Klaatu's Nanites

The 2008 version of the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still showed us the nanites—a self-replicating insect—that basically acts like big chompers to destroy everything that crosses their path. In fact, the movie showed these nanites chomp up a whole Hummer like it was just a candy bar!

The Phaser from the Star Trek series reminds us of the default weapon in video games. It is considered the underdog and is even ignored, until the protagonist is on his last straw and there are no other big guns to help him out. The Starfleet Phaser is in itself is a strong weapon, and although it looks like a weird glue gun, it has enough power to vaporize a human being. It is also versatile enough to simply stun the bad guy. If you think about it, a weapon like this would be awesome in some situations. Boss giving you extra work? Set to stun! A pesky salesman at your front door? Set to stun, or kill, whatever.

Men in Black (1997)
The Noisy Cricket

Not much is known about the Noisy Cricket, except that its size is about that of a ladies’ pistol, and that it can blast open a new hotel window and make nothing out of a towing truck.

Predator (1987)
Plasma Caster

The Plasma Caster is just one weapon out of the many that were first seen in the Predator series. The Plasma Caster is a shoulder-mounted energy weapon which fires a brilliant blue or gold plasma pulse. It is helped by a laser sight built into the Predator’s helmet. The Plasma Caster could be controlled to fire minor wounds or even bring down a big aircraft. It comes so down in the list because it is one of the most vulnerable weapons that the Predator carried, but it could also be used as a hand-held weapon to stun enemies.

M55 Nuke Launcher

The M55 Nuke Launcher, as the name suggests, is designed to launch a nuclear weapon which has the potential to destroy large bugs and arachnid tunnels. Oh, and it’s shoulder mounted too!

Doom (2005)

The BFG has had a life of its own, right from the computer game to the movies. It has been revered by everyone who has ever been on the right side of an evil-smashing gun. Of course, the BFG got a new life when none other than the Rock himself wielded it in the movie, and even the Rock had to give a nod to the real name of the gun – Big Fucking Gun, though the movie named it something boring – so boring that nobody remembers it.

Eraser (1996)
Rail Gun

Basically, the rail gun is an entirely electrical gun that accelerates a conductive projectile along a pair of metal rails. This particular rail gun comes equipped with a special sensor that allows the shooter to bypass walls to see the enemy, and even keep a tab on their heartbeat rate – surely something to be very careful about.

Light Saber

The light saber is a blade of pure energy that is about a meter long. The energy is simple plasma, and is the signature weapon of both the Jedi and the Sith, and if both enemies like the same weapon, you should just accept that it is indeed a kickass weapon. The light saber increases its kickass points by the ability to be used either as an offensive or a defensive weapon.
Here's Luke when Obi Wan gives him his fathers old Light saber:

Zorg's ZF-1

Zorg’s ZF-1 from the Fifth Element is basically an 'All in One', but only of the Alien world. So, you have a gun that basically acts as a flamethrower, has a wicked net launcher, which also works like Spider Man’s net fluid. To get back to the basics, it also has some nifty arrows to more than pick the brains of the enemy.• Its rocket launcher comes as an added advantage, at no extra cost. And as Zorg tells us, the grand finale is the ice cube launcher that renders the enemy into a big ice cube that you can shatter and use with your drink.

Death Star

The Death Star is a space station, the purpose of which is to destroy planets and blast their enemies. The Death Star has a crew of more than 265,000, with thousands of gunners, troops, storm troopers, pilots, support crews, and ship support staff. The Death Star itself contains Blast boats, Strike Cruisers, Support Ships, Land Vehicles, Assault Shuttles, and several other sci-fi weapons like tractor beam projectors, turbo laser batteries, and other interesting stuff.

Modern day weapons seem obsolete when compared to any of the following weapons originated from Science Fiction movies. They were born from the imagination of writers; some are feasible enough to be a real weapon in a near future, while other will continue to be fiction for a long time to come.
