Gravity gun - Half life 2

The master minds behind half life 2, the popular video game, have taken the weapons available and with a nice use of physics created the Gravity gun.

Early on in the game this weapons power is truly limited but is still a nice change from the usual shoot em up video game weapons and a truly unique gun. Later on the true and full power of the weapon is released and it becomes an awesome toy.

  • Actual name: Zero point energy field manipulator
  • Gun in game was used for moving of hazardous material and heavy lifting
  • Two trigger functions: Primary trigger releases a small amount of energy towards a targeted object or person/alien. Secondary trigger is used to pull objects in and hold them with a magnetic like force until the user decides to release.
  • My favorite use of the gravity gun is picking up round saw blades, like in the picture below and hurling it at the enemy usually destroying anything in its path

  • When close to an enemy the small burst of energy can have lethal effects as seen in the picture below.
  • Many avid video gamers have claimed the gravity gun is what makes half life two so special and make it stand out from other similar games

Below: A funny mock up home made version of the gravity gun. Not sure why it is so massive but funny to see none the less.
