Worst Zombies Weapons In Call of Duty History

Ever want to just flat out down yourself for getting one of these painful burdens? Whether you like 'em or not, these are the Top 10 zombies weapons that make you want to blow your brains out!

The Top Ten

1 Springfield

This weapon is TRASH!

Can't get headshot kills on round 2, iron sights are OFF

What a pleasant name, huh? Well, it is not a pleasant gun. This thing is yet again, my favorite phrase, a load of trash. How does a gun have less damage than the Kar 98k? Not only that, but on round 1 when it is a two shot kill, you have to aim down the worst iron sights ever and fire shot after unaccurate shot, pulling back the bolt every time. Try not to cry when you are downed 10 times on round 3.

Absolutely hate this gun


All things considered, the SMR is the absolute worst gun in Call of Duty Zombies history, and even one of the worst in the regular game. First of all, its accuracy is awful, missing its target more than it hits. The bullets, if they can even hit your target, will do next to nothing. Think of the M1911, if it were a rifle that couldn't hit the broad side of a barn at point blank range. Another disadvantage the SMR has over the M1911 is that at least the M1911 is pretty good after a trip to the Pack-a-Punch, sporting a dual wield and explosive rounds. The SMR, after the Pack-a-punch, comes close in power to the FAL, stock, while the accuracy isn't improved at all. If it were a wallbuy weapon sold for 500 points, I'd be more willing to forgive its awful quality.

The SMR. The least accurate gun in the history of zombies. This thing has an ADS accuracy that hardly competes with a sniper rifle's hip fire radius. Not only that, but the gun has such low damage, that on an early round, it will take the entire ammo capacity to take out the entire wave. By the time you kill a zombie with this thing, Advanced Warfare is already on the end of it's DLC season.

The least accurate gun in Call of Duty history.

"If this thing fired any slower it would be going backwards".

3 War Machine

Get rid of the gun

The war machine is horrible because the grenades take so long to explode and the reloading is so horrible

I've killed myself more times with this than I've killed a zombie. - hham32

This is an absolute crap weapon until its pack a punched. this thing non pack a punched sucks and can only kill to round 5 with the impact damage but gives no points and if you're going for impact damage then this thing will only have 24 grenades so you don't get many kills. When pack a punched with phd on origins then this gun Is pretty decent because it now explodes on impact with decent damage.

4 Raygun

Who the hell put the ray guns on here

The ray gun isn't as good as everyone thinks it is, but it is still good. It shouldn't be on this list. Its not the best weapon, half way between average and amazing.

I will kill whoever put this on here I shoot your butt with the raygun and give you butt cancer.

The ray gun is a wonder weapon and also it can kill like 50 zombies in a few second on round 100 - salvaged123

5 Jet Gun

I completely agree that this is on worst weapons. It is hard to believe that a wonder weapon could be bad compared to an actual weapon but this is. You take 20 years to build it then you get to use it for 20 seconds and it breaks and you have to build it again.

This thing is an epitome of TranZit (as well as the PaP location). This CAN'T be upgraded, and this is considered as the horror to all Wonder Weapons in Zombies history. Also, to get the Jet Gun, you have to go on a wild goose chase to get 4 parts, but it lasts 15 seconds when you shoot this weapon. No longer than 15 seconds, it breaks easily. Oh did I forget that it'll take you over a hour to wait for it being fully charged? This is considered the biggest disappointment Treyarch brought to you. Truthfully, the Jet Gun is just a troll.

BIGGEST WASTE OF TIME Easter EGG EVER. When I got it for the first time on solo, I took it out of the bar and let loose on a hoard, it didn't kill anything in the hoard and I got trapped and killed.

The jet gun is an incredible weapon and should not be on this list - salvaged123

6 China Lake

Just no

The China Lake is a grenade launcher available in Black Ops. It is a hunk of metal and schrapnel. This thing does hardly any damage, basically stuns you on every shot, and it's reload is very slow, offsetting it's already low ammo capacity. Oh, and you also have to pump this after every shot. It takes ages. Have fun.

The China Lake is considered the most pointless weapon in Black Ops 1 Zombies. It's got a slow pumping and a damage so bad that it makes crawlers and stuns you on every shot (unless you have PhD Flopper). It's also useless, since the launcher class suck in Zombies.

Like almost every other explosive weapon in zombies history, it's absolute garbage.

7 Thundergun

Why is this here it's the best gun you can get if you think this gun sucks then you must get down before you can use it

I would take the thundergun over the wave gun any day of the week, and so would anyone else

Why the hell is this here - EpicDerp372

Non packapunched, this has low ammo and low range. Still an amazing weapon though. PaP its one of the best wonder weapons, not the best, but one of them.

8 Kar 98k

This gun is a semi automatic rifle available in World at War. With a very low ammo capacity, it is not complemented by it's horrifiying damage ratio. It has damage so bad that it becomes useless in a round as early as 5 or 6. The Kar 98k is a gun many zombie hunters want to forget, but can't.

I expected this not to be horrible. God the fact that I wasted 950 in the box and got this trash, is horrid

I get your point. The Kar98k's only good in the early rounds, but it's pointless because it's a bolt-action rifle. So, yeah. It's got 55 shots by default and along with the Arisaka, it's a waste of 200 points. It's not very necessary, not to mention that the damage this thing deals is equivalent to a knife. So PaP'ing this is equivalent to two knives. Still useless even when upgraded.

Not too bad actually until like round 7 or so I can survive

9 Winters Howl

Why does everyone hate this gun it DOES Kill Zombies by FREEZING them yes it gets weaker in later round but every other weapon gets weaker as this one and it slows down the zombies to

The gun DOESN'T KILL Zombies it just freezes them that what EMP us for and it's a waste of a weapon slot ad in the emp is more affective

It can't kill zombies yet they considered it a wonder weapon. I thought wonder weapons were supposed to be the best guns in zombies

This weapon is better than the jet gun, but its still useless and horrible

10 Pharo

Worst damage out of all the guns in BO3, doesn't have very much reserve ammo, and is a burst fire sub machine gun. It's 700 points off the wall and still isn't worth it

The Pharo chokes automatically because what you don't know is that it's actually a 4-round auto burst SMG.

The low damage, burst fire, and crappy iron sights make this a bad zombies gun.

I think that the Pharo is good until round 8. 4 round burst, great for points, but awful packed

The Contenders

11 VR-11

This is a big hunk of trash that Treyarch called a wonder weapon so people could be excited. This is (thankfully) only present on Call of the Dead. It's effect is that it turns a single zombie into a human, acting as a small monkey bomb. It has low ammo capacity, the zombie that you shoot is useless, and it is overall a humongous waste of a weapon slot. This is what monkeys are for! They work better and don't take up a weapon slot, only equipment.

This is not a wonder weapon, it is a wonder helper, maybe a wonder slightly helps you team, this thing just sucks!

Its kinda good, because it gives blood grain for a couple seconds

The scavenger's retarded brother

12 Barrett .50c

The Barrett is a semi automatic sniper rifle. It is a horror to all sniper rifles. This thing does hardly any damage on round 10 and above, has an extremely low reload time, enormous kick, a terrible scope, and slow rate of fire. "Well, it has to be good packed, right? " Nope. Unlike it's 2025 established cousin, the DSR, you cannot pack this any more and get a form of iron sights, but you are stuck with a horrible variable zoom scope. When will we use that? This weapon is just an all out waste of time.

The Barrett is likely the alcoholic version of the DSR, Ballista, and the SVU. It's much worse than the other snipers from Black Ops 1 (The L96A1 and the Dragunov). The PTRS in World at War is good because it's got higher damage. The Barrett is just a waste. If you like this piece of trash, you are a moron. This isn't Modern Warfare, bro. This is Zombies!

Bad damage and wastes ammo like crazy.

Waste of a gun slot

13 RPG

Fun to use on like round 20. After that takes too many shots with the ammo capacity you have. Love it, just not effective enough

It is good what are you talking about tray arch

This thing is a crawler machine

The RPG may be a beast in multiplayer, but in zombies it is a waste. You would expect the RPG to do wonders, but it does not. Low damage in later rounds, slow reload speed and clip size, and useless without PHD Flopper, (thanks for teasing us on Die Rise, Vonderhaar) the RPG is a piece of trash in zombies.

14 Ballistic Knife

Good for points I guess :/

You have no ammo, and to make it useful you need to knife zombies. Sure the pap'd version is good because of the revive mechanic, but the actual weapon itself is useless.

Good pack a punched on co op zombies but solo is bad.

Worst weapon than the SMR

15 PPSh-41

Best gun in zombies overall

Who ever put this on the list ARE YOU RETARDED?! Why would you put this on the list

Your joking me. When pack-a-punched this is the best gun in zombies, period. It literally is the best gun.

Id like to speak to the retarded brain dead idiot who put this on the list

16 Argus

No, this gun is ok non pack a punched then you pack a punch it with 25 ammo in the clip and tons more damage even better than some other shotguns.

The Argus is a lever-action shotgun from BO3. It was supposed to look like a Model 1887 from MW2 and MW3, but it failed miserably to do so. Why? Instead of buckshots in SP and MP, the Zombies version replaces them with slugs. If that's not bad enough, it suffers poor accuracy that only wants you to aim for the head.

I think because it's has bad accuracy.

For a shotgun it's bad.
Pack-a-punch 2 shot round 18.

17 Crossbow

This surely is a bad gun. Obtained from the Mystery Box, the crossbow fires explosive arrows that deal minemal damage, and stick to surfaces and zombies, giving you an opportunity to down yourself. With low ammo capacity as well, you want to get rid of this as quickly as possible.

This shouldn't be on the list. The PaP version attracts zombies.

Good when pack a punched because it is extra monkey bombs.

At least the awful Lawton is not awful

18 PM-63

Wall weapon, 1000 points, 120 shots total, weak damage and pathetic range. Much worse when Pack-a-Punched. It deserves to be thrown in a hole and getting pooped on...

I just used this gun packed on round 22. Took like 12 shots to kill. Bye bye ammo.

It's a good point gun at least but HORRIBLE damage

The PM63 is a wall gun in Black Ops Zombies. It's hardly compared to the MPL, MP5k, Spectre, and the AK74u, but it's considered the weakest submachine-gun in its class. It has 120 shots in total, and its high rate of fire literally burns through it. It's much worse when upgraded, because the dual-wielded version drains accuracy fast. Not to mention it's a waste of 1000 points, so there's no point using this.

19 FAL

This is a fine gun on earlier rounds with great ammo capacity. The unfortunate downfall of this is its low damage on anything other than the head. Perfect candidate for dead shot daiquiri though.

A fal is good for head shots.

Not a bad gun for early rounds, but sucks because they made it a burst fire weapon when pack a punched. It had low ammo and I would rather have a chicom

Great gun for headshots

20 M1 Garand

It's like the Springfield, but Similar-Automatic, and Pack a Punch.

Just bad in every category

21 AE4

Exo zombies sucked I expected so much more from it and it was trash. Never actually got this thing.

22 M2 Flamethrower

In my own opinion the worst weapon in WAW. You can take fire damage from it if you shoot it close to you, it does low damage. Also after about ten seconds it overheats and take more time for it to cool. Just a weapon I want to forget.

I thought it was so good on earlier rounds. Then it sucked.

23 Scavenger

Shut your mouth

24 Wunderwaffe DG 2

Well, true. But the Wunderwaffe DG 2 is still GOOD, not the BEST. Also, Black Ops III ruined this gun.

One of the worst wonder weapons due to the kill cap

+it takes jugg in WaW der riese

25 Man O' War

This is an amazing gun, Very powerful damage, very accurate, its an assault rifle, decent ammo and a decent rate of fire. One of the best bo3 guns.

If someone thinks this is a bad zombies gun they must be crazy!

Bad not shoot fast not such gun very disapoint

This gun is the second best assault rifle in bo3 beating the hvk by a bit and being beaten by the icr by a little bit

26 B23R

This is a 3 round burst pistol, it's uses ammo faster than you kill zombies on round 15. It is decent on round 1-6, and pretty good PaPed and a good point maker but UnPaPed it is Horrible, not to mention it's PaPed name
~B34R, It is a waste of 900-1000 points

27 Chicom CQB

This is a diamond in the rough for the world of trash weapons. For those of you who don't know, this is a terrible weapon. It's ammo capacity may look great, with 40 rounds in the magazine, but those rounds are virtually roasted marshmallows. Yup. These rounds deal hardly any damage in even round 5-10, and since it is burst fire, it burns through ammo like a wildfire. If that isn't enough, it has terrible iron sights that kick up because of it's awful recoil. Don't do this in the next zombies game, please, Treyarch.

Literally the only good thing about this weapon is its tiny recoil. Its low damage and low range and low ammo.

I never expected much from this gun, at first it did what an smg did I was mobile fired fast made some money then my ammo was like ha sucker. Ran out of ammo almost as fast as the kap-40 but that was a full auto pistol what do u expect

Aye the chicoms an okay gun just get double tap and its fine

28 Gorgon

This gun is hilarious. Just the perfectly fits the gun. Gorgon- the humongous guy at the gym who only works out his upper body. But he's slow in every category. You move slow you aim slow you reload slow you shoot slow you slowly kill the zombies. I was so excited when I first got it. Your ammo is so tiny you can only kill like 80 zombies. No money made just a waste of time. Kinda like the barf from waw

I would rather that the BAR over this hunk of garbage. At least with the BAR, you could buy it off the wall in most maps except Der Riese in World at War for 1800 points (2500 in Verruckt) And you can make all of your points back with the BAR and it's decent when Pack A Punched. The Gorgon has a fire rate of 327 while the BAR has a fire rate of 375! (545 pack a punched) It also does more damage and reloads quicker than the Gorgon. The Gorgon can cost anywhere from 950 to tens of thousands of points since it's only available from the Mystery box. Your better of with the BAR.

The Gorgon would've been decent if you put a Rapid Fire attachment and get Double Tap 2.0. Still, it shoots so slow.

I hate the gorgon it shoots slow

29 Executioner

Actually this thing pack a punched was an op sniper. Could mow down hordes you were mobile and I would choose this over a ray gun. Hilariously bad in multiplayer though

30 Sheiva

This thing falls under the same catagory as the smr. It may not be as inaccurate as it but the fire rate is SO SLOW semi auto with a firing cap that kills this thing. Small ammo capacity the SAME RELOAD ANIMATION AS THE SMR that's slow and you do the flip thing. I just expected this thing to be like the m14, we all cut the m14 some slack because it is a wall buy and you don't have to get it. The Sheva is a wall buy and BOX WEAPON it's not even like a money maker on earlier waves it kills them then the damage drops to like NOPE. Horrible terrible, this cancer of a gun is a disgrace to society

Horrid. mediocre accuracy but horrid after maybe round 5. I would rather have the gorgon or Mr. than have this

Actually ok when pack a punched because shieva actually has high damage and I think that its good for heads

Absolute cancer. Good thing I pick up the RK5 at the start of every round - POKEGAMERZ

31 PDW

If this is the aw pdw
Makes sense if the bo2 pdw 50
Then you need to use it on low rounds for points and higher rounds it is a great gun

I could not find other lists.So here you go WORST GUN EVER!

Meh this thing was average

32 Commando

This gun is basically the galil's slightly less successful brother. It is still amazing at early rounds, and pack a punched it easily wrecks zombies until round 30 - 35 - hham32

This is a beast gun okay

33 Molotov Cocktails

Useless, needs to be higher on this list - hham32

Quite frankly, the most pointless and worst throwable in zombies history. So bad as a matter of fact, it can't even kill a single zombie on round 1.

34 Arisaka

What do you expect? It's like the Kar98k's brother.

Trash gun that falls in the same catagory as the m1 carbine k98rk and the other bolt action rifles

35 S12

Good for stealing other players kills and points on earlier rounds. Otherwise this gun is common and useless.

This thing is god awful packs punched. You get 15 extra shots in the reserve...

Bo2 or aw? If aw, great gun, if bo2, awful

The S12 is a semi-automatic shotgun available in all BO2 Zombies maps (excpet for Origins). This gun is pointless for reasons. It has low ammo, and is comparatively weak. This hardly compares to the Olyimpia because Olympia in BO2 is better when you PaP it and put Double Tap 2. The S12, only gains additional small amount of damage and two clips. It's so horrible that this brings shame to all other shoutguns.

36 Olympia

This doesn't deserve this spot. For a 500 point wall weapon packed, it's pretty good.

This thing is actually well worth the measly 500 dollars

Even when it's paped it's bad

The Brolympia is actually a fun gun to use. It may be under powered, but pack a punched with doubletap 2.0, it is one of the best shotguns ever

37 The Ballista (Iron Sights) (Origins)

This is an awesome early round weapon and it is extremely fun to use. Who cares anyway? You'll forget it after wave 5-6

Okay you would expect this to be great right WELL NEWS FLASH IT SUCKS okay!? I would take the barret 50 cal SCOPE instead of this crap but it's a starter wall weapon can you expect anything more? well done treyarch you have trolled us YET AGAIN

Point is if u got the shovel it was FREE

38 SVG-100

This POS from Black Ops III makes the Barrett look desirable. It is bolt-action with a six round mag capacity and a MASSIVE scope. The only thing that make it good is it's one hit kill and the ability to put a red dot sight on it.

It's not that bad we've had worse snipers


I wouldn't go that far. Elo fixes the scope, like you said. at least tou weren't out of ammo before the end of the roynd

39 Gerwehr

It litterally Takes all the ammo to kill a single zombie

40 Ray Gun Mark 2

This is by far better then the ray gun this gun mows compared to others

This doesn't deserve to be on this list. It's the ray gun mark 2 ffs, until round 50 pack a punched it is one of the best guns in bo2 - hham32


41 Galil

You, are ass - TheQuackingGodGaming

More trash than your haircut

42 BAR

Useless and bad. Fired too slow not enough ammo.

The BAR is a rifle/LMG in World at War. This costs 1800 points (2500 points in Verruckt). This thing has the slowest rate of fire in Zombies history. However, the Bipod attachment in Verruckt does nothing. So, it's pointless.

43 M1911

This was a starting pistol doesn't count

Best gun packed beside ppsh

Pack a punch it and get phd, you are set until round 50 - hham32

44 Ray Gun Mk3

Who ever put this on here swallows

Ray Gun Mark 3 is the best Ray Gun in Call of Duty history - POKEGAMERZ

45 Lightning Bow

The other guy is so right

it’s ass

46 M1927
