Weapons play a significant role in Grand Theft Auto: King of The Hill, as they're used to defeat enemies.

King of The Hill is the first game in the series to include advanced stealth mechanics, inspired by Manhunt. In several occasions during the story, Miklos gets in "the stealth mode", which disallows him to use firearms and must use melee weapons to stealthily execute all enemies guarding the specific area in order to proceed.


Melee weapons are classified in 3 slots, depending on their stealth execution way.

Normal (Non-lethal)

Instead of killing the victim, these weapons merely knock them unconscious for some time.

  • Fist: Basic melee weapon and the first weapon in every GTA game.
  • Baseball Bat: Made of aluminium. This baby is a very popular choice for all kinds of outlaws.

Careful (Slow, but silent)

Executing the victim with these weapons goes slowly, but completely silently, preventing nearby enemies hearing you taking someone out.

  • Knife: A stab in the back is a common problem in the criminal underworlds, worldwide.
  • Plastic bag: Slow and nasty... sheesh. Can only be used in stealth mode.
  • Hammer: Everytime is hammer time.
  • Chain: Piece of chain. Used to strangle stuff.

Quick (Quick, but loud)

Executing the victim with these weapons goes fast, but causes a loud noise or makes the victim scream in pain, alerting nearby enemies.

  • Meat Cleaver: Nice and quick way to sever the head from the carcass.
  • Screwdriver: Commonly used to screw with people.
  • Golf Club: Hole in one, and the hole is in the head of an enemy.
  • Buzzsaw: Yaiks.


  • Glock 22: Basic pistol. Nothing mind-blowingly special.
  • Vintage Pistol: A hybrid of FN model 1910 and Colt M1902. Let's call it FNolt M1908.
  • AP Pistol: Full automatic pistol. In english: a machine gun in a pistol form.


  • Sawn-off Shotgun: Two hammers, two triggers.
  • Pump Action Shotgun: Pumped up action.
  • Assault Shotgun: Remember to say "I call shotgun" whenever using this in a gunfight.

Sub-Machine Guns

  • Micro-SMG: The very definition of a Sub-Machine Gun. See? Sub Machine Gun -> S M G.
  • MP5: All I need to say about this one is that it shoots bullets when the trigger is pulled.
  • TEC 9: Welcome back to GTA, TEC 9. We've missed you since Liberty City Stories.
  • MG: Something something something pretty good gun.

Assault Rifles

  • Sticky Bomb: Stick up with these things.
