Golden Guns is a feature in Max Payne 3. Each gun needs three pieces, which are scattered across each level of the story. When all three parts of a specific gun are collected, that gun becomes golden whenever picked up and can also be golden within multiplayer via weapon customization options.


Golden Guns turn ALL your weapons of that type golden, thus increasing damage of any gun by 10% or increasing the amount of ammunition in the magazine. The effect depends on the weapon.

Behind the scenes

  • Other than Max payne 3,two other games have featured golden guns,one is the rockstar games' Red Dead Redemption and the other is Deadline games' Total Overdose.
  • However,in Total Overdose,the golden gun is only used in special loco moves and not collected in pieces.It can only be got after completing missions.
  • Once all the golden parts are collected within the game, this enables the "Unlimited Ammo" cheat in the story mode.
