Anybody know of any NERF wars happening in Chicago area? Or a NERF community that's not on NERFhaven?

Here are all the users that self identify with "Chicago, Illinois". You might want to expand your search to simply Illinois, most wars are worth a few hour drive.

As far as other communities, Nrev has recently ceded into oblivion. Who needs to pay server bills, nobody thats who.

You should also check out /r/nerf, a subreddit, if you aren't too much of a b/tard. The community is much 'nicer', but be prepared to pay for it.

Hope you can find some wars, It might be worth it to travel a state or too even. As always, keep an eye here.

Kane, Ryan and Cheerios are usually the ones who organize wars in the Chicago area. They've been on winter hiatus for a few months, but it's about that time of year where they're going to start up again. Watch the Nerf Wars section, they'll probably host something in May or June.

In terms of other online nerf communities... the ones Duke Wintermaul mentioned, as well as the Humans vs Zombies forums, the Nerf modders welcome Facebook group, and Nerfchat.

I have a pretty negative attitude towards the nerf subreddit and the facebook group. When I browse them, I feel like my brain fell out of my skull.

You can use the member search function to find members by state. There's a guide on how to do that here. There is a fairly large community in the Chicago area, keep an eye out for wars hosted by Ryan201821 and KaneTheMediocre. Here are a couple of examples from last year:
http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=23954
http://nerfhaven.com...showtopic=24301

The 2016 Nerf War Schedule will be updated periodically with wars around the country including Chicago (watch for the tag [IL], although there are some IL wars that aren't anywhere near Chicago, the wars are listed by state)

Here are all the users that self identify with "Chicago, Illinois". You might want to expand your search to simply Illinois, most wars are worth a few hour drive.

This is the second time you've posted a link to a list of members that doesn't work. Please stop posting in these sorts of threads unless you are from the area the OP is requesting information about.

Apologies, rechecking my link and doing some copy pasta research I have determined it is impossible to link to an advanced member search. Thus the 'guide' to navigation makes more sense.

It's not impossible. You have to reverse engineer how the members list works. Try this link. Looks like for the location, you just add &field_6=location to the end of the URL.
