Another Top 10 Overpowered Multiplayer Weapons in Video Games

You do not want to be on the business end of one of these. Welcome to Watchmojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for Another Top 10 Overpowered Multiplayer Weapons in Video Games.

For this list, as was the case with the first one, we’re searching the world of multiplayer gaming for guns, blades, explosives and various weaponry that are extremely powerful, especially for the players given circumstances. These aren’t necessarily bad weapons, they just pack a little too much oomph. And if you don’t see a weapon you feel should have made the cut, be sure to check out our first Top 10 Overpowered Multiplayer Weapons video.

#10: Redeemer

“Unreal Tournament” Series (1999-)
What could make a thermonuclear warhead even more powerful? How about putting it in projectile form? Want even more power? Well its secondary fire allows you to steer said projectile into any poor bastard that you might stumble across. The Redeemer first appeared in Unreal Tournament back in 1999, and has been wreaking havoc in the series ever since. The splash damage is so intense on this mini nuke that all you have to do is merrily aim in your target’s general vicinity and all that will be left is smoke. And a mushroom cloud.

#9: Dark Sword

“Dark Souls III” (2016)
If you like your carnage a little more intimate, then get up close and personal with the Dark Sword from Dark Souls 3. This pitch black sword starts off with low dexterity and strength, but with certain infusions the player can increase both categories to make it an effective and powerful weapon no matter what build is being used. Once a player starts a heavy attack with the Dark Sword, it’s hard to get knocked out of and you can break the guard of opponents. Also, being a Straight Sword, or one handed sword, the player can still carry a shield for defense. Speed, power and a deceptively long reach make this one sword you don’t want to come across.

#8: Grenade Launcher

“Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” Series (2007-2011)
Earning the infamous title of “noob tube” in the Call of Duty multiplayer world, the grenade launcher can either be a standalone gun or be attached under the barrel of an assault rifle. Most incarnations require the round to travel a certain distance to explode, to avoid accidently blowing yourself up. However, it’s not just the explosion that can kill. A player can also be killed if a round hits them directly, which is slightly more embarrassing for those of us on the receiving end. The large splash radius means a player can simply aim and fire and deal massive damage and most of the time death.

#7: Laptop Gun

“Perfect Dark” (2000)
Need to put out a lot of bullets in a short amount of time? At 1000 rounds per minute, you can’t get much better than the Laptop Gun. This submachine gun designed as a laptop computer, hence the name, can either be fired like a standard machine gun or can be placed in the environment as an automated turret. Because of the turrets small size, this weapon can turn into a camper’s best friend. The low damage it inflicts is quickly nullified by its deadly accuracy and speed at which it fires. Also, if it is in turret mode and is destroyed, it will explode and deal damage to anyone close enough. One last shot before it logs off.

#6: Vex Mythoclast

“Destiny” (2014)
Only dropped when completing the Vault of Glass Raid on Hard Mode, this fusion rifle received backlash when it was introduced into PvP matches. Criticized for being overpowered, Bungie released a patch to “nerf” the gun, or make it less powerful. Its base damage was reduced by 34% but it still packs a punch. The Vex Mythoclast is currently the only gun of its kind and considered by many to be the best weapon in the game. It requires no charge time and fires 1 round per pull of the trigger and boasts a 279 Attack Power. Despite the damage reduction, you still wouldn’t want to be staring down the barrel of this gun.

#5: BFG

“Doom” Series (1993-)
Now this is one big freakin’ gun. Capable of clearing an entire room of enemies in one shot, the BFG is by far the most powerful gun in the Doom series. It fires green plasma and deals major damage. By major damage we mean death. If you somehow survive the initial shot, you most likely aren’t going to survive the spread that expands out in a cone pattern in front of the shooter to deal maximum damage in a devastating area-of-effect. Kills are all but guaranteed. Just point, shoot, and watch the beautiful barrage of green and blood red.

#4: DL-44

“Star Wars Battlefront” (2015)
The most powerful blaster pistol in the galaxy, the DL-44 is the sidearm of choice for Han Solo and is the last gun unlocked in Star Wars Battlefront. It requires level 25 and 2,500 credits to acquire, or if you pre-ordered the game. Dealing massive damage at short range and equipped with a scope, the only downside to this blaster is how quickly it overheats. Dealing the second highest damage per shot in the game, a player can often one shot one kill the opposition with a well-placed headshot. Anywhere else on the body can take as little as 2 shots to kill. It’s since been nerfed but the fact that this was a pre-order item leaves a really bad stigma on EA’s business practices.

#3: Auto Shotgun

“Left 4 Dead” (2008)
Facing hordes of the undead? Need a powerful weapon with large spray and high rate of fire? Then the Auto Shotgun from Left 4 Dead is the right tool for the job. A more powerful version of the pump action and chrome shotguns, this tier 2 beast doesn’t require a pump between shots which enables the player to get more shots off. Dealing a lot of damage extremely fast and with a lot of kick behind it, the Auto Shotgun is by far the best weapon for taking out infected, and the best for losing friends when playing VS mode.

#2: Energy Sword

“Halo” Series (2001-)
An extremely powerful and devastating melee weapon in close quarters, the Energy Sword can pierce through the shield and armor of a Spartan in a single slice. Once a player has an enemy in the crosshairs, all they have to do is swing and they will be propelled forward and deal a deadly blow. While not ideal for large maps, any time there are tight quarters, small rooms and ambush points, the Energy Sword is unmatched. An enemy can be dealt with in a single blow before they even have time to react.

#1: Golden Gun

“Goldeneye 007” (1997)
Ah the Golden Gun, responsible for more ruined friendships than Oddjob. This high-risk, high-reward gun is, believe it or not, a gold plated pistol and is the most powerful weapon in the game. It holds only one bullet at a time, but requires a single shot to any body part to kill. With its appearance based on the weapon Christopher Lee’s character uses in The Man with The Golden Gun, it became so popular from its appearance in the Goldeneye game that it was added to subsequent Bond games. Although gorgeous in appearance, if you ever catch a glimpse of it you are most likely dead.
