Okay so I was just taking apart my titan (n-strike rocket launcher) and i stripped three of the screws so I cant get them out, in other words I can't open up the brand new gun ^_^ ! I was wondering if there was anyway I could get the fixed screws out. I also need to know how to get the orange thing on the end of the gun before the pumper off.

I don't own the gun but you can take it to a homedepot or lowes I think and they have a tool and they put a new groove to screw it out with. It is expensive to do I think

drill the screw out. cheap, but you won't be able to put the screw back in the same hole. it's the price you pay.

I stripped a few screws on my good 3k, and they way i got them was by drilling it a little, which widened the groove so I could just use my screwdriver to get it out.

Ok, here is what I've done in the past when I've needed a screwdriver shape that is uncommon (such as a triangle bit), and was too cheap to buy the bit. Get one of those Bic pens, the clear ones which come in 10 packs for 1 dollar at most targets and office supply stores. It has to be the clear kind. Take out the ink part of the pen which can be pulled out by the ballpoint tip (should be golden brown color) with pliers. Check to see if the clear part of the pen fits to where you need to reach the screws. If it does fit, great, but if not then sand it down some so that it fits. Then take a lit candle and heat up the clear part you have left til it starts to soften up. You should be using the end that the ballpoint pen used to be at, not the end with the colored cap. I recommend using a candle holder with the candle so you can press the pen up to it to test if it's soft. While it's still in it's soft state press it onto one of the screws firmly and hold it there for about 10 seconds or so so that the pen takes the shape of the misshapen screw. Hopefully you can twist and the screw will turn. If the pen sort of grips and then just gets scraped because the screw is too tight, reshape it with the candle, but put it in ice water right before attempting to turn so that it is somewhat harder. Repeat this process of shaping the pen for each messed up screw. When putting it back together hold each strange screw with pliers and press the pen to it again when heated, and screw in. Good luck! I hope I'm not too late.

Right. You would just drill it normally.
