This is a tutorial of how to make a simple dispenser machine gun.

-1 dispenser
-9 redstone dust
-8 placeable blocks, (not something that can be activated by redstone ex: tnt)
-7 redstone torches
-1 lever (or other switch)

5 width x 10 length x 2 height

Firstly, the black wool indicates the space that is needed in rectangular form, you could make this smaller. Secondly, all of the blocks you need to place are blue wool.

Step 1:
Get supplies.

Step 2:
Place dispenser in the front row, in the middle.
Posted Image

Step 3:
Place 1 redstone dust behind the dispenser.
Posted Image

Step 4:
Place three blocks as shown.
Posted Image

NOTE: This is taken when standing on top of the dispenser.

Step 5:
Place 1 redstone dust in the center block.
Posted Image

Step 6:
Place 2 torches beside the redstone.
Posted Image

Step 7:
Place 1 lever on the left block with a torch, this is the trigger. (In background is another gun)
Posted Image

Step 8:
Place one redstone dust behind the other torch block.
Posted Image

Step 9:
Place one block on a diagonal with the redstone just place, and put one torch on that block to activate the redstone.
Posted Image

Step 10:
Place another redstone dust, another block, and another torch.
Posted Image

Step 11:
Do the same, but in a different place and in a line with the previous torch.
Posted Image

Step 12:
Place redstone to go around the corner.
Posted Image

Step 13:
Place another block with another torch.
Posted Image

Step 14:
Place a redstone so that it is beside the previous torch, and attached to this new block.
Posted Image

Step 15:
Place a redstone torch and a redstone dust connecting to the block in "Step 9". If you have done this correctly, you will notice that the torches start flashing.
Posted Image

Step 16:
Flick the switch to activate machine gun (do not forget to load the dispenser).
Posted Image

NOTE: In this picture, the switch is not activated, and the gun is not shooting.

Hope this helps! :iapprove:

I liked this, it was smart but very simple redstone use.


I found out how to add RAPID FIRE! ;)

Why is this in the Mapping and Modding section?

Good question. Moved to Beta. The tutorials section is, as far as I can tell, for tutorials about mapping and modding.

Nice tut, but there is a way more compact and easy method of doing so requiring:
1 Dispenser
1 Redstone
2 Redstone Torches
1 Redstone Repeater
1 Lever
3 Basic Blocks (assuming you have a solid ground).
Assemble it like so: (Front view, but obviously the lever would be at the back.

PS: The red line is a single redstone dust.

The repeater is at a 3 setting to prevent burnout, but you can still utilize all time settings (you'll just have to reset by hitting the lever twice). The top redstone torch is for rapid fire, and the clock has a torch powering a block, powering a repeater, powering the dispenser. At the same time as it powers the dispenser, the redstone dust is also powered, and that redstone powers the original torch, repeating the cycle.

If you are not sure, I also have a video.
