Best Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Multiplayer Weapons

The Top Ten

1 AN-94

Lets stoc with facts and statistics why this is better than the msmc, fact1-it has a faster kill time at all ranges compared to msmc, don't believe me check yourself, Fact2-it has much more moderate-low recoil enhancing its abilities at longer ranges, something the msmc greatly lacks and there mainly the only two facts needed to tell this gun is better than the msmc, I use this with silencer, quickdraw and stock

As versatile as it gets, this rifle is a beast in multiplayer. Since the first two rounds fire faster, it is wise to "tap" the trigger instead of holding it down to gain maximum damage output. You can customize this weapon to your liking very easily and is useful in any situation. To full appreciate this weapon, you have to play it to believe it.

The reason the is better than scar h is because the sight and the faster fire rate screw damage all you have to do is put elect fire an the smr and it's better than the scar h possible even the an 94

I like this gun but... it sucks. I mean, literally sucks. its good on private match, but it sucks. the fire rat is bad, but the iron sight is good. I wouldn't recommend this type of gun and go with the MTAR 'cause it is 50-50. sorry AN-94 lovers. I'm a Master Prestige and I would go with the MTAR

2 Remington 870 MCS

I agree that this is the best shotgun in the game! But useless at long range, so it's a good idea to get a Overkill wildcard and use a SMG or a Type 25 with ACOG sights. Tip: Don't replace the iron sights with anything! The best attachment for this Badass shotgun is the long barrel, releasing a hilarious storm of rage from noobs and even pros! This shotgun is great for campers or runners as it is a one shot kill, but if you are a runner and using this shotgun, jump and shoot if anyone runs into you. This things accuracy is beyond physics at close range, you don't even need to aim, great for beginners!

This is complete and utter god mode. you don't die if your even 80% accurate with it! This can't compare to the ksg, spas 12, hs10, or even stakeout! This thing beats all! Shotgun users are all over this thing and I can see why! If you go around areas and kinda lock down a certain area you won't die with it. get 10 feet next to a person he's done. 20 feet? Done! 30 feet with long barrel? Done! This is god mode this needs to be at the tippity top!

Even though it's a shotgun it has good range and its also a shotgun. although the reloading is slow, you can always stop halfway with a quick bucket shot in the face. I find this gun powerful and really fun to use, especially in search and destroy. but you do need a secondary for you second gun

This gun was my baby. I was, and am, super good with it, and upon introducing it's magic to my friends they do amazing with it too. Seriously man (or girl), you gotta try this thing. The 1-shot-kill is awesome, and with the right class you are gonna be getting nuclears. Gotta love it.


Just saying, the fore grip has been PROVEN to only change the accuracy of the gun by 2% (1% for assault rifles and LMGs) so it is almost impossible for the recoil to be a less noticable issue with grip vs without. That being said, I do agree that the MSMC is an incredibly versatile weapon that I love for its lack of necessary attachments. Several weapons can't even function without certain attachments (ex. KSG w/ quickdraw) but this weapon is useful with or without any alterations, allowing for more room in customization (as long as an attachment point isn't wasted on the grip) (;

You can rush spray camp and pretty much do anything with this damn gun. The only downfall is the range... But that's change able with long barrel. Best smug by far and considering bo2 is pretty close quarters my favorite gun. Should be 1 then an then pdw

First gun I had two lightning strikes in the same life with. Great for small maps like highjakced and nuketown. Put quickdraw, extended clip and long barrel,you'll be ready to go. Just pack it up with scavenger. Only downfall is range, but in small maps that's not much of a problem

Ever since the PDW patch this weapon has become the best all around smh in the game. It's good at a short to mid range. It is recommended that you use it with toughness and long barrel. Fun and QuickDraw handle are nice as this gun I meant to win gunfights.

4 Scar-H

This was my first gold gun, it was easy since of the damage and moderate recoil. It is pretty well balanced, and is easy to aim and kill people with. An amazing gun, it deserves a spot up in the top 5 I think, but that's just me

What happened to the SCAR-H? It got buffed, gave it more damage, there's not a lot of recoil.
Damage: 45-33
Rate of Fire: 625 RPM (Slow but high damage makes up for it)
This should be number 1.
The AN-94 is crap.

SCAR-H is one of the best assault rifles in the game. Damage is high, rate of fire is decent, and the recoil is good. I think it is underrated. I use it for medium to long range combat.

Love this gun. The recoil is high but that just gives you tons of headshots. Iron sights are best and the damage is well high, two headshot kill, three anywhere else, and penetration is best in game

5 DSR 50

This is a great bolt-action sniper rifle for beginner quickscopers, because the ADS is a tiny bit slower than the ballista allowing a little bit more time to aim, and easier to blackscope. Almost always a one hit kill on core, the DSR-50 doesn't need to be #1 but it definitely deserves its current spot on the list.

I've used the DSR 50 and it has the largest one hit kill area of any Sniper Rifle with a shot anywhere above the waist. Despite being out classed in a couple of areas the DSR is my go to Sniper Rifle and is the number 1 Sniper in my opinion.

You got me there! I used the DSR 50 and even though I'm not a boring camper, I can still pick out targets easily! Although it's a great gun overall, its not a suitable choice for quick scopers as it is heavy and aiming through the sights is painfully slow.

I think that if you have a choice between dsr and ballista choose ballistic because first it aims faster and its just plain better and you run like a snail with the DDR it should be ranked 8 or somthin

6 M27

I wish the m4 was in this game, but this is a really cool replacement, no recoil, decent or good everything else, this, like the m4, should be a go to gun for n00bs

This gun is very OP for new players and pros
Personally you need good attachments for this weapon like FMJ and quick draw and
any sight I go for reflex, but this is truly better than the AN-94

The M27 has been my favorite weapon since I unlocked it. This weapon has never let me down. I don't think I've ever lost in a gunfight with this weapon equipped. It I a fast, agile gun with great accuracy and pretty good damage and fire rate. The iron sights work well as a scope in itself so it'll free up another weapon perk.

This gun is the best, definitely deserves a higher spot. It's fire rate is like an smg with an amazing range. The grip, suppressor, and red dot sight are must haves. Screw the cheerleader, this is my prom date.

7 PDW-57

The PDW-57 has an amazing aim you don't need sights. Its has no recoil if you put a laser sight in it your aim and hip fire wont generally miss. The range is good for bo2 maps and putting the FMJ on it makes a difference especially on nuketown every loves nuketown so it will get voted for in the lobby and I find it extremely challenging to loss gun fights against any automatic gun and those are most used

Awesome clip size, sweet damage at all ranges, and its recoil is more than manageable. It also has the upside of looking awesome and having a really cool reloading animation.

Best gun in game mag size, accuracy, any attachment works 4 it, good damage run n gun it camp with it I don't give a craP just use it, just like the best non over powered gun in mw3 the p90

A great short range to mid range gun, enemy will have no chance to withstand it's rapid fire. Also have a very good magazine, it is a true golden monster

8 Peacekeeper

The peacekeeper is one of my favorite gun first gun to get gold and diamond so yea that's the best gun for me and it has great accuracy. And stability also a great aimer and I love it the scar-h is the second gun I got gold and diamond and so yea that's so wonderful than AN-94 sucks so bad I played with it in multiplayer and first person I saw I instantly died so yea the peacekeeper and scar-h

Ballista is better than the DSR, and the peacekeeper is the best gun in black ops 2. Also the LSAT, which is pretty underrated, should be somewhere in the top 5.

the perfect sub machine gun/assault rifle hybrid, can kill at range, low recoil, good irons, and good rate of fire

The only downside to this gun is that you have to buy it. Everything else is awesome and it is accurate with a good rate of damage. :D


I think for sure the BALLISTA this sniper was always the best and super easy to control and always got the job done so I'm BALLISTA all the way

Since of modern warfare it came an accurate sniper and in some Call of Duty's an counterpart that deals with more damage but less Accurance in mw1 it was the m40a3 and her counterpart the r700 in waw I don't play it in mp... In mw2 it gaves the beasty cheytac m200 intervention and in bo1 the l96a1, in mw3 the msr with counterpart the L118A in black ops 2 the BALLISTA and also the counterpart the DSR-50 and in ghosts the USR (an m24/m40 sniper rifle) and her counterpart the L115 also an L96 series weapon I really enjoy all of the snipers

Oh come on, the only good thing about this weapon is the quickscoping ability. Bolt action time and damage are crap

Should be number 3 in my opinion I only use this and a five seven and go ham my best kd is a 2.31 with these wepons people underestimate the balista you just put fmj and fast mag on and your set


Should be 1 because it absolutely destroys in zombies especially when paped and in multiplayer it has little to no recoil and with ex mags, laser, and fmg you practically have a laser gun

MTAR sucks in zombies, because of the load of recoil. but guess what, they patched it and renewed it on black ops 2. this gun has minimum recoil and a good iron sight with a medium fire rate. I would rather go with M8A1, but... this gun is better for taking out loads of hackers, cheaters and even masters. I recommend this gun in order to be a Call of Duty black ops 2 expert. *Note: Use either fore grip or quick draw grip. this will let you look around easier while aiming*

My Opinion is MTAR Assault Rifle best Weapon off all, with needs : Reflex Sight,Long Barrel, Extended Clips. No need Fore-grip.

The best beginner and allrounder weapon it can be very beastly and its an opinion to the type 25 twice are very good choose

The Contenders

11 Type 25

Currently trying to get this gun gold. In my opinion it is a very good gun probably the 2nd best AR besides the MTAR. Great at close range due to high ROF and is still amazing at long range due to low recoil. My only complaint about this gun is it's inconsistent time to kill, sometimes it's really fast other times you gotta put a whole clip into the enemy!

Beastly fire rate with consistent range. Kind of like having an AR range with SMG fire rate.

Perfect with Quickdraw & Stock

Type 25 is an amazing gun. it will out-damage most other guns, and great iron sights lets you free an attachment. beast ROF at long range.

I love this gun so much I have weapon prestige 1 level 6

12 Vector K10

This is the best gun in black ops 2. This gun has the complete package for a rusher and camper. Should be number 1. Good iron sights, which saves space for needed attachments like fmg and surpressors. Use these two attachments and you have the god weapon.

This gun is amazing the best gun because of its decent damage and very low recoil and it's fire rate makes the whole gun a lot better so it's got high fire rate with regular damage and low recoil

Best. Gun. In. The. Game. High fire rate, decent damage, good range and accuracy and a good reload speed. Consider it as the MPL from the original Black Ops.

Awesome gun, basically no recoil, fast fire rate and just a all round good gum. Got my first quad with this gun as well

13 SMR

I want to open by saying, this gun isn't a 'top 5' gun. But it is a pretty well rounded gun. I don't like how the stats read this gun in bo2; it's not accurate. It actually can have a moderately high fire rate, the reload rate is slightly faster than other AR weapons, and kills in two-three hits at long range with a silencer. (Two hits without) It does have a slightly higher recoil than the FAL, but the kick has a pattern. It's hipfire is a very tight spread with is a plus, and shoots through walls with impressive damage. So, it doesn't dominate obviously. But it is a very good gun and I believe many fans of automatic could adjust well to this gun. Of course, it's all opinion so there will always be those who disagree with me.

If this is not the best Assault Rifle in BO2 or even in the whole Call of Duty history, I don't know what to say anymore. This gun is insane. I've never seen a gun as good as this on any Call of Duty game ever.
First, let's look at the positives of it.
-It has incredible damage
-20 rounds- careful fire and aim, a very good clip size
-Range is very long, you can except 2-hit kill for a very long lange
Then, some negatives:
-Recoil can be a pain in the a**
-Poor in close range, though only two shots are needed.

My class: SMR w/ MMS, Stock and Quickdraw Handle
Primary gunfighter, Perk 2 Greed
Perk 1: Hardwired or Flak jacket
Perk 2: Scavenger and Toughness
Perk 3: None
A killer class.

Worst gun of the entire game. It's barely accurate, the bullets go everywhere except where you want them to go. Can't get a single kill with this gun. But, it's still better than the Springfield.

It is the has the highest DPS in the game, is extremely accurate, especially when coupled with it ACOG. There is no need for select fire, in fact, it's better iff without it. By far the best asdault rifle in the game in my opinion

14 M8A1

Definitely underrated on this list In my opinion the best assault rifle in bo2. With its 4 burst pretty high rate of fire and pretty good damage rating it is definitely a beast. If accurate 1 burst headshots and 2 burst body shots.

This is the best weapon, 3 bullets burst, absolute madness, how is this #15, should #1!
Pure world class, one of the most decorated gun in the game,. I even consider it's better than All of the guns in the game. By the way how is Remington There! M8A1 is the best weapon, in the world

If you know how to play and your accurate, this gun is a monster especially in long distance gun fights, it's able to kill an enemy in just one burst..definitely should be at least top 5

this really is the upgraded version of the m16, even comes with an extra bullet in each burst

15 S12

The S12 is the Second most powerful Shotgun on offer and is arguibly better than the M1216 in the game. This Shotgun is my go to Shotgun of choise because of it's faster follow up stots, fast reload, and incredible perfomance when I'm in CQ combat.

Pretty much the Remington but semi-auto. Beast at close range.


This gun has almost no recoil, great damage and range. I literaly use it as a sniper along with FMJ bullets and the infrared scope I totally wreck the other team and come on top in mine.

Best Call of Duty gun ever



17 Skorpion EVO

Damn this gun may have a fast fire rate but as we all know it is a bad ass gun as well as any other gun it has accuracy and reloading speed and it has decent damage and a hella good fire rate.

you know when your diarrhea is really runny? that's what this feels like, it just oozes bullets that drop fools real quick

Extremely awesome with grip, fixes most of the super ultra recoil.

I used to like the PDW-57 but now THIS GUN IS AMAZING ITS THE BEST THE BEST laugh out loud

18 MP7

This is the best gun I the game I think I don't even have to aim even when there across the map on Turbine or something

It the best gun ever this list is so stupid people just don't know how to use it correctly it number one

One of the strongest smg's due to it's great damage and accuracy and range. Definitely Underrated.

Very amazing take the less popular places of maps and youll find that most gunfights are won. About level with the MSMC

19 Combat Knife

I got my very first 75 kill streak with this... is so op. I mean like 10 swarms in one game? I'm shocked no one else is using this

The best weapon, I've got many streaks with this.

Hilariously, this weapon is deadly! I mean you can rape noobs with it as if you're the damn reaper of the game!

20 Ray Gun

It's cool but I heard the ray gun mark 2 is better

It's the best gun in Call of Duty bo2

21 Five Seven

If you have a rapid trigger finger you can beast with this weapon. I actually got 107-0 with this weapon.

This and a modded controller or a trigger finger is a beast put this with the fal

Current Combat Record for Deadliest weapon at 5,990 Kills
PS3 - bullridersix - TRY ME

22 Chicom CQB

This gun sucks first of all it sounds like a fart machine when you fire it it's a burst gun not that I have a problem with burst guns but when tried to use this gun I got owned by noobs that's very disappointing when everyone says it's a good gun and it also sucks in zombies when I first got the gun I thought it was a good gun but then I noticed it took 5 whole clips to kill 1 zombie

The Chicom CQB is an outstanding gun to use.
Go for a 'Stealthy Engineer/Hacker' build with Silencer and Reflex Sight, accompanied by Black Hats, Smoke Grenades, EMP grenades etc
Love this weapon!

You can put out a ton of lead if you have a fast trigger finger

I have used this forever an have prestige 1 lv 3 BEAST when you get select fire

23 MK48

Best gun for long and short range, high damage, very stable, works best with target finder.
Use FMJ with it and you will never lose a match.

First LMG I unlocked, I decided to start with the HAMR solely because of zombies, but I sswitched around Prestige 2. Great weapon for maps like Standoff where there are snipers behind walls. I found it best to add EDTech, Fore Grip, and FMJ.


this is basically (and kind of literally) the scar-h but you lose some mobility for a lot of extra rounds, damage, and range. make the trade

What a beast of an LMG, this bad boy got me my first real kill spree of 25 kills. Awesome damage, long distance shooting, good fire rate, minimal recoil with a stock.

It is clearly the best light machine gun that is in bo2 because it doesn't have to take long to relod

I am a real best while using this gun as well as using the DSR50


How is this not in the top 10?! This thing is an absolute MONSTER. It has super high damage and a great fire rate when full auto! It's better than the other assault rifles you get early in the game.

the fal, regardless of what cod game it is, is always a perfect gun, great to finally get it in full auto like real life

It has less recoil, and a slightly faster fire rate than the SMR; but not quite as lethal. So I consider the two to be a fairly even match.

Put select fire on this 2 hit kill weapon to cause mass death and destruction
