This 'Fallout 4' flaming sword can set the world on fire

It's Fallout 4 week. That means it's safe to say that when gamers aren't busy logging more than 4.5 million hours in Bethesda's latest instalment, they're probably watching all of the impressive game-related videos on YouTube. The team over at Linus Tech Tips has already managed to fit a high-end gaming PC inside a Mini Nuke, but what about building a real-life Fallout 4 weapon? If you've played Fallout 3 or made it far enough into the latest game (hint: it's located in the Saugus Ironworks), then you may have come across the Shishkebab: a flaming sword crafted from motorcycle parts and a katana. Make built one, and it's awesome.

After finding the weapon's concept art online, the Make team built the Shishkebab using a bottle of butane, a katana, a motorcycle brake handle and an ignition system from a barbecue grill. The end result is a weapon that not only looks and operates like the real (virtual) thing, but also something that would likely see you end up in a jail cell if you took it out in public. Make details the whole build across a series of videos, but if you do decide to take the project on, just make sure you do so safely.
