"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
This important-sounding quote was spoken by some guy after you die during Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and it still holds true. Weapons in videogames, too, keep getting more and more powerful, yet there are still ones included in games that make us wish we had the raw power of some sticks and stones instead. We're not talking the purposely-terrible joke weapons that show up sometimes (like the mop in Chrono Trigger or the Bubble Gun in Earthworm Jim 2) we're talking the weapons the developers thought you'd actually use at some point. These are the 15 worst weapons in videogame history.
15. Needler (Halo: Combat Evolved)
The Needler can actually be a pretty effective weapon in Halo assuming the target is totally still, your aim is on, and you have enough ammo. Unfortunately, players tend to move around in Halo (sometimes in different directions), getting the aim dead-on can be difficult, and if you don't have enough ammo, you're doomed. Hell, it's not like they're not being upfront with us at least to "needle" typically means "to goad, provoke, or tease." Basically, it's a weapon designed to annoy your enemies not kill them. And unfortunately, "killing" is a pretty important thing to do in Halo. Luckily, the Needler was improved in subsequent Halo games, stealing the raw power once held by the mighty Pistol.
