I just picked up the N-Strike today; I love it to pieces-- possibly literally. I hear a rattling noise inside the Titan, which started occurring after the first shot. I postulated that it was emanating from the air guage, but it doesn't sound like it's isolated to that area. Has anybody else experienced a similar dilemma?

It's the mechanism that prevents you from firing if the thing is pointed above 45*

NOTE:To launch the
MEGA MISSILE out of the
TITAN AS-V.1 blaster, hold it
at a 45* angle or lower, or it
will not launch. Never launch
the MEGA MISSILE at TV.


Is it just me, or isn't the thing more dangerous being shot directly at someone rather than arched? Maybe if it's fired vertically it infringes on someone else's patent.

All you have to do to shoot it up is half pull the trigger before tilting it up, so why is it there?

possibly to keep kids from losing the missile in a tree, since hasbro doesn't (yet) sell ammo refills for it.

I had figured the bit in there to keep it from shooting over 45 degrees was to keep kids from shooting themselves in the head. Since that pump for it is designed as a foot pump, you know there would be one kid out there who would be pumping it and shoot themselves, and bam - lawsuit. Or maybe there is some other reason. I don't know.

Ah, thanks for the help. Now if I could only get this damn DVD to work. It has no audio, and resets when I try to play it. I think my copy's defective because all other DVDs I tried worked in my player with audio and everything.

Quick story:

A few years back, a couple friends and I were messing around with some Estes Air Rockets. These things would go several hundred feet, vertically. They had the same system, that prevented them from being fired horizontally. A friend was pumping it once, and his foot hit the release. It came up, popped him in the face, and broke his nose.

Imagine what that could to to somebody, fired straight. Or imagine it at your TV.

Nevermind-- I got the DVD to work. Apparently Nerf's DVD is so ghetto that it doesn't work with a Digital Audio output. I put in the standard A/V's and hooked it to my line 2 in the VCR. The resetting was because I accidentally selected "No" for the "Do you agree to the terms?" thing.
