Minigun In GTA 5


The Minigun is a heavy weapon in GTA V manufactured by Coil.


The Minigun is featured in the mission The Paleto Score after which it is unlocked for purchase. It is a heavy weapon, quite literally, and is very powerful, shooting at a high speed with a large number of rounds in a single magazine.

Design and Performance

(The mingun in first person perspective)


Although being called the Minigun, it is not small in size. It is a heavy weapon and is always held with two hands by the player. It is based on the M134 minigun model. There is a handle on the top to hold the gun up and assist in aiming. The trigger is on the rear handle. The front barrels of the gun rotate while firing.


(Michael De Santa holding the Minigun)


The Minigun is a very powerful weapon. It has an immensely rapid rate of fire and can take out vehicles leading to an explosion in a matter of seconds. The force of the bullets hitting the vehicle is so high that it even pushes the vehicle forward when shooting it. Unarmored targets can easily be taken out in a single shot as well. This weapon is more suitable for taking out helicopters, planes and other heavy vehicles rather than being used in gunfights, due to the limitation of not being able to take cover and automatic aiming. It shoots up to 3000 bullets per minute and the magazine capacity can be increased up to 9999 with the player’s shooting skills being at a maximum.

Locations

  1. The Minigun can be purchased from Ammu-Nation after completing the mission The Paleto Score
  2. Trevor automatically receives a minigun to use during the mission The Paleto Score. However, it does not remain in his inventory after the mission.
  3. The minigun can be picked up from a room on the top floor of the Fort Zancudo control tower. However, it is extremely risky to obtain it as entering Fort Zancudo base gives the player a wanted level which results in soldiers and Rhino tanks attacking the player. The invincibility cheat makes it easy to obtain the gun from the base.


Trivia

  1. Originally, the barrels would have two barrel clamps besides the ones at the end of these. The current version only has one thick clamp.
  2. Most pre-release materials, as well as the HUD icons, depict the original version of the Minigun.
  3. In the files of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, there is a minigun named "minigun2". This is the part of the minigun that is spinning when being fired.
