Here we go folks! The new Nerf Elite Mega Centurion is a new Sub-Range of Nerf - Mega. The Mega Centurion comes with a new tech-smart bipod + new never seen before internals.

It's rounds are roughly 1inch depth by 4 inch in length. They come in new MCS-6 round Magazines.

The size of this blaster is in length 1.5metres long. It took a sharp dev turn since feedback has been intense (thank you all fans!) and replaces "failed" LongStrike and LongShot blasters.

It will retail for around £39.99 - in a bid to make Nerf more accessible to all pockets.

The tech-smart bipod is fully collapsible for heavy weapon deployment and automatically clips up when you are on the move. It's really awesome.

The Centurion uses a complete new never before seen internal mechanic system. The Super Plunger Tube (thanks to modders) has had an overhaul and this will not only keep Stock fans happy, but have modders switch up their A-Game with a Stock 100ft range. This is *NOT* arc'd Repeat *not* arc-fired. Some variants had Electronic Plungers, and "Super PTs".

The new Elite Mega darts (thanks again to modders and Stock fan feedback) has been evolved with new NERF technology to be more stable in flight, range and accuracy.

It comes with 2 tactical rails, one at the butt-side of the blaster, and one under the muzzle. I can't comment on the accessories on play, but i'm sure this will be unveiled shortly from my NDA. I'm pretty sure these accessories will outsell the blasters themselves.

Let me know your thoughts guys, your feedback is as always important for next gen blasters.
•If you think it sucks - say why, if you think it rocks the box - let me know why.
•If you do/don't see any mod potential - let me know why - PLEASE back up with HANDS-ON experience


Will update more as my NDA is released

At 1.5m, it's too long, and it's using different ammo.
What is the weight of this blaster ?

In order to achieve a longer plunger and draw for 100ft ranges, It's odd that the blaster would be nearly 5ft long. Homemade are able to achieve 100ft range with a blast of about 3ft in length. If they're really taking what Modders are saying into consideration, 5ft is going backwards in design. They should be able to design a blaster that at most should be 3ft and hit 100ft ranges. If we can do it without the use of injection molded shells and precise computer models, there's no reason they can't. I feel like we'll be paying an extra 10 bucks for 2 more feet of plastic.

If this is truly capable of 100ft ranges with megas, then WE're going to see the next wave of fanboyism with this blaster. Converting to micros should be as easy as brass breeching it.

Hopefully it's more solid (shell wise and internally)

Its weight is actually well balanced, no heavier than a full cs-6 clip Hail-Fire. It dwarves any blaster to date in range and size.

It is interesting, they refuse to drop the 2 foot prime (with Ptube to match). Short arm people will not be using this.

The Electronic Plunger prototype was clearing 150ft easy. But this has had negative feedback so far.

The demand for aesthetically pleasing and performance is a marriage that spawns this love child :)

If you check a lot of YT vids, there are a lot of people who love the whole Nerf loser thing, this is Hasbro' answer. There has been a big demand for an Elite loser, but the range performance did not fit in to any range, thus Mega.

First of all I dont know why everyone keeps on complaining about the length, it will probably be able to be minimized because the front part is probably a faux barrel. I get Hero's comment on how with homemades we can get that kind of range with nearly half the body+barrel length, but do we add stupid faux barrels?

Secondly, good job hasbro! This really seems like the only competitive springer since the longshot. Hopefully we (modders) will be able to convert it to fire micros. We will probably be able to wrap some half in. pvc pipe in e-tape into the breech, and then stick the desired barrel into the pvc. Considering at how reinforced the new elite internals were (I think different plastic for some), reinforcements won't be entirely needed. I think that Titan ranges will be easily within our reach with this blaster, which will be a problem for most wars that ban Titans. I think that there will be some type of restriction on internal mods done, for example: I have heard that in Minnesota Tech targets(to be used as pistols) either have to have stock draw or the stock spring. I think a ban like that will most likely have to take place at well restricted wars.

Thirdly in response to Hero's other statement about plunger draw, Hasbro probably wants all that volume because they're not going to put in a powerful spring.

Yeah, I'd just like to see how the thing works, no idea if it's really "good" or not until I've seen that.

Does that mean one inch wide?

I agree with you about the length, but other than that, this thing sounds pretty awesome.

Am I the only one actually interested in these new darts and the "super Plunger"? Those darts sound like nerf's attempt at s sort of 50 cal. ammo. Also I am guessing the whole reason they made it so long is because little kids are their market and little kids love the idea of a Sn1per. I would be willing to bet the extra length is just faux barrel and can be easily chopped off to your hearts desire.

Whether or not the extra length is a faux barrel shouldn't matter. If we do end up converting to micros, a 2 foot CPVC/brass barrel would probably be necessary for "optimal" barrel length. It's going to be very long.

My guess would be that after its minimized with that barrel for micro's it will be slightly longer than a longshot.

Do you now if they have a release date yet?
I personally think you could single it like a Longshot for stefans then get insane ranges?

The plunger tube itself is supposedly 2 feet long. Add a trigger and priming mechanism and you have a longshot's length but with no barrel.

When did this information come out?

*edit* NVM read the link in the OP, missed that the first time I read through.

This is incredible.
You said something about a new never before seen internal mech, can you give us a hint?
Also, can the front barrel come off? It looks like it might be detachable on the box...
Do you know anything about when it will come out?
Sweet blaster!

Have you handled the blaster before, or is this info from Hasbro's testing?
Do you happen to know the weight of the darts and the mag that holds them?
Also, I can envision that shipping 1.5m+ long boxes would be a problem; should it require assembly, can it be disassembled later, or is it permanent like an unmodded longstrike stock?
Somehow I get the feeling that a great number of CoD playing 12 year olds ßnipers are going to be shorter than the blaster; are there any smaller prototypes in the works?

The new dart size is fine, but the size is too long and seems like it would be clumsy to wield. Especially trying to run around with it.

I just about guarantee it.

The Recon, Longstrike, and Longshot all were packaged with the barrel off. It would take up wayyyy too much space if this thing was packaged 'complete'.

It should be fairly straight forward to convert this thing to micros. Hell, someone with a plastic printer could probably make conversion kits, as the Mega (Mongo?) Clip has a larger footprint then a micro clip.

I think Hasbro is making something so that people who play videogames can be a 'loser'
the big darts pack more of a punch so when you get shot you feel it and you don't have to shoot them again.

I really hope they don't call 1" diameter darts "Megas" since for the last decade or more we've used that term for 5/8" diameter, and use "Mongos" for 1" diameter darts (popularized ForsakenAngel circa 2008?).

This is an interesting design though. To market towards the looozars, they up the range (supposedly flat ranges too, which is nice). But then to keep to their safety standards, they increase the diameter to distribute the impact more. I'd guess the new darts have even more impact absorbing designed into the tips than streamlines (deforming the hollow tip absorbs most of the kinetic energy). However, to get that much energy to the dart while letting little kids used it, it sounds like they used a spring that's not very stiff, but is really long, hence the 2' plunger tube.

All that said, if those spec's are right, it's still of very limited modding use to us. We don't really want 10"+ long strokes, which limit rate of fire, comfort and, as it turns out, efficiency. This seems to be just as hurt as most blasters by being targeted to kids, which is of course unavoidable. It surprises me that any production company would openly suggest some capability for modding, since the official stance is always "do not modify this product."

Split has a good point, "mega" darts have been used since the mid 90's, the idea that Hasbro's calling these darts mega's is weird. I guess that were all going to call these new darts mongos?

I also wonder if this is Hasbro's attempt to kill two birds with one stone. Nine year olds are going to love this and we have something to mod. Think about it. A twelve year old will see the larger darts as a higher caliber round or something. Those litte bastards all want a "sni per". But at the same time the morons in our community will stop bitching about the long shot being out of stores.

But I love this, this would be great for me, I stopped using micro dart's a few months back and this is great. I can see the "fun" factor being high do to the shear size of this thing. Firing a stock titans still fun so I can expect this to be just as great. Also with socal wars not counting gun hits the size of this is great.

I did indeed, all 5 variants infact. I was lucky enough to see whats on the board currently up to 2015.

The barrel is *not* detachable. It's fixed. Hasbro actually spent a hell of a lot of money with a ballistics University in the US, who proved barrels benefit blasters, and rifling actually does also. So it's something Hasbro are sticking with. They, at my last conversation with Engineers had no intention to make a detachable blaster.

The MCS rounds a lot of people are hating in. But what darts allow you to maintain velocity, range and accuracy consistantly in windy, rainy situations? Or generally clear weather at 100ft+ ? Also Elites (Stream or Whistler) in a Centurion are actually dangerous. They not only bruise skin, but break the surface (draw blood). So not going to happen that they allow the blaster to be compatible with existing darts.

To be clear, we're referencing blaster that had detachable barrels of larger diameter than the darts going through them. Are you implying that this is a REAL barrel, that the dart actually fits in?

Assuming so, I can see the rifling being of use. None of us here have a problem with it, it's just been largely unnecessary considering the size and weight distribution of our darts/stefans. When you start getting arrow or missile sized foam, then the mass distribution becomes a lot less useful and having some sort of spin is necessary for keeping the projectile going straight. Thus fins and the like.

If it's an actual barrel and not ornamental, then this is certainly interesting.

Anyone with better knowledge feel free to correct me. I mess shit up when writing it down in 5 minutes :)

And try bandoliering or tac vesting these "awesome" new clips. Large ammo is cool, but in my mind it's limited to arrows and balls. And no modding potential for conversion to the darts all modders already have? Thanks Hasbro for "putting modders first". Was this the awesome new line we were supposed to go "WOOOHH" over? If so, then wow. I waited forever for this? Well, at least now airsoft haters can't say nerf can't hurt. I'll stick with my longshots, thank you very much.

Do you have any more information about these tests? Which university did they fund? What do you mean when you say that "barrels benefit blasters"? (Of course they do. Try a gun without one.)

Is this gun rifled?
