The plasma cutter from the Dead Space series is one of the most badass weapons to grace video games. Who doesn’t want the power of a lightsaber in the form of a ranged weapon?  If you bought the collector’s edition of Dead Space 2 you received a nifty plasma cutter replica, which is cool and all, but you’ve probably noticed it doesn’t quite hack off limbs like you’d expect. Thankfully, some psycho genius out there has remedied that, and shows us how to modify the replica and outfit it with real lasers. You might not be melting flesh with it, but you can use the heat to pop a balloon or light a match—and hey, that’s a start, right? One to grow on! [via Joystick Division
