Red Faction: Guerrilla Ostrich Hammer isn’t real, should be

You know what animal is awesome? The ostrich. Now imagine one as a hammer that you can use to take out the supports of structures and crush enemies. Are you picturing it?

Yeah, it’s great, isn’t it? The folks at Volition is having a little April Fools’ fun, releasing this video of the team being forced to work on a new weapon for Red Faction: Guerrilla — the Ostrich Hammer. Inspired by NeoGAF forum Photoshops of early in-game photos, the Ostrich Hammer may very well be the greatest piece of equipment in modern videogames. Portal gun, move the f**k over!

There’s a highly entertaining video after the jump, including roundtable discussions of the weapon in question. “Technical Fowl!”
