    Ratchet & Clank 3 has the best weapon - RYNOCIRATOR. It's max level Ry3no. What does it do? It destroys everything you see in one shot.

    Meh. Sorry, but one-hit kills are boring. So while B.F.G. wins the title of funniest abbreviation for a weapon, I'd much rather go into battle with a weapon that plays the 1812 Overture every time it's in use.

    the BFG isn't a 1HKO, it's undoubtedly one of the best weapons in all of gaming thanks to it's awesome mechanics, but you CAN'T one hit a Cyberdemon, a Mastermind, yes.

    In all this series of best guns in video games, NONE I mean NONE of borderlands guns were featured, not even in the honorable mentions! No Norfleet for this video, no Sandhawk for best SMGs, no Pimpernel for best Snipers, no Norfleet (again) for best launcher. I'm starting to believe that WatchMojo just never played this franchise.

    Of all the amazing wonder weapons in zombies, like the origins staffs, the sliquifier, the ray gun mark 2 and 3, the thunder gun, the apothican servant, the babymaker, the blundergat, the paralyzer, the scavenger, etc, YOU PICKED THE RAY GUN?????

  • Nick Jackson

    This is Missing the Orbital Strike from SOE's Planet Side . Cmd Rank 5 OS would change the tide of battles in one of the best MMO shooters I've seen 30+ players wiped off the map with their Max Suits, tanks and Battle frame Robotics all dissolving from it's might. That Whine, The First Marker laser coming down and everyone scrambling to get out of it's AOE, Then Galaxy drop ships coming over the walls dropping in units... Ha man SOE killed a hell of a game. But that Orbital strike deserves a spot on this list.

  • AO 77777
    AO 77777 3 months ago +1

    The ray gun in call of duty zombies is actually one of the worst weapons because it cant be double pack a punched so it falls of after like round 30. Best call of duty zombies weapon are the Thundergun, Apothicon Servant and in my opinion close second is the 31-79 JGb215. This is because they are always 1 shot kill at any round and can take out a whole wave of zombies. The 31-79 JGb215 is slightly weaker as it doesn't make zombies die only makes them small so they die in 1 hit from any damage or running over them, but has highest ammo capacity for a wonder weapon so it can be considered the strongest weapon in the whole game for some people.

    the chronocepter from the first Turok should've made this list, not the cerebral bore. I love the cerebral bore, don't get me wrong, but this is for the deadliest of weapons, What's deadlier than a ceptor that fires a charged nuclear blast that kills everything in it's way. Or even the fusion cannon, also from the first game, also the nuke weapon in Turok 2 Seeds of evil could've made this list.
