* In ''Film/TheATeam'', this is done with a tank's main gun. The tank was dropped out of a plane, but it lost two of its three chutes. The recoil was used to aim the tank towards a lake and then to soften the landing.

* On ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Fifth Doctor does this with a cricket ball. Since he bounces it off a space ship, he gets the added inertia ''twice''. (Once when he throws it, once when he catches it.)

* ''VideoGame/{{Crysis}}'''s engine supports true weapon recoil, which has important effects [[spoiler:in space]]. One of its mods, ''[[MechWarrior Mechwarrior: Living Legends]]'', features a ground troop weapon (the [[ShockAndAwe Man-Pack PPC]]) that creates enough recoil with one shot as to provide you a good 15 [[superscript:km]]∕[[subscript:h]] in the opposite direction. The low gravity map provides extended entertainment when using this weapon, but it is regardless useful as an extra manoeuvring tool.

* This would work with hand-held weapons in a microgravity environment, and is essentially a small-scale version of ExplosionPropulsion. Unless specially modified for vacuum, however, many gun cartridges wouldn't work in space.[note]Chiefly because, to fire properly, the cartridge needs an oxidizing agent, the most common being [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin oxygen]] from the air. However, self-oxidizing powders do exist.[/note] And trying this on a space station would be... [[ExplosiveDecompression inadvisable]].
