In Minecraft, in-game violence is rendered to just a sword and bow, and maybe a pickaxe if you have no other option. However, mods have granted us the luxury of having to choose literally thousands of guns. These guns can range from small to large impact, normal to completely insane, or experimental guns that you wouldn’t see usually. For these mods, combat, and multi-playing with other players are upgraded drastically, while still keeping the vanilla friendliness in check. In this list, the mods are placed in their certain ranking based on these criteria: how vanilla-friendly, their outstanding quality, how playable, and how effective. Ideally, these mods would be perfect for a Minecraft shooter competition, a laser tag-themed world, or a hunter competition. Now, let’s run through these unique Minecraft gun mods that shake things up a bit! 

10. Tech Guns 


Starting off, we have the Tech Guns mod, a mod that is somewhat graphic in means of defeating mobs, but very fun. Tech Guns is centered on aliens, explosions, high-impact mob defeat, and of course, “techy” weaponry. This mod has a variety of features that make it stand out from most gun mods, such as the mob defeat effect, armor, hard-to-beat mobs, high-quality guns, and more. Regarding the “somewhat graphic” aspect, this mod gives a realistic and gore-kill effect once you defeat a mob, along with smooth reload animations for the guns. This mod would be great for a competition, tournament, or hunting Minecraft game in which you play with several other players. Combat is significantly made better, and the vanilla game is upgraded just a slight bit, making the experience with this mod worth the while. 

What’s fun about this mod:

  • Includes mobs that are challenging 
  • Smooth animations and details 
  • Craft armor and other gadgets

5. Elemental Guns 

Minecraft Mod Review: ELEMENTAL GUNS!

The next mod in this list is a bit different compared to the last few mods. Elemental Guns allow you to use a few types of guns: the fire gun, water gun, air gun, earth gun, and a recently added gun, the explosive gun. If you assumed that each of these guns did exactly what their names suggested, then you are correct! The fire gun simply shoots fire at the target, engulfing that ‌target in flames. Second, the water gun shoots water anywhere and still causes damage to the target if hit, making it worthy in combat. The air gun shoots air at the target, forcing them to bounce back in the air and land on the ground, further affecting their health. The earth gun, funnily, shoots dirt, trees, and saplings onto the target if hit. Last, the explosive gun causes explosions and places TNT on the target. If all of these guns are used during a night of fighting mobs, your combat strategy will be incredibly effortless. Zombies and Creepers can approach you, but then you pull out your air gun and blow them back to where they were. The fire gun is also a great tool to use against more zombies and spiders. 

What’s fun about this mod:

  • Fewer yet very effective guns 
  • Each gun has its own purpose 
  • Great for mob fighting

This mod has decently powerful guns, and while being simplistic as they are, they keep the true Minecraft look.
