Awesome Weapons

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.

Plasan Yagu Compact Tank

Plasan Yagu Compact Tank

While it’s certainly not as capable as Howe & Howe’s personal tank, this highly-modded Arctic Cat Wildcat 4 1000 ATV from Israeli outfit Plasan is actually a military-grade machine. It features a roof-mounted weapon system, B6+ composite armor, and room for 3 occupants.

Making NieR: Automata’s Virtuous Treaty

Making NieR: Automata’s Virtuous Treaty

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.
