The 10 most rage-inducing weapons in multiplayer history

Video game weapons piss us off. It’s inevitable, really. Gamers are extremely prideful and there’s just no way we will ever admit that someone is better at something than we are. This presents an interesting problem when we are “killed” in a multiplayer game. We begin to blame a multitude of different things such as lag, the controllers, or the cheating bastard on the other team who was probably hacking anyway. But, in my experience, I’ve found myself lashing out at something different: the weapons in the games themselves. Whether they have the ability to kill in one shot, cause a huge explosion, or are simply impossible to avoid, certain weapons can elicit anger in gamers like nothing else.
