18th Nov: We've switched servers and will be updating the old code over the next couple months, meaning that several things might break. Please report issues here.
Clarence Boddicker: "Cobra Assault Cannon, state of the art bang bang!"
Emil: "I LIKE IT!"
"The GAU-8 Avenger fires up to sixty one-pound bullets a second. It produces almost five tons of recoil force, which is crazy considering that it’s mounted in a type of plane (the A-10 “Warthog”) whose two engines produce only four tons of thrust each. If you put two of them in one aircraft, and fired both guns forward while opening up the throttle, the guns would win and you’d accelerate backward.
To put it another way: If I mounted a GAU-8 on my car, put the car in neutral, and started firing backward from a standstill, I would be breaking the interstate speed limit in less than three seconds."

Motoko: "What the hell did you use?"
Batou: "Your standard-issue big gun."
If there is any one weapon that defines the the Imperium, it is the bolter. No other weapon combines high technology levels with such delibrate brutality, and no race would consider making it but mankind.
Kerchak: Colonel, the non-lethal weapons are tiny. It's embarrassing.
Jaksmouth: I've seen the weapons the mercenaries are using. They're big. Non-regulation big, even.
Kerchak: Oh yeah?
Jaksmouth: On cold nights, you can fill it up with hot water and have yourself a bath.
Speaking of which, you should now confiscate Lieutenant Piebald's pistol. It can shoot a hole in the world.
We want this weapon to be like the 4th of July.

Yelena: I wanted the BIG gun...
Gun store clerk: No offense, miss, but that weapon would've broken your back the first time you fired it.
Yelena: Because I'm a girl?
Clerk: No. Because it's designed for use by people with two backup spines.
Herman Gluck: He said stay away! Stay away or he'll toss out two dead bodies!

Eleya: You really think we’ll need that SAW?
Commander Birail Riyannis: Says the woman carrying a grenade launcher.
No one could stand in my way. I had a mission. I had a goal. I had a really big gun.

I wonder if we can even carry that gun?
