GTA Online is actually a pretty challenging game, especially in a hostile lobby with griefers. In those situations, gear yourself up with the most damaging weapon possible is the key. In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 weapons in GTA Online with the highest damage.

1. Heavy Sniper Mk II

The Heavy Sniper Mk II is the upgraded version of the Heavy Sniper, and one of the best guns in the game. While it has the same rate of fire and multiplier against other players (x1.39), the MK II has better damage and can instantly kill a player with special ammo.

This weapon is very effective against vehicles and aircraft. Being an advanced gun, the Heavy Sniper MK II is very moddable. Players can equip it with Thermal scope, Suppressor and Long-range barrels to deal with various situations in combat. Furthermore, it can use three different types of ammunition that inflict special effects.

2. Pump Shotgun MK II

The Vom Feuer Pump Shotgun Mk II is a weapon that appears in GTA Online as part of the Doomsday Heist update. The Pump Shotgun MK2 costs $82,500 to convert and is much more powerful than its base version. The best part about the weapon is the range - you can even use it in mid range fights without having to change.

While the Assault Shotgun is more practical, the Pump Shotgun MK2 is much more entertaining to use. Players can load it up with explosive ammo that's very difficult to counter. Furthermore, explosive ammo also triggers a crazy ragdoll effect upon a kill.

3. Homing Launcher

This is the only way you can effectively deal with enemies' vehicles early on. You don't need to waste time aiming or judging trajectories when using this weapon - just point it at the target and let the missile lock on.

A well-shot missile is likely a death sentence for unarmored helicopters and slow planes.

4. Widowmaker

The Widowmaker is a futuristic counterpart of the Minigun - it shoots plasma instead of ordinary bullets. Based on the numerous white alien skulls on the main housing, the Widowmaker is likely to have an alien origin. It is based on the Republic Space Rangers' plasma machine gun.

Its mechanics are about the same as the minigun except for the higher damage. You can buy the weapon for $499,999 at Ammu-Nation.

5. Unholy Hellbringer

The Unholy Hellbringer is a Machine Guns Weapon featured in GTA Online, added to the game as part of the 1.46 Arena War update on January 8, 2019. Similar to the Up-n-Atomizer, the Unholy Hellbringer is an alien plasma rifle. It has three barrels, a drum-shaped ammo magazine, and a small stock.
