Top 10 Best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Weapons

The Top Ten
1 AK-47

This is also a great gun - best gun for Terrorist In my opinion, even if it is cheap. excpet it makes a sound like a bull dozer. You shoot it at someone, and everybody knows where you are. but other wise great, and in a way, it is the terrorist version of the m4a1s. my favourite gun to use as terrorist

The AK-47, is a powerful weapon. It is a one shot head shot no matter what, and if you learn it's spray pattern, it will be better than the awp.

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

2 M4A4

Why is the M4A4 here at 15 instead of like top 3. It can replace the AWP. Cheaper, avaliable at round 2 and accurate at distances, great for mid range but still excels at close and long, damage output is ok, larger mag and ammo reserve than M4A1-S, what the hell is the M4A4 doing at 15?

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

If you're a CT Player, and are outgunned, you want this gun. It's very accurate, looks cool, and has enough ammunition for clutches, unlike the M4A1-S.

3 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.

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.-

I don't care about the slightly larger spray pattern than the AUG. This thing can 1 shot kill via headshots, even with helmets, at any range. It has good enough accuracy (better than the AK), and a scope as well. This gun should be used way more often in Classic matches.

4 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.

Cheap and good pistol round.


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?

Definitely the best weapon. Can kill an opponent in one shot no matter where it hits (except for the legs). You can also get really long-range shots with it too. I don't know why this isn't #1.

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.

6 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.

This is a great gun. I just like it and use it a lot when I am CT. It shines in Comp, and the silencer helps a lot. some people use M4a1s, and then take the silencer off - but then you just lost the purpose of it. IT is a great gun for starters too, but if in the hands of an expert at this gun, no body can kill you, and I think it is wAY WAY better than AWP

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.

7 MP9

INSANELY underrated smg.
Amazing up close, good at medium range (MP7 is better for spraying at those ranges) great movement speed, a quick reload. It has a great jumping accuracy so try jumping around corners while firing to out peek opponents.
It's biggest drawback, like with the mac-10, is its fire rate coupled with a smaller mag size, so a bizon could more effectively stop a glock train, but in almost every occasion, I'd have this, over a bizon or mac-10.

Best gun in game


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.

Good choice if you need to defend a bomb site. The scope offers great precision and accuracy. Without a proper flashbang, enemies don't stand a chance if you use it properly. Lower cost and automatic fire makes it more versatile than the awp.

9 Five-Seven

The Five-Seven has a very high rate of fire with a small recoil, thus making it a great weapon to pull out and spray to hit a moving enemy. It is only $500 and is an instant KO if you hit the head, which is very feasible considering the large magazine and overall solid accuracy. The only downside is that it is a CT-exclusive pistol.

Great pistol for eco rounds on the CT side. It takes one headshot to take out a helmet, crazy good for the price tag at 500.

10 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.

People always gets mad when I use this in MM - because I always wreck them with this baby - cheap, accurate, run and gun, almost no recoil, insane firerate and huge ammo, nice damage what else do you need?

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

The Contenders
11 SSG 08

This one is a blast for its price. I have turned countless matches by buying the scout on forced rounds or when I had more money than my team in eco rounds. it is fast, accurate and deals plenty of damage for the cost. it's hard to master but when you play it confidently, you can deal with anything (except 5 man rushes :D)

This is my go to weapon when my team needs a awper but can't afford an awp, just shoot for the head and it's a faster awp, if you miss just one more body shot and easy kill.

Great when you need to jump shot people, and has amazing no-scope accuracy.

12 M249

It's like Negev, and it's funny to shoot with these.

13 Galil AR

Of all weapons this one makes the least effort for me to kill in all ranges, I just love this gun even more than AK-47, or M4, and I definitely think that it is more effective weapon than its famas (considered as equivalent) and has more ammo (35 is better than 30 or 25)

It's a very good gun! It kills fast and the recoil is so easy to control! It's my second favorite gun after the awp

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

14 P2000

It has 1 more shot!


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.

Its Precise its also good for flanking has enough ammo for a whole team if you use it properly.

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

16 MP7

For its price, it packs quite a punch and has good accuracy on close range, but not long range. Not long range at all. It also has a high rate of fire and low damage, but what did you expect from an SMG?

Good for anti-economy / "anti-eco" rounds, where your opponent will have no armor, thus is vulnerable to weak attacks, but aside from this has minimal to no functional usage at all.

Amazing accuracy, when this weapon is mastered, it will be excellent for headshots and great precise snipes from short distances.

Definitely a good all-around weapon, when used right, headshots will be guaranteed.

17 R8 Revolver

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.

It's a pistol that is better than a 5,000 dollar rifle
Need I say more?

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

18 Knife
19 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.

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

20 Sawed-Off

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.

This gun oh my gawd. When I first started this game, ALL I did was use it when I first started the game. Then, I guess you could say I SAW the light. It looks beautiful, but at the end of the day, its great damage does just not make up for the lack of range. It can be good, but very rarely, I would say that the NOVA or XM or even the Mag are better options.

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.

21 Desert Eagle

Surprisingly accurate at long range, 1 hit kill on a headshot, 2 hits on body. Beginners will likely hate this gun due to its difficult recoil, but it's an extremely valuable weapon at only $700.

If you're in a tight situation, this is definitely not the gun, but if you're on a pistol round this gun can be your best buddy.

It has excellent firepower, but low fire rate. Still, a great early game gun.

22 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

23 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!

24 UMP-45

I don't get why this awesome weapon is so low on the list. The UMP is basically a small rifle that works in almost every situation. The stats are awesome too: fairly high rate of fire, highest dps to armors out of all smgs, good first shot accuracy, second cheapest smg, high kill award, lightweight, and very easy to control. It is far superior to the P90 in my opinion as the UMP not only works well towards armors, but it is also very eco friendly; it pays for itself after 2 kills. The only downsides are its reload time and its mag size, but they are nothing compare to all the positivies it has. Overall, the UMP is no doubt the best smg in the game and it is also one of the best weapons in the game.

I don't know why but I have 2500 kills on my stattrack and its like armore Penetration like the m4... on long range horrible but there your deagle comes in

25 SCAR-20

Best gun ever

Good for sniping but can also be used for close range if you can click that fast
