Several innovative and truly destructive weapons have graced our theatre screens over the years, but only a few can boast of being both devastating and awesome at the same time. Weapons are without doubt supposed to serve destructive purposes against the enemy or any kind of obstruction, but when it does that and gets a ‘hmm’ or ‘mad o’, then you know its creators have done their jobs well.
That said, from whips to suits, here are our top 10 coolest weapons from movies.
Is there anything that the lightsaber cannot do? This elegant Jedi weapon is an energy sword that can cut through and blast virtually anything from doors to enemies. Using the Force, a Jedi can predict and deflect incoming blaster bolts, and reflect them.
The nunchaku is a traditional Okinawan martial arts weapon consisting of two sticks connected at one end by a short chain or rope. The iconic weapon was popularized by actor and martial artist Bruce Lee in his films, most notably his yellow nunchaku in Game of Death. Another well known wielder of the nunchaku is Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
The only thing cooler than the Batman himself is the batsuit. It has the coolest mask, coolest and most badass build, the coolest crest, and even if you’re not a fan of capes, you’ll definitely love the one on the batsuit, because it’s simply the coolest. It might not be as powerful as the iron man suit in terms of being an actual weapon, but the batsuit is loaded with an array of cool gadgets for both combat and tactical, plus it is both bullet and dog proof.
4. Iron Man suit
The ironman suit is in every sense a weapon, with state of the art gadgets, blasters, flight and many more. However, to be honest I never really thought it as cool because of how he originally put it on, it felt a little bit too much. But with the introduction of nanotech, which is used in both Spiderman and Black Panther’s suits, it became way cooler.
5. Infinity Gauntlet
Is there anything cooler or more powerful than a glove that can wipe half of the world’s population with just a single snap? I think the answer is NO! Some might argue that without the infinity stones, it is just a mere glove, but whoever manages to get all six stones can do virtually anything from teleport, mess around with time, destroy whatever, the list goes on and on. More so, it was wielded by arguably the coolest villain in all of the Marvel universe.
Thor’s Mjolnir, which can only be wielded by those who are worthy is probably the coolest weapon in comic book history. The hammer can be used to to fight and destroy enemies as well as propel the wielder into the air. The stormbreaker might have taken away a bit of shine from the Mjolnir but Captain America returned its glory when he unleashed it on Thanos in Endgame.
7. Indiana Jones’ whip
When a whip sells for 140,000 pounds at an auction, then you know it’s cool. Not only is the whip an effective weapon against enemies, it can also be used to swing across rooms, hang from trucks, or even pull women in for a kiss. There is nothing that that whip can’t do.
8. Anton Chigurh’s cattle gun
Anton Chigurh’s cattle gun is both fascinating and captivating, and to think that we only saw it used once to be convinced of its deadliness. Although the weapon can only be used at close range, you can’t take anything away from this horrifying murder apparatus. Oh, and did I mention that it is also an effective tool for opening locks.
9. Beatrix’s Hattori Hanzō Katana
Swords are cool, Beatrix’s Hattori Hanzō Katana which is capable of cutting God, is the coolest of them all. The black, yellow, and white, long and gracious slicing machine is simply the greatest samurai sword ever forged and Beatrix utilized it to its fullest devastating potential.
10. Wolverine’s retractable claws
Wolverine is blessed with enhanced strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, superhuman senses, regenerative healing factor to mention a few, but what makes him the ultimate killing machine, and his coolest attribute by far are his retractable adamantium claws. I mean, who wouldn’t want to have retractable claws? I know I would.
