Top Ten Worst Halo Guns


The Top Ten

1 Plasma Pistol

On Multiplayer, I agree, this weapon sucks, but on Legendary Campaign, it's a beast

Playing campaign single player legendary, Jackal overcharges shot, boom shields gone. Go behind cover, shields recover, come out, ANOTHER overcharged shot from the jackal, flipping brute or elite comes in and effortlessly kills me.

Unless you use it to either drop shield for a headshot or stun vehicles, its borderline useless.

Unless you use a sniper rifle to shoot someone, yeh it is useless. That's the point of the weapon and it makes it good!

I love Hitler

2 Magnum

The magnum sucks in 3 its got a huge kick and a loud bang but does nothing, it's so slow and you can't even scope in with it like on every other halo game, I couldn't even head shot grunts with this thing.

This gun kicks a$$ in halo combat evolved - lukeweber

The halo 2 pistol was bad but the halo 3 pistol is a beast if your in the right range its really good and the halo reach pistol was really good but the halo 4 pistol was slightly weaker however it did not get any worse after that and the halo 5 pistol got stronger and good but very well balened

It's pretty much inferior to the DMR in every capacity, especially accuracy. In Halo 4 it also loses to automatic weapons.

3 Concussion Rifle

Simply put, the concussion rifle is merely a lighter fuel rod gun. - Canuck101

It arcs from gravity and really doesn't have the punch it needs to be effective

Not true if your a good marks men it's a beast

4 Energy Sword with Zero Energy

This really shouldn't count because the sword is Out Of Ammo so really your swinging an EMPTY weapon - Zombieman99

This is like saying a rocket launcher without ammo is useless, which it is, but this list is for loaded weapons!

An energy sword without ammo is just as bad as a sniper rifle without ammo. You can't put a weapon on a list that "doesn't have ammo".

Being killed by an enemy's who lunges and slaps you to death is so funny and humiliating though

5 Plasma Rifle

Okay who in their right mind put this here?! The plasma rifle is one of the BEST weapons in the game! Especially when it's duel wielded - Zombieman99

Pretty much all the other guns on this list are awesome to use. The Brute Shot is an amazing weapon, dual wield SMG's/Magnums are a fantastic combo and a charged plasma pistol, along with a precision weapon, makes an epic duo.
The plasma rifle is just bad though, it takes a long time to kill someone after their shields. This and the Plasma Repeater=bad.

You're not SUPPOSED to kill someone with it, your supposed to use it to drop their shields and finish them off with a headshot or melee.

How can this be on the worst weapons list! This is a CLASSIC fan favorite!

6 Assault Rifle

Who the hell put this weapons on here, it's a classic.

This Assault Rifle isn't really useful, in long-range or in short-range. The Rifle takes about a whole clip just to kill 2 Grunts, this gun should be placed as the worst gun.

Low accuracy, bullets fly everywhere. Very overrated, good at taking out shields, but there's already another rapid fire weapon in the SMG. Would not use it during any campaign or match on heroic or higher difficulty. - Canuck101

Need lots of ammo to do anything

7 Brute Shot

Wrong it's the absolute best

I am actually really good with this gone. I dominate up close and long distance. You all suck for insulting it.

Only in halo 2 it got really good in halo 3

It was ok in halo 3, but useless in halo 2. I loved it when new players made the mistake of picking up the,"grenade launcher! "

This gun was actually really good in Halo 2. If I found it in-game, than I would usually pick it up. Had pretty bad damage, but a good fire rate and good ammo. And also, the gun never really had any kick. But it really started to suck in Halo 3, especially in ODST. I mean, in ODST, the gun had a silencer on it which took away it's already low damage (not to mention that the silencer didn't help with stealth whatsoever). It also had a pointless scope on it, and lastly, the gun had such a high kick. You could be looking down at the ground, shoot 3 bullets, and then be looking straight up into the air. The silenced SMG is one of the reasons that I think Halo 3: ODST is the 2nd worst Halo game. The award for worst would have to go to Halo Wars.

If you dual wield the SMG in halo 3 you are a BEAST! It's got a ton of ammo in a clip and it's fire rate is absolutely AMAZING! When I play my friends in halo 3 and I get the SMG I'm untouchable. And not just in halo 3, for a fact it has the best rate of fire.

Awesome gun, generally. You just walk around feeling like some kind of gangster from the 20's, definitely has a great feel to it, a classic of Halo 2.

9 Plasma Repeater

I like it, mainly because it's a fast-fire plasma rifle. So they'll be saying goodbye to their shields a little faster.

It doesn't burn your hands making you canon fodder, and it recharges a little faster.

This gun suck so much

Plasma rifle seemed more efficient than this. But I serisouly don't see the difference. Two guns that look 90% the same, with almost different names.

10 Storm Rifle

Doesn't do much damage, over heats too fast, let's just face it, it's a terrible weapon.

Do you think the assault rifle and suppressor are to good? You'll love this!

The gun is complete garbage you get 10 shots off it overheats then it takes 3 seconds for you guy to finally able to fire at that time your dead. All and all complete garbage

The Contenders

11 Needler

You just don't know how to use it. The needler is cool and efficient. But that's just my opinion.

The needler got buffed so significantly in halo 2 that it actually took several mags just to kill one person, and that's if all the rounds hit, too!

Good weapon. Best to conserve all the ammo you can, as well as getting a lot of ammo, that way your usage of this gun will be worthwhile. - Canuck101

This is actually a really good gun, use it on big covenant and fire a lot of bullets and they will explode and kill really quickly if u do it right. It is best for elites
by the way, subscribe to a forbidden llama on youtube

12 Sentinel Beam

Seemed cool when I first used it, but doesn't really do a lot of damage.

In halo 2 anniversary the weapon melts people. But in 3 and original 2 it kind of sucks. - Jackamalio

Was a cool idea for sentinel related weapons but didn't do much effectively.

13 Binary Rifle

Why the heck is this weapon on here? The binary rifle is one of the best guns there is! The ammo isn't that good but it has a double scope and does a heck ton of damage, it goes right up there with the sniper rifle.

Really? Who made this list? No covenant carbine? And you put the BINARY on the list? This gun was an absolute beast, better than sniper.

I disagree on this. binary rifle is awesome

The red dot will always give away your position, but if you're not hiding it's Kickass...It's got a Badass kick

14 Mauler

Essentially the Covenant shotgun, in the form of a revolver, I guess they thought was too strong though, because this gun is less effective then a WATER PISTOL! Even Duel wielding, if you aren't two feet away, you'll never even take their shields down! Could kill a grunt faster with a tennis ball, or a handful of pebbles... or if you tried to stab it with a really dull spoon... yeah, those are all better options then the mauler.

This is a really good weapon! Duel wielding with a Spiker, Plasma Rifle, Plasma Pistol, Magnum, SMG, or other Mauler makes this a good weapon. The Plasma Rifle or Pistol can take away shields and then you can walk up and shoot him with the Mauler. It's awesome to use and feels good. In hallways you can shoot him and then punch him with the blade on the bottom.

Mauler is good if you use it right. Shotgun is better though

I don't think so its really good if your you know what your doing its just that way at certan ranges

15 Boltshot

It takes a billion shots with no charge just to kill someone but I use all the time shut just for charge

This is the best shotgun ever

It's not good, but it's so fun

The boltshot should be the 6th worst weapon. I only use it on some of those last levels in halo 4 when I can't find a supressor or lightrifle.

16 Suppressor

Terrible bullet speed, overly ridiculous spread, must be at closer then close range to even hope to kill anything, far and away the worst weapon in any Halo game.

What idiot put this on the list? This gun is amazing in Halo 5. I use it all the time!

Suppressor is weak, but it shoots out fast

The bullet spread is ridiculous.

17 Spartan Laser

Apparently you don't know how to use it.

Take too long to charge and has very bad recoil

Good for vehicles, bad for ground players.

U can aim but after u shoot it moves

18 Type-25 Carbine (Spiker)

Only if you are one foot away it does damage and even when you are within one foot away does terrible damage

19 Focus Rifle

A very good weapon. Good ammo, very powerful. - Canuck101

This is one of the best weapons in all of halo when I play firefight in halo reach I set it for nearly all of my loadouts. This gun has an amazing scope with amazing range and does a TON of damage!

That's the best weapon!
