Finding A Blaster For A Friend In A Power Chair. Not your average "what blaster do I get!!1" thread.

Right now, I think a MS/RF20 with a compressor is the way to go on a primary, possibly with a saw-off Tommy 20 as a secondary.
I'll let him look at my Powerclip and Wildfire to see what he thinks there.
Also, I'm currently thinking that a hit on his body is a hit. That way, it doesn't pay off to sneak behind him, and puts people more in front.

In terms of guns, I think that a MS or PC would not work primarily because once you pull the trigger, almost all of your shots are gone. A RF20 would be better, but personally, I think that he would be best equipped with Badwrench's Raider setup, and a BBBB that had a spring loaded pump so that he could return fire to far away targets.
On another note, would it be at all possible to make a Longshot have slam-fire capabilites? If so, you could give it a foregrip and a Raider drum. It would eliminate the need for a BBBB because he would be able to get off 100' shots with great ease.

Although if you wanted something with a bit more range, then a Magstrike with a PVC hard tank or an HPA tank strapped to the side or the back of the chair would be a great option, since you can get about 50 feet with that iirc, and fire off about 3 clips at a time before filling the bladder again. (If you band it)

We found best way for him to be involved is to be considered like movable heavy artillery so he'd wheel himself somewhere with a bit of cover and a good line of site and just have a vulcan with 3 belts and he'd just hammer anyone coming into his line of site and then he had a nitefinder by his leg.
We also stated only head and torso shots count, no legs, gun, wheels etc.
it seemed to work really well, even offered him a magstrike at one point and he just wasn't into it, leaves you too unprotected, 1 second all your darts are gone then you have to pump 20+ times to reload and whole most of us would run away it just doesn't work, might be good as the sidearm instead of the nitefinder but I wouldn't recommend an air blaster as a primary, has to be something with high capacity clips and quick reload like a vulcan or raider.
He probably could have handled 2 vulcans with them on straps but he was pretty devastating with just 1 and lots of darts.
Hope this helps
Also a big part of it is making it not seem like a big hassle for them to play, no constructing tanks for a chair that is specifically for them and only they can use, just a normal weapon, for a normal game with normal people, well as normal as Nerfer's get

We have a new space, so I'm modifying the ranges to short to mid.
As of right now, I'm figuring three blasters, A NF for fast and easy to reload, a minimized T20 for the rapid fire, and...this is my question.
I was thinking to round out the collection, something air powered, compact but have range, since he'd be using it at a distance, he could get away with more of a priming time.
The ideal, and what I'd probably loan him for now, is the AT2k, small, three quick pumps, four shots before reloading. It's also slightly modded, so it has a small boost there.
The problem with this, is finding another AT2k. Is there something more or less available that roughly matches the same specs? I'm willing to get inventive, but only to a point, busy as of late.
We are meeting the first of May, so I have some time, but I want to be ready.
EDIT: The chair also has a pretty decent cruising speed, so rushing isn't a problem - reminding him not to run people over is.

It can go as easy as cutting below the 2 holes and having a loose-fitting barrel for streamlines reaching up to 120 feet in 10-ish pumps, or pimping it out with a new pump and couplered and what not and break 150.
It's up to you but they're quick (5 minutes for the basic mod.), cheap ($5 at the right place), and effective (up to 130 feet for minimal modding.

They really aren't all that rare. Just expensive (around 45 bucks stock). But, Meatballica is right. A rear-loading sm1500 would be perfect for him.
