The Justifier is a light gun peripheral released by Konami for numerous home console games. Konami released versions of the gun for the Mega Drive/Genesis, Super NES, and PlayStation consoles. The original gun was similar in appearance to a Colt Python. The guns were originally designed for use with the home versions of Konami's Lethal Enforcers games, although they are compatible with some other games as well.


The original versions of the Justifier for the Genesis and SNES were modeled after the replica revolvers used in the original arcade version of Lethal Enforcers. The blue Justifier gun connects directly to the console. Optionally, a pink Justifier can be daisy chained into the blue gun for use by a second player.[1] The pink Justifier was only available directly from Konami via mail-order and is compatible with both, the SNES and Genesis models of the blue gun.

The PlayStation version of the lightgun (Sony ID: SLEH-00005, SLUH-00017), sold as the Hyper Blaster in Japan and Europe, is colored green (with the Japanese model being black) and only works in the first controller slot on the original design of the PlayStation 2. The Hyper Blaster was also the first light gun for the PlayStation, preceding the release of Namco's GunCon by a few years. Project Horned Owl, a gun-shooting game published by Sony Computer Entertainment, was the first title to support it.[2] The Hyper Blaster and the GunCon were mutually incompatible, although some games (such as the NTSC-U/C version of Elemental Gearbolt) supported both peripherals.
