Duke Nukem 3D's Shrinker is Top 10

The January 2006 issue of GamePro magazine is out, and one of their articles is "The Most Kick-Ass First Person Shooter Weapons Ever". Several legendary games are covered in this article, including Halo 1/2, Doom 2, Half Life 2, and of course Duke Nukem 3D. Duke's Shrinker weapon didn't win the contest , but it did place fifth (Halo's Pistol won - Huh ??). Here's what Gamepro had to say about it..

What other gun lets you shrink opponents down to rodent-size, only to be squashed under your might boot? Talk about cutting an enemy down toi size. But there's one key defense: You can counteract the effects by gulping a bottle of steroids. Hey. The Duke isn't exactly known for his subtelty.

Additionally in the article, they have a list of weapons submitted by folks on the Gamepro forums, and someone complained that the article didn't mention a weapon from Shadow Warrior, that being the sticky bombs. Thanks to Angel998 from the Gamepro forums for remebering them! :)

If you want to see the complete list of the top 10 FPS weapons, head out to your newsstand today and look for the January 2006 issue of Gamepro.
