Realistic effects are back and better than ever!

The main purpose of Weapon FX is to enhance GTA 5's gun effects and handling. All guns have been changed. Effects have been made to be as realistic as possible within the limitations of GTA V.

Optional Files:
  • Fine Tuned Felony & Response compatibility
  • Car Penetration 2.0
  • Pickups Lite

    New Variations:
  • Weapon FX with Tracers
  • Weapon FX Effects Only
  • Weapon FX for AR Sound 2
  • Weapon FX No Reticle
  • Weapon FX No Reticle with Tracers

    Future Plans:
  • Vehicle weapon overhaul
  • Uninstall packages for everything
  • More optional files (please give suggestions)

    Please post any suggestions or complaints on the forum page or in the comments. I'm looking for people that can make good videos or take nice screenshots. If you're interested please message me on the forums.

  • MvcGyver for helping out with the earlier versions
  • The_XXI for the FTFR weapon metadata files
  • Derrysan360 for .gfx files used to disable hitmarkers
