Best Call of Duty: Ghosts Weapons

The Top Ten

1 Honey Badger Honey Badger The honey badger, also known as the ratel, is widely distributed in Africa, Southwest Asia, and in the Indian subcontinent.

Honey Badger? Lol.

In Ghosts, a silenced weapon is very deadly. With the wide-open maps, an assault rifle does much better than an SMG, which is opposite of Black ops 2. The Honey Badger is an assault rifle, which has an integrated Silencer. This gives you room in your attachments for a fore grip, plus whatever floats your boat.

Honey badger is the best

Might be the best

2 AK-12

Great all around

Put this gun with a silencer and extended mags and it is amazing.

The AK-12 is a very nice weapon in every way. Low recoil, high damage, and a relatively high fire rate. When I play I always use this gun I recommend it best gun in Ghosts.

This weapon although very good is overshadowed by the Remington and Hobey Badger the AK-12 is a very capable assault rifle has high damage and nice clean iron sights and since the health system in Call of Duty Ghosts is quite low this thing if used correctly can melt people.

3 Remington R5

This isn't my favorite gun but out of all the guns on this list I think it is the most accurate and deadly.

The Remington R5 is amazing since it is both powerful and accurate. Long distance engagements even against opposing snipers can be won with a Remington since it's so steady when firing, and kills in usually 3 hits. And if your worried about the smaller mag capacity, don't be. The higher damage per round makes up for a little less ammo, and on top of that the reduced fire rate aids in limiting ammo consumption. This weapon is extremely useful when mastered, and is best in the hands of those who prefer accurate and reliable fire over spray and prey.

Now, this gun has its dis-advantages. It's a long weapon and is easier to spot by enemies if your around a corner or cover. Also the slower fire rate sometimes means that even if you aim down sights and injure an opponent, they can often still manage to kill you with a faster firing weapon if they in return also land their shots. To avoid this from happening however you can use the perk FOCUS which assist in less flinch when shot. All ...more

It's the best weapon in Call of Duty ghosts because good range, damage and accuracy and is the most versatile weapon in the game!

This thing is awesome! One time I got 29 kills with it on strike zone24/7 domination.

MTAR-X is the best! I use it in safeguard and I win everysingle time. If you put Holographic sight and muzzle break hen you are better off than a sniper rifle

Best SMG my ass. It is weaker in stats than the vector, and has terrible iron sights.

Best SMG ever, if you put the right attachments on it

Best SMG in its class. Comes with fantastic iron sights and looks great. Its bullpup design makes for faster reloads. Put a muzzle brake on it and it's great at long range, add a fore grip for less recoil. Overall great gun!

5 SC-2010

Lowest recoil in the AR category, one of the best ranges, great all around weapon, and... NO SQUAD POINTS!

This my favorite gun in the game because it's good for infected.

Really good covers all abilities for gun that are needed

Best gun to start with in this game.

6 Vector CRB

The Vector is an amazing weapon. It provides a very high damage with a low recoil. I would say this weapon is better than the MTAR-X, as it does more damage and has far better handling. It may be so that an MTAR has rifle class range, but a Vector has more controllable fire and the accuracy makes up for a little less range.

Just take a look at competitive Call of Duty if you're looking for a reason why.

This is a load of rubbish the vector is best it has great accuracy and is op works well in medium gun fights like the mtar but this has to be top

I think this should be number 1

7 FP6

This Shotgun is the most powerful shotgun in the game and does at max a brutal 800 damage up close and that's easily handy should there be any protest.

At close range 1 pellet can kill a person

Great weapon all around

8 The Ripper

When I tried to change my gun to the ripper I couldn't find it?

Definitely overpowered

This weapon is really quite overpowered. You have an smg with a very high fire rate and controllable recoil, and then you can switch to an assault rifle for longer ranges instantaneously (yes, proven to have a 0.00 second change time). This means the Ripper has 2x the versitality of any other weapon in the game, as it can handle two times as many engagements, if not more. While neither the SMG or AR forms of the weapon are particularly the best of its respective class (although this can be argued) they are both more than good enough to get most jobs done. I believe that if they should balance the weapon, they should do so by making the SMG stats active only when the sight-change animation is complete, and vice-versa, so players will use the 2-in-1 feature to anticipate what engagements they will encounter and what is most likely to be helpful, rather than instantly switch to what they need when in a pinch. In addition, make the AR variant show less SMG traits (hipfire spread, ADS ...more

This gun should be in the top 3. The problem I had was the range was only decent, and the price 4.99 for a gun is a little excessive. For being able to switch to rifle it should have more range. That being said, it's my favorite gun in the game. Easy to get to gold.

12 EBR

A real monster at putting people down at any range as long as you are prepared

The MK14 EBR has the highest damage in its class this allows the weapon to be an sniper rifle with the strong barrel. But it can also used as MK14 an modernized version of the M14 and this weapon is a beast



I use it a lot when playing squads

3 bullets all round, low recoil and banned in some tournaments how is this not no. 1

Why did everyone switch to the Honey Badger? This was the best weapon of all time!

Hands down best assault rifle on Call of Duty ghost also my favorite

14 L115

This is the most powerful Sniper rifle along side the lynx but it has better traits than the lynx and can do a lot of damage when annoying the enemy.

Best sniper rifle Call of Duty made

Best weapon in the game!

15 USR

The USR is a fantastic sniper rifle especially with its one shot kill capabilities although I am also very fond of the L115, it also has fantastic one shot kill capabilities and is very similar to the USR although USR has slightly higher mobility.

A great bolt action sniper

Beast one shot sniper is all I want and it looks nice.

An absolute monster

16 ARX-160

Why is this the best weapon! The AK-12, First of all has low recoil, long range abilities, amazing iron sights, and since when are we basing guns on their looks? This is probably one of the most used guns right next to the honey badger.

This gun is absolutely unstoppable online, it is very similar to the Remington but has a much nicer feel to it

ARX-160 is my favourite gun in the game because of its good looking!

That gun sucks ass

17 Bizon

My favorite gun in the game after the Remington R5

Good for close ranges

I love this gun. It has a great rate of fire and can do some damage at close/medium range. I am someone who is very stealthy. When I put a silencer on this gun no one can beat me, (well none of the cpu's can )
But I LOVE this gun. It needs to be in the top 3.

This gun is beast, it have great damage and the iron sights makes the honey badger look ugly, and its damage makes the vector crb cry.

18 Tac 12

is cool

19 SA-805

Definitely my weapon of choice. I use the red dot and silencer attachment on this weapon and do not experience any major problems with recoil. The recoil is easy to control as well. With the red dot and silencer, it is like a death beam. This is by far the most versatile assault rifle in its category.

it great

Combines the power of the power rifles with the accuracy and fire rate of the accuracy rifles.

How is this not higher? This gun is fantastic, great damage, clip size and appearance!

20 Bulldog

Whenever I use it I hear free bird playing in the back of my head

Best gun I have ever used on this game

Best weapon ever

This gun was an amazing choice for a stealth rushing class, which was basically the only well to get a KEM strike while playing solo in Ghosts. It had one of the best SMG silenced ranges, and the iron sight was clean for its purpose.

It has hight fire rate and kills fast. I love this gun

Awesome gun

22 Maverick AR

High damage.The recoil can be sorted with a foregrip.Kills in 2 bullets in close range

This gun does not deserve 13th place it should be in the top 5... If you are not good with this weapon and you are using a sight then I strongly suggest you use the iron sights, the flash suppressor, and the fore grip.

Love this gun

This gun is so versitile, it can kill quickly at any range has great iron sights, low recoil, easy to use, and looks cool.

23 M27

It's beast. High magazine size and I average 50 kills a game with it. Not a lot of guns have 100 ammo. Deserves number 1

Coupled with agility it is the best. Low recoil, high damage and massive magazine size

Didn't even know it was in the game...?

I love his gun got a kem without camping high damage

24 P226

Great for running with marksmen rifles and snipers, love the sights.

Coolest pistol ever

High damage B)

25 Vepr

It help me weth every thing because it aim fast and with the perk it has no recol and with a trackersigh it good

Add quickdraw and ready up, rush everything in blitz and is almost a complete troll. It already has the fastest aim time (MTAR in second by far.) This is what you want in blitz (And maybe trolling! )

This gun is amazing. Should be at least in 15th place.

I don't care vepr is definitely the best

26 Ameli

It’s really good I won a free for set on 75 kills with it and got 37 kills playing against my dad on team death match

The Ameli is basically an assault rifle that's jacked up to a much higher performance. It's accuracy is extremely high, range is great and with a scope and its steady fire rate, you can basically treat it like a semi automatic and still gets the kills in 3-5 hits no matter the distance. Even the honey badger takes 6 shots to kill at long range. 3 seconds to reload(without perks) and holds 100 shots in each clip. An amazing weapon

Attached silencer to ameli, to overcome his ability burst fire.

27 MR-28

Insane hair trigger rate of fire, range and damage

Underrated, absolutely unstoppable

I should be move to the top 10

28 VKS

Best weapon I got 28 kills to 5 deaths its super stealthy long range attacks one shot kill almost all the time with rapid follow up shots.

It's a sniper with a suppressor and semi auto... That's all

I play Call of Duty and I this gun is the best gun

It is good for me

29 Minigun


High rate

30 .44 Magnum

This is my Favorite Handgun because of the one shot kill at a close to mid range combat.

Okay its not the same like the other revolvers from Call of Duty it is an reload per shot. But it is really fun to use go with an tactical knive and kick some asses with this weapon!

Amazing handgun. That's all that needs to be said

31 IA-2

It's a good marksman rifle if used right, normal ammo capacity like the other marksman rifles, I say the recoil is moderate as well. (except the MR-28)

32 M9A1
33 MK32

High fire rate, I like this gun

I love this weapon

35 Maverick A2

This is the absolute best sniper rifle in the game...I use it with the Crome barrel and variable zoom lens... With this it has a one shot kill everywhere except for the right knee cap and below.

36 MK14
37 Combat Knife

It'sso good if you're stealthy

38 Lynx

This weapon is awesome with the semi-automatic, 1 shot killer but the only bad thing is the amount of recoil

39 FAD

I like fried chicken

What how is this not in top 5 at least, it's so powerful if you use it correctly.

This gun should be could the (Flappy Anus Destroyer) it shoots peanuts and I know what I'm about to say dosen't affect its gameplay it is the ugliest gun on all Call of Duty. And it's iron sight is atrocious

Well, you guys are weird

40 MTS-255

Awesome gun, best for charging

41 Venom X

Shoots goo and you can dentonate it

42 Light Machine Gun

It easy to use

43 Panzerfaust

This Rocket launcher is BOSS! You can instantly kill a group of enemies at once!


The reason why this is so overpowered is because first of all it does a heck of damage and you can guide it with the red laser
