Technically, outside the US, the term Yank or Yankee is referring to anyone from the US. Leave it to secessionists to take offense with a generic term that THEY have deemed to use in a derogatory fashion. I am indeed a Yank, though in my town, we prefer the term Salemanders, and no it is not misspelled. It is a play on both the name of our city, and our preference for a wet, cool climate.

Hey, don't blame me. I assumed that's what you colloquially known as. My apologies if it's not so.

To rephrase - You AMERICANS will get it either the same time, or maybe a bit early.

And Schizo, I agree with your stock comment. I will be throwing it in my box of bits as soon as it arrives.

As a yankee (both continentally and globally) living in a southern state that borders Texas, I say, don't mind him... Texans have issues, which is why they claim everything is bigger and why they have such a hard time getting along with others :P

That's alright then.

Back on topic - The paint scheme.

Does anyone think they will actually make the digital camo properly? Or am I gonna have to paint it on?
Also, I wonder if they might do a red and black one, like the new recon (ps - can someone please post a pic of that please!)

The "digi-camo" just looks like they made random squares on the shell have a rougher texture. You can see it in a few pictures people have posted.

And don't worry, nobody besides that guy cares if you say yanks.

EDIT- check pics 7&8 in the first post to see what I'm talking about.

I wondering if it's like that because it may be the prototype. The one for the shows that isn't quite finished?
The possibilities....

Probably somewhat like the vulcan box that has a (not very, but noticable) different paintjob.

Personally I think this gun is going to be pretty good. Anyway, even if is bad then we still can scrap it for parts and the drum mag. I think Nerf is making guns these days look cooler, have better stock ranges, and less modability. This one looks like it has a lot of potential.

The yellow balls are also slightly smaller in diameter than the green ones.

You're, what, the 20th person to publically state this?

Yes, the guns look cooler. Yes, their modification capabilities are low. However, their stock ranges suck. We saw the video. That dart dropped almost immediately.

I, myself, coined it,
"The more badass it looks, the more it sucks."

Snippet
nature must have been kind to this guy;s body cause the ladies sure as hell aint flocking to his brain

And the grammar sure doesn't be flocking to yours. Shape up, please. It's hard to read when you don't know where a sentence ends and where it begins. I'm saying this for my own personal benefit. Speak English, for God's sake.


Sorry, the lack of brain must have rubbed off on me. It's infectious, you know!

back to proper speculation:

The prospect of painted camo is a very distinct one, but I wouldn't dare call it probable. If recall correctly the box labels the dartgun as the CS-35 RAIDER, while the barrel marking still carries the CS-6 designation. One or the other is likely to change, simply for consistancy. I've seen companies go with texture alone, and I've also seen some go the with multi-color treatment on thier products wehre it wasn't "neccisary". One would hope for proper 3 color camo, even if its a color scheme that is completely useless as camo.

meanwhile back on the ranch:

I do, as a man that has lived on both sides of the Mason-Dixon, find the term "Yank" a bit offensive, for a couple reasons. One is the obvious geographical relevance of it. Another is an often forgotten aspect of theAmerican Civil War, which was the battle over a member state of the union's right to self determination, a right I personally believe should be upheld. Yet another reason is a difference in attitudes, something you could only really experience for yourself. Then again, the whole affair is much like calling a Scotsman a "limey". It's simply inaccurate on such a level as to be comical.

Having done my share of travelling I've returned to Texas by choice.

I just get the feeling that it'll be blue with some variation on the current paintscheme, and that it'll end up yellow later.

Isn't that what's happened to all the blue N-Strikes so far? Even the Longshot's getting yellow treatment.

The digital camo'll likely just be the texture, although one must realize that different textures appear differently in the light. They have different reflections of whatever light hits them, so you'd get a glare for your camouflage.

Genius, isn't it.

That's not true in any way.

How so?

The Recon looks pretty cool, yet it has horrid performance.
The yellow Longshot looks better than its blue variant, but it still manages to suck.
The Vulcan looks amazingly badass and intimidating, even (So far as a Nerf gun can), but it has the most issues I've ever experienced.
Maverick. That's all I have to say about that one.

And we all saw the video for this badass-looking mother. Those darts were dropping at 15 feet, maximum.

I mean, I'm definitely gonna get it for indoor warfare, but I wouldn't dare take it outside.

I don't think it's just dropping I'm pretty sure that it's bouncing off the wall or whatever the kid was shooting at.

Those are all opinions (which guns look cool) which are not even close to being universal. How a gun looks has absolutely nothing to do with it's performance, one way or the other. Crossbow, titan, nitefinder, and SSII.

Let's take this to PMs.
