Introduction: The Tornado 480 Command V2

Picture of The Tornado 480 Command V2

Check my H.A.W.C Version 10.0 too!

This is my first ever: 16-shot, preload-every-shot, moderate range minigun!
It's one of my sweetest looking guns because it really looks like an actual minigun!
The only negative is that the reload system takes a very long time to well.. reload, duh!
The range is about 45 ft with good quality rubberbands that are double-folded.

Weight: 1.02 kg
Length: 71 cm

-16 shots
-pretty strong
-two handles
-awesome looks
-16 shots per 5 seconds

-the shooting top is a bit flimsy
-long reload time

You likey?
So go build it!

They are the same shape as a blue motor.

Skreetsha (author)danbaha2011-02-28

Lot of torque?

danbaha (author)2011-02-21

Is a green motor strong enough?

Skreetsha (author)danbaha2011-02-27

Dunno, what do green ones look like?

dansdoc (author)2010-12-30

Do you think i could use the grey motor on the knex rubberband machine gun???
i mean the one that only says knex!

Skreetsha (author)dansdoc2010-12-30

No, grey motor ain't strong enough. Sorry bruv

dansdoc (author)Skreetsha2011-01-01

only motor i've have got...i've got time to waste i may do it anyway no offense,bruv.

Skreetsha (author)dansdoc2011-01-02

Lol, none taken, whatever it was :P

lukeg36c (author)2009-01-23

hoi ken je me nog van die knex motor viccie als je dit leest schrijf snel wat terug kun je ook een traditioneel motortje gebruiken zoals zo een met draad je weet wel en met rood gewoon zo standaard ding ik denk dat het ongeveer de zelfde afmetingen zijn

Skreetsha (author)lukeg36c2009-01-23

Lijkt me van wel, maar ik weet het niet zeker.

English please.

I'm sorry, i thought i was talking to a fellow dutch person! But sure, i'll translate it: I think so, but i'm not sure. Thats all i said.

J Moneyman (author)Skreetsha2009-11-11

lol, that's a lot of words for just sayin i think so, but im not sure.

Skreetsha (author)J Moneyman2009-11-16

Only three words, lol.
You guys in England, Amewrica wherever, can't top the epic shortness difference in this:

Same sentence, different language.

In English:
I would like to have some fish and chips please.

In Dutch:
Een patatje met vis, alstublieft.

Five words less :O
OH MY GAWD!!!1!!1!

bighead5454 (author)Skreetsha2010-07-19

i need to learn dutch is it hard?

Skreetsha (author)bighead54542010-07-27

Only the 'G' here is far from what the American 'G' sounds like.

J Moneyman (author)Skreetsha2009-11-19

...k... i'm from america BIZNITCH!!! (like the word? i got it from Dane Cooke! :D)

You weren't, It just annoys me a little when they talk in a different language.

i have to talk in a different language too at the moment .(but then again, i understand the English language).

Sorry, I just have a habit of being annoying.

damn right XD

KnexFreek (author)The Jamalam2009-09-25

no i am the one with the annoying habit

no u dont i do

coleslaw3 (author)Skreetsha2009-04-10


Skreetsha (author)coleslaw32009-04-12

Thanks, man. That really means a lot to me. Have fun buildin'!

he doesn'thave to lol

D!@# me!

english please.

pimmy65 (author)Skreetsha2009-05-17

hee ben je ook nederlands?

~Aeronous~ (author)2010-04-30

 it doesnt look anything like a minigun. either way, 5.

mettaurlover (author)~Aeronous~2010-07-19

It does, actually. Not a very advanced one, but it does. This is about as close as you're going to get with K'nex guns that don't use a chain belt, and those use an external firing box.

~Aeronous~ (author)mettaurlover2010-07-19

Its actually a gatling gun. Either way, the only minigun I've seen is the one in Terminator: Salvation. All those war movies with the huge long barrels. You are saying this is a primitive minigun?

mettaurlover (author)~Aeronous~2010-07-20

Not really. This is as realistic you'll get with a k'nex gun that fires out of the rotating barrels, except for the fact that it isn't mounted. A minigun would powder your bones if you tried to fire it while holding it like in Terminator.

~Aeronous~ (author)mettaurlover2010-07-20

Yeah, but the terminator's bones are made of steel.

ooglie_booglie (author)2009-09-01

3* because its combat safe it was lethal it would be 4

NO K'nex gun that is legal is lethal.

altair ibn la ahad (author)2010-03-31

pie i like pie

altair ibn la ahad (author)2010-03-31

awesome gun viccie made a smaller version

Dirtyboyy (author)2009-06-06

ziet er trouwesn goed uit ;) hoe ver schiet ie ? 4*

Skreetsha (author)Dirtyboyy2009-06-10

Niet overdreven ver maar wel behoorlijk voor een full-auto. Iets van 12, 13 meter.

travw (author)Skreetsha2009-06-24

Were you saying that is is fully auto and that the range is 12-13 meters?
Sorta creeps me out when I can't understand other people's conversations.

KnexFreek (author)travw2009-09-25

i likes using small text and CAPS LOCK

smattman22 (author)KnexFreek2010-02-06


KnexFreek (author)smattman222010-02-06


Skreetsha (author)travw2009-06-25

Yep, thats exactly what i said. Lol, use google translate if i speak Dutch, then you'll kinda know what i'm talking 'bout to another Dutch person.

101man (author)Skreetsha2009-06-27

im half dutch

Skreetsha (author)101man2009-06-27

Really? Then why do you speak English? En als je dit niet kan lezen ben, jij zowieso geen Hollander.

101man (author)Skreetsha2009-06-28

i was born in england but my dads dutch

travw (author)Skreetsha2009-06-25

Coooooooooool... The only reason I guessed it that I saw "full auto" between een and lets. And "12, 13 meter." at the end.
