Top 10: Best Weapons In a First Person Shooter

Weapons have always been a major part of most games to date. This list is made to commemorate those weapons that stand out amongst the rest; those that were not just incredibly effective at their roles, but incredibly memorable in their implementation, uniqueness or otherwise just being an absolute blast to play with.

I agree that the Cerebral Bore is probably the coolest weapon ever to be seen in a FPS. The bow and arrow from Turok was also neat.

I think that the Covenant Beam Rifle from the Halo series should be on some of these lists though.

Completely agree with Cerebral Bore. That weapon alone made Turok 2 one of my all time fave FPS games (Though the game itself was very fun itself).

My other fave FPS weapons (Aside from Cere Bore and other Turok weapons):
1.Painkiller from Painkiller game (Main weapon)
2.Shotgun from Doom (1&2) and Blood.
3.Gravity Gun from Half Life 2
4.The stakelauncher from Painkiller game. (I really loved that game and it's weapons)
5.Canon & Link Gun from Unreal Tournoment games.

@Bloodmask

cerebal bore was and still is my favorite....that noise and crunching sound it made was so awesome

@MK

Blood was one of the first games that came out that had duel shotties and a starting weapon of a pitch fork...lol...I can't believe someone remembers that....I don't feel so old!

I liked that nuke gun from the first Turok as well....I cheated to get it...but it made a huge explosion.

MK_Red3666d ago

Glad to see you remember that classic. That game was uber awesome. Start from grave with pitchfork and that superb fire pistol thingy.

pilotpistolpete3666d ago

Haha, yes I knew cerebral bore would be there! It's THE weapon.

@Skerj......we must have posted this list at the exact same time. LOL

All mentioned (in article and comments) were good and brought me back ages (Blood? jeez!). However I must say I had a lot of fun with the Bullseye in RFOM. The first shot marked your enemy, then all shots went straight for it. It was pretty innovative.

Bonsai12143666d ago

haha.. they posted another sniper rifle instead of the AWP. but its great that it got a mention. the writer is completely right. whoever controls the awp controls the game.

no crowbar from half life? the quintessential melee weapon. oh, and no gravity gun?

Skerj3666d ago

I knew they'd leave some weapons off that I'd want. Where's the Gravity Gun from HL2? The Farsight from Perfect Dark, and while it's newer to the game a lot of the weapon in Resistance were pretty cool. I'd put the Disc launcher from Tribes 2 in there but maybe people didn't like it as much.
