Pneumatic Overwatch Doomfist Guantlet Made IRL With 2,600 Pounds Of Punching Force

This is an episode of Make It Real from Youtube channel the Hacksmith in which the crew build a real life version of Doomfist's gauntlet from Overwatch. It weighs 45 pounds and allegedly packs 2,600 pounds of pneumatic punching force, which they use to destroy a bunch of stuff. Although, to me it seems like it's ability to break things is mostly due to it weighing 45 pounds and not because of its pneumatic punching force (which is all lost on the wearer's arm recoiling). But what do I know? I'm just a man who can punch through a brick wall easier than the Kool-Aid man can run through one. *flexing* "You're built like a coat hanger." Yeah well you're built like the first little pig's house. "Out of straw?" I meant the second little pig's house. "Out of sticks?" Maybe the sixth pig? Whichever one built with shit.

Keep going for the video, but the actual punching starts at 8:15.

Thanks to K Diddie, who punches with over 9,000 pounds of force and has never left an enemy with teeth.

    Your mom likes it when I bring this glove to bed.

    Who would have guessed Titty McNipplefondler likes high mileage hoes. Whatever floats your boat.

    ... uhm, nope. just because you have a cylinder that will extend fully with 2600 pounds of force in it does not mean you can throw a 2600 pound punch.if you think this works, then put the fist directly against a 2x4 and engage... guess what your arm is going to retract and that 2x4 isn't going to break

    go back to school and brush up on your physics fellas.

    Arm-tari 2600. Should have come with a woodgrain option.

    tl;dw - any additional force from pneumatic effect is essentially wasted on rubbery arms and elbows.

  • GeneralDisorder

    If only there was a race of atomic supermen that could better wield it.

  • The_Wretched

    I was wondering how he was absorbing the equal and opposite reaction.

  • WhiteEagle2

    It did seem like the results would have been pretty much the same regardless of the pneumatics.
