There are three types of weapons at your disposal in MTA. Acquiring them and choosing them for different circumstances is vital to surviving.
Note: Weapon damage listed was testet by shooting an unarmored level 1 player by an level 1 player in the body and in the head. Tweaks to weapon values are not clearly released by the devs, requiring players to voluntarily test and compile information in their own time and as well as they can manage. Current testing procedure is done either by shooting a vehicle and observing the damage dealt, divided by two, or by shooting an unarmored player in the head, limbs, and body.
touch fire: 1hp damageburn : 6hp damagestand in the burning block : 8hp damage
Pending update on which guns can be wielded in a player's second hand, weapon handling, and reload times.
Guns are the primary weapons in MTA! Below you will find a table with more information about each gun. The damage displayed is the maximum damage done when you are not wearing any armor. If you are not a high enough level to use a gun, it will have a higher chance to jam and force you to reload. A jammed gun requires that you rapidly click to unjam it followed by having to reload regardless of how much ammo you had left.

Gun attachments can be bought, and added to weapons through anvils, in order to increase their capabilities. For convenience, attachments are able to be added to weapons in stacks so you don't have to apply them individually. They are "Bound" items so they are destroyed upon death.

The last thing you want to hear when shooting an opponent is the click of an empty chamber. Keep yourself stocked with ammo and you'll be able to do more than just whack someone with an empty gun.

Damage values are unarmored and right at the point of the explosion. Explosion radius values are the maximum range to be effected by the explosion at all. Diminishing damage from being further from the explosion isn't factored.
Grenade Fuse Time Damage Explosion Radius Price Level Req. FlashBang 0:02 None, Blindness 0:05 6 blocks Buy: $50
Level 5 Grenade 0:05 6 6 blocks Buy: $83
Level 25 Molotov 0:02 Explosion: 3
Fire: Depends on exposure.
6 blocks Buy: $117
Molotovs produce a single block of fire where they explode. However, if they explode on a slab then there is no fire. This is also how the explosion damage was obtained without the fire and being on fire interfering with the value.
The damage value differences between melee weapons, if there are any, are so negligible that the random damage variables and criticals make a greater difference. Still, if you want to hit someone, you may as well hit them with a little style, possibly with an Irish Whiskey from a bartender ($500 Strength Potion 3:00).
