Greetings.

First of all I would like to say hallo to the nerfhaven community.


In a month I will participate in a 40k LARP event.
But I realy need advice about which gun I should take.

Our event will be outside, together with the fact that I live in holland dousn't help either.
I need a gun with a decent range, preferably with a Foam dart magazine. (estetics)

I will gladly mod the gun if it makes it better.

I hope you can help me out.

The most popular gun for LARP usage is the Longshot, mainly because it has the features you want in both function and appearance.

For a list of modifications of that particular gun see: http://nerfhaven.com...?showtopic=7527

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

Being as you're going to be LARPing 40k, have a look at the gun that comes with the Disk Shot game. It's like a less boxy Boltpistol. Apart from that, I'll have to agree with CS on this, the Longshot would be the way to go. Or, if you're going to be playing a Guardsman, the Rapidfire Rifle by Buzzbee looks a bit like a Lasgun, albeit in day-glo colors.

An N-Strike Scout or Dart Tag Crossfire with the ammo holder sawed off are good LARPing pistols.

I'd second both the Scout pistol (it looks a bit like the pistol carried by the Vindicare assassin) as well as the Diskshot pistol. If you paint a Longshot it could easily pass as a Lasgun (Imperial guard weapon), or Pulse rifle (Tau Weapon)

Thanks for the help guy's.

I have looked up all the guns you mentioned.
They are all sweet but I am going for the double shot.
This is becous I love the appearence of the gun.
I am a Medic in the LARP so that would justify the unusual weaponry.

I am still searching for a hand pistol with a mag.


Thanks again.

If you want a clipped pistol, your only option currently is the Buzz Bee Clip Tek. It looks pretty weird, though.

If you're already playing a 40k larp, the cliptek has the added benefit of actually looking like a bolter. Its not a terrible gun for larping, either.

This is gunna make me sound like an idiot but what exactly is larp? I get the basic idea, but is it a scripted, planed out sort of thing, or just role playing? wouldn't that just make it nerf with a theme, like the scenario paintball of nerf?



sounds fun,

Stands for Live Action Role-Playing. Means there are rules, but everything happens in real time as players act out what their characters do. Usually things move much faster than in a tabletop game as you have less time to decide what to do, i.e. not as many time outs, rewinds ect.

I used to play in a larp in college, they are fun and can be more or less combat heavy depending on the people running and playing the game. Often there is a lot more going on than just shooting people, where diplomacy and subterfuge are required.

Also as for guns that might work well. Do you need worry about size/concealability?
If not the LS is a good choice as mentioned. I'd also say you should look at the mag strike as a rapid fire close range solution.

I would have to say you should use a nite finder or a diskshot. Its pretty easy to make a nite finder the size of like a small handgun. Call me a noob, but I didn't know what a LARP is until I read that quote. But probably use diskshot, I mean, A nitefinder and a disk shot have like, the exact same plunger and spring.

That would work, but he wanted a pistol with a magazine.
