Tear Gas in GTA 5


Tear gas is a throwable weapon in GTA 5 manufactured by Hawk & Little. It is available for purchase at Ammu-Nation for $150 per can. Tear gas in GTA V can be lethal if anyone is exposed to it for a long time, however, it is not the same in real life.

Tear gas in GTA V is lethal if exposed to for a long while, unlike its real life version which does not work in the exact same way. When thrown at pedestrians, they will just run away. If the player stands in the smoke of the Tear gas, they will die in around 10-15 secs. Tear Gas is used by NOOSE agents in some situations when the player receives a 4-star or 5-star wanted level. Tear Gas makes the target cough and collapse after a long duration. It is considered lethal but is not the ideal way to kill a target. It can be used to get targets out of cover or to buy time while in a gunfight.

  2. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, casino security guards and enemy gang members during a gang war are immune to tear gas.
  3. In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, pedestrians will not scream in terror and run away if the player uses the tear gas.
