Nice finds FA. I was laughing my head off on the transformers one, which probably wasn't good considering that everybody's sleeping now.

To make this post not completly useless, I'll get started on the Wiki asap (unless somebody beat me to it) and I'll let you guys know when it's done.

In a documentary on genetics, the scientists had a nerf war in the office on film. They pretty much all had BBB's or wildfires. Me and my friend were laughing so hard in class.

Make sure the top of your gun is parallel to the ground when firing.
Finish those other mods so I have something else to read on here.
Now have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up. :)

In the show King of Queens one character (don't remember his name) pushed a button and a huge arsenal of Nerf Guns transformed out of the wall, and they actually said "Nerf." There were lots of N Strikes, and I think longshots and mavericks.


I saw that, but I think it was "According to Jim" Jim stayed at Andy's house and Andy has this arsenal of mainly N-Strikes. Also I saw a AT2K on the same show, different episode.

Any one remember GUTS? You know from like the early 90's. A few of the challenges involved NERF like the BnA, and some footballs. The Cheaper by the Dozen 2 DVD back cover has Eugene Levy holding and AT3K. Thats all I can think of right now or all I can remember.

Yes, you're right, I got the two shows confused.

Nerf sightings eh?
Here we go.


Married with children. I saw Peggy bud and kelly unload on Al Bundy with Ballzookas.

The late show with David letterman, I saw him on load on buttercup with a tommy 20.

In Andromeda, I saw Nichian warriors holding painted and fully propped out SM3K's. Looked very shiny. It was in this one episode that involved a lake.

I was just watching the bonus dvd on Gears of War and I noticed they used At3K's and At4K's in the making of the game. They attached probes to them and then digitally turned them into Lancers and such. Can you imagine a Nerf Lancer!
The guys who created Gears of war shoot each other with nerf guns randomly during the work day. Guns seen were a BBB, AT3K, AT4K and a maverick.

In camp nowhere I remember seeing an Arrowstorm.

I am sure I have seen more, will edit later when I remember them.


Funny you mention Andromeda.

Some of the Nietzchian warriors, Genites, and other random aliens use a really pimped out Vortex Tornado. I never noticed the SM3K's... will have to look at them again! ^_^

Didn't the 2 kids playing war or w/e in American Pie Band Camp have Comlinks?
They heard Stiffler yelling, "I'M TOUCHIN HIS ASS, I'M TOUCHING HIS ASS, I'M TOUCHING HIS ASS!".

Thanks penguin for putting it on up on the nerfwiki, it actually feels pretty good to have indirectly contributed to it.

Does posting in agreement somehow validate your standing in the community? Personally I think it just makes you look like a tool.

I just saw the new Ben Ten movie on Cartoon Network ( Which by the way blows, the show is much better ) and I saw what looked like a Buzz Bee Big Blast. It was one of the Plumbers weapons. I only saw it once but it looked like it.

In the Santa Clause 3, the little elf firemen have what appears to be an LBB attached to a backpack that sprays green goop to put out fires.

I think I just spotted an ERTL Rapid Fire Shotgun on Stargate: Atlantis (Season 1, "The Eye").

They do look a little different, though, so I can't confirm it.

I once saw a Sneak Shot on AFV. The kid opened it and was so excited to get it he fell over and knocked over the Christmas tree.

Last night on the simpsons, marge took away baby maggie's beloved pacifier and then maggie started to destroy everything in the house, and then maggie pulled out a reactor and started breaking all of the fine china. I know it was a reactor, It clearly was. The artists didnt acually put the nerf logo on it though.

Just discovered that there's an extended Nerf fight sequence in The Next Karate Kid.



Now go scrub your eyes for having watched a part of that movie.

The New American Gladiator on NBC has an Assault round in which Gladiators fire tennis balls at the contenders. The course features Counter Strike Weaponry, the farthest I saw anyone go was trying to find a Titan Rocket in a sandbox, then they got hit. But the tennis ball launchers have the Nerf logo on them as well as some of the barricades and shields.

Assault round (didnt find Titan rocket)

At Newgrounds, a user named Daani has created two games featuring Boltsniper's SCAR-N. I think this is the first dEffeminatetion of a home-made outside of the nerfing community. Does Bolt know about this?

I don't think the gun in Clear Vision is the SCAR-N.

I'm not allowed to go to Newgrounds but I will bet you anything that it's an AK-47 or some other gun similar to the SCAR. The SCAR looks similar to quite a few real guns.

That's sort of pointless conjecture, isn't it?

It is the SCAR...check out the stock, the pump action slots on the front, the ejection port, right down to the shapes of the elbow used to make the stock.
