Top 10 Fallout New Vegas Weapons

The Top Ten

1 Anti-Material Rifle

"Have you seen what one of those anti-materiel rifles can do to a deathclaw? "
Oh yes I have, and it's beautiful. Love this rifle and everything about this awesome game. Fallout: New Vegas is spectacular!

There's nothing better in a FPS than getting a one shot kill with a bad ass sniper rifle. THis is one of the only guns int the game that will grant you that awesomeness.

With all attachments and explosives rounds, you will become basically god of deathclaws

This is the best gun in the game what the heck

2 Oh Baby!

Probably the most overpowered melee weapon in the game.

Hit's hard, and easy to get, for me best melee weapon.

Easily slaughter the legion with this

It takes a while to get but worth it

3 Fat Man

Let me tell you something how can you vote for the anti material rifle when you can watch the fat man and it's ragdoll effect.

Two words Experimental M.I.R.V. It's the unique version of this weapon and it fires 8 nukes at a time

Although it seems better in Fallout 3, its still overpowered in New Vegas.

No guns beat the M.E.R. F special fat man on fallout 3 fires 8 mini nukes at once

4 Ranger Sequoia

Amazing revolver that will erase your enemies head.

I use it a lot but there's not a lot of ammo for it in any trading post? gun runners.

Because headless Deathclaws are prettier.

5 Holy Frag Grenades

Can take out the Alpha death claw with just one of them. To bad there are only three ):

6 Brush Gun

Basically an overpowered hunting rifle. (Sorry I keep the using the word overpowered)

Why is this gun so low on the list? It's the best all-around gun and is stronger than the AMR.

7 12.7 mm SMG

The 12.7mm submachine gun is really nice looking, effective and powerful. Favorite!

The underdog SMG. basically enormous DPS and decent fire rate, with good luck can go better than many weapons in this list.

Very good in any situation. Ammo is hard to find but is worth it!

Best SMG in the entire game.

8 All American

The all American is really awesome but hard to get

A b*tch to get to in Vault 34, but an overpowered Marksman Carbine.

-great way to pick off golden geckos

9 Plasma Caster

Might be the best energy weapon in the game.

10 A Light Shining In Darkness

Comes from the majestic Joshua Graham after he dies. It rips death claws to pieces. It has a seemingly never ending amount of critical hits. It's modeled after the 1911. And it fires faster than Automatic Riflea... enough' said!

It’s a special 1911 must there be more

Joshua Graham

The Contenders

11 Archimedes II

It's a bit glitchy but can easily be fixed. I agree with the other guy, how is this not first? It has unlimited ammo, massive blast radius, ungodly damage, disintegration chance and it also looks cool! Best super space laser ever!

How the heck is this gun not even on the list!? Archimedes 2 is the single greatest gun in this entire franchise. It is an absolute joy to use and was a brilliant idea. First place. Ps. If you don't know what it is, YouTube it!

I didn't initially put this one on the list because, while it is arguably the most powerful weapon in the game, you can only use it once a day.

Doesn't firing down explosives from the sky sound fun? We'll its possible just by it from the kid in freeside, and complete Archimedes II quest

12 Riot Shotgun

Good weapon for any encounters.

Best shotgun in the game.

13 Alien Blaster

You can literally take on anything with this weapon. It easily can take out an entire casino of thugs in minutes and whip out the BrotherHood of steel at Hidden Valley bunker with ease.

An extremely powerful weapon that is second only to the Anti-Material rifle.

Can only be obtained with the Wild Wasteland trait.
Totally worth it.

14 YCS/186

The damage and range makes up for the single shot only, my
Favorite unique.

A shotgun that is a energy weapon impresed

15 That Gun

This gun carries me from level 5-26,plus it is free if you have 25 lock-pick and don't mind a little bad karma,and allows the use of 5.56 ammo on a pistol only build allowing a little ammo versatility,at the same time you can get Boone and the first recon beret in the same town,making it stronger due to its bonus to critical hit chance already.

So easy to get and still so good

You mean that Boi

16 Holorifle

Most ammo efficient weapon of them all, and the best thing to come out of the Dead Money DLC.

Perhaps the best weapon out of every dlc ever

17 Lucky

Favorite sidearm for sure. Really cool looking and it has critical chance. High rate of fire and really awesome reload animation. Great gun.

18 Ballistic Fist

One hit anything in the wasteland! How can you not like it!

19 Mysterious Magnum

A badass revolver that plays the mysterious stranger's theme whenever it's drawn or holstered. Very nice looking and powerful.

Kill the lonesome drifter towards the beginning of the game for it. Worth it.

20 Dinner Bell

This gun is a pain to get but pays off EXTREMELY. Especially if you use a good load a magnum buckshot with shotgun surgeon and and stay back perks. The magnum buckshot/slugs makes this gun is one of the very few things a full sized death claw in the divide fears.

With the right shotgun perks this weapon is unstoppable

21 Pew Pew
22 Elijah's Advanced LAER

So good! How is this gun so low?

23 Q-35 Matter Modulator

My Energy Weapon of choice. Really, you could do better with Elija's Advanced LAER, but for the base game without DLC, best non-heavy Energy Weapon.

24 Knock Knock

Nothing more badass than a giant axe to purify wasteland with. Great for wasteland themed characters too.

"Knock, knock! "
"Who's there? "
"YOUR DEATH! "
