Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories is a 2006 sandbox/action adventure game. It is a prequel to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and is only available for the PS2 and PSP.


The following weapons were used in the videogame Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories:

Contents


Handguns

Beretta 92F

The Beretta 92F is the standard pistol in the game. It holds 17 rounds, as opposed to the real weapon's usual 15-round capacity (real 17-round Beretta magazines have a deeper base, and weren't available during the game's setting). It is carried by the VCPD, National Guard Soldiers and most gangsters.

Inside the Ammu-Nation store of the North Point Mall, some of the displayed Beretta 92F pistols have elongated slides, while others have shortened slides (like the Beretta 85FS).

Colt Python

The Colt Python returns; this time it is referred to as the "Equalizer", and comes with a non-functional telescopic sight. It usually kills with one shot, at the cost of a slow rate of fire. Armando Mendez notably uses one during the mission "Domo Arigato Domestoboto", but only in the PS2 version (in the PSP version, he uses a Beretta 92F instead). In full-motion cutscenes, the weapon is shown without a scope.

Shotguns

Over and Under Shotgun

The Over and Under Shotgun returns from Liberty City Stories, and still function erroneously as a pump-action shotgun. Once again, it can be found in police cars, and is carried as a self-defense weapon by gun shop owners.

Browning 5.25 O/U - 12 gauge
In-game model.

Mossberg 500 Sawed-Off

A sawed-off left-handed Mossberg 500 appears as the "Stubby Shotgun". It has a wider shot spread than the other shotguns, but a shorter range.

Franchi SPAS-12

The Franchi SPAS-12 returns with its semi-automatic function and 7-round magazine, but this time with the stock unfolded.

Submachine Guns

Skorpion Vz. 61

The Skorpion Vz. 61 replaces the TEC-9 from previous games, and retains its 50-round magazine capacity rather than the correct 20-rounder from the real Skorpion.

Skorpion Vz. 61 - .32 ACP
In-game model.

MAC-10

The MAC-10 returns, but this time it has a slower rate of fire and comes with a non-functioning suppressor (and a rather stubby one to boot).

In-game model.

Uzi

The Uzi is carried by SWAT and some gangsters. It has decent accuracy, but like the MAC-10 it has a slower fire rate than in Vice City and Liberty City Stories.

IMI Uzi - 9x19mm
In-game model.

Heckler & Koch MP5K "Reverse Stretch"

The "SMG" is carried by the FBI and US Army, as well as by some gang members. It is based on the Heckler & Koch MP5K "Reverse Stretch" variant, weapon created by combining an MP5K front end with a full-size MP5 receiver. Unlike a real gun, the vertical front grip is missing, and instead it is strangely used a protrusion on the front end of the gun, enlarged and inclined; and the muzzle almost appears to be an attempt at an MP5SD suppressor (it extends past the forearm, but is thicker than a barrel should be).

Assault Rifles

AK-47

The AK-47 appears in the game, with good stopping power and accuracy. It is carried by several gangsters, and is notably used by Jerry Martinez and Diego Mendez.

AK-47 - 7.62x39mm
In-game model.

XM16E1

The XM16E1 is carried by by National Guardsmen, and comes with great accuracy and stopping power. At some point, Lance Vance refers to it as an M4, which is not only incorrect, but also anachronistic. It holds 30 rounds, despite being modeled with a 20-round magazine. While the M16A2 was developed in the early 80s, the US Army (who occupies Fort Baxter) didn't adopt it until 1988, four years after the game's events, so the use of the XM16E1 is (relatively) accurate.

Sniper Rifles

M21

The M21 replaces the Remington 700 from previous games. This is a rather inappropriate choice, as the real M21 is semi-automatic, whereas the in-game weapon still operates in bolt-action mode.

M21 Sniper Weapon System - 7.62x51mm
In-game model.

SVD Dragunov

The SVD Dragunov is the most powerful sniper rifle in the game. It holds 7 rounds per magazine (like the SR9(T) from GTA Vice City and GTA Liberty City Stories) rather than the real 10, and has a laser magnifying scope.

Heavy Weapons

M249E1 SAW

The M249E1 SAW appears in the game; it holds 100 rounds and is very powerful, being able to destroy vehicles very quickly. Phil Cassidy is seen using one in a firing range when he is first met by Vic. The player is tasked to use one from a helicopter in the mission in "Farewell to Arms", to shoot gang members attacking Gonzalez's men. During free roam, it can only found in one place, which is the movie studio in Prawn Island (unless the player shoots all 99 red balloons of game, in which case the M249 will spawn at every safehouse owned by Vic).

Handheld GAU-19/A

As in Liberty City Stories, the portable "Minigun" is modeled after a General Dynamics GAU-19/A.

M72 LAW

The M72 LAW appears, modified with a pistol grip and reloading capabilities. Vic is required to use one during the mission "Turn on, Tune in, Bug out", to destroy several antennae being used by the DEA in their attempt to listen in on Vic and Lance. A group of thugs sent to intimidate the duo also uses one in the level "Light My Pyre" to destroy Lance's car.

Flamethrower

The fictional flamethrower seen in previous GTA games makes a final appearance in Vice City Stories.

Other

Beretta 92FS Inox

The Beretta 92FS Inox replaces the 92F in full-motion cutscenes, and is not usable during gameplay. This variant is anachronistic, since it was introduced in 1990, while the game takes place in 1984.

M7 CS Gas Grenade

Unusable M7 CS gas grenades are displayed inside various Ammu-Nation stores. They have a different texture compared to their counterpart in GTA Vice City (PS2 version) and GTA San Andreas.

M230 Chain Gun

Vice City Stories features a version of the Hughes AH-64 Apache, known in-game as the "Hunter". It has an M230 Chain Gun in a chin mount, wing mounts containing eight AGM-114 Hellfire missiles in two packs of four, as well as two non-functional Hydra 70 rocket pods. Vic steals a "Hunter" from the army base in the penultimate mission of the game, then proceeds to used it in the final mission in order to shoot up a building. After the game is completed, the helicopter becomes available at the east entrance of the Escobar International Airport.

Remington 870 (airsoft)

An artwork of Bryan Forbes shows him holding a sawed-off Remington 870, more precisely an airsoft version as evidenced by the short box magazine.

Beretta M12

Although not used in the game, a Beretta M12 is seen in an artwork of Diego Mendez.

M60

Despite having been replaced by the M249 in gameplay, the M60 is seen in one of the loading screens, being held by Phil Cassidy.
