I figured out THE reason to work on the shooting skill

#1 Posted by GreggD (4515 posts) -

I started a new game, as I often do for GTA games, and I noticed a tooltip in the corner saying that not only does training your firearms skill increase your accuracy, but as it goes up, you gain the ability to carry more ammunition. I can definitely tell the difference, as I ended GTAV's story the first time with each character being able to carry over 1,000 ammo for each weapon, at least. Starting off fresh in Online or story made me realize that you can only carry a couple hundred bullets/shells for your guns until you train the skill. Anyway, just thought you guys should know this, because it seems pretty important.

Man fuck Rockstar and their terrible tooltips. Do they seriously expect people to win a race, listen to Lamarr AND notice a tiny tool tip in the corner at the same time?

Just do more mission's and you'll do much much better at shooting.

that's what i did.

PSN Eriko1989 represent! :P

Oh, I absolutely know how to upgrade the shooting stat, but thank you for the tip. :)

This thread was intended for all those people who use auto-aim and claim that the shooting stat is meaningless if you go that route.
