One of the best things about Minecraft is its huge modding community. Since the game's release back in 2011, thousands of mods have been created for it, adding contents like new mobs, biomes, new structures, and event weapons. Amongst them, the mods that add guns are probably the most creative of the bunch.

In a game like Minecraft, where low-tech weapons like swords or axes are dominant, having guns to play around with is actually a lot of fun. In this article, we are going to showcase the top 10 best Minecraft gun mods in 2022.

1. Flytre's Gun mod

Flytre's gun mod adds over 15 guns into the game. They vary in features and purposes - the roster features classics like assault rifles, shotguns, and snipers alongside sci-fi weapons like volt gun or slime gun.

Players can create a brand new workbench block to craft and upgrade guns. Furthermore, this mod also includes scopes and a custom HUD that tracks your ammo for you. The best part about Flytre's mod, however, is the particle effect when your bullet hits enemies. This makes the weapons much more immersive.

2. Blockfront mod

Blockfront is a brand new Minecraft mod that turns Minecraft into a World War 2 shooter game. Unlike other mods that stick with the usual modern weapons, Blockfront adds guns and vehicles from the WW2 period. This is actually a very unique and creative idea, making the mod stands out from its competitors.

To start off with, you'll need a Tinker Table and at least one powersuit item - the helmet, torso,legs, boots, or tool. The powersuit items are useless on their own, but when you access a tinker table, it will list the modules you can put in that item, and tell you the component cost.

8. Portal Gun Totality

This mod recreates the Portal Gun from Valve's hit game, Portal. It allows you to create two portals that connect to each other, which you can then use to travel through.


You can now go on creating portals and taking teleportation in Minecraft to the next level.

9. Guns Without Roses

This mod adds a few simple Terraria-like guns, several ammo types to go with them, and a few enchantments. It is meant as a simple vanilla+ish mod and a foundation for other (upcoming) mods to use its systems, and not as a big, fully fledged content mod. It also does not add roses of any kind.

Guns fire instantly with a short cooldown, and their projectiles are fast and not affected by gravity. However, they deal much less damage than bows, unless you invest in more expensive guns and ammo.
