Weapons-Grade Gears Gear

Forget that plastic replica, this lunatic has built his own real-life Lancer.

What freaks me out is how field-ready this thing looks.

Here's a sterling example of the hoary old adage about life imitating abject awesomeness. Aside from alpha-male behavior laced with homoerotic overtones, nothing sums up Gears of War's blunt-force attitude like the Lancer. Seriously, is there anything ass-kickier than a wicked machine gun with a friggin' chainsaw strapped on the front? As you can tell from this video that CrunchGear dug up, it's even better in real life. We're not talking about some kind of fancy Nerf gun you'd keep in the bottom drawer of your desk, but an actual AR-15 with a functioning chainsaw blade bolted on the front, undoubtedly by a man whose deep commitment to being an unmitigated bad-ass makes my life look like a 24/7 stuffed-animal tea party. Pass me a razzleberry cupcake, Mr. Bearingsworth!

Check out the video for yourself to see some pumpkins get treated like the skulls of some feeble Locust grunts, and don't try to deny the fact that you too would cackle like a madman if you saw this in person.

What kind of manly man puts the safety on? Real many men eat safe for breakfast and crap out danger for brunch.

Well at least if the commies ever invade, our backwoods militias are armed to the teeth.

I love how his advancing-while-firing stance is super serious, but it all goes to hell when he tries to start up his silly chainsaw.

Okay... So someone took a CHAINSAW and attched it to a ASSAULT RIFLE. I only remember someone taking a Toys R Us 'Happy fun times chainsaw!' and a Nerf 'Foam shooting bullets!' gun. And That was pretty awesome. Drawback to this gun? (Aside from the fact that if you slip while you're holding it and manage to fall on it in such a way as to re-enact that clown's death in Dead Rising ) Where does the petrol go?

It isn't a chainsaw unless it's a Stihl.

He looks so playful when he goes to chainsaw those pumpkins. There's also a vid where he tries to cut down a tree which makes the chainsaw seem even more silly.

Dude, I'm surprised the government hasn't erased all data of this ever existing: they need some secret weapons.

This is silly not just in form, but function. The chainsaw latched to the front would throw off the balance of the gun, especially lacking anything significant to grab on to, totally fucking your aim (As if it's not hard enough to get a good shot out of a rifle unless you're trained.). Secondly, the chainsaw is useless holding the gun as a gun, because there's no pressure downwards, you'd have to completely switch your hand positioning for it to do anything more than nick someone or slice off a finger at most.

The game Lancer is at least somewhat more plausible, thanks to it's more central positioning of the chainsaw and the 'in chansaw' grip.

Take that, pumpkins!

Personally, I'm not sure I'd want to be trying to start up my chainsaw when I wind up in melee, or leave it running so people know where I am.  That, and if I hit the dirt, break the chain, and it flies up into my face, gouging out my eye, I imagine that might sap my will to fight.

The halo kid bugged me more, though. This just seems like a fun stunt.

Personally, I'm all for tea parties!

Haha yeah it was all good till he starts up the saw.

I'm still actually scared of chainsaws, more so when they are pointed at me, so, i dont want to be at the other end of one of those, but i wouldnt feel bad if i was in front if him though...

I woulda liked for him to attempt to start it up and have it jam
Which would be proceeded by a hearty "AWWW C'MON!!!"

Well that makes the French 1700 ol' Musket with The Pike at the end look like a Red Rider BB gun with a plastic knife ductaped to the end.

We actually have a member here on GB who did that also with a gun he owns, I dont recall his name but he did mention that when he uploaded some pics of it to a gun forum he was told that it was illigal to do with the type of gun he owned and that he better not post those pics around.

I think that was the point his child side kicked in. He looked giddy lol. PLus he looked pretty ungraceful just to begin with. I think he just wanted to chainsaw some damn pumpkins into oblivion.

That is a little bit Awesome.

I do wonder how long before some country actually makes a real lancer. Look at what happened with the Halo armour.

Only problem is that a real lancer would be unwieldy and awkward, I would guess.  Not the best for actual warfare against....not pumpkins.
