In Avengers: Infinity War, we saw Thor adopting the Stormbreaker weapon which is basically an axe after his beloved hammer, Mjolnir was destroyed by his sister Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. It’s pretty hard to imagine Thor without his signature Asgardian weapon which only the worthy could wield but when we saw the Stormbreaker in action, it looked pretty damn sick. However, it looks like there were other plans for Thor’s weaponry.
In Ragnarok and Infinity War, Thor had to adopt various methods of kicking a– including straight up fist fights and even alien firearms. In Ragnarok we saw said firearms being utilized pretty competently by the God of Thunder and it looks like Infinity War had bigger plans for Thor’s abilities with them in earlier concept art.
In Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War – The Art of the Movie courtesy of @akaspidey, we see plenty of early character designs of Thor in Infinity War. We see plenty of different looks of the God of Thunder some of which are vastly different from what we saw on screen. Some of those designs included him with firearms. Check it out below:

In the end, we saw him with the Stormbreaker which was pretty cool itself but you gotta admit, he looks pretty badass with those guns and I’m not talking about his muscles. Perhaps there’s a chance we would see Thor using a gun as his signature weapon in the future or perhaps even a secondary weapon cause well, it can be quite efficient. However, it would be weird to see him doing so and might not really allow his character to stand out all that much. Maybe, they’ll find a way…. or not.
