One Shots: Drop. Your. Sword.


“It’s possible, pig, I might be bluffing. It’s conceivable, you miserable, vomitous mass, that I’m only lying here because I lack the strength to stand. But, then again… perhaps I have the strength after all. DROP… YOUR… SWORD!”

Can’t imagine why this screenshot of Secret World Legends from Winterskorn has me thinking of The Princess Bride. It’s inconceivable. Also, that sword doesn’t look like it can cut very well, just saying!

Many of you took up last week’s challenge to share some pics of your character “dinging” a new level. I was particularly intrigued by Zulika Mi-Nam’s documentation of a rather momentous occasion in Asheron’s Call.

“Hitting the original max of level 126 in Asheron’s Call used to set off a big set of fireworks and became a guild event for those that reached it,” he posted.

Rafael12104 makes slinging two pistols look drop-dead gorgeous: “I’m back in Blade and Soul just in time for the Gunslinger drop and I couldn’t be happier. So much fun. So prepare yourself for another round of BnS Cap-spam. Here is a little taste.

“My new slinger, Haliee, looks more like a ‘loli’ much to the chagrin of some. However, she is anything but that as anyone who has had an unfortunate encounter with her can attest. The girl just kick’s ass and chews bubble gum.”

If you want to take some incredible action shots and want to pause the action, look no further than Warframe.

CapnLan brings us this dynamo in motion: “As I posted in WRUP, Hydroid Prime has quickly become one of my top favorite frames. Have some pics of him being a badass with his new guns and his Kraken. ‘I do what I want ’cause a pirate is free.'”

You are a pirate!

Make no mistake, Star Citizen is crushing it in the visual department.

“Even though the scenes in Star Citizen’s Arena Commander map Broken Moon isn’t particularly demanding at all on hardware of any sort, it’s rather aesthetically pleasing in 21:9,” Deekay Plus writes. “With their much-hyped camera system actually getting wider or perhaps putting the camera more forward in 21:9 than in 16:9, in the latter I can see the sides of my helmet where as in 21:9 less of the helmet is visible and therefore more visible game space in spite of the helmet. I’m almost tempted to grind out one of the heavy armor space suits to see if their more limited view has similar characteristics.”

Let’s get another round of screenshots going! This week’s challenge is “prison break!” Share pictures of in-game prisons, jails, cells, or any interesting place of captivity — and let us know how you survived such a harrowing experience!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!
