Some blood and gore during gun fights. There are bloody bullet holes as people are shot, as well as others who are bloody after being shot.

A man is hit in the head by a bus on screen, nothing bloody.

A man is impaled with a steel rod and blood squirts out, yet he lives.

A man is shot with a machine gun underwater and lots of blood spills out and floats in the water. Riggs and Murtaugh are rather bloody by the end of the movie and after all of the fighting.

The most violent of the franchise by far.

One of the characters has a long term smoking addiction. It is commented on a few times, mostly comically.
