Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle

Adam Savage’s Custom NERF Rifle

Adam Savage joined Imgur’s 2016 Secret Santa and made a custom NERF sniper rifle as his gift. He went for a weathered sci-fi look and beefed up its firing mechanism. He kinda borked the magazine with paint, but overall he did a great job. Finished build at 29:08.

Bow & Arrow.

Bow & Arrow.

YouTuber Ahoy’s latest lecture is about one of man’s first and favorite weapons. The bow and arrow have persisted across changing needs, ages and cultures. As such, in video games it’s found not just in shooters but also in RPGs, RTS games and more.

Making the Sword of Altair

Making the Sword of Altair

Making Excalibur

Making Excalibur

Man at Arms: Reforged takes on what is perhaps the most famous sword of all time – King Arthur’s legendary Excalibur, as based on its appearance in the video game King of Avalon. It’s one of their most impressive builds, and the engraving alone is phenomenal.

Making a Trench Club

Making a Trench Club

Man at Arms: Reforged continues their Battlefield 1 promotion by creating a trench raiding club. There’s nothing elegant or artful about this deadly World War I relic – soldiers used wood and metal from the field to create a “quiet” weapon.

T.C.T.E.P.F.C.G.G.

Making the Sword of Gryffindor

Making the Sword of Gryffindor

Man at Arms: Reforged didn’t have a Sorting Hat, so they had to make a replica of Godric Gryffindor’s sword the hard way. But it’s worth it just for that marvelous silver handle. It’s amazing how much finesse is involved in making lethal implements.

Creative Medieval Weapons

Creative Medieval Weapons

(PG-13: Language) The Sam O’Nella Academy presents a brief look at some of the highly creative and nasty ways you could be killed back in medieval times. Though we do think an actual giant ape tossing boulders would have been more intimidating than the Warwolf.

Making a Jambiya with Danny Trejo

Making a Jambiya with Danny Trejo

Thompson.

Thompson.

Trench Broom. Chicago Typewriter. Tommy Gun. The Thompson submachine gun was intended to be used in World War I, but peace time turned it into a gangster’s weapon. That is, until the second War. Ahoy sums up the fascinating tale of a weapon that’s part sinner, part saint.
