Default The Coolest gun you've ever used?

Title says it all; whats the coolest gun you've ever used in a videogame? It doesn't necessarily have to be the most powerful (Redeemer *drool*) Just the funniest or most impressive!

The souped up Gravity gun from Half life 2 was helluva funny to use and the Railway rifle from Fallout three always makes me smile (Choo Choo death).

Though my personal favorite has to be the injector gun from Time splitters, hilarious.

That would be a Tank.. I was 12, and my dad got me to a military base here in my country, where they have tank simulators. I sat in one, and got to play with it against a team of soldiers of the base. And I beat the crap out of them in the simulator. :D

I liked the gun in Unreal Tournament that shot circular saw blades.

That was the only one I was ever any good at...I could bounce that fucker around the corner, up the stairs, and still take your head clean off. <fwing!><ping!><ping!><splorch!>"HEADSHOT!"

The autogun in Fire Warrior - slowed the enemy down until you got enough bullets in to put them down for good...either that, or the Sticky Grenades in Halo - that's what Eldar Plasma Grenades would be like in a 40k film!

The Cerebral Bore in Turok 2 and the Cerebral Processor in Turok 3. The former shot a projectile that would burrow into an enemy's spinal cord and remove all of the vital fluid in a suitably nasty display, and the latter would do the same, except it allowed you to control the enemy for 30 seconds before the enemy would explode. I'd like to see anything in 40k top that level of nastyness.

I always love semi-automatic rifles... just love the accuracy combined with the fact you can recognise every shot being fired and know that its thudding into the enemy (yes im the one walking round UT with the sniper rifle even for close range).

Favourite single guns are Duke Nukem's shrink gun, Doom2's hyber blaster and Red Faction's Railgun (love shooting through walls).

The RPD or AK47 Grenadier from Call of Duty 4, for sheer DAKKA, or perhaps the FG42 from World At War, because for some reason every single bullet causes limbs to fly. Of course there's the Lancer from Gears, for chainsaw-y goodness, and the Grinder from the same game. I like the Golf Club that came with the Halo Mythic Map Pack, and I've always loved the StA-52 from Killzone, gotta love the underslung shotgun

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

Hmm. Quite possibly the ASMD Shock Rifle.

Alternatively, the gun that fires shurikens and lightning from Painkiller.

To quote Yahtzee "It could only be any cooler if it had tits and was on fire!"

My favourite this year alone has been the pipper gun from dead spcae. What's better than a circular saw spinning around 8 feet infront of you while you chop up bodies all aroudn the place with it? plus the sound that came from it was just arousing....

Overall though I have always loved the cluck-o-matic from Ratchet and Clank. changing gigantic cannon wielding robots into chickens. Perfect!

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!
