Aren’t we lucky that when we are plowing through goblins or the living dead in our favorite video game we have a plethora of weapons to choose from to kill the enemy. Have you ever stopped to think though how one character could carry 6 different axes, 9 swords, 2 rifles, 4 pistols, a rocket launcher, 12 grenades, a crowbar, and enough ammunition to bring the world to an end.
Hopefully you have never cared enough about such trivial things to waste brain power on it. Apparently though, it bugs some people, it bugs them enough to do actual math. Vsauce3 has calculated how much video game characters are carrying and has offered his thoughts on how that burden works.
The really lesson to learn. Lift with your legs.
