When you play a shooter, do you name your weapons? I name my grenade launchers Bertha and my shotguns Helga.

Only if the game allows me to name my weapons in game, but that's not something I've seen in shooters.

No, but if I did my rifle (which there are many like, but that one is mine) is called Charlene.

Every now and then, when a video game grants me the ability to use both a scary sounding light-machine gun and a powerful shotgun (you know, as opposed to a weak-sauce shotgun...), I will name the duo "Sunny Muffin". Sunny being the LMG and Muffin the shotgun, that is.

I can't be arsed to pay for a name tag and everyone on the trading servers is a super serious dick that acts like they're trading millions on the stock market and not virtual weapons

I jokingly refer to the P-90 as the Fag-90. Some guy on Counter Strike said that because I killed him with it.

I call the 93R in BF3 the 93-Retard because you look fucking mental when you shoot it.

I could name them, but I don't see what difference that would make. A shotgun named Lucille seems pretty fitting though. Isn't there a song like that?

I don't typically keep names in my head for each weapon. If you are talking like the naming system in TF2, then yes, but for other games I don't really get that attached to them.

I like to name my loadouts in Far Cry 3 funny names.


The work, which becomes a new genre itself, will be called...

Nope, a gun is a gun. I dont see the point in naming it.

Haha, me and my friends call the P90 the P Nooby (I think we started back in CoD 4), so I suppose I should just call it the "Fag Nooby"

Only if the game allows you to put in name for the weapon like in Skyrim when you enchant something, otherwise I don't really bother to nickname them. Although I did call that mole replant stick you get from Moira in Fallout 3 "the stick of death". and kept yelling as I killed moles "Beware of my stick of death!".

If there's a feature that allows me to physically do so, then yes.
Otherwise, rarely.

I can never get my hands on a nametag in TF2. If I had a nametag and used it on a sniper, I'd probably call it "The Noscoper 9001" or something.

I do indeed name my weapons.

Every hero's sword should be named so I named my dragonbone greatsword Sugartwinkle.

Call my hatchet an axe, my M1014 a tactical shotgun, my M4A1 an M4 & my Barrett M107A1 an M107.

Well since we're also counting melee weapons apparently, I named my Krogan Warlord's biotic hammer in Mass Effect 3 multiplayer "The Klobberer".

I hope you're not seriously thinking you can get a good trade on those sites?
Tf2outpost is full of people overpricing their items and tf2tp is barely used anymore.

Well I have renamed weapons in fallout new vegas.

assault carbine to AR15
9mm pistol to Browning Hi-Power Pistol
and Minigun to Vulcan minigun

just little things to make the weapons seem that little bit cooler.

In team fortress 2 I do, My strange scattergun is call scit-scatt-ergun. And on Counter Strike I always pick the M4A1 so I call that old reliable, because it never seems to fail me.

I named my dagger in Skyrim "OPbutterknife" for obvious reasons.
