RFSG can be built HVZ safe, but it's somewhat pointless to do so, because you just made yourself a big Buzzbee Torrent. The RFSG's best use is as a war gun as spooky said.

I think I have enough nerf/dart guns for this year, but if there are some guns that get their price drop to an unbelievable price level of low-ness. Should I consider to purchase it?

What blaster(s)? If anything, no matter how low they go, I wouldn't buy recons, mavericks, or deploys. Just not worth it...

Speedswarms and Barricades seem to be in the clearance bin quite often now. I've picked up a few for loaner blasters for our club and they're both good for parts/integrations.

I've also seen half price Nitrons as soon as the Pyragon started showing up on shelves.

Budget Battler is not really budget-friendly I must say. $30? But I really want this one merchant account and have been craving for the belt blaster. Gotta have that.

Any thoughts on the "New" Retaliator or the Rampage? I purchased a Retaliator and a Maverick on the recommendations from a friend, but after reading all this I'm torn. Still haven't opened either, so I guess now is the time to decide if i'm sticking with it or not.

Was your friend planning on becoming a zombie? I don't know ANYONE who would recommend a maverick!
I own both a rampage and a retaliator and I am personally going to be using a rampage for the upcoming game this month just one one advantage the rtaliator doesn't fulfill for me. Both have their own strongpoints that should be considered when unmodified:

RAMPAGE
+Pump action
+More rifle-esque
+25round drum
+Slamfire
-Sans stock

RETALIATOR
+Tons of attachments such as stock, grip, and front barrel
+Super slim 12round magazine
+Holsterable
+Better ranges
-Not as blowgun attachable friendly(my own reason)

What do you guys think of vintage guns?

long story short, there's a new in box 1994 Ballzooka for sale here. I think it'd match my hypersight quite well.(you have no idea how long the range is on that thing)

What is a "budget battler"?
I was thinking about some blasters that could be easily used straight from the box, without needing mods to be useful.
1. Pyragon
2. Any other Vortex blaster
3. Rampage + Retaliator

And then a few blasters that would be good as is if you are smart and fit:
1. Rayven
2. Alpha Trooper
3. Stampede

If you want it, get it, but don't expect to use it in battle, the ammo will be more of a pain than discs would be.

Also, I would have to say that if you need a blaster to just give out if a teammate runs out of ammo, or your blaster jams irreparably, or you need something smallish to pull out to run like hell with, then a Mav would be okayish in those situations.

Range is about 25ft. Ball blasters would be terrible for HvZ seeing the scarcity of ammo at an HvZ match and slow ammo speed.

Remember if you use it, it's for da lols. Also what zombie doesn't want to be hit by something that should be so easily dodged. I'd say use it, cause they wont be prepared for the slow speed.

Really outdated response, but I'm envisioning a "grenadier" style outfit with bandoliers of balls and souped-up grenade-launcher type monstrosities with Stryfe backup... that'd probably be a lot of fun to play.
