Weapon maker Joerg Sprave is always up for a challenge. When the makers of the game War Robots asked him if he’d build a robot, he obliged them with the world’s deadliest vacuum cleaner – which carries and fires a Glock. Never yell at this robot for missing a spot!
Kiwamijapan loves to make DIY weapons and tools. But this one takes the cake. He took katsuobushi – dried and preserved tuna (aka bonito) – which is literally hard as a rock, and turned it into a knife. Get ready for a whole lot of soothing sharpening and filing sounds.
A fully-motorized NERF blaster capable of firing up to 40 soft foam rounds without reloading. Its magazine-based loading systems mean you can reup with spare cartridges fast. Fires at speeds up to 100 feet per second. Choose from red or blue versions for team play.
Bob Clagett of I Like to Make Stuff admittedly isn’t a weapon-making expert, but he sure knows his way around a bandsaw. In this clip, he shows us how he used some scraps of hardwood flooring to create a wooden practice katana with some very impressive results.

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.

These teensy crossbows are the perfect for cubicle combat. Each one can fire projectiles like toothpicks, Q-tips, or matchsticks. The self-loading Ace Sniper has self-loading mechanism, while the Ghost Hunter has laser targeting, and the BB Sniper also fires ball bearings.
The Q shows us how to use plastic soda bottles, tire valves, tubing, and a few other bits to build a homebrew compressed air weapon which can fire a seemingly endless stream of pellets. We’re thinking you could ramp this thing up to include as many soda bottles as you can carry.
While most of the videos on the Internet that involve thermite end up destroying stuff, The Backyard Scientist decided to use the extremely hot concoction to fire a crucible for casting a sword. The result isn’t the most attractive looking thing, but still an effective weapon.
Destin Sandlin of Smarter Every Day teamed up with the folks at Soteria Suppressors to create special gun silencers wrapped in transparent cast acrylic, then captured amazing slow-mo footage of them in action using a high-speed camera at a whopping 110,000 fps.
Blackfish shows us how to create a really cool toy weapon which fires rolled up paper projectiles. Its rubber band powered revolver mechanism lets it fire up to eight darts without reloading. We assume you could expand on the idea and make one that fires more ammo.
