baseball bat or knife,my choice baseball bat,the knife is good for silent kills but the bat is stronger.
pistol,theres also a desert eagle but the Glock in the game is better it has 17 round clip.
submachine guns,the Uzi is good for driveby's in both story and online but the MP5 is good for when your on your feet,my pick MP5
shotgun theres actually 2 a combat shotgun which is basically a semi auto shotgun and a pump shotgun.but i didn't know how to do the combat shotty.
M4 or Ak or as they call it in the guide the assualt rifle (AK) and the carbine (M4),the AK is strong but the M4 is acurate there both good i guess.
sniper rifle *yawn*
Well since i got back from brickfair i now have the brickarms bat so i can post a page with the weapons and weapon classes in Grand Theft Auto 4.Oh! and before the noobs go after me for not giving credit to brickarms-credit for the weapons go to brickarms,yeah try and get me now noobs.
Note there are 3 other weapons i didn't get to the RPG, the grenade, and the molotov cocktail.Grenade is good in the story if you use it inside,i know that sounds crazy but it works.
