Best Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Primary Guns

The Top Ten


It is so good for rushers and it is also good for people that use ghost and stuff with silencer. So I reckon it's the best gun over all. People who love msmc please vote and try to make this the the #1 gun in the game!

Laser site definitely. I also rock a silencer which seems to reduce recoil. I am going to try long barrel as stated below but I think this gun deserves #2 spot in my opinion!

I used this ever since I unlocked it. Best gun in the game. Throw on fast mag, suppressor and laser and you can just beast around all day. Best range of the SMGs and the highest damage.

First time I used this gun I went 18-4. Was able to launch all score streaks. This is my favorite gun than the skorpion. I am on prestige 1 level 38 and ready to get the skorpion unlocked so I can use it again. This is a badass gun though. I was impressed my 1st time using it.

2 AN-94

It takes some time to get used to, and is unlocked at the last level, but makes up for it as being one if the best guns in the game. The accuracy isn't M27 recoil, but it is still accurate. The way the gun switches fire rates can be kind of off putting for new players, and the scar actually is more powerful, but it is without a doubt one of the best overall guns. It's not op or anything, it's just very good. It's like a more powerful version of the Mtar.

Great overall gun. High damage. Great accuracy and range.

Amazingly accurate. No need for any sights because the iron sight is really good leaving room for other attachments. I use fore grip, quick clip and stock making it even more deadly accurate with very little recoil.

Strong overall with the first 2 shots coming out quicker - dylan1321721

3 PDW-57

Best gun ever a must for everybody since you get it at level 4 and you can use it up to prestige its a really amazing gun with its nice range and 3 shot kill usual this gun couldn't have been better with such a large magazine the weapon gets even better and in the right hands you can destroy your enemies.

Great power and on target

Large mag and strong overall - dylan1321721

It is so amazing with suppressor, fast mag, and adjustable stock.

4 MP7

I hated this gun at first, but over time I have grown extremely fond of it. My KD raised significantly after I incorporated the MP7 into my classes. I use it with Laser and fast mag and then ballista with ballistics. That class is beast. I also have another MP7 class with reflex, rapid fire, and fast mag and it is also dominating on smaller maps (especially Hijack). Overall, this gun won't deceive you with the right attachments. - benhos

This fully automatic gun is one of the best guns in the game system because this gun can go to many extents its a perfect gun for shooting out in the open and also for snipering in high range places depending on the attachments overal this is a great gun to use in black ops 2.

I've used the mp7 since I got the game and I've gotten 10 nuclears and 24 swarms with it that's why I think the. Mp7 is the best

I use it with suppressor and extended clip I got 2 nukes on domination

5 M27

No recoil gives you the ultimate advantage when building a class a sight is not needed but you can throw one on there just to get the job done. If you want run a stealth class and let the enemy come to you or rush at them with force your choice

I used this in the beginning and I was ALWAYS 1st and 2nd

No recoil and is probably the best to per unlock, once you find your attachments this 3 shot kill gun is probably the best!

Such a good gun. Throw on silencer and extended clip and run ghost with scavenger and you have a great stealth class. The fact it has such little recoil is amazing

6 Skorpion EVO

If you get rapid fire on this bad boy, you gonna be a killing machine! - PewDiePie

Fast rate of fire

I'm saying that is the best gun in history

Shreds through anyone!


Though the recoil on this AR is really high, the damage output at the medium to long range is equally high. I find that the weapon is best served to pick off snipers and make people who can't see you suffer. My personal favorite.

Very versatile as most ARs are. High damage output with long range. No drop off with silencer. 3 shot kill. You really don't need any attachments so that lets you spend more tokens on perks. 1st gun I spent a token on.

So underused yet so powerful I love it

What I like about it that it deals a heck amount of damage and BO2 lowered the recoil. In real life, it's very high.


Very Underrated! A perfect All rounder with the right attachments and Perk choices!

On zombies, beside the grenade launcher, this thing is a beast!

Extremely accurate.
11. DSR50

Love it. They did good with the MTAR this game. The MTAR-X made me hate this gun and its 'variants' but I decided to play BO2 again and fell in love. It just feels so right. Not the best, but definitely deserves top 10

9 DSR-50

Just such a beast. Similar to the intervention from mw2, a bolt action with high damage but small mag size, but you can fix that with extended mags, and throw on ballistics cpu as well. This is the trickshotting and kill feeding sniper for black ops 2. Hope to see it again in future Call of Duty games

The DSR 50 is my personal favorite because of it's shear power at range and not only that this weapon can be great for a long range role. I also made a class design for this class to completely demolish enemies on local mode.

This was my first gold and max prestige gun it's just really good for trick shooting no other gun can compare to it

DSR obviously stands for deadliest sniper rifle

10 Type 25

This gun is basically the 2.0 version of the FAMAS, which is great the famas was the best gun in BO1, now this is the best gun in BO2.

Light and good for movement and scouting. High fire rate makes it ideal for such things.

It has no recoil and it shoots fast, its iron sights are good too. Whats not to love!

Best gun I've used so far. Good range, damage, fire rate, overall a great gun.

The Contenders

11 FAL

This definitely needs to be higher on the list. with a reliable 2-3 shot kill and a 25 round magazine, what else could you ask for? I went nuclear using this, my SWAT ran out of ammo and I picked up someone's FAL with no attachments and just went on a rampage

Probably the best gun in any call of duty. No recoil very high damage output. This gun go ham in the paint

Why does anyone not want a gun that's fire rate is comparable to the AN-94 and has better everything else. Put select fire on and you're done.

Good damage and low recoil and you can do without select fire unless your fingers have some weird muscle problem or something

12 Vector K10

In general a pretty solid SMG, best with silencer. You won't need sights because the iron sight is good.

Best gun in my opinion. It's designed to have no recoil. Best with target finder and fast mag.

Have my highest K.D average with this gun. Attachments are INSANE

If you don't vote for this gun you obviously haven't tried it out.

13 Peacekeeper

The REAL attachments you need are quick draw and laser sight or extended mags. None of that suppressor bull crap.

The best gun in the game just put silencer and fast mag and see if you don't get nuclear today

Even though it is a dlc gun it is the boom and nothing is like it

My favorite weapon use it all of the time

14 M8A1

Honestly unless it's in hardcore I don't like it and even have a tough time using it in hardcore

Most accurate and kills someone with a trigger pull

Hmm. Reminds me of a gun called the Hellraiser in another game, don't know why...

Currently trying to get this thing gold, and it's amazing. I'd recommend it!

15 Ballista

Best gun in the game! Got my first quad feed with this gun and it is a beast! No recoil, and it has a lot of damage. Got my first ORbital VSAT with this and it is just the best.

It's hell to play against this gun. If you're a sniper, you'll love it, but if you're a reg-gunner like me, you'll loathe it.

I love the Ballista because it has a good scope and it is good at quick scoping

First round I ever played with this sniper, I got a swarm. It's a GREAT gun!

16 R-870 MCS

This weapon is the most powerful weapon in the game because at max it will deal a brutal 400 damage and I use this weapon in a class for when the enemy has caused me to rage and this works for me as long as I don't rage again.

I think its an awesome gun you can use it in level 4 and I got it in gold in less than 24 hours it's the best gun I have ever tried in my life. Also not everyone can kill you its hard for others but extremely easy for you so try it.

LOVE THIS SHOTGUN! 1 hit kills at short to almost medium range. The only thing people could say badly about this gun is that it has no range, I only have 1 thing to say to that... It's A SHOTGUN

This has to be my favorite gun I went on nuke town and went 41-22 and I suck at this game like I am getting better but really I suck and yet with this gun I am beast. I find it best to have the hamr with it so that say I play hardcore it is like an instant kill so it's a great set up I love it so much like danng

17 SWAT-556

I prefer burst fire weapons over automatic ones due to the fact it kills faster than most over weapons in the game (Except Snipers and Shotguns). But automatic is still good, burst fire guns are fun to use if your accurate but at the same there are some disadvantages like poor close quarter combat for instance.

This weapon is a great chose and not only that but this weapon somehow seems to lose to the M8A1 but the thing is that stats show the SWAT is a better chose because of bullets being wasted. The SWAT only wastes in a range of 0-2 bullets compared to it rival which wastes bullets in a range of 0-3.

In most videos I watch, people say it's the worst assault rifle in Call of Duty history. That's stupid though because its basically a one round burst kill wherever you are, I can get one burst kills across turbine no problem. Also, it's a very accurate gun and has great iron sights.

Helped me in 1v3 situation in search n destroy. In amazing weapon if you know how to use it effectively and efficiently. The three round burst is very helpful in all situations.

18 Ray Gun

Hey its good in zombies. It deserves to be on the list. I GOT THE RAY GUN! Love saying that. Best zombie gun. Instant classic.

Why put zombies guns on a multiplayer list

Best gun in zombie!

Absolute junk in zombies I'll trade this on for almost any AR

19 KSG

I love this gun it is my main and I just never get bored of using it. Even though I suck at BO2 I can still do some work with this gun!

Great weapon if you have good accuracy, also it has a good range

Pretty much a sniper rifle 1 shot kills to the head

Once your accuracy is up this is a beast gun it can work like a ballista with iron sight! :-)


Similar to an ar but with heavier for power and larger ammo capacity

Its really good on hardcore its like an instant kill I go beast

Best gun for zombies and multiplayer

Deadly at close range, mid range, and long range. Only takes 4-5 bullets to kill. Just put a foregrip and a sight of your choice on and you are unstoppable.

21 Chicom CQB

When I first unlocked it, I thought it was going to be a waste of unlock tokens. Little did I know this gun would be my main killing machine!

This weapon is amazing. Had know idea how op it was until I used it. Took only about 3.5 hours to get gold.

Best gun ever I just started using it with select fire and it rocks

Beast weapon on Nuketown

22 KAP-40
23 MK 48

This gun absolutely destroys at a distance even with a silencer on the gun. The damage is amazing at all range and the recoil is a non factor most of the time. This gun with target finder, quickdraw, and silencer is a monster.

I love this gun I got close to 2,000 kills with this gun.

This gun is very underrated. When you use attachments like quickdraw and stock it helps you vet over the slow mobility. Almost no recoil and almost always 3 shots to kill even with silencer.

I have nearly 30,000 kills with this gun just need a pistol for close range have a 2.60 kd

24 B23R

This is the best pistol in Black Ops 2! How is this #31!?

Best pistol in the game by far

25 XPR-50

This sniper is the best weapon ever. Throw in Dual Band and Ballistics CPU and you will be beast. This gun has an amazing fire rate, and is one shot kill waist and above. Best Sniper ALL TIME

High damage with good fire rate pretty damn good overall.

I got gold on this gun in 1 hour


BEST TIME TO KILL in the game plus big mag and good range

Best damage and fire rate combo in the game by far

The QBB is one of the best guns in the game it is always dependable for me it's the best when your on overflow

Great range mag size damage and fire rate best gun in the game

27 Five Seven

If you hove a trigger finger this gun is the secondary for you good with fast mag extended clip and long barrel. This gun has very little rec0lil.

Overall a great pistol to use at close to far range. Great damage kills in 2-5 bullets

This is a PRIMARY weapons list.. Lol.

It is a mini fal/smr mk?


Best gun in the game! Amazing with Stock and whatever attachment you want other than that!

Best in the game at medium to long range. Quick handle, silencer or fmj and must use thermal optical. I'm not a very good player and I own with this set up.

Beast with target finder, fmj and quick draw

They both have good ROFS, and they are both very accurate BEST LMGS

29 SMR

2 shot kill at any range and put select fire on and you got a full auto killing MACHINE

This Weapon is my favorite AR because of the long range combat of a 2 hit kill at any range.

This gun is very underrated cause almost no one use it. - DanteTopTenners

Super duper high powered, fast time to kill over any short, it's a boist.


Gayest weapon in all the game

It bloody good Iam so surprised its not in the top 5

It's so fun to use this gun against quickscopers, they get so pissed!

It is so good. you never have it fly up a
Like the dsr 50 it has steady aim you can fire multaple bullets instead of having one bullet at a time

31 Tac-45

Don't know if you noticed but this is a primary weapons list not secondary

Duel wield one shot each from them

It's a secondary weapon.


32 M216
33 Ray Gun Mark 2

Best gun ever

Automatic ray gun same damege

34 Python

Awesome gun in zombies who does not agree

35 S12

Most favorite shotgun in the game because of the fast follow up shots that even the M1216 would lose to and has more power to it's shot. I would recommend anyone who is a fan of this weapon to check out Ahoy because he built a class that could be someone's worst nightmare should they try and fight back and is also a threat to Snipers because of the follow up shots.

This weapon is often overlooked, just put on fast mag and the reloads will be fine. Its good if you have a trigger finger because it is semi-automatic

By far the best.

It is a very beast gun in cqc and it is great for those medium range kills.

36 Combat Knife

Bad ass and it has swag

37 Crossbow

Ultimate raging weapon because of the explosive bolts and also can cause people to go with instant revenge if used properly.

Great if you havegood accuracy. and tri-bolt is the best with this weopon.

38 ACR

Wait, this isn't a Bo2 gun.

It has no recoil such a gream weapon

39 RPD
40 RPG

The Rpg is good but id rather prefer the Smaw instead

41 Remington 870 MCS

''I honestly didn't like it at first for its pump action but then I grew to love because of its good range great damage and overall perfect accuracy.long story short it's the perfect shotgun.''
