Top Ten Call of Duty: Black Ops Weapons

bigblackdragon
Which is THE best weapon in COD:Black ops in your opinion? These 10 weapons are my top 10, if you think there is a gun missing just add it and vote for it.

The Top Ten

1 Galil

Super fun and easy to unlock early on, with a high amount of customization options.

Great gun easy to get kills and is a overall winner. Plus you don't have to be a high level to unlock it and then buy it. My favourite attachment is suppressor so with suppressor it 10 out of 10. Thank you treyarc for this amazing gun!


Either put a silencer or extended mags and you have got the best gun in the game without question.

I played the Famas for a while. The only problem was that it got old, real quick. And then I picked up the Galil and let out a sigh of relief. This. This was my gun.

the famas is my favorite weapon even though I suck and sometimes I own like earlier I went 200 and 55 playing headquarters

It over all the best asult and close up range wepon there is

This is a great gun give it to a starter and they will do great it should be #1 its great with red camo and a red dot site use it!

3 Commando

Well commando should be first I don't know why the ak74u is first it sucks anyway the commando is good at long range and medium and attachment red dot sight no freaken surpressor or acog with scanvenger pro and sleight of hand pro and second chance pro.

sick gun

I just play 100x better with this gun it has no recoil at all! and just does what you want

the best

4 AK 47

great! gotta know how to use it but I guess that the same thing with every gun in black ops

nice

My favourite gun, with suppressor or grenade launcher.

I love this gun because it is so powerful. All it needs is extended mags and maybe a silencer, it takes a while to get used to but once you get the hang of it is a beast. Best AK47 on any Call of Duty, don't like it on MW3 because there's too much recoil and looks too big. Its not bad on Call of Duty 4 though.

5 AK 74U

Great gun end of.

Its the best gun! Best with grip or rapid fire or suppressor or dual mag

This gun is so good. I hated this gun in the beginning, but after that I cried. I was first and I had 32 kills with this gun. Fantastic

Only been playing black ops for a few days and read a few reviews on the best gun. Just unlocked the ak74u and it seems it s unstoppable, I play it with suppressor and longer magazines and works well. (ghost). But as I'm only on level 18 I'm yet to unlock a lot of other weapons. But can't go wrong with this choice.

6 AUG

The AUG is my personal favorite. It's great for rushing and great at long range. Love this gun

MILF! 2nd highest damage per second as proven in Call of Duty Wiki (Highest being the M60)Little recoil mixed with its awesome fire rate and high damage makes it the best gun there. Excellent a firing in burst for long range and shred 'em to pieces with a dropshot at close range! Combine with Sleight of hand pro and say hello to a 2.18 k/d ratio like mine!

AUG > Famas

I love the AUG's fast fire rate, and great range. Not the best gun for rushing, but great at medium to long range. The AUG is by far my gun of choice.

7 Stoner 63

I think it has a balance where it has low speed for the player but high damage output. If players have 100 health and you do a body shot it’s anywhere from 3 to 5 shots that is 33 damage at most and 20 at very least on body shots. It does 50 to 33 damage per bullet on a headshot. It is a great overall weapon that makes you feel insane when you fire it and it has low recoil.

Despite the slow movement speed and reload of this weapon, I believe the stoner63 is probably the best weapon in the game for a passive player or someone who is not rushing all game long. The high fire rate and damage gives this weapon a very quick kill at all ranges and I would recommend the red dot sight for pinpoint accuracy as I personally don't like the iron sights.

BEST gun. You can look at all of the stats out of all of the guns and you will find that this one is the best. Although it might not be the best at close range, it destroys at mid range, and if you put the thermal scope on it, it turns into a fully automatic sniper rifle. USE THIS GUN!

The stoner only is a bit heavy but that's fixed with lightweight. Its advantage is that its damage over long distances is the same as its damage at close.
I'm not sure if the iron sight is good enough.

8 M60

If you use sleight of hand you can reload faster and besides that this gun is really epic it has 100 bullets per mag and has grat firepower and accuracy I got like 39 kills with this on multiplayer

The m60 is a great gun. Screw sleight of hand. The capacity is very large at 100 bullets. The gun is also the strongest automatic weapon killing in just 2 shots within medium range. Try using flak jacket with warlord and tactical mask. You can make your enemies cry.

I love this gun in Black Ops. It is, above all else, just plain fun to use. Extended mags make it even better, no need to reload.

Slow reload, but why would you ever have to reload with 100 shots! Just an all around great gun! Just. 3 shots and your target is dead. Once unlocked use this. If you need to get SOH, but it is still great without it

9 Ray Gun

The raygun... Takes me back in world at war -deep sigh- best weapon till round 24... The upgraded takes 2 shots in round 24! I hate this gun! Jk jk it just have hard aiming ability and reloading is too slow plus 1 shot takes 5.2 MICRO! Seconds NOT SECONDS! I must say this is a premium weapon the best part is it's good weapon for second in hand if you know what I mean... Although I vote m16 better!

This gun is one shot kill. It can shoot from long range and has a lot of ammo. The best part though is that if you need reviving in zombies it counts as an pistol so you get to keep using it.

I love the gun it can sometimes can hit the player but it is a good gun

The ray gun is good when you are in a low round like from 7-17 so it is a pretty good gun

10 M16

This gun has great range and damage. There's no need to waste your money on anything else. Plus with the hardened perk and grenade launcher you'll be force of nature.

M16 is the best gun the story about m16: m16 is a 50 years gun(it means golden jubilee) and it is originally use in the marines in the Vietnam war both sides were using m16 well.. Vietcong were using ak47 (which is second place) and even in the Iraqi and afghan war the us army were using m16 were ever you go you will see m16 and now this gun is 75 years in business

- -reaper-

Just got dogs its amazing just add a red dot or grenade launcher with hardline and your good to go

Highly accurate! And easy to shoot at distance when your far away from an enemy. The gun is equal at everything and I always use it, so that's why I choose it, Okay.

The Contenders

11 Thundergun

An infinite damage wonder weapon, with a respectable amount of ammo. Criminally underrated in this list. The Thundergun's only weakness is the fact that it can't spawn drops.

Great Wonder weapon but not multiplayer accessible so I see the reason why it's this far down the list.

The thunder gun is so good why vote it 13 place if it's so good it blows like a whole round of zombies or is it not a rating I'm just saying it's so awesome

Are you people kidding me? T-H-U-N-D-E-R G-U-N is #33 out of 34, wow I bet you if this was in multiplayer it would have been EPIC.

Rapid fire and steady aim pro is killer. You can get easy kills up to medium range while hip firing with this gun. Not to mention ADS is still good. Has decent recoil without rapid fire and solid iron sights so you could also throw extended mags and have sleight of hand pro with very fast reload, quick aiming, and very fast movement speed when paired with lightweight. This gun is much more versatile than people give it credit for, and it's a starter gun!

This was first my favorite gun, but after I got the AK74U this baby only got on second place. It is still one of my favorite smg's. Good firing rate, good damage and just an overall good performance. - bigblackdragon

Put Rapid Fire on this bad boy and spray! No Steady Aim needed! Just had a 200-19 Domination game using this gun!

Horrible accuracy horrible reload speed horrible ammo capacity and horrible way too fast fire rate plus the worst iron sights ever they're too damn big no wonder it's the default smg unlocked this gun just straight up sucks use the pm63 instead - stoner69

Great gun for close and lost range

I think it's the best because it's powerful and can get the scope that the snipers have (sorry I don't know the name of the scope) you just have to aim the head and his dead

Yes Famas and Galil are incredible weapons however if you know how to use this gun you can do so well with it, the only problem is the lack of attachments and late unlock of this gun

Amazing on long range and has smg hipfire with hardened pro hardly any flinch so this gun is amazing.

14 L96A1

My first quad was with this, now even though I don't play Black Ops I, I still love this gun.

Best sniper in the game use it with variable or infrared and it's a one shot kill above the waist only annoying when their using second chance but in zombies the druganov is better since its semi auto over bolt action. - stoner69

This gun is boss! Even though it is bolt action it is still awesome!

Good gun for 720 no scopes I've god like 8

15 MPL

Beast gun, very accurate, low recoil, and good clip size. Must pair with rapid fire. Slight of hand or steady aim is a must, depending on your play style. Iron sight is the only downfall

The only downside of the MPL is that is has disgusting iron sights. If it is paired with rapid fire, it's hip fire can be deadlier than the AK74u's one. It is also good in ADS even with it's bad irons. It also has a healthy 32 bullet magazine, so it naturally fits Rapid Fire. Overall, this along with the PM63 are my favourite guns.

By far the best smg in the game. Low recoil, good accuracy, high rate of fire and decent range. You don need any other smg besides this.

Nice 4 dropshots, headshots and close range, with rapid fire or grip with SOH, lightweight and hacker. Use a semtex, flashbang and jammer

16 Python

Give a python a speed reloader with sleight of hand pro and you will kill all enemies before they know your even there as long as you keep moving and don't camp otherwise your screwed

Dual Python is like a shotgun up close, extremely strong but poor accuracy and range which is exactly like a shotgun. If you feel like there should be a secondary shotgun pick dual python.

Put on a acog and on hardcore you're a sniper.

17 Olympia

Best gun ever I got 92 kill with this gun LOL

Best gun in short range

1 shot one kill at short, 2-3 shots at medium.

-No attachment

The only cons of this gun are its capacity and reloading speed. It destroys at close range. Maybe pair it with sleight of hand to push away the problems of slow reloading and a 2 bullet capacity.

I need the black ops three guns on ps4 I need the Olympia

18 Dragon's Breath

Come on people it shoots a bullets that on fire blow there feet of

This would be an awesome pap upgrade for zombies and a good attachment in multiplayer - stoner69

It's cool and should be given on 4th rank after commando.

Anything that kills with fire is cool

19 Crossbow

When pack a punched it draws the zombies away from you and to the explosive tip

Add camo and attachments and bang best gun ever

20 Enfield

gun for the english man in side you good at all levels good if you a new to black ops had to be 10 due to mag size

also known as the SA80, this gun is the best all rounder in the game should be at least 6

This gun may not be the strongest or most effective, but it sure is a fun weapon to use.

Best gun ever when I first unlocked it I killed about 30 people so 5 out of 5

21 Stakeout

this shot gun is a pump action an can blow holes in anything good on multiplayer even better on zombies

1 shot kill and good for range, can it get any better

Manly gun. Wiht steady aim pro. Can point the gun at someone and still kill them with a single shot! Marathon pro is good too, so you can get near the target fast

This shot gun is the bomb in my opinion I am that's shot guns master and it is good with a python as well I think that it is 1 right to the olimpia

22 Ballistic Knife

Its very good because I had 11 killstreak with it on jungle, when I was only knifing

I am really good against my really good cousin but I beat him badly

Very good for rushing classes

It can kill with only one shot and you can recover the blade to use it again

23 SPAS 12

I played BO1 for 35 online days and this way by far my favourite weapon. Unstoppable with steady aim, ghost and hacker.

The best shotgun semi-automatic high damage and great for close quarter

Best shotgun
Many cool camos
Best with a silencer

24 Spectre

The spectre is crazy good with the rapid fire attachment and scavenger I say it should easily be number 7

similar too the MPL just a little worst combat performance in my opinion. - bigblackdragon

tiger camo, rapid fire and this gun mercs all

Amazing with Silencer

25 PPSh-41

Best weapon in Call of Duty history it's a buzzsaw! - stoner69

This should be #1

Ppsh 41 has most speed and accuaracy inthe game

26 Monkey Bomb

You get time to run from zombies but don't affect hounds. You get it from mystery box only.

27 Skorpion

Dual wield scorpions own almost any person that crosses your path close range. Easily one of the strongest up close and personal weapons. If you put steady aim on with this class, it can kill medium to long range. I have personally made it a goal to have my combat record show this as my favorite gun, and achieved it... Over 13000 kills with it. I play as a rusher, and using the dual wield class on maps like firing range, summit, or nuketown I can get dogs on a regular basis. Amazing weapon.. How often do you see it as a favorite weapon? Got some bragging rights.

Great for small distant fights. I recommend it with dual wield. The problem is that it will suck for any fight over 15-20 yards. - yakorde

Should be in the top 5. Amazing gun with Dual Wield and Grip

It's good but poor due to range

small weapon does serious damage at close range

29 Wunderwaffe

It is the best wonder weapon

Wunderwaffe in BO? You suck?

There is no wander waffle in Call of Duty bo

Iv'e Seen It On The Game. Multiplayer In Fact Zombies KIA Something Something Map

30 Winter's Howl

This gun is beast mode it's the best like in zombies would you rather have famas or Gali

In zombies it's fun to freeze them zombies!
laugh out loud

This gun isn't even good���"

31 FN FAL

Semi auto is awesome

Good gun to pair with second chance as your already used to repeatedly pulling the trigger rather than holding it, it also has excellent damage with 1 shot kill in hardcore, the sights are attractive as well (for me anyway).

Good single shot for long distance

Get red dot sight on this and you'll own a lot of people :)
I really like this gun and I hope other people also like it too

32 Kiparis

This Gun is simply great with Extended mag and Grip! That combo and because of the really good range (8 bars) It can easily be named as one of the best smg's in the game!

really fast fire rate but weak

This is the worst smg
Why is it on here

With rapid fire and grip, I kid u not this fun will tear anybody apart, even better then the AK74U! 2 drawbacks are 1) Runs out of ammo to fast so youll have to try and pic up a second gun from a dead body and rely on the fully auto pistol as your secondary. 2) if u miss your target your dead.

33 STG-44

It's like a early AK. IT SHOULD BE LOVED LIKE A CHILD!

34 Calamity
35 Claymore

Very good equipment in black ops if your in a hiding place you should place it!

36 Tomahawk

Some amazing stuff, instant kill and faster throw than aim with your weapon, but some experience is needed.

Amazing kills with this

37 China Lake

Awesome but should have more bullets

38 PM63

Its such a good gun if you like to light run, aim fast and a have a low recoil rapid fire deadly damage gun.

This is one good gun that people use loads of people love this gun - ash34cool

How is this gun not on the list!

its quick to unlock
low recoil
easy-to-use iron sights
VERY rapid fire
looks cool and great emblem position
and it DOMINATES with scavenger

and if that don't convince you look at this.

pm63 famas
k/d 5.15 k/d 2.00

YOU NEED TO TRY THIS GUN!

39 Sten

There is no sten...

This thing got me to level 50! it does more damage then the ak74u and you can dual wield it! - CODcaker45

40 Semtex

Amazing grenade. Just throw it randomly and your bound to get a kill! Especially on small maps like Nuketown. It also sticks to your enemy.

It is so good for instant kills just equip with ninja pro and I just love them

41 Frag

OHKO, if you trow this boy literally below their feet, plus if you lucky, you can get few guys die together

42 M72 LAW
43 RPG

Amazing gernade launcher hope they put it in Call of Duty ghosts with a map pack or BO2 with a map pack

44 RPK

Has good clip it shoots really fast and takes 2 shots to kill someone

It's a sick gun... Heavy so can't sprint but you can lay off at least 2 kills every death qs it just its through everything in its path... Leaving nothing behind apart from death and kills

I think that this gun is #1

45 M14

This gun is amzing of you use the reflex scope on it I just play multi player but it's bad in zombies

This weapon is the deadliest of them all. I just love it!

This gun has high damage and very bad recoil, through a grip and get slight of hand cause this gun will blow you away, in the right hands it is an unstopable thing. Train your finger and accept semi.

How can you not make a list without this gun
