1  Playing / HvZ Tactics / Re: Nerf blowgun on: April 16, 2015, 08:19:59 PM
The main advantage of blowguns - range - has been reduced somewhat in recent years due to the increased effective range of stock Nerf blasters. However, I can see them as still being a viable niche weapon.
I agree with the above short of the blowgun's main advantage not being range, but accuracy. The reason I have incorporated a blowgun into pretty much every loadout of mine since '13 has been because of its ability to conserve ammo by requiring less pot shots. Its the only piece in my arsenal(or anyone that I know for the matter) that can consistently(roughly 80%) make tags 30 yards out. Not to say there aren't well-modded blasters that can't do the same with a much higher and steadier ROF but again, these are 'well-modded'. The best use for a blowgun is either secured onto the top rail of your primary or attached to a sling of some sort for easy carrying.
"Why not to use a blowgun as a primary?":
Blowguns can be(...)awkward and potentially teeth-shatteringly unsafe to use at close range.
That and the fact that 9 out of every 10 people use a blaster that uses mags, so the prevalence of whistler and buzzbee darts are starting to die out. Less people using these types of ammo means theres almost no such thing as scavenging ammo with a blowgun(atleast in my meta I've been noticing).

Overall, I'd say they're still relevant and have a place in games but there are risks that need to be accounted for before deciding to go out and "spittin' dat foam".

First post in over a year and wanted something valid to write so I decided why not about my most recent purchase of some chinese amazon knock off darts. The kick? They're solid RED.

I ordered 150 of them for 12.27$ which is about 3$less then the standard for authentic nerf brand elites. The average order of 50darts runs about 4.09$ and I expect them to arrive around the end of October. The brand on the darts is Fasport(never heard of them before?) and I've only heard that they're a bit thicker then regular darts. Not enough to not function in blasters, but enough that breach using blasters might have a jam or two. I usually rely on flywheels so this should be a PLUS+ for me. I'll update this original post for when I get the order in with pictures as well.

Honestly, there is no need. Most people tend not to play based on title but instead on the role thats needed of them. Missions put strain on humans in a way that requires them to be fluid and mobile instead of rigid and fixed.

I don't know why Lucaz linked those.
Reference foo!

His budget it tight though. You'll need more money to buy more mags, darts, and accessories.
As opposed to a retaliator(25$)/rampage(30$) or a longshot(usually 25$+ for just the main gun)?
How about you list what you have already to choose from such as mags or if you''re starting from scratch?

Why not a stryfe? 20$ for a lightweight customizable blaster that has the ROF for hordes and control for picking off zombies.

am I missing something that enables slamfire?
It seems to all be there. The only real pieces/locks that slamfire needs is that pully bar featured prominently in your picture. Sled moves forward, drags bar into place, trigger lift catch. Should be functioning.

Thread is a year old. PLEASE don't necro old threads unless you have something meaningful to contribute. Thanks.

Got to say I'm loving the new colors for it. Excited to see what it may accomplish with streamlines.

I have to clean that gunk off my flywheels monthly really, even more if I had a game recently. I don't really notice any performance difference as to say, before flywheel gunk and after, but I'd rather not wait and see if it melts on hot days or finds a way into the motors gears.

EDIT:  My post got deleted before.  I'm not sure why... If a mod deleted my post, can you message me and explain why?  (I can't find a rules thread)  I thought it was a cool idea and figured I would repost in case it was just the system being odd and getting rid of it
Meant to edit your post, the link sent to an add page after not being able to find the correct serial number. My bad.

Welcome to the HVZ forums!
For you to participate in an HVZ event, you must first find and contact your nearest playing group whether its a college/school campus or group of individuals playing in parks. Almost every campus have their own rules regarding underage payers and conduct regarding those that don't attend classes there. Just about everywhere I've personally played in California has allowed underage players with parental consent and a good attitude.  If none seem to be within reasonable distance, why not start your own group and play with some friends?  Wink

When you say accessories, you're inquiring about a multitude of things. Ammo storage like the barrel breaks, pin point sights/faux-scopes, slings, integration possibilities, and front barrels are all some of the following. Please specify what you're looking for! In the mean time, one of the best custom nerf accessory manufacterers out there has to be Sly-Dev.
