Gaming’s 5 Most Iconic Deadly Weapons

The creative minds in the gaming industry have presented players with some of the most memorable weapons one could imagine. These weapons usually look as good as they are though. Video games can take something so normal but add twists to make that average weapon seem that much more lethal. As most characters in our favorite games, fists can be considered a weapon, but in this list we are going to have to put the characters actual powers aside because we are focused on the weapons that not only slay an enemy in a perfect way but the weapons that make slaying your opponent all the more interesting because of how cool the weapon you are using is. (Assassin's Creed, God of War Collection, PC, Pokemon, PS3, Tag Invalid, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Xbox 360)

I would die for a replica. I am going to try and make one the best that I can haha it will end up looking like a 3 year olds projects but who cares x)

kind of think Clouds sword from Final Fantasy should be there, but then again i don't know about it being that deadly. good pics though!

Good call. I was thinking maybe the golden gun from Goldeneye on the N64. I remember being like 5 trying my best to snag that thing before my dad or sister got to it... needless to say my dad and my sister always got to it first X)

Erm, how is everyone forgetting about Goldeneye golden gun? Thought that was pretty iconic...

Shrink Ray from Duke Nukem 3D for sure!

other iconic weapons
Call of Duty MW4 Noobtube (Grenade Launcher)

i say that's very iconic as it made the worst gamers ever all of a sudden total pro's.

Halo Needler

I'm no Halo fan but I love the Needler as it's one of the best Alien weapons ever made

but yeh Gordon Freeman's Crowbar and Gravity Gun takes the Cake (even if the cake is a Lie)

I would say the Auger from Resistance. I mean, it's a laser gun that shoots through walls and the bullet gets stronger through each barrier it passes.

Or the homing missiles from Contra.

And the Hammer from Smash Bros.
