Best Call of Duty Guns of All Time [Top 8 List]

1 /8

VMP (Submachine Gun)

Of course, I start my list of the most overpowered weapons in Call of Duty with the VMP, which everyone enjoys playing. The VMP, which entered our lives with Call of Duty: Black Ops III, is a versatile overpowered gun with a high fire rate. Although it is the weakest of the remaining weapons on our list, it is definitely one of the best when it comes to satisfying use.

SPAS-12 (Shotgun)

The SPAS-12, which I can see in almost every game in CoD history, is a dominant shotgun. It has excellent range and high damage output for a shotgun. This shotgun, which has enormous range-killing potential, was a favorite of Call of Duty Modern Warfare games.

Although I cannot say that it is the best gun on the list, it can definitely be one of the best shotguns in Call of Duty Modern Warfare franchise, one of the best CoD games of all time.

BAL-27 (Assault Rifle)

We are here with the Bal-27, which went down in CoD history as one of the best bullpup assault rifles in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It is among the assault rifles with the most massive damage scale in Advanced Warfare. This gun almost has virtually no recoil. Besides, it has an average fire rate and enough damage for an assault rifle.

AK-47 (Assault Rifle)

One of the other assault rifles on my list, I'll be reviewing the popular AK-47 that most Call of Duty players are familiar with. I can say that the AK-47, which you can find in most of the Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Black Ops series, was the best assault rifle of its time. It is an assault rifle with extremely lethal and top-tier damage. In addition, thanks to its reasonable recoil, it has always been among the most powerful assault rifles in every CoD game.

UMP45 (Submachine Gun)

Working with one shot kill mechanics, the UMP-45 is a deadly submachine gun that has stopping power against enemies at close range. The UMP-45 is an overpowered weapon featured in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. 

It has been argued that the UMP-45 should always be played with a silencer. Unquestionably, the UMP is one of the most versatile weapons, with its low recoil and top tier damage. However, it is not at the top of my list because it is not very enjoyable to play.

MP40 (Submachine Gun)

When it comes to Call of Duty Black Ops and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare series, the most overpowered weapon that comes to mind is definitely the MP40. The power it achieves as a result of its combination with the iron sights, especially in Call of Duty Black Ops, is iconic. 

Considered one of the most common weapons in the game, the MP40 has always earned the right to be among the most overpowered guns with its large magazine, deadly damage scale and considerable range. It exhibits enormous damage, especially when paired with iron sights, and reaches the peak of its stopping power.

M16A4 (Assault Rifle)

Without a doubt, the M16A4 is one of the best assault rifles in Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, and Modern Warfare Remastered

Dominating not only Call of Duty Modern Warfare but also Black Ops II, this weapon is definitely one of the most broken guns in Call of Duty history. If you are a Call of Duty Modern Warfare fan, you definitely know that the feeling when you play with this weapon is indescribable.

ACR (Assault Rifle)

ACR made an ambitious entry into our lives with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3 which are the best selling Call of Duty games ever. And it was cut from the CoD game Infinite Warfare. 

It has an average fire rate and its damage reaches the desired level with perks that support it. Compared to the version in Modern Warfare 2, the version of Modern Warfare 3 is definitely superior. 

When it comes to its mobility and range, it definitely makes for a great weapon selection. Whether you're a Call of Duty veteran or a new recruit, the ACR is a Modern Warfare 3 weapon that will appeal to everyone.
