When your primary doesnt work, try your secondary
When your secondary doesnt work, hit someone with it and check their primary
If their primary doesnt work, go on hiting poeple until you find a gun that works
If no one is left concious when you find a gun that works, leave without warning.

Carbine? Rifle? You sure we're still talking about nerf, right?
Clearify for me- What guns do you mean by Carbines and Rifles?

Don't want to shove balls in tight spaces. Trust me, bad idea.

For sale: Vintage WWII French rifles. Dropped once, never fired.

Out of the box Nerf guns are better, since they all shoot like shit and Nerf has better build quality, most of the time. Of course, if you don't want to spend lots of time modding them, the BBBB is about as simple as it gets for modding and is a decent primary.

"carbine" and "rifle" don't really work in Nerf. It's more like pistol, bigger than pistol, and fricken' huge.
ex: Nitefinder, Recon/AT*K, Longshot/BBBB

He's referring to a Longshot carbine, which is a shortened Longshot like the beautiful one I painstakingly broke down in my own write-up. Little shameless self-promotion never hurt anyone.

Anyways, BuzzBee blasters are generally lower-quality, have worse performance, and produce worse mods than Nerf blasters. They're made of cheaper materials, aren't as comfortable, have weird design quirks (DoubleShot) and sometimes use those janky shells.

The major exceptions to the rule are BuzzBee's air-powered blasters, especially the BuzzBee Big Blast (BBBB). Single-shot air blasters are the most powerful weapons you can get for a small amount of money and modding time, and Nerf doesn't make them any more. The Big Blast is cheap ($10), easy to mod, and ridiculously powerful (100ft easy). It's probably the most common blaster at wars and a great one to start out with.

Generally, Nerf blasters are more expensive, higher quality, have more complex mechanisms, and are more powerful stock. BuzzBee blasters are much cheaper, vary in quality, and are fairly simple to mod. I'd say to pick up a couple of Big Blasts or a Berserker and experiment - you don't really have much to lose.

Thanks, it sounds like the big blast is the way to go.

I feel that the manufacturing quality of Buzz bee is terrible compared to Hasbro. With that said I find that Buzz Bee has more reliable and better thought out mechanisms. So in the end I still prefer Buzz bee guns because I can reinforce things easily enough but I hate rebuilding the guts of a gun because one of a large amount of parts has failed or become worn due to complicated nature of its design. I play several games of HvZ at school a year and the only Hasbro produced gun I use is a night finder. The rest are Buzz bee because they almost never misfire or jam.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?
