- Male and Female versions of Playa and NPCs use different stances.
- Male NPCs holding no weapons will stand up straight and have a casual walking style. Unless they hold a handgun sized firearm and stand still, they will always hold firearms with both hands and only hipfire weapons that intentionally fire from the hip only.
- Female NPCs holding no weapons (or the RPG) will not stand up as straight as a Male NPC and sways slightly when walking. Unlike Male NPCs, Female NPCs will not always aim down the sights of their weapons, such as the Heavy SMG, Automatic Rifle, or Pump-Action Shotgun, but this does not reduce the accuracy of their weapons. These weapons are also held with the barrel facing up when standing still or walking, and they do not hold the vertical grip until they start running. The only weapons they aim down the sight is the handgun-size firearms and the RPG.
- Male versions of Playa will use the same stances as Male NPCs, but will regularly hold two-handed weapons by their side when standing still, unless the weapon is too large/heavy (such as the Abduction Gun or the Sniper Rifle), and handgun size firearms are always held with one hand until they aim down the gun's sight.
- Female versions of Playa use a mix of animations from the Male and Female stances, with some modified. Female Characters will use the sights if present on the gun, hold the lighter, two-handed weapons by the pistol grip when standing still (but pointed more vertical and resting on their shoulder) hold heavy, two-handed weapons like a Male Character if standing still, with lighter, two-handed weapons being held by the pistol grip and vertical grip when walking.
- Playa and NPCs (regardless of gender) will hold weapons that are fired from the hip (such as the Semi-Auto Shotgun and Thumpgun) lower than other two-handed weapons and always hold the weapon with both hands.
- Cyrus Temple uses a unique unarmed and armed stance. When unarmed, he stands stationary like a normal male NPC, but he has his right arm bent slightly as if he's holding his hip. With two-handed weapons (like his default Automatic Rifle), Cyrus has the barrel of his gun pointed to the side more rather than forward like other NPCs, holding the gun much closer to his chest overall.
- When NPCs or Playa is inside a vehicle that allows drive-bys, the character will always aim down the sights of the weapon, even if it has no sights and is normally fired from the hip.
