Tommy Vercetti’s Guide to the Guns of Vice City
 Email me at Wit3@aol.com if you need help locating a weapon, or have questions.

This guide is broken down into each of the ten slots that carry weapons.  The 
weapons are rated on the following things:

Deadliness: How many shots it takes to kill a target that is on foot.  This does not 
include headshots, as a headshot will kill in one shot.

Accuracy: How many bullets hit while firing during targeting or first-person-view.  
Keep in mind that Uzi’s get less accurate the longer the fire button is held, so let 
up every once in a while.

Reload Speed: How long it takes to reload under normal conditions.  After you get 45 
points at the shooting range at the Ammu-Nation in Downtown, you earn Fast Reload, 
which allows you to fire without the reload sequence.

Firing Speed: How fast the bullets fire out of your gun gun.  Pretty simple.
