Bored of ‘re­al­is­tic’ game guns, 2014 saw the sci-fi weapons locker re­open. Des­tiny’s zingy fu­sion ri­fles de­serve a men­tion, as does Ad­vanced War­fare’s Tac-19 en­ergy shot­gun. The hon­our goes to Ti­tan­fall’s Smart Pis­tol, which doesn’t take the crown so much as blow it up by au­tolock­ing onto its ev­ery jewel. For all the fuss over Titans, Res­pawn’s best trick was turn­ing the hum­ble sidearm into a great pri­mary.
