A kind of protective clothing.
When someone has lost an arm (in combat or by accident) and has a hi-tech replacement arm.
Cars go places. Hopefully fast.
Fluffy looking puffs seen in the atmosphere that are accumilations of moisture. They are used to add detail to Sky boxes in games or just increase realism.
Crates sometimes contain things!
A style of hair often associated with Jamaica and/or the Rasta religion, although it is worn by many people from around the world. The titular antagonist from the "Predator" series also is known for its dreadlock-like hair.
A dropship usually refers to a ship that ferries troops, heavy armor, and supplies from carriers in orbit to a planet's surface. Sometimes it refers to any futuristic in-atmosphere transport that is not a helicopter or airplane.
A popular weapon that is used in many shooters. The flamethrower is considered one of the most unique ways to defeat a foe.
A grapple is a device, usually thrown or shot, that allows a game character to 'hook' onto objects within the game, with the purpose of climbing or scaling.
A grenade is an explosive device traditionally thrown by hand, but may also be propelled by a rifle or launcher.
A gun that uses various types of grenades as ammunition.
Considered one of the most frequent and controversial implements of destruction in video games and real life, guns are devices that fire projectiles with explosive force.
Common in game's like Tony Hawks Pro Skater but these are also seen in many other types of games
A homing missile is a missile that locks on to and follows its target. Homing missiles are featured in lots of games, from old school to new school.
Frozen water that can be a hazard to the player or used as a weapon.
A Jet pack is a backpack with rocket boosters built in that usually allows the wearer to hover or fly.
A laser is a focused beam of light, invisible through the air without some other medium (such as smoke) to illuminate it. Lasers are often used in video games as part of a targeting system, or as an offensive weapon in their own right.
Machine guns, generally, are heavier weapons with a rapid rate of fire. To quote the Quake manual, they "eat ammo like popcorn."
Pistol gripped and mechanized like a pistol but with an automatic fire bolt
Mechs (or Mecha) are humanoid-like pilot driven vehicles often depicted in media as a combat machine. Early examples of Mech/Mecha in video games are often derived from early manga and anime as well as table-top games.
A nuclear bomb is a device made up of fissionable materials (ie Uranium) and standard explosives. It creates a nuclear chain reaction, which release large amounts of radiation and a shockwave.
A pistol is a very basic hand-held side arm, usually used in case of low ammo or tricky situations. They have appeared in many types of games.
A weapon that launches rockets.
The most powerful weapon at short range. Effective against Zombies, Nazis, Demons, etc. Videogame shotguns tend to have exaggerated inaccuracy at long range- real life shotguns are still fairly accurate over a decent distance, while videogame shotguns rarely go more than fifteen feet before becoming completely ineffective.
The weapon of choice for accuracy at long distances. The sniper rifle's slow rate of fire makes it ineffective for close range combat, but its high calibre round ensures that it inflicts maximum damage against the target.
A large pole with a light at the top of it that illuminates streets and paths
A gun turret is weapon mount designed to protect the user or mechanisms of a weapon system. The weapon itself is not a turret, but rather the protective housing of the user or mechanisms of the weapon system.
Used to drive around in.
