Here is the link to the Youtube video. Guy upgraded the motors, internals and made it so you could shoot over 50-rounds (not including the hopper!)

Nerf Rival Zeus Mod Link

Just amazing.

I will be a happily paying customer for anyone who can build me 4 or 5 of these. Dead serious.

PM or reply if you are interested in taking this on.

Pretty neat. Needs some tweaking, though.

Out of curiosity, how much would you pay for each modded Zeus?

I actually played in a war with that guy recently. It did need some tweaking still, but definitely pretty cool. Be aware that if you DO get something similiar, you're going to be paying for it in ammo as much as for the mod itself! The loadout seems to require as much tweaking as the blaster as well, seeing that he spent half the rounds picking up balls :lol:

shandsgator - without including the blaster, I would pay around $60-110 for that mod. The ammo part does concern me however, perhaps with a cheap enough Chinese knockoff you could do some ammo-wasting without much regret.

I need to find someone to do this mod and make 4-5 of them. I don't have the tools or the time!

I think you may have to pay more than $110 per blaster, but I could be wrong. I would imagine materials alone would add up to about $75.00 per blaster (not including 56 balls).

Is there a write up to how he made those mods?

He said he got the full-auto mod from Drac, which you can probably find on Youtube. As far as the hopper system, I don't think he's done a write-up.

They did some testing at the war with some knockoff ammo, and the results were surprisingly bad, albeit entertaining. They almost did a vertical U-turn in the air- for some reason with the hopper they got way too much backspin. We might just have to wait a bit for the production to get cheaper for the good stuff, or better with the cheap stuff.

The tools needed are not anything special...


zeus blaster @ $50 each
the clear tube is gonna be more expensive and not available to me it is about 24 per 6 ft section it would take about 4.5ft per blaster
4 90* elbows per blaster 4 dollars
1 t section 1 dollar
1 cap for t section 1 dollar
$5 the fan https://www.sparkfun.../products/11270
from there the full auto mod is free
the rewire and lipo 15 dollars in materials

So each blaster is about 102 in materials

the labor is not that hard but... time consuming i would say about an hour per kinda unfair to ask this to be done at cost.

tools needed:
screwdriver
soldering iron
needle nose pliers
saw or dremmel
glue

I agree with Lunas, Plus the fact that you are putting quite a bit of time into it as well seeing that its 4-5 of them. Honestly, in order for me to be willing, I'd want to make at least a $200 profit on that. Its a lot to ask for but if you have the money, ill be glad to.

The overall mods are not super difficult your other thread where you want a bank of these on a mounted platform is more involved. The hopper and extended mag is not complicated enough to need a write-up it is just going to take the longest the first time as you get the measurements down after the first one you can pre-cut all the pipe and slap them together. The bigger issue is you need to make a 3d printed hopper and the plan is not published for it yet. Your other option is to jank it out and cut up however many paintball hoppers to get it sized right. You might find something in automotive in the form of a funnel with a lid.


To do this mod from what i see the most difficult part is to rewire the blaster your going to gut the stock wire and put a connector up in the battery area or mod the battery area to use IMR batteries but since there is more to it we will go with a 3s lipo for about 12v stock motors should work fine after you clean up the wires.

First cut all the old wires out they wont be needed you will need a spool of 18 or 16 AWG i recommend stranded and in a soft silicon insulation rather than harder pvc they are about 6-10 Bucks for 6ft of black and red wire.
The wiring will go as follows:

red from battery to switch rev switch likely the center post the other posts one is for open position being closed the other likely the used one is for push to close at least most of the nerf switches are like this.
then red from other side of rev switch to the motors and fan
black from battery to motors and fan


The blower on the top of the hopper is to push the balls through the system it needs to be able to push air out the barrel hopper needs a close to air tight cap to build positive pressure behind the balls. To do a full auto mod a part needs to be removed and a small bit needs to be cut this can be done with a pair of wire clippers or even a sharp hobby knife or the dremel.
