The 15 Most Overpowered Weapons In Videogame History

When moving through any game, your goal is usually to move up the food chain: get better guns, get better armor, get better everything. Get to the point where you're unstoppable, where you can mow through enemies like a weed whacker through a bunch of easily-whacked weeds. But this desire needs to be kept in check – because when the developers include weapons that are too good, it can completely throw off the balance of the whole game. There's no need for strategy or real challenge with weapons that are that powerful – and just like when Tim Allen makes a way too powerful weed whacker on Home Improvement, sometimes we need to recognize when things have gone too far. These are the 15 most overpowered weapons in videogame history. (3DS, Counterstrike, Doom, Fallout 3, Halo: Combat Evolved, Mario Kart, Mega Man 2, PC, Retro, Super Smash Bros., The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Wii, Xbox)

No Ryno IV from R&CF:TOD on the list? Once I got that weapon, any and everybody could be beaten within seconds. And I rarely ever ran out of ammo for it.
