Last week we delivered you a tour of the colossal Alien: Covenant sets at Fox Studios in Sydney, host by Tested's eternally nerdy Adam Savage.

Now, in the second installment of his trip Down Under, Savage is offered a peek at Covenant's wicked arsenal of weapons with a hands-on assortment of guns, knives and armor at his fingertips.

Armorist John Bowring, the dude who created Crocodile Dundee's outback blade, offers some inside secrets on the prop guns and stunt weapons fabricated and customized by the effects team. Then follow Savage into the breakaway effects department for a gooey dip into the many alien, human and synthetic bloods and fluids specially concocted for the screen.

After your immersion into the Hollywood magic, head on over to the latest Weyland-Yutani promo site,, where you can create your very own Walter synthetic human model, perfectly tailored to your specifications and requirements. What could possibly go wrong?!
