Army of Two weapon contest results are surprising

EA Montreal's weapon design contest for Army of Two: The 40th Day has finally come to a close, and the results are in. The two winning entries are Angryjoeshow1's "AS-KR1 'The Ass Kicker' Rifle" and Uberblargh's "Sniper Launcher."

Both weapons can be seen here in concept form as well as in the full game next year. It's worth mentioning that they are going to be exclusive to those who have Army of Two save data on their hard drive. Sounds like reason enough for a rental of the first game.

Our tipster Michael notes that the second creation, the "Sniper Launcher," was made possible by 4Chan's Weapons board. He pointed out to us some of the gun's finer points, saying "aside from the fact that there's a paintball hopper that shoots 'grenade balls,' everything is backwards -- even the suppressor ..."

All I can say is bravo, gentlemen. Congrats on getting your creations into The 40th Day.

[Thanks, Michael]
