IYO: What is the coolest weapon in any FPS?

I personally would have to say DOOM's BFG 9000.

I'm a big fan of the Penetrator in Fear. They renamed it in FEAR 2, but it's the same basic thing. Pneumatic rifle that fires a 10mm stake. Though the railgun/particle accelerator is also damn nice.

The XM8 in assorted MMS games gets a shoutout for being my favorite real-life rifle. And the Scar in Crysis, for being based on the XM8.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Cerebral bore is up there, but I'm going for the original Excalibat
If you want to go realistic guns I really, really like RFB for some reason. It's just a cool concept. Love the AN-94 and VSS too

If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

Some of the weapons from Perfect Dark comes to mind.

Dragon - assault rifle that you can throw away as a proximity mine
Laptop gun - assault rifle that can turn into an auto-turret, which you can place on the ground or walls
Farsight - lets you see and shoot through anything

I really liked the railway rifle in Fallout3 or whatever it was called. The one that shoots those large nails and can stick people/bodyparts on the walls.

Also from more realistic point, the M60 in BF3 is nice, Love to play HC and slap a bipod on it and get some pretty neat killstreaks. Or foregrip+laser sight and going full rambomode in Close quarters.
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

All really good suggestions so far. I think I'll add the original painkiller to the list.

Spinning blade, can be shot while spinning and creates a laser beam between the gun and projectile which can be returned at any time for another go. Just badass.
