I think that we shouldn't get the idea "m@n we'11 0wn teh g00bers cuz wE c@n m0d r3c0ns!" Becasue after all, no modded gun will be allowed, and what advantage do we have? Sure being to wars will help, but this will be totally different.

Also, it seems that they've been reading the boards and are expecting people to sneak in modded guns.

Teams must submit themselves and their equipment for inspection in
the staging area and on the field of play. Team members must use only the
approvedequipment, supplies and vests during match play.



If they did let us bring modded guns we would have to use stock darts. :mellow:

Ryan- Could you weigh the balls for extra oomph? Maybe cut one ball open (like a slit) and spread it so you could get some weights in there?

Heard this from the event promoter:

"Thank you for your email and interest in the NERF Dart Tag World Championships at the Dew Tour, June 26-27 in Chicago's Grant Park.

Next weeks event in Grant Park is FREE to enter and experience the NERF Dart Tag World Championships. Below are the basic rules and information for the World Championships. If you're over the 17 years of age you can still experience the NERF Dart Tag set-up in Festival Village you just won't be able to compete in the World Championships."


Free to enter? Sold! Regardless of whether I can play in the tourney or not since I'm well over 17, events like this are so few and far between no? Especially sponsored by the parent co. Anyway, I'll be checking it out next week.

Make sure to bring a camera incase they show any of the new guns.

Even if I could go, I just got too spoiled with my modified weapons. I shot one of my friends unmodified nitefinders and I thought it was broken. :mellow: Also, nerfing with goobers sucks. Trust me, I used to babysit a bunch of "Pro-Nerfers". There is just no way I can fight with goobers and with stock weapons again unless something is going on and I'm forced to.

Just an update on international nerf events, Singapore will be holding its official Nerf Tournament 2009 event in August. Seems it'll also be part of the Nerf Dart Tag League (NDTL).

Check out the official Tournament Website: http://www.nerf2009.com.sg

Interestingly, the tournament in Singapore has an "open" category, for participants aged 8 - 55 yrs old! :lol:

But not in America, where Nerf and Hasbro is based. WTF? Though I suppose it doesn't affect me either way, because I'm not over 17 years old.

Hey all!

Ok, day 1 is over! I'll go over more stuff with videos and pics in following posts and on my blog but for now...


The Furyfire.

It was the weapon of choice for the day. We knew about the 10-shots, but I can confirm the blaster is a springer. The pump-handle rotates the cylinder and primes the blaster. Pull trigger to fire. The cylinder DOES NOT flip out to reload like a maverick. You have to put the darts in by moving the cylinder until an empty chamber appears. I didn't look like you could move the cylinder without the pump-handle moving as well. I had only a few minutes to get briefed on the rules of engagement and fiddle with the blaster before the round started. Also, they only had the Furyfires INSIDE the battle area, so I had to leave my camera behind when I finally got my hands on the furyfire. I'll hopefully make it back to the Dew Tour for Day 2 and finagle some pics.

Ranges: Stock, maybe 20-30 feet.

Handling: Mine misfired a couple of times, but I was in the 2nd to last scrimmage for the day before they prepped for the main tourney. Chances are, mine was janked a bit from previous users. It was definitely a good size though and natural to hold. Not too small at all.

We also used the new "flags". The canister is about the width of a titan barrel and just a bit longer than the switch shot firing shell.

There's probably a bunch of stuff I'm missing right now, but more to follow as I am hella tired.

Well I'm glad someone got in. How did you do in the tournament, if I might ask?

It sounds like he was just playing in one of the open scrimmage rounds. Still sounds pretty cool though. I'm so glad to hear that the cylinder rotates independently from the trigger, turns it into a buy new instead of a wait for Goodwill blaster for me.

It's true! I was in an open scrimmage. There was something about the long barrel that made me feel my shots were just more accurate, too. The people were pretty cool, so keep an eye on the NDTL page though for any of the footage they shot of the scrimmages, for sure. Free swag too! I highly recommend if anyone has a chance to go, to do so. I mean, it's free to get in so what's the worst that can happen, right? The amount of cover made playing with newbs not so painful.

I did indeed make it to day 2! The Nerf folks were nice enough to let me actually step inside the dome as non-combatant and take footage. I also wore the action cam, and I'm pulling the files now. One of the files I'm trying to save, but another one did indeed make it off the camera. Lesson learned: I need to place the camera on my shoulder, as the head placement was a little too high at times. Anyway, more later!


I took some closer shots of the fury fire, and once my camera's charged again I'll get those posted. Write up and all that good stuff to follow. I normally do updates every thursday, but be sure I'm going to knock this stuff out sooner than that.

here's a photo in the meantime. Yes, that IS the flag. And from what I saw, they're built for abuse.

It was a small area to play in, but that was the beauty of the whole set up. Up close and in your face, even moreso than when I'd be running into/away from a PAS or a +bow. The tents in the background were part of the larger Mt. Dew BMX/Open set up. I've put up a POV vid of the interior, in case anyone hasn't checked the Nerf video directory yet.




More thorough write-up and scrimmage footage later this week!

...Holy shit, this picture doesn't evoke a response from ANYone? This gun has AWESOME potential.

Just from this picture there will be AT LEAST six total slots for a rear-loading turret.

After talking to Liter, the turret locks like on an AT3K after one priming motion. Pump addition? A cinch. Big Salvo or AT2K tank can easy be put to use.

Hell, even keeping it a springer would be great. Plunger draw looks to be about two and a half to three inches which is certainly adequate.

Brian, fucking sweet video and pictures. I know I've told you it before but this is really awesome. Looking forward to the finished stuff.

I can't believe those things are springers, I thought for sure they'd be air powered. Nevertheless, they look cool and should be decent at least.

Agreed, I am COMPLETELY let down now that I know they're not air guns. I was seriously hoping for another SM1K, but I guess not. We can at least hope they don't have a reverse plunger.

Man, don't let the spring fool you. This still feels like a solid blaster and a good replacement for the DTB. It felt hell of durable, besides any mechanisms that might have failed when I tried the blaster and the accuracy was pretty tight. The pump-action alone made going down that field a solid experience. No telling about the reverse plunger tho, sadly I didn't have a screwdriver nearby to quickly open up one of them, hah.

Thank you for the pictures and video. This looked like it turned out pretty well. I hope to see more competitions like this in the future.
Also, the inflatable cover and close quarters reminded me of a paintball arena.
Was there a limited amount of time you could get hit? And how long did the games last on average?
