Sci-Rifle Countdown: Part 19
Halo: Combat Evolved introduced the video game world to a lot of new ideas, and one of them was the chattering assault rifle loved (and hated) by millions of fans. Doing less damage per shot than, well...pretty much any other weapon in the game, the Assault Rifle places low for being nigh useless in the actual game, but hits the list for being a part of what might be the best shooter series ever, and for looking mighty fine doing it.
Later iterations of the gun became more useful, but this is the one that started it all.
