View Full Version : Top 10 Video Game Weapons...

Love it.


My favorite on the list, probably the BFG. But that's cause I'm still stuck on Doom 95 and text based RPGs, never got even to Half-Life the first one. ;)

Fucking energy sword...

08-01-2006, 03:18 PM
I always liked the miniaturization gun from Duke Nukem, personally.

08-01-2006, 03:24 PM
I would've chosen the lightsaber from Jedi Academy over the energy sword from Halo.

08-01-2006, 03:32 PM
Farsight in Perfect Dark FTW
Also tracktor beam in Zero Wing!

08-01-2006, 03:32 PM
The Halo 2 energy sword would be awesome if Halo 2 wasn't such a piece of shit.

I am about to click the link and REALLY HOPE THE CHRONOSCEPTER AND BFG-9000 WERE #1 and 2.

Let's-a-find out.

08-01-2006, 03:33 PM
It wasn't on their list, but I've always been partial to the Redeemer from Unreal Tournament.

08-01-2006, 03:39 PM
<<Also tracktor beam in Zero Wing!>>

It was pretty useless as a weapon. The bombs and the ultimate homing missiles were fucking awesome. I only captured shit in the beam to use as a shield.

And yes, I have actually played Zero Wing enough that I have beaten the game and gotten the ultimate homing missiles. It takes a while.

Christ you beat the game?
Man I got to the last level and got wasted every time. After years and years.
No cheats.

Wow. They put the laptop gun over the psychosis gun in PD.


I would have put that saw blade shooting shit over the gravity gun, too.

08-01-2006, 03:42 PM
I do like the choice of the Spread Gun from Contra. That thing fuckin' rocked. Made up for some of the other shitty weapons in the game, like the flame thrower thing. And the curly firing thing too.

That was also way more fun (and ridiculously overpowered) than the laptop gun in multiplayer mode :yes:

08-01-2006, 03:46 PM

Haha, yeah, I think it was last summer, maybe 2 summers ago. I played it a lot.

08-01-2006, 03:57 PM
I liked the freeze gun from Nukem. It was highly satisfying to kick some frozen bastard and get an atomic health.

08-01-2006, 04:11 PM
The black and white lasers/bullets on Ikagura.
The whole concept was just awesome.

I saw that awhile ago and personally didn't agree with most of them. Did bring back a shitload of memories tho.

08-01-2006, 05:16 PM
Come on you can't forget the Chainsaw in Doom! Didn't do much but was a great sadistic idea.

08-01-2006, 05:45 PM
Anyone who uses the enery sword in Halo2 deserves to get blown out of the water. In a game with good players it's so easily neutralized that no one picks it up.

08-01-2006, 05:53 PM
I prefer halo2 energy sword contests where there is a sword free-for-all so to speak. Everyone has one and the odds are evened considerably. Those games are usually a blast to me.

But what Drew said is on point. Some games I'd play and noone would pick up the energy sword at all, often times going for unique combos instead.

I remember one time I used a needler/pistol combo and the guy I blasted berated me for using a "new" combo. Figured he was a noob to make such a ridiculous comment.

08-01-2006, 08:29 PM
I preferred the lazer gun in contra myself.

08-01-2006, 10:23 PM
My fav video game weapon has to the the “Springfield '03 Sniper” from MOH.

08-02-2006, 03:21 PM
Redeemer and Sniper rifle from UT.

Nothing like seeing a sniper sitting there and you guide a redeemer to hunt them down. They finally notice it and start running, but it's too late. Double Kill, Multi Kill, Mega Kill, Ultra Kill, Monster Kill!

Haha, I enjoy killing people with double needlers in multiplayer. I've heard "Did I just killed by fucking needlers!?!?!?!?" so many times.

UT rocked.

08-02-2006, 04:23 PM
sniper rifle from the SNES 007 golden gun game.

First game I played that really got sniper rifles "right"

09-09-2006, 07:23 PM
The Walther 2000 rifle in Black is bad-ass. It has a 2x and 5x scope and can drop anyone at close range with one shot.

I must say, however, that the MP5 with a silencer has been my mainstay.

The Magnum is cool, but it does not help much against the armored dudes with one shot like the Remington does.

09-09-2006, 07:25 PM
I liked the Danza-slap in "porn warrior II: ultimate cumback"

(I made that up)

09-09-2006, 08:17 PM
Taser in Syphon Filter.
Keep it pressd down till you set em on fire.. and still keep it pressed down to electricute them while on fire!

09-09-2006, 10:15 PM
Double detonator charges on Goldeneye-Rogue Agent.

Best I can think of right now.

09-09-2006, 11:11 PM
I have to admit, I did like the needler in HALO. But over all that game is crap. Better than UT, only slightly.

I like games with real physics.

09-09-2006, 11:20 PM
HALO has real physics, it's just that you're in an ubersuit that makes you fit to save the universe. So you can jump pretty high and stuff.

09-09-2006, 11:28 PM
Halo 1 was amazing. You really can't take that away from me. :(
Automatic rifle ( though not alien ) Was amazing to deal death with.

All of Sam Fisher's weapons were supreme, too.

09-11-2006, 04:03 PM
Come on you can't forget the Chainsaw in Doom!

Was about to suggest chainsaw, but I see someone already did it. Agree


09-25-2006, 11:29 PM
Pretty good list, missing one huge one...

AWP from Counter-strike

09-25-2006, 11:49 PM
I just finished Black after 2 months of playing the hard level. Not much of an ending, but great gameplay.

09-26-2006, 12:21 AM
but great gameplay.
Hell yes.

09-26-2006, 12:45 AM
Hell yes.

I attribute that to EA Games.

09-26-2006, 09:42 AM
Metal Man's weapon in Mega Man 2.

Or, perhaps, Air Man's weapon vs. Crash Man. CM was such a bitch.

09-26-2006, 10:25 AM
Nat Pangle's Fish Terminator.

09-26-2006, 06:58 PM
Red shell shouldn't have been as high as it was... maybe in the lower 10.

09-26-2006, 07:10 PM
Knife, Counter-Strike.

Green Shell because it showed true skill.
