Is it just me, or have things on the Nerf side been lackluster recently? 

Nope, not just you. for 2014 it looks like it has been the "gimmick" year of nerf, more so than ever.although some of the of the 2014 line has been good for HVZ combat,  with the demolisher, slingfire...and i think thats it.

hopefully the new 2015 stuff will be better, although some of the gimmicks are kinda cool (like the new rebelle secret shot), there aren’t that HVZ quality  Undecided

I had been seeing a ton of issues such as most pages not loading, but now it's even faster than ever before!  #worthit

I check out the Nerf aisle ever time I'm at Target, and the vast majority of new blasters seem to be from the Zombie Strike or Mega line, and I'm not very impressed with these products.  The Zombie Strike blasters generally have low capacity, low rate of fire, and long re-load times (few magazine fed blasters: Slingfire and re-colored Longshot).  Likewise, Mega products are low rate of fire

The Rapidstrike and Demolisher are competent electric blasters, but there's not much as far as springers.  I guess there are just limits to what the Nerf group at Hasbro can develop, due to ammunition size and safety constraints.

Been a rough week for the forums. Sorry about the downtime. Our SQL database has been having a fit. I just fixed most of thee corruption in the data base and moved the forums to a different server.

You'll see that things should get more stable and run faster.

I don't know why nobody but me use the vortex blasters. I use a pyragon to hose down my enemies and keep a revonix 360 as a back up I also keep a mega Magnus as a second backup just in case. That gives me 70 rounds total between the two vortex blasters and another three extra fast darts for emergencies.I also keep a fanny pack so that I can just pick up my disks as I run and throw them into the fanny pack so that I don't get caught with my pants down so to speak. Then I just find cover and reload at my leisure. All in all I've taken down ambushes of up to 11 zombies at a time and come out completely unscathed.I am just waiting for a high-capacity slam fire mega blaster to come out because I love the speed of the mega darts but I also love the slam fire ability of the vortex blasters.

So I just got everything but the battery pack today, I'm getting that from a local hobby shop.
After a few burns and a lot of re-cutting and stripping wires, I got the female connector in the battery space and cut the tray into a plug to cover the hole.

Hey everyone,

Spooky, that you?

These are that other brand I mentioned, they showed up first on ebay, then the black and blue showed up on Amazon and redditors found them. Good to see the red on Amazon as well, and now they have a name. Fasport darts, alongside Voberry darts, and Koosh darts. That other blogger said he bought some on ebay, but if he doesn't post soon you will be the NIC's guinea pig for these. I always need darts, so if you find them decent/not garbage I will buy some and do the usual testing.

I have the Koosh darts from yutoys tested fully, I am waiting to get the blog post up about the field test before posting here. In the meantime, they have decently glued tips and non-undersize foam and caused 0 malfunctions in the field (compared to 1 malfunction for J-code elite) and yet I am not exactly blown away by the accuracy from my RS.

I am leaning toward the Voberry darts so far as my favorite for HvZ, cheap and reliable, though I found a couple with excessively hard tips from another batch that were shot by someone else.

Haven't done this in a pretty long time, but here's my *new* HvZ load out, and by far the most radical change I've made since I started playing.

The Loadout:


I've decided to move away from high powered breech fed, DMR-esque setups to something much more compact. Overall, my play style hasn't changed - I've just changed my priorities from mid-range combat to reliability and relying on stealth. Ditched the vest in favor of a belt setup to keep everything in a stable location and to shed as much excess bulk and weight as I could. As a general rule I like to minimize the percentage of my own weight that I carry since I'm a pretty small individual, lol.






Stryfe has NSR 3005 motors with a neodymium magnet swap being powered, as you can see, by a 2600 mAh 4s LiPo. Aside from the stated internal modifications, I've painted the shell in a white and black paint job and removed the stock Nerf rail in favor of a full length run of polymer picatinny rail. Side rail on the left hand side mounted far up on the blaster to mount whatever accessory I feel necessary at the time. In this case it's a light, but I'm thinking a shotgunned air tank for invitationals. The stock is a reworked and lengthened Retaliator stock which is meant to house the battery. Overall stock size is one inch longer than normal and I threw on a haphazardly made cheek riser recently to add a bit of usability. Sights are PTS MBUS sights and the red dot is the same one I use on my airsoft equipment. Lancer Tactical WML and a Magpul RSA so I can actually sling this while running. Shoots ~120FPS.

The sidearm is a Sweet Revenge that has honestly saved my ass so many times the past game I played, that I'm pretty much committed to always carrying it. It's not anything special internally except for the removal of the dart pegs and AR. I didn't want to upgrade the springs since the strong point of the blaster (and the Hammershot) is the one hand prime ability. Shoots ~75 FPS




My gear setup is a custom cutaway-molls belt panel I made with 3 rows and 9 columns. Kydex with 3 belt loops, the panel itself runs maybe 260 grams with pouches mounted. Running BFG Ten-speed SR25 pouches for my backup mags, and a Phantom Gear Aggressor double stack M4 pouch that really conveniently holds a single mag for primary reloads. Small little square is a BFG dump pouch that folds into a VERY small footprint when out of use. Overall, I can carry up to 4 mags (including whatever is already loaded), and generally carry 12's because 18's are too tall to be kept on my body with any sort of convenience. What's not pictured is an MS3 sling.

For some nostalgia, here's what I used to run in the past:



My personal favorite and probably my first feet first experience into HvZ and modding. 19/32 Brass Breech with 11Kg spring, cut for stefans only. Shoots 180FPS.



The revision of the blaster I ran last game (and also ended up bringing to the Binghamton Invite). A longer, but MUCH lighter alternative to my LS which was honestly just way easier to manage and carry. The first attempt at this had a slightly different breech design (SG Nerf Stampede style) while this one is more traditional (Standard brass breech). Both of them had a removable Thinwall PVC sheath to protect the barrel and a tubular stock equal in length to the LS stock fully extended. This one has a completely reworked catch and trigger mechanism replacing the stock setup. Overall, a decent idea, but the reliability with this build is honestly just very hit or miss. Sometimes it works perfectly, other times I honestly have no idea why it won't work properly. Shoots 170 FPS running a stock and 6KG OMW RP Spring.

I have probably spent way too much money on this game throughout the years. My current load out pictured up top is probably around $500... which is excessive, yet completely unsurprising to me now lmao. Then again, the same thing can probably be said about the people I play with xD
