Weapons in Grand Theft Auto 2 consist of a mixture of existing equipment brought over from Grand Theft Auto 1 and additional weaponry that range from the realistic to the outlandish, in line with its futuristic settings. The weapons offered include firearms carried by the player, in addition to vehicle-mounted weaponry.
Weapons in GTA 2 may be picked up in a wider variety of methods; in addition to conventional weapon pickups throughout the city, the player may acquire weapons by crushing vehicles or from deceased gang members and law enforcers.
