7.use the parts an build thees
8.add the six gray or yellow rods on

Step 6: Putin the Rubber Bands On

Picture of Putin the Rubber Bands On

rubber bands~~

1. if you can loop them through the red front connector then tying the end so the knot cant go through this works best if the rubber band is broken
2. you could put it on the blue rods in the front that dosn't work to well though, unless you tape the rods in or glue witch I don't recommend. Taping would be ok
3. you should have all ready put on the rubber band on the triggers

Loading and firein~~
pic two
to fire put your hand in the back and push the trigger forward obviously you can't push it backwards lol
now that thats done~~
now be a very bodacious bounty hunter and kill some space pirates.

i saw this in the wii section, i was really hoping it was some kind of cool metroid wii zapper type thing where the controller goes in it, oh well

csampo jr. (author)2011-07-29

yeah! how do you put the rubber bands on?

Duct Tape Dude (author)2009-07-30

You know, Im kinda dissapointed in this. All the Halo fans have really cool DIY fiberglass armor, yet all us Metroid fans are so lazy that we will only make this knex stuff. We need to be better than the Halo freaks! Someone get out There and make some good quality Samus armor! (I would but I dont know how)

seriously look at thes things Halo fans are making!

roflord (author)Duct Tape Dude2010-10-16

o.O old comment
but anyways
im working on sorta a lego arm cannon RBG (rubber band gun)
but all ive done is some uncomfortable square shaped cannon
so if you know where i can find some tips on making it plz let me know and ill maybe post the instructable if i dont run outta bricks (happens ALOT in southamerica Dx)

lol sorry. It just goes to show that the halo armor is just so much simpler than Samus's witch makes it lame.

oh well it was worth a try.

killinater (author)2010-10-01

PS. why are you apologizing about your sisters butt, I'm not he he.

I am having trouble with the trigger could you help?

mettaurlover (author)2010-02-06

I wonder... can this take my super missile type ammo?

yeah if it's not any wider than a blue rod and any taller.

Yeah... it's almost exactly that size. Basically IAC cannon ammo without the steroids.

master_of_instructables (author)2009-07-07

coool i need it more powerful like to kill all these cats because they wake me at 6:00 am!!!

No! Animal cruelty is a bad thing!

supah4x0r (author)2009-05-23

That gun is actually from Alien VS Predator, the hunters shoulder-mounted guns. Check for yourself, I am right.

Yeah you're definitely right because I made this gun OFF of a video game case that says "metroid prime" right on the front.

haha, he agrees with me

narutokid201 (author)supah4x0r2009-08-24

you do relize metroid prime came before avp, right

supah4x0r (author)narutokid2012009-09-30

yes i know metroid was first but avp gun looks more closely related visually

knexman45 (author)2009-11-10

I am getting metroid prime trilogy and I love the game

Str1k3r (author)2009-10-02

Just incase anyone had any troubles, #4 is a different view of # 1, and #2 a different view of # 3.

Took me like 5 mins to figure this out. Besides that amazing gun!
