This list of powerful guns in gaming wouldn’t be complete without pointing out the true classic; the BFG. This big f’ing gun is capable of smoking an entire room full of baddies with a single pull of its experimental trigger. By firing huge green blasts of plasma energy, it sweeps through demonic matter like butter, destroying everything in its wake.
The BFG stands as one of the most iconic and deadly weapons in gaming history, regardless of genre or release era. It has appeared in other classic shooting games like Quake, and receives nods and homages with high frequency in the genre. Whether you’re stuck in a corner and trying to survive waves of demons or simply aiming to do the most damage possible, the BFG is your best friend in DOOM.
