First up is reader Wolfger, who escaped by the skin of his teeth in Guild Wars 2. "Here's a shot of Brewer Foster getting up in the face of one of the game's favorite loot piñatas, the champion boar in Queensdale. It catches the beast reeling from a blast as our hero is facing it down with a... slingshot?"
Mmm... anyone want a ham dinner? Either way, scoot closer to your monitor and prepare to have your eyeballs blown from the awesome images to come in this week's edition of One Shots!
"This lich is behind the events of the Blood Moon," Takofanes writes. "He even goes as far as to control the zombified versions of heroes who perished in the Battle of Detroit all those years ago. I was pretty lucky (or unlucky) to grab this screen because this particular instance of the encounter was bugged, making the big guy untargetable."
"Here's a close-up screenshot of an Architect in RIFT's Dendrome territory," reader Bill submitted. "Players of the game will be familiar with these bugs since one of the daily quests involves killing 100 of them. Mostly they travel in roaming packs, so it's not as tough as it might sound."
"I was heading to check out a group build advertised on Twitter when I came across this building," he said. "That's a solid two or so kilometers away from me! It was late at night, so you can only barely make out the epic 13-claim city behind it!"
