A fighting chance: best video game weapons: 50-41

In most video games there are enemies or fiends we must avoid of fight... and lucky for us the developers of these games decided to bless us with weapons to fight them!

With that said, Prima Games has come up with a list of the top 50 video game weapons thus far:

50. The Laptop Gun (Perfect Dark)

It's not every day you hear someone make a request for a gun that transforms into a laptop. However, this ideal weapon is one of the best in Perfect Dark, as it carries 50 rounds in the magazine and can also be thrown onto surfaces to become a sentry gun, in case you need to make a clean getaway.

49. The Keyblade (Kingdom Hearts)

One of the most iconic weapons featured in the Kingdom Hearts series is no doubt Sora's Keyblade, a sword that resembles a large key; its name is certainly apropos. The weapon is so admired, a few die-hard fans ordered custom-made props, similar in size to how they appear in the game.

48. The Diskarmor (Rygar)

First introduced in the original arcade version of Rygar, the Diskarmor found proper use in the NES port and PS2 reboot of the series. In it, our hero uses the weapon, a spiked shield connected to a chain, to swing at enemies, while also knocking down items in the environment. With its range and strength, it's easily a tool that shouldn't be messed with.

47. The shovel (Shovel Knight)

The shovel is a typical digging tool in the eyes of most people, but with the Shovel Knight, it's a useful weapon that could save the kingdom. In Yacht Club Games' inspired 8-bit adventure, you'll use the shovel to bounce off enemies' heads, swing away at foes in front of you and even dig into piles of trash, revealing glorious treasures.

46. The air pump (Dig-Dug)

There's blowing up your enemies, and then there's literally blowing up your enemies. In Dig-Dug, your primary weapon appears to be nothing more than a bicycle pump, but it serves a greater purpose. You'll connect it to your foes and blow them up with a few well-timed pumps. Make sure you're safe when doing it, though, because you'll be left wide open when their buddies show up.
