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?
