If you’re a gamer looking to take the hobby to the next level, look no further than these five awesome homemade weapons. They range from the Assassin’s Creed arm blade you see above to a retro-looking steampunk Portal gun. Continue reading to see them all.
5. Portal Gun
Gamer / artist Volpin is back at it again, and this time, he’s created a second real-life Portal gun for the Child’s Play charity, founded by Penny Arcade. In this revision, the “aim was to duplicate as many parts of the original Portal Gun as possible.”
4. Mass Effect M-29 Incisor Rifle
For those unfamiliar with Mass Effect and its weapons, the M-29 Incisor rifle is basically “designed to overload active defenses such as shields; firing three shots with each pull of the trigger, the Incisor’s burst is so fast that all three rounds will be in the target by the time the barrel has moved a millimeter, increasing its stopping power without sacrificing accuracy.” This beauty was designed by Zprops.
3. The Legend of Zelda Sword and Shield
If nothing else, this fan-made (by Fiberglass Blades) The Legend of Zelda sword and shield set is fit for a real-life action movie based on the game. Plus, “it only looks heavy, thanks to a lavish helping of automotive paint that gives it that ‘steel’ appearance.” However, the sword was reinforced with aluminum and fiberglass rods.
2. Steampunk Portal Gun
This amazing steampunk Portal gun would go quite well with this Optimus Prime helmet and / or Iron Man suit to say the least. It was created by deviantART member batman-n-bananas and includes “parts from an antique clock, hangers, plumbing parts, a plant pot, various lids, plastic tub, a pocket laser disc, lightbulbs, ‘metal covering from an old hairbrush’ and gallons and gallons of glue.”
1. Assassin’s Creed Arm Blade
DeviantART user Midnight Angel created a real-life version of the Assassin’s Creed hidden arm blade that actually works. Yes, “using a drawer opening mechanism, a spring for a screen door, and a throwing knife, the weapon works surprisingly smoothly.”
