    The Eyelander for the Demoman is just so out of place yet so entertaining... my favorite weapon in an FPS...

    I agree with the Lightsaber choice. I'd easily pay $60 (current push for PC game prices) for a new Jedi Knight game designed for the PC.

    Actually there was a weapon like this in one of the pretty bad (IMHO), James Bond titles. Cant remember which one right now. ...it was "Nightfire"
    The pen shot out a dart that put out any player instantly. Most fun in MP mode. The pen release had a delay or the dart was ultra unrealistically slow, it was a little tricky to use, and great to own with at the Japanese MP level:

    cant find image of the darn pen...

    i know its WoW nerdy but seeing all those for the first time back when i was an uber nerd was pretty cool.

    Although, in terms of actual kill potential, original Halo pistol cannot be fucked with.

    Samus' upgraded cannon from the end of Super Metroid. Arguably one of the most game-changing weapons from any game ;)

    I was going to list another weapon but then saw your post and remembered how much fun the flak was.
    So yeah for me the flak cannon.

    There was a mech type game for Atari Jaguar, you could shoot these giant cruise missiles and then pilot the missile first person, it was awesome.

    The Tau Cannon from Half Life.. Wind it up by holding right click, shoot a wall, and you obliterate anyone within that room. Those were some fun times.

    Banana Bomb (ninja rope 'herding' FTW) :)
    I would pick a fully upgraded ship in Xenon 2 but that doesn't really count as one weapon.

    My favorite is still the rail gun from Quake 3. Just a simple, pure, tool of murder.

    My second favorite is the Cerebral Bore from Turok 2.

    Honorable mention goes to the Railway Rifle in Fallout 3, for the simple pleasure it gives me to just run around and plug people with railroad ties and pin thier carcasses against the concrete. It makes a funny sound too.

    It's close for me between the, BFG (Doom), Crystal gravity gun (HL2), and mini-nukes (Fallout 3). I think I'd have to choose the crystal gravity gun though. :D

    Some of my favorites came from HalfLife. Using the cross-bow for the first time in HL:DM was truly awesome.. TF sniper was hands down my favorite gun of choice in Team Fortress, the sentry kicked ass too.

    I think the Alien in both AvPI/II was my favorite weapon of all time… Game over man GAME OVER..

    And of course the LightSaber from any JediNight game.

    Another vote for the Super Shotgun in Doom II. There hasn't been any shotgun that replicates the utterly manly feel of that beast. I love the way it sounds.
