They may seem cool in video games but not so much in the real world.

Some of the wildest and weirdest weapons can appear in video games, catering to our power fantasies while being fun to use. However, as cool as some may look, they’re not all meant for real life usage. In fact, some of them might outright suck when brought into the real world. Let’s take a look at 14 weapons that fall into this trap.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain – Bionic Arm

Let’s be real – the technology for propulsion systems in prosthetic arms isn’t there. Ditto for effectively shocking, exploding or teleporting someone. So while the Bionic Arm in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain would be heavy enough to hit someone in real life, it’s not going to be more effective than a gun. We could see it making an effective clubbing weapon while being sneaky but again, there are more practical and compact weapons for that. Even if you managed to translate all of its in-game functions to real-life, it would require an absurd amount of maintenance on top of better alternatives being available.
