MMOs With Guns – The 9 Best Shooter MMORPGs

Are swords, daggers, and magical wands just not your thing in MMOs? Would you rather wield a high-powered rifle, dual guns, or a bazooka? We have selected our favorite MMOs with guns in the list below

Our list is in random order, but all feature guns. Take a look and find out which one of these shooter MMORPGs suit your playstyle. From classic fantasy MMOs lightly featuring guns to all-out FPS-MMOs.

New World

MMOs With Guns - The 9 Best Shooter MMORPGs 1

Amazon Game Studio’s New World isn’t exactly what you would classify as a shooter, but the game’s Musket lets you aim and hunt down animals, monsters, and even other players in PvP in a way that’s quite different from other traditional MMOs.

New World is a classless MMO where you build your character based on skills, style, weapons, and gear, so why not build a character that specializes in Muskets? The Musket might not be the most powerful spec for every playstyle but it sure is fun to take down an enemy from hundreds of yards away.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

Swtor has a wide range of available blaster rifles and guns

While the Jedi and Sith in SWTOR go to battle with their legendary lightsabers, the other classes heavily favor guns of all sorts.

Troopers wield heavy blaster cannons and rockets. Smugglers use either single or dual wield lightweight blasters.

On the Empire side, Bounty Hunters have a wide arsenal of guns and weapons at their disposal and Imperial Agents use high-powered blaster rifles.

Star Trek Online

Star trek online lets you command your own ship

More of a Star Trek fan than a Star Wars fan? We’ll your in luck because Star Trek Online is also a great MMO and it also features a selection of futuristic guns.

In STO you play as the captain of your own ship that you can control but can also “beam down” and adventure on foot through various adventures and settings.

STO is even available on Xbox and Playstation 4 if PC gaming isn’t your cup of tea.

Star Citizen

The gun design in Star Citizen is very impressive

The main draw of Star Citizen might be its space simulation and ships, but the guns in this game look absolutely amazing as well, and a lot of effort goes into designing the game’s weaponry.

Simply do a Google image search for “Star Citizen guns” and you’ll know what we mean.

Destiny 2

Destiny 2 guns

The Bungie giant is one of the most well-known FPS-MMOs, featuring a vast range of guns and equipment, from machineguns, shotguns, and sniper rifles to grenade launchers.

Character progression is achieved through PvE or PvP gameplay.

Destiny 2 is available on PC, Xbox, Playstation, and Stadia.

Planetside 2

Planetside 2 can even boast a Guinness World Record for most players in a single battle, with 1283 combatants in one epic fight.

Daybreak confirmed last year that Planetside 3 is in development.

Secret World Legends

Secret World Legends feature guns of different sorts

The Secret World has been praised as one of the most original and different games in the MMO market. It was re-released as Secret World Legends in 2017.

The world is inspired heavily by H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen King and should be a hit for fans of horror and mystery.

The game has a great plot, PvE and PvP combat, and a huge range of abilities.

Weapons of all sorts are available including various guns.

PSO2 NGS is missing from this list. Guns and gameplay is the main reason I started playing, after being burnt out my fantasy.

Another one with guns, and lots of fun, is the MMORPG 7 Days To Die.
