Best Call of Duty: Ghosts Weapons

The Top TenXW

1Honey Badger

In Ghosts, a silenced weapon is very deadly. With the wide-open maps, an assault rifle does much better than an SMG, which is opposite of Black ops 2. The Honey Badger is an assault rifle, which has an integrated Silencer. This gives you room in your attachments for a fore grip, plus whatever floats your boat.

This was my FIRST gold gun in Call of Duty: Ghosts (took me three days to get gold). You'd think since it is silenced it would be horrible at range, right... WRONG! This gun just has amazing iron sights and somehow a good feel for long range. This gun with that perk that allows you to have three attachments to your gun (whatever it is called), well you can have FOUR attachments with the Honey Badger. Well, this has been my argument for why he 300 AAC Honey Badger is my favorite rifle in Call of Duty history, even more than the ACR 6.8 from MW3.

Many would find it useless to make the honey badger a semi-automatic because it already has little recoil, but on semi, with a scope that has an increased zoom, the honey badger is similar in power to a marksman rifle, it's very adaptable, and a great gun

Most plain gun I wouldn't use it it is just average

2Remington R5

The Remington R5 is amazing since it is both powerful and accurate. Long distance engagements even against opposing snipers can be won with a Remington since it's so steady when firing, and kills in usually 3 hits. And if your worried about the smaller mag capacity, don't be. The higher damage per round makes up for a little less ammo, and on top of that the reduced fire rate aids in limiting ammo consumption. This weapon is extremely useful when mastered, and is best in the hands of those who prefer accurate and reliable fire over spray and prey.

Now, this gun has its dis-advantages. It's a long weapon and is easier to spot by enemies if your around a corner or cover. Also the slower fire rate sometimes means that even if you aim down sights and injure an opponent, they can often still manage to kill you with a faster firing weapon if they in return also land their shots. To avoid this from happening however you can use the perk FOCUS which assist in less flinch when shot. All ...more

This thing is awesome! One time I got 29 kills with it on strike zone24/7 domination.

I always like to use this gun because of it's awesome damage and it's cool and useful attachments!

This is my favorite gun in ghosts and is op

The AK-12 is a very nice weapon in every way. Low recoil, high damage, and a relatively high fire rate. When I play I always use this gun I recommend it best gun in Ghosts.

This is million times better then the arx 160 best gun in game - addisondavis

Favorite gun use fore grip and silencer

Best SMG my ass. It is weaker in stats than the vector, and has terrible iron sights.

Best SMG in its class. Comes with fantastic iron sights and looks great. Its bullpup design makes for faster reloads. Put a muzzle brake on it and it's great at long range, add a fore grip for less recoil. Overall great gun!

Best SMG ever, if you put the right attachments on it

I love the gun because it is pretty good

5The Ripper

This weapon is really quite overpowered. You have an smg with a very high fire rate and controllable recoil, and then you can switch to an assault rifle for longer ranges instantaneously (yes, proven to have a 0.00 second change time). This means the Ripper has 2x the versitality of any other weapon in the game, as it can handle two times as many engagements, if not more. While neither the SMG or AR forms of the weapon are particularly the best of its respective class (although this can be argued) they are both more than good enough to get most jobs done. I believe that if they should balance the weapon, they should do so by making the SMG stats active only when the sight-change animation is complete, and vice-versa, so players will use the 2-in-1 feature to anticipate what engagements they will encounter and what is most likely to be helpful, rather than instantly switch to what they need when in a pinch. In addition, make the AR variant show less SMG traits (hipfire spread, ADS ...more

OP weapon. Both SMG and assault rifle. I use grip and silencer with it as it already has sight!

The Ripper is a good damage and high fire rate gun. I use it all the time. I use it as my primary and I use the secondary as a sniper. It is great for all maps beecause if you need a sniper you have one or if you need a regular gun you have it.

Its good I like it a-lot!

Best gun to start with in this game.

7Vector CRB

The Vector is an amazing weapon. It provides a very high damage with a low recoil. I would say this weapon is better than the MTAR-X, as it does more damage and has far better handling. It may be so that an MTAR has rifle class range, but a Vector has more controllable fire and the accuracy makes up for a little less range.

This is a load of rubbish the vector is best it has great accuracy and is op works well in medium gun fights like the mtar but this has to be top

Just take a look at competitive Call of Duty if you're looking for a reason why.

Best gun for any map

Best weapon ever

Why is this the best weapon! The AK-12, First of all has low recoil, long range abilities, amazing iron sights, and since when are we basing guns on their looks? This is probably one of the most used guns right next to the honey badger.

ARX-160 is my favourite gun in the game because of its good looking!

Who put this in 10. I ate pie by the way

That gun sucks ass

My favorite gun in the game after the Remington R5

I love this gun. It has a great rate of fire and can do some damage at close/medium range. I am someone who is very stealthy. When I put a silencer on this gun no one can beat me, (well none of the cpu's can )
But I LOVE this gun. It needs to be in the top 3.

This gun is beast, it have great damage and the iron sights makes the honey badger look ugly, and its damage makes the vector crb cry.

Beast one shot sniper is all I want and it looks nice.

This is one of the best sniper rifles in Call of Duty history it looks like an remake frome the Remington 700 and M40A3 from Call of Duty 4 modern warfare and I really enjoy that

Combines the power of the power rifles with the accuracy and fire rate of the accuracy rifles.

How is this not higher? This gun is fantastic, great damage, clip size and appearance!

Vepr is better, but I love its ability to keep a stedy lock on target from long distance (if tried with foregrip)

15Maverick AR

This gun does not deserve 13th place it should be in the top 5... If you are not good with this weapon and you are using a sight then I strongly suggest you use the iron sights, the flash suppressor, and the fore grip.


This Shotgun is the most powerful shotgun in the game and does at max a brutal 800 damage up close and that's easily handy should there be any protest.

This is the most powerful Sniper rifle along side the lynx but it has better traits than the lynx and can do a lot of damage when annoying the enemy.

Best sniper rifle Call of Duty made


Best weapon I got 28 kills to 5 deaths its super stealthy long range attacks one shot kill almost all the time with rapid follow up shots.

Coupled with agility it is the best. Low recoil, high damage and massive magazine size

Didn't even know it was in the game...?
