Griefers have always been a part of any online multiplayer game, and GTA Online is not an exception. They would randomly attack you and either try to kill or steal your money, which further hinders your progress. While griefers are definitely annoying, you can consider them a part of the challenge that you need to surpass.

Getting these 5 weapons would give you a better chance of dealing with them.

1. Heavy Sniper Mk II

The Heavy Sniper Mk II is the upgraded version of the Heavy Sniper, and one of the best guns in the game. While it has the same rate of fire and multiplier against other players (x1.39), the MK II has better damage and can instantly kill a player with special ammo.

This weapon is very effective against vehicles and aircraft. Being an advanced gun, the Heavy Sniper MK II is very moddable. Players can equip it with Thermal scope, Suppressor and Long-range barrels to deal with various situations in combat. Furthermore, it can use three different types of ammunition that inflict special effects.

2. Sticky Bombs

Sticky Bombs can be used as a cheaper replacement for the Car bomb in GTA Online. The player just needs to open a car door (preferably to the side other players do not use to enter the vehicle) and stick the bomb to the inside of the door, so when the door closes, the bomb is inside the vehicle.

Players can also stick a number of bombs outside of a blast-resistant vehicle and ram it into others so that they blow up at the same time, dealing crazy damage.

3. Compact Grenade Launcher

This is the most damaging small gun in the game - it has all the power of a Grenade Launcher inside the frame of a pistol. The Compact Grenade Launcher can even be used in drive-bys and motorcycles.

Players who are practiced this weapon can blow up their targets while moving at an extremely high speed. However, players needs to be careful, as getting too close to the blast radius can destroy their own vehicle and kill them in the process.

4. RPG

For your heavy weapons, first, you would want the classic RPG. It is a great weapon against vehicles and campers hiding behind walls or on top of buildings.

Anything that you would need the homing launcher for can be done better with the Heavy Sniper MK2.

The benefit of choosing the RPG over the homing launcher is its higher amount of rockets, 20 compared to 10. It's also better at lining up a precise shot where you aim it rather than locking onto any passing vehicles.

5. Up-n-Atomizer

The Up-n-Atomizer is a small handheld futuristic raygun, sporting a blue finish with a yellow coil as the barrel. When a person or vehicle is hit directly with a shot, it will send them flying into the air, dealing a bit of damage. Each shot has a bit of AoE to it so even a near miss can still trigger the launching effect.

Firing the Up-n-Atomizer can also unstuck vehicles if players somehow render them unable to move.
