** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' features the Syringer, a rifle that fires syringes full of toxic chemicals that cause various debuffs; the Junk Jet, a spiritual successor to the Rock-It launcher from Fallout 3 that fires just about anything you can think of; and the Cryolator, a pseudo-FreezeRay that sprays the enemy with cryogenic chemicals and can also be modded to fire chunks of ice.

The DLCs add some LethalJokeWeapon types, such as a Fatman that's been modified to fire bowling balls, a paddle-ball that electrocutes targets, and a squirt gun that fires weaponized Nuka-Cola Quantum that explodes ForMassiveDamage.

** [[WebComic/SchlockMercenary Schlock]] took someone else's gun (out of a storage locker) because he though it would shot hammers. His commander promptly quashed any further attempts to look for one that would actually do so.

--> '''Schlock'': The box said "Blattco Clawhammer", but I think it just shoots regular bullets....
--> '''Ebbirnoth''': If you ever '''do''' find a gun that fires hammers, you are under explicit orders to put it back where you found it.

* The ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' [[VideoGame/UnrealTournament2004 se]][[VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII ries]] has mostly-conventional StandardFPSGuns, the impact hammer aside, but one of the more interesting ones is the GES Biorifle, a goo gun which you can either slime someone with or lay down explosive poisonous traps with.
** The goo gun doesn't appear in ''VideoGame/UnrealIITheAwakening'', which instead has something much weirder: a gun that shoots spiders. Primary fire covers a target in spiders, which doesn't kill them very quickly but does make them run around screaming "Aaaaaaagh get them off meeeeeeee!" For this reason it may well be the second-most fun weapon in the game. Secondary fire shoots a glob of biomass that turns into a big spider when you hit it with the primary fire; the spider then follows you and attacks your enemies. Then there's the BFG that shoots miniature black holes.
** The entire Unreal series is very friendly to weird weaponry, thanks to the way the engine works. Open up the editor, find a projectile-launching weapon, substitute the class name of the bullet with that of most other entities in the game world, and... voila, a Stinger that fires rockets, or ASMD blast-balls, or grenades. Or ''rabbits''.

** The goo Stinger in [[VideoGame/UnrealI the first game]] fires shards of Tarydium crystals. Primary fire works as a low-tier machine gun doesn't appear with slow projectiles at a low cyclic rate, and AlternateFire shoots five at once in ''VideoGame/UnrealIITheAwakening'', which instead a cheap imitation of a shotgun; fortunately, damage per shot makes it fairly efficient and Tarydium shards are more plentiful than most other ammo types. Justified in that it was first designed as a mining tool, not a combat weapon. ''VideoGame/UnrealTournamentIII'' re-tools the Stinger into the Stinger [[GatlingGood Minigun]], with a HitScan primary fire and SecondaryFire (similar to the original Stinger's primary, a volley of slow shards) being pinpoint accurate and quite powerful, enough to [[PinnedToTheWall pin corpses to the scenery]].

** Before WWII, the US fielded battleships fitted with special cannons to launch seaplanes as spotter aircraft. (The aircraft rode a sort of sled pushed by the explosive charge, so it isn't quite as cool as it might have sounded there.)

** Don't forget grenades. There are grenades that open a portal to hell, grenades that stop time, anti-magic grenades (which are made from the Emperor's waste products), EMP grenades, hallucinogenic gas grenades, and grenades which unleash a virulent virus.

* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' for UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} has...[[ToiletHumour yellow snowballs]]. The most powerful weapon is a cow launcher. There are grenades that look like Terence and Philip dolls; they fart to explode. The game's equivalent to a sniper rifle is a chicken that shoots eggs. You even aim it through a little notch in its tail feathers!

* ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'': The Paintinator fires paint pellets, which doesn't do much other than splatter surfaces in colourful splatters unless there's a paint sensor connected to an action on the object. The Creatinator fires an object of your choice from water to fire to bombs to cheese; the possibilities are endless. The said can be said for emitters which can be used to set up turrets and other weapondary.

* In ''{{Vangers}}'' there is a basic machinegun that makes ammo out of dirt and water. Also a gun that shoots money.
