SA-MP Weapon statistics showcase.

Gun statistics.

The following table displays statistics regarding most guns in SA-MP. ("guns" as in weapons which are shot, not melee or other "weapon" objects.)

Some data was taken from game DAT files, some other data was gathered with in-game testing.
Please note all of this data is for maximum skill level only.

In some cases the SA-MP const might make the name seem wrong, but that's what they actually are.

Array form.


[1] These values are defined in and can be used in place of the numerical weapon IDs when scripting.

[2] Time in seconds between one shot and the next.

[3.1] Distance in SA-MP units, sometimes equated to meters. Round up ~5-10 units to account for lag if using in a script.

[4.1] C-Bug the act of abusing crouching state/animation to skip cooldowns.

[4.2] It is used on Deagle and CSG to fire shots faster. It is used on Sniper rifle to regain walking ability faster after off-scoping.

[5.1] A shotgun's maximum damage is the damage of each pellet * the amount of pellets which hit their target.

[5.2] A script made by me to calculate shotgun shot accuracy based on damage/pellets is available here.

All guns have a damage type of INSTANT_HIT.

- Damage on Explosive weapons is the max if in the middle of explosion. Decreases the further away you go.

- Range is the range of the explosion effect, not the range of the weapon itself.

- AREA_EFFECT and MELEE weapons cause their listed damage per frame. Players with higher framerate will die faster, and will also generate faster calls to OnPlayerTakeDamage.

- SA-MP Lag Compensation has no effect on any of these weapons. Only on guns.
