I was looking through assorted old posts, and they refer to modified blasters (especially The Crossbow) as "Level 4" or such. Cpt. Slug's Plusbow guide also refers to a "Level 4" Crossbow.

What do the bloody levels mean?!?!?!?

Before template-based blaster builds and 3d printed parts, NH users referred to various degrees of Crossbow overhauling with a level system. It was an easy way to dickwave about Crossbow mods, and they were usually (always) accompanied with bullshit range claims and ridiculously inconsistent performance claims (ahem, Split.)

Suffice it to say that the specifics of the levels themselves aren't important; it was a method of classifying Crossbow modifications.These mods included plunger tube replacement, reinforcement(s) of the blaster's shell, nasty great stuff foam shenanigans, and the addition of bungies.

Look up the old Crossbow thread if you want to see examples of these mods. You'll probably have a good laugh or two. Ellen Page is by far the best part of that thread.

Only because mine are absent (no disrespect to my boo). Maybe I should use some of my authority to get it reopened when I finish the re-do of the one.

I think Ragnarok had written a series of writeups for modding your crossbow that he gave different 'levels' If I remember correctly levels 1 and possibly 2 were super lazy things that may have been done way back in the day but by the time he made the writeup were obsolete, such as taking the tubing out and sticking the stock barrel directly on the plunger tube using a short slice of the original tubing. level 3 or 4 was to actually put a coupler on the plunger tube, which was the first thing anyone did with any blaster back then. The next level after that was to integrate some kind of airgun into the shell (Supermax 1500 or AirTech 2000) and that was it. The writeup is actually probably still on NHQ somewhere, but with that stupid ajax forum crap on the main page, I don't know how to find it.

In short
Level 1: Remove bow arms
Level 2: Relocate stock barrel
Level 3: Coupler
Level 4: Reinforcement

Here's the writeup courtesy of Ice Nine, who's google sills and/or memory have proven once again to be better than mine.
http://www.nerfhq.co...p?topic=1812.0;

Level 1: Basically a stock crossbow, with the bow-arms removed
Level 2: Tape up holes in barrel, relocate barrel to front of blaster using a short section of the stock tubing
Level 3: Epoxy a coupler onto the plunger tube, add some rubber bands to the plunger rod
Level 4: Reinforce the shell, add a heavier spring, replace the trigger spring, reinforce or repair the plunger rod

While some of the lower level stuff is pretty useless, Level 3 and 4 are collectively a pretty comprehensive writeup of what you needed to do to a crossbow back then. Another example of how NHQ actually had useful content before it got hacked.
