Greatest Halo Weapons of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Energy Sword Energy Sword

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.

My favorite weapon in the game and sword

Its been in all the Halo games (Not useable in Halo: CE) and it's fun to use.

2 Rocket Launcher Rocket Launcher

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

3 Sniper Rifle Sniper Rifle

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.

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

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

Super O.P. Can pierce armor and is a 1 shot kill

4 Assault Rifle Assault Rifle

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

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

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

Much better than energy sword for sure

8 Magnum Magnum

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

Halo Combat evolved only - htoutlaws2012

Damage per hit is high

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

9 Saw Saw

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

This is the most OP weapon EVER

Super OP

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 Contenders

11 Needler 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 Red Plasma Rifle Red Plasma Rifle

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

13 Sentinel Beam Sentinel Beam

One word is needed to describe how fun this is!


14 Plasma Cannon Plasma Cannon
15 Fuel Rod Gun Fuel Rod Gun

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.

16 Battle Rifle
17 Binary Rifle Binary Rifle

Halo 4 weapon is so dominate

18 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.

19 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.

20 Beam Rifle Beam Rifle

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

21 Plasma Launcher Plasma Launcher
22 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.

23 Mounted Machine Gun Turret

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

24 Boltshot
25 Scattershot
26 Needle Rifle
27 Storm Rifle
28 The Plasma Pistol

Very OP when you use the overcharged power

29 SMG

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

30 Covenant Carbine

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