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.

I thought gobi would have been up there. But this rifle and the fatman are amazing. Here is my rating on anti material rifle:
Fun factor- 10/10
User friendly-7/10
Power- 10/10
Versatility- 8/10

2 Oh Baby!

Probably the most overpowered melee weapon in the game.

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

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.

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

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

4 Ranger Sequoia

The only direct access to this gun is through turning in chief Hanlon, which sucks.

But it's the best revolver in the game.

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.

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

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

Get the unique Medicine Stick variant and be happy for your purchase.

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

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!

8 Plasma Caster

Might be the best energy weapon in the game.

9 All American

Excells on any build.
The Grunt Perk makes it melt enemies on any range.

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!

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.

12 Riot Shotgun

There's no way not to love this gun.

Good weapon for any encounters.

13 YCS/186

The Anti-Material-Rifle of the Energy Weapon class. And at least equally as fun.

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

14 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.

15 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.

16 Holorifle

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

Possibly the best general combat Energy Weapon in the game.

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.

21 Pew Pew
22 Elijah's Advanced LAER
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.
