The BFG3X is a boss killer

I'm hittin' berserk mode!

bfg2Any fan of the DOOM series of video games remembers the BFG‘s or Big Fucking Gun.  You know you wanted one, and so did Andrew.  The only difference is Andrew decided to build one, and I’m guessing you didn’t.

From the beginning of Andrew’s build, it looks like your normal prop build.  Start with a trip to home depot, grab some pvc pipes, solder a few leds, spray paint the whole thing, yadda yadda.  But then you see towards the end of the video that Andrew put some beefy wires and a grill igniter inside… oh yeah…  It’s actually a 3 chamber potato gun!  And sure, you put enough fuel in it and it will do some flame thrower tricks as well.

The lighting effects by themselves look pretty good, the flash light mod, and the home-made acrylic light tubes… I bet this would keep those damn kids off my lawn!

Be sure to watch the video after the break.

There’s more pictures over at, and Andrew promises to post a part 2 video to his project on his YouTube channel.  For now here’s the video of part 1.
