Best Weapons on Halo: Reach

The Top Ten
1 Sniper Rifle (System 99D-S2 Anti-Materiel)

I use this sniper because it is unique. It's scope is first class, it's power as a sniper is unbeatable, it looks boss, and it's accuracy is AMAZING!

If you want to control the game, get good at sniping. Everybody I play with is terrified when I get my hands on this.

Hey, listen. I have seen people meleeing each other who are on the same team for this weapon with the Hemorrhage map. If you're taking it use it while you can

If you're a sniper this is THE weapon for you, pair it up with a shotty and you're good to go if you're ambushed.

2 Energy Sword

Energy sword is good for assassinations and heavy armored infantry but snipers can easily take you down. There is an easy solution. Get your own sniper rifle or any medium or long weapon( UNSC and covenant versions of rocket launcher, Spartan laser, focus rifle, needle rifle, dmr, UNSC versions of grenade launcher). Pick off the snipers in an epic sniper battle. Then pull out your sword and start assassination attempt

The Energy Sword is a lot stronger than the shotgun because its instantly a one hit kill. Also it does have more range because you can strike from a distance (like commando on Modern Warfare 2). Although it wastes quicker than the shotgun.

The energy sword has style and class and is great for killing the flood. But I do think the gravity hammer is better for killing brutes and elites and hunters. But the energy sword works good on them too.

I don't know about other people, but being rushed with a sword sends me into panic mode, due to the high damage and generally looking badass with one.

3 M90 CAWS Shotgun

While I don't think it is the best, it is the funnest. Nothing is greater than blasting away your buddies with one shot. Add the energy sword and zombies and the weapon becomes a outright classic weapon.

I know I can rely on my shotgun, it can do the job. When rushing my opponents, I shoot first once my shotgun is in range and finish them off with a melee

This gun is great b/c you can run up to someone, and without even trying, one show them.

Snipers are NOT a piece of crap. Now I agree the shotgun is cool but snipers are not noobs. Now if some guy uses one in extremely close range yeah they noobs

4 Gravity Hammer
5 M41 Rocket Launcher

I love this weapon! If I could give myself unlimited ammo on campaign, invincibility, and give myself weapons, I would get this and the shotgun. BEAST MODE!

I love this weapon as well I hope it replaces RPG 7. They should call it the double barrel bazooka

When you have one rocket left, give it to one of the marines (If you have any) in your vehicle. Lol So Cancer I have gotten about 4 on a scorpion.

6 M392 Designated Marksman Rifle

The DMR was the scapegoat of all Halo weapons. Many people criticized the weapon for replacing the Battle Rifle and SMG. Nevertheless, the DMR became a personal favorite weapon for many players, and it is one of my favorite. Efficient and gets the job done, always aim at the head.

The versatility of the gun is amazing, as it can quickly take enemies out at long range, and at short it can do damage. It has lots of ammo storage, and for the damage it does, I think it is a great weapon.

The DMR is a beast of a weapon! Few shots to the head and your dead. This gun is my absolute favourite weapon I use it whenever against whatever, nothing can stop this gun!

The Marksman is amazing. It destroys at close range, and the scope makes an effective weapon for sniping. It makes Covenants wet their little alien pants.

7 Grenade Launcher
8 Fuel Rod Cannon

What weapon is this I can't find it?

9 Needler

I destroy enemies with this baby. It's marvelous. Just uh couple rounds to a grunt and BOOM.

Have fun going to the doctors, I heard they use this as an alternative

Amazing gun that follows players and causes an explosion who couldn't love it at close-mid range I choose this over anything

10 Focus Rifle

Very fun weapon, which ironically is better in close range than in long range.

If your playing halo you can just put it on bottomless clip and you have an infinite laser

Really fun to use, and is hilarious when you actually get a kill

The Contenders
11 MA37 ICWS Assault Rifle

Where's the love for this one? It's quite versatile at close range as well as far range with short bursts. Personally, this gun is the one I will always choose over anything.

Sure, you can just chuck this away when you find another weapon, because lets be honest, who is going to fight someone with this? Not really anyone. which is why you should use it. people don't expect it to be used to actually kill people. I practiced with the thing and can kill people with under a clip.

Where's the love? This gun is very versatile and effective. The dmr is good, but at close range, you get rekt.

The dmr is good for me at close range as well as long range.

12 DMR

That gun helped me online I got through every body I come across.!

That is so right dude. $$$

13 Type-25 Carbine
14 Needle Rifle

Really good weapon this should be in the top 10 although its tought to aim after a couple of shots its really strong and also has a super combine explosion like the needler. If you thought a needler was over powered try one with a 2x scope.

It's like a sniper/dmr/needler thing... You can use it at long range or close range.

15 Spartan Laser

Anything one shot yes not a good ammunition store but I mean come on

16 Target Locator

Should be 3rd or 4th. I mean, it blows things up, it has more ammo than a rocket launcher/grenade launcher, and it makes a much bigger explosion for much more damage! Fun, right?

One word, boom!

17 Plasma Launcher
18 Plasma Pistol

Plasma pistol is too fun.

It has the best focus ever and can kill anything in 30 shots and less mostly 1 shot

19 Mark 2488 Magnetic Accelerator Cannon (Onager)

I wish there were a portable assault rifle version with unlimited ammo. You could bring it through the whole game. On the first level, you would get it and carry it as a third weapon. One shotkill and you could get on the Savhanna and just pow. Jorge lives, you don't die, and you are OP. And don't hate me for this comment.

It destroys that Cruiser just by hitting it in the gun. It's like a smaller version of a MAC. And, finally, it's the closest you get to a MAC. Oh yeah, and just one memorable quote comes from it- I need a weapon.

It was fun but I think it word be better classified as a vehicle than a weapon

20 Concussion Rifle
21 Plasma Turret

Dude I am sure this should be number 1 because I used it to kill 2 people at once.

22 Plasma Rifle

Try it, it can shred a solo target, don't try it on a group though. Leave that to the grenades.

23 7 Wood

It's the human gravity hammer, same abilities, way more fun though!

24 Shotgun

It's really fun

25 Machine Gun Turret

Because destroying people beats sniping every day.
