :/

I used this feature to give RPGs to lower levels etc but I hate it when my light sniper is first choice in the weapon wheel, I've often needed the extra second or two I wasted realising i had the wrong sniper and having to change it.

Cheers man!

Goodbye sh*t sniper.

Although it does have a suppressor... Is this handy?

I always drop weapons after survival because I have no use for the combat pistol or any of the SMGs (except the micro) or the machine guns.

I used to think that weapons like the SNS pistol was useless and I dropped it for awhile. But I actually see an advantage to keeping it: more ammo capacity for your other guns.

Pistol and Combat Pistol are redundant. I drop them ASAP.

 

Assault Rifle, Carbine, Advance all useless to me right now since I am favoring the Special Carbine.

 

Sniper is useless compared to Heavy Sniper.

if you drop a weapon is it permanently discarded from your weapon wheel?

You can buy it again at ammunation or pick it up during deathmatches, survivals etc or from dead NPCs

I dropped a buncha weapons once I got the award for having them all. Theres no reason to carry 2 sniper rifles when one is clearly superior.

It unclutters your weapon selection. Don't know about you, but I don't want to have to scroll through 9 weapons to get to the one I want while in a vehicle.

Because that weapons connected to crimes "I had nothing to do with" and it'd be helpful to have someone elses prints on it.

I hope they eventually make it so you can save default settings like your wep wheel order and radio station favorites. That way you can start a session with your favorite weps as the first choice instead of having to scroll to the auto shotgun or advanced rifle instead pulling out the pump shotgun and assault rifle. Or thinking your busting out the combat mg and instead pulling out that pos wep.

No unless it was part of a season pack like the tommy gun.

The regular sniper rifle has better fire rate, though.
