Top 10: Over The Top Weaponry

One of the most appealing parts of any video game is the weaponry because, let’s face it, most good games contain a fair amount of death dealing and we have absolutely no problem with that at all. We’ve all spent our fair share of time hacking, slashing, and blasting our way through hordes of enemies with a wide variety of like-minded weaponry, but sometimes we happen to find a weapon that really stands out from the crowd. The weapon that raises you to a God-like status as you effortlessly mow down anything and everything in your path. These weapons are the most rewarding and satisfying tools you will ever come by…and it feels damn good to know it.

@ Reliantk77 & Dante112

Yeah, Mr. Toots is probably the best weapon eve in a game IMO. A unicorn that shoots rainbows of destruction out of its ass really can't be topped. Only downside is you have to beat the game before you get Mr. Toots, and the game isn't that great. It's not so bad that Mr. Toots doesn't make up for it though. It's worth a $15 go at it just for Mr. Toots. :D

Land Shark Gun from Armed and Dangerous is amazing.

Never tried it but the Blitzkrieg from Dead Rising 2 looks hilariously fun, and I would love to try it.

the topsy turvy gun from armed and dangerous was crazy too

I like that SR3 has its own version of the Land Shark Gun.
Relientk77  +   906d ago
Yea I used it at my friends house, that was so much fun, I just like spammed that gun lol
acemonkey  +   907d ago

The Tripple Barreled Hydra was a nod to Vincent Valentine's Tripple Barreled gun called the Cerberus.

Grooveatron should have been up there somewhere.

While less of a weapon and more of an ability, I would list Cole's tornado power from Infamous 2. By the end of the game I was clearing whole city blocks with the press of a button.

Off the top of my head i can think the gravity disrupter & dark matter cube from turok evolution. And the drill arm from bioshock 2 :)

I would definitely add the StA-X3 W.A.S.P. Launcher from Killzone 3. Now that is one over the top weapon.
