The Fifth Element (1997)
An assault rifle that can break down into four pieces, undetectable by x-rays, with a 3000 round magazine, a "replay" button that sends all shots to a given location, a rocket launcher, an arrow launcher (with poison or explosive-tipped arrows), a net launcher, a flamethrower, a freeze feature, and self-destruct.
Blade: Trinity (2004)
The UV arc is a weapon that it's shaped from a form of a bow and the string acts as a powerful "UV" sabre which is the equal hotness of the sun or Even stronger, it can cut through metal like a knife through butter!
This pair of pistols fire "Sun Dogs", explosive rounds that emit a burst of ultraviolet light. A miniature camera is mounted next to the barrel, recording to a disc housed in the rear of the slide assembly.
One of the most advanced pieces of equipment carried by the Predators, the smart disc is internally powered and can be held in the hand, or thrown at an opponent.
This device is capable of cutting through most substances with its devastating razor edges, and is powerful enough to cut through multiple targets with one throw.
Computer-controlled gyros guarantee that the disc returns to its wielder, but if it becomes embedded in a solid material it can be returned by the push of a control-panel button.
The Predators possess extremely powerful Shuriken weapons, with retractable blades that can easily slice through many layers of flesh. Though the Shuriken is the more primitive of the Predator weapons, the versatile blades can be used as throwing weapons or as slashing fist weapons, and Predators often use them for close range combat.
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.
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)
Tiny swarm of robots programmed to do all kinds of funky shit, from eating metal to reconstructing facial tissue and mind control, these nifty bots can cover just about any plot hole with a little reprogramming.
Delta-6 Accelerator Suit
These suits greatly enhances the wearers speed and strength and even agility which is armed with triple explosive heat-seeking fire-and-forget rockets and a 10mm caseless Gatling submachine gun capable of firing 50 rounds per second. It also has a touchscreen computer in the visor of the helmet (meaning your thoughts and strategies,etc. can be seen in the screen of your helmet).
Judge Dredd (1995)
Dredd’s Lawgiver pistol looks awesome and has insane specs. Firing several unique types of rounds, including ricochet bullets, incendiary rounds and explosive shells – and of course the obligatory ‘execution’ style single shot – this is a gun you would not want to be on the wrong side of. Only thing is, this is exactly where you’ll always be because it explodes if picked up by anyone except its owner.
The Holy Shotgun is seen as a firearm constructed out of Holy Relics, firing gold rifled slugs encased in engraved 12 gauge sized shells. It also has the "Dragon's Breath" flamethrower mounted beneath the barrel.
An ornate tube that shoots fire, given to Constantine by Beeman
The only gun to be called a friend (and a little one, at that), this beauty of a beast helped Tony Montana go out with one hell of a bang. Everyone knows the scene: THAT office. THOSE guys. THAT accent. And of course, THAT gun. Certainly not the bloodiest weapon on this list, it’s not the body count but the way it was used.
No Country for Old Men (2007)
Captive Bolt Pistol
Chigurh seems to prefer to use a Captive Bolt Pistol on his victims when he can. He also uses it to blow out door locks. The Captive Bolt Pistol is a pneumatic gun that fires a bolt into the brains of cattle to stun them before slaughter. Like the name suggests the bolt never entirely leaves the gun, it is shot out by air (or a blank) and then retracts back into the gun by return springs. Though not a "firearm" it is a gun and does play a big role in several scenes.
Men in Black (1997)
The Noisy Cricket, possibly the tiniest MIB gun, can cause some serious damage. Agent J is shown an awesome-looking Series-4 De-atomizer, but is actually issued a puny-looking Noisy Cricket. The Cricket can punch a clean hole through a truck.
This micro alien pistol not only renders it's target into melted void, its recoil knocks Agent J off his feet. It looks familiar to those gimmick cigarette lighters that are shaped like guns. Light your cigarette with this mini-hellfire and you're sure to kick the habit.
A lightsaber is a fictional weapon in the Star Wars universe. It consists of a polished metal hilt which projects a blade of plasma about 1.33 metres long. The lightsaber's blade cuts through most substances without resistance. It leaves cauterized wounds in flesh, but can be deflected by another lightsaber's blade, or by energy shields.
The DL-44 was a powerful, highly modifiable and accurate blaster pistol. It packed a heavy punch compared to other pistols without losing accuracy, which made it a prime choice among many groups and individuals, ranging from smugglers and bounty hunters to military and the Rebellion.
Aside from being a powerful and reliable sidearm, the weapon had other attractive features such as a vibration system built into the handgrip that pulsed gently to alert the user that the weapon had only five shots left, and the ability to charge a bolt twice as powerful into a capacitor without damaging the sidearm. Like most handguns, its gear typically included a motion-sensitive scope and galven circuitry that allowed the pistol to deal more damage with a normal energy drain and fire rate.
The Jackal (1997)
The long-range gun is controlled by cell phone or computer and may be aimed using a joystick. The rounds are made from depleted uranium, adding even more menace to the already lethal weapon. The only problem with the gun is its accuracy.
Beverly Hills Cop III (1994)
The Annihilator 2000 has the conveniences of a cellphone, fax and microwave oven. Night-vision goggles, microprocessor, verbal alarm system, compact disc player, digital AM/FM radio, video camera and playback functions. It's also a gun, apparently.
Iron Man (2008)
Powered Armor Suit
Iron Man possesses powered armor suit with forearm mounted anti-tank missiles, steering and retrothrust jets in the palms which double as repulsors, small anti-personnel guns in the shoulders, flare launchers on the hips, and a uni-beam projector in the center of his chest.
This one is surely up for some debate. While it didn’t shed the most blood (Aragon’s sword), have the longest range (Legolas’ bow) or have the most style (Gandalf’s staff and beard combo), how can you deny Frodo and his glowing toothpick? Subtle, elegant and handy when you can’t find your way to the bathroom at night, The Sting definitely held it’s own up against the big boys.
The "Bio Force Gun v3.14" (humorously referred to as "Big Fucking Gun" by Sarge), is the most destructive hand-held weapon used in the movie. The projectile consists of a superheated ball of plasma, melting anything in the blast radius. The plasma can burn through several metres of solid rock and will continue to slowly burn away at the target for several seconds.
Blade Runner (1982)
The gun that Deckard uses is an Austrian Steyr/Mannlicher bolt-action rifle with the stock and barrel removed, leaving just the receiver. A pistol-grip was added for effect.
The Steyr rifle action has a very distinctive bolt-handle and trigger-guard; in fact, the particular receiver used possessed the target-style set trigger system (two triggers).
Dagger of Time
The Dagger of Time is an Artifact linked to the Sands of Time. It enables the wielder to reverse, stop, slow, and use various Sand Powers, as well as protect him/her from changes in the timeline or alteration by the Sands.
Planet Terror (2007)
Yet another amputee that manages to make the best out of a bad situation. Rose McGowan's character, Cherry Darling, shows that being a really limber quadruped has its advantages, particularly with a M4 Carbine (with grenade launcher!) as a prosthesis.
M41-A Pulse Rifle
The M41 Pulse rifle was the primary infantry weapon of the Colonial Marines during the late 22nd century. The M41A in particular saw regular use in engagements with the xenomorph and Predator species.
The rifle derives its name from its unique firing mechanism which uses electronic pulses rather than a firing pin to ignite its propellant. This lowers the amount of moving parts that the weapon needs to operate, as well as improving its rate of fire.
Shaun of the Dead (2004)
The Cricket Bat
What would be the most unlikely weapon to beat the un-living daylights out of a zombie horde? Nightstick? Done. Chainsaw? Borrrrrringgggg. Cricket bat? Now we're talking. Simon Pegg's weapon of choice is one of the most awesome pieces of wood in cinematic history. Not as sinister looking as a baseball bat, this angled piece of lumber saved Shaun and his friends collective "arses" a number of times.
The point-of-view gun makes up for its lack in explosive power with pure drama . It packs a punch, but more of an existential one. Once it is fired, anybody in its path will uncontrollably reveal the thoughts of the shooter.
A Clockwork Orange (1972)
Alex uses a giant porcelain penis as a murder weapon. It's so bizarre, yet so damn funny and twisted. Kubrick's sense of humor is sick, but it's the kind of sick you want more of.
Starship Troopers (1997)
M55 Nuke Launcher
What’s a sci-fi movie without a weapon of mass destruction? That’s what the makers of Starship Troopers thought which gave birth to this badass weapon – the 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!
Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008)
Holy Water Bazooka
I’m not sure where you would find a regular-water bazooka, but once you find one I imagine it’s a simple process to switch the water out, or bring the bazooka to church and have the existing water blessed. I’m sure they get requests for that all the time.
Van Helsing (2004)
Gas Operated Automatic Crossbow
Carl (David Wenham) gives Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) a custom built Crossbow which automatically fires bolts from a rotating drum. The bow is said to be gas operated, but since it isn't a gun, the tank fitted in the stock is assumed to be the "gas", like a C02 tank.
The Rock (1996)
VX Gas Rocket
If the rocket renders it aerosol, it could take out an entire city of people… It’s a cholinesterase inhibitor. Stops the brain from sending nerve messages down the spinal cord within thirty seconds. Any epidermal exposure or inhalation and you’ll know. A twinge at the small of your back as the poison seizes your nervous system…Your muscles freeze, you can’t breathe, you spasm so hard you break your own back and spit your guts out. But that’s after your skin melts off.
Minority Report (2002)
A night stick which emits a sonic frequency on contact, causing the victim to projectile vomit uncontrollably.
Dirty Harry (1971)
The Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver is still popular today thanks to Dirty Harry and the film even led to a spike in sales during its theatrical release. Now you tell me that’s not an influential weapon.
The Proton Pack is a fictional firearm used for weakening ghosts and aiding in capturing them within the Ghostbusters universe. First depicted in the film Ghostbusters, it has a hand-held wand ("Neutrona Wand" or particle thrower) connected to a backpack-sized particle accelerator. It fires a positively charged stream of protons that attract the negatively charged energy of a ghost, allowing it to be held in the stream while active.
Heat Seeking Bullets
Bullets that could be encoded with an individual target’s unique thermal signature, and once fired would follow them, even around corners, until they hit the target.
The Terminator (1984)
The only weapon on this list that can walk on its own, the glowing red eyes and the shimmery skeletal structure launched this shiny death machine into iconic stardom. But even WITH skin on, he looked terrifying. This thing couldn’t be stopped by uzis, shotguns, pipe-bombs, car crashes or even an ENTIRE police department. Also that he’s a relentless, soulless and, in the beginning, pants-less killer helps.
From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
Tired of operating a wooden stake with your bare hands like some sort of barbarian caveman? Well, simply attach said stake to any old jackhammer you have lying around the house, and go to town with the most phallic weapon on the list.
District 9 (2009)
Alien Assault Rifle
The splattery effects of the weapon are sometimes disgusting, as body parts go flying, but the really distinctive thing about the alien arms in District 9 are their reliance on DNA to enable operation. That's what makes the hapless Wikus (Sharlto Copley) so attractive to his human overlords after his arm begins to mutate into a claw.
Super Mario Bros. (1993)
The gun is truly unlike any of other weapon on the list. While it doesn’t kill, its ability to turn the toughest human into a goofy chimpanzee is quite enough to fear.
Mars Attacks! (1996)
The ray gun pistol employed by the Martians is definitely effective, vaporizing human flesh and leaving behind nothing but a skeleton.
A gun so goddamned awesome it’s even been recreated as a replica for toys and Airsoft. Despite the other weapons at his disposal, Robocop delves out his mechanical justice with the Auto-9 – the spearhead of his arsenal – and who wouldn’t? It’s one of the coolest looking weapons ever. Based on a Beretta, the weapon has a widened barrel and is designed to fire three round bursts in the general direction of bad dudes and wonky faced henchmen with brutal robo-precision. Plus it lives in a holster in his leg. Awesome.
Possibly the holiest weapon ever made, Hellboy’s much cherished sidearm is reputedly forged from Irish church bells and blessed metals, and has a handle made from the wood of Christ’s crucifix. Suffice to say, Hellboy certainly doesn’t waste all those sacred relics by letting his Samaritan gather dust in some cupboard. He is routinely seen pummeling generally bad dudes and occult Nazi foot soldiers with his unique types of religious ammunition, including shells containing holy water and garlic shavings.
Jetpack with two XM124 Micro guns
Best things about it: It flies :), its got TWO machine guns on either sides and the qualifications for operating it is that you must be a pussy fighter with intolerance to pain due to taking too much of an ass-whooping in the past, and also you need to know how to use a joystick. And not only does it kill people, but it demolishes whole sides of massive buildings run by mafia bosses.
The Grammaton Gun
This is the primary weapon used in "Gun Kata" or "Gun Fu." The Gun Kata shown in Equilibrium is a hybrid mix of Kurt Wimmer's own style of Gun Kata (which he invented in his backyard) and the martial arts style of the choreographer.
People have been getting gutted by pirates, incensed amputees, and other assorted hooked maniacs way before the days of Candyman, but never have people been ravaged by such a nasty looking hook. Not only is the corroded hook of Candyman hundreds of years old, it's so sloppily jammed into the mangled hunk of flesh where his hand used to be, making this horror movie weapon one of the single most terrifying things to be gored with. Just watch this clip and tell us it doesn't send shivers down your spine.
This Canadian mutant has incredible healing powers, is super-strong, and possesses some impressive claws! In addition to their destructive power, Wolverine’s claws have become as iconic as any hand-held weapon in film.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Freddy’s claw has become the stuff of nightmares on and off the set since 1984. Born from the twisted mind of Wes Craven, the director claims to have come up with the idea from watching a cat scratch its claws on a couch.
Myers chose simplicity and stuck with an old standard butcher knife. Mike could have upgraded to something more elaborate after killing his sister, but sometimes you just gotta stick with what works. :))
Friday the 13th (1980)
While Jason used many creative instruments for his kills (hot poker, ax, spear gun), the machete was his go-to weapon for those special moments.
A rail gun uses magnetic force to propel projectiles towards targets at high velocity, with no need for an explosive charge and with little recoil to worry about. The rounds-per-minute on a rail gun is staggering.
Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
Gogo Yubari’s Chain Mace
Regardless of influence, the weapon is deadly and unpredictable. In the hands of the sinister Gogo Yubari, it is even more lethal. The ball and chain has many options. It is used to choke, slice and strike The Bride.
The bullwhip has saved countless lives, swung Indiana Jones over deadly pits, snagged guns from enemy hands, strangled a handful of foes and even gave the hero a chin scar as a teenager.
