Introduction: Project P.A.W.S.

May I proudly present 'Project P.A.W.S.', that is, 'Portable Armoured Weapon System'

It is my first attempt at developing my own k'nex weapon, and was the result of a week of holidays with nothing to do.

As the name suggests, they are 2 robotic arms bristling with weaponry.
the left arm is a modified k'nexecutioner 1.02 with one 30 shot belt, and weighs about 2.5 KILOS!! (that's 5 ish pounds for you yanks)
The right arm has a semi-auto 7-shot k'nex rifle with 10 shots, a Disc launcher V2 (3 shots) and a NFS sniper (only single shot), and is a lot lighter.
one annoying thing is that you need 2 people to put both arms on, because as soon as you put one arm on, you can't use that hand to attach the other.

**UPDATE**
This project has long since been scrapped, and so I won't be posting :(
I might do a v2 one day though...
*** UPDATE UPDATE*** The V2 has officially been started, and is at the 'concept' stage. Currently has eight weapons planned, and will be a single arm-mounted device. New features will include:
-     Detachable/jettisonable secondary weapon systems
-     Armour plating/shielding
-     MORE weaponry than last time :D
-     sleeker, more compact, more aesthetic design
-     awesomeness!
note all features are 'parts permitting', and no, I have not built it yet. There may be an 'Ible. MAY.

hope you enjoy :)

 You against some guy with a SRv1 think about it, and I think one of your guns are staring at me. It is a bit hard to move, reload and everything. I'd rather make the ironman suit.

Yes well this was the alpha release, so to speak. V2 will be much more compact and powerful. Think a full-arm BFG :D

All i need is about 300 green rods... Ebay time :D

 It would be nice if you could have 3 individual rotating turrests each with 18 bullets. Like 3 trs on your arm.

 That or you could of called the project: Project OverKill, or Project Capslock. 
Both mean the same thing.

i made a minigun-like thing that could easily be grafted onto this. it's non-firing but looks really cool.

dude that is great man!! You know that could be used someday in battle for example in Iraq

author
agent+harmsy made it!(author)2009-07-06

Well considering it was kinda inspired by the Mk I Iron Man suit... :P

author
Mr.+Cowboy made it!(author)2009-07-07

Yeah but still i got the basic layout in my head but i dont wanna tell...

author
mikstr2 made it!(author)2009-04-01

how do you reload the gun in battle. do you have to take it off????

author
agent+harmsy made it!(author)2009-04-07

Yeah, you do; but having access to a 30 shot machinegun, 7shot semi auto, 3 shot disk launcher AND a sniper rifle kinda balances it out:)

author
Speedmite made it!(author)2009-05-31

Thats 41 shots. Of little pieces. I go for heavy artillery. I have a cannon that goes about 150 ft, and has a good weight. Would leave a nasty bruise. Seriously put a small dent in metal but it broke the piece of ammo...... I have a grenade of knex, and then several pistols, single fire, but I can shoot through the chain mail I made and 3 index cards.

author
agent+harmsy made it!(author)2009-06-01

Yeah, but this is designed for 'fun' in a war, not to kill people! 'sides, I have my copper pipe cannon for that. :D

author
Speedmite made it!(author)2009-06-02

And I dont shoot knex guns that are that powerful at people. I just shoot them away from the house and have the people watching have that look of awe when it goes fast and keeps going.

author
Speedmite made it!(author)2009-06-02

Chain mail aint bullet-proof. Are you talking about a potato cannon? Possibly with alternative ammunition?

author
Speedmite made it!(author)2009-05-31

Light on armour..... You could possibly build holes in the sides so you could reach through...Wait.... Thats like a strait jacket for your arms. It would hurt. Then it would be easy to fight back against. Maybe a quick release to drop off the guns? 5 pounds eh? thats a 2 handed weapon. What sort of power does it give? I dont care too much for rapid or semi and auto, It needs just a few good hits. I judge in index cards. Speaking of index cards, I experimented with ammo of a marshmallow gun so it could shoot through 2 index cards, and i shot my friend in a sensitive area on guys, and he was keeled over for several long minutes. Its light ammo too. So, 2 index cards is a beast gun. So is it?

author
agent+harmsy made it!(author)2009-06-01

This was designed for maximum firepower for a single person, but with the lightest equipment, and so it is mid-powered. I had originally planned to make this into armour for the entire top half of my body, human tank style, but I barely had enough pieces (that I needed) to make this! So if you have the pieces, go ahead, but I don't, unless I do a 'remix'....

As for the quick release, I tried, but failed... epicly

Also, this wasn't really designed for practicality, it was more 'lets-see-how-much-stuff-I-can-fit-on-my-arms-at-once'

Still, it could one day have potential.

Speedmite made it!(author)2009-06-02

Ah. Ok.

author
mettaurlover made it!(author)2008-12-08

i'm working on a similar, yet less armed project myself. i'm building an iron man suit.

author
agent+harmsy made it!(author)2008-12-09

Good luck! I have somewhere round 5000-6000 pieces, but I found out you need SO MANY purple and blue 3d connectors, its really not funny! I had plans for a suit too, but just ran out of parts!

author
Speedmite made it!(author)2009-05-31

I wish I had that many.....

author
builder968 made it!(author)2009-02-21

i have about the same as you! (~5800)

author
mettaurlover made it!(author)2009-02-19

i use a different method: making the layers and connecting them together. very few blue and purple connectors are used in this method.

As I said a few comments down: Sorry! As I'm alone in my hobby of k'nex guns here in Aus, I had no-one to test/battle with, so the project got de-commissioned :(

hey man, did you survive the bush fires? I heard they were really rough

author
agent+harmsy made it!(author)2009-03-03

Well, city suburbs are kinda the last thing to go, but I have a mate in Donvale (outer suburbs), and he said that at night, they could see the red glow from the fires! It's pretty scary really.

author
Speedmite made it!(author)2009-05-31

Mate? Oh, forgot the Australia.
