You can judge a first person shooter almost entirely on the strengths of its shotguns. A good video game shotgun is a bold and challenging weapon; a bad shotgun is a feather duster at a distance of more than a few feet. A good shotgun makes you feel like a champion, capable of taking on the world. A bad shotgun makes…
Is there any video game gun more awe-inspiring than a flamethrower? Most shoot bullets, but the flamethrower? It blasts enemies with giant gouts of flame, searing them like a juicy steak. A good flamethrower will give you some of the best moments in video games, whether it’s a close save from an otherwise unassailable…
When you got one of the biggest guns in the world, you can’t just pop in a new magazine and start firing again. Well, you can but the new ‘magazine’ for the GAU-8 Avenger is so ginormous it needs to be trucked in and requires multiple Air Force guys to get the gun reloaded. It takes time to get giant bullets on board!…
If you’re a horde of undead looking to devour the living, maybe don’t do it in a 1920s city run by the Mafia.
This is ridiculous. Nobody needs this much Nerf gun. But the nice thing about Nerf’s new Modulus blaster is you get to pick just how much you want.
Yes, that’s right—this is a working Halo Needler. It shoots amazing darts that magically stick to targets, just like in the game. (No, they don’t explode.) It’s part of an entire line of new Halo dart guns produced by BOOMco. And I just tried them all.
Many games feature guns. It’s a shame so many of them can’t feature them properly.
This Fallout sniper is not for headshots. It’s for shooting marshmallows at people. For science!
Let's say you find yourself hungry with loads of uncooked bacon and an...assault rifle. Add lots and lots of bullets, and you have yourself a tasty bacon meal.
Finally! Somebody tried to figure out how many layers of Saran Wrap will stop an airsoft gun.
If developers put something inside of a game, players will find it. Even if it requires pulling the game apart, or in this case, going out of the bounds of a level.

As a kid, I strapped a Nerf gun to my bicycle so I could dive bomb the neighborhood kids, while traveling—I imagined—at five times the speed of sound. As an adult, I’ve carried a foam-firing blaster to no fewer than three jobs. But a funny thing happened last year: I realized my old guns weren’t any good anymore.
Fried shrimp or "ebi furai" (エビフライ) is a popular dish in Japan. Here's one way to make it quickly—in three seconds, to be exact. That doesn't include the prep time, though!
Sunset Overdrive, the Xbox One's whacky new open-world shooter, got its first batch of downloadable content this week. The most important part of the DLC is a weapon pack that adds four new guns to the game. They're all really good—so good that I wish they'd been in the original game.
You round a corner. You think you're in the clear but—oh no!—an enemy is standing guard. How will you ever bring him down without alerting other guards? Aha, your pistol has a silencer. One mouse squeak gun shot later and you're free. Except that's not how silencers work at all.
300 hours and $200 was enough for popular modder Ikkalebob to build the real-life version of the Dahl assault rifle from Borderlands. It even has a working sight and with the tweaks he made it just looks really powerful.
If you have even a passing relationship with video games, you've probably picked up a gun controller. It's a gimmick, sure, but it's a great one. And thanks to the Oculus Rift and Trinity VR's Magnum, it's about to get even cooler.
The Asiimov skin for the AWP sniper rifle in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive can be a pricey one, $30 or a lot more if you're not lucky. So buying one might not be the best idea. But modifying a generic paintball marker to match the one in CS:GO? That's much better.
