K'nexecutioner 2.0 - "Cyclone" Answered

EDIT: Cyclone's instructable is complete.

https://www.instructables.com/id/E43XRBSF2ZL52WN/

It works in the same way as the K'nexecutioner, but is much better designed.

- More power - safely uses double the rubber bands of each barrel as the first K'nexecutioner

- One-handed Uzi configuration inspired by the Perfect Dark weapon "Cyclone" (I am using two in the video)

- Can use any size rod but holds onto (won't drop) blue rods. (firing all grey rods in the video)

I have doubts that anyone at all built my K'nexecutioner, so I'm hoping that this one, smaller, is more possible. If you have the parts to build TWIN cyclones, though, you won't regret it!

Hoo-ah! Pictures! And a new video!

They gently hold the ammo in place. As far as I know, the K'nexecutioner was the first to use this.

Yes but that's completely different. I'm pretty sure I invented this method of tucking a rod into another to hold it in place, unless someone can show me where else it's been used.

Wow! I loved the K'nexecutioner and I love this! I did build the K'nexecutioner (my cat hates me now) and I'll definately build this. However, I marvel at the insane amount of grey connectors. I improvised with the barrels on the other gun, but I think I can live with this.

The K'nexecutioner, if you did it exactly as I did, used 8 grey connecters on each of 42 barrels. It's time-consuming to go back and alter these belts and I'm not sure whether they could be improved, but each barrel of Cyclone (and each gun has 19 barrels) uses 11. For the ammo belts alone... K'nexecutioner used 336 dark grey connectors and 84 black chain-links Twin Cyclones take 418 dark grey connectors and 114 black chain-links (and considerably more spacers)

Well you could just use the ammo belt by itself and scroll your finger all the way down each trigger. xD (which is actually insanely effective)

Each cyclone uses 12 medium red gears. But actually, not all of them are necessary. It could still work with only 6.

I tried it, and there's a possibility of de-railing. Also, it's already going to be a complicated Instructable. (I'm even showing how to use the classic K'nex motor with the red battery box). I would seriously say have 12 medium-size gears. (old-school config actually requires 11 O.o)

the firing pins have empty space to speed up in before they strike their projectiles, instead of slowly pushing them out, which acconts for a further boost of power there. People are going to look at it and say it's rediculous huge.
