Favorite Fallout New Vegas Weapons


The Top TenXW

1Anti-Material Rifle

There's nothing better in a FPS than getting a one shot kill with a bad ass sniper rifle. THis is one of the only guns int the game that will grant you that awesomeness. - thisismyonlyvoice

This gun is for slaying not wounding

"Have you seen what one of those anti-materiel rifles can do to a deathclaw? "
Oh yes I have, and it's beautiful. Love this rifle and everything about this awesome game. Fallout: New Vegas is spectacular!

2Fat Man

Although it seems better in Fallout 3, its still overpowered in New Vegas. - thisismyonlyvoice

Two words Experimental M.I.R.V. It's the unique version of this weapon and it fires 8 nukes at a time

3Oh Baby!

Probably the most overpowered melee weapon in the game. - thisismyonlyvoice

Hit's hard, and easy to get, for me best melee weapon.

4Ranger Sequoia

Amazing revolver that will erase your enemies head. - thisismyonlyvoice

5A Light Shining In Darkness
6Ballistic Fist

One hit anything in the wasteland! How can you not like it!

7All American

A b*tch to get to in Vault 34, but an overpowered Marksman Carbine. - thisismyonlyvoice

8Holy Frag Grenades

Can take out the Alpha death claw with just one of them. To bad there are only three ): - thisismyonlyvoice

9Brush Gun

Basically an overpowered hunting rifle. (Sorry I keep the using the word overpowered) - thisismyonlyvoice

Why is this gun so low on the list? It's the best all-around gun and is stronger than the AMR.

10Alien Blaster

An extremely powerful weapon that is second only to the Anti-Material rifle.

Can only be obtained with the Wild Wasteland trait.
Totally worth it.

The Newcomers

?Debug Megapistol

Sorry but this is for pc players only the Debug megapistol is a 9mm pistol that does heavy damage Although you can't actually get it in the game (without console commands) it does 9999 damage and can 1-shot anything and has a ammo capability of 1120 rounds and uses 9mm round as ammo and can be reloaded 87 times before breaking and can be repaired with other 9mm pistols.

The Contenders

11.44 Magnum Revolver

With all the mods, this is a powerful, durable and very effective gun.


Favorite sidearm for sure. Really cool looking and it has critical chance. High rate of fire and really awesome reload animation. Great gun.

13Archimedes II

How the heck is this gun not even on the list!? Archimedes 2 is the single greatest gun in this entire franchise. It is an absolute joy to use and was a brilliant idea. First place. Ps. If you don't know what it is, YouTube it!

It's a bit glitchy but can easily be fixed. I agree with the other guy, how is this not first? It has unlimited ammo, massive blast radius, ungodly damage, disintegration chance and it also looks cool! Best super space laser ever!

I didn't initially put this one on the list because, while it is arguably the most powerful weapon in the game, you can only use it once a day. - thisismyonlyvoice

14Plasma Caster

Might be the best energy weapon in the game. - thisismyonlyvoice

15Multiplas Rifle
16Mysterious Magnum

A badass revolver that plays the mysterious stranger's theme whenever it's drawn or holstered. Very nice looking and powerful.

Kill the lonesome drifter towards the beginning of the game for it. Worth it.


The damage and range makes up for the single shot only, my
Favorite unique.

18That Gun
1912.7 mm SMG

The 12.7mm submachine gun is really nice looking, effective and powerful. Favorite!

Most ammo efficient weapon of them all, and the best thing to come out of the Dead Money DLC.
