Max Payne holding a golden M4 Super 90

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.

Description[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

  • Other than Max Payne 3, two other of Rockstar's games have featured golden guns; Red Dead Redemption and Ballad of Gay Tony, a standalone expansion for Grand Theft Auto IV (which allows its protagonist to wield a special gold submachine gun).
    • Additionally, players who pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox 360 and PS3 were able to apply an exclusive gold tint to every gun in the game, alongside several others. Enhanced versions include the tints by default.
  • Once all the golden parts are collected within the game, this enables the "Unlimited Ammo" cheat in Story Mode.
