When it comes to overpowered weaponry in gaming, players will have two distinct feelings: admiration or hatred. You were either the player who wielded the overpowered weapons to their ability, or you were the victim of that player. Whether you were on the giving or receiving end of these weapons, you will remember their ability to ruin any gaming session.
Halo: Combat Evolved’s Pistol
In the countless sequels and spinoffs from the Halo franchise, no weapon has ever been able to work as efficiently as Combat Evolved’s pistol. Many Halo players would trade rifles for the side arm, chasing down AI grunts, friends and opponents alike with ease. The pistol was easy to handle, packed a powerful punch and featured a quick reload animation. If there is a single weapon in the Halo franchise that can hang out in the same room as the pistol, it would probably be Halo 2’s enemy homing energy sword.
