    What about the hidden scarab gun on Halo 2. That thing can obliterate absolutely anything with 1 bullet. You can fire it from way up in the air as well.

    What about the Wunderwaffe DG-2 in call of duty: WAW, killing zombies in large hordes with one bullet, the thing gets even more over powered when upgraded wiping out every single zombie in the map with one shot.
