Lists of Weapons


Unlike in Vice City and San Andreas, where each weapon has a separate mesh and texture, GTA3's weapons are stored in a single DFF and TXD file, namely weapons.dff and generic.txd; only the selected object from the model hierarchy, e.g. pistol or Uzi is visible when the player chooses a weapon. Most of the information on the weapons are located in the weapon.dat file.

Vice City

Vice City is the first GTA that lets you replace a weapon of the same type. Most of the information on the weapons are located in the weapon.dat file. Information on melee combat is located in the melee.dat file. The textures and models of the weapons are located in the gta3.img file. The HUD icon of the first is located in the hud.txd file.

San Andreas

San Andreas is the first GTA that lets you dual wield weapons. Information on weapons, melee combat, textures, and models are located in the same files as in Vice City.
