    " a giant, lazy, obstinate St. Bernard which refuses to move and is carrying a bag full of bricks and is also dead." Best simile ever.

    Mostly i am just seeing a lot of hate here on peoples favorite weapons for games that are not designed for normal humans or use tech we do not understand.

    Pointing out obvious flaws in how these weapons would not work in real life (the stated premise of the article) ≠ hate.

    You totally did not get my point. Some of their facts are still wrong when it comes to real world use and most of these weapons do not work in the real world because ill say it in this post too THEY ARE NOT MADE FOR NORMAL HUMANS OR USE TECH THAT DOES NOT EXIST IN OUR WORLD. I am not including every weapon and their assessment in this. You cant properly compare weapons in videogames and bring them into reality when they are not meant for use by us normal people.

    About M-490 Blackstorm... Firstly, it doesn't actually fire black holes, they're called singularities, and secondly, they're the product of Element Zero or Eezo, a fictional element discovered in the mass effect universe that can manipulate matter. If someone has a large enough concentration of Eezo in their body, they gain access to Biotics and can form those singularities themselves, which the Blackstorm essentially imitates, although at higher than typical power - near what a character has if fully trained to enhance the ability's damage output.

    The Trey Kings Sickle and Sickle Sword, from Champions Online. This game has its fair share of silly weapons, but these two really take the cake. The Sickle is a sword-sized, sickle-shaped, unnecessarily ornated, but mostly overweigth looking piece of metal. If that doesn't sound impractical enough, how about the fact that characters are holding it BACKWARDS, with the sharp side facing towards them and only a small spike facing the enemy? The Sickle Sword somehow manages to look even more stupid. Probably even more so than Keyblades! From hilt to point, i consists of: A spike, the handle, a double-sided battleaxe head, a double-edged, saw-like serated blade, and a crescent-shaped sickle (at least facing the right direction). And to top it all off, the model looks like there is not a single sharp edge on the thing! And to add irony into the mix: The Trey Kings enemy faction does not actually use, but only drop them. Even the mobs refuse to weild weapons like those!

    This list really should have included Ultima 7's "Hoe of Destruction". Sure, a boomerang may not be the "most" practical weapon - but at least it was used for hunting. A hoe is used for gardening - to get more ludicrous in the same line of thought you'd need something like the "Spade of Wrath"...

    In the case of barret, his arm was amputated, that's why he has a gun arm attached to it. I have no idea how he controls it however. But I also have no idea how Stephen Hawking interacts with his machine to tell it what to say. I'm sure there's a way.

    And the rest of the world is sure you're wrong.
  • james-william-turner - June 26, 2014 12:07 a.m.

    connected to his nervous system maybe, but where does his ammo come from? thats another question

    The Baton Is a weapon A: Because Frederic was a composer and B: Because It was a DREAM.

    This article's job is to discuss why something wouldn't work as a weapon. In the context of every story ever written featuring a weapon, it works. That's not the article's point, so yours is moot.

    Chain swords are pretty damn impractical, seen in Atelier Iris Eternal Mana and Soul Calibur. You'd just cut yourself up no matter what. A laser whip seen in StarOcean 3 used by a bad guy would work as well as a chain sword: self death. The kendama used by Genis from Tales of Symphonia has some issues with being little more than a toy.

    If mods count, The Pillow Fight mod for Dungeon Siege 2. You get a pillow to smack enemies around with that does 9999 damage right off the bat.

    Let's see now... Ryu's, Ken's, Dan's MMA gloves. Before they can even fire the Hadouken/Gadouken, their gloves will burn giving them 1st - 4th degree burns.

    well for the gun blade. the grip is not the real issue since as a fencer we operate rapiers and epees with pistol like grips.
