Game news DOOM, Gears of War, Ratchet & Clank … The 10 Most Powerful FPS | TPS Weapons
Time to get the big guns out! Yes, for this new list, we invite you to wander weapon in hand in FPS and TPS to discover the most powerful cannons and other swords of these two popular genres of video games.
BFG 9000 (DOOM)
Let’s immediately put our two feet in the dish by starting directly with the game that democratized the FPS … We are obviously referring to DOOM first of the name which already had a substantial arsenal ranging from the iconic shotgun by the way by the chainsaw. But of course, what interests us here is the BFG 9000. Often well hidden within the different levels of the game, the BFG 9000 is a powerful cannon that projects a ball of energy that reduces everything in its path to dust. In other words, it is better to carefully keep some of your ammunition to annihilate a boss in two or three movements. Small anecdote: DOOM Eternal, the last episode to date, brought to the saga the BFG 10000. This weapon of mass destruction is used at a key moment in history to destroy a planet, just that.
The DOOM Slayer isn’t the only one with a complete and destructive arsenal. Indeed, as you progress, your survivor created from scratch in Fallout 3 can use anything and everything, such as an old gun, a crossbow or an alien blaster, to destroy ghouls or ghouls. rataupes who dare to stand in its way. But if it’s not a simple ghoul in front of you, but a Deathclaw, a gigantic creature that can bone you with a simple slap, it is advisable to have something good in your backpack. bigger. This is good since Fallout 3 offers players to use a Fat-Man. This weapon, like no other, is a launcher of mini nuclear bombs. Suffice to say that the Deathclaw will quickly become a harmless little mush.
Energy Sword (Halo)
Let’s put the guns aside for a few lines… Yes, even if Halo is a FPS series that is full of all kinds of weapons like the classic, but effective, Assault Rifle or the destroyer Chaingun, in this saga , if you want to destroy enemies as quickly as possible, better to bring a sword. But beware, this is not just any sword, but rather the Energy Sword. The latter, once equipped, can only be used once, but it kills anything it touches. Thanks to its power, this melee weapon quickly became the most popular of the license’s various multiplayer modes. If you see a Spartan approaching you dangerously with a sword made of a double bladed fluorescent blue, a hint, run away.
T.E.L.T. (Ratchet & Clank)
This time, it is on the side of the colorful TPS Ratchet & Clank that we must turn. Indeed, although cute, our favorite lombax has weapons that would make the DOOM Slayer blush. From his simple blaster to his Ravaging Glove that hurls small, destructive, bolt-hungry mechanical beings onto the battlefield, Ratchet can simply wipe out anything in sight. Corn the weapon he prefers, and rightly so, is obviously the TELT (T’Eclater La Tronche). This aptly named weapon can be found on the black market for a whopping 150,000 bolts. If you want to destroy the forces of the evil Dr. Nefarious, you know what you have to do … Note that each episode of the franchise has its own TELT, but as a rule, the weapon launches a total of 9 auto missiles. -guided on its target.
Shrinker (Duke Nukem 3D)
After the colorful world of Ratchet & Clank, let’s now take a little detour to the wacky universe of Duke Nukem 3D. Once again, in this popular FPS recounting the prowess of our brave Duke, the player can dig up a number of weapons as iconic as they are destructive. This is particularly the case with the particularly effective pump shotgun, the Nordenfeldt three-barreled machine gun, the Freezer which allows enemies to be frozen in place and, of course, the Shrinker. This oddly named weapon is a shrinking ray that can turn all enemies into tiny (and ridiculous) beings. Once small, monsters are as harmless as they are vulnerable. Now you only have one thing left to do: crush them with your size 45 boot.
Throwing Knife (Call of Duty)
The Call of Duty saga is well known for offering a full arsenal to its players, but it is an often very military arsenal that has little in the way of whimsy. Despite the presence of a few rocket launchers and other grenade launchers, few weapons do colossal damage except throwing knives … Yes, yes, you read that right. Introduced in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, throwing knives make life difficult for your opponents in the various multiplayer modes and are much more lethal than a simple assault rifle. Whether you hit your enemy’s head or even their ankle, don’t worry, your point is assured!
Rail Driver (Red Faction)
The Red Faction license is rather known for its devastating arsenal allowing to destroy everything in its path, and this, whether in Red Faction: Guerrilla, the TPS in the open world or in the very first episode. It is also on this aspect that we will focus today since the title notably features weapons as explosive as they are original. This is the case of the Fusion Rocket Launcher which digs almost any surface thanks to its highly explosive rockets. But our little preference goes to the Rail Driver side; a kind of sniper rifle that can see and shoot through walls. The kills are yours!
Gears of War
Another TPS is coming to our list and this time it’s an Xbox 360 exclusive. We are obviously referring to the very first Gears of War, a title that popularized shooter games. third person by bringing in particular a particularly welcome cover system, but we get lost… What interests us here is the varied arsenal of the title, starting with the classic Mark 2, an assault rifle equipped with a small chainsaw shaped for melee or Ray of Dawn attacks. During the adventure, it is indeed possible to use this famous ray; a devastating ray falling from the sky that reduces everything it touches to dust. Note that the Ray of Dawn is making a comeback in the suites … In other words, Boomers and Swarmers have better watch out!
Gravity Gun (Half-Life 2)
The inevitable Half-Life 2, initially offering to defeat many alien crabs or loathsome zombies with doe kicks, then allows you to arm yourself with a Gravity Gun. This weapon, which is aptly named, moves all the objects that are in your hero’s path, ideal for opening a new passage or for throwing a bunch of objects at all your opponents. Now it’s up to you to show your imagination by using a weapon cabinet or office chair. On our side, we have a little preference for the Gravity Gun and circular saw plate combo …
Golden Gun (GoldenEye 007)
If you’ve come straight from splitscreen gaming school, this last proposition will bring back some memories. Indeed, in addition to offering a successful solo allowing you to follow the adventures of James Bond, GoldenEye 007 has a local multiplayer mode where four participants can compete in small maps. If at the beginning the player starts out armed with a simple, almost harmless pistol, later on, he can find many more offensive weapons in the field, including the Golden Gun. A tribute to the 1974 film The Man with the Golden Gun (a feature film starring Roger Moore as Agent 007), this gun allows you to kill your target with a single bullet.
