Top 10 Best Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Zombies Weapons

Picking the right Black Ops 2 Zombies weapon can be the difference between a glorious survival streak and watching your brains become a tasty undead snack. With tons of awesome options, it can be tough to decide on your loadout. Should you go with classics or experiment with a new powerhouse?
The Top Ten
1 Ray Gun

The Ray Gun is the best gun for damage in both low and high rounds, even with the splash damage. Plus, it's the best gun to use when you're running a big train because it kills more zombies than other guns said to be the best (RPD, Hammer, Mustang and Sally).

By far the best gun, not only in Black Ops Zombies but also the best in the Black Ops series. It's better than the Ray Gun Mark II (Black Ops 2 Vengeance Pack).

You can't get anything better than the Ray Gun. This Wonder Weapon literally blows me away. Seriously.

2 Ray Gun Mark II

This Wonder Weapon is great. The only thing is that when you are using it when there's only one zombie, and you shoot it, the three-round burst kind of wastes ammo. That is the only downside, though. Otherwise, this thing is literally THE BOSS.

When my friends and I are playing and one of us gets it, the rest of us get really jealous. We literally just hate him for the rest of the round. Would recommend Pack-a-Punching it. That really 'packs a punch!'

The Ray Gun Mark II is a beast and is actually better when Pack-a-Punched, unlike the Ray Gun. It can easily take out Brutus, Panzer Soldat, and hordes of zombies. Also, its reload is a lot quicker.

3 Galil

Better than the Ray Gun, in my opinion. This gun has absolutely no recoil whatsoever and I think it's more fun to use than the Ray Gun. The hit detection on the Ray Gun is sometimes poor and it feels downgraded when Pack-a-Punched, unlike the Galil. This is definitely the best weapon in the game.

Probably the best AR in the Black Ops series, it has high damage, high ammo reserve, and a high rate of fire. It is outclassed by the AN-94 in maps where it is a wall buy simply because it's almost as good and ammo can be purchased. However, the Galil makes up for it by having a higher DPS than the AN-94.

4 Sliquifier

Seriously? It seems like all the people who actually play Zombies vote for this, and I'm finding that the better Wonder Weapons are lower on the list than worse ones. Post-patched, I think I've killed about 50 zombies with one shot. It is still easy to kill more than 24 zombies with it in one shot, just be smart and chain about 4-8 zombies, and the others will spawn in to make a chain reaction.

This weapon is also definitely better for camping because of how overpowered it is. So, being smart with all your shots will be 24+ multiplied by 60 (amount of ammo), which equals at least 1440 zombies per Sliquifier. Mind you, probably getting Max Ammos along the way. It's an easy win.


This thing kicks butt when normal and kicks even more butt when Pack-a-Punched. It's really good. I would definitely recommend it.

The only downside is that it takes a long time to reload when you're in a sticky situation. Even at Round 27, which is the highest I've gotten, this thing is really effective.

Though the Ray Guns are great due to their large ammo capacity and effective insta-kill until round thirty, the HAMR has a larger ammo capacity and is nearly unstoppable with speed reload and double tap as long as you're lucky and the "Max Ammo"s keep coming. Not to mention practical immortality while actual insta-kill is up - if you somehow still have ammo by then.

6 AN-94

Wall weapon with LMG-esque ammo. What else is there to say? It's able to go far longer without Max Ammos than the Galil simply due to being a wall buy. Plus, the maximum ammunition capacity PaP'd with this bad boy will net a noticeable amount of money surpassing the ammo cost from the wall PaP'd, assuming you hit all bullets even if none of the zeds die.

A simple difference to this gun - the wallbuy - that simply makes it surpass the overloved Galil. Much easier to handle than SVU-AS, too, leaving lots more space for error than the scoped sniper rifle that can be relatively punishing if you mess up.

7 PDW-57

All I can say about the PDW-57 is it's a rare weapon for Spec Ops Zombies Survival in single waves of zombies. Harden.

I'm swimming in points when I use this thing on Buried. Who needs the bank when you have the point gun itself?


Okay, the L-SAT isn't the best LMG in the game, but for real, it's solid, powerful, and its ammo is perfect. Use Double Speed and Jug for safety, and you're unstoppable. If you want to be safe forever, though, throw on an Electric Cherry.

The best weapons for Zombies are the Mark 2 with its fast reloading in about 3 seconds, and the Call of Duty: World at War Ray Gun.

This is the best light machine gun to kill the zombies in three seconds!

9 Porter's X2 Ray Gun

The regular Ray Gun is not that much different. When you pack the Ray Gun, it just turns the ray red and gives more ammo. Green looks better too.

This is an excellent wonder weapon. All you need to do is avoid shooting zombies really close to you.

A Pack-a-Punched Ray Gun is twice as good as the normal Ray Gun!

10 Bowie Knife
The Contenders
11 AK74u

This is most certainly good because I have used it. Also, it has a low mag size, but that shouldn't be a problem.

12 Fire Staff

This staff is way better than the Wind Staff but around the same power as the Bowie Knife. This staff is amazing.

13 Paralyzer

No stop signs, speed limits, nothing is going to slow me down. What about the Paralyzer? Zombies are getting too fast, slow them down with the Paralyzer, only 950 from the mystery box.

If you need to get out of a huge herd of zombies, just look down and fly upwards. So fun to not have to use Leroy.

The zombies are too fast for you? Slow them with the Paralyzer! It's only 950 from the mystery box.

14 Death Machine

It may slow you down and take time to reload, but this gun has a high rate of fire, which I like. It's easy to kill Brutus with. Also, I love the noise it makes when you are firing it.

Seriously? This is the best gun in Black Ops 2. It may have a really slow time to reload, but it has awesome damage, and I say it's useful up to round maybe 100.

Whoops. Did I accidentally shoot you with the Death Machine? Bet that hurt.

15 RPD

This and the HAMR are excellent when Pack-a-Punched. Both have high ammo capacity and can mow down hordes for long periods of time, easing off your ammo burden for other guns in your loadout. They work excellently alongside good, ammo-burning weapons like the Mk II.

I think it's better than the Hammer, besides the reload speed. It's still perfect for high rounds and just completely mowing down hordes.

This has a lot better aim than the HAMR and is the second-best heavy machine gun in Zombies!

16 Semtex
17 Python

This with double tap is an instant kill during rounds 10 to 20.

This is a great gun but bad against groups. However, it has a very high fire rate, shot damage, and DPS (damage per second).

If you Pack-a-Punch this with dual Five-Sevens and Speed Cola, it's better than having the Ray Gun.

18 MP5

This is the best gun for gaining points in the early rounds. Could use more ammo though.

This is an awesome point builder. If it didn't have a low ammo count, I would argue it's better than the PPSh.

19 Wind Staff

The ultimate Wind Staff charged shot will kill any zombies within its radius. It completely puts the others to shame.

20 Claymore

My best weapon is 64 manual detonator fuses to set off an explosive charge. Quick and easy!

21 Executioner

It is a shotgun in a revolver's body. When upgraded along with Double Tap, it is a beast, along with its dad, the Python.

Just the best. Really high damage.

I find that this gun is the best because, when you Pack-a-Punch it, it's better than the Ray Gun.


In the mid-40s, it still one-shots to the head, making it the most powerful non-wonder weapon in all of Zombies. And yes, it puts the Ray Gun to shame.

Actually, sorry, after trying it out, it's been an instant headshot past round 55, the highest I've gotten, with Double Tap.

One-hit headshot up till round 35ish. Bullets can go through zombies. Good for getting the Deadshot Daiquiri Permaperk.

23 Mustang and Sally

It's amazing to see how the M1911 is so bad originally until you Pack-a-Punch it. It turns into one of, if not the best, especially for trains. Double Tap and Speed Cola make it an absolute monster.

Bruh, this can clear a full train of zombies with a well-placed middle shot. This should be first, not 29.


The MTAR is probably my favorite weapon. If I get it and an RPD/HAMR, I'm pretty much set to go to at least round 25.

This gun can be Pack-a-Punched more than five times and is pretty powerful with Double Tap.

25 Dead Specimen Reactor 5000

It's really reliable in higher rounds. With Speed Cola and Double-Tap, you are unstoppable, unless you aren't good with snipers.
