Barrett M95 is a sniper rifle and has the highest damage rate among all the weapons in the game. The gun can eliminate the opponent in a single shot. If you get your hands on one, you can tackle every long-range fight in the game; however, make sure you have a good aim.

If you are beginner and want high power in your hands, go with AK47. (Picture: Warner Bros. Games)

AK47 is an assault rifle with a high damage rate, decent recoil, which makes it a better and more accurate gun than other assault rifles. AK47 is good for beginners and is highly effective in killing the Ridden in close range.

Scar is similar to AK47, but it has a higher damage rate, which is a plus point; however, it has a higher recoil, making it a little less friendly. If you are able to tackle the recoil of Scar, then this gun is definitely a beast.

If you want good accuracy and a high damage rate, then UMP45 is the one for you. It is an SMG and has the best stats among all the submachine guns. The only con it has is its low fire rate.

While UZI might not deliver damage like other guns in this list, its high firing rate can be a lot helpful sometimes. While it might not be your first choice, you can pick it as your secondary weapon.
