*** Also, the majority of raiders and settlers, at least early on, will be armed with pipe weapons, which are improvised firearms cobbled together from junk. Fittingly, they're also the weakest class of guns in the game. They're also strangely common in the exact same configuration, especially when it's still easy to find [[RagnarokProofing working pre-war]] weapons and ammo lying around. Is it really easier to engineer a gun out of scrap pipes that doesn't [[ArtisticLicenseGunSafety explode in your hand]] than to rummage through ruins for a more effective handgun?

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' you can obtain schematics for [[HomemadeInventions various weapons]] to make out of the junk which litters the game's AfterTheEnd setting. These weapons themselves qualify to a degree (such as a crossbow made from a paint gun and a toy car and a flaming sword made from a lawnmower blade and a petrol tank) but the straightest example of this trope is the Rock-It-Launcher, which can fire ''anything'' you put into it as a projectile.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', most of Link's early weapons tend to be this. From a tree branch to a tree axe to a pitchfork to a Stal creature arm... Link can pretty much use anything that isn't nailed down as a weapon.

* Although you're supposed to use the [[SwordOfPlotAdvancement Master Sword]] to deflect Agahnim's magic blasts back at him, in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', the bugcatcher net will do quite nicely at this, as well.

** Whenever a BarBrawl starts, dwarves tend to use the first thing at hand, which is usually their drinking implements. Not too terrible if they're drinking with wooden cups, but it gets nasty if they've been given stone mugs, and Armok help them if you gave them +iron goblets+.

** Whenever a BarBrawl starts, dwarves tend to use the first thing at hand, which is usually their drinking implements. Not too terrible if they're drinking with wooden cups, but it gets nasty if they've been given stone mugs, and Armok help them if you gave them +iron goblets+. Of course, dwarves are also significantly more aggressive now, so chances are if a sudden threat pops up they'll dogpile it and beat the piss out of it with those same mugs, so it's not always a bad idea to give them heavy ones.
