The Top Ten

the famas is my favorite weapon even though I suck and sometimes I own like earlier I went 200 and 55 playing headquarters
This is a great gun give it to a starter and they will do great it should be #1 its great with red camo and a red dot site use it!
Famas is a very good gun its great for spraying and hardly has recoil it also has great iron sight and its really awesome with red dot reflex dual mag suppressor and those are recommended attachments try it
[Newest]This weapon is fantastic, I love it

Well commando should be first I don't know why the ak74u is first it sucks anyway the commando is good at long range and medium and attachment red dot sight no freaken surpressor or acog with scanvenger pro and sleight of hand pro and second chance pro.
I just play 100x better with this gun it has no recoil at all! and just does what you want
Best gun no bounce super powerful no wonder it gets unlocked at level 44
[Newest]Not too over powered, great reload speed, lots of ammo. THE PERFECT GUN!

Great gun easy to get kills and is a overall winner. Plus you don't have to be a high level to unlock it and then buy it. My favourite attachment is suppressor so with suppressor it 10 out of 10. Thank you treyarc for this amazing gun!

The Galil, is best suited for those that like the mid to long range fight. Coupled with a suppressor and a reflex sight you can effectivly hit targets across the map. It's fire rate at mid to close range keeps rushers at bay without any problems. I constantly go >20-0 with this weapon but, I tend to play very methodical and get a bit campy.
The galil is the real deal, it keeps all the noobs on their heels. It is totally the best gun there is, but without a silencer, it is really strange, so use suppressor.
[Newest]Finally, Galil is the best weapon!

4AK 74U
Its the best gun! Best with grip or rapid fire or suppressor or dual mag
This gun is so good. I hated this gun in the beginning, but after that I cried. I was first and I had 32 kills with this gun. Fantastic
Only been playing black ops for a few days and read a few reviews on the best gun. Just unlocked the ak74u and it seems it s unstoppable, I play it with suppressor and longer magazines and works well. (ghost). But as I'm only on level 18 I'm yet to unlock a lot of other weapons. But can't go wrong with this choice.
[Newest]How is this not number 1 it is fantastic.

5AK 47
great! gotta know how to use it but I guess that the same thing with every gun in black ops
I love this gun because it is so powerful. All it needs is extended mags and maybe a silencer, it takes a while to get used to but once you get the hang of it is a beast. Best AK47 on any Call of Duty, don't like it on MW3 because there's too much recoil and looks too big. Its not bad on Call of Duty 4 though.
This gun is just plain amazing. If you know how to use it it can be very good for long range, mid rand, and close range. I go with silencer on this gun and secondary c7z5 with fully auto. Ghost (or hardline if you prefer it, ) sleight of hand and hacker. Can't go wrong.
[Newest]With silencer tis awesome!

MILF! 2nd highest damage per second as proven in Call of Duty Wiki (Highest being the M60)Little recoil mixed with its awesome fire rate and high damage makes it the best gun there. Excellent a firing in burst for long range and shred 'em to pieces with a dropshot at close range! Combine with Sleight of hand pro and say hello to a 2.18 k/d ratio like mine!
I love the AUG's fast fire rate, and great range. Not the best gun for rushing, but great at medium to long range. The AUG is by far my gun of choice.
just the feeling to shoot with a AUG without a suppressor is great. Its a good looking weapon. It is just awesome. try it and feel it
[Newest]This is the best many not for you guys but for zombies it's the best weapon you can get in the mystery box but you can't get it so easily don't just be like let's go take aug come on come on yay it's very rare

7Stoner 63
Despite the slow movement speed and reload of this weapon, I believe the stoner63 is probably the best weapon in the game for a passive player or someone who is not rushing all game long. The high fire rate and damage gives this weapon a very quick kill at all ranges and I would recommend the red dot sight for pinpoint accuracy as I personally don't like the iron sights.
BEST gun. You can look at all of the stats out of all of the guns and you will find that this one is the best. Although it might not be the best at close range, it destroys at mid range, and if you put the thermal scope on it, it turns into a fully automatic sniper rifle. USE THIS GUN!
The stoner only is a bit heavy but that's fixed with lightweight. Its advantage is that its damage over long distances is the same as its damage at close.
I'm not sure if the iron sight is good enough.
[Newest]It is a grate gun if you can you should get it

Slow reload, but why would you ever have to reload with 100 shots! Just an all around great gun! Just. 3 shots and your target is dead. Once unlocked use this. If you need to get SOH, but it is still great without it
If you use sleight of hand you can reload faster and besides that this gun is really epic it has 100 bullets per mag and has grat firepower and accuracy I got like 39 kills with this on multiplayer
The m60 is a great gun. Screw sleight of hand. The capacity is very large at 100 bullets. The gun is also the strongest automatic weapon killing in just 2 shots within medium range. Try using flak jacket with warlord and tactical mask. You can make your enemies cry.

This gun has great range and damage. There's no need to waste your money on anything else. Plus with the hardened perk and grenade launcher you'll be force of nature.
M16 is the best gun the story about m16: m16 is a 50 years gun(it means golden jubilee) and it is originally use in the marines in the Vietnam war both sides were using m16 well.. Vietcong were using ak47 (which is second place) and even in the Iraqi and afghan war the us army were using m16 were ever you go you will see m16 and now this gun is 75 years in business


Just got dogs its amazing just add a red dot or grenade launcher with hardline and your good to go
[Newest]Why don't you love it

This was first my favorite gun, but after I got the AK74U this baby only got on second place. It is still one of my favorite smg's. Good firing rate, good damage and just an overall good performance.


Put Rapid Fire on this bad boy and spray! No Steady Aim needed! Just had a 200-19 Domination game using this gun!
Great little weapon, I put a suppressor and red dot on this, definitely my favorite smg. I only use this and the commando.

The Contenders

I think it's the best because it's powerful and can get the scope that the snipers have (sorry I don't know the name of the scope) you just have to aim the head and his dead
Amazing on long range and has smg hipfire with hardened pro hardly any flinch so this gun is amazing.
It is deadly with low power scope kills instantly
[Newest]3 round burst makes it very accurate and it is very powerful

Beast gun, very accurate, low recoil, and good clip size. Must pair with rapid fire. Slight of hand or steady aim is a must, depending on your play style. Iron sight is the only downfall
The only downside of the MPL is that is has disgusting iron sights. If it is paired with rapid fire, it's hip fire can be deadlier than the AK74u's one. It is also good in ADS even with it's bad irons. It also has a healthy 32 bullet magazine, so it naturally fits Rapid Fire. Overall, this along with the PM63 are my favourite guns.
By far the best smg in the game. Low recoil, good accuracy, high rate of fire and decent range. You don need any other smg besides this.
[Newest]Stats were increased in late 2014 making it the best weapon...

Are you people kidding me? T-H-U-N-D-E-R G-U-N is #33 out of 34, wow I bet you if this was in multiplayer it would have been EPIC.
Well if its a one shot kill on anything and easy for multikills then all you need is a silencer and you are ready to go its like gods sneeze its so powerful
One of the best guns ever made. The Thundergun will get you multiple kills per disc!
[Newest]Thunder gun is good to use to kill all lot of zombies

14Ray Gun
The raygun... Takes me back in world at war -deep sigh- best weapon till round 24... The upgraded takes 2 shots in round 24! I hate this gun! Jk jk it just have hard aiming ability and reloading is too slow plus 1 shot takes 5.2 MICRO! Seconds NOT SECONDS! I must say this is a premium weapon the best part is it's good weapon for second in hand if you know what I mean... Although I vote m16 better!
This gun is one shot kill. It can shoot from long range and has a lot of ammo. The best part though is that if you need reviving in zombies it counts as an pistol so you get to keep using it.
Awesome just wish in multiplayer

My first quad was with this, now even though I don't play Black Ops I, I still love this gun.
This with the acog. Lightweight, Sleight of hand, Marathon.
This gun is boss! Even though it is bolt action it is still awesome!

Dual Python is like a shotgun up close, extremely strong but poor accuracy and range which is exactly like a shotgun. If you feel like there should be a secondary shotgun pick dual python.
Put on a acog and on hardcore you're a sniper.

When pack a punched it draws the zombies away from you and to the explosive tip
Add camo and attachments and bang best gun ever
This in Search & Destory use it with Ak47 and suppeser it kicks ass!

gun for the english man in side you good at all levels good if you a new to black ops had to be 10 due to mag size
also known as the SA80, this gun is the best all rounder in the game should be at least 6
I use this gun all the time it is good

19Ballistic Knife
Its very good because I had 11 killstreak with it on jungle, when I was only knifing
I am really good against my really good cousin but I beat him badly
Very good for rushing classes
[Newest]It can kill with only one shot and you can recover the blade to use it again

Best gun in short range

1 shot one kill at short, 2-3 shots at medium.

-No attachment
Olyimpia is good because the dAmGe is pretty good but not many bullets. And no attChments

The spectre is crazy good with the rapid fire attachment and scavenger I say it should easily be number 7
similar too the MPL just a little worst combat performance in my opinion.


tiger camo, rapid fire and this gun mercs all

22SPAS 12
The best shotgun semi-automatic high damage and great for close quarter

23Dragon's Breath
Come on people it shoots a bullets that on fire blow there feet of
Anything that kills with fire is cool

24Monkey Bomb

This shot gun is the bomb in my opinion I am that's shot guns master and it is good with a python as well I think that it is 1 right to the olimpia
I love this gun. Every time I use this gun I get at least a 3.0 k/d. Great paired with marathon, lightweight, and steady aim. I love to run around and hip-fire it. Best gun in my opinion. Overpowered, like the spas-12 of mw2
this shot gun is a pump action an can blow holes in anything good on multiplayer even better on zombies

Dual wield scorpions own almost any person that crosses your path close range. Easily one of the strongest up close and personal weapons. If you put steady aim on with this class, it can kill medium to long range. I have personally made it a goal to have my combat record show this as my favorite gun, and achieved it... Over 13000 kills with it. I play as a rusher, and using the dual wield class on maps like firing range, summit, or nuketown I can get dogs on a regular basis. Amazing weapon.. How often do you see it as a favorite weapon? Got some bragging rights.
Should be in the top 5. Amazing gun with Dual Wield and Grip
It's good but poor due to range

There is no wander waffle in Call of Duty bo
It is the best wonder weapon
Wunderwaffe in BO? You suck?

28Winter's Howl
This gun is beast mode it's the best like in zombies would you rather have famas or Gali
In zombies it's fun to freeze them zombies!
laugh out loud

Good gun to pair with second chance as your already used to repeatedly pulling the trigger rather than holding it, it also has excellent damage with 1 shot kill in hardcore, the sights are attractive as well (for me anyway).
I add the acog scope and it is pretty good.
Get red dot sight on this and you'll own a lot of people :)
I really like this gun and I hope other people also like it too

Very good equipment in black ops if your in a hiding place you should place it!


32China Lake

Amazing grenade. Just throw it randomly and your bound to get a kill! Especially on small maps like Nuketown. It also sticks to your enemy.
It is so good for instant kills just equip with ninja pro and I just love them

Ppsh 41 has most speed and accuaracy inthe game


Amazing gernade launcher hope they put it in Call of Duty ghosts with a map pack or BO2 with a map pack

37M72 LAW

OHKO, if you trow this boy literally below their feet, plus if you lucky, you can get few guys die together

small weapon does serious damage at close range

40Camera Spike
1. Find a good place to put it.
2. Find a good hiding place.
3. When you see someone, sneak up and knife them.
awesome equipment!
1. Good for camping
2. You can see wear people are sneek up on them and kill

41Double-Barreled Shotgun
Availiable only in the Rezzurection pack in is a wall weapon. It is by far the strongest wall gun in the zombies series maintaining a 1 shot kill up ti level 20 and a 2 shot kill up to level 40. PaP is 1 shot kill up to level 30 and 2 shot up to level 46.
The Olympia is just that old fashioned double whammy 12 guage shotgun




Awesome kills and awesome performance



Recon its great with a spas 12 or something because when you ruin out of bullets you can quickly change to the cz75 just have it on automatic otherwise doesn't work


50Nova 6
This gas is boss, it is like A lethal grenade cAuse it does damage and it is also like. Tactical grenade becAuse you can't see that well through the gas


52Stick Grenade

53Zap Gun
They are only in zombies sadly but are very fun to use and they are uber fun to use when you attach them together

How can you not make a list without this gun


56DSR .50

57 V-R11
A bit under rated

How is this gun not on the list!

its quick to unlock
low recoil
easy-to-use iron sights
VERY rapid fire
looks cool and great emblem position
and it DOMINATES with scavenger

and if that don't convince you look at this.

pm63 famas
k/d 5.15 k/d 2.00

Its such a good gun if you like to light run, aim fast and a have a low recoil rapid fire deadly damage gun.
This is one good gun that people use loads of people love this gun


This Gun is simply great with Extended mag and Grip! That combo and because of the really good range (8 bars) It can easily be named as one of the best smg's in the game!
really fast fire rate but weak

I'm so glad that barely anyone uses this gun, it's fantastic. With a silencer and scavenger pro I can "own". It's very easy to use and I find myself using it on almost every map. It doesn't need grip or a site to be a very nice weapon. It's size is deceiving, it looks like a pistol. But it packs a lot of punch, making it my favorite weapon in the game.
I always use this gun because it is just as good as the AK74u with a silencer, maybe even better.


I agree,
Its really good.
But personlly I prefer the pm63

Some amazing stuff, instant kill and faster throw than aim with your weapon, but some experience is needed.
Amazing kills with this

Its a sick gun... Heavy so can't sprint but you can lay off at least 2 kills every death qs it just its through everything in its path... Leaving nothing behind apart from death and kills
Has good clip it shoots really fast and takes 2 shots to kill someone

This features in the Project Nova WW2 segment and has a decent rate of fire.

This gun in nova 6 is extremly acurat but poor rate of fire

PSG1 is awesome I mean sometimes it's hard to 1 shot kill them but besides that it's great
This is a one shot kill so I use it a lot not always though


This gun has the best stabillity and its ten time stronger than any sniper guns except on L9a1 beacause it ain't bolt action and it is the top sniper if you want to take down your victim without taking time to put on another ammo like L9a1
[Newest]I love the psg1i got a 70 and 4 game with it so yeah


Fast hip fire up close it awesome
My favorite weapon

I take long range kills very easy
