How to Make a Full Auto Airsoft Minigun [Halo Inspired Mobile Turret]

video How to Make a Full Auto Airsoft Minigun [Halo Inspired Mobile Turret]
This is a type of cloud airsoft gun - named so because of how the pellets are blown around the reservoir before being fired out the barrel. Since there is nothing mechanical to get in the way of the workings of this gun the rate of fire is extremely high, an estimated 50 rounds per second. It would make a great airsoft turret to be mounted on the defensive wall of a home base.

The price of materials is just over $50 assuming the builder already has PVC primer and cement.

What do you think about putting on a guard in the front, just like the Mobile Turrent in halo with maybe card board, plywood, or 1/5 in. Tin plate cut exactly like the guard in Halo?

Sure, it wouldn't make any difference in how it works. That would look pretty cool

What is the FPS
waynes39 months ago

Hi, I saw most of your videos on youtube and was wondering if you could make an 'ible on how to make a better "Magazine" which could maybe(I really don't know) incorporate a one-way valve or something that feeds the bullets more efficiently i.e. a more guaranteed feed,because the mine dry fires quite a lot, also how long does yours last pressure wise?

What brand of 2 inch end cap is it? The end caps at my local Lowe's all have a curve in them and can't be glued together.

going to try and make a cqb mp5 using this type of propulsion. by the way what is the average fps?

yeah he is

hey I want to make two of these and turn them both sideways and connect them both to make a mounted, two-barreled, gun for my airsoft coarse that I am building. Is it possible to do or will it have some issues?
This is cool I made one!

i recently made a airsoft SVD style rifle by kinda crossing your flamethrower and the mini gun. it has a 5 gallon air tank in a backpack but uses the same "cloud" system as your mini gun. i am using a 12v air horn valve hooked up to a momentary push button as the trigger.
Sir, I would just like to say, I praise you as a god.

cool maybe I can make an assault rifle using the same principles but try to incorporate a L.A.W. in there too.

im working on making a pair of these with my friend. Ill be making it a little more "high end" by incorporating it into a synthetic SKS pistol grip stock and using the backpack reservoir from your bottle machine gun. he's making his the same way, only with a wooden tommy gun stock from a local airsoft store. we will be sure to post pictures and maybe a video when theyre done!

best thing EVER!!!!!! this is so awesome! is there a way to make it have more bbs and can you burst fire it or does it have to be held down the entire time?

for some reason the reply button doesn't work
---Thanks a lot! Your instructables are the best! they explain everything so I can understand it really well.

I was going to make this gun with my dad and we were wondering if you could make the bb reservoir out of 2" PVC but still have the barrel out of 1.25 PVC so it can hold more bbs.
NightHawkInLight (author)  rower-112 years ago
yes that would be fine. Also you may want to check out my other instructable on a similar subject here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-an-Airsoft-Machine-Gun-from-a-Soda-Bottle/
i made this and sometimes it dosnt work like it will blow the air out but not the bbs how do you fix this

Here is a link to to a basic concept that could allow lower budget, or just little access to parts, airsofters to take their imagination and take a baser concept and turn it into a skirmishable airsoft gun.

Where do you find the 6mm ID x 3' aluminum tube and how expensive is it?

how much fps does it have
hunter11253 years ago
Im thinking of making a cross between your flamethrower and this, by putting the resevoir in a backpack and having a minigun like this instead of a waterbottle with a tube in it.
i was thinking the same thing ! :)
