Way before man could speak coherent sentences like we do today (well, like some of us can), weapons were already part of life. From crude wooden clubs to stronger stone to more complex contraptions – weapons were the tools that accompanied the “fight” part of man’s “flee or fight” reaction.
For sci-fi fans, weapons are some of the most important elements as well. I’d say that human/alien backstories and technology in general are still more focal elements, no sci-fi story is complete without weapons. If humanoids were able to use weapons, how much more the people of the future?
Whether you’re a hardcore Star Wars fans who unfriended people on Facebook for spoilers, or you like it old school – proton pack FTW!, you’ll find a wide range of some of the best sci-fi weapons below.
The cool thing about this list is that, more than simply listing the weapons and showing how the look, the amount of energy they use to destroy their targets is also indicated. Science, b#tch!
