    Ray was right, nobody can argue, Turok 2: Cerebral bore!

    The first time I ever used an explosive rifle in Red Dead Redemption, it was in the mission where you have to hunt a bear in the mountains. I didn't know what it did, and boy, i was not disappointed. That bear didn't exist after i hit it.

    So glad the Farsight was on here but, yeah, the Cerebral Bore should have been on there too. Personally, I would have included the Tommy Gun from Mafia 2, also. The guns in that game felt so damn satisfying to shoot. Somehow they captured the heft and power of firing a gun better than any game I've ever played.

    I say the RYNO 5 from Ratchet and Clank was one of the most satisfying guns, if not the Rift Inducer

    i agree with those but the BF:bad company 2 M1911 and mass effect 2's M920-cain should have made honorable mentions

    Half Life 2 crossbow is the best, it shoots red-hot rebar straight through mofos! Pins them to walls, too.

    My first thought was the Quack-O-Ray from Ratchet and Clank 3: Up Your Arsenal...anyone with me?

    It wasn't the Rock in the Doom movie, it was Karl Urban. Get it right guys :-P

    why is there never any love for fallout?
    You only got like 3 shots with the MIRV, but any more and i would have run out of pants to change

    I think my favorite would have to be the Rift Inducer from Ratchet and Clank. That weapon was awesome..

    I was hoping to see the Pony gun from Red Faction: Armageddon on first place.

    Personally, one of the most satisfying "guns" I've ever experienced in video games was using the crossbow in the multiplayer of Battlefield 3. When you can snipe people across the map with nothing but a crossbow and a relatively low zoom scope, or blow people up with explosive bolts while in the passenger seat of a power-sliding jeep, you feel like a real badass.......

    I would have liked to have seen the Lancer in this video instead of the Hammer of Dawn. The Hammer was great and all but I feel like the chainsaw bayonet was way more satisfying

    I'm with Ray. Farsight foul up aside. #1 should have been the Bore. I'm annoyed that it's not even on the list.

  • Battleballs

    I feel that the Spear gun from Alien vs Predator 2 should of been on this list. You could shoot peoples heads off as the predator and then collect the head in the wall afterwards.

    I agree with Ray, Cerebral Bore was super satisfying to watch as it spewed your enemies' brain matter all over the place and then exploded in their skulls just to add insult to injury.

    Where was the flak cannon from Unreal Tournament?

  • SoulTech64

    i agree with most of these, still surprised that you had the nail gun from fear, instead of the harpoon gun from crackdown 2..... now THAT was satisfying.... i woulda said line gun from dead space, but i guess the plazma cutter was a bit better.... (and why no chainsaw bayonet).. the bayonet was my favorite first-time-use experience of any video game weapon ive used.

    I honestly never liked the gravity gun. It was really bitchy for me when I tried to grab things (the physics in the game don't help), and if I did the object I grabbed obscured 80% of the screen. Although it is necessary to get the neighborhood watch achievement, I'll give it that .

    The Flak Cannon from Unreal Tournament was great, functioned as a powerful shotgun but had an alternate fire that was basically a grenade launcher. Some more great guns in that game, like the Shock Rifle and the Redeemer. Even the Translocator was great.

    My favorite Borderlands gun was any version of the Hellfire, but the infinity pistols were great too, especially with an elemental effect.

    The Farsight is one of the most overpowered guns ever in a video game. The secondary function locates people through the walls and locks onto them!

    Not going to lie, I keep coming back to this video just to hear Ray get mad at Kdin for the Farsight.

    Ray is soo right. Cerebral bore from Turok 2 was super satisfying. Literally mind tucking your opponent. smiley7.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley13.gif

    Does the bow from Turok count as a gun? Well, counts as much as the GOW weapon on the list. That bow though. Sneaking up on enemies and shooting an arrow up through their head and sticking them to the ceiling, or shooting one to a tree for dinosaurs to come eat. Bow was the single best part of that game because it worked like it did.

    For me, one of the most satisfying guns is the Thundergun from CoD: Black Ops Zombies.

    Knowing that Kdin did it on purpose just to piss off Ray makes it even funnier.
