Effects, special effects same thing.I dont think they would throw them like evil said they shoot from different camera angles and really fast to make something thats 25ft look like 50ft.
No, just effects. There's nothing special about throwing darts around.

I still think YakMan's theroy holds true. Nerf makes their guns excellent at the beginning, and they begin to think, hey, if some 6 year old shoots another kid with this gun in the eye or something, we might get sued. So instead of re-making the guns, they change the design by adding air releases and such. I mean COME ON, how many mods DON'T involve plugging a hole of some sort?
Nerf guns suck NIB. But modded they are good. But you guys remeber the commecials. The guns rock on those things. Awesome. Do you gus think HAsbro makes good guns at first and then wusses em out?
No, but I have a big [BLEEP] gun. That's good enough for me!
If anyone was wondering, I'm RoboNerfer from NO. And I'm U.n.c.u.T.! on NerfHQ.

Take the SM5k for example. Just simply rip off the air restrictor and the thing shoots 70ft. at least

Thats true, there was once a case were someone robbing a house got locked in the garage and lived off dog food and a case of coke he found in the garage, he won half a mil is his case, for his suffering.

Exactly. We can bitch all we want, but if the engineers wanted, they could make these guns fully limited, destroy modification as we know it. Something so easy as a small compression chamber, a faulty pump (as on the Super Maxx 3000 [Blue]), or a switch to cheaper, weaker materials. It's very easy for them, and yet they give us these easily modified guns that, as Famine also mentioned, don't look like some random jungle creature.
I've suspected for some time now (at least since the Larami/Nerf merger) that some of the designers might be on our side.
Yeah, we had someone who claimed to be that on... NHQ, I believe. I'm probably wrong.
Posted 23 February 2003 - 01:09 AM
But, yeah, Famine, I guess you could pretend the engineers and us are in cahoots if you wanted...
Posted 23 February 2003 - 02:13 AM
Well, they're either with us, don't care about us, or both. Because they sure aren't trying, with something so base as an air release valve...
It's only due to the fact that the desings for a nerf gun, particularly the cocking guns, are so simple we can modify them to be better.
I mean, they could always seal their guns closed. I'm sure that's cheaper than screws, and such an annoyance would certainly set us back a bit.
But the only thing they've "thwarted" our modifications with was the Piston valve system they use in their automatics: That, they do seal, making modification annoying.
And as far as I can tell, we never "established" anything. We never did ask anybody from Larami or Nerf about this... Did we?

When we were in the process of relaunching NO one of the multiple times we did that (Hal, Phelspar, X, and I), some guy contacted X and told him he had come accross the site for the first time. He claimed to be a retired Nerf Engineer with such guns to his credit as the Arrowstorm. Honestly, he seemed pretty legit at the time, but we lost contact with him, and eventually we we fell out of touch with X, who was the only one even moderately in contact with the guy..... and that was that.
Didn't we have an ex-Nerf Designer on here at one time? Maybe it was NO, I don't remember.

There was a topic over a year ago about this, either on NC or NO. Nerf doesn't have official engineers, they contract out with a company. I think it was the voweless one who dug the link up some time ago.
The air restrictor is there so the tank doesn't explode. That's not exactly safe.

That was an absolutely brilliant statement. I agree.
Unfortunately, as long as stupid fucking people win court cases for spilling coffee on themselves and other acts or brilliance, there will be crappy nerf guns thats to Corporate America and the Idiot Consumer Public.

He was pretty tight with the info. Didn't divulge the actual design specs that Hasbro supplied them with. Didn't divulge what was coming down the pipe. Did seem to have a special fondness for the RF20 which he apparently spent quite a bit of time working on.
