It's not a gun, it's a BFG! A weapon so powerful that you'll change the game issue even if you shoot only once.

Dora the Exploder.

Yeah, you're thinking the Hispanic pre-teen whose parents let wander all over creation solving peoples' problems. And the talking map and talking backpack of course.

Nope. This is the original. The biggest gun ever made. Dora the Exploder. Technically, it was the German 80cm K(E) railway gun. It could fire a seven ton shell 23 miles.

It's companion gun (Gustav) fired on Sevastopol, and Dora was deployed to fire on Stalingrad but never did.

Details can be found on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwerer_Gustav

The counter for Dora is on the pictured counter sheet. Left side, 6th row down, 4th counter from the left. It _always_ fires from the rightmost column on the bombardment chart regardless of modifiers.

Haven't managed to use it in a game yet.

The War Sun. Think Death Star, only it's apparently harder to kill.

Major Q-9 could be considered as a BFG with legs.

I always refer the assault canon as the BFG, a BFG able to overwatch.

Nova Cannons.

BFGs in BFG. (Does the main planet killer gun have actual rules?)

Portable Nuke. It's wire guided so you can steer it and everything. Awesome.

A gnome-sized harpoon to kill the Kraken? It must be a disguised BFG.

This is an early BFG, either you destroy anything around, or it misfire in your face.
