How much will the Titan screw on barrels be? And may I give you a cyber high five? I have wanted Stefan rockets all my life, since I am a bazooka man (headshot on coop from 120 feet away)

Eraser is correct. There is also a another option with more rockets. I haven't exactly decided the individual cost of the Titan barrels, partially because I haven't finished them, and it will depend upon whether my really snazzy idea pans out. Stay tuned. They will probably end up around $5 each, plus shipping.

Good news everyone!

The kickstarter campaign has reached 70% of the require pledges! We are doing great! The surprising part is that there are only eighteen people who have pledged support so far. Please help! If you are at all interested (as many of you indicated you were), then now is the time to help! We only need another ten or so people pledging in the very manageable $15 range to make this happen! If you are interested, but don't see a reward you like, let me know and maybe we can put together another level.

Also, one more announcement: Anyone who pledges their support during this campaign (assuming it funds, of course) will also receive free shipping on any and all future rocket and related equipment orders.

I will not pledge cause I'm broke. Also I recommend you, instead of using a different barrel for the titan, make different calibers. Good luck though!

No. The stock Titan barrel has a ridiculously large amount of dead space. The replacement barrels reduce that and also allow for interoperability between blasters. If everyone using rockets uses the same barrels, then they can be fired by anyone on the field. Also, creating different calibers would require additional minimum order quantities for the additional sets of materials.

I agree. If we get a firing video, I'll go for 10$, I just dont want to buy them, to discover they shoot as far as arrows(I have lots of them), because then I wouldnt really need them. I'm not saying I doubt your word on the ranges, I just would like to see a video.

Sorry about that. Every time I have a chance make a video, it has been raining. It's getting a little depressing, honestly. I am going home for lunch today, maybe I can set up my camera and do it then.

Small update, as requested, here is a picture of the completed prototype screw-on Titan barrel. It is rough, the mold needs work, but it works. I don't know why I only have one, crappy, beat up rocket here at work, but it still fires 50+ feet from a stock, leaking Titan.

I made a video testing out the missiles I got from Drac. Kane is filming, but has tendinitis in both his wrists, and I refuse to edit video at any point ever, so here it is, raw. There's a good shot at 2:10 and an even better one immediately after it at 2:40.

Thank you for the awesome and hilarious video, Ice Nine! Also, an update is in order! We are so close to hitting the goal mark now! There is only $19 remaining to be pledged before we hit the goal! Thank you to all of the contributors. We just need a couple more people and we will be in business.

I think we made it, guys. It says $575 :D



Yep, we have now reached the goal! There are still thirteen days remaining, so feel free to continue to pledge, as all contributors will still receive free shipping on future orders as well. Thanks for your help so far, folks! Time to make some phone calls.... Woo!


EDIT: Ooops, I guess someone bailed while I was writing this. Oh well, let's keep working on this!

ALso, I am trying to source materials like this for reproduction Ultimator/XXL Bazooka rockets, but the only place I have been able to find them is by special order at about $2 each for just the foam tube, with 150 pieces minimum. If anyone else has seen, in any capacity, foam tubes with about a 2" ID, please let me know.

I know I've seen fairly wide foam tubes at Dollar general; I'll have to check tomorrow what the ID is. Will let you know!
