Forsaken, I will mail you $20 if you can get the Vulcan to go over 100 feet.

Is he allowed to use a catapult?

Haha. That brought a couple images to my head. On a more serious topic, this gun is going to send a lot of noobs
the NH/NHQ way. I just hope something good comes out of that at least.

Ok guys, let's stop talking about the future influx of new members once the Vulcan comes out. They will be dealt with accordingly. Back on topic, and do post only if you have new info about the Vulcan.

Not to correct an ambassador, but isn't this thread for the speculation? Kinda like a SARS quarantine? Oh well, I guess you have the final say.

It was for speculation. Then the speculation got so rampant, and so extensive, that people just kept reiterating what was already said. Hence the discussion a little later in the thread about how the thread should just die unless new information is present. Normally threads like this end up like this; people speculate so much it just gets ridiculous and repetitive.

We don't do quarantines, we just kill all those who are problematic. That is the way of NH. Don't be a problem, you won't be suspended.

In short, yes, the thread was for speculation. But that was the first 30-odd pages of the topic. Now any further speculation is just ridiculous, because it's almost guaranteed that it has already been said.

Well, i did research too, on multiple sights. and this were some facts that i found
1. without batteries, it's basically a big-ass rifle, with one-shot bolt-action. if you look for pictures of it here, there's what looks like a longshot-esque bolt on the side.
2. it would need the batteries to advance the belt, it won't be able to use mechanics to do that. do you know how long it would take for nerf to make a full-auto belt-advancing system without batteries? it's probably a motor that is spinning constantly (unless you turn it off) and connects with the belt only when you pull the trigger, thus advancing the belt and firing. once you release the trigger, the motor-belt connection won't work.
3. captain slug: when you said "sounds heavy and awkward to me" my response is as follows: grow some cojones and go rambo-style with it!\ :P
4. it has a tripod, and it's probably a bit heavy, but that never stopped the spec ops b4, did it? :D
5. yes, when thinking about it, it seems a wee bit like the MT20.
6. the MT20 is an off-brand.
7. nerf guns not from 'nerf' or 'larami' suck.
8. have you ever known nerf to fail us? "have faith in thy guns. unless they're off-brands"
9. as with 'captain,' i nerf indoors. thus, i do small mods, not more than ar removal, plugging holes, cosmetics, etc. nothing drastic. in my house, the farthest distance a nerf dart will have to fly accurately is about 30 ft, which slightly modded nerf guns can easily manage. so i wont be doing much mods to this beast. it scares me.
10. does anyone know if the tripod is removable?? because it would suck to go to pick it up and have the tripod in your way all the time. :(

i have complete faith in the nerfhaven community to post write-ups of any mods (easy and hard) to this gun when it comes out in fall '08. :ph34r:
have a nice day

1. to 9. I could respond to most of these with a flame, but I'll resist the temptation.
10. Yes, it's removable, see the picture in Post #197 in this very thread.

Hope you have a flame-free day!

Woah! Spec Ops B4 must be a secret organization of the sort I have never heard of.

Back on topic.

The only weapon i see some resemblance in would probably be the Breda.

Also, a question: can the belts be connected?

Messiah - Is you can sew, then yes. You should be able to cut off the cloth connecting the last shell to the end piece thing on 2 belts, and then sew them together.

On the huge pictures, it does look like the belts are connected by cloth.

OMC please don't ban me. I was just answering a question.

I've heard that excuse so many times I don't even have any more witty responses to it.

Just because not only is that an overused excuse, but a terrible overused excuse at that, you're on thin ice. Fortunately, you seem to be able to post coherently, as proven by your second post. Keep up posts like your second posts, and I won't ban you. That's not to say that any other admin won't, but you might get lucky.

Don't fuck up again.

EDIT: You still don't get any protection for stupidity, so try not to post anything extraordinarily stupid either.

Well, it comes on a tripod, if it is good I can imagine it being a highly effective weapon for capture the flag, humans vs. zombies, and assassins. Let's hope it is air powered and not battery powered, that is if (big if) the 6-D batteries are only used for advancing the belt.


Yeah I'm not spending $40 on an electronic nerf gun.

Also if it's air powered, and uses a belt clip, chances are they will be a bladder.
If there is no bladder it will fire all the darts at once which is pretty gay.

Yo noob, if it requires six D cells, than its electric and doesn't have a bladder. It used a pneumatic firing system for single shot and probably rotary wheels for auto similar to the mech tommy 20.

The last post was on May 9th, a full 22 days earlier than now to post a question that was asked 3 months ago.

If you really felt the need to say something derogatory towards someone that posted 3 months and 538-ish posts ago, please go ahead and get ban-in-ated.

September, huh?
I thought somebody said it would be out in July...
But it's better than waiting until Fall, which is good, not to mention the fact that this is a solid, confirmed date.

mmm. I got the email too. I think I'm going to put my preorder in. Once it comes (hopefully early since it should be the first batch to ship) we'll all have all winter to work on it and explore it, no?

Alert FA_24, if he hasn't seen this already.

September, huh? Damn. However, they usually pad release dates, don't they? I mean, they said Spring 2008 for the Recon, and the first one popped up in what, January?

That date, therefore, is very probably a nationwide availability date. If they put "July 2008" there (probably the earliest it will be seen in some stores) they could be sued for false advertising for not having it in EVERY store by that date. So, I'm gonna say it's probable that we see this completely available in September, but probably see it in a few stores, probably on the West Coast, in late June, probably July, August at the latest. That of course is just my take, so take it cum grana salis, he said, sounding like the literary fag that Omega indefatigably was.
