The latest Grand Theft Auto Online update, The Contract, brings various improvements and additions to the venerable game. Such alterations include quality of life updates, fixes, and the implementation of new goodies for players. However, as with most Grand Theft Auto Online updates, fans eagerly anticipate two things above all else: new vehicles and new weapons. The Contract expansion, fortunately, includes both.
The few weapons featured in The Contract update are especially spectacular. They are unlike any weaponry introduced in previous Grand Theft Auto Online expansions, although their practicality is questionable. Regardless of efficacy, players will be yearning to get their hands on these new armaments, bolstering their armory. So, here is every weapon introduced in The Contract update and how to get them.
How To Obtain The New Weapons In The Contract Expansion
Every new weapon in The Contract expansion (except for the Heavy Rifle) requires players to own an Agency with the Armory option. There are several Agencies available for purchase on Dynasty 8 Executive. These include:
- Little Seoul ($2,010,000)
- Vespucci Canals ($2,145,000)
- Rockford Hills ($2,415,000)
- Hawick ($2,830,000)
Either at the time of buying the Agency or sometime after, players must select the Armory option for an additional cost of $720,000. Therefore, to gain access to new weapons, players will need to spend anywhere from $2,730,000 to $3,550,000. Once they do, players can purchase every weapon introduced in The Contract and modify them as they please.
“It’s, like, literally stunning.” — Agency Armory
The Stun Gun is a simple, affordable, non-lethal weapon capable of incapacitating others. It has seen use throughout Grand Theft Auto Online, yet players could never obtain it. The Contract update finally granted players the opportunity to own this largely ineffective weapon.
While it serves no practical purpose, the Stun Gun is perfect for players looking to mess around. The only customization options it possesses are a wide variety of tints. Players can acquire the Stun Gun from the Agency Armory for a reasonable price of $375,000.
“The no-holds-barred 30-round answer to that eternal question, how do I get this guy off my back?”
The Heavy Rifle is a devasting and well-balanced weapon capable of mowing through most threats. Surprisingly, this rifle was among Grand Theft Auto 5’s original weaponry before being cut. The Contract update reimplemented this impressive gun, granting players another addition to Grand Theft Auto Online’s vast armory.
The Heavy Rifle possesses the best qualities of other weapons in its class. However, it lacks the stopping power of Mk 2 variant weaponry. The Heavy Rifle boasts modifications that enhance the rifle or alter its appearance. Players can acquire the Heavy Rifle from either Ammu-Nation or the Agency Armory for a reasonable price of $450,000.
Compact EMP Launcher
“Have you ever seen a confetti cannon? The Compact EMP Launcher is just like that, but instead of colorful paper and happiness, it’s an electromagnetic pulse, short circuits, and shattered dreams.” — Ammu-Nation
The Compact EMP Launcher is particularly effective against vehicles. This strange armament is capable of temporarily disabling vehicles for 5 seconds. While this effect can be devastating under certain circumstances, the Compact EMP Launcher itself is unruly. It is slow-firing and difficult to aim, making an otherwise exceptional weapon lackluster.
The Compact EMP Launcher possesses a round modification and various tints to choose from. Players can acquire the Compact EMP Launcher from the Agency Armory for a reasonable price of $397,500.
