2 Gravity Gun: Half Life 2

It's not just a weapon, it's tool designed to assist it's user in lifting and pushing objects that are too big and heavy to move with your bare-hands. And you can use that object as a projectile that can mow down enemies.

The design of this gun is really cool, the function of this gun is more than one, and at the end, you use this to kill every single you came across, Gravity-gun such a masterpiece weapon from masterpiece game

COOLEST GUN EVER! I mean come on, it makes pretty much ANYTHING ammo. Best thing ever: saw blades and explosive tanks... - Kazzong

3 BFG: Doom

Big gun

BFG = Big Friendly Giant, everyone knows that even if they haven't read the book. Dahl should have sued this upstart game.

Just the name. You can't beat that. Everyone knows what it is. - usmc650736

Best weapon EVER. The gravity gun can't take out entire waves of enemies in 1 blast! A

4 Portal Gun - Portal 2

Why kill your enemys when you can have them kill themselves?

Swords can only swing. Guns can only shoot. But the Portal Gun... has endless possibilities.

5 Thompson 1928: Mafia II

One of the most famous automatic firearms on the planet.

Bring this bad boy into battle and the enemy doesn't stand a chance. Link would get shot instantly. This killing machine is more lethal than that glorified kitchen knife Link carried

45 calibre, 50 round drum magazines and a rate of fire at 600 rounds per minute. So why the Hell is some small master-steak knife beating this big bad boy?

Uses 50 round drum mags, and can hold up to 150 rounds on reserve, there's plenty of ammo, and this gun is a true icon.

38 RYNO V: Ratchet And Clank Future

Mini Gun with Rockets shooting out of it with large ammo capacity and huge spread and range, firing in tune with 1812 Overture and shoots so fast that the ammo can drain within a few minutes. Should be at least around the BFG.
