Guild Wars




Design-a-Weapon Contest - Winners

The world of Guild Wars Factions will be filled with many new weapons and items. And some of these were directly conceived and inspired by our players themselves. In November and December of 2005, we invited Guild Wars players to submit their design concepts for weapons for the upcoming campaign of Guild Wars. (You can read the contest rules here.) From the more than 1,000 entries, the Guild Wars Team selected 8 winners and approximately 20 honorable mentions. The winning entries – displayed below – will be present in Guild Wars Factions at release. In addition, due to the high quality of so many of the entries, we will be incorporating many of the honorable mentions into Guild Wars and Guild Wars Factions in the months following release of the second campaign. We'll post about the new weapon additions on the news page, and will be sure to add more images here to show the increasing number of cool new weapons, as they were conceived by Guild Wars players.
