GTA San Andreas Weapon Guide (2012)

Recommended Posts

There is a huge difference between the streaming files that are responsible for spawning buildings and other objects when CJ moves to different areas of the map. PS2 has many more files. I have no idea why these were changed. The most notable differences are that PS2 has more vehicles, and PC has more decorative objects. I could point out a few but this would be way off topic. I'm arguing that the pickups (weapons in particular) are the same in all versions.

 

I'm sorry, I don't know where this Hobo's Express is located (found it with the cocktails). The sniper rifle on the balcony west of the Mulholland West 24/7 you showed earlier I'm pretty sure is always a sniper rifle. This is a screenshot of the rocket launcher in Los Santos found on top of the taller building one block west of the Glen Park pond.

I don't know what's up with Radioman's collectible bonuses. If it's just him then let's chalk it up to a glitch with his game, or maybe he just missed it. If others are reporting the same problem then maybe we should look into it more closely.

 

Added: I just used the Japanese Save Editor to compare the sequence of pickups in "clean" In the Beginning saves for PS2v1 and PCv1 and found a 1:1 correlation between all the pickups. I did not compare locations or ammo for the pickups, just that pickups 0 thru 554 are the same kind and type. The only differences I found were the extra 2 player pickups on PS2, and one of the save disks on PS2 was recently used to save the game - on PC I used a cleo script to save so the save disks are untouched.

What I've picked up every single Thermal goggle and I have lost them? Does this mean I won't get them back in the game? cry.gif

There are 4 spawn points, maybe you missed one. Otherwise, if you collected them and saved afterwards then they are gone. It's possible to replace them with mods/edits/cheat device codes but not through normal gameplay.

 

Night vision goggles respawn normally. Perhaps add availability info for the goggles. They are added to the map after... (I forget).

 

Thermal Goggles after Black Project

Night Vision Goggles after Breaking the Bank at Caligula's

 

I was under the impression that PS2 and PC versions have the same pickups (except PS2 has two-player pickups).

 

Normal respawn time for weapons is 6 minutes. The sniper rifle on the hill south of the SF airport, and fire extinguishers in fast food joints will respawn in 45 seconds. These fast respawn weapons will not appear on new games started after loading an existing save because they are created by data files and not the game scripts.

 

Would the note on special melee damage from the parachute be more appropriate in the description for the parachute since that is the icon showing when it works?

 

The purple dildo does not spawn in the LV police station; it can only be found in the shared LS/Dillimore station, or in Millie's house (Millie's won't respawn). The silver vibe spawns by a dumpster in Bayside. The other sex toys are unused by the standard game.

I am sure I haven't forgotten any location. I have taken it form Madd Dogg's crib, Zero's RC shop, The Big Ear and from Area 69. So that means I don't have it anymore??

Nope, this one isn't mentioned at all.It's a bit difficult to explain without the screenshot, but I'll try.

 

When you're on the first mission in the game and when you're aproaching the carpark where you split up it's the first big building on your left, the grenades are right after you go up the stairs. On that building behind you can find the Ballas tag and some trash cans. I hope you can get it. I will upload the screenshot as soon as I can. smile.gif

Yes I know where it is. But, Tear gas is the least effective weapon in the game. Hardly worth mentioning.

There are Many More weapons and body armour locations in San Andreas.

Just keep shooting til you run out. The count shows but it will reload.

How do i get infinite ammo? i have 100% and it still is showing numbers confused.gif do i need to go down to 0?

...And that is why I prefer to call this undecreasing ammo rather than infinite.

 

It works that way: every bullet you shoot off the clip will be substracted from your bullet clip count, but at the same time, it will be added to your total bullet count for that weapon. In the end, when you reload, you will be with the same amount of bullets you started with.

 

The total count can be increased by picking up weapons or ammo for them.

 

The total count cannot be decreased! The exceptions are: Molotovs, Grenades, Satchel Charges, Smoke Grenades and Camera. These weapons have their amount decreased no matter what.

 

The total count can be depleted by being wasted (if not dating Katie); busted (if not dating Barbara); by picking an inconsistent weapon for the same slot or by running out of ammo for the weapons mentioned above.

 

Reload animations still apply to their full extent.

 

Thats all there's to it.

Real good guide Th3MaN1. I have a question, hopefully not off topic, the tear gas you can get is affective for escaping, right? but when I use it and the people start coughing and I bring out a knife and stealth kill one person in the gases range, it will auto stealth kill all at the same time in the gas. I believe its a weird glitch. if you could, some one try it to prove if its a glitch or not? thanks. again Great guide Th3MaN1 cookie.gifcookie.gif

absolutely fantastic and thorough guide :karmaeater:

 

my favorite all-rounder has to be the M4 :cool: beats the AK due to the larger clip size

Yes it works on my ps3 version, i read the whole thing ( dont know if it gets updated ) but the rifle ( sh*tty sniper ) also spawns somewhere on a rock in the forest area ( i know its useless since i dont know spot but its not fully updated unless some1 made a map where all weapons are ).

Here's an easier skill glitch: just continuously fire at a car tire, train, tram, Bulletproof vehicle, wrecked vehicle (correction needed) or a Rhino.

Also, the ammunition glitch does give you unlimited ammo. I've fired an M4, D. Eagle, and Combat Shotgun all night long. Next morning, the ammo counter is still gone.

The game is supposed to Not allow skill points when used against Invalid targets, like already wrecked vehicles.
