Videogame weapons traditionally run the gamut from ridiculously awesome to … well, ridiculous. But sometimes they are just downright bizarre. Without further ado, here are some of the weirdest videogame weapons you can use.
10. Body Whip – Earthworm Jim
Earthworm Jim is a pretty odd game to begin with, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that it has some weird weapons. In this case, the weapon isn’t really a weapon at all—it’s the protagonist’s body. Earthworm Jim can quite literally whip his enemies with his own body. As it turns out, this is a pretty potent attack and does a great job at getting them out of the way. Plus, if Earthworm Jim has any kinks in his back to work out, this would do the trick without the need to visit a physical therapist.
9. The Penetrator – Saints Row: The Third
From the name of this weapon, it’s pretty self-explanatory. Yes, it is exactly what you are picturing. The Saints Row games are already pretty crazy, but this is probably the single most notorious aspect of game play. It’s literally a meter-long dildo you can swing at your enemies like a club. Whoever thought of this had a pretty awkward sense of humor … but definitely hit upon a marketable memorable detail. In fact, if you ask a random person to name a weird videogame weapon, there is a good chance this is the first weapon they’ll list.
8. Mr. Toots – Red Faction: Armageddon
Okay, if you thought the Penetrator was a bizarre weapon, you haven’t seen anything yet. In Red Faction: Armageddon, there is a weapon called “Mr. Toots” which quite literally farts at your enemies when you pull the trigger. That actually isn’t the most bizarre thing about it though. What’s really crazy is that Mr. Toots is a miniature unicorn with a rainbow-colored horn. Where’s the trigger exactly? Don’t ask me; thankfully, no one has any idea.
