We won't know how Neill Blomkamp's Alien movie will pan out until 2018, but one thing we can be sure of is that his movie will feature badass weaponry.
And one fan favorite weapon that is likely to make an appearance again (perhaps just as a cameo) is the Pulse Rifle from Aliens. The above video has been making the rounds online since last year, but in light of the upcoming sequel we think it's a good time to revisit it. You can find more details and pictures of the gun below.
