Did a search for this but didn't find anything.

 

First let me say that I am a new VCS player, but not new to the GTA franchise.  I first starting playing VC [PC] several years ago, then went to SA [PC].

 

Anyway, I haven't gotten very far yet, but wanted to share this.

 

After you complete the intro mission, but before doing anything else, you can kill a few of your army "buddies" and get their M16's (or M4's).  Once your wanted level gets to 3 stars or so, go back into your barracks, collect the pistol, save the game, re-load, and repeat as many times as necessary to max out the ammo on the rifle and pistol, plus you get full health back and your wanted level is cleared.

 

You could also collect the pistol before saving and when you re-load the save it will have reappeared.

 

My apologies if I am posting something already known.

I found this out for the first time myself yesterday (Despite playing GTA VCS for a long while haha) when I was with someone trying out VCS on a PSP Emulator and they went around testing the controls by killing some Army members.

 

I think it's a pretty helpful fact :p

That... Spoiled the story for me.

...Not really, but you might wanna use spoilers since it's clear that the guy just started the game.

I already knew that before starting the second mission.
 it's not worth the effort. sure you will get your weapons back if you get killed and if you got $2000 but your gonna lose them after a few missions  :sarcasm:

Oops, sorry. I am using mobile version for fast answers and don't have spoiler tags ability. My fault but I though that nobody can't expect being a soldier all throughout the "illegal activity-crime simulation" game.

True for someone who is familiar with the game.  That someone isn't me though.

Airport would be a better and closer choice, but the weapons would despawn after you leave the area either way.

I did use that trick a few times. It came in handy as well.
