Hey, Me and the MRD team from the Rock in the middle of the Ocean would love to say hi to everyone on Nerf Haven !

I'm new to the haven, and i have a couple posts here and there...

We have been Nerfing for about 5 years, starting when we were 7th Graders in Middle School, me and my team have a fair armory (comared to the people on here) .

We mainly play outside, we have had some inside battles.....but those were disasters. Well anywho this is how we play....

-2 Hits till death anywhere on the Body, (Except Head= 1 Hit Kill)

- Each Combatitant is only allowed, 1 Main Weapon, 1 side arm, and one melee weapon (PVC Sword and the Such)

- Once you are out you must return to the Gathering area and you must not talk to other "alive" players.

-Picking up weapons from other people is accepted only if it's from your team.

-Camelbak's are allowed as long as they are not being used to hide extra weapons (the people with them are searched before games starts)

-Raidos are used to talk to the other team ONLY in emergencies, and to signal the other team that they are ready.


Now some Gametypes...

Standard Deathmatch-
the standard kill eachother match, the teams are split up evenly and the match begins after the teams raido eachother that there team is ready. Match ends when one side is elimnated, if you are the last one on one side you can choose to surrender (but nobody does). this is Played at Night and Day

"Vietnam"/Or Convoy-
Where we play there is a Long Side walk that snakes it's way to the top of a hill, this is where this game type comes in. there are 2 teams of an equal number, one team is the "Convoy" (Or Anericans) they start at the bottom and have to make there way to the top (or vice versa). they have a "package" on a teammate, the package is usualy a box in a backpack (so you cant hide it). the other team the "Guerrillas"( Or VC) can Ambush the "Convoy" at any place form the start to the finish of the path. The "Convoy" team must walk up the path ( to prevent the event of the Convoy team cheating and running right off the bat), if they are engaegd, the package carryer can try to make a break for it (he usually dosen't get far). Super fun with alot of people. If the Package carryer is killed then the Guerrilla team gets the V, But if the Package carryer makes it to the end then the "Convoy" team wins. We have played this during the day, but we have yet to try night.

LoneWolf-
There are 2 teams and 1 "LoneWolf". The First team is the "Base Guard" They have a package that they must protect to the last man, there is one commander on this team, he can appoint people to certian postitions and draw out Patrol routs ect. But when the shooting starts they are free to do as they see fit. then when the Lonewolf retreats they must return to there asigned post (unless repostitioned to another place)

The Second Team is a band of "Rebels" they hide somewhere in the area, they are like an handycap for the base guard. if the LoneWolf decides to he can ask them to help him engage the guard in combat, destract them etc., the only way that they can fight otherwise is if the base guard find them and attack first.

The Lonewolf is like the "Spy" he must get in, take the objective, then make it out alive, as said before, he can have the "rebels" help him or he can fly solo, what ever the choice is, if he is killed the game ends.

Well thats how we do it here in Oahu, thanks for reading and have a nice day !

I love the convoy idea, I'll have to try that next time me and my friends nerf.

-2 Hits till death anywhere on the Body, (Except Head= 1 Hit Kill)


My friends and I tried that (along with other "realistic" rules for hits), and learned quickly that encouraging headshots leads to way too much trouble (a few of the people I nerf with, including me admittedly, are rather hotheaded). We ended up just changing it to 1 hit kills everywhere, gun hits count. It removes all the angry pissing matches that cut into our nerf time :cry:

Probably dead by now, or something.

It also depends on what type of modifications you play with. Once you have weapons that can fire more than 80 ft or so, being hit in the face at 15 ft becomes something of an issue.

Well for the Moding problem, we dont have much moded weapons, the one moded weapon we have is a AR-less Nite Finder...... as for the Headshot thing, we had one or 2 fights about it, but usually they just go with it.

Hey Nerf808,

I'm not as frequent on NH as I should be (working gets busy), but I'm probably old enough to be your dad, and I've brought the Nerf bug from Honolulu to the island of Molokai.

No clans, no real "official" settings, we play basic CTF and deathmatches, 3:15 hit rules or even one-shot kills to speed up the gameplay. We play with my children's friends and their parents, our neighbors, church groups, we even hosted a mini-corporate retreat to teach team dynamics and instinctive decision making.

I've been really inactive as far as playing here, like I said work gets busy, but hopefully with the summer camp season coming to a close, I will have some time to get all the arsenal fixed, repaired, and ready to play once again.

I'll PM you later about getting some modified weaponry your way, most all my materials came form Home Depot, so I KNOW there's one in your neighborhood. I need to order some PETG from the One Man Clan, so perhaps we can consolidate an order; PETG is (my opinion) the best barrel material for Nerf, mainly because of it's light weight (brass is a little better but front heavy; makes the front-ends of modified blasters a bit more breakage-prone).

If no one told you yet, I'm an advocate of air-powered Nerf, but we also have lots of springers (last acquisition was a couple of Recons)... I see the Vulcan has come out in stores now, so next trip I make to Honolulu I'll go check Wal-Mart for them.

Glad you Nerf. I know that many kids in Hawaii do (because the shelves at the stores are always emptying out), but it's good that you clan up and maybe get some more Hawaii Nerf going on. I hope to meet you (and your parents so they know I'm not Pedo-Bear or anything) soon.


Aloha,

-Piney-


**Yeah, I know, it's been awhile now. I'm back on idiot patrol.**
