Greatest Halo Weapons of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Energy Sword

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!

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.

Yes it is amazing, but you only get to have a killing frenzy ( ten ten kills without dying) or ten kills also with dying with one energy sword

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

2 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.

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

3 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.

I used it a lot to play

4 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.

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

5 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.

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

Trusty and effective

6 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.

7 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.

Bang, bang, bang. The enemy is dead.

8 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.

The iconic Halo weapon that has the coolest mechanics.

9 Spartan Laser

The perfect counter to the overpowered vehicles.

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.

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

The Contenders
11 Incineration Cannon

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

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

12 Sentinel Beam

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

13 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

14 Plasma Cannon
15 Battle Rifle

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

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 Suppressor Rifle
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 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.

20 Lightrifle
21 Scattershot
22 Binary Rifle
23 Covenant Carbine
24 Brute Shot

A powerful, badass weapon that shreds

Why did no one else mention it?

The Knifle is ICONIC

25 The Plasma Pistol

Noob combo's greatest ally and is also one of the few utility weapons in Halo.
