A popular user option in "Doom", and used vigorously in the feature film version of the game. Other names: Standard-Issue Big Gun, S.I.B.G., Big-Ass Gun, B.A.G., copwaster. For more details, visit Wikipedia entry "Aliens" (motion picture), and see paragraphs devoted to weapons created for and seen in the film.
Strongly desired by Daily Show host Jon Stewart, who during a "Doom"-related TDS interview with The Rock, claimed that he "got a hard-on" after temporarily gripping a B.F.G.; The Rock verified that Stewart indeed did get an erection after holding the weapon.

Seen used in "Aliens" by Private Vasquez immediately following the line, "LET'S ROCCCCCCK!"
