Or, even better, combines it with a longshot AND a titan, to create the Unity ULTRA System!
$10 to the first person to integrates it into a longshot?

I think you're confused. There's nothing infinite about batteries.
It would be like an extended clip magstrike, but with an infinite bladder (battery).
And unlike batteries, you can much more easily "recharge" a pneumatic tank with muscle power.
I would prefer to have seen them come up with something that doesn't involve a belt and is driven by pneumatics. Hopefully they replaced the old chain design with something much more durable. I'm still not keen on the idea of a chain feed system though because it makes the resulting blaster rather awkward.

I mean, If I want to carry around something bulky that uses up 6 D batteries, I'll bring my DG-20 with me, because then I'm Da Boom King!

Don't call it a comeback, I never left.

Sounds gay, I hate batteries. A airsoft battery would be way more efficient.
If its as bad as it sounds, maybe you could hide in the shell and pop out!

I see this gun as being situationally amazing. Though I wouldn't use it for assassin when i'm raiding a house with 1-2 targets in it, in situations where multiple targets are present I imagine this bad boy's room clearing ability will be valuable.

When I say the battery part, I was pretty pissed.
But I guess there could be potential, batteries don't automatically mean something like the Tommy 20. It could pull back a plunger like in many Airsoft guns. The only real way to find out is to just wait.

Batteries? Makes me sad.
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

EBF = electronic belt fire?
At least Vulcan is a cool name.
"25-dart belt-fed fully automatic blaster...Six "D" batteries are required (Ages 6 years & up/)"
This gun will be weak. Flywheel gun + chain to jam + 6 year olds safe = weak gun.
Like the one on the Longshot? Because the Longshot used the same wording. So I am thinking that the chain will go in the middle of the gun with tripod and fly wheel in the front and batteries and trigger in the back.
"Tactical Rail System"
They are sure pushing this on all of their guns; maybe they are going to release a red dot scope in a pack like the green dot tactical light?
"Approximate Retail Price: $39.99/Available: Fall 2008"
$40 bucks fits with Nerf price scale for a gun that is electronic and large.
Also the fall is a long time away.
Lets hope they have something better coming out at the same time or that the chain works on the older chain guns.

It's also not certain that this will fire via a flywheel, SPU-Nerf. It's possible, but I really hope it's not.
I think the concept of this gun sounds great for indoor wars. I'm sure it will be a lot of fun for people playing games like HvZ. As far as for those who Nerf in the outdoors, I doubt it will be of much use.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.
Posted 14 February 2008 - 09:48 AM
I think that it will be like the speedloader in that the batteries bring the plunger back. But anyway, if not, there are still a good number of ways to modify electric guns.
You know what... I know it's kinda late... but Props Cole.

The more I Nerf the more I'm considering the underlying premise of this weapon to be counterintuitive to the spirit of Nerfing itself.
I think that the same thing will happen here. Too heavy a gun, too big a ROF, too impractical.
I pity the fool who attempts to use a single-shot blaster against me.

$39.99 too expensive for an electric blaster? Many of you parents spent fifty bucks on the N-Strike Disk Shot when it came out; basically a NiteFinder with a different shell and electronic doohickeys... so cost isn't a factor for you pee-wees who beg and plead with Mom or Dad for funds.
The skinny is simply this. From a consumerism standpoint, it may turn out like when the first N-Strike Unity Power Systems came out... much anticipation, and to our delight, good, sound blasters (even the Scout is fair)... and everyone liked them.
Or it can turn out like the debut of the Firefly and Dart Tag guns, a bit disappointing (Firefly), but satisfying (Dart Tag system), and everyone still buys them from time to time.
It can turn out like the Longshot, a tad pricey but still having everyone's desired attributes (clip-fed, bolt action, douche bag pseudo-assault rifle look), and despite needing more than amateur modifying skills, is probably one of Nerf's popular and better-selling items.
Look at the Recon. It's proof that Hasbro's engineers are astute to what their consumer base is talking about, and their R&D team is doing their homework. What I'm saying is when it comes out, either you'll like it, or you won't, but bottom line is many of you will be buying them anyway, and that's what's important.
Who knows? By Saturday everyone might be able to see what the Vulcan looks like and make even more snap judgments about it until Fall. Betcha most of you buy one when it's released.
This old guy pretty much stays "old school". All the new releases I buy for my kids. SuperMaxx and AirTech series all the way!

He was quoting my post which was actually my own comments concerning the impracticality of my design. I'll wait to form a complete opinion when I know more about how the Vulcan actually works, but my intuition tells me that it's not going to be a terribly useful weapon for typical Nerf Wars. Like you said, geared towards the purchase motivations of the average consumer and not us.
Cap'n Slug's post notwithstanding (he feels it may be counterintuitive to the spirit of Nerfing, he didn't make a judgment call on the blaster itself).

Most likely. They advertise the Longshot as the longest (and it is), so we know that they take their superlatives seriously.
Interesting, Nerf markets the Vulcan as the biggest baddest blaster ever. Is that to be taken literally?
