A Gallery of 12 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.


The Legend of Zelda‘s Master Sword – Because you want to time travel.


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


World of Warcraft‘s (insert mythical name here) sword – Because you probably have a collection of about 30 other swords.


Halo‘s Energy Sword – Because you want to accidentally kill your cat.


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.


Now someone get out there and make a life size Soul Edge. It would make a nice coffee table.

Update: Here’s a really cool gallery of someone who made a ton of Team Fortress weapons. Thanks, mtrizzy. And yes, Frostmourne, I got it.

  2. So I’m told.

    And yeah, even built them personally. I almost lost an arm forging the buster sword and I keep having to de-ice my car every morning because the Warthog takes up my entire garage.

  4. lol i’m an epic WoW fangirl and i totally want a replica of Frostmourne aswell as all the other weapons hehe. one of my friends does have a replica of the master sword and i can bearly lift it *sigh* stupid weak girl arms hehehe :3

  5. Listen dude good job on the weapons. Anyways to kanker, look here dumbass Frostmourn is most definatly from WoW (world of warcraft). Hello Arthas aka the lich king who’s soul was possesed by frostmourn in the second to last mission in warcraft 3 afterwards becoming the most kick ass death knight in existence. I mean it takes 10-25 people just to kill him. Get your shit right before you post so this doesn’t happen again.

    Final fantasy buster sword ftw (now attempt the 6 piece buster sword from advent children and ill be really impressed)

  6. I will have to say that the Frostmourne sword is probably my fave. I own it, and I will say that the detail is amazing, assuming you bought the authentic Frostmourne with certificate. It is a little heavy though, but it’s not used to combat so it uses Stainless Steel.

    Other great swords (not game swords) are the Lord of the Rings swords. They are detailed, again if you buy the authentic ones, and are a great addition to any collection or if you are a fantasy buff like me.

    Just my 2 cents.
