Seen at @Make: @JohnEdgarPark’s Lucio Blaster | #Overwatch

Kudos to Jordan Ramée over at Makezine for posting our own Overwatch Prop Gun: Lucio’s Blaster life-size prop by John Edgar Park. I’m biased but what I really love about this project is seeing the ‘work-in-progress’ shots and build of the project over time, including tips, troubleshooting solutions, and on-the-fly design changes.

John Edgar Park’s latest build is a life-sized replica of Lúcio’s Sonic Amplifier, the weapon that belongs to one of Overwatch’s more popular heroes. This blaster mimics the gun’s in-game abilities to both “shoot” music and switch songs when its lights toggle between yellow and green.

Park decided to make the Sonic Amplifier after falling in love with its design. “Compared to other game guns, I knew this one could be much more faithfully and safely reproduced,” he says. “Sure, it can’t physically boop anybody off a ledge, but otherwise it closely replicates its in-game counterpart.”
