* Played straight and inverted ''and'' double subverted in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' games. Human weapons and ships, which are primarily kinetic, are boxy and grayish. Covenant ships and plasma weapons are curved, colorful, and ornate. Forerunner laser and HardLight weapons are once again boxy (though in a more angular way), though also ornate with glowy bits.

* While a lot of the weapons in VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} are sleek and futuristic, a few are distincly boxy. [[http://overwatch.wikia.com/wiki/Heavy_Pulse_Rifle The Heavy Pulse Rifle in particular is little more than a long rectangle with a few moving pieces on either side.

* ''SaintsRow2'' has the AR-50 assault rifle, and while technically the game isn't set in the future, the weapon itself is a prototype developed by the [[RedFaction Ultor Corporation]].
* ''[[VideoGame/{{Battlefield}} Battlefield 2142]]:'' Despite being made of "[[HandWave advanced polymers]]", some of the weapons are outrageously boxy and larger than their modern-day counterparts. Example: [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/battlefield/images/b/b0/SCAR_11_AR.png/revision/latest?cb=20110204173947]]. Interestingly, the unlocked weapons which are often more popular tend to more closely resemble real guns.

* ''[[RedFaction Red Faction: Guerrilla]]'' does a good boxy gun. It does several good boxy guns. Boxiest would be the assault rifle, which looks like it hasn't been unpacked from the box it came in. [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/RFG_assaultrifle.jpg]]

* While most (non-mecha) guns in Anime/MacrossFrontier look more or less similar to modern weapons, the heavy rifles carried by [[PowerArmor EX-Gear]] troops definitely play this trope straight.

The most recognizable of modern compact weapons (Steyr [=AUG=], FN P90, H&K G11) were given final form during TheEighties, when boxy, plasticky shapes and textures were the norm in industrial design, so they may look a bit [[{{Zeerust}} Zeerusty]] by the present day.
