Half Life Inspired Gravity Gun




Inspired by both Valve’s Half Life series and Volpin (Harrison Krix) real life replica; this is my take on the gravity gun.  This gun was never meant to be a spot on replica but rather an interpretation. The prop is made out of PVC, Foam, parts of old airsoft guns, spare electronic parts and about 200 LED lights powered by a 12 volt battery inside the core of the gun.  I put the NECA Portal gun in this video as a scale reference.

The prop was made for my girlfriend who wanted to go as Alyx Vance last Halloween from the upcoming Half Life 3. I decided to give it a go as my first serious undertaking building a prop weapon. It was a lot of fun to put together.

Anyway I hope you enjoy my take on the Half Life weapon of choice.
