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.
There are no customizations for this weapon.
