Default Favorite Fictional Firearms

What are your favorite fictional guns?

Mine is probalbly a toss up between Deckard's gun from "Blade Runner" and the Pulse Rifle from "Aliens." They still hold up in appearance after all these years.

Also, I don't know if any of you have seen them as there are no screencaps on here of them nor have I seen pics of them anywhere, those futurized M4A1/M203-type carbines that were used by US troops in an episode of GitS: SAC 2G.

I didn't care for the guns in Aliens, just so you know before asking.

That's Megatron from Transformers, right? I remember someone once mentioning he turned into a gun in the original show.

Yeah, he was a Man From UNCLE Walther P38, with the scope, stock and barrel extension.



The extension and stock form a weird monopod-mounted weapon for him, the scope is his 'fusion cannon.' They stopped with that because he counts as a replica firearm.

Huh. What were those designers smoking?

Everyone else picked a car to disguise as and he becomes a gun. Typical depiction of a bad guy decision...

Best fictional weapon? That Calico made to look like a minigun from Deep Rising. And the Auto-9.

The M41A Pulse Rifles from "Aliens" and the Morita rifles from "Starship Troopers". And while it is complete fiction, Hellboy's Samaritan is a pretty cool gun, although it never gets carrying capacity and reloading right in the films.

I don't watch a lot of sci-fi so that's about it. All the other ones are listed here.
