This is my boomstick.

List of all of my favorite tools of destruction from various video games.

List items

  • All he has to do is jump on their heads, this guy may not be inanimate, but he's one hell of a tool of destruction!

  • Frostmourne is one of my favorite blades visually, I'm a sucker for swords with curves.

  • Ok, this is probably my favorite on the list. You can do damn near anything with this. Who wouldn't want to throw toilets at gas-masked heads??

  • Of all the advanced weapons I've come across in my life, this is probably the most sinister of all. Not only does it shoot large, razor sharp crystal right into you, but after your stuck like a pig, they detonate! To be honest, I'd rather just go out in pink mist then take a couple of needles and have a few holes.

  • Pretty much the best way to test out a game's arsenal is to take a look at the magnum. Some games, like Half Life 2, give you a weapon of supreme power and satisfaction. Others, like Killzone 2, give you what feels and sounds to be a pea shooter.

  • This one is pretty much self explanatory. See spot. See spot run. See spot BOOOOOM.

  • It's just funky looking. Nuff Said.

  • It's like an Uzi made sweet, fiery love to a shotgun! Can also shoot GRENADES. AT 120 RPM. Holy. Shit.

  • Ghosts are nasty. This fixes that. Plus, if you cross the streams, it becomes even more bad ass! Albeit a bit more deadly to all of life as we know it...

  • Generally speaking, this is a device of devastating and awesome power. In Just Cause 2 it NEVER RUNS OUT OF BULLETS. I'd say that makes it top five material.

  • There is something kinda sexy about having a blade up your sleeve. Having to lose a finger for it just makes it that more impressive when it's wielded.

  • It's a pretty big sword, and it's got a floating skull thingy in it. It's in!

  • There is something about this particular "Chain"saw that is a little scarier then a normal chainsaw.

  • Zombies be warned! Even if the implementation of cart tech in Dead Rising wasn't the best, it was still fuckin' fantastic to mow down a million zombies with it.

  • The hell with guns, I just wanna drive like a crab and run stuff over!

  • Is it just me, or are the best weapons usually pretend industrial tools? Either way, no one can resist choppin' off limbs with this bad boy.

  • It's a big ass sword. Wielded by a large, violent Scot. It has an ironic name. While your enemies are lulzing at your Eyelander, you'll be collecting their heads!

  • Hey, it costs 400 MS Points, it must be good. Right...?

  • Of all the weapons on the list, this is probably the one that disturbs me the most. Despite that, I think it's an important thing to have on here cause hey, who doesn't like popcorn?

  • Need I say more?

  • FUCKING PINATA MAN.

  • It's like a fancy looking lightsaber!

  • This is a reference to a Team Fortress 2 mod. Enjoy!

  • 's

  • shall be the end of the universe!

  • You can punt em pretty hard, and they are Largely Threatening.

  • I'm sure this goes outside the realm of weapons, but he is a robot. Dog. Thing. And he effs up some big critters so he certainly earns this spot.

  • I loved the first Condemned game. It scared the shit out of me to play that game in a dark, lonely basement filled with old shit. This was generally my weapon of choice, when I had the ability to coherently process information so as to choose a particular weapon.

  • FUCK HELICHOPTERS.

  • GHOULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.

    Hey, you can throw cards like a ninja.

  • To hell with your jar of dirt, I have a jar of piss!

  • TRAP!!!!

  • If you've ever played Shadow Warrior, you know some of the shit in that game is bat shit insane. This is one of those things.

  • This, plus physics=fun.

  • It can break through steel, concrete, I-beams, and skulls!

  • Why? Because, they fucking hurt.

  • Gandalf has one, and you don't. Sucks to be you!

  • heh.

  • Heavy, brutal, with massive amounts of momentum and crushing potential. Awesome.

  • It's not too often you see spears in games, but I greatly admire the skill needed to throw one, so I'll add it in!

  • I particularly enjoy them when they don't require a lock on... or even any amount of aiming. Random targets all day long!

  • Sure it's not very often that they are often used as weapons, but when they are, it's a pretty neat concept.

  • Another crazy ass weapon from Shadow Warrior, it's a fire breathing, mutilated head!

  • It's like a rail gun, only more crazy and sci-fi!

  • This was probably my favorite part of Crysis: Shooting down massive alien squids in two bloody shots.

  • There's nothing quite like a stray round smashing through one of these bad boys with 3 guys around it and a guy trying to throw it at you.

  • IT'S A FUCKING ARROW THAT PUTS OUT FIRES AND FIRE ELEMENTALS. WITH WATER!

  • The only lasers that aren't dumb: Star Wars lasers.

  • I dunno if you've seen any Dead Rising 2 footage but DAMN.

  • It's a glove with power, lots and lots of power.

  • Railguns are pretty scary as it is, but make em big and call em MAG guns, and that's pretty effing awesome.

  • I've gotta say, throwing a maxed out Singularity in Mass Effect 1, it's fucking epic. Add Barrier and throw and your good to go.

  • JESUS.FUCKING. CHRIST.

  • Ever played Angry Barry? /Yeah/.

  • Despite a nonsensical name, this gnarly ass hammer is pretty awesome. Soccer balls not included.

  • So, fire is scary. Take that fire, put it in a bottle ready to burst in your hand, then make it not go out when you use water. Damn.

  • There's a reason a soccer combat game would have to be made with UE3. Meat cube, meet your maker. /Literally/.

  • Probably ties with the Magnum for second favorite weapon in Half Life 2

  • Boom next to cone. Cone next to head. Cone in head. Dead head.

  • Not only are they sexy, but add guns and SHIT GETS FUCKED!

  • Pistols are pretty awesome. Knives are pretty awesome. So when you take guns, usually older styled pistols, and combine them with large knifes, you get a pretty awesome combination.

  • In the hands of a powerful mage, a simple corpse can become a brutally lethaland thoroughly disturbing weapon of considerable destruction.

  • I know X Wings are the fan favorites of the Star Wars universe, but I really love Y Wings, for whatever reason.

  • GET BENT!

  • Scoring with hot studs!

  • Ah ha, is this our chance?

  • How does lightning make a fucking shockwave? I dunno, but it's almost as awesome as being a trendy messenger in a crazy messed up city!

  • "WAIT JUST A MINUTE. WHAT THE HELL???" you say? Well I have an argument, so just give me a moment. Infinite Rockets infinite Minigun Rounds taking it their own turf high 'ground'=best anti-helicopter weapon. Also, I'm pretty sure the definition of Chaos is "HOLY FUCK THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS BLOWING UP HOW DOES HE HAVE SO MANY GODDAMN MISSILES???"

  • While lobbing a big ass blob of plasma is pretty goddamn awesome, Getting into the Anti-Aircraft Wraith in Halo 3 and streaming out a shit load of whatever the hell fuel rod cannons shoot was one of the biggest "Holy shit!" moments in my gaming career.

  • I know, your telling me there's no way this is a weapon. Tell that to the dude who got shot up into a friendly nade tossed over a wall, or right into a boosting banshee. Yeah.

  • I loved Bioshock's environments and atmosphere, but my favorite part of the game was the presentation of the plasmids.

  • This thing looks gnarly, and I can only imagine the damage this thing would do in the right hands.

  • Come on. Swords on CHAINS. ON FIRE!!

  • This juxtaposition of chainsaws and machine guns displayed with this weapon is what makes it so goddamn awesome.

  • One of my favorite parts of Gears of War 3: The Mortar. Especially with its active reload.

  • IT'S A SHOTGUN THAT SHOOTS BIG FIERY BALLS. YES.

  • Big explosions are always a big thing with me. This represents one of the biggest and baddest.

  • The combo nature of this gun and the insane shots people can pull off with these when they have amazing amounts of skill make this one of my favorite weapons ever.

  • We're talking Quake here folks, a big ol, wrist mounted, gnarly as all hell, CIRCULAR SAW BLADE WEAPON.

  • I'm talking about the Quake II grenade launcher in particular. I dunno why, but I really love the way the grenades go about 10 feet, and clunk around really heavily, but bounce like a rubber ball. Pretty great.

  • Persssssssonnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa......... *twitch*

  • It's a saw with a giant needle in it for Christ's sake. Did I mention as crazy European "doctor" runs around with this thing??

  • Smashing this thing through Zombies isn't just mad fun: It's also how Metallica produces all of their new tracks!

  • It's a laptop, that turns into a goddamn gun.

  • You either know or you don't.

  • There is something incredibly sexy about silenced pistols.

  • It's too damn important to leave off this list.

  • This is obviously the best fucking weapon EVER.

  • Duke Nukem made these things awesome!

  • Big Fucking Gun? 9000?? YES!!!

  • These are some pretty bad ass fuckin blades.

  • Anything that explodes after EMBEDDING INTO YOUR OPPONENT (adhesive sticky bombs not eligible) are not only brutal, but incredibly satisfying!

  • ^///^

  • Take an open world sandbox game. Add Remote Mines. Receive BACON.

  • WHO THE FUCK CAME UP WITH THIS?????? I WANT TO KISS THEM!
