Life-size 3D-printed BFG 9000 from Doom

Well you can’t have one.

Bethesda only commissioned one life-size, 3D-printed BFG 9000 – created by MyMiniFactory, with original 3D models from the new Doom provided by id Software to create the most accurate representation – to give away in a contest.

But lord, that is one Big Fucking Gun (9000).

The life-size, 3D-printed BFG 9000 weighs over 16 kg! It’s a metre long! 45 cm high! 45 cm wide! It’s made of 70 3D-printed pieces! It took over a thousand hours of printer runtime! They ran multiple printers round-the-clock for a month! Wooo! Big things! Swearing! Metric system!

Sorry. We’re overstimulated.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
