Awesome Weapons

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.

DIY Airsoft Machine Gun

DIY Airsoft Machine Gun

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.

Learning to Throw an Axe

Learning to Throw an Axe

Serial learner Mike Boyd recently gave himself his easiest and quickest task yet: throw an axe and make it stick to a wooden target three times in a row. If anything, this video is proof of how much he’s learned about teaching and video editing.

Making a Sword with Thermite

Making a Sword with Thermite

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.

See-through Gun Suppressors

See-through Gun Suppressors

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.

Making Euron Greyjoy’s Axe

Making Euron Greyjoy’s Axe

“I am the storm, brother.” Euron Greyjoy’s axe in Game of Thrones appeared only briefly and in a dimly lit scene. But Man at Arms: Reforged and its fans were so taken by its badass design that they went ahead and replicated it anyway.

DIY Semi-Automatic Paper Gun

DIY Semi-Automatic Paper Gun

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.

Making Thor’s Ragnarok Swords

Making Thor’s Ragnarok Swords

In the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, the villain Hela destroys the god of thunder’s hammer, Mjölnir. Good thing Thor gets his hands on a pair of these thick alien swords. Man at Arms: Reforged replicated the blades via a CNC machine and good old forging.

Making Attack on Titan’s Sword

Making Attack on Titan’s Sword

Man at Arms: Reforged made a life-size replica of the 3D Maneuver Gear Sword from Attack on Titan. They didn’t make the vertical maneuvering equipment, but the sword’s box cutter-like blades can be replaced, just like in the series.

PlastCraft Fallout 4 Gauss Rifle

PlastCraft Fallout 4 Gauss Rifle

Etsy store PlastCraft makes video game-inspired collectibles and props. Its pièce de résistance at the moment is this badass gauss rifle replica inspired by Fallout 4‘s weaponry. It’s filled with blue LEDs and has nixie tubes that indicate the battery’s charge.

The Most Powerful Weapons in Comics

The Most Powerful Weapons in Comics

…the real answer is The Writer’s Imagination, but that’s no fun. So VariantComics ranked what they believe are the 10 most powerful weapons in comic books. Most of them will be familiar even if you’re not a comic book fan, such as the Infinity Gauntlet.

NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K

NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10K

Perhaps the ultimate NERF blaster, this fully-motorized play weapon features a large gravity-fed hopper that holds up to 100 soft rounds at nearly 100 feet per second. It comes in red and blue versions for team play.

Crazy Powerful Mini Cannon

Crazy Powerful Mini Cannon

Because he hasn’t made enough dangerous things, Giaco Whatever teamed up with builder Kevin Lizotte to create a tiny cannon that’s ridiculously powerful for its size. The audio and slow-mo add to the drama, but we wouldn’t want to be on the business end of this thing.

Silencing a Silencer

Silencing a Silencer

For no other reason than to get YouTube views, the guys at West Coast Armory continuously fired 700 rounds from a full-auto M249 saw machine gun to see how quickly they could melt the silencer they installed. The answer? Not long. Not long at all.

Molten Metal Squirtgun

Molten Metal Squirtgun

The Backyard Scientist’s latest build is one of his most dangerous yet – a gun that fires a stream of searing hot molten pewter, or just about any other liquid. Needless to say it shouldn’t be fired at anything or anyone you care about – unless it’s filled with ketchup.

NERF Modulus Tri-Strike

NERF Modulus Tri-Strike

This over-the-top NERF gun can fire three different types of projectiles, including Elite darts, oversize MEGA darts, and our personal favorite, the giant MEGA Missile ammo. Its modular design lets you use the blasters individually as well.

World’s Largest Super Soaker

World’s Largest Super Soaker

Not satisfied with having the world’s largest NERF gun, Mark Rober and his friends spent a total of 6 months making the world’s largest Super Soaker. The 7ft long gun shoots water at up to 272mph using pressurized nitrogen.

Making Roadhog’s Chain Hook

Making Roadhog’s Chain Hook

Oh goodie. Man at Arms: Reforged makes another weapon from Blizzard’s hit FPS Overwatch. Their replica of Roadhog’s signature weapon may be relatively simple, but they still painstakingly forged, shaped and sanded the hook instead of fabricating most of it.

Bowman Mini Crossbow

This 5″ long stainless steel weapon can fire skinny projectiles like toothpicks, matches, and Q-tips. Its firing range is 15 to 30 feet, and it’s perfect for taking down zombie action figures. Available in silver, gold, or black finishes.

DIY 4000 PSI BB Gun

DIY 4000 PSI BB Gun

Builder and destroyer of things Giaco Whatever shows off his custom-made Airsoft weapon, which is designed to launch ammo at a ridiculous rate of fire. Here, he amps up the pressure, and launches a barrage of metal BBs at various objects, pretty much vaporizing them.

DIY Cardboard Glock

DIY Cardboard Glock

Cardboard and rubber band weapon maker Blackfish shows off an amazing build which looks just like a Glock 19 handgun, with working slide and firing mechanism, and an ammo clip filled with bullets made from crayons. After the action, he shows off how to build your own.

Making Optimus Prime’s Sword

Making Optimus Prime’s Sword

Man At Arms: Reforged made a huge lemonade out of an even bigger lemon. Made of over 500 pieces, their scale model of Optimus Prime’s sword from Transformers: The Last Knight is their largest and most complicated build yet.

DIY 4-Barrel Rocket Launcher

DIY 4-Barrel Rocket Launcher

Ever resourceful maker The Q shows us how to build a shoulder-mounted quad launcher like the one Arnie had in Commando. Only this one is made from cardboard, PVC, and a cigarette lighter, and fires plastic soda bottles as its rockets. It still looks like it would hurt like hell.

Making X-23’s Claws

Making X-23’s Claws

In the latest episode of Man at Arms: Reforged, the folks at Baltimore Knife & Sword Co. find out just how much of a pain in the ass it is to forge and grind titanium. They used the rare metal to make replicas of Logan’s clone, X-23.

The Largest Tanks Ever Designed

The Largest Tanks Ever Designed

RealLifeLore talks about some of the most absurdly huge tanks ever conceived, including one that’s larger than a basketball court. While they sound fearsome, physics and tactics meant that these behemoths had more bark than bite.

Supersonic LEGO Darts

Supersonic LEGO Darts

Joerg Sprave first shows off how LEGO bricks can become far more nasty by turning them into mouth-blown air darts, then builds a “scientific test device” so he can then fire the projectiles at supersonic speeds with a powerful air compressor.
