Any idea how to make weapons
Topic by magiver 11 years ago | last reply 11 years ago
I am making my own hidden blade(using a letter opener), and my grandpa told me that if the 'bladed' or sharpened part is under 4", it is not considered a weapon. I am wondering if this is true. I don't plan on using this as a weapon, i am just wondering.

This forum is solely meant for Halo weapons. This means that if anyone has any pics of Halo weapons made from Knex, talk about Halo weapons made from Knex, and especially instructables of Halo Weapons made from Knex are only allowed on this forum. I can't stop ppl from posting anything other than what was mentioned, but I do ask that you keep it to a minimum. To start things off, this is a Needler that I made just for looks. (IT DOES NOT SHOOT ANYTHING!!!!) The last image is the front.

I would love to see a good spear for fishing and a sheild I have not seen many sheilds. If my message body is bad don't judge me i don't really know what to say this is my first time posting something like this and excuse my bad grammar please. Also I'm new here thats why I have not posted any instructables yet.

Ok, here's another random thread that asks a simple question. What is your favorite knex gun on the site? My personal favorite is oodalumps' first semi-auto. The one that uses like 20 pieces. It's small, REALLY semi auto, parts efficient, and gets about 10-15 feet in range with a super pathetic band. Now there's got to be some brains behind that project! And it's all around fun to use!!!

We have all at one time built a weapon out of a pen. There are plenty of Instructables under office supplies that cover booby traps, launchers, and even siege weapons. But some are repeated. Which are the best? Which need more? You decide.

OK, I have been watching Predator, AVP, & AVP-R, & I was thinking: wouldn't it be cool if someone made some of the Predators' weapons out of Knex? So, here is what I'm gonna do. First, if at least 1 person replies to this forum and agrees with the idea OR posts an instructable for any Predator weapons, then I will create a group just for the Predator weapons, kinda like the Knex Halo Weapons Group that I made. I would really like to see that shuriken that the Predator uses. Anyways, have fun. "You are one ugly...." (Screams like the Predator)

Popsci has an awesome compilation of some ridiculous weapons developed by the military. Some of them are old and discontinued, like the Gay bomb (yes, they were considering developing a bomb that turns you gay). And others that are pretty cutting edge, like the railgun that fires a 7 pound shell at 7 times the speed of sound and some remote controlled cyborg spy moths.Here's a link, check it out:Worlds Spookiest Weaponsvia: hack-a-day

I think that there should be more Weapons from games such as gears of war and Bioshock. I tried to make a Lancer, With a motor for the chainsaw. But I ended up making a totally different single shot. Here are some guns to make: Torque Bow Lancer Boomshot Sniper Hammer of Dawn and maybe some more

May I ask what qualifications you posess? When you say you "know the way of all the weapons and how to make them in under 10 mins" you are lying. Yes they can be made badly form odd found materials throughout the home, but to make for examble a ninja-to bokken or yari spear at best will take days.

I think we should see more large knex weapons (rocket launchers, turrets, large caliber machine guns (I know perfect duck made one but if you have that many knex WOW and to make 2 WWWOOOWWW)etc.) yeah that probably confused a lot of you im getting confused.?_? P.S.sorry

I was hoping to pimp out my bike with James Bond esque weapons. An example would be a way to deploy oil, tacks, smoke, or water out the back of the bike. Rockets wouldn't be so bad either. Mines or flame thrower would be great. Try mounting the control box on the handle bars. I do have basic Oxy-acetylene setup that is good for all around jobs. I also have black powder and other chemicals like KNO3. Please leave a picture below of the project with details, plans, etc. etc. I know there are a lot of bright minds out there who would find this fun and challenging project tailor-made for them.

I remember reading some time ago about metal spikes that were dropped from planes in one of the major wars(Korean, Vietnam, something like that). I think they were about a foot long maybe, and they were mean as anti-infantry, seeing as they could pierce through helmets easily. The annoying thing about this is that I can't even remember if this is a real or fictional weapon.
Question by revelae 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
I recently made a wooden sword, but i made it out of a large, cylindrical stick. the sawing was tedious, and the cut wasn't as straight as i desired. is there an easier way, not using a cicular or table saw, to cut it? (and no, "cut straighter" isn't the answer i'm looking for.)
Question by orangewolf22 9 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
I have for a few years now made my own home-made weapons knives, axes, bows and arrows, and the like. I had the thought recently about creating an instructables series on how to make all of these by hand. My question is how many of you out there would like to see something like this? Please leave a comment below just saying that you would. Or if you have a suggestion, question, or would like to send me a project of yours comment that too. thanks guys, pbman123

I have a private airsoft war coming up and I have an idea of using an airsoft sensor fuzed weapon like the cbu-97 but replace the bomblets with bbs and my son likes military stuff so I want to use the same asfw (airsoft sensor fuzed weapon) as a model for him.
Topic by Iwantbigboom 7 years ago
I was looking at the Uncyclopedia article called ''Weapons that don't exist, but should''. I was thinking if any of you guys can think of new ones that are not in the article.It could be any thing from suicide sheep to landmines that explode into attack dogs.

We should come up with a list of halo weapons that have not been invented yet...Such as a good SMG, or a Beam Rifle, or a good assault rifle...the list goes on. Also, if any one already has one of these topics/threads, I did not see it, so I started this one.

These Fallout 3 weapons by Ryan Palser are sweet. The attention to detail is fantastic and the whole project is awe-inspiring. Check out the Flickr set for many more shots of the props and the build process. A3-21 Plasma Rifle via MAKE

Here are my other Halo weapons, made from cardboard and elmers/hot glue.I have an instructable coming soon but if anybody is really interested, here's the basic way of making these. Start out with the thickest cardboard you can find. Foam core board will also work. Cut out the basic shape with scissors or a pocketknife, retrace it, glue it together, and add details like blades, sights, and barrels. see the originals https://www.instructables.com/community/Cardboard-Halo-Weapons/?comments=all

Well I built this one in a couple hours, i tried making a reliable Oodammo assault weapon that would use a minimum of pieces, because I am starting to run out, and I need a good assault weapon. It uses a slightly modified version of s0lekill3er's Oodammo Shotbow's magazine, so the mag is horizontal,I tried making it vertical, but it wouldn't work with the amount of ammo and the style I wanted in it. It gets decent range, I got it to shoot Oodammo about 25-30 feet, and it is very accurate. The magazine is removable, it isn't all that practical, but it will come off in a few seconds. The standard magazine capacity is 15, but that can we made bigger or smaller by replacing a few rods. Any criticism is appreciated and wanted, as long as it is constructive, I just tried making a small assault weapon, using Oodammo as a primary form of ammunition, and without using any black rods. The stock was thrown together rather quickly, and is only there for the firing pin guide

I've observed that the majority of people think range (and reliability though this seems to be taken way too seriously) wins wars outdoors. So what would you choose for a weapon if it were indoors with a few walls and corners, tables and other cover, and probably the largest room being no larger than 20x20 meters? Just curious. I was thinking that for this reason, I'd like to come up with a shotgun. I have an idea floating in my head if anyone wants to hear it as I can't build it for the obvious usual reasons.

It's winter and snow is everywhere (well where I live there is) People are sledding and making snow angels. And of course my favorite part- Snowball fights. Snow in ball form whizzing thru the air towards people. Me loving to build stuff and loving to improve it to, I wanted to make something that could throw snowballs better than any person. I have an idea for a couple launchers and cannons but I want to see other people's ideas. So post anything, a launcher, a cannon, a catapult, a chucker. Anything that can accompany someone in a snowball fight. So people POST.

If you've followed my 'ible Whittle a Staff / Walking Stick, you can convert that walking stick into a awesome looking "medieval marshal arts bludgeon"! Head over to my blog to check out what I've done: Walking Stick Bludgeon If you're not using it for decoration, fending off a bear, or fighting ninjas, you've added some nice grip for when you are going for a hike!

Hello to anyone who follows me. Yes I am still alive. Now the reason I am posting this is because I feel like I need to give back to the community I have been using/involved with for years now. Not the craft community but the Knex community here. Many of them have moved on from Knex since starting college and so have I. Mostly do to the lack of space and already messy room. So in order to give back I have come up with a better more interesting method. Instead of using Oblivitus's method of making the Knex guns in a CAD program I will instead be giving you the plans and basic instructions to make weapons/props inspired by Nonleathalbychoice. This being said unlike the Knex guns these items are going to be less accessible, more difficult, and dangerous. To do these things it will help to have a computer with Solidworks 2014 on it. Later I will post PDFs of the cutting plans in order to reach a wider audience. That being said some of the projects were and will be inspired by scrap metal I found and will be costly and wasteful to replicate. However I believe that the raw materials for 4 of the projects came in at under $100 total. So still cheaper than many of the larger Knex guns. Also I probably wont be posting these things as step by step instructions since most of these items are made by just cutting out sheet/bar metal. Any advanced instructions will be noted. The time frame for these instructions is going to be very slow due to college. Expect maybe 1 a month if even that. I will try to inform you of changes and fixes as soon as they become apparent to me. Also I am first writing this after only an hour of sleep. So if any of you spot grammatical errors please point them out to me.

Iv'e shoot Paintballs, Airsoft BB's, BB's, Marbles, Fishing Weights, Arrows, Marshmallows, Grapes, Sand, Rocks, Water Balloons, and Nerf Darts! I love this Carbine!!! Right now i'm working on a mod for it where you have a fishing reel on he side of it and you can shoot your line out of the Carbine instead of having to cast, and your line goes really far! Please tell me what you think about this instructable, and what can I do to improve the Carbine. PVC Compressed Air Carbine
