Looking for a pickup game? Post here. Summer is made for Nerf!
>>7541112Does that Xshot take rival rounds?How many rounds can it hold?
>>7541115Yes, six rounds.
>>7541138Can it take rival Mags?
>>7541142What? Look at the handguard It has an internal mag like the Kronos.
>>7541145It looks as though that mag could slide out the bottom and be removed/replaced is all.Wasnt sure if it was built in or not.
I think I have a new gunfu.
>>75411123d-printed, semi-auto flywheel(no priming, hammer or otherwise), half-length dart revolver, with break-action and swappable cylinders:Firing demo:https://youtube.com/watch?v=NXU5JwIEYqAFiles:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3621882
>>7541142No, it’s an internal mag. You pull down the follower and bottom load it:https://youtube.com/watch?v=Y8hkTrIKl1Q(Drac vid because he’s the only one who’s shown footage of it so far.)
>>7541718More pics and info about the X-shot Chaos Orbit and Meteor (pic related):https://www.blaster-time.eu/zuru-x-shot-chaos-blasters/
A few days ago, some dude finally cracked the code of how to make horizontal magazines work with flywheels (for half-length darts at least):https://youtube.com/watch?v=M3xlucom9sgHopefully this will let other designers make cool blasters like the concept in pic related.
>>7541112>>7541718>>7541722I know they're just Rival ripoffs, but this time, they look better than the originals.You win this time, Buzzbee.
>>7542275OOPS, I MEAN XSHOT>
For me, it's the Nerf Hera.
>>7541680Psche... you can always take the dum and place it in a Stampede as it was meant to be
>>7541700we have new winner for "nerf blaster most likely to be abused by steampunkers" contest. Poor Maverick can finally retire.
>>7542542I doubt it. It looks nothing like steampunk. Too streamlined. Too tacticool.Long live Maverick.
>>7541700The designer’s already working on a full-length version. This new design has got a very distinctive aesthetic to it.
>>7542554Looks like a futuristic good old Webley

I Herd U Liek Jolts
>>7544941>>7545591>have incredible hammer tech >REFUSE to fucking use it and instead make endless jolt clones fuck this gay earth
should i buy a hypnos? why or why not? i don't give a shit about slam fire, and i also am capable enough to not have to worry about the short-stroke issue. this would be my first rival blaster, as i'm trying to get into rival stuff in preparation for the release of the perses.
>>7547550Honestly, I would recommend all the mainline nerf stuff except maybe the Atlas(for being shit), Zeus(for being fiddly and only good for mods) and Khaos(for being completely and utterly outclassed).I'd say the Hades or Artemis are similar to what the Hypnos provides and you can find them pretty cheap, but they're a pain to reload so they're not great for long games.
>>7545635...so what you’re saying is you want more Jolts?
New upcoming blaster. Appears to have a 45 (15x3) dart capacity.
>>7550671god why are they all so hideous
>>7550671I sort of wish the drums on this thing would slowly rotate while firing, like a ferris wheel or rotisserrie chicken roaster.>>7551086Ugly must be a design prerequisite for Adventure Force.
>>7541112From the Rochester Foam Dart League’s facebook page:Apparently we’re getting another Kronos alternative.Also drac posted a review of >>7550671which mentions this, which is how I learned this was even posted.
>>7555526Apparently it’s set to retail at $10, which is a pretty good price.
>>7555526>>7555528>>7555531>snub-nose Rival pistolWell, I'm sold. Goofy safety, though. Might wait for the Dart Zone variant.
>>7555586Upon further inspection, it looks to be the same size as the Nerf and X-Shot pistols.
where the fuck can i get some cheap apollos? i would have thought the price would go down after this long
This pretty blaster is from the creator of the Pigeon. Apparently it’s an XR2 replica:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3651908Gameplay footage:https://youtube.com/watch?v=jt8nhpjDPKw
>>7557367speaking of 3d-printed blasters, I'm excited for the woozi and want to find someone who can do the prints for mehttps://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3640257basically a talon-magazine rapidstrike that's smaller than a stryfe
>>7542975>D Cell Alkalines>Hyperfire style belt dart pusher>Barely keeps up with a Rapidstrike
>>7548101>jolts are now the funko pops of blastersI remember back when jolt prime came out and everyone loved it since it was functional and novel, if only we knew
>>7542897Oh Lardy it’s a comin’.(Design just entering testing stage)
>>7541700I just love that gritty SHHK noise 3d printed guns make when parts move against each other
>>7560080Like corduroy pants rubbing together on steroids.
Am I the only one going to buy this thing on the first?
>>7560666nice try satanbut really, I've considered it since I like bolts but I'm probably putting it off, let us know how it feels would you?
>>7560677Will do, I'm hoping Walmart actually has it stocked on Saturday.
>>7556557just copped 3 on ebay for 21 bucks
>>7559965>>7542897If I could buy this that'd be nice
>>7561052>+50 shippingMan fuck why Nerf gotta be so bulky.
>>7541700A different designer just released the files for an alternate bulkier looking barrel piece for the half-length version:https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3655481He also wrote a bit of an installation guide/write-up:https://www.thingiverse.com/make:661453
>>7561976This reminds me, whatever happened to the Anon with a Hammerprime, flip out cylinder final exam?
>>7559965>>7561976I was never a fan of half dart mods, but that's still a sexy looking piece, and I'd love to give that full sized one a shotShame 3d printed stuff is always disproportionately expensive since it's effectively made to order every single time, be it by you or some etsy shop.
>>756196821 bucks included the shipping for me, but yeah it is nutty how high the shipping costs usually are
>>7562030What makes you not like half-lengths?Ever since switching I've loved them and refuse to use full-length anything anymore, they're just better in every way
>>7562678give or take: autism, incompatibility with a lot of blasters while long darts are pretty universal, pretty negligible improvements at common blaster fps (especially if you just use cut down normal darts like accufakes and not something like worker)Like 150+ fps sure, from all I can tell halfies shit all over full length, but I guess I usually play at a more casul levelAgain: autism, I probably should give them another shot some timeTangential, but when I was double checking fps apparently bongland starts treating any toy guns as air weapons if their projectile is above above 1.3J/~170 fps for foam darts, and were even considering lowering that to 1J/~130 fps, with a lot of nerf meetups having super low restrictions, so no one there can really get the full potential out of stefansShit sounds like it sucks>YOU GOT A LOICENSE FOR THAT CALIBURN
>>7563001wait, but if you cut them down to half that means less mass, which means less energy for the same velocity, so stefans would possibly increase the limit right?shit nigga I flunked my physics classes I can't into this
>>7563001Those poor britsWe may have an absurdly low muzzle energy limit for retail blasters here in Aus (50fps for darts, 30fps for Rival balls if the line was sold here), but then actual weapons law says as long as they're firing foam darts it's fine, build a full-auto air-powered blaster running off a paintball tank and firing at 300fps and the worst they can charge you with is causing a public disturbance if you be a twat with it
>>7563010still, I highly doubt the bobbies will be roaming the parks with chronometers just in case ollie twist plugged his air restrictors and swapped springs, they have much bigger issues to worry about like butter knives or bike wheelsthe real issue is the nerf groups voluntarily being pussies and enforcing low ass limits (down to like 100fps in some groups, possible to break with a stock rival blaster if you get a lucky shot)
>>7557505>>7557508this thing is just begging to have a rival variant, would shell out for that no questions asked
>>7560666god its ugly...
>>7562007God I want one
There releasing this on August 15 for $30.How useful are these actually for dart cleanup?https://www.amazon.com/NERF-NER0225-Elite-Dart-Rover/dp/B07PNJZPZC/
>>7566665From the pictures from toy fair it looks like the bag on it doesn't hold much.
>>7566665>Nerf lawn mowerNext year, you'll combine their useless gadgets and vehicles and make a riding lawn mower that will pick up darts. They can call it the John Darte Battle Mower.>>7566754I'm sure someone will 3D print a replacement expansion piece. Or just tape a plastic bag in it's place.
>>7560666>>7560677>>7560704Well shit, looks like I won't be getting it on Saturday, it got delayed. Has this happened with any other blasters?
>>7563024>the real issue is the nerf groups voluntarily being pussies and enforcing low ass limitsAll it would take is some ass hats who get into drama in the group and decide to punish everyone by figuring out a way to get the police to actually be motivated to go after them. Maybe make claims everyone is getting high and passing the drugs to minors while ramping up speeds of the projectiles far above the legal limit to potentially dangerous levels and shot at each other including said minors. Police come, feel like time was wasted due to no drugs, but realize 'hey, there IS a law they are breaking, let's not feel like we are completely wasting our time here."So I can't completely scoff at groups for being 'pussies' you never know when people decide to be asses and if they have the legal backing to their assholery, better to play it safe.
can we please have the Perses now
what cheap rival ammo should i get
>>7567547Fair points, still pissed at "no fun allowed" laws enabling situations like these
Reminder that anything can be made into a pistol if you’re determined enough.
>>7569963byootifulprometheus pistol when?
Coop772 is now in the same weight class as Walcom, I sense a Foam Flinging Duel coming up
>>7571087>coop's massive weight fluctuations are a secret keikaku to enter every nerf weight class to assert dominance over all other nerfers
Well it looks like they’re at least selling additional shells this time.
Is the nerf elite strongarm any good? Found one for 50¢
>>7574818There is to real downside to it.
>>7574825Always wanted a nerf. Poorfag me feels pretty good about finally owning one. Will post pics later.
>>7572536>>7571087the hell happened to him?
>>7575086He had surgery but didn't say what for. It's why he didn't upload anything for like a month.
Trying to clear up space, is it worth keeping any of the older ones? (There are a few that hold sentimental or plinking value so I might want to keep)I recently got back into the hobby but have no interest in modding.
>>7575099the titan+unity system kicks ass and is ostensibly the first n-force ever so that's a keeperold dart tag blasters are niec and apparently went up in price a bit (but that's hearsay so grain of salt)longstrike is a meme and they released an updated version with modulus that's better in literally every way but aestheticsdeploy is fun but has equal performance to putting a dart on a table and trying to move it with a vacuum cleaner 5 feet away
>>7575117>titanwas pretty cool when it worked was pretty kickass but for a while now it hasnt been able to hold a charge, and the missile broke. the only working piece is the pistol which i like the aesthetics of.>dart tagquick ebay search doesnt seem like any of them are worth more than 20 bucks>longstrikeholding onto it until the update is on sale>deployalready in my pile of outtahere, especially since my dumb kid self left batteries in for an actual decade and its got an acid deposit.I'm definitely following the releases like crazy and doing research before buying them. so far my recent purchases are>2 hammershots which i love to death>evader which is awesome>infinus which i love>modulus which is fun and works well but not exactly the best or my fav.
>>7575134I might have been thinking of the snapfire 8 then, which is a pain in the dick to find on top of the cunts at hasbro straight up naming one of their not-jolts the snapfire afterwardsStill, integrated banana mag and ayylmao rifle were pretty fun
>>7575134I'd take that deploy out of your hands gladly if not for the fact that overseas shipping would likely cost more than buying one from ebay.Its deficiences are waaaay overrated (there are FAR worse blasters from Worker, no less, selling for hilariously high prices) and the deploying thing is nice.
how can i make a Quick 16 viable in the year 2019? they're such good looking blasters
>>7577225>Quick 163d print a stripper clip and stock
>>7577910what is it with this assumption that everyone has a 3d printer. I don't think there is a 3d printer within a 100mile radius of me.
>>7578005you can get 3d prints done to order or find shit on etsy/ebay/whatever
>>7577910both good ideas, but my main concern is that it is basically incompatible with elite/streamline darts.
>>7575099personally I always had a soft spot for the Raider. Quite a fun slamfire gun IMO
>>7578205the jamming issues are from it being a banana making non fat head darts misaligned when feeding I thinkI've heard of a lot of mods for other guns basically hacking out the internal magazine and gluing a regular 18 rd stick mag in its place, or more simply you might be able to make a slope to attach to the feed mechanism and/or mag follower(?) to straighten them out but I haven't seen any examples of that
>>7578394oh shit, i didnt think about the sloped thing on the follower. I think i may pick one up and just start fucking around with it to see what i can come up with. thanks for the idea, man! i wish nerf would make another springer that has the constant top-up feature.
>>7560666Jared posted a review of this with some close-ups of the internals at 5:15:https://youtube.com/watch?v=LI5GkZ8uL5w
>>7563008Conservation of energy. The acceleration of the dart is a function of the spring/air force which never changes, thus as the dart's mass goes down the acceleration goes up, creating the same force. The energy of the dart is related to the length on which this force acts, which in a Nerf gun is fairly small since barrels which would trap pressure would also increase friction.What I don't get is why everyone here uses feet per second rather than meters per second, especially >>7563001 when talking about the JOULES of energy that limit them.
>>7581784fps was always the official measurement for nerf, since it's an amerifat company, and it just sorta became the norm
>>7581822I wasn't sure of this myself but taking a look at the website they do in fact include the m/s value alongside the f/s value. It's only accurate to a single figure anyway, so when measuring using a chronometer I would for sure use m/s.
>>7581942They may include it in a little parenthetical on the site but the bold box figures/commercials/selling point bullet lists always used fps and most of the big nerf communities/youtubers are also american ergo even more fps prevalence I have no ill will towards metric believe me, just taking a jab at why it might be like this
coop's a...a big boy these dayswhat happened to him?
>>7541112Can a stampede handle a 9kg spring without a gear upgrade as well?
>>7541112>tfw no foamblast gfWhy do I even go on
>>7585906I don’t know about not having a gear upgrade since it basically works like an airsoft gearbox
>>7586047She's a raging dyke, anon, and looks like she hasn't seen a dentist in 15 years.
>>7586129she's cute tho
>>7585906depends on the stampedeas the saying goes, suck it and see
>>7586162Should I buy the gears in case? I can't find the cheap metal gears alone and I'm not sure what I'd do with an extra spring.
>>7586163If you can only buy the gears as a kit with the spring, sure, save yourself some money in the event of a possible breakageNo harm can come from upgrading them
>>7581822It has the advantage of being a larger number, making it more impressive. That's why we use it even in countries that don't share deep cultural laces with Liberia and Myanmar
>>7586129Still not as gay as the girl who programmed and put together a full-spectrum cycling, light-up, rainbow rayven, as a way to express just how deeply gay she is:https://youtube.com/watch?v=d9MP8DBuwNgDoes Nerf just naturally attract lesbians or something?
>>7586859They're a Hasbro brand. Brian Goldner would declare war on straights if he thought it would make money.
>>7557505I just want one that looks kinda similar to the OG uzi
>>7586155Normally I loved short haired QTs but Adriana or w/e her name is is not cute. If she got some dental work done and stopped dying her hair stupid colors, maybe she could be.
>>7586859>Does Nerf just naturally attract lesbians or something?No, but lesbians are generally the only females who would be drawn to something like Nerf.
I stopped by a Goodwill in a "hick country" town and God damn they had at least 30 Nerf and other brand blasters!I don't wanna say it fit a stereotype, buuuuut....
>>7587355There's a couple butch straight girls in my nerf group
>>7587377In my experience the only straight girls who Nerf are either fat attention whores or girls who are only doing it because their boyfriend is.
>>7586859>programmable RGBIf she were a dude, she'd be a nerd basement dweller and celebrated as ONE OF US....
>>7587707She didn't do it though, she had someone else do that
>>7541760How is this anymore convenient than a straight one?
>>7541112How gay is it that people are so insistent on calling them "blasters" and "darts" instead of guns and bullets?
>>7588662welcome to 2019, where nerf trading groups have been shut down by facebook for using harmless gun-adjacent words like "stock", "barrel" or "trigger"
>>7588662I don't mind if you call them a nerf gun but calling a foam dart a "bullet" makes you sound like a retarded boomer.
>>7590684You take your child toys too seriously.
>>7590915It has nothing to do with taking anything seriously, retard. Calling a dart a bullet is as stupid as calling an arrow a bullet.
>>7590915>>7588662I do not take toy guns seriously, I do however take firearms in general seriously. A bullet is a the part that is fired from a rifle barrel, the rest of the cartridge is NOT a bullet. Only the tip of the cartridge, so stop referring to cartridges as bullets. Therefore it makes absolutely perfect sense why a foam dart, a BB, and a paint ball are not bullets. I get triggered everytime I hear nerf officially call them 'clips' instead of magazines. But I deal with it because I know why they do so.So no, it's not just the toy gun enthusiasts who get triggered and "taking toys too serious", the other side can't stand it either. It is perfectly understandable they will don't want misinformation as well.
Leaked image by Out of Darts.Apparently there was also a video, but he took both down.
>>7591082So what exactly is the EDGE series? According to Coop, it's their Rival line that's less competitive but more target shooting. But this thing looks competitive the the max.
>>7591259>According to Coop, it's their Rival line that's less competitive but more target shooting.I think that's more specific to the Mercury and the Jupiter since they come bundled with targets and from what I can tell so far rival rounds shot from they fly with really straight trajectory, but the others are just edge colored reskins.
The Dart-zone Destructor, their version of the Command fire, as revealed by this idiot who refuses to demonstrate the blaster or even give a goddamn wide-shot so you can actually see it:https://youtube.com/watch?v=g_vU5QnjRi0
>>7592760Seeing this confirms something that I've suspected for a while: Prime Time Toys is dumping their rejected designs onto Adventure Force and saving the good ones for Dart Zone. It's the only way to explain the Commandfire and Double Trouble.
>>7574789>tfw when not sledgefire shellsAt least the trilogy has shell ejection, otherwise its inferior in every way
Are the Worker clear flywheels any good?
>>7597024nofirstly, they're serrated, which is garbage and tears darts to shredssecondly, they're injection moulded rather than machined, which means they're imperfectly balanced and can damage motorsif you want cheap replacement flywheels, buy the worker smooth wheels
