Make sure to take a reference picture of a blaster's internals before fully disassembling it. Sorta good to have, I guess.

Trying to be gentle and breaking tabs off of motors you thought you fully desoldered and had not.

Not triple checking the battery housing of a rapid strike and fusing the batteries to the tray because a piece of wire slipped in and caused a short

I once shattered a retaliators plunger head, and didnt notice for 2 weeks.

Edit: Actually, i'm the destroyer of plunger tubes. I've used bad wd40 in a slingfire, accidentally (WITH A PIPE CUTTER) cut a plunger tube in half, and I shattered my Nitefinder's plunger head, and still used it. I might be very dumb.

Use flux when soldering.

 

The first time I touched a soldering iron since school, I had blobs everywhere and I just assumed that was how it was meant to me.
