Does this thing have an electrical outlet on it anywhere? I'm thinking of a plug in mod on two vulcans and go to town. Alternately Magstrikes with an air compressor. He'd be great at rushing if he can hit some decent speeds in that thing. Essentially the "OH SHIT" mobile. When you see him coming, raining down hundreds of darts, you can only declare "OH SHIT!" and hope to outrange him before you get inside his kill radius.

If you want a look at the chair, here are some pictures.

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.

If you are using stefans, you could make a metal target of some kind so that it made a very distinctive sound when it was hit.

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.

Like others have said, I think that a Vulcan would be the best option; you can get about 25 feet out of it, it's automatic, and you can operate it with one hand (I know, my middle finger was in a splint in a time that I was using it, I just held it with my arm on the bottom, but your friend's thigh could serve the same purpose).
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)

If you go with a magstrike or a powerclip, band the piston to slow down the rate of fire, to be able to get a better burst or sustained fire, rather than blowing the whole load at once.

With all of the blasters it would be nice to extend the trigger like a paintball double trigger for added leverage. You should also think about assembling maybe 5 marvelous salvos for his use.
Doing this as I speak. I have no idea when I got it...my DAD got it some 15 years ago, but that doesn't matter. Anyways, it keeps jerking around all over the place. I try to hold it with a rag...It doesn't look like...much.

I played nerf with my friend last night whose in a chair, but his is just a bog standard wheel chair so he had to wheel him around.

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 :D

I know I'm necroing myself here a bit but I wanted to ask for an opinion.

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. :)

I'd reccomend a Big Blast personally.

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.

I would go with the big blast. You can always take a turret from another gun if you want more rof. The longer range will help offset any disadvantage from the power chair. If you want to go the extra mile, you could create an external tank that would hang on the power chair.

I think the Big Blast would work. As others have said a turret would help a lot.

Turrets would be too finicky and if you want one-handed operation it would require him to put the gun down to rotate it. Use a hopper clip with cheesy's new "dart flap" thing.

That all depends on the turret really. If a Tek 6 turret were to be used, then yes, not good for one hand oporation. But if a Tek 10 and possibly a Fire Fly turret is used then he could just roll it on his leg to advance the turret. Now that I think of it, the Tek 6 turret could even be used with one hand. If the barrels are long enough he could poke his foot or something with it and give it a twist.

Well if you want exact same specs then I would suggest a supermaxx1500. Problem is is that they are really rare but I might know some people who can help you out though.

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.
