So, spurred on by a comment by Pat, I've decided to restart the old BFG3000 thread, where we post weapons we'd like to see statted, Spycraft style Smiley.

Although we got quite a list going last time, I doubt anybody saved the thread, so we'll just have to start from the beginning again, but that's okay, since many of these weapons are pure awesome Smiley.

A couple of things to keep in mind before you start posting your favourite weapons: Explain clearly what kind of weapon it is, how it works, what it does, and where you've gotten it from. This is essential information the Crafty guys need to make stats outta the weapons. If you have images, or a link to a video showing it in action, or a link to a site with information, like Wikipedia, then that's even better.

Also, I know there are a lot of gunbunnies on these forums, so please stick to videogames, movies or books, unless it's a unique/special/fairly odd weapon rarely seen in real life.

And now, to kick off things... the Davy Crockett, a portable tactical nuclear recoilless rifle that fires W54 nuclear warheads, the smallest warheads developed by the US with a yield of 10 to 20 tons.

By portable, I mean lugged around by a three-man firing team, and fired from a tripod or a truck/APC. Still, I could totally see a Grunt lugging one around for when he wants some extra bang Grin. And yes, this was an actual weapon developed in the mid-fifties, and deployed by US troops from 61 to 71, with a total of 2,100 made.

Weapon:Liquid Nitrogen Grenade (from Ice Station by Matthew Reilly).

Does: Sprays liquid nitrogen around after detonation, has a 5 second delay (anti-tampreing, so no return to sender  Wink ).
Kills by: Causes cryogenic burns or asphyxiation in closed spaces. In the book SAS troopers died in around 30 second after receiving liquid nitrogen into their faces causing blood vessels to burst and ultimately their brains froze (messy and extremely painful way to die).

i dont think the liquid nitrogen grenade would actually work.  To freeze someone with liquid nitrogen you really have to direct a spray at them for quite a prolonged period of time.  I have worked with an NMR Machine that requires liquid nitrogen for cooling, and you can just pour it straight on the floor, ands its lucky to be seconds before its evaporated and at room temperature.... as for asphyxiation, not really sure on that either, being that we breathe like 60% Nitrogen or something like that in any case... CO and CO2 would be another matter indeed, but i would doubt nitrogen would actually work.

You're probably right, I have no experience in working with liquid nitrogen.
But still, it's a nasty concept.

Can't remember if these came up last time but:
SickSticks from Minority Report - hit you and it makes you throw up - hard to resist arrest when you're vomiting
Lawgiver from Judge Dredd wikipedia
For a laugh the Spud Gun from Judge Dredd (weapon of Irish Terrorists who can't afford ammo, fires potatoes, as either Roastie, Chips or Smash...

In a moment of blind zaniness, Alex just posted this link to the Design List. Now, I'm not down with the Fifth Element as anything short of titanically limp ("The fifth element is looooooooove!"), but the article reminds me of yet another insane gun for the pile...

The ZF-1: "It's light. Handle's adjustable for easy carrying, good for righties and lefties. Breaks down into four parts, undetectable by x-ray, ideal for quick, discreet interventions. A word on firepower. Titanium recharger, three thousand round clip with bursts of three to three hundred, and with the Replay button - another Zorg invention - it's even easier. One shot, and Replay sends every following shot to the same location. And to finish the job, all the Zorg oldies-but-goldies: rocket launcher, arrow launcher with poisonous gas heads (very practical), Zorg’s famous net launcher, the always efficient flamethrower (Zorg’s favorite), and for the grand finale, the all-new ice cube system."

The big revolvers from Hellsing (and the somewhat huge sniper rifle from the same).
An upgrade for "holy bullets/shells/etc" from many many things.

Sniper rifle? You mean the one Seras Victoria uses? Wasn't that actually an anti-tank gun or somesuch? I gotta dig up my dvd's and check, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't just a big sniper rifle.

Definitely an anti-tank gun.  With a really bad quasi-pun of a name.  Original name is roughly the HAL cannon, which parsed through the Japanese lack of L/R distinction morphs into Harkonnen.

Then again, considering the one of the aforementioned pistols(the Jackal(the other is the Casull)) is represented in the authors notes section of the comic by an oddly drawn Bruce Willis 'spirit,' it's pretty much par for the course.  Grin

Yeah, that sort of thing, it's been a while since I saw it and it's not the sort of thing I feel comfortable looking up at work.

One of the more entertaining weapons being introduced in Farthest Star is the "cannister Rifle". Their ammo is a highly programable slug that does all sorts of stuff on demand. Its close to being a 'plot device with range increments'...  Grin

Highly programable, plot device with range increments...

Hmmmm.  Reminds me of an old favorite from X-Com.  The Blaster Launcher.

Launch a programmable rocket that can follows a preprogrammed route, and can manage anything from perfect 90 degree corners to even full 180's.  Toss in a fairly high damage, and blast increment...  A weapon that would be fightening in player or game control hands.

When I was in survival mode in X-Com, I used to just blast each ship with those and then go see what I could scrounge afterwards.  Not so good when you need the alien tech though - doesn't leave much salvage.
