So about a week ago, I found out that my friend BustaDartInYOurAss had singled a titan, and it was getting beast ranges due to the pump being plugged. It was such an amazing gun I decided it was worthy of a name. I call it Chaos.

Everything in these first two photos was done by him accept the string/pullpin. The modifications done were taking out AR, CPVC coupler, plugged pump, and pullpin.
I then started working on my stock for it. I was looking around and saw Fenix' Chimera, and thought that it would be pretty cool to make my own version of it.
Here is Rev.2 pictures.

I knew that this was not worthy of a final product so what I did was make it even better. I redid the PVC stock by only using one piece of PVC and a glue stick to seperate the pump barrel and the PVC. I then wrapped it up in some badass purple E-tape, and added a longshot front gun trigger with much reinforcements.

The PVC stock works as a pump and I also made a side pump just incase one snaps off during a war. The PVC joint actually went right on to the pump wrapped in a bit of E-tape so I kept it. Last but not least I put a PVC end-cap on the bottom of the stock and it can hold two darts easily. The top piece of PVC can probably hold about 7 or 8, and you can easily remove a bit of E-tape to put an end-cap on. If it is liked I can create a write-up with just a bit of Busta's help.

Edit: Ranges are 120 to 160' flat.

Questions? Comments? Flames?

Pretty good. I don't think you will have a problem with the stock snapping in a war, as in most of those, singled titans are banned. I know fenixarth's chimera's pump wasn't plugged, but with 160 ranges, I can't see this thing being allowed.

Ranges are good, but it would probably have been better if you left it in the shell. It looks sloppy and fragile.

I've never really understood why people even take the guns out of the shells? I mean, if you take a spill, that's the first thing you'll probably land on, is your blaster. If there's no shell around it, it's gonna snap. Plus then you've got to worry about other parts getting snagged too...

Ranges are good but the shell makes no differences with ranges. I actually get better ranges with no shell for some reason. I believe it has something to do with part of the shell pushing on tubes, but I don't know. It's extremely sturdy. I expoxied almost everything and I can put a good amount of force on it. Of course it's more weak like this then in the shell, but still. This looks more badass. :lol:

I see where you're coming from, but it's just smaller, and simpler like this. If you ever see a titan in war that is singled, how many do you actually see with shells. I saw about 5 at APOC, and the only titan at DCNO was shotgun, and therefor needed the shell. I personally love it with out the shell, and it's easier to wield and pump.

Without any of the style or smooth design lines, yeah. It's just another singled titan that won't be war-legal anywhere.

Yeah i can see what you did. I basically did the same to mine and get same ranges, but I left mine in the shell. It's sturdier. :D

Dude if your going to be a dick just don't comment. It's like fenixharth's but with a pump handle/stock and CPVC coupler. It's my version of it. By the way it can be war legal, just unplug the pump..

Yea... I have a few things to contribute.

First off: You have already done the hard part of the Chimera mod which is attaching the LS front gun handle to the airtank... so why not just finish the mod? You can easily make a Chimera body in 10 minutes and mount the tank and pump to it in like 5 minutes. Also a lot more comfortable to use.

Second off: The Chimera is far better without the shell then any Titan with the shell still on for a few reasons. First the titan is way to big to use as a rifle comfortably also it is acward to us in such a way. the chimera on the otherhand has a nice feel to most people that have used a real rifle before. It is also smaller allowing to easier storage and doesn't hinder running. The Pump is also located in a weird spot on the titan that makes pumping it annoying and slow. The Chimera's pump is on the side and is easy to pump after you get used to the style which takes only a few shots. Also I build the chmeras to stand up to some pretty nasty spills that may happen in the course of a normal game as a standard; I also build C4 in such a way that in order to break it you would have to have to go out of your way to do it.

Yeah, one of the things I really like about the chimera is the abundance of PVC framing; it's a material I have a lot more confidence in than anything that came out of a Hasbro mold.

I agree with captain, it seems so .Well, bare. It's cool i will agree but it would look better as a Chimera. In my opinion.

The thing looks.....um.....unstable. Maybe you should try to support it in some way. You could use more PVC on the sides as a suggestion.

I'm going to say this once and once only. It's BASED off fenix' chimera, but the design of his is not fit to my liking. I like to pump the gun from the back, and it's more comfortable to me then the Chimera. I've used fenix' chimera at APOC, and it was great but mine is more comfortable for me because I have a damaged shoulder. This thing is fucking STURDY as hell. I made sure that I glued all over the PVC, and that it can withstand a fairly good amount of pressure. The point of this topic is to show has good Fenix' blueprints are. Everyone should make a basic Chimera, but customize it yourself which is what I did.

Yay! Chimera variations! I love it!

I live 20 minutes from Fenix, so I was one of the first few to try it, and they're the fucking best. They're a great design, I completely agree that everyone should try to build one. Leaving it unplugged is smart though, having them be battle-legal is important.

And while I'm here, I gotta say that using the Titan barrel was a great idea. It looks awesome with that in the front, and everything telescoping out in the front gives it a nice, slanted frame. A little bit less visible glue would be nice, but from how you hold it it seems like you wouldn't be able to see much of it.

Thank you, but keep in mind the actual titan wasn't created by me. It was created by BustaDartInYOurAss. I just made the shell, although I am working on a complete new variant rev.4.

I actually prefer this cosmetically to Fenix's. They are both formidable weapons, but I like this one more. I really hope you can make it to HbH so I can see this thing in action.
Slightly off topic: I find it kind of amusing that you, Bustadartinyourass, and his friend FERD all have xbows. How did you get them all?

BustaDartInYOurAss got on for his birthday; FERD I gave him my old one because it was broken beyond fixing for me and his dad was able to fix it so I just let him keep it; as for me well I have a job so I buy my own. One bought off Duce and two on eBay.

First: Ian, Nice work. Be careful with that thing, A little lower and Kevin would only have one eye.

Second: FERD's crossbow was fixed by me, Not his dad , just search "wooden crossbow head" and im sure you will find my breif but helpful guide.

Third: Also, I have a job too Ian, The reason im saying this, Just as you got the Lancer for your birthday, I got a crossbow for mine. Your saying it like me and ferd are spoiled, and that you work so hard for all your guns. Just like you, I buy all my guns.

:blush: Yeah, i'm currently working on a new universal barrel system, when I say barrel system I mean it can take shotgun shells, shoots the original rocket, CPVC, PVC. And I wasn't trying to say that you're spoiled, I was merely trying to say how we came about our crossbows.

I bought the lancer, and my crossbows with MY MONEY.

- NerfOnFier

For the most part, you seem like an alright dude, but I gotta ask...why lie about how you got a blaster? You told me in a pm (when you first joined) that the lancer was a gift. Then you said that you bought it. Now you say that it was a gift. Who cares if people think you're spoiled? I bet people thought I was spoiled too. I have 10+ guitars, 2 decent sized amps (65w Fender and 100w Marshall), a motorcycle, a car and tons of other crap. You know why? I have had a job since I was 10. I worked for my family's business (for $2-$3/ hr until I turned 15 and got a raise to normal pay) and made my own money. My dad only made around $22,000/yr, so I definitely didn't get spoiled. It is satisfying to know you have bought your own stuff, so why do you need to prove anything to anyone? If you stop fighting back and feeding the flame, you are going to keep arguing endlessly.
