Genius madman blasts the unholy crap out of real-life Rage mutant with real-life Rage guns

We're quite big fans of FPS Russia's YouTube channel here at Radar. If you're not familiar with it, the conceit is that a delightfully crazy man identifying himself as Professional Russian (who may or may not actually be Russian) gets his hands on a ludicrous number of ludicrous, real-life guns and tests them out for his and your amusement. It's must-see viewing for anyone who's ever enjoyed an FPS, and as an extra-specially-exciting bonus, his latest video is a themed special based around the enemies and weapons of id Software's rather bloody stunning looking Rage.

One full-size Rage mutant, one full-size rapid-fire, mag-loading shotgun, one full-size assault rifle, one full-size EXPLODING-GODDAMN-CROSSBOW. That's what you get here, and hilarity, it doth inevitably ensue.

    that "small localized explosive" is called tanerite. it blows up if its hit too hard. like with a bullet. and the exploding crossbow is real. it seems there is some of the tanerite in a thin aluminum tip. on impact, it shakes in the tip and explodes. and once you realize how much it costs to legally own all that, and do all that, then you realize how cool it actually is! so after you spend the 6,000+ USD a year to be able to do that, then, at that point i think you can say how "not cool" this video is.

    Wait, why are his videos "cool"? He shoots a shotgun at a dummy, then an AK, then a crossbow. He sticks small localized explosives in the dummy so it explodes when he hits them. SOOPER KEWL

    That's some fine detective work there, Lou. How on Earth did you ever divine that info all by yourself?

    Yeah this guy is cool, but if I recall, only about 1 year ago, GamesRadar posted an article on how "some idiot" shot the crap out of his copy of Modern Warfare 2. (it just made me laugh seeing the same idiot being praised hehe.)

    Now THATS a nice video for 7 in the morning.

    As awesome as that was (and as much as I'm now looking forward to RAGE AND the exploding Crossbow), WHY the F*CK did the Automatic rifle make ti EXPLODE!?

    It's definitely an unexplained wtf moment. The 12 gauge even had a small explosion.

    i noticed this when he was doing a vid about a sniper rifle... i thought it'd be the results of shooting a high caliber rifle shot at a very somewhat close range, and never questioned it. now tho... it seems they got "artificial" detonations in there. somewhere. xD still good clips tho. ;)

    A while back he had a video explaining that his life-size models have pinpoint areas that activate explosives when shot. I think it was the first zombie one, but I'm not sure
  • Gameguy94 - September 1, 2011 5:19 p.m.

    He uses an explosive called tannerite (or something like that) and it explodes when shot. He usually puts them in the targets for a more dramatic shot.

    FPS Russia is awesome. His appearance on Epic Meal Time was epic

    @DavidHoughton Where is the new Gamesradar UK podcast?
  • jackthemenace - September 1, 2011 6:05 a.m.

    I am also interested in the knowing of this.
  • GR_DavidHoughton - September 1, 2011 8:19 a.m.

    We're working on it, fear not. You will hear more soon. Sorry I can't be more specific yet.
  • MrRaVeN420247 - September 1, 2011 1:18 p.m.

    Can't wait for the new podcast. Lord Houghton, maybe you can tell me something. Where's Cundy???

    Am I the only one that thinks this guy's a humungous tool?
