    I love watching Jonathan try to bring some logic to otherwise illogical nonsense weapons. His smirk as he justifies an action is always great.

  3. Timothy Falcone on January 2, 2023 at 12:48 am

    Not going to lie, Junkrat’s grenade launcher reminds me a lot of a handheld pitching machine for baseball or softball.

  4. Timothy Pan on January 2, 2023 at 12:48 am

    PLEASE DO VALORANT :))

  5. Prathmesh Korade on January 2, 2023 at 12:48 am

    All these guns but hanzo comes with bow and arrow, still has more dps than gun players

  6. Frank Alcala on January 2, 2023 at 12:49 am

    i never noticed junkrats gun has a tire spinning to fling the projectiles

  7. Moloraider on January 2, 2023 at 12:50 am

    I’d love to see him reacting to some weapons from deep rock galactic

  8. Magnus MacLachlan on January 2, 2023 at 12:50 am

    Oh look, he even talks about MCCREES gun!

  9. NaCl on January 2, 2023 at 12:55 am

    We need to know if Jonathan thinks junker queen is a mommy or not

  10. Michael Hong on January 2, 2023 at 12:55 am

    Why use the OW2 defaults for all the heroes EXCEPT for soldier where they’re using a 6 year old legendary skin made specifically to look gritty and realistic that looks nothing like the default?

  11. Matěj Štemberk on January 2, 2023 at 12:56 am

    13:36 excuse me but how does roadhog deals such damage at such range

  12. Aperture On Fire Photography on January 2, 2023 at 12:58 am

    Should do one for nostalgia purposes. Time Splitters 😛 have a good selection of real and futuristic guns

  13. Weet Weet on January 2, 2023 at 12:58 am

    A Borderlands review would be highly entertaining

  14. Sunny B450 on January 2, 2023 at 1:02 am

    Titanfall would be interesting to see here.

  15. SniperX1347 on January 2, 2023 at 1:02 am

    9:00 it reminds me of a pitching machine used in baseball.

  16. Flope on January 2, 2023 at 1:02 am

    Can you get a banker to react to the games microtransaction prices please

  17. Carlos Carlsen on January 2, 2023 at 1:03 am

    I got 400 hours game time and i never noticed that Junker queens Magazine rotates 😂

  18. Spencer Fischer on January 2, 2023 at 1:06 am

    darktide please!

  19. Kaapo Aro on January 2, 2023 at 1:06 am

    Imagine if he saw Zenyattas orbs💀

  20. Faulyn Owens on January 2, 2023 at 1:09 am

    ghost shirt???

  21. Slashoom on January 2, 2023 at 1:09 am

    Why didn’t you do the most icon guns in Overwatch… Tracer’s pulse pistols.

  22. Lisa lisa Lettuce on January 2, 2023 at 1:12 am

    He has a ghost t shirt. New favourite person

  23. pee jar on January 2, 2023 at 1:13 am

    having him check out weapons from ultrakill would be pretty cool

  24. Smileattack on January 2, 2023 at 1:14 am

    Very impressed with how many real world implications this guy was able to talk about, considering Overwatch has some of the goofiest and impractical weapons of any game.

  25. Huseran Filo on January 2, 2023 at 1:14 am

    Valorant please

  26. Weevul on January 2, 2023 at 1:14 am

    wow no soujorn tracer lucio winston mei mercy diva torbjorn hammond orisa bastion

  27. squid feet on January 2, 2023 at 1:18 am

    This was really cool but it would have been also dope if he looked at ashes guns too. Still cool doe ❤

  28. Ayrond on January 2, 2023 at 1:19 am

    I’d live to see a video like this but the guy actually shoots the guns he’s showing and the room he’s in slowly becomes a disaster (the table is broken i half, chunks of the walls are missing etc.)

  29. Moxxi Miller on January 2, 2023 at 1:20 am

    The level or Respect to Mr.Ferguson for me wouldn’t allow me to even THINK to bring that game to consideration. Blizzards…

  30. Hunter on January 2, 2023 at 1:20 am

    look at basions guns

  31. Nik C on January 2, 2023 at 1:20 am

    I love that he listens to ghost

  32. MrNoName on January 2, 2023 at 1:21 am

    He should talk about Pavlov shack

  33. ProxUrAimz on January 2, 2023 at 1:21 am

    "Science fiction fantasy" those are different things😩 One is future and technology, the other is past and magic. Just because they’re both made up, doesn’t make it the same. All fiction is fictional but the setting can be drastically different😤

  34. TSNswimming on January 2, 2023 at 1:22 am

    Very unrelated but what’s that crosshair for Baptiste it looks really good

  35. Ingolf on January 2, 2023 at 1:23 am

    fun fact: one of Cassidy’s abilities is called "fan the hammer", so it’s funny he brings that up about his weapon.

  36. BKDrumming on January 2, 2023 at 1:28 am

    Ay bro has a Ghost shirt on, Jonathan 🤘🤘

  37. Asher Snyman on January 2, 2023 at 1:31 am

    So when looking at Ana’s gun he mentioned that the electric triggers are imprecise due to the feedback of an electrical button. Would Haptic feedback be able to bridge that gap? I know the tech isn’t the same, but I can’t help but think of the design of the PS5 remote and the adaptive triggers.

  38. Yuki Amijochi on January 2, 2023 at 1:32 am

    Man it bothers me that these Guns almost ALL have Skins slapped on them

  39. Vladestra on January 2, 2023 at 1:32 am

    The wire on Sombra’s gun might be connected to her ability to deal greater damage to enemies she has hacked. Not sure how it would work functionally… but that’s my assumption

  40. Wolfseption on January 2, 2023 at 1:35 am

    hey should look at enlisted its a ww2 online fps with 6 campaigns focusing on different battles with lots of classic weapons and would love to hear your thoughts about them I’m sure you will find something you haven’t covered yet love the content and cant wait to see more

  41. shugularity on January 2, 2023 at 1:35 am

    1:59 Ana’s Biotic Rifle has a kind of VSS / Steyr Scout splice thing going on imo

  42. jovi wright on January 2, 2023 at 1:37 am

    mwhahaha ghost shirt mwahahaha

  43. MrTinyface on January 2, 2023 at 1:38 am

    I really appreciate Jonathan looking at weird / goofy guns over realistic ones, and trying to understand how / if they could work, and what the designers could have been drawing from. Always excellent insight.

    As far as goofy guns go, oughta take a look at Deep Rock Galactic. Those run the gambit from fairly reasonable to outright absurd

  44. WhiteListed on January 2, 2023 at 1:39 am

    he shouldve done echo, zenyatta and kiriko

  45. Blayne Greiner on January 2, 2023 at 1:42 am

    Digging the Ghost shirt!

  46. unchartedrocks1 on January 2, 2023 at 1:44 am

    When will he analyze Ratchet & Clank weapons??? I want to see Jonathan show off his real life RYNO & call out Insomniac Games fir getting the weapon wrong XD!

  47. Jeroy Lenkins on January 2, 2023 at 1:44 am

    1:57 definitely looks like it is based on a jezail to me.

  48. Simba N on January 2, 2023 at 1:45 am

    Why are they using skins and not the original weapon.

  49. Galvenin on January 2, 2023 at 1:46 am

    Junkrat using a gun based on a toy makes sense

  50. KkindneSs2 on January 2, 2023 at 1:46 am

    Remember: Pulling a gun out of thin air is always faster than reloading
