A lot of gun culture originates in action films and Hollywood scripts however, movie magic means a lot of the story is made up — even the guns. Let’s pretend that we’re the hero for a moment. Suspend your disbelief, let your imagination run wild and check out these guns.
- Bishop’s Plasma Gun
Bishop is a badass mutant from the future who travels through time to join the X-Men. His powers are energy absorption and transfusion. He’s known for carrying a big plasma gun that’s connected to a vein in his arm. It allows him to transfer the energy he has absorbed into the gun and shoot plasma bursts.
- Han Solo’s Heavy Blaster Pistol
As an intergalactic smuggler and daring pilot turned Rebel Alliance General, Han Solo is known for packin’ a DL-44 sidearm blaster. He’s a quick draw and accurate marksman — just ask Greedo.
“Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.“
- Captain Kirk’s Phaser Rifle
Star Trek’s various series and movies contain different models of the phaser rifle. One of the coolest looking versions appeared on the second pilot episode of the original series, titled Where No Man Has Gone Before. Captain Kirk beams down to the planet Delta Vega while packin’ this special protection.
The prop version of this iconic weapon was sold in 2013 at an auction for $240K. Check out this video to learn more.
- Duke Nukem’s Devastator
The Devastator is one of the most powerful guns in the history of video games, appearing in both Duke Nukem 3D (1996) and Duke Nukem Forever (2011). It is a double-barrelled brute force weapon with rapid-fire projectile rocket swarms and high accuracy at short range.
- Iron Grenadier’s Short Burst LL-9 Laser Pistol
These high ranking special elite forces will often carry a sword, black Uzi machine gun, and the ultra-sleek, compact red laser pistol with angular emitters.
- The Mandalorian’s Amban Phase-Pulse Blaster
This is a modified disruptor sniper rifle, capable of disintegrating targets at long range with an electro-shock taser for close range — perfect for intergalactic bounty hunting.
