My favorite, believe it or not, is still the ol' 9mm pistol. It's everywhere, and I just love it because it's average and it's used so much.


But I wouldn't care which gun I used if I was getting shot biggrin.gif

What I carry:


open hand- I hate the way the brass knuckles look, I'm sure they don't help much, and I can't really remember ever fighting without a weapon available anyway... I actually reloaded once because I accidently picked them up.


Knife/poolstick- Mostly the knife for the uber-kewl stealth kills; the ability to play pool is cool, but I can grab a stick if I ever feel like playing pool again. IF.


Deagle/Silpistol- Just so I don't get stuck with the dual 9s. The Deagle is great for unmounting passing motorcyclists, while the Silpistol is good for the stealth. In fact the Sil is probably better because it is unique as the only ranged weapon with stealth, but in truth the single-shot kills from the deagle usually don't draw attention in the streets; your milage may vary, however.


SMG- Much more effective then the other two 'options' for this slot, though dual-wielding tech 9s sure is more ganga-sta.


M4- The range on this thing with hitman level means I can kill targets long before they can return fire. The AK has a smaller magazine, but, once again, is more ganga-sta. (Anyone notice any dif in their ranges? I couldn't but would like to hear others' observations.)


Teargas/molotovs- I find these much more useful then the regular grenades or remotes, since their effects persist for some time. During a gang war, for instance, when I see enemies coming from two different directions, I'll cover one side with a screen of these and focus on the other. I actually prefer the tear gas *because* it doesn't make nearby vehicles explode.


Camera- For that awsome zoom and to capture those "special moments".


I "use" the sawn-off shotties because you can run with them, HOWEVER, when I accidentally pick up shotgun shells, the first thing I do is waste them to remove the slot. The ranges of all the shotguns are far too short, meaning an enemy will be close enough to shot you before you can unleash your death cloud of lead. With hitman level, the other weapons (Deagle, Sil, SMG, AK/M4) usually give you a one-headshot-kill at close range anyway.


I DO NOT normally carry a sniper, heavy weapon, IR goggles, dildo (oh geez...), ect, because, as Bhunter said...


"I don't use other weapons, because it takes too long to scroll through the list (R*, please give us weapon hotkeys in the next GTA), plus some are too "clunky"--hard/time consuming to use in a tense firefight."


Sniper=clunky (sorry to all the 'enemy at the gates' fans) The M4 does the same thing without the vertigo...


Remotes= grenades with WAY too much work


The rockets, HS rockets (stingers), and minigun are good for getting all those stars fast for some serious fun, but they're really just overkill.


Clunky also means heavy, as in you can't run with them. The only weapon I can tolerate this prohibition for is the M4. (well, and maybe the minigun too.) I wonder, if they added scissors as a weapon, if you would be able to run with them..?


Screw hotkeys, Hunter, I want to be able to customize the load-out; this would have been far more useful then customizing the clothes. I can carry a rocket launcher with 40+ rockets, hundreds of grenades, ect, but can not carry both a desert eagle AND silenced pistol? CJ can remove his shirt, but not a weapon?


On a side note, I wish the shooting ranges allowed you to actually practice with *all* of the firearms to improve their skills. I got real good with the 9mm pistol and machine pistols using the range; but the Spistol, Deagle, and MP5? Uhhg, I never want to shoot another car in a garage again...


Wow, that's longer then I intended. I'm new here and I guess I had all that bottled up in me. Thanks for letting me share...


In short, the only weapons I ever really use are the SMG and M4.

My favourite weapon has probably got to be the Minigun, the most powerful weapon. It's better than the Rocket Launcher in my opinion. I also like the M4 and AK-47, nice powerful, fast guns. Shame you can't dual wield them though, would be great if you could hold two M4's/AK-47's.


  • Minigun
  • M4
  • AK-47
  • Rocket Launcher

How do you start forest fires? :I Oh and my favourite weapon is double Tech-9's. They are hot.

Forest Fires? I didn't know you could. blink.gif


I'm not sure that you can, try it, but I don't think you can. The only time you can start one is when you're playing the mission "Are you going to San Fierro?". Where you burn the weed in The Truth's field. But other than that, I don't know.

I love the uppercut move with the night stick. Otherwise (in order) AK (Im a counterstrike fan) Deagle (needs better sfx) Molotovs, Sawnoff (I prefer one and dislike the way he holds it though) Dual Mac 10's, and finally the not-so-Minigun

I do the balaclava trick and creep around with a silenced pistol and knife, going to each of the girlfriend's houses and assassinating them. Then I load the game and repeat for a while.

-Pistols (For taking out random peds in close range)

-Shotguns (Police Shootouts or when I want to cause trouble)

-Knife, Bat (Quick and Easy Kills)

-Macs (Quick Kills)

-Molotov Cocktails (Army, Police, Random Ped Kills)

-RPG (When I go on HUGE Killing sprees)


Those would have to be my favorite GTA:SA Weapons.

EDIT: << merged to existing topic >>


I made this poll for different reasons such as helping others decide what weapon(s) to use. I didn't put the Goggles, Camera and Parachute up there because they don't hurt anyone.
