Making Daredevil’s Billy Club

Making Daredevil’s Billy Club

Making a Working Arc Reactor

Making a Working Arc Reactor

The Hacksmith takes on Tony Stark’s lifesaving device with his latest build. This impressive arc reactor replica uses ionized plasma to achieve its electrified effect. It looks spectacular, but it’s terribly loud, and there’s no way we’d strap this thing to our chest.

Forging Darksiders’ Chaoseater

Forging Darksiders’ Chaoseater

Man at Arms: Reforged really didn’t want to make another large and unwieldy weapon, but they had to give the people what they want. Watch them build a life-size replica of War’s sword Chaoseater from Darksiders. The skulls on the panel are bad ass.

Making NieR: Automata’s Virtuous Treaty

Making NieR: Automata’s Virtuous Treaty

Man at Arms: Reforged takes on one of the large swords from the hit action game NieR: Automata. As is expected from a futuristic sword, its odd and layered handle meant a lot of CNC milling had to be done. But the guys pulled it off in the end.

Making Warframe’s Hate Scythe

Making Warframe’s Hate Scythe

Making weapons in Warframe is time-consuming. But that’s nothing compared to what Man at Arms: Reforged had to go through to make a replica of Hate, one of the scythes in the game. But they still managed to copy the weapon’s unconventional shape and details.

Forging Blade’s Sword

Forging Blade’s Sword

This replica of Blade’s sword proved to be one of Man at Arms: Reforged‘s toughest builds yet. It was their first time to make a sword blade entirely out of titanium, which isn’t as hard as steel but resists grinding like the vampire hunter resists sunlight.
