Top 10 Halo 3 Weapons

Bman23
What are the best weapons when playing Halo 3 online, excluding any vehicles.

The Top TenXW

1Shotgun

Oh yeah its quail hunting season, or elite hunting whatever, get in close and you're the beast, it works well with sprint and armor lock, and it kills the idiots trying to use an energy sword

I love the shotgun because it destroys anything in its path. The only thing I hate about it is that you have to be up close to the alien in order for it to be effective, because if one them has a gravity hammer your probably gonna die

It's a awesome weapon it beats the energy sword by far its also one of the best weapons on Xbox live

Not only is it the best halo 3 weapon but it's the best weapon ever in halo

2Battle Rifle

This gun is the reason why I still play halo 3. The battle rifle is just so good, very deadly in the hands of an experienced player

Its just so powerful at short to even long range its like a smaller sniper rife

I can't believe that the sword is above this. The BR is suitable for all ranges and you don't have to be right next to someone to kill them. The Battle Rifle has the most range besides for the sniping weapons and its three-round burst allows for you to get someone's shields down and kill them in the same shot. - ScoishMaloish

This weapon is awesome. It's very good at take out brutes

3Energy Sword

sword spree is the hardest achievment by close quarter combat rang. that's why I reccomend energy sword is the best because it is a 1- hit k. o. and when you go near 12 inches you can already slice him with tatanuim speed genitics by energy sword. - animedude7

energy sword, the number 1 prototype kickass! - animedude7

Energy swords are so mad I slaughter anyone any brute any grunt any jackle and any flood with it

Energy sword is good but I think it's just something that people use to win every match

4Rocket Launcher

dude in multi player I wiped every one out by locking on to there veicles its sweet

Very powerful but not as much ammo as a sniper rifle. - Bman23

Requires little aim because of its incredible blast radius. It can also kill multiple enemies with one shot. requires little skill to use too. the only con is that it has little ammunition.

5Gravity Hammer

Its to powerful for the opponent you smack it on the ground or the oppenent and bam it kills everything around you

Combination of brute strength and SPARTAN intelligence.

The most beast weapon in the game. - Bman23

I agree, the grav ham is just to beastly to be this far down on the list

6Sniper Rifle

This gun is just great. I use it all the time I mean all. I don't know why but I sometimes use melee with it. Once my friend a halo expert once challenged me to a matchmaking fight and I actually was a beginner at that time but I actually got him.

the only reason why the sniper isn't #1 is beacause you need to know how to use it and most people don't
- dissthisnoob

Even if the assault rifle is like the icon gun... nothing beats this. - LordA117

All I need is a good view, and a sniper rifle, and I have won. A shotgun won't do you any good if you are dead.

7Type-47 Ultra Heavy Assault Platform (Scarab)

Guys seriously this isn't a weapon... If you can't use it then it shouldn't be on this list! AND MODS DON'T COUNT - Zombieman99

It is from one of the hardest enemies to kill, why not

9Machine Gun Turret

*Rip! *
*Clang! *
*Rapapapapapapapa! *
The sounds of the Machine Gun Turret at work. While at first a sluggish, burdenous stationary derp, once ripped off it becomes a menacing cleaver to chop through Blue Team members. She's less accurate on later titles, but you might be able to score a kill at medium range with ol' Sheila here. But if you can close the gap, well, hope you have a mop.

Very powerful and you can break it off and move around with it. - Bman23

10Missile Pod

Can use a lot of damage but not that much ammo. - Bman23

The Contenders

11SMG

Me and the bullet hose share great times. She helps me mow down hordes of players as if they're paper. I don't know about you guys, but I'd take the SMG over a BR any day.

This gun shreds through people like a lawn mower. Very rewarding if you know how to control it.

Two of these and any enemy you face is dead in a second

12Mauler

mauler are awesome but very rare I alway pick one up and then spend hours scavenging in dead piles of brutes for another very rewarding

14Covenant Carbine

I take the carbine over the battle rifle any chance I get. Deadly for sniping off brutes, jackals and grunts with head shots and easy on the ammo too.

The covenant carbine is pretty awesome because if you shoot someone in a lethal spot they'll die pretty much every time.

The carbine is one of the best weapons in halo ever and I prefere it over the DMR and BR its my 2nd favourite weapon right after the needle rifle.

15Spartan Laser

If aimed correctly at the perfect time, it will automatically kill the opponent. - Bman23

It lets you sweep the enemy team and tear vehicles apart even though you have to charge it. It's well balanced.

Nothing's more satisfying than lasering a fully loaded Warthog with one of these beasts.

16Brute Shot

Is fast, good movement so not that heavy, but takes little damage.

18Beam Rifle
19Needler
