Greatest Halo Weapons of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Energy Sword Energy Sword

It can kill most opponents in less than5 hits.the bad part is you only get 100 hits

Its design looks really cool and its really fun to use. Its possibly my favourite halo sword weapon in the game in my opinion. - UltraLunalaX

Shotgun > Energy Sword - DenverStylee

My favorite weapon in the game and sword

2 Sniper Rifle Sniper Rifle

I like the sniper rifle. It's a really cool weapon to use in halo 3 and its really fun to shoot others with it. Also its design is awesome! - UltraLunalaX

I like the sniper rifle because of its design. Especially in Halo 3 it's a massive style piece.

The Sniper Rifle is a terrific weapon in the hands of a master Halo player and it is fun to pick of enemies when they least expect it.

Very cool weapon

3 Rocket Launcher Rocket Launcher

SPNKr is OP as hell, especially the H2 version that locks on to vehicles and stationary turrets - DenverStylee

This is the most powerful weapon in my opinion, very useful. I like this better than the Energy Sword.

The two-barreled design is distinct and original! When, I see it, I think Halo. - KnightofLight

Favorite in any halo close or far range it's a kill

4 Assault Rifle Assault Rifle

Well balanced

The Assault Rifle felt powerful. Unlike Halo 3's Assault Rifle, this one actually was fun to use.

Its one of the most used guns in Halo 4 Multiplayer.

Reach and CE had the best ARs

5 Shotgun Shotgun

It looked really cool and felt like a powerful weapon with its kick and damage.

In Halo 5 this thing has amazing range for shotgun

I used it a lot to play

6 Spartan Laser Spartan Laser

It is one of the best weapons of unsc, it is also fun to use

7 Gravity Hammer Gravity Hammer

Much better than energy sword for sure

Its an awesome weapon because it delivers Instant Kills to almost any close opponent.

8 Magnum Magnum

Most overpowered weapon in halo history, but only in it's Halo: CE version.

Most fun weapon to use

This is op and I am a halo 1 player so this is the best weapon in the game

Halo Combat evolved only - htoutlaws2012

9 Saw Saw

Pretty much the only new halo 4 gun I actually like. Its very powerful and it isn't broken at all whatsoever - UltraLunalaX

Should be higher on the list, honestly the SAW is underrated - DenverStylee

One of the most powerful weapons in the Halo franchise. High rate of fire and good accuracy.

The only new gun in halo 4 that is not broken - htoutlaws2012

10 Incineration Cannon Incineration Cannon

Should beat energy sword, you bring a energy sword to a incinerator cannon fight and your going to die

This is almost as good as the Rocket Launcher in quality, should be higher.

The Newcomers

? Focus Rifle

The Contenders

11 Needler Needler

This thing is so powerful people HATE it. If you know what your doing you can beat people with Energy Swords and Rocket Launchers with a Needler

I love this weapon. I like how it takes a few seconds for the shots to make it's effect. - IronSabbathPriest

The iconic Halo weapon that has the coolest mechanics.

12 Sentinel Beam Sentinel Beam

Op when using the scareb skull

One word is needed to describe how fun this is!


13 Plasma Cannon Plasma Cannon
14 Red Plasma Rifle Red Plasma Rifle

Brute Plasma Rifle* FFS - DenverStylee

This is my favorite halo weapon of all time, it kicks so much ass in odst and halo2

15 Battle Rifle

Very cool design. Awesome against grunts.


16 Fuel Rod Gun Fuel Rod Gun

Bring the strongest explosive you have, reproduce it by 5, attach a clip for them and then mount the result into a gun as psychologically terrifying as the firepower you made. This is how I describe the Fueld Rod Cannon (or fuel rod gun).

Already, rocket launchers packs a big punch so imagine having 5 rods of pure destruction that can be reloaded as fast as the rate of fire. I am sure the Fuel Rod Cannon never came in multiplayer because they tought it was too powerful. Sure if's extremely rare to fijd but when you do.. oh boy.

The Fuel Rod Cannon had projectiles that could bounce of walls. Very annoying in some cases but very fun and deadly if you know how to use it.

17 Binary Rifle Binary Rifle

Halo 4 weapon is so dominate

18 DMR


Very east to aim with when hip firing

Best headshot weapon hands down

Hell man I used this gun almost everyday

19 Boltshot
20 Submachine Gun Submachine Gun

It was a mix of the Halo 2 Submachine gun and the Assault rifle. The fact that it had a scope made it even cooler.

This weapon was just fun to use and was pretty powerful.

21 Sticky Detonator

A pistol that shoots detonate able grenades is fun to use. You can either stick it to enemies and watch them run around hopelessly or you can turn it into a trap and explode enemies that get close enough.

22 Beam Rifle Beam Rifle

Don't know why this isn't on the list, but this is the best of all the sniper rifles.

23 Needle Rifle
24 Storm Rifle

Awesome against small groups of enemies.

25 SMG

Easy to use and you feel like a boss when you duel wield them

The smg has a high rate of fire, bad accuracy but is boss on small multipayer maps

26 Covenant Carbine

It has very good accuracy and pretty good damage in my opinion it’s the best marksman rifle in the game

27 Brute Shot

A powerful, badass weapon that shreds

Why did no one else mention it?

The Knifle is ICONIC

Best weapon ever, pretty much an instant win. only takes 3-4 shots to kill someone.

28 Plasma Launcher Plasma Launcher
29 Mounted Machine Gun Turret

Detaching this from the ground and going around shooting with it makes you feel like a true tank

30 Scattershot
31 The Plasma Pistol

Very OP when you use the overcharged power

32 M343A2 Minigun

Very powerful against hordes of enemies. Would reccomend to any noob or tryhard in multiplayer
