China’s newest weapon is not your typical gun—more like a weapon against smelling bad. The giant deodorizing guns are China’s way of masking Beijing’s landfill issues, simply by covering the smell.

The ever growing city is facing more and more problems with the amount of garbage infiltrating their landfills, and scent obviously goes hand in hand with this issue. Apparently the city only recycles 4% of its garbage, causing huge issues with where to put it. The giant deodorizing guns are able to spray up to a distance of 164 feet, neutralizing smells across entire landfills. And what a solution it is.
