This is why you're leveling. Here's every ranked unlock in GTA Online.


GTA 5 guide: complete list of GTA Online unlocks by rank

You've slapped your nice new copy of GTA 5 into your PS4 or Xbox One. I'll try GTA Online, you thought. Someone shot you in the face. You can't kill them. You need a better gun. Want a Combat MG? You can't have one. Yet.

The list below is one of the reasons you're going to be playing GTA Online forever. It details the unlock level of every weapon, weapon upgrade, vehicle upgrade and mission in the game.

Well, sort of. The mission and weapon details are complete, as far as we're aware, but most of the vehicle upgrades aren't listed here (there are hundreds of them, and they're related to specific vehicles). Neither are the tattoos, many of which are locked until later levels. See this as a living article. We'll come back to it with the other bits of data as we go forward.

Another note. The "freemode co-op missions" aren't just given to you by phone message when you hit the correct rank. You have to find them on the map and walk onto the blue ring on the ground to activate it for the first time. You can get details of how to find them on this Wikia page.

Leave a comment if you see any glaring omissions. Be sure to bookmark our GTA 5 and GTA Online guide for tons of information and tips.
