Well? What do you guys think? I don't think this was posted before, so here you go. I think it sucks. Thats just me. Decreasing ranges, pumping is a bitch, and the reloading is AWFUL.

Yes if modded correctly... with a HPA tank.

The stock rf20 is great if you play a lot of indoor games on defense. It will be interesting to see if the vulcan replaces it all together.

I like my RF20. I don't really think the vulcan would replace it. The RF20 seems a bit more maneuverable and IMO easier to reload. Plus it's killer integration material, like Slug's Bobs or Lemmypoo's Gustaff (you might not be aware of this one, SS2 integrated to the RF).

I don't seem to have the problem with decreasing range. You do mean that the range of the darts decreases as you fire it and empty the tank, right? Because that doesn't happen on mine. I like my RF20, it gets good range and it's an automatic, so it's fun to rain darts everywhere even if you only need a few to hit someone.

I really like the rf20. I'm not crazy about the reload time, but it gets the job done when you want to take out a group of people. And as Shoeshine5 said, it really is great for indoor wars.

RF20s have always dominated at our wars; when they're present, it always comes down to which team has more of them. That said, I fully expect the vulcan to replace it. The vulcan has a more controllable rate of fre and a better reload time, as well as no manual priming.

RF20s are an entertaining gun, that if you can get the hang of using one... can be a useful weapon during a war.

Consequently... I don't know if this is new news or not... but it's the first time I saw one:

It's sexy, but ruins the appeal of the original RF20 paintjob, for the sheer reason that I love black and yellow paintjobs.
Damn you, now I must scour the wastelands in search of one!

No way, It can't be a N-Strike RF20 unless it has a tactical rail.
Fuck you Hasbro!
I love how No one has voted for the Buy a Recon option.

What's the point of giving the RF20 the N-strike label? Do they think that because it's now N-strike and therefore better somehow, that they'll sell more? It's the same thing, only different colored! All they did was add an "AS-" to the name, so it sounded N-strikey.

If another one of you shits suggests that I falsified that image... save yourself some trouble and shoot yourself in the face with a 2k... so I don't have to come find you and do it myself.


I may be proficiently skilled with Photoshop (I have 9 years experience, and yes that means I was using Photoshop at age 12) but I would NEVER use such a low quality photograph if i was going to edit it. 2, Note the "new" Toys R Us Logo... it's quite possible that this simply a new enough version that they haven't updated the website, also... look at my LONG STANDING record as a reliable member of the NIC and ask yourself..."Would Bags lie to us about something as lame/stupid as this?" if you don't have "No" as your immediate answer... you fail at nerf.

I can only think of one reason that nerf's done this and that's because they needed to assign the RF20 to one of their existing blaster lines... and I guess It fit better into the "n-strike" group than the "dart Tag" because they only had to manufacture One new version of the gun. Of course... there is one fundamental flaw in that logic... the big bad bow...but who knows? it may be next to get "n-strikified" for all we know.

Someone's a little testy. Honestly, unless they edited their posts afterwards, I don't really see anyone accusing you of anything. So, let me be the first. Don't come into my forums and fabricate images of previously released blasters under current production lines! THAT, is where I draw the line!

Personally, I love the RF20. I don't own one myself, but plenty of my friends have them. I mean, with a swappable drum mod, and HPA tank mod, you've got yourself one hell of a defender.

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.

No, its a 20 shot Maverick

I hardly see it as a Maverick at all, as the Maverick isn't a automatic and isn't an air gun.
Get a recon instead? Ya right!

Yowch, tough love for the Recon. 63 votes and no one recommended it.

I love my RF20, it is great for indoor wars. One thing that I wish was a little better about it, though, is its weight. I haven't minimalized my RF20 yet (In fact, it's completely stock at the moment) and it is annoyingly heavy. I like to carry two nerf guns at once to war, and it is a total pain to have to hold a bulky rf20 and make shots with a 2k at the same time. I have a Magstrike as well, and I have no problems with dual-wielding the magstrike and the 2k. I think modding the rf20 is in order in the near future...
