What Are The Strongest Weapons In The Finals

The outcome of your matches in The Finals is heavily dependent on the weapons and gadgets you choose. Gadgets can be a hit or miss. Sometimes you can even play without using one at all if you have a solid team for support. However, our choice of weapon will dictate how we fight heavily. The game is very fast-paced and tactical, so you’ll have to be on your toes during matches.

Going up against someone can be risky, but not if you have the strongest weapon, a sledgehammer, which deals the most damage. There won't be much the other competitors can do if you can limit fights and corner them.

V95

The V95 pistol is one of the most versatile weapons from the light build class. It has high damage and is perfect for close-range encounters. We highly recommend this weapon as it can easily pass off to be the best weapon in the game. We have listed other light build weapons but this by far tops all of them given you have enough time to master it.

XP-54

The XP-54 is an SMG that can be worth your time. It is the game's rendition of the legendary MP5. The XM-54 is one of the strongest weapons in the SMG class for its sheer accuracy and the use of a scope. It may not rate high on damage, but coupling it with its high fire rate and low recoil, you can easily take down any player with just a burst of headshots. 

AKM

Loved by most and used by many, the AKM is a common weapon that you have the ability to start within the game. Designed after the AK-47, this weapon has a decent fire rate and relatively high damage for medium builds. You can excel at battles from medium to long range given you can handle the rapid-fire recoil.

R. 357

This six-shooter is deadly in close combat battles. It is by far the strongest pistol in the game, boasting a high damage rate. Be aware of its recoil as it can easily be unmanageable if you are straight-up hip firing. However, if you can manage to land two to three precise shots, you will be unstoppable.

Lewis Gun

The Lewis Gun is a great LMG if you’re equivalent to a juggernaut in your squad. This weapon is great for its high magazine capacity and decent damage rating. It is the strongest LMG in The Finals. If you can get your shots right, this weapon can easily down, or at least heavily damage multiple enemies in one go.

Flamethrower

When the game was in its beta stages, the flamethrower was a very strong weapon in the game. However, with the latest update, it has since been nerfed. This is still a great weapon regardless and can still inflict great damage on enemies. Just beware of using it against your teammates in the heat of battle.

SA1216

Finally, the first shotgun on this list. The SA1216 is very unique and is the definition of brute force. With 12 gauge bullets, the pellet spread that this gun has is incomparable to any other shotgun in the game. Play to its strength by being in the right position when shooting this weapon as it may not be as effective if shot at enemies too far away from you.

The Model 1887 is another great shotgun that you can use for medium builds. While this shotgun has a decent range, you’ll be crippled by its low fire rate. We suggest using this tactically as a finishing shot to enemies to confirm your kill. It has a high damage rate so be sure to be precise when aiming at enemies.

LH1

The LH1 is extremely powerful when you can master it. It has one of the quickest times to kill in the game, the gun will shoot off to both sides due to recoil but don't let that stop you from giving it a try.

FCAR

The FCAR has a smaller clip size than the AKM but is more accurate with a better range. It has the same damage as the AKM but is better at long-range conflicts. Comparatively, you can say this has better damage as it is far more accurate than the AKM. 

Sword

Facing Sword users can be frustrating. Sword users in the game can be difficult to damage as they are highly agile and dash around the map. To maximize the sword’s power, equip yourself with an ability such as a Cloaking Device with a Stun Gun or Glitch Grenade to master moving in the shadows.

CL-40

The CL-40, a grenade launcher, falls short in elimination compared to a full-fledged rifle but you can cause massive damage in areas with high enemy traffic. It is also great for destroying structures in various game modes.

Throwing Knives

Throwing Knives made it to our list of the strongest weapons because they can be effective mostly in close-range quick kills. They have great damage if you actually get your throws on point.

Which One Do You Want To Pick For Your Battle?

That concludes our list of the strongest weapons in The Finals! Each of these weapons was hand-picked after rigorous testing in matches. Our top pick for an all-around weapon would be the V95 Pistol as you have versatility and agility under your wing to gather quick eliminations!
