Greatest Halo Weapons of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Energy Sword

I always wish to get an Energy Sword in Halo 5. Just kill elites with Energy Swords, and attack opponents and elite bosses, and there doomed.

How could you not like this weapon? You run so fast with it (because it doesn't weigh you down) and it kills nearly everything in one hit!

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

2 Shotgun

I must say, the flood was absolutely killing me on one level in Halo 2, until I found the shotgun. I cleared a level in only five minutes with this bad boy!

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

Shreds through the opposition like the wind through a desert.

3 Gravity Hammer

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

No explanation is necessary, but the problem with this weapon is that it runs out of energy just too quickly.

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

4 Rocket Launcher

A weapon with as much explosion power as two grenades. Something that can home onto annoying vehicles. OMG, what kind of weapon could be this awesome?

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.

5 Needler

Halo 3's stands out to me as it fires fast, accurately, and coolly. Also, out of every Halo weapon, this one is the one that screams Halo the most, at least to me. In what other franchise can you fire pink homing needles that blow up when enough are in an opponent? No, really, I'd like to know, because I'm pretty sure Halo is the only one.

This thing is so powerful people HATE it. If you know what you're 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 its effect.

6 Assault Rifle

Halo Infinite's Assault Rifle is better than Halo 3's Assault Rifle. Halo 3 Assault Rifle is weak. Halo Infinite Assault Rifle is better because you can get more kills with the Halo Infinite Assault Rifle.

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

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

7 Sniper Rifle

Brute chieftains are absolutely horrible with their epic speed and gravity hammers, and the option to headshot them 1hk from a hundred paces is just insane.

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.

8 Magnum

The thing can kill an elite in only 3 hits! Completely semi-auto with a decent scope, this thing is amazing.

Magnum is great, but this is in the CE version, only three shots, it is insane.

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

9 Sentinel Beam

Worst. In halo 5, it can't even kill an opponent driving a mongoose. So slow. You cannot love this one.

10 Saw

Granted, The Answer is the absolute best variation of this gun, doing almost twice the damage and having a better scope, but the normal SAW is amazing. The ability to shred through Promethian Knights with only a few bullets is a feat unmatched by any other gun.

Halo 5's SAW is fantastic, impossible to hate. The Answer is the best SAW, not just that, best Halo 5 weapon. The Answer is also annoying to other opponents.

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

The Contenders
11 Incineration Cannon

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

Halo 4 Incineration Cannon is better than Halo 5's Incinceration Cannon because Halo 4's Incineration Cannon is Stronger.

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

12 Plasma Cannon
13 Brute Shot

A powerful, badass weapon that shreds

Why did no one else mention it?

The Knifle is ICONIC

14 Red Plasma Rifle

It's actually a brute plasma rifle.

This is my favorite halo weapon of all time, it kicks so much ass in odst and halo 2

15 Spartan Laser

The perfect counter to the overpowered vehicles.

16 Suppressor Rifle
17 Battle Rifle

Do you guys that the more powerful the hit is the better its is well hahaha instant kill weapons are terrible this is halos best weapon you have to think strategically to use it, not like any of you energy sword rocket launcher or stuff like that fanatics would know this is halos best gun fun to useful everything.

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

Very cool design. Awesome against grunts.

18 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.

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.

20 Lightrifle
21 Concussion Rifle
22 Mounted Machine Gun Turret

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

23 Beam Rifle

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

This thing does so much damage! I once 1HKed a hunter with this! The only problem is it has no ammo.
