Is your favorite weapon still in Worms?

Worms fans, take a long look at the above image. What you see is the definitive selection of the weapons available in the Xbox Live Arcade version of Team17's Worms. As we've noted in the past, several weapons are missing, including our beloved Holy Hand Grenade. Our friends at XBLArcade have compiled a list of all the weapons and tools pictured above. Take a gander at that list and tell us what your favorite weapon is. If that weapon isn't featured in the list, feel free to express your feral rage. Frankly, we've been waiting for Worms so long that our rage devolved long ago into mild irritation. Where that irritation resides, we cannot say, but our doctor assures us that "it ain't pretty."

1. Well I see the Sheep, but what about the Super sheep?

Also no raging bulls? or old ladies?

And the super banana bomb?

Jet pack? I don't remeber that as a weapon, yet i haven't played worms in years so yea maybe it was in the game.

Sad that some of my favorite weapons aren't in it, but that won't stop me from buying it. :)

Is it 4 players? or more? Because I remeber on pc you could just take turns and have 8 people play one pc.

4. NOOOOOOO!!!! Where's my Holy Hand Grenade, Super Sheep, and Super Banana Bomb!!! AND THE AIRSTRIKES?!

Posted at 4:59PM on Mar 2nd 2007 by Justin Richeson

5. Well sheep, kamikaze and banana bomb are all in there so I'll be kicking it old school. I never really played much beyond the original though, and I still think that's the best one.

6. I like this weapon selection, because they got rid of the over-powered ones and left the more strategic ones. Sure, using the Holy Hand Grenade was fun and all, but entirely unnecessary. I prefer a more strategic Worms, so this makes me happy.

7. No super aqua sheep, all you need is the ninja rope to have fun with worms though.

Posted at 5:48PM on Mar 2nd 2007 by BowserUSC

8. Yeah I'm old school Worms too so I'm happy.

Ninja rope and uppercut all the way!

10. I think the only thing I'm gonna miss is the baseball bat. I just had a special love for smacking an enemy "out of the park".

11. What i want to know is, if you can use only one controller to play 4 players offline. Someone who can tell me?

12. Haven't you figured it out? Next month... download the "Holy Hand Grenade" add on for only 150 points!

13. @11

Yeah, that is the one I'll be missing the most as whenever you knocked anyone "out of the park", it play the crazy baseball jingle... Ah, memories.

14. No Concrete Donkey? Weak.

Posted at 8:47PM on Mar 2nd 2007 by EnfantTerrible

15. Holy hand grenade pl0x

What kind of douche takes out the best (read: funniest) weapon in the game.

Posted at 10:02PM on Mar 2nd 2007 by Azerael

16. So much missing :-( This is terrible team 17. GARBAGE. Holy crap - you can figure that one out. Lots are missing such as the napalm strike, mortar grenade!!!, the blowtorch to bury(totally essential weapon to go through the land and strategy), the fire napalm bomb, the axe, flamethrower, baseball bat, the bungee and parachute, the freeze, mad cow, magic bullet, mail strike, donkey, mine strike and essentially the ming vase, crazy lady. Its so stripped. WTF

17. Well, this version is basicaly the same as the PSP version. And i own that, so i've played with the weapons. I can say that this is the "Worms Lite", none of the obscure or interesting weapons are in it...and that disapoints me. I doubt i'll get it, as i have the PSP version, but it does look nice in HD...

Posted at 6:05AM on Mar 3rd 2007 by James Elliott

18. The blowtorch is still there, but I dont think I see teleport

Posted at 6:08AM on Mar 3rd 2007 by Neil Finnegan

19. I wish the holy hand grenade was in there, but i'm super glad that the banana bomb and sheep are still in. Now all we need is the super banana bomb!
