Take Our "Name This Weapon" Quiz!

A typical day here sees 8 to 10 high-pressure combat situations.
A typical day here sees 8 to 10 high-pressure combat situations.

The subject of this week's quiz is videogame melee weapons, and given that you may be facing these weapons head-on in a high-pressure combat situation (see image for reference), we here at The Escapist thought that we could best serve the community at large by administering a visual, rather than textual, test. By completing our quiz you will find you have the confidence and ability to successfully identify any and all close-quarters weapon(s) you may be brutalized/maimed/killed with - and really, is there any greater gift than that special sense of immediately-premortem smugness? We'd like to think not.

To ease the identification process, our crack team of artists* have been working around the clock to provide you with a clear, easy, and efficient method of determining which weapon to identify at any given time, and in a testament to modern technology, the system is integrated directly into each image. We think you'll find it quite groundbreaking.

As always, you'll have as long as you like to take the quiz, and can retake it until you get that 100%, but your cumulative time will affect your position on the leaderboard and your value to the esteemed field of videogame weapon recognition and analysis (VWR&A).

I believe the whip is cool whip and the buster sword is excessively large, why don't those give correct answers?

when i completed the quizz, i saw the top 25 scores, but not my own score? why can't I see how I did?

Try bringing up the quiz main page again and hit take the quiz. It will jump to the end, and it should give you the score.

7/10. Bad guesses on those 3, and good guesses on a couple more. Go figure.

Took me three attempts. I got everything but the whip and the Prince of Persia dagger ones on the first go. Really had no idea for either of them, so had to guess.

4th place! I know my weapons.

(stupid whip preventing me from acing it on the first try)

10 out of 10, and second overall. This has made my day :D

=D Joint second place, with some other dude.

I play far too many games... =P

why is it only about blades and swords? i took the quize and expecting grapping one of the top 10 places, and i ended up with only 2 out of 10:( i hadn't even played most of those games(except for halo and warhammer)

Took me several tries to get all of those right... had no idea what that whip was called, tho.
Also, i liked how the text that talked about the quiz was written, had a nice weird Cracked-ish style of humor.
I approve!

Fuck Yeah! Got it in one go. I am the Weapon Master!

...

...

...and that means jack shit...

There was at least one answer in there I was very tempted to pick in spite of knowing it was the wrong answer simply for the laughs.

80% awesome!

I failed at the space marine thing.
And Halo...which is also space marine.

Bah... only thing i didn't immediately recognize was the one with "Salsamaker", never seen or heard of the game...

I scored 100%, with 10 of 10 correct on The Escapist's Name This Weapon Quiz!.

Only took me a hundred million tries. ...okay only 6, but DAMN!!

I scored 60%, with 6 of 10 correct on The Escapist's Name This Weapon Quiz!.

Pretty good, considering I haven't played most of the games.

Got them all, nice quiz, Fun.

Currently ranked: 51st: Bah I vacillated too long at the whip. Thing is, it's had a lot of names. :/

How many times when I was playing the last game did I compare that sword to the one before it?

I'll tell you what it was via a pm so as not to hand out any cheats/spoilers.

got 50% on this one and don't really feel like trying to re-guess all of them I was unsure on

Wow... 8/10. Not bad considering I guessed for most of those (of course I would know about Soul Edge, being a fighting game fan).

I've never even seen half those games, and I haven't played most of the others, since they seemed to be mostly console games.

I can't believe that took me four tries. :(

I got 6/10 right but that wasn't too bad for guessing either. :D

Most of these games I don't think I've ever seen before this quiz though. D:

100% wow I thought I would get 70% since I guessed at the ones I didn't know. But then again I just did look at the weapon and pick a name that closely looks like it.

Meh. 6 out of 10. Not bad considering I've only played a few of those games.

7/10. I guessed on everyone one of them except for the two I actually knew. Good for me.

3/10 on first try, I only got right the three I knew, guessed the others and got it wrong.

EDIT: Also I had hope the arthas cliche would be avoided and something like Hand of Ragnaros or Atiesh would show up.

10/10

First try! Ha!

I have to admit, I guessed one time.
And the Energy Sword had a different name in the german version of Halo :/

lol I suck...7/10 my first try, but I guessed half of them =.=
