33 Arena-Savvy Items

Act Like a Participant of the Hunger Games With These Items

— March 23, 2012 — Unique
From frying pans to flamethrower gloves, these 33 arena-savvy items are sure to help you handle the modern obsession with gladiator-style structured violence. Battle Royale, The Running Man, The Condemned and The Hunger Games all revolve around protagonists who have been forced into a deadly arena-type environment inhabited by other individuals out to save their own lives by being the the final survivor.

The warriors in these stories do not get to choose which weapon they wield into battle, but rather have to scatter throughout the vast environment in search of hidden caches that provide an assortment of arena-savvy items. Some provide heavy firepower, while others present nothing more than a bottle opener.
