Well I can't exactly do a barrel replacement, unless you can count a crayola a real barrel. plus I have about $20 for springs... Also, I would like to have a decent secondary.

so here they are...

-BBB
-Double shot (shell-less)
-AT3K (crayola, pump-plugged)
-RFR (shell catching)
-Maverick (AR removed)
-Nitefinder (AR removed)

As someone who is going to be there, I would go with the BBB. If you can get yourself to basspro and get a ERTL pump action shotgun, do. You are going to be up against multiple doomsayers, xbows, and high powered airguns. I would reccomend getting something that shoots far. It is worth the money.

Agreed. It does depend on your play style, but the BBB + NF combo should work well assuming you've replaced the BBB barrel (you didn't specify). If you need more RoF, you can always switch to your Mav, so bring both, but my cpvc couplered BBB with Disk Shot Pistol is by far the best gun I own.

That's your call. Do you think you'll be fine with just the NF, or do you think you'll like using the Mav more. As it has been so many times, the guns you use depend on your play style. And yes, add a spring to the bbb.

Wow, I would have picked the AT3K, but yes a BBB would be good aswell. The AT3K could be your secondary but it is a bit big so go with the nightfinder.

Why would you use a BBB when you've got an AT3k? I think you should brass/petg your AT3k. I mean when it comes to ROF and range trade-off the AT3k is your best compromise - and the range you should be getting from a good AT3k should be somewhere around that of a BBB...

I think you should brass/petg your AT3k.

He said that he can't do anything besides crayola barrel.


Long answer to original question:
I honestly don't know you would get more range out of (crayola BBB or crayola AT3k), but choosing one over the other really depends on your playstyle and (to an extent) the field that you are playing on.

If it's possible, I would suggest modifying the AT3k, BBB, and NF. If you've removed the Mav's ARs, that's just about all that you can do with it.

It seems that you are pretty new to nerf wars (or maybe you aren't; I can't be sure), so I would suggest taking all four of the blasters I mentioned and just try things out. Play a round with the BBB and Mav and/or NF, then try a round with the At3k and NF.

The Mav will help counter the BBB's lack of speed, while the AT3k will benefit more from the longer range of the NF.

I've never replaced a BBB spring, so again I don't know how much the range will improve.

I definitely advocate making your NF the best it can be: replace the barrel and spring (and/or add bands). A good NF serves just about any nerfer well.


Short(er) answer to original question:
If it were me, I would use an AT3k and the NF; You'll probably be out-ranged even if you use the BBB, so rush them instead with the high rate of fire that the 3k provides. Still, take the BBB in case the AT3k breaks.

Personally, I'd take the At3k and the nitefinder.

The chances of one person taking a bomb on a plane are one in a million. The chances of two people taking a bomb on a plane are one in a trillion. So if you're scared of a terrorist attack, bring a bomb on a plane.

Bring everything you have here as long as its nerf.
Mod it to the tits and you should be fine.

When you get there just ask around for me, I will be bringing guns for others to use, like nitefinders with SSPBs, a few primaries, and a few other secondaries.
