Size Matters! Contest

Size Matters! Contest
Counter-Strike (ANY)
Aug 29 2015
Contest Over View Winners
You have 40 days to create an oversized, ridiculously over-powered gun to replace any weapon in any Counter-Strike game.

Who cares about Stopping power when you have Whopping power. In 1922, German gun enthusiast Ralf Eckart built a hip firing 87mm howitzer. Upon firing he was thrown fifteen feet back into a brick wall and died of internal injuries. In 1967, Buster Lewis, an ex Smith and Wesson engineer, built a .50 caliber 6 shooter and was knocked unconscious by the recoil. In 1988, Yuri Mstislav, received third degree burns after firing 4 kalashnikovs duct-taped together. In 2013, David Smith burnt down his college dorm after firing a 3D-printed M134 minigun. Let us continue this brave tradition!
