(v.) To carry and use two single-hand weapons at the same time; often associated with Halo 2, although it is featured in many other FPS titles as well.
"Dude, dual-wielding magnums is like going cowboy, yo!"
Also known as akimbo or dual-fisting. The act of firing two guns at once, one in each hand.more...
A ridiculous, idiotic, and downright fucktarded practice popularized in John Woo movies and unrealistic video games like Call of Duty.
It is probably descended from the few gunhands in the old West who used two pistols. But instead of firing both at once, they would either do a Border Switch (draw two guns, empty the first one before firing the second), or a New York Reload (draw your backup piece when your weapon runs dry rather than reloading). This is because it is impossible for a human being to look through two sets of sights at once.
Therefore if you fire two guns at once, at least one of them won't be aimed at all, causing you to waste all of the ammo in that gun hitting nothing that you actually wanted to. Or you could just do it the Hollywood way and not even try to use your sights, meaning you'll just spray & pray with both weapons, waste all of your ammo, and hit everything except your target. Also, using two SMGs or automatic rifles instead of pistols doesn't make this stupidity more effective, it just makes you waste more ammo, look more retarded,...
