Best Team Fortress 2 Soldier Weapons

The Top Ten
1 The Black Box

Despite its one less clip, it can heal the soldier up to 20 health per rocket. It's a good all-rounder for beginners and pros, combining power and survivability. It is also beneficial in public games since no Medics can focus solely on you, especially when health kits are out of your reach. Even the design of the Black Box is cool and very battle-aesthetic. That's why it is my favorite soldier weapon.

To be honest, I don't know why people think that the 25% less clip size is really bad since it drastically increases the Soldier's survivability because of the healing. Also, Black Box + Conch = Medic in a box.

2 Rocket Launcher

Really helpful in very confusing situations and also it can help out a lot. I really suggest this weapon strongly for soldiers. It may be a stock weapon, but that doesn't mean you can't do awesome stuff. So go try it out!

I prefer this weapon over the Black Box. I tend to spam the fire button once I see an enemy, thus the extra rocket I think is helpful.

Balanced stats, high damage, good reload, good clip size. How does it lose?

3 Direct Hit

Very good with good aim, and engineers might rage-quit because of it destroying their sentry. It's difficult to use, but OP.

The Direct Hit is really good because if you can aim it right, it does insane damage as it does more damage.

If you have good aim, you can pretty much wreck the entire enemy team.

4 Beggar's Bazooka

This weapon has got to be in the top ten. A quick burst of three rockets can easily change the tide of battle. It's great for quickly killing a heavy from close distance, sniping the enemy medic, or simply spamming rockets all over the place.

And if you get the timing right, you can guarantee yourself three rockets ready to be spammed as soon as you enter the battlefield. How is this not a good weapon?

Actually, you CAN get ammo from dispensers, you just need to take another weapon in your hands.

5 Concheror

Heals your team, heals you constantly, and gives you a speed boost on use.

6 Market Gardener
7 Escape Plan

This is a great and very useful weapon in all escape situations.

Amazing for escapes after overextending.

8 Gunboats
9 Air Strike

The Air Strike's firing speed is increased by 65% if you're in midair. Combine it with the B.A.S.E. Jumper and spam rockets to your heart's content.

What are those menacing green things with a white trail behind them, and why do I feel like I should run?

It's not the most effective weapon in a soldier's arsenal (that would be the stock or Black Box), but it is surely the most fun.

10 The Original
The Contenders
11 Liberty Launcher

It's a great rocket for combos with the Reserve Shooter but it has low damage. It's great for rocket jumps.

Good weapon with fast rockets.

12 Buff Banner

Best soldier secondary. The meter takes a lot of damage to charge, though. But that is not really a downside if you are a good soldier. And mini crits are awesome.

Eh, I still prefer the Battalion's Backup for sentry buster, but it is still very good nonetheless.

13 Equalizer

Best melee weapon for soldier.

14 Rocket Jumper
15 Cow Mangler 5000

The alternate fire is great for sentry nests.

16 Reserve Shooter
17 B.A.S.E Jumper

It can slow down the speed. Then, there can be no damage from rocket jumping while slowing down.

18 Battalion's Backup
19 Pain Train
20 Righteous Bison

Okay, 20 max damage on a soldier weapon.

21 Mantreads
22 Half-Zatoichi
23 Disciplinary Action
24 Panic Attack
