Grand Theft Auto V (also known as GTA5 or GTAV) is the fifth installment of the Grand Theft Auto series being developed by Rockstar North, and published by Rockstar Games. The game was announced October 25, 2011 with its trailer debuting on November 2. The game was released on September 17th, 2013.
The following weapons can be seen in the video game Grand Theft Auto V:
Advanced Taser M26
An Advanced Taser M26 is available as the "Stun Gun". It has unlimited ammunition, and fires a shot every 3 seconds, which is the time it takes for the power meter to be recharged from 0 to 100.
The fully-automatic "AP Pistol" bears a resemblance to the Colt SCAMP. It holds 18 rounds in its magazine (36 with the "Extended Clip" attachment). During the rappelling part in "Three's Company", Michael erroneously uses it in 3-round burst mode.
What appears to be a combination of the Heckler & Koch P2000 and the Beretta Px4 Storm is available as the "Combat Pistol". It holds 12 rounds in its magazine (16 with the "Extended Clip" attachment).
A Desert Eagle is available as the "Pistol .50" as a special edition bonus weapon. It holds 9 bullets in the magazine, which should make it a .357 Magnum (.50AE Desert Eagles hold 7 rounds). It incorrectly has an optional extended magazine of 12 rounds. Furthermore, the weapon model lacks the long beaver-tail of an actual Desert Eagle and has a trigger guard that bears more resemblance to the PT92.
Entreprise Arms Wide Body 1911
The Entreprise Arms Wide Body 1911, released with the "Business Update" DLC, appears as the "Heavy Pistol". It has a miniature red dot sight on the slide, but it doesn't add any aiming bonuses for the player due to being modeled on the weapon rather than an accessory that can be attached and removed. Comes with an erroneous 18 round magazine and can be upgraded with a ridiculous 36 round extended magazine, as well as the usual pistol mods (suppressor and weapon light).
FN Model 1922
What appears to be a FN Model 1922 is available as the "Vintage Pistol" with the "I'm Not a Hipster" DLC. It holds 7 rounds (14 with the "Extended Clip" attachment), and can also be fitted with a suppressor.
The "SNS Pistol" is available with the "Beach Bum Pack DLC" and seems to be a Colt Junior with some design elements also similar to the AMT Backup. It holds 6 rounds in its magazine (12 with the "Extended Clip" attachment).
The "Pistol" is a Taurus PT92AF. It holds 12 rounds in its magazine (16 with the "Extended Clip" attachment), while its real counterpart holds 17 (though the 12-round magazine would be correct for the compact variant, the PT92C). In-game it is incorrectly referred to as being .45 caliber instead of 9x19mm. However, in the mission "Complications", Michael correctly refers it to a 9mm. In GTA Online, players are automatically given one of these pistols at the start of every session.
The "Assault Shotgun" is largely based on the UTAS UTS-15 with the addition of a box magazine and some other modifications such as a longer stock and relocating the barrel to the position the magazine tubes normally occupy. The original UTS-15 has a manual pump-action; however the "Assault Shotgun" is depicted as fully-automatic. Note that the "Assault Shotgun" behaves identically to an actual AA-12, notably due to the fully-automatic fire and the availability of 8-round box and 32-round drum magazines.
The Kel-Tec KSG is a bonus weapon available in the Special Edition of the game as the "Bullpup Shotgun". It comes with a 14-shell capacity, and like all games that feature the KSG, its 2 magazine tubes are depicted, mechanically, as a single long tube. Like the other pump-action shotguns, it is reloaded with just one shell.
Mossberg 590 Compact Cruiser
The "Pump Shotgun" in the game resembles a Mossberg 590 Compact Cruiser with a heat shield and a Magpul CTR stock; it comes with an 8-shell magazine capacity. The reloading animation depicts only one shell being inserted, regardless the number of shells needed. It is the standard shotgun of the LSPD and the LS County Sheriff's Department.
Serbu Super Shorty
The "Sawed-Off Shotgun" in the game resembles a Mossberg based Serbu Super Shorty (unlike in the previous GTA games, where it appeared as a double-barreled shotgun), but is slightly longer and features a traditional style pump. It comes with an 8-shell capacity (while a shotgun this size would only be able to hold somewhere between 2 and 4), and like with the larger Mossberg the reloading animation shows only one shell being inserted. It is uniquely capable of being used on motorcycles, buses and boats as a driveby weapon. In GTAV's online component, this weapon replaces the "Assault SMG" as the free weapon for Rockstar Social Club members, with the Assault SMG being a rank-based unlockable for all players.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
The Heckler & Koch MP5A3 appears as the "SMG". It holds 30 rounds in a 15-round magazine, and 60 in the 30-rounder.
The Mini Uzi is available as the "Micro SMG", and it can be fitted with a 16 or 30 round magazine. The beta version had an incorrectly slanted magazine, but this has been corrected in the final game. When the Scope attachment is added, the character unfolds the stock and properly shoulders the weapon, otherwise, the stock is folded and the weapon is fired from the hip.
This gun is available with the Valentine's Day Massacre Special DLC as the "Gusenberg Sweeper". It seems to be a Thompson M1928A1 with a drum magazine that incorrectly holds 30 rounds. The extended clip attachment ups the ammo count to the correct 50 rounds. It shares an ammo pool with the belt-fed machine guns instead of the sub-machine guns.
Rifles & Muskets
An Antique Musket is added with the "Independence Day" DLC. This Musket barely resemble a Land Pattern Musket and is fitted with a pistol grip instead of the rifle grip. Like most weapons of the era, it has a very low rate of fire, taking around 7 seconds to prepare a new round for firing.
This fictional assault rifle (classified in-game as an SMG) is a bonus unlock for players who join the Rockstar Social Club; it bears a resemblance to several real guns, particularly the Magpul PDR-C. It can be fitted with a 30 or 60 round magazine. In the online component of the game, this weapon is a rank-based unlock for all players, with the Serbu Shorty replacing it as the free weapon for Social Club members.
Custom AR-15 Carbine
The "Carbine Rifle" is a custom AR-15 carbine consisting of an ACE skeleton stock incorrectly portrayed as collapsible, Northtech Billet lower receiver with an ergonomic pistol grip, VLTOR upper receiver, a handguard resembling the Daniel Defense MFR 9.0, and a 10.5" barrel with an AAC Blackout flash hider. Its sights are a "simplified" A2 type fixed rear sight and a Troy folding front battle sight. It can be fitted with an ELCAN SpecterDR scope, flashlight, 30 or 60 round magazine, a Magpul AFG2 foregrip, and a sound suppressor.
Heckler & Koch G36C
The Heckler & Koch G36C, called the "Special Carbine" in-game, is part of the Business Update DLC. It erroneously has a 6 vent-holes on the short C handguard, and utilizes straight metal magazines similar to the Galil 7.62 ARM. It also has a custom charging handle that juts out on both sides of the weapon, rather than a flush charging handle.
IMI Compact Tavor CTAR-21
The "Advanced Rifle" appears to be a IMI Compact Tavor CTAR-21 with a raised scope mount and different handguard. The handguard in-game is similar to the MTAR-21 variant, though the weapon used in-game isn't this version. A screenshot previously released by Game Informer showed a more correctly modeled CTAR-21 with a green finish. It can be fitted with a red dot sight, flashlight, suppressor, and a 30 or 60 round magazine.
Norinco Type 56-2
The "Assault Rifle" is a Norinco Type 56-2 with an aftermarket TAPCO Intrafuse handguard and ergonomic pistol grip. It can be fitted with a red dot sight (which resembles an Aimpoint Micro T1), Magpul AFG2, flashlight, suppressor (based on the PBS-1 suppressor of the AKS-74U), and a 30 or 60 round magazine.
The QBZ-95-1, referred to as "Bullpup Rifle" in-game, is added with the "High Life Update" as a part of the "GTA online Spring Update". In-game it is said to be a Chinese import. Its front sight is recycled from the GTA IV Carbine Rifle's and uses a magazine similar to the Type 56's.
FN Mk 46 Mod 0
The "Combat MG" featured in the game is a FN Mk 46 Mod 0 with the buttstock of an M60. It can accept all attachments except the flashlight and suppressor. It can be fitted with a 100 or 200 round belt. By default the weapon is fired from the hip, but when the Scope attachment is added the character will actually shoulder the weapon and fire it like an assault rifle.
GE M134 Minigun
A handheld GE M134 Minigun is available for the heavy weapon slot; the weapon is shown with no power supply or ammo feed, and loads every round the player has at once (a maximum capacity of 9999 rounds). The Buzzard helicopter also mounts a pair of M134 Miniguns on the stub wings. The M134 is also an available weapon in Righteous Slaughter 7.
The PKM with synthetic furniture and an RIS handguard appears as the "MG". It has a strange 54-round capacity by default, but the "Extended Clip" attachment gives the correct capacity of 100 rounds.
What appears to be a homemade Panzerschreck is added as the "Fireworks Launcher" with the "Independence Day" DLC. It is fitted with a firework-loaded rocket instead of the standard anti-tank shell, and is also painted with the American Flag.
Milkor Mark 14 MGL
A Milkor Mark 14 MGL is included in the game. It has an unrealistic capacity of 10 grenades instead of 6.
An RPG-7 is available.
Accuracy International AW-F
An Accuracy International AW-F is the standard sniper rifle in the game, with a 10-round magazine. Trevor receives a free one with a suppressor and more powerful scope during the two random encounters with Cletus.
A Barrett M107 is available as the "Heavy Sniper", and it incorrectly holds 6 rounds per magazine instead of 10. When aiming down the scope, probably due to an oversight, the sound of a bolt operation can be heard after each shot, despite the weapon being semi-automatic; however, it isn't heard when firing without aiming. The M107 is also the weapon used from an electronic turret in the back of a van to shoot down Javier Madrazo's commercial jet in the mission Caida Libre.
M18 Smoke Grenade
The M18 smoke grenade appears as the "Tear Gas" grenade.
M61 Hand Grenade
The M61 hand grenade appears as the "Grenade".
The "P-996 Lazer" fighter jet, a cross between the F-35, F/A-18 and F-16, is equipped with a pair of M61 Vulcan cannons, with the one installation an F-16 should have mirrored on both sides of the fuselage.
While playing Righteous Slaughter 7, an in-game FPS video game, in his bedroom, Jimmy's game character can be seen using a stainless steel Makarov PM in tandem with a syringe similar to the USP45/tactical knife combo in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
Unknown Glock Gen 3 Compact
A 3rd Generation Glock compact pistol is seen in the holster of the armored truck guards, however they cannot be used and the guards will still attack the player using the normal Pistol. It is impossible to tell which specific model of Glock it is, other than that it is a 3rd generation compact pistol. The model of the guard is re-used from GTA IV.
Robinson Armament XCR
When playing Righteous Slaughter 7 in his bedroom, Jimmy's game character can be seen using a Robinson Armament XCR in the CQB configuration. This weapon is not available in the game for player use.
The "Rhino," a fictional tank closely based on the German Leopard 2A4, mounts an unusable Browning M2 on the commander's hatch.
For no obvious reason, a Soviet T-34-85 can be found in a junkyard in Los Santos. Even more curiously, it retains its hull-mounted Degtyaryov DT machine gun; these are usually not shown even on tanks that are supposed to be real, since videogame tanks are often based on museum pieces with empty hull gun mounts.
M230 Chain Gun
Hunter attack helicopters (based on the AH-64 Apache) equipped with the M230 Chain Gun can be seen in the trailer for the in-game movie The Simian, which can be seen when going to a movie theater while hanging out with a friend. The Hunter does not yet appear in the game proper.
