What real world weapons would you like to see the Punisher use?

#1 Posted by cody1984 (1279 posts) - - Show Bio

In the comics franks sticks to the usually m16 with a grenade launcher or an M60 sometimes an M4 with a grenade launcher.  He also uses old school uzis a few different types of pistols a shot gun and a rocket launcher (looks like an AT4).  So I was wondering if anyone has any real world weapons they would like him to use?  Barring NBC weapons since that is vast overkill and Frank shouldn't be able to get his hands on those type of weapons.  Could be specialty versions of certain weapons based on the AR family for example a     

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Personally I'd like to see frank use this shotgun.

 

  

  

 

 

As much as I'd like this thing the guy is BSing about the gun having virtually no recoil. 

 

 

 

Also I'd love see frank use the Bushmaster ACR

I'm not a weapons nut.  I'm more about the story Frank's involved in more than what instrument he's using.  I know virtually nothing about the makes or models of guns available. I don't think I've ever really clamored to see Frank use anything in particular as a weapon. When I was younger, I did buy the first few issues of Armory when they were on the shelves because I thought as a Punisher fan I needed to be knowledgeable on guns. I was wrong.

@cody1984:  That's for the writer to figure out, I just want to see him use it :)

i don't keep track of names of guns, nor do i even think about such in my daily life... why? because i'm not paranoid, nor crazy.

Not everyone who is into guns is paranoid or crazy.  I'm not that into firearms myself however I really did enjoy the show future weapons and that is why I know about these particular weapons.  I also used to be in the military and every once in a while they would talk possible replacements for the M16 and M4 since the rifle is getting old and looking to replace it with something better.

A tank...

@cody1984:
Main weapon: Heckler & Koch HK416
Backup:Double sawed off shotgun
Handguns:H&K USP45, I know frank's usual pistol is the 1911 but the USP holds 12 rounds of .45 which is frank's favored round.
I'd also give his the M249 SAW if he needs something heavier, which he use to mow down all those criminals after Nickey cavella pissed on his family's grave.

@warcorpse:

I'd probably drop the SAW for a M240B for the bigger rounds and the fact it replaced the M60 other than that I agree with your choices.

Frank needs to use metal storm.

@cody1984: What about explosives? Claymores, flashbangs?
#17 Posted by cody1984 (1279 posts) - - Show Bio

@warcorpse: 

I'd go with pretty much what he already has I'd like to see him use some napalm since that would be ideal for taking out a lot of people in a closed area as well as providing a good distraction which you would get from people running around on fire.   He does already use flashbang grenades and claymores although not often if you got some particular explosive you’d like to see please post it man, I liked your firearm choices.

#19 Posted by Morku (26 posts) - - Show Bio

I wouldn't mind seeing Frank use any of the following,
H&K USP .45 for reasons already stated.
FN SCAR-H it possess' a larger round and a decent mag capacity and would do some damage.
TDI Vector for those close quarters shoot outs.
Glock 18 for heavy firepower in a small package.
AA-12 for those heavy shoot outs and fear factor
Benelli M4 Super 90 I've always been a fan of this weapon and I think it would suit Frank.
M249 SAW Rifle I could picture Frank cutting down rows of criminals with this weapon.
Para Ordinance 1911 with 14 round mags an update of his favorite.
Milkor MGL 40mm for days when he wants to see things blow into a million pieces.
MOD Mark V CQD knife to test his knife fighting skills.
Cold Steel Espada as a back up blade.

@cody1984: Thanks, I always imagined frank using more tactical based weapons like navy seals use instead of street guns.
@Morku: Those vectors have insane rate of fire.

he needs three weapons, and only three.

The m60e3 machine gun: smaller version of the m60, easier to carry under his coat.
A pair of ka bars, so he can just cut loose every so often.
And thats it. 
Keep him away from "prefferred calibers" and all that military jargon and tactical crap. He doesnt  need the latest m4 with rail attachments to be the punisher. He stands his ground with a machine gun  and starts killing. Thats all he needs.

@MoodyKingMoron: Horrible looking guns. If you want to give him an assualt rifle, keep it simple with a first gen AK 47.

Frank can always use a .50 cal Sniper Rifle

Then a well placed shot would take him out. The M60 is an old favorite of his, yes but it's overkill. Heavy, large and most likely a hassle to reload on the fly. A pair of Ka Bars is a good choice but maybe one will do. Again, overkill.
And Castle would use whatever weapon fits the job. If he has to take someone out quietly, a good knife throw or a silenced firearm would suffice. If its the right tool for the job, Frank would use it. He's a soldier, not an inexperienced amateur.

44.Magnum A Pirate Cannon, A Nuclear Bomb, A chicken cannon (there real used to test how durable windshields on fighter jets were by shooting frozen chickens out of a cannon people got hurt bad an i heard  a couple died), Ninja stars, the Glove Gun (a glove used in the cowboy days when you punched someone it pushed at button sending a large bullet through there skull....messy.)

@Morku: who cares? hes the punisher.
i dont find anything cool in him using god knows how many different kinds of m4,  he should stick to the weapons that suit his character. and that m60 holds one hundred rounds, they fire in three or four round bursts, so thats about forty to fifty kills worth in a single belt. he can control its recoil and reload it very fast. The m60 is his weapon, has been since he was in Vietnam. As you said hes a soldier, but hes a vietnam soldier, hell use a vietnam soldiers weapon.

But he learns new tactics, yes? He has to update his armory. If he is to survive in the modern age, he must become familiar with new weapons, tactics and so on and so forth. And if he just opened fire with a large caliber weapon in three to four round bursts, aren't the odds of collateral damage significantly higher? He's a smart shooter not some gangbanger who doesn't know proper gun control.

There's a new kind of Galil that came out. It's called the Galil ACE, if the bullpups are unworkable just go with that. It's an AK-type weapon with modular features and all kinds of attachments. I thought he'd use a bullpup simply because they're effective close quarters urban combat rifles. They maintain decent range and accuracy and still have compactness. To be fair, the M4 can do the same, except the M4 is overused.

@Morku:  The weapons i named he uses commonly. He always carries a pair of combat knives. He uses the m60E3 very often. His other two weapons of choice are M1911's. No offence  to your choices, but i dont think the punisher is ever gonna use  any kind of glock. Now theres a gun that doesnt suit him. Im more interested in his character, and giving him any number of cool guns (regardless of how good they are) isnt THE punisher.

@warcorpse: its actually a browning hi power. glocks dont have external hammers. In the kingpin story, that is, i know he has one now. But only because he took it off a dead guy, otherwise he wouldnt usually use one.

A dirty bomb on Rykers Island or The Raft. Sure in comic land it might make more mutants & gamma irradiated freaks but that's up to the powers that be

A nail gun with the safety removed. Why? Well some 37,000 people in the US every year go to emergency rooms with injuries from nail guns, in Frank's hands they wouldn't make it to the emergency room
