COD Black Ops: Weapons Damage Chart and Garbage Guns

By Updated on

We have reported on a number of aspects of Call of Duty: Black Ops, including your best weapon and perk setups and the cheat code to unlock the zombie maps. Something that we haven’t mentioned yet, is just how bad the guns are!

Whilst some COD gamers have experience issues with connections on the PS3, these seem to be getting better since the latest patch. Now that the game is working a little better for PS3 gamers, you will see what we mean by bad guns.

Lono over at sarcasticgamer.com has written an interesting article about ‘The Garbage Guns of Black Ops’. According to Lono, you should avoid the Enfield, Uzi, M16, Stoner 63 and the HS 10. There are reasons provided for each gun and alternatives too, some of the alternatives are the HK21, MPL, Scorpion, FAL, M14, AUG, RPK, SPAS and the FAMAS. We think that everyone has their own preferential weapons and setups that they get used to and stick to.


We’ve managed to find some further information about the guns on Black Ops. First we found a spreadsheet that has the actual damage provided by each gun, which you can view here. Interestingly, we also found a weapons damage chart and a developed flash tool that shows you the weapons damage, spread, recoil and their reloading time. you can view this here.

The weapon damage guides would be especially useful for someone who is just starting on Black Ops but also for the hardcore gamer that may have been wondering ‘Which is the most powerful assault rifle?’

What do you think of the weapons damage results? Are the damage charts in line with your stats within Black Ops? Let us know in the comments below.

    I love the Enfield, I'm on my second prestige and level 32ish, pretty much all of them 32 levels have come using the Enfield with a pistol as secondary…..

  • mw2 fanboy

    in my opinion the most worthless gun in the game is the any sniper with a silencer attachment on core

  • HAMMY330

    best gun…the one you kill with…muwahahaha

  • pwnkiller16

    well i think the galil with acoge scope is good but that my opinoin

    the best gun with over-all good stats is the Famas, because it has an extremly high fire-rate almost making it a Submachine gun and the recoil somewhat helps you get headshots if you first aim at the chest! The only downside that i can see is that you run out of ammo pretty quick so to fix this just have scavenger as a perk and extended mags as you attachment choice. The iron sights are great so there is no need to buy a red dot sight. It will take some time to master but if you can conquer the recoil and use it to your advantage then you will be getting chopper gunner whenever you want!

  • THE FALLE7V

    ak47 is the best gun in the game. its damage is always a one shot in the open and recoils only straight up get used to the gun and you will see. silencer if you play hardcore. no sights use iron sights. thermal with a silencer on array hc snd i went 15 n 3! good hip fire too.

    Agreed, the Enfield may seem suckish at first for low damage and slow rate of fire, but when you give it a chance, it proves to be a very capable weapon in the right hands
