Daniel Lipscombe of TheGameReviews lists ten first-person shooter guns that no gamer should be without.
The Cerebral Bore is a beast...
Wasn't that in Turok 2 for the Nintendo 64? It was creepy Edit: yep, I read the article, should have done it before :P
This whole list probably should have been guns from Turok...except for the golden gun, I'd have put that at #1
the Sniper Rifle in Unreal Tournament and the Flak Cannon.
im suprised that the ISA assualt rifle from killzone 2 isnt in there because that is easily the most overpowerd assualt rifle in gaming history, toatally unbeleivable, takes all the fun out of the game especially in the online i mean for a game without any auto-aim im actually shocked by how easy it is to land headshots its actually laughable on how easy it is to land a head shot, that weapon is the main reason why i stopped playing the game
Love it. Cerebral bore was sick, especially in multiplayer. Cant really argue with BFG at no. 1 I would put in the Flak cannon from Unreal in there tho.
Every gun in Half Life 2 rules.
The gravity gun stands out the most to me though...
But yes the gravity gun was awesome
the gravity gun is awesome. and @above, the gunplay doesn't suck what are you talking about?
I hate the shooting in HL2: -crappy aimer (the worst in any FPS) -little to no feeling from the guns -crappy arcade style movement -holding 10 guns at once (having only a couple means you have to change the way you play depending on what you've got, rather than being able to choose the best gun for the job. This is also a major annoyance in the Metal Gear Solid series) -Can't lie down (also an annoyance in Killzone) -Can't aim using the weapon's sight But I still love the game, not for it's shooting; but for the great action, story and puzzles. Although unskippable talking scenes made me RAGE on my second playthrough
I'd have to say the portal gun is one of my absolute favorites.
I was also a big fan of the disintigration gun (forgot the real game) from the new Red Faction...
I believe that was the nano rifle, and quite the sweetass piece of weaponry it was too. Though if we're being picky about this that can't be counted seeing as Red Faction Guerilla wasn't an FPS. It still rocked though!
BFG and Cerebral bore ftw!
The Injector was absolutely badass.
didn't they have an article like this a while back?
Killzone 2's Magnum Revolver. So shiny and powerful. quite satisfying to bust off. Resistance2's Bullseye. Tag youre it.
Agreed. I like the nailgun too. And that electricity weapon.
The electricity gun was my favorite in KZ2. To me, has the most badassed reload animation I've used in a FPS. I think the gravity gun is somewhat iconic now almost like the crow bar in HL but if there's ever going to be a future hall of famer, it's got to be that Portal gun. That thing is suwweeet. Never played Prey but was the equipment used to make portals in that game like the Portal gun?.. was it termed as a gun?
I don't think it fits in well with the rest of the game. Killzone 2 has the best shooting I've seen in a game, the feeling of the movement, the aiming and the firing of guns is done so well, it makes Call of Duty look like an arcade game. But The electricity gun and even the nail gun don't really fit in well with this. They are still fun to use but not as fun as the other guns. Also the shotgun has rdiculously short range and a bad aimer (a circle? WTF?) Killzone 2 is still the best FPS I've played and I think all FPS games should strive to match it's shooting.
Helgans energy resource is that electrical current that runs beneath their world. The Electricity gun pulls the electrode particles from air around you when you're down in the mining area. That's why you could only get to use that gun in the mines underground. It was great how they implemented a gun that utilized the resource that Helgan used to get back on their feet with trade. The Nail gun was in Suljeva which was/is a sort of mechanics work yard. So having a weapon that shot bolts on that mission level made sense to. Don't know, the weapons made clear sense to me but maybe not for you I guess. I have to also disgree with the shotgun comment. That things pack one hell of a sweet punch. It felt sooooo goood to plug someone with that. Very satisfying on my part. Gosh, talking about this game has made me want to play it now *sprints off to play the Suljeva level*
They fit in with the story quite well. But just how they play isn;t the same as the rest of the guns. Zappong a whole screen of enemies at once is awesome, so is nailing people to walls; but it seemed a bit too different for using other weapons.
I personally thought the Rail Gun from Quake 2 was better then 3.
I'm glad the Shrink Ray made an appearance. You don't get whacky weapons like that in FPS games anymore.
from unreal tournament/ championship III / 2003
The C Bore ruled! Only way to dodge it was to get into some water..lol where is the Fuzzle launcher? Oddworld man!
Red factions eraser sniper rifle?! It was part 1 or 2 I can't remember? But the rifle had a xray scope & punched holes into walls devasting your foes who were hidden in the geo mods engine walls. Yet that just reminds me of killzone2's sniper rifle & sniper class. Does it get any better than that?
Love me the Portal Gun even if it isn't a gun in the truest sense.
I'd consider it a gun. Just wouldn't consider Portal an FPS.
this list is a joke, resistance should own all 10 spots with its awesome guns
Maybe you should post that list o_O
Lots of good choices here, but the pistol from Halo is WEAK. That's nostalgia talking.
The Sniper Pistol was Halo's biggest perk! Spent many hours picking dudes off. Oh how the series developed into poop since then
The Spartan Laser.
the spartan laser would be awesome if it didnt take 3 seconds to charge
That makes it even better because you have to keep on prepping it and have to time it right. Just makes it that much harder to get that kill. If it was an instant shot than it would be just another nooby weapon.
How about the FarSight from Perfect Dark? Little beast of a gun makes it futile to spawn.
Yeah. FarSight > The entire list... except maybe the Grav gun.
That gun awesome,I loved the sound it made during the reload.The Laptop gun was another favourite of mine.
No FEAR nail gun?
Some great choices, man I love the gravity gun!
except with halo pistol not that cool just a regular pist0l.....
Combat Evolved's pistol sniped. Best Halo gun ever. Dual kneedlers or runner-up.
The Halo Pistol is one of the most skillful guns ever. Much better than most of these nooby guns that people are mentioning.
The BFG is at the top of the list, all's right with the world.
