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.

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.

It can kill most opponents in less than 5 hits. The bad part is you only get 100 hits

2 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.

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

Favorite in any halo close or far range it's a kill

3 Shotgun

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.

In Halo 5 this thing has amazing range for shotgun

I used it a lot to play

4 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!

You give me my sniper, and we won't have a problem.

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.

One of the best weapons ever

6 Gravity Hammer

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

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

Much better than energy sword for sure

So good for trolling in multiplayer

7 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.

8 Spartan Laser

The perfect counter to the overpowered vehicles.

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

9 Magnum

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

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.

10 Saw

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.

Should be higher on the list, honestly the SAW is underrated

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.

One word is needed to describe how fun this is!


Op when using the scareb skull

13 Red Plasma Rifle

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

It's actually a brute plasma rifle.

14 Plasma Cannon
15 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.

16 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.


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.

this is the greatest troll weapon

19 Lightrifle
20 Beam Rifle

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

21 Scattershot
22 Binary Rifle

Halo 4 weapon is so dominate

23 Boltshot
24 Needle Rifle
25 Covenant Carbine

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