Top Ten Call of Duty: Black Ops Weapons

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

The Galil, its strengths were do we start, ok it is very accurate it has very low vertical recoil with a slight bit of weird ass horizontal recoil, however it is controllable. It has doesn't damage and a pretty good fire rate, and is very good for clearing out rooms to lasering someone across the map. A very good weapon overall.

The Galil, is best suited for those that like the mid to long range fight. Coupled with a suppressor and a reflex sight you can effectivly hit targets across the map. It's fire rate at mid to close range keeps rushers at bay without any problems. I constantly go >20-0 with this weapon but, I tend to play very methodical and get a bit campy.

Although it can run out of ammo, it is probably the greatest gun on black ops! I have always used it in multiplayer and in zombies if I get it. Really good rapid fire pretty good damage, pretty good range and accuracy! Barely any recoil also. Overall best gun ever made!

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!

2 Famas

The FAMAS is witthout a doubt the most popular assault rifle in Black Ops. It has incredible fire rate compared to it's damage, and can have mags of a size up to 45 (extended mag attachment) giving you a total of 360 rounds if you have Scavenger Pro

The Famas Kills like no other! Get sleight of hand perk ninja perk the other perk doesn't matter. Its like a two bullet hit kill at short, medium and long range. Use the dual mag attachment and you will be UNSTOPPABLE!

Great gun, loved it in mw2 too. Just a great gun, (mw2 one pull of the trigger and you get a kill)
Black ops is good koz it has a good fire rate and decent damage. But to get most out of it you really do need to tap triggers, not hold down. This gun requires a good skill if you want a beast gun to play with

It's got some recoil but red dot sight will somehow lower it's recoil. It's in fact like the ACR from MW2 because it can still shoot through walls without hardened. For long distance, 3 round burst the gun and you'll be all set.

3 Commando

The Commando is a great rifle. It has attachments that help improve it's shot and damage. The Commando also has a bigger damage impact then the FAMAS. It may have more impact which moves the gun a little when you shoot so you have to hold the trigger button for no longer than 3 seconds. The Commando has a t least 10, 15, 20 more impact damage then most gun and is good with long distances when you either have the ACOG Sight, or the Infared Scope, but I would recommend the Commando. Besides the FAMAS being in first place every position and place for all these rifles are great!

Brilliant gun no recoil should definitely be number 1. Amazing fire rate, power range. Equip with dual or extended mags or red dot site and silencer. So easy to get kills with this weapon - it is the overall winner. This gun kills easy noobs and campers easily and is great for raiding close combat situations. Have with hardline, slight of hand/warlord and hacker perks. Thank you treyarch for this gun.

Why is this gun not first?!? It has no recoil an excellent damage fire rate! This gun works really good with any attachment, but it is best paired with silencer and dual mags for extra ammo if you don't like scavenger. This gun is perfect for whatever game mode your playing, use it!

The commando... Just thinking about the name is awesome. It has great damage, in between low and medium recoil, and has tons of ammo to get the MOAB easier. My opinion is to attach the ACOG scope. It so god after that. Seriously! Aiming is really easy.

4 AK 47

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.

This gun is just plain amazing. If you know how to use it it can be very good for long range, mid rand, and close range. I go with silencer on this gun and secondary c7z5 with fully auto. Ghost (or hardline if you prefer it, ) sleight of hand and hacker. Can't go wrong.

Good damage output and good ammo load out. Awesome with dual mags and the suppressor. It takes some time getting used to. The gun is accurate but the gun moves up and down and resets. If you can get used to this kick then you can dominate.

The ak47 is the best at all range no recoil so good beginner quality far close range all the same to me but if you like close range aim to the chest and tap at far then it has no recoils at all with the silencer and red dot please use

5 AK 74U

I think the ak74u is beast at med to short, I would suggest grip with rapid fire. For long I would highly suggest aug or ak47. If you want to stick with a close med and long range gun and win all gun fight I suggest the aug cause it has a high rate of fire and low recoil. But the top guns I think will be SMG: ak74u, mp5k ASSULT RIFLE: Aug, galil, ak47. Shotguns: Spas 12. Snipers: psg1 Lmg : sonter-8

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.

It is really good in close range, especially with rapid fire. It goes really fast with the fire rate because if is a SMG. It also has great range. you can put like any attachments on it. it has the best stats for the SMG section and I think that section it that best.

This is the best gun in black ops. You can't compare the famas to it, because this gun lets you move faster, and, like most SMGs in black ops, shoots fast and kills fast, considering its damage per round. It's also awesome for zombies.


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!

An incredible Assault Rifle. Second highest dps in the game. I always use an acog on it. You can fire it accurately at all ranges although you need to burst fire it at long range but it only takes a couple of shots to kill anyway. Absolutely destroys on maps like nuketown. I often kill people before they even finish the scoping animation.

Beast gun for CQB. Use it with extended mags, suppressor or dual mag. Rips people apart at close to middle range. No issues with kills. Use scavenger pro, sleight of hand pro and marathon pro. Best game- 36-2 using Spy Plane, Counter Spy Plane and Blackbird.

I seem to like this gun (AUG) the best with it's fast fire rate. Burst fire this gun with a long shot. I like the AUG with extended mags and just iron site, along with Sleight of hand pro. This combo goes really for me on Nuketown

7 Stoner 63

Really, I was torn between the M60 and the Stoner, but in the end, the Stoner is (barely) a better gun. Its more practical and feels like an AR with LMG upgrades. The biggest issue I have is how little ammo it has, carrying a total of 120 bullets with 30 bullets in a mag (60 with extended mag) this thing will blow through ammo in no time. But I think it has an amazing iron sights, despite what people say, and is brutal when firing from a crows nest. The reload time isn't all bad either. I recommend using extended mag and tactical insurgon with this bad boy. Have fun winning.

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.

The stoner is kind of like the famas but is slower. The thing is though is that you can aim faster than the famas due to the nerf it once got. It aims faster than the rest of the LMGs and you move a little faster too. The movment isn't great but it's better. The gun is really good at long to medium range combat and can be very fun to use. I used hardened. It allows me to spam shots through cover and tear my enemies apart.

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.

8 M60

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.

My goto gun. Use warlord, flak, and second chance (Pro for all three). With warlord you get two attachments. I use the grip and an improved sight. Mainly red dot (changed to teal) but reflex when there's a contract is just as good. ACOG (when there's a contract) but it's not as easy for me.

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

This gun is amazing! I actually got 38 kills in a row and I got to use all my kill streaks, I'd reccomend you use this gun if your a low level you'd really level up fast

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.

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

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

10 M16

Easily the best gun in the game. I personally hate all Iron sights except the kiparis's
This gun take maybe 1-2 shots (since its 3 bullets a shot) to kill from long range, medium range, to close range. If they rush you and are close enough, theyll get you, but if you se
Get your sights on them and their dead. Equip an ACOG and you can snipe the map, equip a dual mag and it should remove need for sleight of hand. You CAN rush with it.
It alsohas a lot of power. It takes abouta week or two of practice, but play only with it and you can master it easy

The m16 is the best gun! Just put supresor with red dot sight (your red dot sight reticle will be dot only) if you want better acuracy and supresor with dual mag if you want to change ammo fast P. S youll look awesome with lightweight and m16 as an S.O. G and facepaint reaper. I killed up to 299 kills and 42 death with m16 if you want shoot far range m16 if your a close ranging use commando you need luck to kill a person with m16 but it proven itself effectivly in battle go in long range firefights and see for your self

The M16 is very versatile. It has the longest range of all the assault rifles. You can kill people in one burst at insane distances. Try the m16 with the acog sight or even the IR scope. Hardline, hardened, and hacker are good fits. You may consider sleight of hand due to longer aiming but its not a bad fir either.

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

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.

One of the best guns ever made. The Thundergun will get you multiple kills per disc!

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.

12 MP5K

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!

A very underrated weapon.
However, it has great damage and managable recoil. The headshot multiplier is also just plain rediculous on this weapon.

I run it with Reflex sight
Perks: Ghost, Steady Aim, Marathon.
It definitely packs a punch and is a very strong weapon.

Slower fire rate compared to most of other smgs but you get stronger bullets like the AK74U. The only differents between these guns is the Ak has faster reloads and is more accurate. The AK also has more attatchments. Either way the
MP5K a good 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.

13 G11

Great iron sights, superb accuracy. The low power scope attachment is unique and easy to use, also good hip-fire accuracy. Should be number 1

Absolutely love this gun. Packed with great damage from its deadly 3-round burst, this ugly gun is VERY deadly at any range.

This is true and it shouldn't be number 9 it should be number one because it is the best type along with the sniper l96a1.

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

14 L96A1

For any sniper out there like me, you played this gun because it was almost always a one shot kill. This was the best sniper hands down. PSG1 was a close second.

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.

This gun is extremely good. It is definitely the best sniper there is that you can have, and I do not know why it is ranked #19. I think that it should be about #8 or 9. With this gun you can quickscope and noscope really easily, especially if you have a extended mag and if you are a hardscoper, using variable zoom makes it really good. I think that this gun deserves to be in the top ten. :) :)

The only good sniper out there and in my opinion the best gun in call of duty history period.

15 MPL

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.

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

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.

Equip this with rapid fire, scavenger pro, slight of hand pro and marathon pro and you can dominate. P.S. Don't forget to equip a tomahawk.

16 Python

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.

Spammy high damage revolver that you could throw on a speed re-loader? HELL YEAH

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

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

17 Olympia

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.

Best gun in short range

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

-No attachment

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

Best gun ever I got 92 kill with this gun LOL

18 Dragon's Breath

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

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

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

Crossbow is last seriously you don't even need to hit people to kill them with this pwning gun!

Add camo and attachments and bang best gun ever

This in Search & Destory use it with Ak47 and suppeser it kicks ass!

20 Enfield

Severly underrated. As a user of the SCAR in MW2, for me this gun rings the truest. Accurate at great distance with a good trigger touch and just enough power at close range with a great iron site as well.
A+ weaponry, have been consistently at a ratio of 2.50 with this bad boy

It has low (although slightly inconsistent) recoil and a SMG-aim speed, making it very versatile and pretty handy up close. Perfect when prestiging and deadly at most ranges if burst fired effectively.

Best gun in the game unlocked at very low level. THIS IS THE GUN TO GET! On Nuketown sit right down stairs in one of houses press shoot and your bound to be 1st place. GOOD LUCK!

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

21 Stakeout

This BEAST shotgun causes a large ammount of damage at close range, however, the four bullets and small ammount of ammo you can carry makes it a killing spree weapon, The reloading process is quite slow. It is a GREAT weapon though.

I love this gun. Every time I use this gun I get at least a 3.0 k/d. Great paired with marathon, lightweight, and steady aim. I love to run around and hip-fire it. Best gun in my opinion. Overpowered, like the spas-12 of mw2

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 a pump action an can blow holes in anything good on multiplayer even better on zombies

22 Ballistic Knife

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

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

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

The best if you are good at knifing I just got 157-21 on death match

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

It should have been a primary

Best shotgun
Many cool camos
Best with a silencer

24 Spectre

It freelance good to use it has decent damage and a good magazine size pair this with suppresor and your already having killstreaks!

Amazing with Silencer

Same as above: tiger camo, rapid fire: MERRK

Sucks in zombies

25 PPSh-41

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

Iconic. Great primary weapon

This should be #1

Ppsh 41 has most speed and accuaracy inthe game
