Best Call of Duty: Ghosts Weapons

The Top Ten
1 Honey Badger

This was my FIRST gold gun in Call of Duty: Ghosts (took me three days to get gold). You'd think since it is silenced it would be horrible at range, right... WRONG! This gun just has amazing iron sights and somehow a good feel for long range. This gun with that perk that allows you to have three attachments to your gun (whatever it is called), well you can have FOUR attachments with the Honey Badger. Well, this has been my argument for why he 300 AAC Honey Badger is my favorite rifle in Call of Duty history, even more than the ACR 6.8 from MW3.

2 AK-12

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.

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

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

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 in all though, this weapon is deadly in the right hands, and in my opinion is the best in the game.


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!

MTAR-X and Vector CRB are the best SMG in Ghosts. First of all, those are the guns pro players use and with the right perks it takes only 3-4 shots to kill.

My main player has classes with Bizon, MTAR-X, R5, Honey Badger, Vector, and a Sniper or a Riot Shield. It's so nice that you can have 36 different classes!

5 SC-2010

I think this is the best gun in the whole game! I reccomend putting silencer and fore grip. SC!

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

Best gun to start with in this game.

6 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.

7 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 gun is overpowered, I don't use it, nor is it my favorite gun but I know it is O.P!

8 The Ripper

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 time, movement speed, etc). Even with these changes, the Ripper will still be a top-tier one-man-army type of weapon, it just wont be so ridiculous, making it an overall very good weapon instead of an overpowered one to be complained about when everyone uses only it.

9 Riot Shield
10 SVU
The Contenders
11 Chain S.A.W

The chain SAW should be in 1st p! lace if you add a muzzle break and rapid for the is thing is a MACHINE GUN

12 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.

13 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.

Its great for rushing quick scoping and hard scoping. I put silencer and thermal scope I think it's a great gun

The most satisfying sniper in ghosts. It has decent mobility.


The MSBS is my favorite gun in Ghosts. I know it got nerfed, but it is still good. My favorite thing about it is the 2 shot power. It 2 shots up to 20 meters if you hit the body, neck, or head. It has 0.8x low damage multipliers on the arms, hands, legs, and feet resulting in a 3 shot kill if one bullet hits. Overall, this thing is still the fastest killing weapon in ghosts if you get a 2 shot kill.

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

This gun has the best accuracy in the assault rifle class just put a foregrip and scope it is awesome!

15 Bizon

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.

16 K7

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.

This gun has the best short range (aside from shotguns)in the game. It has an integrated silencer and does decent range. Definitely deserves a top 10 spot. I've found with the foregrip and red dot sight best in the game (besides the ripper). I got this gun to gold in 2 days.

Simply a monster. Grip/Extended mags running speed perks is a great setup. First time dropping 100 kills was with this gun

17 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.

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

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

18 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.

Best gun in the game with good ROF and good range and cheap! Put a tracker and silencer and it is beast! P.S it should be first!

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

19 Bulldog

Are you kidding? Nothing needs to be said.

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

20 Maverick AR

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.

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

21 Vepr

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.

22 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...?

23 Ameli

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.

24 MR-28
25 P226

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

Very compact and mobile good in Blitz matches high adaptability.
