Introduction: Knex Gears of War Boomshot: the Ultimate Grenade Launcher So Far.

Picture of Knex Gears of War Boomshot: the Ultimate Grenade Launcher So Far.

So, this is a Knex boomshot that I made. I made this as a present for the end of summer vacation.
It fires mykhailo's grenade. It's the same grenade except it has more white rods on it so that it can withstand the force of the firing pin and explode only when it has hit something like the ground, a person, etc. I am definitely posting an instructable for this. I will improve the drum magazine.

Pros:
It's sturdy.
It fires a large grenade.
I got 14+ feet and the shrapnel had a radius of 2-4 feet. (Don't believe me? Take a look at the last two pictures.)
It has a nice, sturdy handle.
Has a sight.
Works great.

Cons:
Right now, it does not have a trigger. I really don't think one is needed, but if enough people ask me to make a trigger, then I will before the instructable is finished.

DrWeird117 (author)FrOnTLiNe2008-12-17

WOW! I was just about to say that. Oh, well. For Gears Two: GRIND!!!

ironman69 (author)2008-07-28

Nice!

Thanks. Dude, you have to post your lancer! We need every gun from gears of war. We only need like two or three more guns.

Well here they are, we gotta try to make as many of these as possible.

I posted my torque bow.

catgod (author)ojochris2008-08-01

hammer of dawn would be interesting and the bow too

ojochris (author)catgod2008-08-02

indeed.

We need a tourquebow, a revolver thing that is really powerful in Gears, a troika,a Longshot, a burst thing, and that's it, I guess.

yes the hammer of dawn,long shot and some outer burst fire gun I forgot the name. well....there are also the side arm weapons but those don't count because we have so many pistols an this site already

knexguy (author)ironman692008-07-30

So are you back to post some things or just passing? I personally would like to see your RBG.

I CONCUR!!!

silentassasin21 (author)2008-09-22

Der Bradly (author)2008-09-17

Sweet... post it bob!

darth_tater 2k8 (author)2008-09-14

Your grenade launcher looks great, but try making it less bulky. Can you post it?

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-08-29

Ur messed up.

ojochris (author)2008-08-29

I guess so....

M5R (author)2008-08-29

I know its not a gun but someone could try and make the grenades- Locust Flash, COG flash and the other one. Also i don't see a few sidearms- hammerburst etc. If someone made a hammer of dawn that would be kl as well, if you could make the sky open up wid it i'd give you 5*. GOW is the bestt!!!

ojochris (author)2008-08-29

still confused.

ojochris (author)2008-08-28

DrWeird117 (author)2008-08-23

benboy207 (author)2008-08-02

how high does the shrapnel go into the air?

I'm not sure, probably 1-2 feet. It might be 3, but don't bet on it.

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2008-07-30

mines semi auto

you don't have a greande launcher...

yes i do but im not posting cuase it will get coped

benboy207 (author)2008-07-30

could u try to mod it so it doesnt have as many green rods and other pieces

sure, I'll try. I'll try to make a basic and expert version, the basic with less pieces and the expert with more.b

DrWeird117 (author)2008-07-30

someone make the GoW l0ngshot OR the Troika OR The Hammer of Dawn.

benboy207 (author)2008-07-30

SeMi_AuToMaTic (author)2008-07-30

dude this is awesome. 5 stars and i am begging you to post. nice work!

Thanks. I will.

knexguy (author)2008-07-30

For the fake drum, you could make it with a flip up front or back end and use it to store an extra grenade!
