Weapon Concept Art: Gunsword by RedW0lf777sg Weapon Concept Art: Gunsword by RedW0lf777sg
This is a double-edged revolver-type Gunsword, Which can be loaded with five .454 Casull rounds. The Gunsword is a fusion of a sword and a gun. That would allow swordmen to have a weapon that they can used for both melee and long-range combat, The combat styles demonstrated for Gunswords capable of projectile firing are simply alternating between ranged and melee combat with the favored style depending on the Gunsword used. There are six types of gunswords: Pistol-Type, Revolver-Type, Shotgun-Type, Machine Pistol-Type, Energy Pistol-Type and Booster-Type. Booster-Type Gunswords are mostly single edged blades and are build different from the other five gunsword types, instead of firing normal gun rounds they fire high power blank rounds or energy rounds. When the trigger is pull, the High Power blank or Energy round will shoot out like a jet through either small vents or mini jet boosters (depending on the model and manufacturer) on the dull edge of the blade. This will increase cutting power of the weapon.

(Artist's Note: This was inspired by various RPG games, Anime and Manga)

Reminds me of the Final Fantasy Gunblade, except more sophisticated.

Although I'm pretty sure that a weapon like this would not be very practical in a real-life setting, but it still looks awesome in a fictional setting nonetheless.

Well, yes, Gunblades of Final Fantasy series was half of the inspiration, but the other half was inspired by actual real gunblades, Just take a look at these images of historical weapons.  www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/im... img230.imageshack.us/img230/76... fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/i/201... firearmshistory.blogspot.com/2...

Also, yes, a weapon like this is somewhat practical, but then again most of my weapon designs were intended to be used in Manga, Anime and Video Games. Because my dream was to become an concept artist for those three medias. And because they're for fictional setting like for sci-fi fantasy themes, it's gives me more freedom to come up with many ideas for them.

Wow, I never knew that there were gunblades like that in real life. Though I remember reading somewhere from an actual weapon designer that this sort of weapon would be a bit too difficult to wield, due to the location of the handle and trigger, and how it would suffer from other problems too. It might still be somewhat effective, but would be rather difficult to wield properly, and a rifle with a bayonet would be easier to use.

 

And a conceptual artist for Manga, Anime and Video games? That sounds cool, I wish you best of luck in that profession.

I have a lot of unique ideas too, but I can never come up with purely original ones, just fandom ones, and whenever I've had a purely original idea, it sucks overall. That's why I usually stick to fandom, and I'm pursuing a different profession for my dream of a life-long career.

Well, mate it just how you design weapon to fit the needs of the weapon users. And besides I've been designing weapons and studying them since 1997. You'll would be amazed of the kind of antique and historical weapons that I've found. Including ones that you properly never heard before. Just take a look at this World War I era revolver with bayonet: www.royalarmouries.org/assets-...

Awesome weapon. I know a lot more about many types of modern-day weapons, but not as much as those era weapons, although I do know some about them. Most of my knowledge about them though, I got from watching "The Military Channel" and some of the interesting programs on it.

The Military Channel is good, but History Channel is good also. But if you really want to know about the rare and unusual weapons then it's best to looked them up in books or on the internet and Youtube.

O.K. It's either final fantasy VIII where this type of weapon was first introduced in the series or it's final fantasy XIII where the weapon can transform from sword to gun.

===

And these types of weapons have been around since the Musket gun era just take a look at this link: [link]

Ah gunblades. Found my love for them in FFVIII. Nice design with the double-edge, but of course any gunblade like-thing are completely impractical but I would still own one like this if only to hang on my wall. Can't wait to see the rest.

Yes, I understand that, but then again I never intended most of my weapon designs for real used. Most of all my designs are for either anime/manga or video games.

Still, the gunsword has a number of issues.

Namely, its too front heavy.

Yes, but that's why you only see them in anime/manga or video games. If it was for real life it would look something like these: [link]

I have no OC to used this weapon at the moment, right now. Just tell what you like about the weapon and what you don't like about it.

Hmm, well there's not much that I don't like. I was just thinking that it could be personalized for certain people or groups like an actual sword. Like ingravings.

Oh, also, all guns have attachments. Maybe you could add those. Just an idea...

RedW0lf777sg Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Mmm...Yes, that would be the case, but there would be only a few attachments for them because there can't be to many attachments or the weapon would become too heavy then it is now. And Gunswords are used primarily as a sword then anything else, the gun is secondary to it. ^_^
