"Now I think everyone can agree that there are a lot of things that make a game good. There's the aesthetics, the storyline, the game mechanics, but the most important part of any game to me is just plain killing sh*t. With that in mind, I'd like to present to you my top 5 favorite video game weapons."

BEST VIDEO GAME WEAPONS is the 3rd episode of Top 5 Friday, hosted by Matthew Sohinki. It was released on October 12, 2012.


Tope 5 Weapons in Video Games


  1. BFG9000 from Doom: A unrivalled destructive force of a weapon; bonus points for its name being short for "Big Fucking Gun".
  2. Dagon from Dota 2: The "biggest troll weapon" in gaming.
  3. Rocket Launcher from Quake: Packs a punch; bonus points for "exploding [targets] into blood".
  4. Insect Swarm from BioShock: Hilarious to watch, and good for trapping enemies for gunfire.
  5. Energy Sword from Halo: The best weapon because "it kills with the most style".
