The Ripper appears in Epic Games' Unreal and Unreal Tournament. In both games the primary fire releases a relatively slow moving spinning blade which is capable of bouncing off surfaces and inflicting headshots. In the original unreal the player could, to a limited extent, guide the blade by holding down the secondary fire button and moving the mouse. In Unreal tournament the secondary fire changed to an explosive disk. Though the explosion is not very powerful, it does succeed in knocking the victim around the map a bit. The ripper is widely hailed as one of the worst weapons in any fast paced multiplayer shooter.
