In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, a wide array of weapons become available as the player completes more missions. There is a wide array of pistols, shotguns, and submachine guns, some of which can be purchased atAmmu-Nation. The game also features the most melee weapons in any GTA game so far, some of which can be bought at various hardware stores. Subsequently after the release of the original GTA Vice City for the PlayStation 2, Rockstar dropped the real names of the guns, probably due to trademark reasons likely being approached by Heckler & Koch, the maker of the MP5 and PSG1. Therefore some weapons on the list have two names, the first coming from the original PS2 version while the second coming from subsequent PS2 versions and the PC and Xbox versions. There are other physical differences to the guns between the original and subsequent versions, including the Ruger/Kruger is shortened and given a black skin, while the PSG1 is now standard with a mock silencer. Notice the weapon HUD is very unique and cannot be seen in any other games.
