Top 10 Sci-Fi Weapons

Heres a sci-fi weapons list from WatchMojo.com.  Most of these rayguns originate from science fiction movies. The familiar ray gun is in a class of weapons called energy weapons. Its fun watching these babies slugging it out in a good old fashioned firefight. So whats the difference between  phaser laser and a Starfleet type 2 phaser? A lot apparently. Generally speaking phasers emit a laser beam which can be set to stun and disintegration modes. Other factors to consider are size, range and intensity of the beam.

Theres a whole plethora of sci-fi weapons from Phasers to Disruptors including the Ferengi Energy Whip, Lightsaber and Varon T Disruptor and they all have something in common. They all make deadly energy sounds!

I must confess Kivas Fajo's illegal Varon T Disruptor from Star Trek's (TNG episode 'The Most Toys') tops my list for pure evil. This phaser doesn't just kill, disintegrate, stun or even wound its victims.

Instead try imagining five seconds of excruciating agony as Fajo's death ray slowly disintegrates your flesh from the inside out. You might say the Varon-T Disruptor was designed by a pretty warped mind and you'd be right.






Which one of these sci-fi weapons makes your favorite energy sound? As usual... Star Wars is sitting pretty at No 1. Now why is that I wonder?

Give me a phaser over a light saber any day.
The eXistenZ bone gun - twisted inclusion on the list.
The Mojo top ten clips are great, aren't they?

Kudos on including the Point of View Gun! That truly can be a depressing gun.

Maurice Mitchell said...

The Point of View Gun was hilarious in HGTTG, but I'd go for a Phased Plasma Rile. Sweet list and I wish you a smokin' morning.

awesome... i would love to have any one of those... just not that one from Men In Black... :)

Star Trek definitely deserves first place in the Top Guns category. Live long and prosper

It's probably totally missing the point of the exercise to say The Force, isn't it? Q's omnipotence would probably trump it anyway.

Tony Laplume said...

I second David's kudos for including the devastating Point of View gun.

Susan Kane said...

I'd like a Cricket from Men in Black. It would fit in my purse.

Still waiting to see some of these weapons come into being--or maybe they already are.
