USB Controlled BB Sniper Rifle

The rational part of my brain looked at this USB-powered desktop “sniper rifle” and thought, “How childish and dumb can these little launchers get?” Unfortunately, the rational part has been overruled by both the inner-child and the lizard-parts of my brain who yearn for the simultaneous cool factor and fire-supremacy within the office (without needing real gunpowder or risking actual harm like this or this desktop cannon)

Like real field artillery, the AXniper is a one-shot wonder requiring reloading after each deployment. Fortunately, ammunition is cheap as it looks to take standard 6mm plastic airsoft BBs. Range is quoted as accurate up to 8 meters (roughly 25 feet). It will take a up a bit of desk space. Everything USB states it takes up 32 x 16 x 18 centimeters.

The bb howitzer interfaces with any windows computer via a standard USB port (separate power port needed). For those curious on ballistics, AXPro has put together some handy charts for long-range calculations. Armed with this formula, one can reach out and hit man-sized targets with roughly 50% chance of hitting them at 8 meters!


Unfortunately for me, my guys read TFB on a daily basis, so the acquisition and deployment of this formidable weaponry will not come as a surprise…

For those interested in the cannon, it is expected to retail for around $100. It will come with the software, sample target, some introductory ammunition, and the ability for one to win the cubicle wars.

    Pretty cool. I would rather have one that can be controlled via Apple Watch/iPhone. Then i should shoot people while in the bathroom LOL

    • Lammo

      There’s probably an app for that (or there will be).

      • mosinman

        just an extra $25.99 of course
