* The majority of the firearms in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' are actual firearms with a cartoonish design to them. And there are those of entirely fictious origin, such as Demoman's Sticky Bomb Launchers or Scout's Scattergun. There are also many promotional weapons that are added, for example [[http://drgrordborts.com/products Dr. Grordbort]].
* The ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' series' contribution is the infamous Cerebral Bore. It is a weapon that launches a projectile which homes in on the head of an enemy, drilling into their skull with a geyser of blood, capping off with an explosion.

* [[AlmightyJanitor Kurt Hectic]], the main character of ''VideoGame/{{MDK}}'' has a [[MoreDakka chain gun]], which is [[ArmCannon attached to his arm]], and carries [[BottomlessMagazines unlimited ammo]]. The other major weapon in the game is a sniper gun. This is created when Kurt detaches his chain gun from his arm and mounts it onto his [[CoolHelmet helmet]]. The sniper weapon [[SwissArmyWeapon can zoom up to 100x, and has the capability of supporting five different types of ammunition, including homing missiles and mortar shells]]. Kurt's helmet in sniper mode also offers him protection from friction and heat during the [[ItsRainingMen atmospheric entry sections]]. There are also three [[ArrowCam Bullet Cams]] that track each projectile and linger briefly after impact, showing any damage done. However, when Kurt is in sniper mode, he is unable to move, and can thus be easily targeted by enemies.



to:

* The Mobile Infantry of ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' are armed with the Morita assault rifle with underbarrel shotgun attachments. Though it doesn't appear to be effective against the bugs unless whole squads concentrate their fire on a target. There is also the Tactical Oxygen Nuke launchers, which are a lot more effective in combat.

* ''Manga/VampireKnight'': Zero's version of the Desert Eagle [[spoiler:that eventually can be transformed into ''metal vines'' at his whim]] certainly counts.


* For those who played the second and third games of the ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' series, would most likely remember the Cerebral Bore. It is a weapon that launches a homing projectile, drills into the enemy's skull while launching a geyser of blood, and caped off by an explosion.

It's one of the rare examples of a fictional Cool Gun to show up outside of its originating work, most notably in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' video game series.

* Almost every blaster in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' saga is this by principle, all based on a real world firearm mocked up to look futuristic. Two of the most popular weapons are the DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol (based on the Mauser C96 pistol & Han Solo's weapon of choice), and the E-11 Blaster Rifle (based on the Sterling submachine gun, standard issue for the Imperial Stormtroopers). A blaster not based on any firearm would be Chewbacca's Bowcaster, which was shown to be a powerful weapon in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' and ''Film/TheForceAwakens''.

Guns]]

[[AC:Anime and Manga]]
* In Creator/MasamuneShirow's works, the small arms manufacturer [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seburo Seburo]] and their productions appear frequently, alongside real guns.
* The Dominators from ''Anime/PsychoPass.'' Accept no substitutes. The second season and the movie introduce the [[{{BFG}} Assault Dominator]], which can [[ArmorPiercingAttack shoot through walls.]]
* Blitz Talker's revolver from ''Anime/ReCreators,'' which uses the rare 6 o' clock barrel position that was invented by the [[RareGuns Mateba Auto-Revolver]] and is currently in used by the [[CoolGuns/{{Revolvers}} Chiappa Rhino.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' gives us the Good Samaritan, a giant revolver that fires four very large and powerful shots. The barrel and cylinder are forged from church bells, with the grips made from pieces of the cross Jesus was crucified on. There is also Big Baby, which is this time a revolving shotgun that fires very large shells.


Added DiffLines:

[[AC:Video Games]]
* The Gravity Gun from ''VideoGame/HalfLife2''. With your own personal tractor beam at your side, you can pick up all manner of objects to shoot at your enemy, including buzzsaws. [[spoiler: Then it gets supercharged at the end of the game and those caught in the shadow of Gordon Freeman have cause to fear.]]
* [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} The Portal Gun]] is a rather odd example of a gun seeing as it isn't particularly useful for violent encounters outside of some very specific scenarios. Still, a gun is a gun and there's nothing quite like being able to connect two distant places with a portal to a flat wall.
* [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Reaper's Hellfire shotguns]] don't behave much differently to regularly guns. He dual wields two of them and they fire four shots apiece. Rather than reloading an empty gun, however, Reaper simply tosses his guns aside and pulls a new pair out from his BadassLongcoat. Still, though, those guns are ''very'' stylish and cool.
* While the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' series gave many different weapons, the weapon that tops them all would have to be the [[{{BFG}} BFG9000]], which makes mincemeat of many demons Doomguy encounters.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series features the Fat Man, a personal mini nuke launcher. It's generally one of if not the strongest weapon in the game, and can defeat most enemies in a single shot. Sadly, the rarity and expense of ammo and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard risk of getting caught in the blast]] often keep it in the AwesomeButImpractical or TooAwesomeToUse category, brought out only for the most dangerous enemies. If you didn't forget it in storage, because it's one of the heaviest weapons available.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein}}'' series is a semi-frequent offender, ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' having the biggest imapct for being the TropeCodifier for the [[GatlingGood chaingun]] as a staple for shooter games, and its 2001 sequel ''VideoGame/ReturnToCastleWolfenstein'' making it better with the Venom chaingun, a [[{{BFG}} 12.7mm monstrosity]] that can and will reduce anything to little giblets. ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'' also gives us the Laserkraftwerk, a big, bulky [[FrickinLaserBeams laser gun]] that starts out primarily as a tool like the Gravity or Portal guns above, but with upgrades across the game eventually turning into one of your biggest and best options, able to turn an entire squadron of Nazis into cinders with one shot.
* Like with the films above, the ''Star Wars'' video games also has a nice few weapons that you can get your hands on.
** The ''VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga'' has a nice variety, ranging from the [[BoringButPractical humble]] sawed-down Bryar pistol to the [[{{BFG}} concussion rifle]] - the latter being conspicuously absent in ''VideoGame/JediKnightIIJediOutcast'' in favor of the PLX missile launcher, but returning with a vengeance in ''VideoGame/JediKnightJediAcademy''. ''Outcast'' even gives the ''Star Wars'' equivalent of an assault rifle with a grenade launcher in the form of the Imperial Heavy Repeater.
** The [[SwissArmyWeapon DC-17m Interchangeable Weapon System]] issued to Delta Squad in ''VideoGame/RepublicCommando''. It's a blaster rifle, a sniper rifle, and even an anti-armor grenade launcher that can easily be reconfigured for the right job in two seconds. Also, there is the [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter ACP Array Gun]] and the Wookiee Rocket Launcher that can be picked up.
* ''Lots'' of guns from ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' qualify. A few standout examples are the Laptop Gun, an SMG with a 50 round capacity that disguises as a laptop and can be thrown to operate autonomously as a WeakTurretGun, the RC-P120, another SMG with a [[MoreDakka gargantuan 120 round magazine]] and a built-in [[InvisibilityCloak cloaking device]], and the Devastator grenade launcher which can launch [[StickyBomb sticky grenades]]. That doesn't even get into the alien weapons, among which the absolute standout examples would be the Farsight XR-20, a rail gun with a built-in [[XRayVision X-Ray scope]] that assists you in shooting through walls, and the Slayer rocket launcher which gives you the option to manually control its rocket as it flies.
