Weapon acquisition.

Curious if anyone has come across confirmed reports of how one gets weapons in GTA4.

Found randomly throughout the city?
Purchased through contacts?
Is AMMUNATION still in?

Oh ya and whats the intel on whether rifles can be concealed?

Finally, any reports if one can hoard a stock pile of weapons in the safe house?

thanks fellas.

You have to ring an arms dealer and arrange a meet.

Most likely need a license or something.

Throughout the course of the storyline, we'll probs end up meeting more arms dealers who deal in better quality weaponry.

honesty, I think thats what I'll do. I am speculating that I will likely play 2-3 missions then go awol for a day or two and explore the city.

But I'm really looking to get my hands on a machine pistol or an assault rifle. I am guessing that I might be able to get one by killing a rival gangster or copper.

wow theirs snitches on this board...

anyways buying weapons from a arms-dealer seems way more cool meeting up in an ally and all that, then going into the gun store and buying a piece.

If i remember correctly the weapons won't float in the air anymore. You have to bend over to pick them up.

I noticed in the latest batch of screenshots that weapons are indicated by any glowing circle or anything like that. I'm guessing it's like Freedom Fighters, in which the guns were left in the manner they were dropped.

I have to say I'm already quite impressed with the changes Rock$tar has made. So much more realism, but in the right places!
