Rin's Room #39: Coolest Game Weapons. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

My earlier post about The Hacksmith and his awesome TV-show-turned-real-life weapons got me thinking about other great weapons in games and show lore. After all, some weapons are just as memorable as the characters that wield them. And in some cases, the game weapons become an icon of the game–so recognizable that a single photo can evoke amazing memories. Here are some of the best weapons from video games.

#1 Portal Gun

Unlike some of the other weapons that people have tried to turn into reality, it doesn’t seem like this one will ever become a real thing. Why? Well–it shoots portals. Interdimensional portals that can transport you from one side of your house to the other. While cool, I don’t think earth physics actually works that way! Honestly, it would be pretty sweet to go, bam, and create a portal that can instantly bring you to the other side of your school or hallway or room or whatever, but think about all of the traffic more than one portal gun would cause. What if you shot a portal to Point A and then another person also tried to shoot a portal to Point A? Would you crash into each other? Would the portals absorb each other?


#2 Red Shells

From Mario Kart! Hey, it was nice having huge bricks that you could basically toss at anyone you wanted. And apparently, the red shells are way better than the green ones, which almost NEVER hit their target and instead just ricocheted into the far, sad distance. (Maybe that was just me? Did any of you have better luck with the red shells from Mario Kart?).


#3 Gravity Gun

Just like the portal gun, you press the trigger, and something cool happens. In this case, the Gravity Gun, which is a weapon from Half-Life 2, allows you to pick things up and throw it at other stuff. Things… stuff? What am I talking about?

Well, if you want to swing saw blades, computers, barrels, and even other people, you can do all that with the gravity gun! High school bully making you feel really annoyed? Point this gravity gun at him and toss him over…there! I wonder if it would work for really massive things like forklifts and tractors.


#4 The Keyblade(s)

Keyblades are featured in Kingdom Hearts and are weapons used by the main character Sora. They’re essential in the game and can only be wielded by “the strongest hearts.” The nifty thing about these weapons is that they can lock or unlock nearly anything–doors, chests, even entire worlds. And some keyblades can also open the darkness that rests within people’s hearts.

All of the keyblades look really awesome, and they can even change appearance so you can accessorize better~. Ha, just kidding. They really can change shape, though–all you have to do is change the “keychain” that dangles at the bottom of the blade. The keyblades are one of the types of weapons I’m talking about when I say “iconic”–I mean, who doesn’t recognize a photo of one of the keyblades?


#5 The Master Sword

This sword has been around since the age of the SNES, guys. Ever since Link was still just a funny-looking green guy whose face we didn’t really know. The Master Sword has grown from a pixelized rod to a beautiful work of art. So many LoZ game plots have been centered around Link’s quest to actually get the Master Sword, and when he finally does attain it, he uses it to vanquish evil. (I use that term loosely. For some reason, in the LoZ universe, evil just keeps coming back).

It may not necessarily be the most durable weapon, but it is definitely one of the greatest. Considering Breath of the Wild was an open-world game, and it still featured the Master Sword, I’d say that makes it a genuine legendary weapon.


#6 D.Va’s MEKA suit

By this point, even non-Overwatch players know who D.Va is–and for a good reason. Who doesn’t love cute gamers? D.va’s mech is massive, but don’t be fooled–it’s also decently fast (which, you know, doesn’t really make sense in Earth physics, but WHO CARES? IT’S A GIANT PINK ROBOT SUIT!). Her suit has twin Fusion Cannons that can autofire at short range, but she can also use its Boosters to crush enemies.

Honestly, guys? I want this so badly. It’s so awesome–again, who wouldn’t want to run around in a huge suit and CRUSH EVERYONE? Okay, maybe…not that far. One awesome dad actually made a functioning version of the suit for his daughter (video above).

Okay, now that I’m wrapping this post up, I kind of feel like this list should be more about “most iconic video game weapons.” Oops–what do you guys think? What are the most ridiculously OP weapons that I should’ve included in this list?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    This is a lovely list of weapons! I agree though that this should have been about the most iconic video game weapons. Nonetheless, this was good fun especially the portal gun. I love how it incorporated Physics into the game. Smart!

  9. I like and enjoy using Gravity Gun but, not on Half-Life 2. I use Gravity Gun in GTA Vice City in MOD. It’s really funny to see the reactions of the people when you use gravity gun on them.

    The buster Sword for me is not advisable. It is heavy and bulky. I imagine it will greatly affect your speed if this is real.

      You’re off-topic my good man. This isn’t a debate on what weapon would be great to wield in real life… it’s about which ones are deemed the coolest among gamers. And you’ve got to admit that the Buster Sword is an iconic weapon you see replicated across several genres and titles because of its memorable design. If that isn’t the definition of what’s cool (that people want to copy its design over and over), I don’t know what is.

    The portal gun is my pick. I mean it is very useful. You can get teleportation powers with that. It is bulky but the pros are higher than its issues.

    It doesn’t look as cool as Rin’s weapon picks but I think CounterStrike’s AWP sniper rifle stands as one of the most OP video game weaponry. It’s literally one-shot, one-kill.. up until Valve had to nerf it down several notches in subsequent releases. But back in the day, it scared the bejeezus out of every opponent it meets (especially in the hands of a seasoned gamer)

    Woah! I would like to have that Portal Gun please. Lol. That’s a very cool weapon. Just imagine what you can do with the Portal Gun. You can transport from one place to another instantly. It can be used in good ways or bad ways – depending on who is holding it. But it is definitely a powerful weapon.
