I found this while searching around on Google for the Vulcan.

http://biz.yahoo.com...05229.html?.v=1

The interesting thing:

While navigating the 'Assault' course contenders must avoid getting pelted by balls launched at them from a Gladiator wielding a NERF blaster. The 'Assault' course features counter-strike weaponry including NERF branded air cannons and cross bows.


It said crossbow! They are going to use crossbows on American Gladiator. My question is, where would they get them? They could be those little off-brand orange crossbows, but they said "NERF branded", so I'm a little confused.

The sad answer is that the things on american gladiator are not consumer-availible nerf products. In fact, the only things you'll recognize as nerf are the logos and the titan missle. everything else is custom made for the show, and resemble large pneumatic homemades.

Alice came to the fork in the road.
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

I think I saw an eppisode where its just some gun that has been created by nerf only for the show. And if it was a Crossbow it would be spelt Crossbow, not cross bow.

EDIT: ZaphodB beat me to it.

It isn't a Nerf Crossbow, its basically just a air powered cannon shaped like a crossbow that shoots Titan Missiles. I've only seen one person get to it, and actually use it. They seem to have trouble fitting the Titan Missile onto the barrel.

Go on you tube and watch some Assault rounds, you may see some people get to it.

Edit: Everyone beat me to it...

Yah, most of the stuff that they use on that show is made for the show. In one episode they used a Nerf cannon that shot Nerf footballs but of course that will never be released to the public.

Sounds like a fun spud gun, though. Y'know, if your local nerfers allow ARTILLERY PIECES at war. ^_^

What are you talking about??? The new show had "Cross bows" on it! They had fake bow arms and shot titan missles. The anouncers called it a cross bow too! Also notice the space between cross and bow.
