Best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Weapons

The Top Ten

1 AK-47

If you use this correctly it is extremely good. If you're bad however...

Excellent accuracy and damage, but low recoil control and it is loud as an elephant in a Chinese vase store. You can instakill with headshots, though, so...

It has best accuracy and low recoil. When this gun is in my hand, I feel like that I have power of thunder.

The best gun in the game its hard to control effective when you burst fire

This gun takes training. You can't just be Shroud overnight, and people have to understand that. But once you get good using it, it will destroy the other team. One shot kill above the waste. Mag holds a TON of bullets (for a sniper.) double zoom. What more could you possibly need?

Takes a lot of skill to flick and master the weapon. Till this day, no one has ever mastered the weapon fully, and if anyone could, it would be deadly. It would destroy every team.

Awp is really amazing and I use it every game

It's an awesome sniper riffle and I use it all the time.

3 M4A1-S

Amazing gun, it has no tracers so shooting through smoke is easier because they can't see the direction the shots are coming from. Also, better accuracy that M4A4 (at longer ranges) but doesn't shine like the M4A4 at those close to medium range situations. Long to medium range duels suit the M4A1-S better.

M4A4 is actually better than the M4A1 due to its larger magazine as well as its increased damage towards armors. The first shot accuracy of the A4 is the same as the A1, besides the recoil of the A4 is a bit higher than the A1.

This gun is perfect when it comes to good mobility decent firepower and low recoil

Great fire rate, much more accurate than m4a4

Easy to shoot from long distances and very low recoil as well. Easy to use while walking or crouching but difficult while running. Also not really the best weapon for spraying. A great gun nonetheless.

Totally agree with other comments. AUG as SG553 are in my opinion the most effective weapons to use in this game. If you are good spraying + good sniping... don't waste your time, just use it and get impressed by his very easy headshot in mid/long distances and his perfect accuracy on short ones.

Scoped accuracy is great and you can start firing from the hip and then use the scope for quick kills.

I shot a long shot with a aug

5 P90

This really is the perfect weapon for rushing. Has a high rate of fire to kill enemies faster, large clip size so that if you are rushing 2 enemies, you can kill one and go straight on to killing the other, and has a short reload time which makes you less vulnerable.

Awesome gun, quick reloading, good accuracy on mid range, big clip, and did you see this damn thing's fire rate?

Takes no skill what so ever

best gun

6 G3SG1

Probably the most op gun in the game. Useful for making the other team extremely mad.

Simply the best

Powerful but hard to master.

It is good j agree

7 SG 553

This is my go to gun for everything, death match, competitive, EVERYTHING. One time everyone on my team had an Awp, I told them I would snipe in the nest on mirage and guess what they didn't let me and what happened? I got the most kills, spraying and 1-tapping at long range.-

This and the AUG are my favorites, they are highly accurate and there is a zoom option. They also can be used as one tap headshot weapons - Phillip873

This is typically my go-to gun. Why? Because it can be a highly effective sniper when used correctly at long range, yet when you must rush it is just as helpful as an AK. The only downside is the cost, but it's worth it if you can land a good headshot here and there.

Simple to use, good if you tap fire.

Boostmeister good weapon my friend

9 Galil

Very nice gun, cheap and can easily obtain in early rounds.

What about the AR?

Better than Famas because it has practically 0 recoil

Better than p90

V 5 Comments

FAMAS is basically the same thing as Galil-AR, but it also has a burst fire mode, which is useless, but I think it also has more damage and accuracy, but it costs 250 dollars more.

This sums it up nicely, though burst fire has a couple extremely limited uses

Nice fire rate, good accuracy and controllable recoil. The FAMAS is my baby.

This gun is cheap and make almost no damage every time you get killed

Loved it ever since I got my first skin which was a famas teardown

The Contenders

11 M4A4

Kinda like a terrorist gun except good accuracy

Has lots of bullets and is decent at long range so I pick it over the silenced one

Looks good, sounds good, feels good, and IS good.

I prefer the Ak, but this weapon is one of my favorites, I don't know why it's so low.

12 R8 Revolver

Nerfed, no longer good, desert eagle is better

Badass in a gun.

It's 1 shot kill above the belly button...

Deagle is better

13 Sawed Off

This weapon is horrible. It has the highest bullet spread out of all the shotguns, can't even land a body shot at mid range, and only works at very close range. In my opinion, the nova is better. Less bullet spread, has a better name, works better at mid to long range if you use it right, and is a one shot kill to the head.

This gun looks cool, but at the end of the day, it is awful. It's only good at VERY close range, and is actually impossible to use at medium (and higher) because of its ridiculously small range. As a CT, this would be a pretty good weapon to hide out with, but it's a terrorist-only gun, limiting its usage completely. There's no reason to buy the Sawed-Off at all as a terrorist, considering its limited range and lack of usefulness.

The only place the gun is useful in is the map assault, as there is a vent which you can hide out in as a terrorist and shoot counter terrorists who enter the vent ( it's longer to go in the vent if your a counter terrorist than a terrorist)

Great damage. Always one hit kill up close if you don't miss. Very underrated weapon. Game changer in close quarter combat

14 Attack Helicopter

Crazy gun. Its 1 shot 10 kill. It sends a nuke to the map. Its suicide. -414

Master Chief can hop on the turret and spray down a lot of grunts.

Just get 25 kill and u earn it

They don't care do they?

15 Tec-9

Known currently as the "Wreck-9", the Tec-9 got a heck of a boost when the because-75 was nerfed, making it extremely spammable. It now has a great range with a whole lot of power -- it now only takes one headshot to kill and 3 body shots to kill -- and has 32 bullets per magazine. To top that off, it has a pretty high rate of fire and is only $500. The only downside is that the recoil can be pretty terrible, but the Tec-9 is easily the best Terrorist pistol at the moment, bar none.

Press it fast enough, you now have a secondary machine gun!

Great for rushes, it has good running accuracy.

For some reason, I fell like all pistols have a disadvantage over each other. The usp and the glock suck at close range, p250 has bad accuracy, cz75 has barely any bullets, Tec 9 and five seven have the highest recoil out of all the pistols other than the deagle, r8 revolver is slower than the sawed off, deagle has horrible mobility so you have to be standing COMPLETELY still to fire accurately, dualies have sucks armor penetration

16 XM1014

Ok, do you like the Sawed-Off shotgun? Yes? Now, make it rapid-fire. Awesome. It may have poor range, but what did you expect from a shotgun? If anyone gets in close contact with you when you are carrying this baby, they're screwed. Only bad thing about it is its high cost.

Deals massive. Damage with high rate of fire. At long ranges just switch to pistol.

The best shotgun ever made, compared to nova (lower fire rate) it's a murderer!

Equal best shotgun with the mag-7

17 MAG-7

Best shotgun in the game; it is useful at short and medium range. It's cheap and has an extremely high kill reward of $900. get_right had an ace with a MAG-7 before, showing that in the right hands, this can be the best weapon in the game.

Accurate while jumping, good range, good spread, good power, good price, good kill reward, fast reload. King of shotguns and one of the most underrated CS:GO weapons.

If one know how to use this weapon correctly he could be undefeated

Best shotgun; top comment sums it up nicely

18 Knife

One shot kill from anywhere on the map. I was in my car drinking some coffee and I found a shiny bayonet in my car. I ended up swinging it for fun and that's how the civil war started. GOOD TIMES.

Best long and short ranged weapon

Best for noscoping scrubs through walls

I can snipe with the knife better than I can with the AWP

19 Bazooka

Don't know how this isn't number 1

Definitely in CS:GO

My favourite bazooka skin is cyrex

No spary pattern, one shot five kill. Effective against attack helikopter.

20 P250

Most cost efektive

Best Pistol. cheapest (to buy) and has O.K. accuracy. amazing damage, and nearly as spammable as the Tec-9
