Best Weapons in Modern Warfare 2

The Top Ten


Clearly best gun in the game, only flaw is ammo but scavenger or extended mags can remove that flaw leaving the scar unbeatable, regardless range its recoil is almost 0%, the acr compared to scar is pretty good, its just the acr has low damage and takes too long to kill, especially medium-short range

When I was playing on Multiplayer, I always used the AK47 and I only got 2-6 kills a round. Someone at my school said that the Scar-H is the best gun so I tried it out myself and now I'm getting a whole lot more kills, the only bad thing about this gun is that it has only 60 bullets total. Overall, this gun has a very low recoil and a lot of damage to players. I would prefer extended mags or scavenger if I were going to use it though.

Tied with the TAR-21 for damage but more accurate and unlocked earlier in the game, very powerful rifle in the right hands

This is the best weapon because it has very high accuracy, very high damage very low recoil, and moderate fire rate. It is best with extended mags. The only problem is that you will need scavenger if you want attachments on it because it only comes with 60 rounds (3 magazines).


Good at close range and long range. Op and with holo is better lol

Best gun in the game in my opinion. Extremely accurate, very rapid, easy to kill with. The only thing that could make it better is more damage

Although the ACR has relatively low damage, the incredibly low recoil will ensure that more shots will hit, allowing very quick kills. Its recoil is so low, it fact, that it can easily be fired full-auto at long range and still hit with most of the rounds. It is extremely reliable and is useful in just about every possible in-game scenario.

Awesome gun, has great accuracy, easy to fire, and has great range. The only problem is its for people who are a very high level, but that shows haw good it is.


Nothing beats the thrill of a one shot one kill, or a good trick shot!
Plus, sniping with an intervention is for pros. Barrettes are for noobs.

I love owning people with this gun. I quick scope, no scope, and hard scope all round best

Quick scope, hard scope, jump scope, switch scope, any scope this gun is very well able of doing its 1 shot kill 82 percent of the time 96 with FMJ's and is a very well rounded gun with a close range secondary this can be nuke capable as I've proved 20 or so times

This is, by far, my favorite weapon. VERY VERY long range, excellent damage, and my favorite part is the bolt action. It is the way you become better with sniper rifles, as you need dead accuracy, and at least a quick shot to kill.

But that being said, I don't trick shot and I'm biased towards sniper rifles.


This is by far the Best gun I have ever used in the history of video games. I know that the fire rate is really cheesy, but the damage it does is wicked. The not I can understand the scar being the best, but the car? Seriously? I I just can't understand that.

Even though the russains made this baby in the 70's it still rocks everyone's socks. MW2 would not be the same with out this gun. And if you put silencer and red dot with stopping power and commando this will be a monster.

The best weapon... This gun is a great gun and it makes me don't wanna prestige. I love everything about this gun! However I have to say that the Silence reduces too much range.

I admit its not the best gun in the game, due to poor accuracy but I voted for it because its my fav, clearly the best looking weapon ever created imo


The weapon has high firing rate. It also has one of the best iron sights and has the best accuracy and damage possible. It also very powerful and can damage enemies at any distance. Also can be handled easily.

UMP45 is the best all-round gun in the game. It's unlocked early and it owns at close range, and still has good damage at long.

My favorite weapon, very powerful with low recoil. Is also good with silencer.

The ump has to be the best gun because of its versatility. Its best with the silencer and is a good gun to be used to get kill-streaks. Stealthiest submachine gun in the whole game when silenced. Recommend you use it if you haven't.


Long range, One shot kill at any range... There is no better lie than this..

SPAS-12 is really a cool weapon to use, but it is a shotgun and it can hardly be called a long range gun or a one kill weapon at "any range" but like most shotguns it does kills in one shot at close range. (but not always)

If you are looking for Shotguns my best suggestion would be "STRIKER" more bullets per mag and Better rate of fire making perfect for room clearing close combats.. !

Sprays hard, long range, pump action but fast shooting, lots o ammo, and one shot kill at any range, beast gun and its secondary. All the things that my penis has

The SPAS is a all-around good gun for sure the best shotgun in the game.

Best 1-hit kill range of all shotguns, regardless of what the stats say


How is this not THE BEST weapon! It easily is the strongest, most efficient assault rifle. I must admit, you actually have to be good at aiming to use the gun which most Call of Duty players aren't. That's why everyone calls it a "noob gun", because they get ripped on by it yet can't use it themselves. Sub Machine guns are noob weapons.

It's a beast. You need some skill to use the bursts and aim quickly. When used properly, this lovely looking gun kills faster (and over longer range) than scar, tar, acr, ump, etc.

Best gun in the game. Excellent accuracy, range, and very little recoil. Fire rate takes time getting used to, but this gun is essentially a one shot kill from any distance with the stopping power perk applied.

Another three round burst gun basically the same as the M16A4. Best attchment anything really but red dot owns.


If you master it, its the only weapon the is great at short, medium and long range. Its great with a silencer and fmj because its the only weapon the suffers very little from the use of a silencer.

Two hit kill w/ stopping power. Be sure NOT to use silencer because it really sucks. If you have a decent trigger finger or mod you should be able to do very good with this gun. Best attachment holographic, red dot, or extended mags. Its shotgun attachment can really rape on hardcore as it can shoot the farthest of any shotgun.

so frexin powerful I love this gun like I kill so much people with this

It doesn't waste bullets by shooting 1 bullet at a time, and with shotgun attachment it's easy around corners


The Tar-21 is a brilliant gun for long, medium and short range. The damage is superb and people who say tat it has bad recoil it doesn't really matter because once youve got the aim on your enemy they'll be dead in a sec. Plus it's iron sightsare great which is a good advantage!

it does the most damage per second so anyone who doesn't pick the tar is mathematically wrong. not to mention is does the same damage as the scar but has a longer clip. it also has the mars scope for better accuracy and with silencer there is very little recoil

This is my favorite gun in the game but not the best. It's very accurate, has the most damage per second, and looks cool haha. The Tar just owns in every aspect and I've gotten over 20 nukes with just this gun in one night. Best attachment is holo sights, FMJ, and silencer.

Tar-21 is special for many reasons, the most obvious reasons are damage and stopping power. Range of this Assault rifle is fair enough and it the rate of fire is not that bad for such a high damage it inflicts. At greater range its rate of fire makes it better than fancy weapons such as scar...

M93 Raffica

This gun I owe about 50K kills, I use this gun with AKIMBO's more than any gun it is so extremely difficult to get the draw on in close-mid range combat that not even old models can touch it, In my mind number two but I'm a good critic so I'll stick to the rating rules

PRO: Pretty strong, extremely fast reload and very low recoil.
CON: Bad iron sight, low magazine size and 3 round burst.
OVERALL: 8.4/10

This Weapon is that what the mp9 in mw3 is it's a ptimary weapon but in the secondary slot.. The iron sight is a pistol iron sight and I really enjoy that it is an m16a4 but in compact.
Really love the m9 series

The Contenders

Barret .50cal

1 This Gun Is U.S. Army Weapon too! Its U.S. infactory Soliders only too! by the Military Police too!

barret rips mofo's up with a thermal and FMJ

the barret is amazing one shot one kill add me on ps3 staber2009

Boom it is good for first time players


Guys, you'll drop anyone with this little beauty. Quick as hell on the trigger and low recoil. Half decent aiming and YOU WILL DESTROY. Like, you could snipe with this thing if you put a scope on it. Put me in a fight with the best Call of Duty player with ACR and give me the USP, erry time I win. This gun doesn't even need your number one spot, 'cause it know's y'all is ignant, 'cause the USP is your answer to everything! Zombie apocalypse? USP! Terrorist threat? USP. Hey baby, can you give me the good lovin'? Hell yeah, 'CAUSE I GOT MY damn USP!

It is awesome in the right hands. I get like half my kills every game with it

Good with tac knife and good for cqb


RPD= extreme power and perfect accuracy if fired similiar to the FAL. Hip fire mows down enemies like a shotgun with steady aim perk. Great gun to shoot through walls with. Shoots through cement blocks with fmj added. single shot kill in hardcore. Thermal scope is near perfect after a little practice and technique.

It's simply the best. Bursting this gun makes it a true winner. A 2 hit kill at all ranges with SP, best iron sight in the game, 100 round clip and it looks cool. The RPD is a winner.

Killer gun for mowing lots of foes! I Great open sights. With just a gip its beast.

Better than the AUG-HBAR If you mow down a lot of enemies at a time often


Basically kills everyone on the map, very good weapon.

Nukes suck, never use them

This thing is good to use but that does not mean you can call it in anytime you want you must be vary skilled in combat. Ends the game when you use it. Hard to get the killstreeks

25 kills in a row and your done

M4 Carbine

this gun is the first you get and is easy to get good with. even without slate of hand on this still does not take long to reload. I use Red dot all though the iron sights rock.
perks I use slate of hand pro, hard line pro (because there is no need for stopping power) ninja pro because I can sneak in and kill and heart beat sensors are the stupidest thing in the game so I don't like getting killed by them.

Hands down best gun in the whole Call of Duty franchise very early unlock low recoil superb range and great damage top any gun in the game the scar doesn't have enough bullets per clip and the acr doesn't have enough damage best gun in Call of Duty history

For all the people who use the acr, use probably haven't tried the m4a1. It has the 3rd best accuracy next to acr and the famas. The m4 is a lot faster than the acr but the acr has a slight difference of accuracy. The m4a1 rocks in mw2.

Awesome gun to kill with, and with the red-dot sight, this gun can give you many kills. Only drawback is the clip size


With stopping power and ninja you're fast and powerful enough to take down opponents at close range, if you can get your burst on target. People criticise the burst weapons as noon guns but they require a lot of skill because of the delay between bursts. But if you can use this well and couple it with a good shotgun secondary, you're tough to take down

This gun is awesome on Wasteland Map with stopping power, red dot and silencer. Camp just in front of machine gun pit and take down those suckers at distance and mid range. Usually get at highest kill / death ration on this map if not win.

M16A4 with Grenade launcher, heartbeat sensor
Striker with red dot site, grip
Bling pro
Stopping power pro (or any, I usually just use this)
Commando pro
I don't even need to use the nuke, my average is 35/2 in a game

I suck at this game, but since getting this gun I get about 5 kills per match rather than the 1 or 2 from martyr grenades. Great at long range with red dot. So-so in close quarters.


Tac-Knife is probably the best on this

I ball so hard with the 44-Magnums


If this was a assault riffle it would be number one, I think it should be but its not mot choice any gun with perfect accuracy and two shot kill is godly in my mind

ALways thought it should be an assault rifle and not an LMG, but always loved it. Very Deadly, and very accurate.

With lightweight, this is unstoppable, its a complete monster, can call anything and anyone and has exceptional range

This gun is a 2 shot kill at any range, has very low kick, and a decent fire rate. Has to be the best gun in the game.

Model 1887

People say the spas-12 has more range. But I tested the model, and it beat the spas-12 by a long shot! AKIMBO? Beast! Double the power, and this is most usefull at rust. Because the level is small. No doubt that you will be in First, Second, or Third because the model is the best shotgun ever made in " Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2!

May be I am a bit funny this time, but regardless of other reasons which I am not sure about, I love to use Model 1887 for its stylish reload mechanism...

since the patch, not as good as they used to be, but still strong, and actually has better range with a single Model 1887 without fmj

insane range and best accuracy of ALL shotguns very powerful what more can you ask


Possibly the most satisfying gun to use. You might think you're cool with your broken ump setup, but you're nothing to the goldeneye-style akimbo MP5K

To me it is OP, when I use this gun, I wI'll get 50+ kill and sometimes 100+ killz.

One of the bestn SMG's in the world


A smi auto sniper that is iconic and good and is 1 or 2 shot/shots to kill.

I can quick scope pretty well with the Barrett or intervention but with this gun I get double the kills! Close range it's fantastic as well. 2 shot with or without fmj and you can spam it and it's also a headshot machine I can back that up by saying I got the fall camo 5 days into using it. I personally use extended mags or thermal. So underrated and if you haven't used it before, I suggest you do!

HOW is this so low? It's the best sniper ever, kind of like the FAL

I couldn't decide between m-16 a4 or m4a1 so I picked this it is beast

Throwing Knife

Awesome weapon

Best way to get muli kills

Already with you dude
(or dudett)


Good gun, can sometimes kill as quick as the ump but other times cant kill at all it seems. It has a huge clip size and can dominate in ground war on close quarters maps. Best attachment is the silencer, red dot, and akimbo, yes akimbo is very good on it.

It has rapid fire, and can easily kill people. It has good accuracy, and just for some reason, it's extremely fun to shoot this gun.

Great for using akimbo P90s because of its large mags. Works better with steady aim. Get use to using akimbo P90s and you will be a GOD!

Silencer and extended mags


It is low range, but if you get close to them, they die of one shot, my friends rage at me for using this gun.

The AA-12 is an very low ammunition capacity extremly close range beast
