A Gallery of 10 Real Life Video Game Weapons

There are two things that happen when you convert video game weapons from pixels to steel. The first is you get to see how cool they look, and the second? Well that’s usually how impractical they are to use. Ever try to pick up a sword that weighs more than you? You won’t win many boss battles, believe me. Here are twelve weapons that have made the jump all the way to real life, and why you might buy them.

Doom‘s BFG – Because you need to make a quick exit through a concrete wall.

Final Fantasy VII‘s Buster Sword
– Because you can prove what a big man you are.

Gears of War‘s Lancer – Because you spent an absurd amount of money for the collector’s edition.

Assassin’s Creed‘s Majestic Sword
– Because you have an unnatural love for Assassin’s Creed.

Halo‘s Assault Rifle – Because you want to hone your skills in your backyard.

Final Fantasy X‘s Tidus Sword – Because you want to catch an abnormally large fish.

Dead Space‘s Plasma Cutter – Because you’re hopefully not as douchey as this guy.

Final Fantasy VIII‘s Gunblade – Because carrying around a revolver and a sword was just soooo annoying.

Portal‘s Portal gun – Because you’re ****ing awesome.

Bonus! Halo‘s Warthog – Because you’re Peter Jackson and they had to give you something when production on the Halo movie shut down.
