Best Team Fortress 2 Soldier Weapons

The Top Ten
1 The Black Box

Despite its 1 less clip, it can heal the soldier up to 20 health per rocket. A good all-rounder, for beginners and pros, when you wanna have power and survivability in one weapon. Plus it is good for pubs, since no Medics can only focus on you, and when healthkits are out of your reach. Even the design of the black box is cool and very battle-aesthetic. That's why it is my favorite soldier weapon.

To be honest, I don't know why people think that the -25% less clip size is really bad since it drastically increases Soldier's survivability because of the healing. Also, Black Box + Conch = Medic in a box.

The black box is recommended for mann vs machine. Earn up to 5000 credits and upgrade the clipsize, reload speed, projectile speed, firing speed and healing points and you can now destroy those robots.

Your typing wants to make me kill myself. And no one wants to hear your opinion on all the ten damn weapons.

2 Rocket Launcher

Really helpful in very confusing situations and also it can help out a lot. I really suggest this weapon strongly for soldier, it may be a stock weapon but that doesn't mean you can't do awesome stuff. So go try it out!

I prefer this weapon over the black box. I tend to spam the fire button once I see an enemy, thus the extra rocket I think is helpful.

Best wep ever! This makes the soldier a patriot, this is recommended for soldier users, dmg is balanced and splash dmg is great. Makes the the soldier the best class in the game, for some users this wep is a majority.

Really good reload time, Good damage. Awesome primary weapon. Ties with the Black Box

3 Direct Hit

Its give good bonuses to who trained accuracy to good level. Noobs should use RL or black box until they train enough their accuracy, Its harder to use, but when u handle DH, its give overall better effect. Its like sniper rifle and bazaar bargain.

Very good with good aim, and engineer's might rage-quit because of it destroying their sentry. Difficult to use, but OP.

The Direct Hit is really good because if you can aim it right, it does insane damage as it does more damage.

If you have good aim, you can pretty much wreck the entire enemy team.

4 Beggar's Bazooka

This weapon has gotta be on the top ten. A quick burst of 3 rockets can change the tide of battle easily. Be it to quickly kill a heavy from close distance, snipe the enemy medic and people that try to block it, severely damage a few of the enemies or simply for the lolz by spamming 3 rockets all over the place, it is great. And if you get the timing right, you can guarantee yourself 3 rockets ready to be spammed as soon as you enter the battlefield. How is this not a good weapon?

Actually you CAN get ammos from dispensers, you just need to take another weapon in your hands?

Awesome! Three projectile burst! Now you can be op and kill everyone!

This should be first. It is the best weapon that I can think of.

5 Concheror

Heals your team, heals you constantly and gives you a speed boost on use.

very good, even better in MvM

Heals Your Team As A Medic :P If You Try TO Heal Your Team Go As Medic So... Don't Try
But he's From The Ten Top. He's Still..

6 Market Gardener

It Very Good But Not Best Melee, No Random Critical Hit, Must Be Rocket Jump To Do A Full Critical Hit, That Must Be The Number 3 Only For Critical hit But he's 4 OF No Random Critical Hit.

7 Escape Plan

This is a great and very useful weapon in all escape situations.

Amazing for escapes after overextending.

It Very Good Try it Out :D When You Have A Low Health Your Fast As A Scout ;D But If You Have Full Health, No Speed Adds (Normal) It Like Equalizer But AS Damage, Escape Plan As Speed, (No Taunt Damage When Have Rocket Jumper)

8 Gunboats

The mobility is one of the most important aspects of his kit

Soldier is generally a slow class, so why not fix that by rocket jumping?
With the gunboats, you don't kill yourself every time you jump.

9 Air Strike

What are those menacing green things with a white trail behind that are heading for me and why do I feel like I should run?

It's not the most effective weapon soldier's arsenal (That would be stock or black box), but damn it is surely the most fun.

Air Strike Op seriously though combined with BASE Jumper, one of the most powerful and fun weapons in the game.

This is op with base jumper. You can shot 7 rockets after rocket jump.

10 The Original

Very good and feels good to use

Original is good and op

As good as stock RL and sounds more realistic,good for realistic players

The Newcomers

? Panic Attack
The Contenders
11 Liberty Launcher

It's a great rocket for combos with reserve shooter but it has low damage its great for rocket jumps.

Yes this is a good weapon because it makes you real royal my oppinion

Good weapon with fast rockets.


12 Buff Banner

Best soldier secondary. The meter takes a lot of damage to charge though. But that is not really a downside if you are a good soldier. And minicrits are awesome.

Eh still prefer the battalion's backup for sentry buster but still very good nonetheless

13 Equalizer

The equalizer is awesome because the closer to death
You are the easier it is to kill

Best melee weapon for soldier.

For Low Health, Damage Is High, For Full Health, No Damage Bonus, And The Equalizer Goods For Kill Enemy (Doing Taunt With Rocket Jumper You Will Not Taken Any Damage) So That Weapon Best Melee For Soldier And Escape Plan Too.

14 Rocket Jumper

With this weapon, the rocket is you

Very good with market gardener

No damage? Use a shotgun for once

15 Cow Mangler 5000

It vaporizes on one or two shots

This thing is a beast! Will almost instakill anything!

No amo reaload speed is good. Projectile speed decent

Its very slow always misses unless its an afk player

16 Reserve Shooter

15% faster weapon switch speed.
Mini-crits airborne targets for 3 seconds after switch.
Just hit the target with a rocket then Reserve him for a grave

17 B.A.S.E Jumper

It can slow down the speed. Then it can be no damage for rocket jump flowing down.

Combine with air strike and spam to your hearts content

Damn, this new one is the best

18 Battalion's Backup

It great but hard to use

Such a great soldier secondary builds up FROM DAMGAE TAKN and gives a resistance boost and immunity to crits great soldier secondary

19 Pain Train
20 Righteous Bison

Penetrate enemys and buildings (so you can easly deal with engineers that hide behind ther sentrys), do more damage to enemys that escaping from you, do more damage to enemys at longer distance than shotgun, has unlimite ammo, can set in fire arrows from huntsman, looks awesome and have awesome reolading animation. Much. Better. Than. Shotgun.

Ok 20 max damage on a soldier weapon.

Must Be That The Number 1 No Ammo Ends, Not Airblasted, Can Be Hit The Enemys By One Shot It Good But it Number 2 Because 20 Damage On Builds Enemy.

21 Mantreads

It Best Second Weapon For Soldier, Mantreads It Do A Damage On The Enemy That You Land Him, That Are Best Second Weapon EVER

22 Half-Zatoichi

He's Good But don't Battle That Weapon With Enemy Soldier Demoman That Have Half-Zatoichi It Will Instant Kill
So he's Good For Kill Enemy That Your Are Full Health
