Completing Gun Challenges in GTA 5 is a must! The different attributes of your characters add a lot towards how they perform in a particular mission.
And by completing these challenges, your character will not only perform better while shooting but you will also unlock a wide range of weapons and will receive 25% off on all weapons.
Note: You will have to aim for Gold if you wish to get these discounted prices on AmmuNation stores.
GTA 5 Gun Range Challenges
The unlocking system of the weapons work in a different manner. After unlocking a particular weapon on the Gun Range, the weapon will not be available on the AmmuNation stores until you progress enough through the game to unlock them.
Finding Gun Ranges in Los Santos is quite easy. You can open up your mini-map and look for .9mm Pistol icon. One Gun Range is to the South-East of the Franklin’s home and the other one is to the North of Franklin’s home.
After approaching the Gun Range, press ‘right’ to enter and pay a fee of $14. This is the only fee you will be paying as the ammo and weapons are completely free of cost. For trying out the challenges, that is!
In order to complete a challenge, you will be required to hit the given targets with maximum accuracy. Doing this will also build up your score multiplier. However, if you miss a target, the score multiplier will get to zero and you will have to build it up again.
Note: There are some challenges which are a whole forgiving then the other ones. For instance, Assault Rifle challenge’s score multiplier doesn’t reset if you make one mistake.
Each challenge you undertake requires to hit the color-coded circles. The point and color distribution of each area is:
Black +10 Points
Blue +25 Points
Red +50 Points
Yellow +100 Points
The score multiplier has a maximum range of 3x which means that you can earn up to 300 points for each accurately hit target.
Each challenge consist of three stages and you must meet the targeted score in each of these areas. Some of the areas require you to shoot static targets and some of them will have moving ones.
As for unlocking the weapons in the game, the challenges are quite self-explanatory as to how to unlock more weapons.
Note: Heavy Gun challenges will unlock only after you have acquired Bronze medal in all other challenges.
All the gun challenges are pretty easy except Pistol challenge# 3 and Shotgun challenge# 1. At least for me! I would advise you to move along the targets during the Pistol challenge# 3 which will certainly help.
As for the Shotgun challenge# 1, you will be required to hit maximum number of targets at the same time. Once again, move along the targets until you almost align them and then shoot.
