Greatest Halo Weapons of All Time

The Top Ten Greatest Halo Weapons of All Time

1 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

I mean, it's so boss looking. It one-shots enemies. Its one of the only melee weapons. And it gets style points. HOW DO YOU NOT LOVE IT?!?!?

It looks awesome and works well, but the Rocket Launcher is better in terms of quality.

2 Rocket Launcher

There is no better feeling than nuking your opponent to kingdom come. - MasterBeef

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

3 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.

There's no weapon in any game that comes close to this!

4 Shotgun

Shreds through the opposition like the wind through a desert. - MasterBeef

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

5 Assault Rifle

The most iconic weapon in all of Halo, everyone knows this silhouette. - MasterBeef

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.

Well balanced

6 Spartan Laser

The perfect counter to the overpowered vehicles. - MasterBeef

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

7 Gravity Hammer

Way more fun than the energy sword. It is ridiculous fun to smash your opponents six feet under with one swing. - MasterBeef

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

Much better than energy sword for sure

8 Magnum

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

Bang, bang, bang. The enemy is dead. - MasterBeef

Halo Combat evolved only - htoutlaws2012

Damage per hit is high

9 Saw

A fantastic addition to the rapid-fire club, this beats tears like no other and has one insanely dope design. - MasterBeef

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

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 Needler

Halo 3's stands out to me as it fires fast, accurately, and hella coolly. - MasterBeef

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.

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Sentinel Beam

One word is needed to describe how fun this is!


Op when using the scareb skull

13 Plasma Cannon
14 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

The most used mid-range weapon, this gun has appeared in every Halo except 1, Reach, and ODST. - MasterBeef

Very cool design. Awesome against grunts.


16 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

Halo 4 weapon is so dominate

18 Beam Rifle

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

19 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.

this is the greatest troll weapon

20 DMR

Very east to aim with when hip firing

Best headshot weapon hands down

Hell man I used this gun almost everyday

Best weapon ever when pvp, campaign, and pretty much everything. Great for medium and long range sniping. If I could have one weapon in the game, it would be the DMR.

21 Boltshot
22 Needle Rifle
23 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.

24 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.

25 Storm Rifle

Awesome against small groups of enemies.

26 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

27 Covenant Carbine

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

28 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

33 Focus Rifle
