Ain’t nothing like a little weapon ogling.
I’ve only included physical weapons for this list – sorry, no magic today folks!

10. Frying Pan
No lie – Buffy knocked Ted out with a frying pan and Anya hit a Knight of Byzantium with a frying pan. The thing is quite handy.
9. Holy Water
Holy Water has helped the Scoobies out multiple times. It saved the day in “Helpless”, because there was no way that Buffy was getting out of that ordeal using any type of stake.
And in “Lover’s Walk”, Buffy and Angel got to throw them like cute little bundles of burning vampire death. You go Holy Water!
Crossbows are great. They are fully functional and provide great comedic relief.
Plus people look like bad asses when holding a crossbow. See here:
7. Olaf the Troll God’s Enchanted Hammer
This weapon is great because it’s almost bigger than Buffy is.
How would you like to be smacked in the face with that? I always cringe when Buffy swings it at Glory.
Yet somehow even after that blow to the head Glory’s hair still looks great afterwards.
6. The Rocket Launcher
I think what makes the rocket launcher so amazing is because it’s so unexpected. Like, Buffy has a crossbow and then just pulls out a FREAKING ROCKET LAUNCHER AND BLOWS SHIT UP.
And again, this is a weapon that may be bigger than Buffy. As with the crossbow, this is a weapon that can double as excellent comedic relief.
5. Hunga Munga
I wish we could have seen Buffy kick some more ass with this thing.
Does anyone know if she kept it at the end of this episode? I hope she kept it.
4. The Blessed Sword (and The Sword of Virtuous Knight)
Sorry to be confusing – these are just the proper names for the swords Buffy and Angel use in their duel in the Season 2 finale, respectively.
3. Faith’s Knife
THIS KNIFE. REALLY IS A THING OF BEAUTY.
If I had one of those knifes I would chop vegetables with it and feel super freaking cool.
2. The Scythe (Mʔ)
As drool-worthy as weapons get.
1. THE MOTHER EFFIN STAKE
Does it get more iconic? NO. NO IT DOESN’T.
When there’s a lot at stake, this weapon always comes through. You can’t beat a classic. Especially one that is functional enough to shove down your sleeve.
Whoo hoo weapons! Which one is your favorite?
