If is it about how the weapon look then V obviously, but when it comes to it`s sounds i`d say IV/EFLC.
While V has the most realistic looking weapons they have really ridiculously unrealistic sounds, that`s for sure.
But IV/ELFC has the most perfect GTA gun sounds.
The mix of those two would be great.
Best: TBoGT. Can't beat the OP explosive shotgun. I LOVE that gun.
Worst: Can't really decide, so my vote goes to Advance.
Agree, that`s got to be the best weapon in whole GTA franchise. Shooting with those explosive shells was unique experience which you just can`t get bored of.
Edit: i`d prefer quality over quantity when it comes to GTA games` weapons. Most of the titles have too many weapons but only few of them are actually effective. I don`t need 25 pieces if 20 out of them are an absolute crap.
Rockstar should really do some research on real life weapons before embarasing themselves with it`s silly sounds and ridiculously low stoping power. Let`s face it, 90% of GTA weapons are way underpowered compare to real life.
In real life even a 9mm handgun with classic FMJ rounds is deadly and 1 good placed shot is ussualy enough to disable a person or even puting them in the ground. While in GTA a 9mm is like an airsoft gun with almost no stoping power.
I think the best real life characteristic had .357 MAG revolver from VC which was almost always 1-shot kill no matter which bodypart you shot someone in.
Which is the case with real life .357 most of the time. Especially with hollow point rounds.
I`m really disapointed with weapon performance and sounds in GTA games. Ridiculously underpowered in it`s performance plus having totaly unapropriate sounds.
I know it`s not a shooting game only but i`d still excpect a little more research by R* on guns. At least in latest titles.
