When you go to the 'Manage Gangsters" screen, you can see a button that says "equip". This lets you equip weapons indeed, so if you started out with a knife, you'll be able to bring a gun with you instead.

However, I have only started playing about 2 hours ago, and I haven't found a weapon yet that I could equip.

Buying the firearms from someone only gives you firearms to do drive-by's or sell them to others. I couldn't use those to equip (yet?).

But yeah, in short it should be possible...as to how, I dunno yet...

Check the crime lords and the deputies houses. They are the ones that have the stars or the fedora hats above them:)

You might have to grease their palms a little to get on their good side, but then check their weapons tab! Send a henchie to go buy that weapon, and THEN go into your equip screen to arm your folks accordingly!

Tip:good idea to do this BEFORE you complete a map, you can't go back to them once you leave the map, and you might miss some unique/signature weapons if you leave early.

Have fun and good luck!

Thanks a lot! I didn't realize I could buy weapons from the deputy/crime lords. I kind of feel like the game did not do a good job explaining that.

I ended up restarting my game because my team got their butts handed to them on the 3rd mission.
