Let’s face it: weapons are not aplenty in Minecraft.
There are a few ways for you to kill creepers and other annoying mobs, but they’re all similar unless you get a bit… creative.
So I put my creativity to the test and scoured the web to find some fantastic weapon mods to enhance your experience as a mob-slayer.
I know some of these are a bit over the top, but hey: that’s part of the fun isn’t it?
You can avoid mods that go too crazy like adding tanks to the game. But after playing for a bit, I sure as hell recommend you to give them a shot *wink wink*.
20. MMW – Modern Minecraft Weapons
This adds a whole lot of weapons to the game. Specifically the following:
- MP7 L118A
Where have you heard those names before, you may wonder.
In none other than the Modern Warfare games.
This mod basically adds Call of Duty weapons to Minecraft.
They’re not easy to craft, but should you happen to go ahead and do it, you will have access to a brand-new arsenal of guns that will shatter the very soul of your enemies.
Come out victorious in a blaze of glory and honor the name of Soap McTavish.
So with this you basically bring the world of Crysis into Minecraft, allowing you to try out new weapons and join the war against the Ceph.
The mod really adds tons of new weapons and even allows you to decide whether the war between factions is an ongoing one, or if you’d like to press pause.
Enter the war and avoid getting yourself killed while firing a whole new set of weapons; all of which can be operated– including the ones that belong to the aliens. How cool!
18. Decimation Mod
Well, this isn’t technically a weapons-only mod.
However I’m adding it to the list because I know those of you looking for a shooting experience are going to love it.
This mod basically turns Minecraft into a zombie survival game.
But nothing like the vanilla survival version.
You will face new enemies and difficult quests as you decide whether to side with other humans or betray them for your own personal gain.
It’s a very complex mod that adds a whole new map to boot. With this you’ll be able to live a unique and gore-ridden adventure where there’s only one goal: to survive.
17. Spectral Gun
Let’s have some fun and create a few custom guns.
And when I say custom guns, I really mean it.
The weapons ca be customized however you like, ranging from the shape for their magazine to the type of barrel that they have.
It’s up to you to craft your ideal weapon and use it in battle. Sounds like Minecraft, right?
16. World Overhaul Mod
This mod permits you to use items that traditionally belong to classes in RPG games.
It also contains a few decorations, but the main objective is to serve as an overhaul that allows you to select custom races and play the game as if you were in a real RPG.
Minecraft and RPGs, can life get better?
15. Elemental Items
The Elemental Items mod is not specifically meant to change Minecraft weapons.
Instead it adds entire sets of weapons, tools, and armor to the game.
Each set is based upon a real element ranging from fire to water, and passing through air(excuse my classy pun).
You’ll be able to create different sets that each come with various durability points. Each type of sword crafted with this modpack also deals different types of damage, and some of the pickaxes are able to mine faster than others.
It’s a complete and vanilla-like overhaul of the item log, but with tons of new features to keep you busy for weeks.
If you’re an Overwatch fan, let me stop you right there.
Please go to this mod’s page and download it right now.
You will be able to use all of your favorite Overwatch heroes in Minecraft, as well as all of their weapons.
Craft custom sets of armor that will have you resemble your favorite heroes, or simply use the weapons with the same effects as in the popular Blizzard game.
13. CST7 Weapons
Now this mod adds a whole set of new weapons and tools to the game, all of which are based upon elements found in vanilla Minecraft.
Create new battle items using glowstone or make axes out of magma. There’s an entire new universe of options for you to choose from!
12. Gods’ Weapons
I, too, wondered why this mod was called “Gods’ Weapons” at first.
I mean, what could make a weapon in Minecraft be deemed godlike?
This answered my question pretty fast.
You’ll be able to create weapons that knock your enemies hundreds of feet away, as well as hammers that strike down your foes in a single hit.
You won’t just have access to the powers of the gods, though.
You will also be able to strike down your enemies with the fury of demons using the tools belonging Hades himself. So yeah, this one is gonna evoke some mixed feelings…
11. Skyrim MC
Love Elder Scrolls? So do I! And this mod aims to transform Minecraft into Skyrim as best as possible.
You’ll be able to craft many of Skyrim’s weapons with this add-on. And even though the mod is still a work in progress, eventually you should be able to use the magical powers of TES and cast them upon mobs.
Craft items using Daedirc elements, get your hands on a Daedric Heart, and enjoy the benefits of having two of the best fantasy worlds on the planet combined in a single crossover gaming experience.
10. Parzi’s Star Wars Mod
This massive mod is meant to be played on peaceful, as all the stuff that the game comes with should still spawn. So you won’t have to worry about any vanilla nuances.
In any case, you will enter a whole new world filled with all sorts of dangers that you might’ve only seen before in the Star Wars universe.
Grab a blaster and get down to business.
Or pick up a lightsaber and destroy your foes.
This might not be a detailed weapons mod per se…. but given it adds many of the weapons that we all love form the Star Wars universe, it has earned a spot for itself in my list.
9. Otaku Craft
As the name suggests, you will be entering a world filled with many objects and ores unique to the game.
As well as new weapons that you can see and find in some of the most popular anime series on the planet.
Embark on an adventure in any random world and discover new ores, craft weapons, and enjoy the stuff you never thought could bring anime into Minecraft.
This comes with a craft guide too, which means you will always know what to use to craft your favorite items.
8. Forge Weapons+
How cool would it be to have modern weapons in Minecraft?
The creator of this mod really thought it would be pretty darn cool, as he’s added dozens of new guns to the game.
Ranging from SMGs to powerful missile launchers, this will make you think that Minecraft is an actual warzone.
You’ll be able to slay mobs as if they were soldiers.
The mod also comes with a couple of energy weapons that strive to please those who would rather have a less realistic and more futuristic approach.
Grab a laser and disintegrate your foes with a single shot. Or pick up an SMG and obliterate them in a more traditional way.
You decide which approach is how you wanna game today.
7. Last Days
Minecraft might not seem perfectly suited to be a first-person shooter.
But you will completely change the way you think if you try out this mod.
It adds new game modes which include team deathmatch and FFA.
You’ll be able to play against mobs or simply kill other players in MP servers, all while gunning for victory.
The creators of the mod say that this is the best weapons mod in the community.
I’m not sure of that, but I sure as hell love what this brings to the table.
6. Better Guns for TheGunMod
Now thismod adds over 30 new guns to the game. Darn tootin’ this is a good time!
You’ll be able to craft them really easily and use them however you want.
Get your hands on a decent set of bullets and start shooting enemies, who will be absolutely powerless against your new mighty artillery.
And be sure to use as much firepower as possible– you won’t want those pesky spiders coming back for revenge.
5. Star Wars Mod
This mod adds new weapons, vehicles, and a whole bunch of Star Wars stuff to the game!
Personally, I absolutely love Star Wars.
So I would’ve added this mod to my list even if it wasn’t super good. But don’t worry though – it’s pretty great.
Just a shame that projects like this seem to end up abandoned when they were on the verge of greatness… but hey, at least we get to enjoy the beta version.
And for the record that beta version can still run just fine in the newest version of Minecraft.
With this installed you’ll get some cool pieces of artwork as well. Represent the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire by adding custom banners to your base.
4. Monolith Pack
Looking for heavy artillery and machines of war that will obliterate anything in sight?
Oh, boy, you’ve found your match. This mod adds a whole bunch of tanks and war vehicles, and you’ll be able to ride them to war (or to use them against zombies).
Once you get into it you’ll get the hang of it pretty quickly.
And I’m sure you’ll grow to enjoy this mod as quickly as a I did.
It’s truly amazing the things that can be done in Minecraft when a competent modder makes it his mission to create something good.
3. Call to Battle 2
This fantastic mod transforms Minecraft into a Call of Duty spinoff.
Lots of crossovers in this list, huh?
You’ll be transported back to the days of WW2, and you’ll have to use all of your cunning skill to survive.
Select your favorite game mode and dive into war by wielding one of 50 guns added with this fantastic war mod.
Battle on many historical conflicts and experience what it may have felt like to be part of that time in history. Only, with Minecraft.
Tetra is a fantastic mod that allows you to customize certain items and weapons in the game.
Granted, it doesn’t really add new weapons to Minecraft.
But it does allow you to use a special crafting table to combine parts of different items with one another.
For example, you could pick up a diamond sword and combine it with other materials to make it stronger. Cool, right?
The mod truly takes customization to a whole new level.
And while it’s not one of the better-known mods in the community, it’s still a fantastic mod that I highly recommend trying out.
1. Age of Weapons
Adding a grand total of 290 items to the game, Age of Weapons is by far the biggest weapons mod ever created for Minecraft.
You will be able to get weapons that existed in the medieval ages up to weapons that were used as recently as colonial times.
And everything inbetween.
It’s up to you to decide which ones you’ll want to use.
But this mod doesn’t come with any crazy assault rifles, sadly. So you’ll need another mod if you want more high-tech stuff.
But this does come with new materials and items that will let you craft every single one of these fantastic weapons, so definitely give it a go if you’re into the classics.
