that is insane. excellent job, and great write up. maybe you should talk to the makers of Gears of War 2, maybe they would base the new lancer for the game off yours? that would be awesome.....



Why would they do that if his was based off of the Gears 1 Lancer...?

Not to mention, if the game is being released in November (is that right? that's what I heard) it's far too late to go changing weapon models. Well, I suppose they COULD, but they wouldn't.

Now just to get one major thing out of the way. The breech system and plunger assembly are all the same as my original Longshot modification.


Also, read this. You might last longer here.

Hi guys,

Here's the official Gears of War Lancer offered with the upcoming Gear of War 2 game bungle, for $140.

Gear of War 2 Bungle with Lancer

(I searched the Mod forum and didn't see this post before. If it was, sorry)

The Lancer doesn't fire, it only has sound fx and lights, I think. I have to say, what a wasted opportunity! When will some toy company (Hasbro), airsoft, or even a paintball marker company, like Brass Eagle, wake up and make licensed nerf (foam dart) weapons based on our favorite games. I've mentioned this in a couple of posts on my blog. You see my fake ad for a Killzone Long Shot:

You guys have done some great mods, and far better paint jobs than my photoshop comp and i salute your creativity and talent. It's crossed my mind to form my own company and make original dart tag gear for older Nerf warriors. Maybe, someday I will. I'm working on my first mod and I'll post a pic soon.

So. what do you of the official Lancer? (Maybe this should be a new thread?)

Ok, bad idea. Videogame inspired Nerf weaponry is a bad idea and always will be. Hasbro simply cannot market their guns with the games you suggested because of the age demographic. Who plays with Nerf guns? Who plays GTA, Killzone, Halo and Gears? If you say they are the same people, then you need to have your head checked out.

Nerf is for little kids and us. We want videogame themed guns? We make them ourselves. All making game guns would do is bring more needless twats to our hobby who would say something like "DOOD!! I gots a NEw HA10 BLASTAHR!!!! Hows Does I mOddeded it??!"

Airsoft or paintball would be a better choice, as honestly, the people who airsoft are more of the "Shoot em up, die mother fucker" type... Same with paintball.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy CoD4 but targeting a Nerf line to gamers would make little to no money and would piss off the airsofters, and I don't know about you, but a 14 year old swearing at me would kinda bother me (considering Im to nice to crush their skull)

I have to respectfully disagree with BustaNinja, on this idea. First, I agree that Hasbro can't market Nerf older FPS gamer for fear of losing their kids' market and they really don't have to. The Nerf brand, in of of itself, is stronger than most video game properties. Being a "Nerf Dad", I'm very happy and satisfied buying Hasbro Nerf products for my 10 and 11 year olds, who can enjoy dart tag game play with their peers without any mods, what so ever.

What I'm suggesting is that, mostly from hanging out here, and viewing many nerf related videos on youtube, there is a large segment of nerfers who would like to have nerf weapons with stronger springs, better darts, cooler paint jobs and maybe look like something from their favorite FPS video game. A company, other than Hasbro, could make dart tag gear with the these, and modders, in mind. The equipment would be targeted for older, say 16 years plus, demographic and sold in "sports stores" not toy stores.

The simple idea that "Nerf is for kids", sounds the same thing that was said about comics and animation (and anime). I've worked in both fields and it wasn't until high school and college age audiences flocked to those medium that they took off.
Just look at this forum, the first thing people want to do is mod, or at least, paint new Nerf Blaster. That's not a "put down", it's observation . I think it's great! I love the sense of creativity and inventiveness evident here. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are probably a lot of guy and gals who don't have skill, the time or whatever to do any modding. So, why not give them a product right out of the box that's better than a stock "kid's toy".

As for the gaming connect. Yes, you run of the risk of having the same immature assholes who spoil online gaming, try to ruin nerf wars, but I doubt that would happen. In Nerf battles you have to show up and face real people "in the flesh", meaning you may get "banned" or just plain smacked in the mouth if you upped up. But on a business level, gaming is the hot market and the game companies need to expand beyond just selling games to survive. That why you see Gears of Wars and other game action figures in Toys R' Us. (That bothers me a little see this "Mature Rated" base toy next to the "G- Rated" toys). I'd like to see Killzone themed dart tag blasters or Mass Effect Laser tag blasters, why not, if marketed in the proper market and age appropriate setting.

My main point is that Nerf has progressed beyond being just a "kids' product". You see it in thousands of offices and college dorms. The next step is to figure a way to develop dart tag centers like laser tag, paintball and airsoft arenas. There's room for Dart Tag to grow as entertainment business. Safe well run places to play and hold Nerf Wars. Well maintained, standardized equipment. Some place that establishes a positive force in the community for family fun. That not a bad thing, if you really think about it.

(Maybe the forum mods would to to move this to a separate thread. I'd let to hear other opinions, too)

I hate for this thread to be hijacked, but since it's being hijacked so articulately, I'll have to add my 2 cents' worth. Firstly, NERF does seem wise to the notion that there are adults/teenagers using their stuff to enough of an extent that there's a seperate market there; just look at the new Eliminator ("Shoot your ex") blasters. Sure, they suck, but they are intended for things like office wars and assassins. The problem is that there is a huge difference between an office war/game of assassins, and an outdoor multi-round day-long war (the format in which this sport thrives). Office wars/assassins/HvZ are all far more mainstream than "nerf wars" as we tend to think of them. I could actually see Hasbro releasing game-based guns; however, I think that they would probably be Recons (or an equivalent thereto) in a gnarly shell, since nerf wars are the only game format that really demands a good deal of power in one's primary, and nerf wars are arguably the smallest/least mainstream form adult nerfery. Personally, I like to think that smart, responsible homemades are the future, as demonstrated by the work of people like Captain Slug and Carbon. That way, you get everything you want, bullshit-free. The problem is that not everyoneis ready to embark upon a project of that magnitude--but with X-bows hitting the $150+ mark, and Hasbro releasing things like the Maverick, Recon, and Vulcan, the prospect may get to looking more and more attractive. Plus, the degree of difficulty involved in building a SNAP-based blaster is far less than that of say, a Doomsayer or other complex mod. Am predicting the death of modding? Not at all (I'm no fool); but I think that it's more realistic to predict a shift toward smart homemades than to hope for a line of war-appropriate blasters to materialize. ~Rork

I like the idea of a Nerf line for more adult audiences, but if we are getting to that point, why not just go to Paintball of Airsoft?

Hasbro's main demographic is young children. Simply put, and sadly, Nerf has been taken to a more modern, tactical level. Look at the N-strike line. Revolvers, a belt fed machine gun, sn.1per rifle, single shot pistol with a modern look, the customizable assault rifle. Its all there, and the only step they could take would be to take away they bright colors.

Nerf is at the happy medium for product realism and child safety.

Making stronger guns would make the new class of stupid parents (No offense meant to you DFlyDen, as you don't strike me as stupid) get their metaphorical undies in a bunch because someone would get hurt.

We want em strong, we make em strong. If you do stock wars, then you gotta comply with the stock idea. If you demand more power, then thats what modding is for.

And honestly, I would much rather have a one of a kind blaster that I modded myself then a gun that looks cool, but everyone else can buy too. Modding is a major part of the hobby, and trying to take it away seems silly.

But if they were to release more batman stuff I wouldn't complain. Maybe some Joker inspired guns.

Hey laxboy, seeing as its your first post, I can understand how you could miss this. But its rule here that you're not supposes to post under topics that are about a month or older unless you have something to contribute. It should be ok for now, but just make sure you follow the simple rules here (lest you call down the wrath of VACC!), and you'll be on your way dude. Welcome to Nerfhaven by the way.

P.S. You could always send ForsakenAngel_24 a PM (personal message) if you have any specific questions on an old topic. :)
