A few months ago CD Projekt Red – the development studio that created one of my favorite game franchises of all time, The Witcher – released a brand new trailer for their latest and greatest game, Cyberpunk 2077. It was awesome, you should watch it (video below), and I couldn’t possibly be more excited to play it.
Fast forward to this morning, and I wake up to discover that someone (well, a few someones) actually made a real, physical prop for the “Militech Crusher” auto-shotgun shown off in the trailer. How cool is that?
But first, the trailer…
Before we go any further, do yourself a favor and check out this Cyberpunk 2077 trailer. I’ll leave it at that, and if you’re interested in reading my ramblings about it, you can do so right here.
Awesome, right? I’m guessing you noticed the giant, bad-ass looking shotgun too, but I’ve included a photo below for reference anyway.
The Militech Crusher
Here it is, and here’s what I can tell you about it. The Militech Crusher replica was created by Volpin Props in Atlanta. It’s made out of 13 individual pieces, and took roughly 3 weeks to complete. Also, it looks amazing.
So on that note, here’s the digital version we saw from the trailer…
And here’s the super awesome looking replica that Volpin came up with…
In case you’re wondering, yes, those really are chromed 20ga rounds that you see in there.
Unlike Dr. Crusher, I have a feeling the Militech Crusher doesn’t do a whole lot of healing. No, I have a feeling she would only use this to put people of their misery.
So, I think the question on everybody’s mind is: when is someone going to turn this into a real gun? I mean, a gun of the “can actually fire” variety? If you happen to know of anyone attempting it, please leave us a comment below with more information. Really, someone just has to make this thing.
