Wii Gun




I been searching around for a good Wii gun but allot that you can buy are expensive and the ones you can make look odd. So I made a template you can cut out and if you know how to work with adobe suit you could also color it in the colors or with the graphics you want.

Just go to this site and download the pdf file in the post.Just go to this site and download the pdf file in the post.

Step 1: Download the Pdf and Print It Out

Download the pdf , edit pdf and print it out. Then get the the materials you want to use.

Edit the PDF in Illustrator with the colors or graphics that you want. Also you could make it look even more like a real gun. Also print the grip of the gun few times out so you get the best size for you or the kids.

Print it out on normal paper.

Past it and a cardboard and cut it out. Best is to use cereal boxes because those cardboard got a big flat surface compared to other packaging and also it is totally free. It cheaper than to buy a big sheet of cardboard.

You could also laminate the printed sheet so it is water resistant but then you don't have to past it on a piece of cardboard because laminated sheets make it strong inof.

I paste it on acrylate sheet and then remove the printed sheet.

Don't forget to use a empty pen to follow the fold lines so it is easier to fold.

Step 2: Cut and Paste

Now cut everything out and past it together. Cut the holes carefully out there are also holes for the straps and the nunchuck plug.

When everything is pasted make holes for the elastic bands with a needle and make the holes slightly bigger with a pen. Then cut 2 elastic band and put them through the holes. First put the Wii mote in it so you know how long the elastic bands needs to be. Don't make it too tight because the bands might snap make then just hold the mote with not too much tension

You could also do it the easy way and make the elastic band wrap around the outside of the gun but this would make it look band. The elastic band on my version are on the inside. Or you could try to glue the elastic bands.

And now you are done to play any shooting game with the Wii

    Hmmm, many ideas for the "wii gun" concept to dodge the 25$ zapper, mine - I gutted a nerf gun (shotgun) and attached the trigger to the wiimote trigger VOILA, wii-shotty, worked great for Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles (the nunchuck sat in a hole in the gun - conveniently placed, the hole couldn't be replicated in any other gun/scenario)

    Awesome job, it looks great. And I agree with brettbarth, you should show pictures of you building it, that would be great. And in the first step, you repeated the link twice. Except the second time, it isn't a link.

    A nice idea and template, but you should spread out the instructions and show pictures of you building it so it is more understandable.
