[edit] Plot

You've been betrayed and left for dead. Now you're taking revenge, unless the city gets you first. Mob bosses need a favor, crooked cops need help and street gangs want you dead. You'll have to rob, steal and kill just to stay out of serious trouble. Anything can happen out here.

[edit] Patches

[edit] Patch 1.1

Changes:

  • Exception error after blue Rockstar load screen fixed.
  • Error loading saved games fixed.
  • Mouse sensitivity now saved with other settings (no changes made to existing settings).
  • Option for user to play audio files directly from hard disk. Copy the contents of the PLAY discs Audio directory into your installed Grand Theft Auto III Audio directory. Grand Theft Auto III still requires the presence of the PLAY disc when started. This may give better performance on some machines (though worse on others).
  • All protection checks (apart from needing PLAY disc to start) removed. Grand Theft Auto III still checks for the presence of the PLAY disc when initially started, and plays audio from the PLAY disc if not found on the hard disk (see above).

[edit] Weapons

In GTA III, there are a total of 11 weapons which can be acquired. If you have none, you'll be stuck with your fists, which of course aren't very effective for killing large amounts of armed gang members. Below are details of each of the available weapons.

Weapon Description
Fist HUD Icon Fist - Your bare fists, not very effective but they're better than nothing, obviously you always have these available.
Baseball Bat HUD Icon Baseball Bat - Your everyday sports item turned classic kneecap "adjustment" tool. Not much to it really- 'tis long, heavy, and made of wood. Just grab the narrow bit and bludgeon people with the rather blunt end. Batter up! It's available from your hideout right at the start.
Pistol HUD Icon Pistol - This is the gun all the cops use, not very good. You can get it at your hideout by collecting 10 hidden packages.
Uzi HUD Icon Uzi - This gun is probably one of the best in the game. It's light so you can run with it. It is quite fast firing. It's the only gun you can perform drive-by's with. Acquire this at your hideout by collecting 20 hidden packages.
Shotgun HUD Icon Shotgun - This gun is a powerful one. Once the Mafia are angry with you they will be hunting you down with these so watch out. This can be acquired at your hideout by collecting 40 hidden packages.
AK-47 HUD Icon AK-47 - The Kalashnikov aka. AK47 is one, if not the most popular varieties of assault rifles in the world. Originally developed for the Soviet army, it features a rugged yet simple design which makes it both cheap to produce and highly versatile on the battlefield. Its durability and affordability have also made even older, used models popular for warring gangs. For the most part, it works just like the M4 in the game, only with a smaller magazine size, and perhaps a little better accuracy due to its slightly slower rate of fire. The AK47, and the M4 above, both have an impressive range on them, which allows for locking onto targets and taking them out before they pose an immediate threat. After reaching Hitman status with either assault rifle, you'll be able to move about and strafe a bit while firing, with an extended lock-on range to boot. Get this at your hideout by collecting 70 hidden packages.
M16 HUD Icon M16 - This has an extremely fast rate of fire so you can easily kill masses of people or quickly destroy vehicles with it. It also has its own site for more accurate shooting. Acquire it at your hideout with 90 hidden packages.
Sniper Rifle HUD Icon Sniper Rifle - This is great for killing people from long distances, it has a site with zoom but it does sway a little although if you're accurate then you'll be fine. Get this by collecting 80 hidden packages.
Rocket Launcher HUD Icon Rocket Launcher - The classic Soviet RPG look-alike is a must have for any one man army out to take on an entire state full of gangs and such. Basically, it's just a big tube with a scope and a trigger to ignite the rockets which propel impact-triggered grenades. Just aim it at a target,fire, and *boom*. One shot is usually all it takes to blow up any car (or group of cars for that matter), although there are a number of vehicles which require multiple hits to destroy, such as tanks and armored vans. Obviously, you don't want to use one of these in any sort of close quarters combat. It can be acquired by collecting all 100 hidden packages.
Flame Thrower HUD Icon Flame Thrower - The basic concept behind a flame thrower is a tank filled with napalm which is sprayed through a nozzle and ignited by a pilot light on the way out. In the hands of a skilled user, this weapon can prove to be quite hazardous to all involved. While it does a lovely job of setting enemies, cars, and, well, everything on fire, one runs the risk of burning themself as well. Between panicked flaming people bumping into you, thereby sharing their pain, you've also got to look out for the fire on the ground spreading to you,if you don'T did the fire department mission till lvl 12. Especially in areas with lots of grass and such. With some luck though, such hazards can be used to your advantage; be it enemies catching other enemies on fire, or setting up a defensive wall of flame around you. Regardless of the risks involved, the flame thrower is great fun and an extremely deadly weapon to play with. This is acquired by extinguishing 20 fires on each island.
Molotov Cocktail HUD Icon Molotov Cocktail - The idea behind these things is simple enough: Take a glass bottle, fill it with something flammable (usually petrol), shove a rag in the top, light the rag on fire, and give it a toss. The primary purpose is, of course, an anti-personnel weapon, but it can also be used strategically for defense. Get these at your hideout by collecting 60 hidden packages.
Grenade HUD Icon Grenade - Long carried by infantry soldiers to aid in removal of pesky hardened positions and enemies hiding behind things, grenades are quite simple in theory. Step 1: pull pin, step 2: throw, and step 3: try not to be nearby when they explode. When used properly, grenades do a bang-up job of taking out cars (and anybody who might use them for cover) and clearing out closed in areas filled with opponents. When used improperly on the other hand, you can just as easily blow yourself up and/or any cars nearby you may be using for cover. If you're not careful, you might also end up causing a chain reaction in congested areas which ends with exploded cars all about and lots of police attention. But then, that may very well be the desired effect in some cases... Get these at your hideout by collecting 30 hidden packages.
