When it comes to bringing fiction to life, no one does it better than mad inventor YouTuber Colin Furze. We have seen him make Wolverine's claws as well as wrist-mounted flame throwers.

Now he has built a real Junkrat RIP-tire weapon from Overwatch. The weapon was made at the request of some viewers which are big fans of the game.

And Furze did not disappoint. He started with a tire and put a chainsaw engine in it.

He cut and retrofitted the chainsaw engine to fit perfectly in the tire. He also fitted it with a remote control to control where it heads.

In the end, Furze took the tire out for a test run and watched it run over some grass. The question remains, can it behave like a weapon?

Luckily for all, that's a question Furze does not answer doing little more than watching the tire ride around. What do you think of this DIY project? A little bit of fun or a dangerous endeavour?
