Plasma weapons

Tools theme

Includes plasma weapons of any kind.

This is for all weapons that claim to use plasma as the primary damaging element, regardless of involved realism.

Most of these are far from realistic depictions of what plasma weapons would be in reality (in terms of physics terminology anyway) as plasma is extremely hot gas and therefore would either be projected in similar fashion to flamethrowers, or in containers that break on impact and somehow release the plasma, the latter being less likely to happen in reality even if it was possible (the container would not have the ever popular puffy glow either). Plasma however has other meanings than just the one used in physics and could theoretically be used for even more things than it already is, so it's a sort of generic throwaway word that sounds cool and sciency.

The first Plasma weapons video game was released in 1990.

id Software, Bethesda Softworks and Electronic Arts published most of these games.
