Unusual Weapons Part 2

Used by the Mabari tribes of New Sealand. this simple-
looking, yet solid, club was built from nephrite jade.
Strangely enough, the Maori used the inch club for
jabbing and thrusting instead of swinging downward blows
in the way that most other clubs are used, To the Maori, the
mere was a very spiritual weapon- They named their mere
clubs and passed them down through generations- They even
believed that the clubs contained a maria {spiritual force) of
their own- The Maori revered their mere clubs greatly. They
were a symbol of leadership, and if any mere that was
considered important by a tribe was misplaced, great efforts
were taken by the tribe to make sure the mere was located
and returned to its respective owner.
Perhaps the most on this list, the Chinese hook swords were wielded by
the normally passive Shoalin monks of northern China. Beautifully and artistically
designed, the blades were curved into a hook shape at the end which allowed the
user to connect the blades by the tip and wield them as a single.
weapon- The crescent shaped guards were excellent at blocking blows as well as
slashing enemies who got too close. The ends of the hilts were sharpened into
daggers for stabbing at close range. These swords measured from feet from the
top of the hook to the end of the sharpened hilt. The blades saw most of their usage
from civilians, as the Chinese military did not use them in any of their armies.
The was basically a large, piece of wood, with
pieces of obsidian embedded in the sides- Since the lacked a sharp point,
it couldn' t he used as a stabbing weapon; however the jagged rows of obsidian gave
the weapon a vicious tearing power that could cut deep lacerations in the enemy. The
wood itself is heavy and strong enough to clobber opponents. thus enabling the Aztec
to capture the foe alive to be used in their famous ritual sacrifices. There have been
accounts of being able to decapitate horses, which is impressive, for a
horse' s head is a good deal thicker than that of an adult human being-
This rather overlooking, weapon was used in the arenas by the gladiators of the
ancient Roman Empire. Interestingly enough, the gladiators who wielded the scissor
in combat were also known as scissors. The metal casing at the bottom formed a long
tube that covered the gladiator’ s arm. allowing the weapon to easily block and
parry. as well as counterattack_ Made from hardened steel. the scissor measured up
to one and a half feet long- It is surprisingly' light, weighing in at an easy
pounds; this allowed the scissor to he wielded with a good amount of speed, The
scissor' s unique shape and design made it a crowd favorite.
Chinese weapon. the chu nu was basically an ancestor to the automatic rifle - it
sacrificed range and power for a quick reload time. The wooden case on the top of
the crossbow held ID crossbow bolts which fell into place when the rectangular
lever on the backwar pulled hack after firing a bolt- Cine interesting fact is that
the chu he nu last saw its use in the wars of , years after
the rise of firearms- The crossbow could fire on average a total of ID bolts within IS
seconds. Which, when compared to the reload speed of normal bows and crossbow.
is a great improvement- For added effectiveness, some of the bolts were tipped with
poison from the deadly aconite flower, also known as .

User avatar #209 to #6 - blbrian (09/04/2013) [-]
Where's this from?
User avatar #225 to #209 - skilgannon (09/04/2013) [-]
Its from the ''Avatar: The Last Airbender'' / ''Avatar: The Legend of Aang'' (dependant on your locale) series. Great series, I recommend it and its follow up series, ''The Legend of Korra''.
User avatar #233 to #225 - blbrian (09/04/2013) [-]
Hmm, I didn't watch the last airbender completely, I must have missed/forgotten this

You see this bad boy?

Hitler ain't got **** on this ************ .
Thousands of deaths in genocide?

This **** is OG weapon, dating back way back when, and if you're into that crap it's responsible for the first murder. God was like "Yo Abel is my bro." And Cain was like "Man **** you Abel" and used this thing to crush his head in with a skull.

It's called a rock, and it's been killing people since before you were born. No need for your fancy metal working or carving. The rock can meet all your bone crushing needs.
#215 to #48 - anon (09/04/2013) [-]
Technically it never says in the Bible what Cain killed Abel with.

User avatar #103 to #90 - arandomanon (09/04/2013) [-]
Prove it or shut the **** up.
User avatar #106 to #103 - zomitlu (09/04/2013) [-]
Implying I directly said this one. I saw the first one which you admitted was found on wheresmysammich.

Well done, you won an internet argument.

Seriously? Never heard of any cool weapons outside deadliest warrior?

How about the sword breaker?
King Henry's Walking stick. (A mace with three gun barrels.)
Or the Ax pistol?
Spider shot?

***** I got book after book of this **** .
User avatar #153 to #26 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
You have books about weird weapons?
User avatar #176 to #153 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]

I have books on weapons that have appeared throughout history. And the others I remember from History channel.
User avatar #177 to #176 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
That **** is radical.
User avatar #178 to #177 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
Ever heard of the belt gun?
Its France's favorite gun.
Its a gun hidden in a belt buckle that is meant to fire when you put your hands up which is illegal but who the **** is going to stop them from doing it.
User avatar #179 to #178 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
That is some ruthless **** right there.
I like it.
User avatar #180 to #179 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
There is the spider shot which is basically a cannon ball that slits apart as four blades spin around. It wasn't used often because despite being awesome wasn't as effective.
User avatar #181 to #180 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
Then we need to enhance it and make it effective.
User avatar #186 to #181 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
The V3 cannon is far cooler. It is basically a giant cannon that fires a projectile then has explosion after explosion accelerate the projectile down.
It was built by Hitler in order to strike London and end the war.
User avatar #189 to #186 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
That sounds terrifyingly badass.
User avatar #191 to #189 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
It was abandoned after the allies got close to the sole functioning gun built, taken apart to keep it out of the hands of the allies.
User avatar #193 to #191 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
The question is. Could it have actually wrecked London as hard as it was supposed to?
User avatar #194 to #193 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
Mostly likely not. They would have kept hitting population centers to ruin morale which did nothing rather than hitting military bases.
User avatar #182 to #181 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
(It was used back when ships still had masts. the chain shot was far more effective.
User avatar #184 to #182 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
Then we need giant versions with lasers instead of blades.
User avatar #188 to #184 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
Lazes right not are not powerful enough and even if they were they are a logistical nightmare, you think a drone bomb is expensive, think about a two lazes in a modern artillery shell.

And finally if you aren't careful you will kill your entire army
User avatar #190 to #188 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (09/04/2013) [-]
Damn it.
User avatar #192 to #190 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
Again chain shot is far better.
#203 to #26 - saxong (09/04/2013) [-]
Seriously? Never heard of any cool weapons outside of your books?

That's how stupid you sound. Not everyone has seen deadliest warrior, just like not everyone has access to your plethora of books. Good on you for knowing something but there are some of us to whom this is new information!
User avatar #216 to #203 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
I actually have,

as I stated below I remember some from history channel.
User avatar #113 to #26 - starzero (09/04/2013) [-]

No Photoshop skill.

You just have to stack picture one above another with some text explaining what it is. Pretty sure you could do it in paint and nobody would notice. Don't use Comic sans.
User avatar #116 to #115 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]
Why not comic san?
User avatar #117 to #116 - starzero (09/04/2013) [-]
Just don't.
User avatar #119 to #117 - undeadwill (09/04/2013) [-]

That's not a mere club.

It's a mere club.
#43 to #7 - punnyjunky (09/04/2013) [-]
A mere made of pounamu (greenstone/jade) had to be designed quite simply, but the patu (the much more widely used hardwood equivalent of a mere) were much more intricately designed, and did not resemble a shoehorn.
#72 - adamthealmighty (09/04/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure this is the most unusual weapon there is...

They should have obsidian drop the same way glowstone does. Every obsidian block drop 2-6 shards which can be crafted 4 shards to a block, or used in a sword
