That is probably the most disappointing thing I have ever seen.

This is the range of the Vulcan STOCK! We're all saying it's crap. Pump shotguns have crappy stock range, and look what FA24 did to his.

Although you are right about pieces of crap being turned into usable war weapons. I just don't think there is that much we are going to be able to do. I mean look. AR removal = +15 feet or so. Battery supercharge = + 10 to 15 . If it works the way we think with the airsoft like gear and plunger system then it is going to be really hard to suck 45 feet out of this puppy.

Lets hope someone has better ideas then I do.

The lack of power in the gun is so extreme that, if someone farted, it might deflect all shots at them.

WOW. I don't think any of those darts went over 10ft or so. I think it is a waste of money. I will not even be looking at one until I get some reason to believe that it is not complete shit.
EDIT: Very powerful and very cool? MY ASS

We may just have to give this vid the benefit of the doubt, i mean, it's an expo, and no doubt that there would be heaps of journalists wanting to look at the Vulcan, therefore, i suggest that maybe the batteries were flat. Like jackster said, this may have been a really early prototype. The third alternative is that it just sucks. But we must give it the benefit of the doubt.

Hey did anyone notice this?

Lady: Its got two different fires to it. It has single fire and rapid shot.

That made my day. Now, I hope that single fire doesn't use batteries. That would save a lot of money.

The belts it has in that video look a LOT different than the Orange/Black belts we saw in the photos, so this could be an early prototype just for that expo, with shiite batteries

Between it being stock and pointed at the ground it's no wonder it looks pathetic.

Anyone remember how pitifully a stock Longshot performs?

I'm still hopeful with this blaster, we shouldn't have much trouble making it competitive. It's never going to be a long-range superweapon, but it might provide excellent suppression fire.

Actually, I was quite impressed with the stock range of the LS. This was before I was seriously into modding but still. I think that cmdrmak, you are right that it could make for good supressive fire, but I had this blaster or an unknown brand that got similar ranges to the vulcan stock. I did EVERYTHING I could possibly do short of making a whole new plunger assembly, and I got 30ft out of it. I think that is the limit to the vulcan's power.

EDIT: ON a happier note, when the first videos of the hasbro toy show came out, it showed a guy shooting this wrestling guy with it. I seem to recall he was about 10ft away, and the darts hit the wrestler with considerable force. I couldn't see the darts travelling in the air. Maybe the batteries were just low, or maybe they fixed the chains up with beefier ARs to limit it's power. That is easily fixed however, and it may yet prove to be a good turret for wars.

Most of your comments are correct, supercharge, ar's, etc.. But everyone is forgetting that theres a single shot. If you go on youtube and search uin13, he has a video called more on nerf 2008 or something like that. Here's the link:

If you look closely in every picture but especially in one, you can see a cocking mechanism almost exactly like one on the longshot. Check it out.

15,000 different people have already noticed the longshot bolt on the side. It is nothing new. If uin13 (or ice, as he is known here) has a video on it, the information is months old.

On topic: Speculation is freaking annoying. We'll know what it can do for certain later this year. Give it up until then.

Ice makes it sound like he is sooo good, when everyone had seen those pics a while before. I hate his vids, cuz they are nothing special, and he thinks he is as good as FA_24. The longshot cocking device is used for the single fire I guess. That is a good way to test the spring. My guess is it is the same spring as the LS, but im not sure.

...and I hate you, 'cuz' your spelling and grammar sucks. His ~100 'vids' are better than your zero. By the way, you don't know what the LS cocking bolt is used for (have you seen real machine guns work) and you can't guess what spring it is since YOU DON'T HAVE THE GUN.

Speculation sucks.

PS: Stop sucking F_A24's balls.

Im sorry I misspelt cuz. Im just saying that I don't really like ice's videos. I am not digital leg humping FA either. I am just saying that his videos are better than ice's.
I play COD, so I know how a machine gun works, you cock it, and pull the thing back to open the cover to insert more chain. In the vid, the lady doing the demo did this without using the handle.
Excuse me I have to go write a science exam. Wish me luck!

Dude, if you can make this go 80ft+, at least with single fire mode, while keeping the ammo belts... that'll be sick.

Though I doubt it'll get better ranges than even a Recon. I definetly want to get my hands on one of these regardless

Just seeing this video got wheels turning in my head. I've already started thinking of how good this gun can be after extensive modding. I also started to think, if this gun actually does make 80 feet, wouldn't it be a kill-joy at nerf wars. Sure people could still hit the person with the vulcan, but I just picture 6 people running around a corner and all being hit, and all walking off the field with a sad look on there face. Would special rules be made for that, or will it end up like the singled titan...banned from almost every nerf war. Then again, what do I know, this thing could just be a burden to anyone who uses it. Guess we won't know until someone buys it.
