The humble weapon. Few things make a game awesome like an outrageous piece of weaponry. Right up until Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came along and singlehandedly spearheaded a charge to make videogame weapons as boring as possible, the prospect of what weapons would be included in a game was always a subject of much glee.

We want to celebrate the most sublime firepower out there. The best and most unique weapons that gaming has ever seen. Whether it’s outrageously over-the-top, incredibly satisfying to use, or downright hilarious, we want to know some of the best gaming weapons you’ve ever tooled around with.

Here’s a few of my favourites to get the ball rolling.

The Topsy Turvy Bomb - Armed & Dangerous

Gravity Gun - Half-Life 2

10mm HV Penetrator - F.E.A.R.

Plasma Grenades - Halo

Super Sheep - Worms

What are some of your favourite gaming guns? Do you prefer realism or of-the-wall designs when it comes to your gaming firepower?

The Magnum in any game that has that boi. Six rounds, enough to put down anything that moves. Not much dakka, but it packs a punch, a lot of punches.

Pistol. Especially a silenced pistol. Great mobility, excellent fire power with headshot, nice accuracy, easy to hide. HITMAN .

The M1 Garand in any WW2 game. The satisfying ping when the clip pops out lets you know that your Nazi eradicating work is done

Ahh, good old Plasma Grenades, I had a lot of fun moments with those: throw them at a grunt and start loghing. In multyplayer htey were the master troll: you go through all the dangers of running in the open to get to a glorious scorpion

Not sure about the names, but there's these guns in Borderlands that are tossed as an explosive whenever the clip is empty. Who needs to reload?
