The Metal Storm has a rate of fire of one million rounds per minute.
Yes, you read that right: the Metal Storm has the potential to fire one million rounds a minute, which gives it the highest theoretical rate of fire out of any gun in the world.
It accomplishes this incredible feat due to the fact that it has 36 barrels, each loaded with 180 rounds. These bullets do not have a primer or casing and are fired electronically, which allows the Metal Storm to fire at such a rapid rate.

While it is has a lot of potential, at this point, the Metal Storm still has a long way to go before it is actually able to fire a million rounds in a minute (if it ever does). Even if it were able to accomplish that feat in reality, there are a lot of other hurdles that would need to be cleared for it to be practical to use in the real world.
Even so, it’s still a very cool gun and an interesting concept.
