Best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Weapons

The Top Ten

1 AK-47

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...

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

Just the perfect kinda weapon. Easy spray pattern, and high damage at all distances.

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

Deadliest weapon in CS GO in competitive matches. However requires high skills to play with.

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.

Sniper rifle? Cool. Assault rifle? Cool. Assault rifle with a sniper scope? PERFECT! Now, I know it is not a sniper scope, but it is a scope nonetheless. It is effective at close range, mid-range, long range! Easy to get headshots and 4 bodyshots to kill someone is enough anyway. It has long reload times, however, so you gotta watch out.

its shiit

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

6 G3SG1

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

Auto snipers aren't for noobs. This gun is powerful and its rate of fire is brilliant. For example, if someone who is using an AWP misses you, you have the upper hand because If you are using this gun, you have a better rate of fire. Personally, I think this and all autos opera are BETTER than the AWP

The SCAR-20 is the better of the two autosnipers, but the G3SG1 is the more useful of the two as the autosniper is more useful on T-side. Both are overpowered, with a ridiculous rate of fire and a high damage output, plus decent no-scope accuracy, but when faced with a decent or better AWPer, you will lose that matchup most of the time since the AWP is a one shot kill. Autosnipers are considered the "noobiest" weapon since they're very easy to use.

7 SG 553

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.

Honestly, I don't get why people call it a noob gun, it does better damage than the aug, pretty sure has faster reload than the aug and you can't just spray and pray like a p90 with this weapon

Good for beginners, but the AK is cheaper, better at short range and nearly just as good long range, and has an easier spray pattern.

He is a weapon.

You have no chance, why? you don't have the pass... the Olofpass

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.

FAMAS is OP when burst firing at long range.

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

Great gun, good accuracy destroys in close combat against all guns except someone who knows what their doing with an AWP or shotguns.

The best aggressive rifle in mid and short rangs engagement, only beaten by the ak-47

12 R8 Revolver

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

I call it the wall-destroyer. On maps like Cruise, you can sometimes get lucky with the lower hostage if a CT comes and tries to take it. Look through the wall on the left where the CT would be, and keep right clicking. I got about 3 kills in 2 seconds doing this.

Aside from that, if you want accuracy, hold the trigger, and right before it fires, jump out from behind a wall and aim at the opponent. Corner-destroyer.

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 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!

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

15 Attack Helicopter

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

Just get 25 kill and u earn it

Amazing short range

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

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

People like the Deagle over this gun, but I don't really like it. This gun costs abou half the cost of the Deagle, has better accuracy and recoil control. So you can just fire rapidly and deal massive damage without needing great firepower.

This is the best pistol in my opinion it has low recoil, good armour pentration and does nice damage firerate is also satisfying but you should always go for headshots with this gun since it is ONE HIT HS KILL even with helmet and kevlar on at very close range -mid to long range it takes 1 hs and a few body shots to kill someone (glock needs 3 damn hs to kill someone)
