The video above shows some animation created by developer 4A games for a new weapon being integrated into their 2013 release Metro; Last Light.
The difference with this piece of DLC is that it was designed as part of a competition run by GamePlanet.co.nz. The winner was Alexandre Bannwarth, a 1st year design student at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
As the name of the gun suggests it was created by using spare parts from a bike. The premise that the people who live in the Metro are scavengers and are able to adapt anything they find in the name of defense make the design even more ingenious.
The Multi Barreled Bicycle Shotgun appears in the latest DLC pack for Metro: Last Light, the aptly named ‘Developer Pack’, available to download now.
For the full story on how Alexandre’s design became reality, including his own design notes and work-in-progress images taken from 4A’s development process, visit GamePlanet.co.nz.

Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. has unveiled its covers and DLC content for the eagerly-awaited Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2014 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
As KONAMI is the exclusive holder of the UEFA Champions League competition, the game's global packaging will highlight Pro Evolution Soccer 2014's replication of the competition, rather than concentrating on players. PES embodies the aspirations, skill and determination that shine through in Europe's premier club competition, and the new packshot uses the globally recognised branding of the tournament.
In addition to releasing the UEFA Champions League packshot, KONAMI has also released its Latin American covers for PES 2014, showcasing the players and leagues that make up some of the most exciting soccer squads in the world.
KONAMI has also announced DLC elements for the new game, in addition to a number of pre-order elements. Fans who pre-order Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 from certain retailers will be given DLC codes to add classic Latin American and European kits to the main game. These include famed sides such as AC Milan (1989-90), Manchester United (1998-99), Santos (1968), Colo Colo (1992) and Boca Juniors (1997). Additional digital pre-order DLC will add current third kits for teams such as Manchester United, Inter Milan and Juventus. Roster updates, new kit elements and additional DLC will also be regularly available during Pro Evolution Soccer 2014's lifespan.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 marks a new beginning for the popular series, with its new FOX engine allowing for the most comprehensive advance in the PES franchise since its inception. For years, the PES Productions Team has looked at how matches ebb and flow to develop a new approach to football. As a result, PES 2014 will use Kojima Production's renowned Fox Engine at its core. It has six central tenets: M.A.S.S., TrueBall Tech, Heart, PES ID, Team Play and Core. They govern everything from the way the player receives and controls the ball, the physicality of play, and the 'feel' of match-day: the rush of euphoria or crushing lows that experiencing an important game can bring.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 will be available at retail stores throughout North, Central and South America and nationwide beginning Sept. 24, 2013.
