unless nerf has some how developed a miniature high-torque motor to pull back the longshot plunger that runs off of 6 D batteries then I doubt they are going to use a longshot plunger.

That's like saying that a computer and a toaster are the same because they both use electricity.


It's more like saying that two lawn mowers' motors are the same because they have the same starter cord.

It's an attenuated argument, but I just figured I would throw it out there.

unless nerf has some how developed a miniature high-torque motor to pull back the longshot plunger that runs off of 6 D batteries then I doubt they are going to use a longshot plunger.


They wouldn't need to develop anything. Adequate motors are already available for such an application.

One of the most destructive things to have on a public forum is PRIDE. When someone's ego gets in the way of good forum discussion, administrative action is needed.


Thats funny, because of a bunch of the mods/admins here have this problem.

I shit myself reading this. I don't know if anyone else is as excited about this as I am. I know practicality and everything but come on? Its a belt fed Nerf gun. Sounds full auto atleast and if the gun itself is fairly good then I would be able to re live all of my war fantasies Nerf style. It has real potential to be a BEAST and I strongly hope it will be. But then again, what do I know? I dual wield Mavericks for fucks sake. I can't be taken seriously or intelligently.

EDIT: Saw the pictures and I don't give a shit what you say. This gun WILL be part of my arsenal. I WANT THIS GUN!!!!!! I ALREADY FORSEE ME USING IT FOR EVERYTHING NOW.

Its not larger, it's just the angle and how close up the camera is to the gun.

Dude, I hadn't noticed that! Now I understand why it is looked just a repainted magstrike. I thought it might be NERF's version of Arachniphobia II.

All in fun.

I just have to /Counter your wammy:

As is your jealousy.


You're right, that's a freaking cool mask.

Now, To Be as serious as I can be:

I am going to throw in my two cents here and hopefully never have to mention it again.

To be honest the whole "Nerf, if you are reading this" was something I typed when I was really tired and a little drunk. Even then I thought it was a waste of time. In the past I have noticed several times where Baghead has made comments about my pride and ego all that jazz. To be honest I never really saw myself as some kind of cocky monster who's ego is bigger than anything. Do my forum posts really give off that cocky asshole vibe? I didn't think so. Then again I may be wrong and never noticed it. If I have given anyone a "greater than thou" attitude then I apologize as it was not the intention. Getting back to Baghead I have huge respect for his work the stuff he has come up with is top notch. I am still highly in love with Sicklefin. I will admit the comment "as is your jealousy" was very childish but it was an eye for any eye type of thing and I should not have stooped down to the fecal throwing level. I do not want anyone to turn this into a "Well I think so and so is a better modder".

Let this be the end of it.
Hopefully the next comment I read in this thread is someone posting a link about the Vulcan's commercial.


*Gives FA_24 a Big hug*

It's okay.... sometimes Throwing Poo in jest is fun right?


It's kinda like all the East V West stuff... we're all buds when we actually nerf together... no matter what level of trash we talk...

And FA if I ever get to play with you, I hope you don't take the fact that I'll probably Pull at least one Doc Holiday quote on ya personally... Because that's just how I roll.

I'm not calling you a big Egotistal freak... every now and then you do get a little carried away...Not to Deny the fact that you do deserve all the positive attention you get. all of your guns are awesome and I just hope siclkefin II can match the ever growing standard of insanity that's been showing up of late.

I also don't want to give anyone the Idea that I have something against Forsaken... I guess the fact of the matter is that I'm not above giving him crap, unlike many. And don't forget... this is the internet... serious business. Although I'm still a little insulted by the fact that it was a plastic bag in the Doomslayer Video... if you're gonna pwn someone, do some research.

To all of you who were about to back me in the event of an Effeminate Bags V FA24 throwdown... Um... I appreciate the support, but you're lame.


Now, on to the subject of the VULCAN:

I'm more interested in seeing this thing in person... And I can bet you all that If I buy/mod one... It won't stay yellow and orange for long. I really do thing it may be an interesting gun to play around with....although... the 6 d batteries are still not exciting me at all.

BAD IDEA. Car batteries are serious. You certainly don't need that much power, and neither lead nor sulfuric acid is fun stuff.

Except the power wouldnt be any different from a 12V battery, it just would have much longer life. Also, sulfuric acid is in the battery. As long as you arent breaking the battery apart, tis alright.
It's still a stupid Idea, a nice LiPoly battery would be cheaper, rechargable and a fuck ton lighter.

Extra ammo belts sound hella tight, something to hold my stefans in.
Hornet, I think that yellow box holds the shells after they've been shot, but that's just me guessing.

Read the thread first! Chain coming out of the right side of the gun is empty, The ammo box on the box is on the left side, So, It obviously holds loaded chain, I'm getting so tired of people who either don't read the thread, Or don't pay attention to right and left, And especially people who say the box holds spent chains!

Hope i didn't sound too bossy or anything, I'm just getting frustrated.

I think a box on the right side would be great. Nobody wants to run around with the belt hanging around. I mean you could trip on it, and if you play on concrete, like me, in a t-shirt and basketball shorts then you wouldn't like that happening.

Great, so make one and post a writeup. :P
a on a side note.. 'Oro?' kenshin?

a second side note to everyone- please excuse my lack of [/sarcasm] tag after the car battery post. I forgot that sarcasm isn't always readable on the interwebs.

I'll try. Yeah, it's from Rurouni Kenshin. It makes me wonder how well the seal is between the belt and the plunger. I guess we'll have to wait.

I read it when it was first posted. I'm not going to waste my time rereading it, and I could care less if I was wrong. It's speculation. We shouldn't even be speculating, but we were, and I was jumping on the bandwagon. I was wrong, boo-hoo, there is no need to get all prissy about it.

I thought that the orange box held the ammo, and that the yellow box on the other side would hold the empty shells. Again; I was wrong, but I'm not going to be sorry for it, and your post was wasted. You could have just ignored it. I probably should have just ignored your post, that would have been the mature thing to do, but I wanted to clear it up.

On a side note, and PARDON ME if this was already posted, but wouldn't the front of the gun be the equivalent of the orange cage on the front of a Tommy Mech 20, if the barrels are the chains? Or just like the extra barrel length on a longshot?
