we tried that they think that players will not understand that only the magnus is allowed and they guy in charge just doesn't like using mega blasters in general so that is another reason why he doesnt want people using them

instantly looks at my precious Longstrike and HeartBreaker Bow... Seriously wonders what they're going on about...

OK, let's ignore that initial reaction.

If you can work it so that players understand/agree to that the CAB says can't use the Centurion and Mega Bow due to their size (possibly by involving a member of the CAB at briefings), with implications if they do (y'know, cos the college said so), maybe the CAB'll come round?

Hi i was wondering what gear, blasters and attachments and accessories does everyone bring for HvZ. 

I have been researching tac vests and idk if I should use the nerf tac vest or use like a air soft or military tac vest because there are a few surplus stores near me.   Also any other gear that you use to hold darts and clips.  I'm 6 ft 4 about 300 lbs.  The blasters that i mainly use are Rampages, 2 Stryfes and a demolisher.  My school doesnt allow any modes to our blasters and i just want to look super decked out because my nick name form my first game is "the walking arsenal" i earned that name because i would escort humans to class and loan them blasters if they need them

So I am a student at the University of Arkansas at fort smith (UAFS) and our campus activities board (CAB) doesn't like the idea of mega darts because the bow and the centurion are to big to be concealed in buildings  which is understandable but they wont let me use the magnus because they say they cant ban two blasters from a line without banning the whole line of nerf blasters.  does anyone have any suggestions on how i can get them to allow the mega dart blasters.  also same with the demolisher they wont allow the nerf missile because its not a "standard" nerf dart size.  They also dont allow any of the vortex blasters but none of us really care that we cant use those because none of us have them.

Cade flywheels are actually a tad bit smaller than the flywheels from Streamline/Elite dart blaster. I would imagine that throwing a set of cade wheels into a stryfe or rayven would end up hurting performance/not increasing it at all due to the larger gap between the wheels having less grip.

Both Energizer lithium and Energizer alkaline are primary cells (meaning not rechargeable), right? Ultimately which ones would last longer is a moot point, if you use rechargeables.

If you want to know which one would last longer, you can tell by checking the capacity, which is usually written in small text on each cell and measured in mAh (milli Amp-hours). More means that a cell will last longer, all other things being equal.

Ok, thank you very much !
Just one last question -- and believe me, I tried to look it up on google, but I didn't find anything : what batteries will last longer on a nerf gun : an energizer lithium or an energizer alkaline ? Because I have the two at home.

but how does NIMH work ?

Like all rechargeable batteries, NiMH batteries can be plugged into a charger, which plugs into wall power, which recharges the batteries such that they can once again power your battery-powered things.

How can it be when my Demolisher use AA batteries ?

When you install a pack, you don't use the stock battery tray - you put a connector in your blaster and on the pack, and then mount the pack wherever it fits. Battery packs use the same connectors to connect to their charger. You can find plenty of guides on soldering and installing battery packs online. Google is your friend.

Toruk recommended NiMH sub-C, which is a common size of cell used in battery packs which is a bit smaller than a C cell (hence the name).

It sounds like you don't have much background knowledge in electronics, in which case you either need to do a lot of reading before you start working on your blaster (but don't be discouraged - electronic mods are fun!), or you'd be better off just using those aforementioned consumer rechargeable AAs.

It was the first time I used the swarmfire. I was with my little sisters and I didnt realize it wasn't "normal" to shoot that much  Cheesy
Ok, so I should buy two sets of NIMH -- but how does NIMH work ? I don't understand.
And torukmakto4, you said that a set of NIMH C for my swarmfire could work also for my Demolisher, but how can it be when my Demolisher use AA batteries ?

Well, yeah, I was basically firing continuously during those minutes.

Most HvZ players don't fire anywhere near that much during a game - we'd run out of ammo! If you really want to fire many hundreds of darts per game, and can carry enough ammo, you'll want to use rechargeable batteries, and probably to carry at least one extra set of fully charged batteries.

Battery packs can provide better performance and endurance than loose cells because they do not incur parasitic resistance at the cell terminal contacts. However, if you don't want to modify your blasters and don't mind stockish performance, consumer-grade NiMH rechargeable batteries (i.e. the rechargeable batteries that they sell in pharmacies) could serve you well enough - you'll just need several sets to swap during long games.
