Whether you get it or not should be based off of your playing style. What type of games do you usually play?

I would generally say it is not a good-buy. It's pretty cool to play around with, but is not overly useful in actual games. Most darts other than Buzz-Bee darts tend to fall out of the barrels when it is pointed downwards or when running with it. Additionally, it doesn't get notable ranges or accuracy. That's just what I say from my experience but it's really up to you based on what you intend to use it for.

It's probably the best gun. It it really good for snīping and gets like 120 feet stock out of the box, on full auto.

↑This.







But on a serious note, Do not waste your money on the Tommy 20, their is extremely little modding potential, and even then it wont be that good.

Okay that tells us a lot more about your playing style. Don't buy a tommy 20. If you already have a vulcan than I'd recomend getting a supa splat and couplering it.

You fail. Let me draw you a simple diagram:
Vulcan ROF >>>>>>>>>> Supasplat ROF.


I'd recommend a berserker. It's just a little less heavy, but the way the grips are (as in location), It's much easier to carry.

Please stop throwing stones at it, he's just renting one of mine.

Eh, if you get one, get the full auto. I wouldn't recommend one either way, but I hear the green (full-auto) one is best.

Vulcan ROF >>>>>>>>>> Supasplat ROF.

Thats exactly the point. A good pair of guns (in my opinion) has a good ROF, accuracy, ability to reload easily, and respectable range. The vulcan covers ROF but nothing else. Plus if he ends up shooting out his belts he's screwed.

If you want a mid range, light support rapid fire weapon the best options are the RF20 and Magstrike/Iron Man NRP blasters:

RF20

Magstrike

Iron Man NRP

These are all fairly compact with a high Rate of fire, and decent range and good mod potential if you want to get into that route.

Of the other options that you could considerVulcan, Raider both hold a lot of ammo, but are likewise both underpowered. The firefly and recon has less ammo still and is again underpowered.

A highly modded longshot with the Raider's drum magazine might be useful but that's getting into building a primary weapon.

If you really want to get into primary land take one of these babies and do this and that to it. That should give you more than enough range, and a fairly fast rate of fire, and more then adequate ammount of ammo as well as quick reloading.

Everybody else has pretty much covered everything, but I will say this: If you do decide to get one, definitely turn it into a pistol.

I may be a bit late on the reply, but honestly the Tommy 20 probably isn't going to be the best gun for your buck. For one, and this is just personal opinion, I don't like the enclosed barrels like that: they just take too long to reload. For two, it's battery operated, which means that you're going to be pouring money into batteries in the long run, which is just a bad investment. It's also my experience that electronics tend to be harder to modify, and that they also tend to die faster. For three, there's a new gun by Nerf, the N-Strike Rapid Fire Blaster CS-20.

Link

Target has it listed at $25.99, which is only $4.50 more expensive than the Tommy 20. The gun also appears to be more accurate, and while it probably has even less modding potential, from what I've seen, you won't need to do any modifications to it. And here's the kicker: it doesn't need batteries, and will clear all 20 shots faster than any other gun I've seen (easily beat out the Vulcan, though I don't know what the benchmark is).

EDIT: looks like everything I've said has already been said. x_x

If we're talking about just flinging foam, electrics can be modded to hit over 300 rpm. Of course, everything you said about battery cost applies, and there's the wear-and-tear on the internals. RapidFire 20s empty their chambers in 3 seconds (and you can go nuts with the Eyes of Fire.)

Back to the Tommy, the thing I don't like about it is the base engine. Flywheel blasters really can't be modded to be anything decent. They can shoot fast, but their design limits how much accuracy you can have. And then there's the noise.
