Best Battlefield 3 Primary Weapons

What's BF3 without a stick in your hand to fight with? This list will help with the survivability on the field with primary weapons.

The Top TenXW


Best because its quite powerful and still such a low recoil. G3A3 is good too...

I guess this could be the best weapon... But I am only level 4, but I'd say one of the AK's.

What can I say about this gun, I was playing an Noshar Canal with Unlimited Ticket, first of all I unlocked this gun and in same Round I got 235 Kills because I had to unlock Cobra (RDS) this gun is just awesome.

It's high rate of fire is what keeps it from first place. Everything about this gun is excellent from it's range, to it's damage, to it's mag size. High rate of fire drains the weapons supply faster, so if you can fire control bursts, or if you're like me, use semi-auto fire at harder targets. - drakeh1


10/10 Best gun ever ign

Amazing gun, high power low recoil


Getting killed by this weapon gets annoying after awhile doesn't it? Now this this a great rifle for fast firing and damage, truly proves itself genuine over and over and over again. For attachments be sure to add a good sight and use a stabilizer if you can. - drakeh1


This was the new best after the M16A3 nerd.

Over Powered Blasting Gun of death

Much talk says this gun is the new best weapon on the block and to be honest, it is CLOSE but no cigar. Though it shares the exact same stats as the M16A3, it actually has slightly less damage which can hurt it later on in larger engagments. But don't get me wrong, its an awesome Assualt Rifle. - drakeh1

It's great for any range finding situation from short to long to medium. It's basically to me an automatic sniper rifle and it fits great with an acog on it as well. This weapon is the last gun you can unlock in CO-OP mode and it's worth all the points to use it. - drakeh1


This is the best SMG, without a doubt. Though the M5K and the PP-2000 were close behind, they still lacked in the fact that the firing rate for this weapon is best. Close quarters fighting is also a strengh for this weapon and it is an absolute beast at medium range. - drakeh1

A weapon makes it return from BF2 and I still love it. For a bolt-action rifle, it litterally has very little disadvantages and still kills professionally. Small side note to those out there, don't mistaken this for the LV sniper because it actually isn't. - drakeh1


The Contenders


From my experience with weapons on the battlefield, I must say that this stands out above all other LMG's of its class. It beats the M240 recoil wise and it has a great deal of damage to it as well. Still, recommended you still use a bipod on it to keep its stability and accuracy. Plus, add on your favorite sight. - drakeh1
