    Do this weapons do anything besides being cheesy? A wrist gun would be awesome if it certainly shoot something.

    Kind of disappointing, so many of these look like toys painted over ang glued with useless stuff on them, they look cool, yes, but could be so much more! Nerf guns and squirt guns remodelled just don`t hit it for me

    steampunk and futute don`t fit... steampunk is BEFORE our time when they really used steam powered engines to do everything ( like driving cars and so on) .. yes they use steam today too like to power generators in nuclear plants and in many other places.. but the "steam age" was before our time..

    I always love the marriage of antique styling and futuristic technology.

    These all make me think of Firefly... which then makes me sad.

    Actually Steampunk and future DO fit, its just called Cyberpunk not Steampunk, and typically involves some sort of dystopian future.

    Steampunk = Castle in the Sky, The Prestige, League of Extraordinary Gents

    Cyberpunk = Matrix, 12 Monkeys, Blade Runner

    I`m not a stickler for these things, but if the term is available, might as well use it! Great post though. Love me some weapons!

    I love steampunk anything.

    I once set up a DnD campaign with a Steampunk/Ancient Egyptian empire as a major player. Great fun.

    That made me miss one of my favorite steampunk shows called "The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne". It lasted all of one season, but it was way cool and way fun, plus the writers knew how to tell a story.

    Is it just me that found the way the whole thing was written a little unbearable to read? I just get the image of some irritating 13 year old trying to sound in the know and mystical or something.

    Pretty cool "weapons" considering they`re pretty much all just modded Super Soakers. And since when could guns just fire lasers and particles etc just if you imagine hard enough?

    If there was one with "Acme" engraved on the side, it would have made my day.

    1) This is Steampunk.

    2) Here is an example:

    3) My favourite Steampunk Comic.

    4) A Cyberpunk Link for anyone interested in Steampunks uglier cousin. ;)

    Attention:
    Painting a super-soaker gold and gluing on a few gears does not make it steampunk.
