View Full Version : Ideas for Cool RWBY Weapons

2016-03-01, 04:46 PM
So I'm running a RWBY themed tabletop.

I need more ideas for cool weapons with which to equip NPC's

For those who are not familiar with RWBY the weaponry is primarily made by combining medieval weapons, random everyday objects, firearms, and misselenious junk, into shapeshifting weapons systems for which the rule of cool vastly surpasses any need for practicality. Some examples that have appeared in the show include

Blundebus axe
Grenade Launching pole hammer
Sniper Rifle Scythe
sword that turns into a rifle
dagger uzies
A trumpet
Coffe thermos flamethrower
minigun purse

unfortunately, beyond some of the things shown in the show, and a few new ideas I came up with, I don't really have much to equip the NPC's with. If anyone has ideas of cool/crazy weapon designs to hand out within this setting, I'd apreciate it.

A disc launcher that shoots seeker-shurikens - converts to a shield.

A energy crossbow - converts to a pair of handaxes.

A railgun - converts to a mace.

If nothing else you could try https://en.shindanmaker.com/418123 it generates a random weapon combination.

Robot arms that transform into different weapons. Guns, grappling hooks, and Greivous-style arm-splitting for quad daggers.

A weaponized shield that turns into a saw, and opens up to reveal shotguns pointing out from the face.

A hammer that transforms into a cannon, but can fire to speed up it's swings.

Articulated electrified whip.

Swords with detachable remote boomerang blades.

Dust-powered lightsaber, with different elemental effects depending on dust type.

Basically anything from Bloodborne, if you can disguise it enough to hide copyright infringement.
Likewise with some monster-hunter weapons, actually.

A massive sword, that is filled with several small swords like a Matryoshka doll.
Rocket hammer
Gun-lance, that is also a drill
Chainsaw-sword that also has a whip mode.
Suit of armour that can wrap around opponents and become a blender.
A Urumi: No additions needed, a belt that is also a sword is nuts enough.
A Chainsaw-Flawmethrower (chamethrawmer) that is also a guitar.

A gun that shoots swords.

A telescopic pike/spear that has a sniper rifle on the other end. Also telescopic.

A knife/pistol

A claw/crossbow

A bag with with pebbles and little clumps of dust you just throw at people.

A sling/whip

A variety of Grenades

A Jetpack and a horned helmet
