Awesome Weapons

Making Poppy’s Hammer

Making Poppy’s Hammer

Man at Arms: Reforged made a life-size replica of Poppy’s larger than life hammer from League of Legends. The massive hammerhead is hollow, but its steel components more than qualify it as a heavy weapon. Poppy is one strong yordle.

FAL.

FAL.

Ahoy’s latest firearm profile is about the Fusil Automatique Léger (“Light Automatic Rifle”) aka FN FAL. Developed for the NATO in the face of the Cold War, the FAL never became as popular as its predecessors or the more high tech rifles that came shortly afterwards.

Killer “Toy” Gun

Killer “Toy” Gun

Joerg Sprave shows off a deadly air powered gun that’s capable of launching a 1/4 lb arrow at up to 250 mph, easily piercing through armor. Shockingly, its arrow-over-the-barrel design would allow it to be classified as a “toy” in Germany. Perhaps they need to rethink that.

Forging Kennosuke’s Sword

Forging Kennosuke’s Sword

Man at Arms: Reforged proudly presents one of their favorite creations so far. It’s a replica of the katana wielded by Kuromukuro‘s protagonist Kennosuke. The sword was made from Japanese steel that was provided by the studio behind the anime, PA Works.

Colin Furze’s Weaponized Gauntlet

Colin Furze’s Weaponized Gauntlet

Forging Trunks’ Sword

Forging Trunks’ Sword

Man at Arms: Reforged went super saiyan to make a spot-on replica of Tapion and Trunks’ Brave Sword from the Dragon Ball franchise. It’s a relatively simple build, but they had to do a ton of grinding to get its sharp lines just right.

Forging a Dandao Sword

Forging a Dandao Sword

Man At Arms: Reforged took a break from replicating fictional weapons to create a historical one based on the Dandao manual. The 400-year-old Chinese swordsmanship guide calls for a long sword that can go up against cavalry and spearmen.

Forging Aquaman’s Trident

Forging Aquaman’s Trident

Man at Arms: Reforged makes a life-size replica of what they think Jason Momoa’s Aquaman will wield in the upcoming Justice League movie. It may look like a prototype, but it still took a ton of work to create.

DIY Matchstick Gun

DIY Matchstick Gun

The always resourceful MrGear shows us how to transform a pencil, a matchstick, a 9-volt battery, and a few other bits and bobs into a tiny weapon, capable of firing a nasty little dart. It’s probably not deadly, but it sure could cause injury, so be careful if you try this at home.

200W Laser Bazooka

200W Laser Bazooka

“…it’s 400 times over the most dangerous rating imposed by the FDA. So without further ado let’s play with this thing.” A statement that no one should ever say, but YouTuber styropyro utters it as if he was talking about a NERF dart. This thing would be right at home in Fallout 4.

Making the Black Ranger’s Power Axe

Making the Black Ranger’s Power Axe

Man at Arms: Reforged did a ton of cutting, welding, grinding and polishing to make a steel replica of the Cosmic Cannon Power Axe from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Mastodon! That’s what you need to carry this.

DIY Rick & Morty Portal Gun

DIY Rick & Morty Portal Gun

DIY Prop Shop shows us how to make an electronic replica of Rick’s portal gun. The replica’s body is made from cheap and readily available materials or objects – styrene, shot glasses, a bubble wand, a whisk handle – but the electronics and tools do complicate things.

World’s Largest NERF Gun

World’s Largest NERF Gun

Mark Rober teamed up with Eclectical Engineering to create this awesomely unwieldy weapon which fires huge foam darts, made from pool noodles and toilet plungers. Thanks to compressed air, it can fire darts at speeds up to 40 mph. Check out the gunpowder upgrade.

Soda Bottle Airsoft Gun 2

Soda Bottle Airsoft Gun 2

YouTuber NightHawkInLight revisits his brilliantly simple DIY airsoft gun, adding a decorative PVC housing and a longer brake line barrel. If you don’t have an air compressor, you can skip the blowgun and just squeeze the bottle to fire the pellets.

Forging Voltron’s Blazing Sword

Cabot Guns painstakingly extracted the components of these handguns from a 4.5 billion year-old meteorite which landed in Gibeon, Namibia during pre-historic times. This handcrafted, one-of-a-kind set is valued at over $5 million, and we’d never want to fire them.

LEGO Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer

LEGO Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer

Forging Shredder’s Helmet & Blades

The Cheese Ball Machine Gun

The Cheese Ball Machine Gun

NightHawlnLight created this gadget that seems like a weapon out of Ratchet & Clank. Built using a leaf blower, PVC, and a plastic canister, what impresses us most about the gun is that the puffed cheese balls don’t turn to orange dust the second they leave the barrel.

5.11 Operator Axe

5.11 Operator Axe

A collaboration between 5.11 and Viking Tactics founder Kyle Lamb. The Operator Axe is made of stainless steel and has a bearded axe blade, a hammer point, a pry bar, inch and cm rulers, hex wrenches, 0.5″ and 0.25″ bit drivers and a sheet metal cutter.

Forging Alice’s Vorpal Blade

Man at Arms: Reforged made a real life version of the legendary Vorpal Blade, as it appears in the underrated game Alice: Madness Returns. It may seem like it’s just an oversized kitchen knife, but it still takes experts to get it right.
