i never been to an apoc, but im getting the feeling alot of people are going to be running air pump nerf guns. idk, i think if i can get within 50ft of another person, i can tag them. i have my fiance to provide suppressing fire while i can flank who ever is shooting. but i could be wrong

can you make a slug out of an elite dart>

There's not a lot of cover. You'll have to doge several darts moving twice as fast as any you've had fired at your before.

Using your fiance as a meat shield is going to lead very quickly to you not having a wing man, not having a fiance, and not having any hits left.

No. If you follow the directions in the guide that has already been linked at least twice in this thread, you'll be fine. You should also build yourself a homemade springer or get an airgun. The Mark 8 is a nice simple one, or you could buy a Pull-SCRT from Ryan. I would recommend that maybe you should just pick any other war as your first NIC event, Apoc isn't the best event to make your first.

I'm not going to argue with you in this thread. If you think you will have fun with a flywheel blaster at this war, you're free to give it a try.

im not arguing with you, and i do take your advice with high regard considering i've never been to one. i'm just a bit upset at the amount of money i spent on fly wheel blasters all for you to say, nay, they're fruitless

Wait until you're reloading magazines for 90% of the war instead of actually nerfing, then you'll really regret using a flywheel blaster.

Sure, you can bring stock/modified blasters, blowguns, or other gimmicky/shitty dart firing blasters to Apoc but it doesn't mean that you should. The truth about large wars like Apoc is simple: if you're not using a hoppered homemade, or similar performance blaster, you definitely won't be able to compete, and by direct correlation, you won't have much fun.

Edit:

it cant be as bad as reloading an ak-47 on the run

How can you even think that this is an appropriate comparison, let alone venue? This is nerf, not firearms.

because nerf blasters emulate real guns, how a nerf stryfe/rapid strike functions is too similar to real firearms. they're fun toys, but its delusional to think that they're not emulations of real firearms. it's not really something that's worth arguing over because we all have our opinions regarding the matter.

You're absolutely right, it is obvious that the half dozen or so people who are more experienced than you aren't going to change your mind. So please, ignore all of our advice and bring your flywheel gun and your chest rig and your tin pot helmet to Apoc if that is what makes you happy.
