Didn't the Germans have a crude version of this back in World War 2? I think it used mirrors.

The StG-44 Krummlauf, but it had a curved barrel.

rods from god was used in gi joe 2 and it would be insane the rod would be travelling at 24,545 miles per hour, nothing could stop it from hitting its target and would be devastating. but the one from gi joe 2 i didnt get was when he hit the cancel firing button why did it blow it up, bit over zealous when it could of just cancelled the firing seqeunce then again better to watch i guess
