The other day, I talked a bit about a new NERF gun that shoot balls at up to 70mph. I admit there is something poetic about being able to shoot an opponent in the balls with a ball, but I still prefer darts.
You have to love The Slingshot Channel’s Joerg Sprave. He comes up with all kinds of crazy DIY weaponry. This time around he’s created a fully-automatic crossbow. This has been a dream of many a weapon loving geek and now it actually exists.
This Q-tip crossbow will allow you to beat the ear war drums and wage war on your friends’ and coworkers’ earwax from a safe distance. You could potentially deafen someone or clean their ears; it could go either way, but it’s what a friend does.
Every time I watch The Walking Dead, I end up thinking about what would be the best weapons to fight a zombie horde. I think Daryl has the best weapon with the crossbow. It’s quiet, can shoot a reasonably long distance, and the bolts are reusable.
If you need a new piece of steampunk weaponry, check this out. It’s an awesome streampunk Nerf crossbow made by Gabe Genway. The next time you organize a victorian big game hunt take note. If you make one half as good as Gabe, you will be the steampunk king.
If you just can’t get enough of Link’s Crossbow Training for the Wii, have I got an accessory for you. Sure the hour-long game already comes inside the package with Nintendo’s Wii Zapper, but that’s not really a crossbow, is it?
