Best Team Fortress 2 Weapons

Self explanatory. What weapon gets you the most kills, and helps you dominate the server.

The Top Ten

1 Your Eternal Reward

Hard to learn, but the learning has a HUGE benefit. No attack noise, disguise instantly as your victim, and their body goes away. The most stealthy weapon in the game.

Well, it is hard to believe that this weapon has been voted as the best. Everybody knows about spy's tactics and as soon as they see anyone coming they just fire and particurlarly if the player is a spy. So basically either you are disguise or not your gonna get killed. Secondly, any experimented players will notice the trick and no need to speak about the pyro who is a spy burner addict. So good luke with your so powerful eternal reward, it is not going to work anyway.

Experienced spies are rely more on stealth than disguises. When you think about that. This knife is perfect. It doesn't broadcast the kill to the other team, there's no dead body plus silent killer. If there's anything even close to this it's the stock or big earner for experienced spies.

One thing! if you are new you can easily backstab engi and be safe from sentry

2 The Golden Frying Pan

Enemies will literally stand in front of you so they can get a freeze cam shot of someone with a golden pan...

Literally the best weapon in this game it's a solid gold frying pan what's not to love

With this, people will BEG for you to kill them

Just destruction the people have no choice but to bow down to you!

3 Rescue Ranger

This weapon was introduced in the weapon update and changed how engineer was played. Sure it may not get kills directly, but it keeps your sentry alive and lets you teleport it away if things get nasty.

And we all know that sentries get lots of kills.

An awesome weapon for skillful engineers. As it's name implies it will save your sentry countless times if properly used. And it looks cool too

This has saved my life so many times. Taking your sentry out of combat at the last second or giving it that extra bit of health can keep you in the fight. The Engineer is ten times easier to play with the Ranger.

As an engie main with over 100 hours on the class, I can tell you that the Rescue Ranger is the gift from every engie's wet dreams - hiphopgod

4 Scattergun

Out of all the Scout Primaries, this one has the biggest clip. It has a perfect fire rate, giving you just enough time to aim another shot. The damage at point-blank range is able to 2-shot anything that isn't a Heavy. Extra Ammo and clip size allow the Scout to stay in combat for longer than any other weapon he can wield. The perfect gun for the
Scout.

This is definitely tying as Scout's best Combat Primary. Basically, anything that operates similarly to this, ie The Back Scatter and Baby Face's Blaster are about equal, and also the Soda Popper, which operates differently, but has a faster reload speed to make up for the Force-A-Nature's biggest weakness, and also has Hype.

Meanwhile, the Force-A-Nature has more utility than some of these options but is overall worse at combat.

Finally, the Shortstop is a weapon with huge potential, but it is so hard to aim, that most people won't be able to use it effectively. - JargoNautilus

The Scattergun. Deals 100 damage at melee range, and has 6 shots. You have the potential to kill a heavy in less than 2 seconds. It has a fast reload with a nice ammo reserve with the biggest clip of the scatterguns. The spread is also a bit small for deadlier meat shots.
The best stock out there, only rivaled by the minigun, knife, rocket launcher, grenade launcher, and maybe the sniper rifle. The scattergun is the least situational out of that whole collection

It sucks

5 Ubersaw

Pair up with a friend and become a medi chain. Heal each other and use Ubersaw to get Uber, and tell friend deploy Uber when full and start sawing the entire enemy team. Hit four times and deploy uber on friend, friend uses Ubersaw and slices up enemies, getting Uber, repeat until the whole enemy team is rage quitting. Annoying and OP

Its makes the chain medic so deadly... And annoying!

This is the best item. If it wasn't I wouldn't have said it. This one is the best.

With the saw being able to do a large amount of damage and being able to fill your uber is very helpful and good in a combat situation and that one heavy that spams medic finally being able to succeed his dreams

6 Spy-cicle

In my opinion, straight upgrade from the Knife.
And you say "But I can't backstab people if the knife melts! "
I answer: You probably won't be backstabbing people while in fire...
Serious, better than YER.

This weapon is better than the Stock Knife, however, most people will hate you for using it. Essentially a fire retardant suit embedded into your Knife, the only downsides are losing the knife in fire, and leaving ice-statues everywhere. Neither of these two are even marginally huge. The upside is a lot of fire/afterburn immunity upon being struck by fire while the weapon is deployed, which will melt it and allow you to escape. This means that the Spy has two counters (Dead Ringer) to his main hard-counter, one of which comes at little cost other than to your reputation. - JargoNautilus

It had no drawbacks, other than it getting burnt by fire. But, if used in conjunction with the dead ringer, it can create a good false death against a pyro and giving you time to escape. Very good weapon.

Is it ironic you craft this better, much more important knife from a crappy, useless knife known as YER?
Yeah, that knife is bad. They can nullify your disguise in a matter of seconds. The spycicle is so much better against pyros, and silent backstabs are the best... - mattstat716

7 Air Strike

Good it looks awesome and when rocket jumping it is amazingly fast. Great pair with the B.A.S.E jumper and one of the best the gun it self looks cool and the rockets look cool. ONE OF THE BEST ROCKET LAUNCHERS EVER

The Best.

Gun Mettle just made this weapon HELL. This is so simple. Just use with BASE and you can rain hell upon your enemies.

Warning: Only use when necessary. Use within 12 months after purchase as it will expire/nerf. Do not use on Cp_dustbowl. Treatment works the best on payload maps like Upward. BASE Jumper is also needed for the treatment (sold separately).

This gun is for more experienced players, on kill you get more ammo up to the max of 8. You can rocket jump into the air, then with the parachute rain down hell.

Use it with the base jumper so that when your in the air it will shoot really fast - Extraspicygamer

V 15 Comments
8 Atomizer

Great when paired with the winger and soda popper for about 600 jumps

You can triple-jump with it, but the third jump drains ten health.

Sacrificing strength and health for mobility

It's the best for mobility

9 Loose Cannon

Bomb Fuse Charge Meter: You can make the cannonball explode faster by holding down m1 before you shoot the cannonball. If you charge for too long, you become a suicide bomber (this is good, this is good! ).

Very High Push Force (better than the Iron Bomber overall)

20% more projectile speed. (better than the Loch-n-Load overall)

Knockback is applied on the direct hits, which deal only 50 damage to enemies with no splash, but which also deal ZERO self-damage. After this, the cannonball explodes, dealing 60 damage to enemies normally, but dealing 35% more damage than that if the explosion is within 0.5 seconds of the direct hit, which causes light classed to die instantly. (so basically, it deals more damage if you have skill, and this thing is called a Double Donk by the way)

Has 1 second fuse time (this is good and bad)

Can easily be used to deal self-damage and to grenade jump.

Overall: Highly useful for building Ubercharges faster and for ...more - JargoNautilus

The loose Cannon should be on a list of OP weapons, if you can get the charge time and the aim down you can one shot ANY thing including a heavy, a hit with the cannon ball and an explosion right after doing around 250-300 damage

Great knock back and Range

10 The Black Box

Gives you 15 out of 200 per hit, and its as strong as the ordinary rocket launcher. If you ask me, -25% ammo isn't much of a drawback for this awesome thing.

The 2nd most powerful rocket launcher (besides stock) only -1 ammo? Who cares! There is a chance of killing the heavy with 3 rockets if you are really close to him

Very powerful, healing every time you get a hit is great. This allows you to win fights against other soldiers because you can heal to outlast them.

I like this plantation.

The Contenders

11 Machina

I think that its terrible. Your unlikely to hit more than one person per shot plus you can't shot while not zoomed in so you have to use a smg. Also the tracer rounds just let's everyone know your sniping them and then just then then someone blows to bits with the loch n load.

It can shoot through two people it shot through scout and engineer the demoman and heavy it took one shot to destroy engineer's machine and also one shot to kill engineer

Sniper's most powerful primary weapon. Has the ability to penetrate through multiple enemies. Downsides are that when fired, it leaves a bright team-colored trail, and it cannot fire unless it's in scope mode.

The machina is a no skill weapon. A fully charged body shot is a inst kill. anyone who uses it is a free to play - Extraspicygamer

V 42 Comments
12 Flare Gun

It's a master of balance but is also an amazingly good weapon for all Pyro playstyles.

Two great hits...DED. Just saying it's just amazing it's a good gun two hits is all you need

Does heaps of damage to burning player. can kill most classes with one shot

The scorch shot is better. the taunt kill is ranged, its also does area damage so u don't have to hit your target, u can hit something next to them and thire still on fire - Extraspicygamer

V 5 Comments
13 Sandvich

A generally nice item, good healing on the heavy, and can be used to heal teammates. Deserves to be higher.

Its like carrying your own health pack witch holds 399 health (unless you have any health extending items) and you can heal the medic best part? Its free with a milestone

Please go watch Meet the Sandvich to see how good it is and what the heavy goes through after eating it around the other team - Pastakirby7

It's a bloody portable med kit

14 L'Etranger

It's a nice weapon which give longer cloak

More cloak time - it can save your life

is cool

L'Etranger is great with stock Invis Watch, it allows for longer cloak time, as well as gaining some cloak back from shots. The 20% damage penalty doesn't quite matter, as you're going to use it only to
A) Gain some cloak back
B) Finish off weakened enemies.

15 Beggar's Bazooka

Some may say that it has one less rocket and that makes it bad. Some say it has spread and that makes it bad. But there are some catches with this. With the BB equipped, you can be the pro rocket jumper everybody calls a hacker because only scouts should be able to double jump. You can overload your BB to get an extra jump. And before someone says the damage output can't match the Direct Hit, the Beggar's Bazooka's increased firing speed can allow it to dish out more damage in a single uber. In Mann Versus Machine being able to deal roughly 10k damage with a single uber canteen makes this weapon seem overpowered. It wasn't supposed to be overpowered, and it isn't unless the user is skilled enough. Fair, but still an amazing weapon.

This weapon is awesome. You can load up to three rockets and rain death on enemies. You cannot collect ammo from dispensers but you can pick up weapons of enemies you have exploded into pieces

In X10 you can have 30 rockets and you can fly. I mean like, who does not want to fly

I main this weapon, and trust me, it mows down single targets, and loading up 3 rockets is faster then reloading 2 rockets with a normal rocket launcher, and best of all, random crits!

16 Soda Popper

The Soda Popper is a very effective weapon when it comes to attacking strong targets. After about 12-15 seconds of consistent running, the hype meter will be fully filled and you will be able to unleash a barrage of mini crits! Plus, it has faster reloading! (Not that it changes the game very much).

Its basically a Force-a-Nature, but with a major addition: Simply running will give you minicrits. Tell me that isn't awesome.

Faster reloading and rate of fire! You can use hype to fly really high in the air! I also love how you can do using it with the atomizer flying up in the air and then crash down and wack someone with the bat!

Come on,you can dodge rockedays with this thing

17 Tomislav

A great weapon that allows you to counter surprise or sudden attacks with ease, and as long as you can aim well, the slower firing speed is practically nothing, meaning you can charge into battle with much more leniency towards how you go about.

This weapon is the best at suppressing enemy's and it has a slower fire rate but it can last longer.

Quick charge up. Hide in corners and ambush enemies! Best minigun

This weapon seems more accurate than the other mini guns. Great gun for heavy mains like myself.

V 10 Comments
18 Stickybomb Launcher

One of the more damaging weapons of the game. A bit hard to use, but very strong destructive power, and possibility to activate your bombs. Useful for direct encounters at mid range, ambush, and more.

Just lost the second to last point, enemy team is about to charge the last one and only you are guarding the point. What do you do? Trap the path you retreated down and wait for those fools to chase you and BAM! Dead team

Extremely powerful. You can set up sticky traps on points to save your team, and on walls to protect yourself. High damage and a lot of ammo, Crits do 200-300 damage! Why wouldn't you use this beast of a weapon.

This weapon is pretty op. Try using the quickiebomb launcher, scottish ressistance or the stalk. All are good - Extraspicygamer

19 Natascha

Has an 100% chance of slowing the enemy down. Great for countering classes from the fast scout, to the slower heavies. Scout will be slowed to a soldier-like speed and soldier would be slowed to heavies. Heavies slowed to brass beast-type slowness. Awesome weapons for picking off fast and slow moving targets.

Natasha is heavy's ex girlfriend lol

This gun mows down the enmies like nothing. It pushes them back so they can't fight back, what mired do you need in a minigun

It has a very good thing to use against scouts and pyros. Also it has very minor downsides I really don't notice it and when you do it is very minor. It also is perfect when crosing sniper lines and surviving with your pocket medic with the damage reduction and though it is useless against sentries compared to the rest. The best minigun for floaty trodiers

20 The Quick-Fix

Very underrated. Heal teammates 40% faster, get ubercharge 25% faster, and you go the speed of the person you're healing. HOW IS THIS NOT THE BEST MEDIGUN?

With the faster heal rate It is great pub matching and maybe some other things but when you go off a cliff with your "pocket" it is not the greatest

Really good if you have friends to play you can reach the front line faster than a scout, and it heals super fast, who needs all the over-heal if you are healed do fast

The quick fix is the best medigun at healing which is amazing gains ubers very fast and is powerful in the right hands but stock has been on every medics mind

21 Sandman

This is a great weapon as you are able to stun an enemy which I've found useful no matter what map or objective.

You can stun your enemy ( it also slow them down) and you can have an easier kill

With a sandman you could make anyone to make a BONK! And critical hit.

I would way that the sandman has potential but for people who are good at the game and lossing 15 health and that bad when replaced with a ball that deals about 45 dmg and stun 8^0

22 Blutsauger

The name of the weapon is written in German. the English name for it is called the blood sucker

Mine, and many more's, combat weapon of choice is great against pros while backpedaling!

Has anyone heard of the combat medic if so use this weapon for him

Very good as long as you can aim.

23 Force-A-Nature

Incredibly powerful, actually allows you to kill things as a Scout. People argue that you can do that with the Scattergun, but frankly that doesn't do enough damage to make up for the low health of a scout. It's extremely satisfying to shoot someone with this, and very effective in games like Mannpower where you can just hook someone in and blast them away. On the downside, people will hate you for using this, but there's a reason for that. The reload is quick enough, and the high knockback gives you time to reload after use. Sure, you get a bit cheated with the ammo thing where if you only shoot the once it still takes 2 ammo to reload, but that doesn't matter too much, because you're probably gonna find an ammo pack or die before you can go through 32 rounds.

Great for burst damage and awesome against pyros. Round the corner and there's a pyro? BOOM! He's now in orbit with as much as 150 damage done in a second. Heavy breaking the front lines? Blast him all the way back to spawn. And of course, FaN jumps.

The Force-A-Nature is a really good weapon, and I will tell you why it has incredible knock back when you shot the enemy and that's really helpful when your trying to get away and your about to die. It also has faster firing witch helps when your rushing to the enemy base for the intelligence.

Sucks a lot. Scouts need to aim amd the knockbacl makes your aim crap and u will die easily. Good for messing around but in a real battle stock is best

24 Crusader's Crossbow

If your target does not die they run around with a weird arrow sticking out of their bodies

The ultimate weapon for Degroot Keep. When you hit a teammate with it they gain health and the arrows are pretty powerful. And to the people that are mad about it not getting headshots, THE MEDIC IS NOT A COMBAT CLASS. An absolute must for a pro medic.

Can deal damage to opponents and heal your teammates - Lord28

It's essentially a piss gun that can insta kill when fully charged. It takes away headshot but who cares it's a piss rifle. - jayceaw

Jarite. SO MUCH JARITE

26 Eyelander

All you need to do is get 2 kills with it and the health you lost is back you are faster and if you get 5 kills you have tons of health and you are very fast, plus it looks cool, and that's always a plus.

A strong drawback at first, but few things stand in the way of a Demoknight with the Eyelander loaded with 4 heads or more. Great for all modes, and is really rewarding should you play defense with no shield and you manage to get 3-4 heads.

It is my favourite weapon

When I got I thought it sucked but N O it's boss

27 Cozy Camper

Best secondary for sniper. Since the buff in I think it was the gun mettle update (don't quote me on this), or maybe it was the tough break update. Fairly certain it was the tough break update. Anyways, now because of the buff, you can be sniper in some very sneaky positions, even if there's not a health pack in sight. Before the buff, it was crap, but now it's the best. Now valve just needs to make a melee that regenerates ammo

Stock Stock Stock

I do agree that razor back is better only because the cozy camper doesn't come in strange or spec ks.

28 Degreaser

When used with the axtinguisher it is superior to all other flamethrowers. However with that combo you should probably use some kind of shot gun to take down people in the water.

Fast weapon switch means lots of kills with the axetinguisher, pretty much insta-kills. Despite its minus damage it is still a fantastic weapon.

Great for combo's but you need the right items for this weapon to truly kick ass.

With combination with Flare Gun- Awfully difficult to aim, and to fight against
With combination with Reserve Shooter- R.I.P

This plus brass beast heavy means that someone gets a control point

33 Neon Annihilator

It's so fun to use when your in a water based map, grab a friend and pair it with a sniper or mad milk and run around getting crits. It crits whenever a player is wet through water, jarate, or mad milk

34 Scottish Resistance

If you intelligently set up traps to cover an area or your hide, you can get quite the kill streak with this...

It's the ultimate area denial defense weapon. Sadly the downside means no air shots.

How is this not in the top ten? This fantastic weapon lets you have a huge amount of stickys be out at once, you can see your stickys through walls, you have the option to detonate them one at a time, and with all that, only ONE tiny little downside. - Chubbymonkey29

It's so over powered they banned it from all competitive leagues.

It does more damage per clip but you don't need the whole clip to kill most enemies. Overall it's tied with the stock.

OK first of ALL! It has 15- damage! Who cares! Hoestly, who cares!, 2+ ammo than the level 1 shotgun, making the Family business have 8 Rounds, good for taking down soldiers, and other classes

37 Market Gardener

When you get good with this, you are a pro

Can do wonders with base jumper and market gardener. Although it takes a lot of practice to use it well.

If used correctly, this weapon can be EXTREMELY destructive.

I'm not a fan, I just love the crits

IT IS THE SUPERIOR SHIELD. The splendid screen can be better with ali baba's wee booties due to the fact that it has higher damage impact and can deal shield bash damage at any range. But that means you can't use a g launcher. It's overall tied if not better than the splendid screen for that reason.

Makes the wee booties useless

Full turn control makes it great for serpinting out of the way of snipers plus charge kills refill your charge meter so you can keep the charge train going.

You can annihilate enemies with this. You can easily take out a heavy after his little medical friend is stuck to the wall with an arrow through his head! It is a satisfying weapon.

41 Sniper Rifle

Of course we need the Sniper Rifle. This weapon basically defines the Sniper class, and it does everything a sniper rifle should do. It pulls of headshots, it has a long zoom, and you can wipe out people without them knowing. A classic.

Need I really justify why this is the best. It has no downsides. The only thing better is the AWper Hand just because it's an awesome reskin.

The sniper rifle it's good to have

Come on. 150 Damage in 2 Seconds. Insta Kills most classes. In competitive 9v9 Highlander, this weapon is easily the top fragging. Just look at max's 9 Man takedown. Boom Boom Boom. Entire Enemy team dead in less than a minute.

43 Baby Face's Blaster

Yes, you do start off painfully slow but you still are fast enough to outrun most classes. Also, your payment for sacrificing your speed is a meter. Fill it up and you go running around at the speed of sound like the Flash or Sonic The Hedgehog. "BUT YOU CAN'T JUMP! " Well, you can. Only double jumps lower the meter and even then double jumping only lowers it by a quarter. Also, even a Scout should restrain from jumping all over the place. - Ultron123

Maybe it does a little less damage, maybe it has a little less bullets, but you run twice as fast if you charge it. Awesome.

You lose boost if you air jump. Or if you take damage. So what? You get it back easily, and you're supposed to be avoiding damage as a scout. I mean... He has 125 health...

I really hope it's as good as you say, I wanna try it out.

Best weapon ever, consistent damage, accessible to half the classes, looks nice, good clip, and just fun to use overall.

This is probably the best soldier secondary, tied as the best for the Pyro with the flare gun, and probably the best engineer primary, my opinion. I didn't mention the heavy, because, who takes off the sandvich, honestly

Kills most classes easily

Is good please liek

As a spy, you won't be using the revolver too much, so once you get that backstab, you can 1 shot someone!

Tell your friend 2 drink bonk, backstab him 20 times and you have 20 shots with 102 dmg and cool gun

This is awesome! Guaranteed crits for backstabs and saps... And a modest 15% damage reduction.

50 Grenade Launcher

I'm gonna get crap for this, but after using the iron bomber for so long, I just can't go back. It is a good weapon, I'm not saying that its not, the iron bomber is just better mobility wise, its easier for me to aim, and the barrels match the grenade number, its just an all around improvement. So while the grenade launcher is great, and deserves its spot, I just think the iron bomber deserves a little more love.

Just a perfectly balanced and great weapon.

A skilled Demoman with this weapon can wreak offensive and defensive havoc. Yes, the sticky launcher has higher DPS, but the Grenade Launcher needs little preparation.

Really beast if you fully upgrade it in mvm
