Top 10 Best Guns in Phantom Forces

The Top Ten
1 KS23M

This gun is a good shotgun, good for close or medium range. The DB shotgun is slightly better. The DB is good for shotgun sniping but has low ammo and needs a few seconds to reload. The KS23M deals a lot of damage for close and medium range, has a fast reload, and is a good gun.

A good shotgun which allows you to reliably devastate people at mid-range. Double the fun when you use flechette ammo.

Probably the best shotgun in the game. It can one-shot anywhere and can be better than snipers at times.


- Very high RoF of 900 RPM.
- Fast normal reload for a bullpup, although not the best.
- Can pick up ammunition from most assault rifles and some carbines.

- High ammunition consumption, even if the user has good trigger control.
- Slow empty reload time.
-Obstructive iron sights. It is recommended to replace them with an optic when possible, such as the Reflex, Kobra, or Coyote sights.
- Average range for an assault rifle.
- Moderate-high recoil.

This is probably my favorite gun to use at all times (except for Mirage TDM). The fire rate is really insane, it's very easy to handle, and it's a great gun overall.

I recommend the attachments: muzzle brake, Barska Electro or Coyote sight, green laser, and vertical grip. But that's my own opinion. You decide what you want on this FAMAS.


This gun is great. It's not as good as it used to be, but it has many reasons to use it over the AUG A1, mainly the bigger mag. The main selling point is that it's pretty fun to use.

This is probably the 2nd best LMG in the game next to the SCAR HAMR. 42 bullets, good recoil, sustained damage, good for close, medium, or long range. I suggest you use a Delta sight and Muzzle Brake for the basics. Good gun.

The default iron sights are really good, with just the right amount of zoom. Recoil while scoped is pretty manageable.

4 Honey Badger

The best setup is EOTECH X2, folding grip, and green laser. It gets rid of most recoil and preserves insane damage. Did I mention that you're not detected on the radar with this?

The Honey Badger is amazing. It shoots really fast, reloads quickly too, and the recoil for me is quite manageable. It's the ultimate killing machine.

Absurd damage. On default, it has a 0.8 TTK if I had to guess. Sounds epic, with an internal suppressor. I personally don't like the default sight and would recommend something like the OKP-7. It's a rarely used sight, very underrated.

5 MK-11

The MK-11 is an insanely good DMR, with a high rate of fire, great accuracy, high damage, and a 2-shot kill to the torso at close range and a 2-shot kill to the head from anywhere. Load it with the Phantom round, and it can one-shot kill to the head from over 100 studs and easily two-shot kill to the torso at any range.

Great gun. It can perform well at any range, provided you have the right optic. Since it's semi, I'd recommend a Muzzle Brake instead of a Compensator. You can't go wrong with a Stubby Grip, and a laser is good. For ammo, I'm too broke to say anything.

The MK-11 is a gun which many low levels overlook. If they do use it, they don't build it to its strength and instead add a suppressor on it, which lowers the damage, thereby ruining the delicate balance this gun has.

It's better to be heard than to suffer from lower damage with this gun.

6 MP5K

Use 10mm rounds and you'll be unstoppable. High fire rate PDW with 3-shot potential, light and fast reloading.


I don't have this gun, but I've picked it up a few times, and it is monstrous. I have over 150 kills on it and have unlocked several attachments on a gun I don't own. That says something about how good this gun is.

You can mess people up real bad with this bad boy. I racked up more than 15,000 kills in total with this bad boy simply because I like it and it's that good.

This could be a great gun for you if you aren't into the AK47. It has less recoil, but also less damage. It's still great overall.

8 M79 Thumper

The best secondary in the game! It packs a punch from close to upper-medium range. It only has one bullet loaded at a time, but pretty much all the shots you will launch are one-hits.

This shouldn't be a secondary weapon. Run around and wipe the map from medium to close range. Love it.

9 Mosin Nagant

I think it's a good gun because it can shred someone at long range, but you can also run around with it. And with the SAWED-off as your secondary, I'm still running around with this gun at level 227.

I bought it at rank 23ish with a Ballistics Tracker and ACOG, and I immediately got a 36-10 game, my best ever. It's comparable to a Steyr Scout, except 6k cheaper. Although the RPM is slightly slower, the Steyr Scout 4-shots at the limbs, while the Mosin 2-shots.

It's easier to use than the Steyr Scout, as some people regret spending credits to get the Steyr Scout. It's cheaper, has a 2-shot torso kill, and a one-shot headshot kill. It's probably the jack of all trades.

10 L85A2

I use this gun all the time considering I just unlocked it last rank, and already have 983 kills with it.

Low recoil, decent damage, and all in all a fun gun to kill people with.

One of the best assault rifles in the game. It has a good fire rate, recoil, and damage. It can be used easily in close quarters combat and mid-quarters combat.

The Contenders
11 M16A4

One burst! One! This thing shreds through your enemies. You want close quarters? Pull twice on the trigger, and the guy is deleted. It can perform well at medium ranges too! If you don't like burst, it might not be for you, but remember, it's an M16A3 upgrade.

This gun is a killing machine for me. Although it is a burst rifle, at medium to close range, you could almost kill someone with two clicks. And with the right modifications, it can have very high accuracy.

Here are my mods:

Optics: Comp Aimpoint
Barrel: Compensator
Underbarrel: Vertical Grip
Other: Green Laser

12 G17
13 TEC 9

The recoil is insane, but if you add the extended stock and long barrel, it is good! Also decent with hollow point.

Extremely fast fire rate, good damage, and one of the best secondary weapons.

Perfect secondary for BFG. Uncontrollable recoil though.

14 KRISS Vector

I only picked four guns. Out of the four, the Vector is definitely the best. It kills so fast and has no recoil besides a slight vertical kick when you first fire it.

The only problem is the 26 bullets in the mag. This, combined with its 1200 RPM, makes it hard to shred more than 2-3 people without running out of ammo. That's why I use a Tec-9 as my secondary. It should be able to finish off whoever is left after your Vector destroyed everyone else.

Easily my favorite and the best gun in the game. It has a 1200 fire rate and decent damage for an SMG. You can use it at all ranges (though it is a little sketchy at long ranges). It has practically no recoil.

The only downside is that it doesn't have a lot of ammo, but it kills so easily that you can pick up more.

15 Remington 700

One of the overlooked snipers (for some reason). This gun can be insane at times. With the straight-pull bolt, you don't even have to scope out. Not the best, but really good.

So good. I love using this with an ACOG on Metro. Once you get used to the spread of the gun, you never miss a shot on any map!

Amazing sniper with great damage, and I love it.


It's the best gun ever. I almost used it every time, even though I'm still rank 33. I have over 300 kills with it. The best attachments for the SCAR-L are the Delta or Reflex sight, Muzzle Brake, and Green Laser. It's a good gun, with low recoil, and you unlock it at rank 16. Best gun ever.

The best gun in the game. It has a pretty fast TTK and virtually no recoil. I pre-bought it and do not regret it. I have over 200 kills with this gun and love it. I run EOTech 552, ARS Suppressor, Skeleton Grip, and Blue Laser. Absolutely amazing gun.

I equip this gun. Great damage. I love the sound. It looks good with the blue laser and the Mars sight. The Mars sight, in my opinion, is the best sight to put on this weapon.

17 MP5SD

Suppressed MP5, do I need to say more?

18 BFG 50

Any one-shot sniper is good, but the BFG is the best single-shot sniper in the game. Along with the NTW-20 (a beast as well), this thing has great accuracy, insanely high damage, great penetration, and a relatively fast ROF (rate of fire) considering it's a single shot. Great for hipfire in CQC too, as it has high mobility.

This thing is awesome. I think you should unlock it at a higher level. It has amazing damage and accuracy. Its range is great. It is really heavy, but when you snipe, most of the time you are still.

Goes boom boom, only has 1 ammo in the chamber, insta kill, but long reload time. I don't recommend this gun for starters because of how hard it is to use at medium range. But for maps like Mirage, this gun packs a punch. However, I recommend saving up to buy the M107 instead of this gun.

19 AK74
20 Intervention

A good sniper that can prove effective at almost any range, provided you have good aim.

Best gun on the list. If you put good attachments on it, you are unstoppable at any range.

How is this rank 0? Top 3 best sniper in the game. Very versatile, one-shot at medium range.

21 Dragunov SVU

Unfair is all I have to say here. This monster DMR, categorized as a sniper rifle, is an absolute beast. Very high damage, great ROF (rate of fire), good accuracy and penetration, and high mobility make this a great choice for any less experienced snipers who may need to go into CQC at some point.

Insane, way too many bullets loaded at one time to truly be fair. Nearly a DMR but deals a bunch of damage. I recommend not using a normal sniper scope but instead using something more for medium range, like the Comp Aimpoint.

It's nice that you don't need the S bolt pull, but it has moderate damage and is a bulky rifle.

22 MP7

Very good SMG. High fire rate, great ranged performance, and great damage. Overall, a very great gun, with high penetration and mobility as well.

No recoil and the fire rate is extremely high. It can assassinate a high-profile target without a sound if you use a suppressor. I loved it until I got addicted to the MP5.

It can be quite overpowered (OP) when you're used to the reloading time. Gets easy headshot kills in an instant.

23 M60

Very good gun, high damage, high range, and manageable recoil. This is definitely a more underrated LMG. Throw a suppressor or muzzle brake on it, get a grip, and find a good sight, and it can be a monster.

Pros: High damage, very high penetration (monstrous on Warehouse), and decent recoil.

Cons: Heavy (so very low mobility) and low ROF (rate of fire), so it is not great in CQC (close-quarters combat).

Amazing gun! It can be effective at long range if you have a good setup. 100 bullets are nice. Good suppression. I say Mini Sight (or choice), Muzzle Brake, Stubby Grip, Green Laser, None.

24 RPK

Awesome penetration and damage. Awesome sound too. I highly recommend using it. I pre-bought it and still don't regret it.

High damage, high penetration. Good gun but high recoil. Just add a muzzle brake.

I picked it up a few times and it can wall bang like crazy.

25 Scar Hamr

I am saving up for the SCAR HAMR. I just need a few more ranks until I have enough credits to buy it early! I am a horrible sniper and am more of an assault person. I choose LMGs because they are like assault rifles with the same damage and a high magazine capacity (although a little bit more recoil).

The Colt LMG is great for starters, and with a good suppressor, you will have little recoil. I've gone through the entire list, watched some videos, looked up all the statistics, and found that the SCAR HAMR was one of the best LMGs. I can't wait until I get it!
