No, not really. But if you could find yourself a rocket launcher that fired giant rubber band balls, a sniper rifle that shot out spit wads and a bunch of willing mates, you could probably re-enact a few of your favourite scenes from Valve’s team-based shooter.

More pictures and a video of the band cannon in action can be found at Gizmodo Australia.
