Six of the Most Overpowered Weapons in Video Game History

Ray Porreca of Entertainment Buddha writes: "Plenty of video games throughout history have featured weapons that allow the player to absolutely annihilate anything in their path. These game-breakingly overpowered weapons are often a blast to use, but negate can negate any challenge that the player might have had to overcome." (3DS, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Counter-Strike, Doom, Halo, PC, Perfect Dark, PS3, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, Xbox 360)

Knew the crissaegrim would be there. I don't know how many schmoos died to get that weapon on every play through. The first time I found it was by was by chance but it changed everything.

I agree the farsight gun was remarkable. One of the ryno guns in the ratchet and clank series was also amazing. My alltime favorite of overpowered weapons is the foam finger guns in deadspace series.

The original "noob tube" from Socom. So overpowered people on your own team would vote you out for using it.

The taser from Syphon Filter 2. It had infinite ammo, had the range of a football field, you can electrocute someone even after they burst into flames and you were invulnerable while using it.
