Most Broken Guns & Weapons in All Time Halo [Nostalgic Answer]
As Halo has some of the greatest weapons of all time, some of these weapons are just purely broken. Below we are going to cover all of the different weapons in Halo that break the average system of a good weapon and are completely overpowered in any game mode. There are plenty of guns and weapons in the Halo universe, let's take a look through some Halo history!
The rocket launcher in Halo was first introduced in Halo 2 as one of the most broken weapons ever created in Halo. With a one-shot kill, you have no chance against someone using this weapon. A rocket launcher makes it very difficult to competitively play in Halo Infinite if you are constantly being attacked by one of these.
The Answer (SAW)
Another extremely powerful weapon, although discontinued use and is not yet to be seen in Halo Infinite, is The Answer (SAW). The SAW weapon was/is an extremely stable machine gun that holds like an assault rifle, but damages with heavy machine gun rounds taking out a number of enemies in one round.
The best Halo game in the Halo series to play this power weapon would be in Halo 4 multiplayer or Halo 5. As Halo 5 is the most optimized as it was the last released Halo game with this overpowered weapon. Although Halo 5 was one of the worst Halo games, it still held true to some major power weapons.
The Sniper Rifle with its .50 Caliber one-shot kill method is equivalent to what you may experience with the AWP CS:GO power weapon. Sniper Rifle if put in the wrong hands is extremely broken and is very frustrating for opponents due to the annoyance of someone who cannot learn any other type of weapon.
This is definitely a weapon many players are wanting to be nerfed, due to how effective it can be with players who only practice using an overpowered weapon such as the sniper rifle.
The energy sword has way more power than it really should... I mean one swipe kill from behind and you have no chances is asking for an extremely frustrated player. Not only this, but some players, similar to the sniper rifle, use the energy sword as their main weapon. Only due to the fact that it is so overpowered.
The energy sword has definitely caused a lot of arguments in matches as a joy killer. Are we the only ones who also think the range of kill is also unrealistically long for the size of the sword? Many times, we have also experienced this as the opponent is unrealistically distant from you, and still manages to get the kill.
Another similar weapon to the energy sword and sniper community, the gravity hammer is uniquely one of the most broken weapons in Halo. Gravity hammers are unrealistically powerful with a one-hit kill from an even greater reaching distance than the energy sword.
Another frustrating thing about the gravity hammer is how sometimes it reaches, but if someone is relatively shouldering to shoulder with you, it will glitch and not damage them. This is something that kind of nerfs the weapon, although still one of the most extremely powerful weapons in the Halo universe since Halo 3.
A new addition since the release of Halo Infinite's multiplayer, the Cindershot is a close-range to medium-range two-shot kill weapon that sends players into fumes. These new weapons have brought all of the old Halo players into a frustrated or excited reaction to its performance.
The Cindershot has a 6 grenade round maximum that sends explosions in whichever direction you aim this weapon. A new Halo player killing a veteran Halo fan would find this weapon extremely satisfying to show who's the best. Although in our opinion, this weapon is just a bit too broken to use on the battlefield.
Another new addition to the weapons list, the shock rifle is a new Halo Infinite power weapon that is absolutely broken in the right (or wrong) hands. Taking three shocks from this rifle is the ultimate death, and from our experience, it really does make you want to rage quit!
The shock rifle causing extra delayed damage gives the opposing team the advantage to take you down in close-range combat.
Although not a gun, the banshee is a horrifically overpowered and broken weapon that is frustrating for any opposing team. The banshee which has been introduced since Halo Combat Evolved has become a more and more powerful weapon with the option of plasma cannons or plasma bombs that can not only destroy everything in front of it but leave quickly to not be destroyed or damaged.
In some of the worst maps of all time like Halo 4 the "Vortex", killing any banshee in this multiplayer was always extremely frustrating, and way too overpowered to be used.
Sometimes it is needed, but other times man we really hate this one. The scorpion returned to Halo Infinite since Combat Evolved as an even more powerful weapon against the enemy. Any time your opposing team sees the scorpion, just expect there to be a rainfall of grenades heading your way.
The Scorpion not only has space for a driver and a heavy cannon, but a second slot for another player to use the machine gun. Both of which are extremely lethal and broken for any team to use. This weapon really takes advantage in any big team multiplayer map to destroy enemies and conquer.
There is no question as to why the battle rifle is also among the most broken weapons in Halo. This weapon is the most primarily used weapon in all of Halo competitive in Halo Infinite. The battle rifle resembles as the M4 of all Halo weapons, but with a three-shot burst that overly damages the opposing players.
If you have great aim, the battle rifle is deadly to use and will frustrate many opposing players or even call you a cheater. This is why the Battle Rifle is ranked as one of the most broken Halo weapons of all time.
