Guns are a perfect addition to any Minecraft game. Whether you’re just wanting to kill mobs easier, defend yourself from friends or build a role-playing server. There are many types of guns available too, not just those which can damage enemies, but those which can defy gravity or allow you to teleport.
Mods massively change Minecraft, taking it to a whole new level. The great thing is that there are millions of mods available, with them covering practically every category and genre that you can think of. Unfortunately, mod capability and support varies massively between PC, PS4, Xbox and Pocket Edition. All of the mods shown in this list are for Java Edition only.
All the buttons below will link back to Curse Forge, where you can download these mods for Minecraft. For more Minecraft Mod Lists, make sure to check out our Mods section! The list below is in no particular order.
First up, we have the Portal Gun mod. This mod was obviously influenced by Valves Portal franchise. If you’ve played those games, then you should know what this mod does. Whilst equipping the Portal Gun, firing with the left click button will create a blue portal against a surface. Pressing right click will create the yellow portal somewhere else, you can then go through these for some quick transportation. Available for Minecraft 1.7, 1.10 and 1.12.
Next up is Tech Guns, which is a survival based mod adding many new weapons, armor, ores and structures to Minecraft. Guns feature reload and recoil animations, with there also being a new hostile NPC who will equip guns (seen on the screenshot above). Some of the new armor items consist of a Jetpack, Glider and Face mask which fit the mod well. You’ll need to craft these new items at workbenches, where you can also apply skins to them. Currently, this mod is available for Minecraft 1.7 and 1.12.
This well known Gun from Valves Half Life franchise has now made its way into Minecraft! It’s from the same developer as the Portal Gun mod shown above too. As you’d expect, the Gravity Gun allows you to pick up blocks and move them around freely (although they will snap back into Minecrafts grid system). It works on blocks and mobs! Gravity Gun is available for Minecraft 1.8, 1.10 and 1.12.
MrCrayfish’s Gun Mod
MrCrayfish’s Gun Mod is another popular choice. It’s a bit different to other weapon mods. Instead of adding multiple weapons, this mod adds a single weapon which is highly customizable. You can adjust the barrels and scopes, with the current weapons consisting of a Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Grenade Launcher, Minigun and Bazooka. Right now, this gun mod is only available for Minecraft 1.12.
Vic’s Modern Warfare Mod
The Modern Warfare mod adds everything you need, plus more. All of the guns are high quality 3D models with custom animations, and the same goes to the armor items. These weapons have a unique customization system, weapon skins, attachments, scopes, backpacks, gadgets, grenades, props, new sounds and so much more. Vic’s Modern Warfare mod is available for Minecraft 1.10, 1.11 and 1.12.
Decimation: Zombie Apocalypse
Decimation isn’t just based around guns and weapons. Instead, it is an entire zombie survival styled mod. It features weapons, armor, blood, gore, upgradable skills and more. There are even safe-zones where you can trade and collect some much-needed items. Unfortunately, this mod is only available for Minecraft 1.7.
Stefinus 3D Guns Mod
Stefinus 3D Guns is a mod which adds it adds 5 new guns to Minecraft. These are the P90 (SMG), the MP7 (SMG), the Galil (Assault Rifle), the M14 DMR (Semi-Auto Sniper) and the Remington M47 (Shotgun). There’s also 2 attachments available, the silencer and red-dot sight. Like other mods in this list, this mod is only available for those of you playing on Minecraft 1.7.
Next up is Counter Guns, which is a great mod for anyone who plays Valves Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Currently, it adds 7 new guns to Minecraft and 4 new grenades. The mod features headshots, spray patterns (not the same as those in CSGO), a kill feed when someone is killed by a weapon and even the same sounds from CSGO.

Diamond Caliber is a Minecraft mod which adds new guns, armor items, grenades, structures, mobs and more. In total, it adds 23 new guns, with some being able to have skins applied to them. The mod also makes a few changes to the Desert biome, making it more hostile, but also containing more loot. Inside a Desert, you might find hostile tanks which you’ll have to battle. This mod is available for Minecraft 1.12.
Finally, we have Torched. It adds 3 new items into Minecraft, which are the Torch Gun, Torch Rocket and Torch Launcher. The most practical is the Torch Gun. You’ll need to charge it up with Flint & Steel. Once you’ve done so, you can fire torches onto the walls in-front of you, a great addition to cave mining. Currently, Torched is available for Minecraft 1.8, 1.10 and 1.12.
