OMG I LOVE THE DEADSPACE FINGER GUN, TOTALLY WORTH PLAYING THAT GAME ON THAT AWFUL DIFFICULTY!

Once again, Mr Toots is overlooked on a ridiculous/overpowered weapons list.

BANG BANG PEW PEW PEW :)

I never understood how people found Zealot difficulty hard, from the previous playthrough you knew what to expect and it made it easy. (I managed it in 1 sitting with no saves)

Stroking that epeen.

Immature much?

Just pointing out that there are far harder tasks in games to do, and that Zealot on DS2 isn't as hard as people make out.

It's the same with Dark/Demon Souls, everyone keeps mentioning how hard they are, but I found neither to be hard, I just took my time as I knew rushing in would get me killed.

Do you know what I had to do for that Finger Gun in Dead Space 2?

GTFO!

Genocide gun from EDF 2017, or some XP units from Supreme commander, oh, or that mothership from C&C Kane's Wrath.

Most of this list sucks. Why is the foam finger from DS2 only a Bonus mention when it's 1 of the most busted weapons I've ever used?

What of the P.L.R. 412? A quick shot stuns everything around you and a charge shot which only takes a second kills everything in sight! Crates, enemies, snakes, enemies behind you, all of them all at once!
azshorty2003  +   679d ago
It's a bonus mention because the gun itself is just that. It's a reward you unlock after playing the game on an insane difficulty with insane requirements (limited to save only 3 times the whole game).

It's not a weapon you'd have access to any other way.

I'm showing my age here, but the golden gun from goldeneye 64 was ridiculously overpowered, same as the pistol and plasma pistol from the first halo.

And pretty much every weapon in turok 64 was ridiculous AND overpowered, but then again you were facing dinosaurs with rocket launchers attached to them (not as awesome as it sounds.)
MRMagoo123  +   679d ago
showing your age by mentioning a Nintendo 64 game?? I doubt that, it was released in 1997 that's only 15 years ago even the 64 itself was released in 96 lol

Seriously? No pre-patch USAS from BF3?
SimplyJonnyBD  +   679d ago
I think you guys are missing the point that the weapons are both overpowered AND happen to be absolutely ridiculous, not that they are "ridiculously overpowered". I was going for something that would make people laugh at how odd the weapon choices were.
Lord_Sloth  +   679d ago
Well you skipped the Grooveatron and the Foam Finger should have been on the actual list.
SimplyJonnyBD  +   679d ago
There are way more than 10 of these types of weapons in games. Note that this also isn't a definitive Top 10 list. It's just 10 that I put together. There's nothing that says there won't be another list some day ;)

BLR-06 Hadra MRL from the first Killzone. Press Alternate fire and be the Hand of God at least until you start reloading......
Superted2007  +   679d ago
Where is the R.Y.N.O from the Ratchet & Clank games?
t0mmyb0y  +   679d ago
I'm surprised nobody mentioned the BFG.
jerethdagryphon  +   679d ago
or the crystal ring shield, from dark souls pre patch of course
