      I have to say The Auger. Shooting threw walls is always extremely useful but it's balanced to the point where it doesn't break the game or have any major advantage over any other weapon.

      The Bullseye, those red pointy things (probably to keep it cool) made it look good, and it was handy at close range against those unbalanced HVAP Wraiths in the competitive MP (they ruined part 2's competitive MP IMO).

      But the most powerful (at least in the single player) gun for me was the HE .44 Magnum, it had the most powerful bullets, and it was satisfying seeing your enemies explode after detonating the bullets.

      It has to be the L-11 Dragon from FOM, I miss building up that flame & blasting people with it for the kill, or using 4-5 spurts against the chimera making them extremely easy to kill. God I miss that gun...
