DIY Ballista: The Roman Super Crossbow in Action [VIDEO]

The ancient siege weapon will make your hunting crossbow look like a flimsy toy! 

This homemade modern version of the ancient siege weapon, the ballista, is just as powerful and awe inspiring!

 

The ballista fires 4-foot long projectiles up to 100 yards, and not much can stand up to the beating it brings on its target. An old leaf spring from a junkyard is the powerhouse behind this brute and gives it a surprising amount of power. You can witness this power as it demolishes an old oven.

This huge crossbow may just be your go-to weapon when zombie elephants come knocking!
