I was playing Reach with a friend of mine and we were debating this. What is the best weapon ever from any of the halo games? This is including ranking based on Damage, Fire Rate, Maximum Ammo, Range, etc. Overall best weapon for everything. State your exact choice and why. Anything goes, except Orbital Strike and other special weapons.
R = Rifle
L = Launcher

I've always been a shotgun man, myself. Then again, I'm also a total ass.

I also like the DMR in Reach, even if nearly everyone else is better at using it than I am.

Personally I like the sniper rifle, it has such horrible ammo problems though. Pistol or DMR work well as secondaries to get around that though. Personally I voted Sniper/Pistol, but my friend swears by the shotgun.

Sniper pistol in the original Halo. Hands down. That thing is BOSS.

Halo CE pistol is always the best because it can one-shot hunters.

Aside from that, DMR. It's the most satisfying out of the entire series, and might actually take the most skill to use.

Melee Melee Melee.

Why bother bringing a gun to a sword fight? There just that cool. (provided you got a backup weapon for sniping)

I loved using the brute shot in halo 3, it made for a great weapon of trolling during custom matches.

Shotgun in Reach, Battle Rifle in 3 and ODST, I don't know about 2 and the pistol in 1. This is for multiplayer only. The shotgun is amazing when you pair it with active camo. I love playing mind games with my friends.

The CE assault rifle. 60 round magazine, powerful, wildly inaccurate, shoots ridiculously fast. Win.

I gotta say my favorite of all the weapons was the Brute Shot. It was nearly as powerful as a rocket launcher, the shots could bounce/ricochet, and it was one of the most powerful melee weapons until they created melee specific weapons like the Brute Hammer.

100% this. I still have fond memories of pegging kids across Hang em High with that thing.

If you want best load out. That plus Shotgun.

If we're talking what weapon I like to use in battle, either a BR for precise and powerful bullet streams, or a good old plasma rifle...or the ever loved sword.

....but my favourite weapon in the halo series is the Needler. A gun that shoots purple crystals into the enemy's body and then makes the SPONTANEOUSLY EXPLODE INTO A GLORIOUS PURPLE CLOUD. ....If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is.

Also, I'm liking the rifle variant of it. More power, less pewpew. Not a bad tradeoff.

I loved the automatic staplers in Halo 2 (SMG), but my favorite weapon of all is the f*cking gauss cannon. Man is that thing deadly.


... To bad its almost never in multiplayer anymore.

Hands down Dual Wield Plasma Pistol and Magnum; if you can't get those then the SMG, Shotgun combo was my favorite since I loved Close Combat/

The Halo 1 pistol by far. Its more powerful and more accurate on a shot per shot basis than anything except the Sniper Rifle.
