Best Weapons on Halo: Reach


The Top TenXW

1Sniper Rifle (System 99D-S2 Anti-Materiel)

If you want to be that player in matchmaking that everybody wants to get, this is the weapon, its deadly and headshot one hit one kill

I use this sniper because it is unique. It's scope is first class, it's power as a sniper is unbeatable, it looks boss, and it's accuracy is AMAZING!

If you want to control the game, get good at sniping. Everybody I play with is terrified when I get my hands on this.

Is good out here

2Energy Sword

The energy sword has style and class and is great for killing the flood. But I do think the gravity hammer is better for killing brutes and elites and hunters. But the energy sword works good on them too.

The Energy Sword is a lot stronger than the shotgun because its instantly a one hit kill. Also it does have more range because you can strike from a distance (like commando on Modern Warfare 2). Although it wastes quicker than the shotgun.

Energy sword is great for the assassinations in halo

Destroyed people with this

3M90 CAWS Shotgun

I know I can rely on my shotgun, it can do the job. When rushing my opponents, I shoot first once my shotgun is in range and finish them off with a melee

Even if you dash with the sword the sword the shotgun can still hit you with one shot and YOU ARE DEAD

Love it get more than 30 kills with it every time

Good for close range shots

4Gravity Hammer

I think that the Gravity Hammer is the best weapon there is because its a one hit kill that's why I think this weapon is my favorite and the best

I think that the gravity hammer is the best melee weapon because it can hit or kill multiple players or aliens around the player if they are closes by about to attack them

My favorite thing about fire fight is the climatic battle at the end when you have a gravity hammer and face off against brute chieftains

This thing will destroy you without a Spartan laser

5M392 Designated Marksman Rifle

The DMR was the scapegoat of all Halo weapons. Many people criticized the weapon for replacing the Battle Rifle and SMG. Nevertheless, the DMR became a personal favorite weapon for many players, and it is one of my favorite. Efficient and gets the job done, always aim at the head. - Canuck101

The versatility of the gun is amazing, as it can quickly take enemies out at long range, and at short it can do damage. It has lots of ammo storage, and for the damage it does, I think it is a great weapon.

I love playing SWAT but only when there are DMR's and not Magnum's because the DMR is easier to handle and its easier to get headahots with this beast of a weapon.

If you have a dmr and prefer that as your standard arm, keep the MA 37 assault rifle as a side arm they good paired

6M41 Rocket Launcher

I love this weapon! If I could give myself unlimited ammo on campaign, invincibility, and give myself weapons, I would get this and the shotgun. BEAST MODE!

I love this weapon as well I hope it replaces RPG 7. They should call it the double barrel bazooka

Halo is best played bottomless clip. This weapon becomes the ultimate exterminator. If you want to get the UNFRIGGENBELEIVABLE medal, this the weapon.

whats more fun the impaling your enemies with 20 needles and watching them go boom

Amazing gun that follows players and causes an explosion who couldn't love it at close-mid range I choose this over anything

I destroy enemies with this baby. It's marvelous. Just uh couple rounds to a grunt and BOOM.

I play multiplayer and this thing plows like hell

10Focus Rifle

Very fun weapon, which ironically is better in close range than in long range.

If your playing halo you can just put it on bottomless clip and you have an infinite laser

Really fun to use, and is hilarious when you actually get a kill

You can see this gun beam from a mile away

The Contenders

11MA37 ICWS Assault Rifle

Where's the love for this one? It's quite versatile at close range as well as far range with short bursts. Personally, this gun is the one I will always choose over anything.

The dmr is good for me at close range as well as long range.

Where's the love? This gun is very versatile and effective. The dmr is good, but at close range, you get rekt.

12Spartan Laser

Anything one shot yes not a good ammunition store but I mean come on

Why is this so low? It can blow anything with 1 shot

Best weapon for vehicles by far

13Needle Rifle

Really good weapon this should be in the top 10 although its tought to aim after a couple of shots its really strong and also has a super combine explosion like the needler. If you thought a needler was over powered try one with a 2x scope.

18Target Locator

Should be 3rd or 4th. I mean, it blows things up, it has more ammo than a rocket launcher/grenade launcher, and it makes a much bigger explosion for much more damage! Fun, right?

Best weapon to be newly introduced, and it brings you power over a WHOLE UNSC FRIGATE! Ultimate power over phantoms, Slaughters banshees and DESOLATES WRAITHS. And yes, once you choose a red-cursored enemy, it homes onto it, and destroys absolutely ANYTHING.

19Mark 2488 Magnetic Accelerator Cannon (Onager)

It destroys that Cruiser just by hitting it in the gun. It's like a smaller version of a MAC. And, finally, it's the closest you get to a MAC. Oh yeah, and just one memorable quote comes from it- I need a weapon.

It was fun but I think it word be better classified as a vehicle than a weapon

I wish there were a portable assault rifle version with unlimited ammo. You could bring it through the whole game. On the first level, you would get it and carry it as a third weapon. One shotkill and you could get on the Savhanna and just pow. Jorge lives, you don't die, and you are OP. And don't hate me for this comment.

20Plasma Turret

Dude I am sure this should be number 1 because I used it to kill 2 people at once.
