Hello,

 

I am looking to buy Nerf Rival guns and ammo for a group of around 20 kids. I am brand new and very inexperienced with Nerf in general so i am just looking for some tips and advice on what would be a cost effective way to equip an army of 20 kids for a nerf war. Anyone out there have any advice? Thanks!

Outofdarts on reddit/YouTube/the store is very good at rival gear and would probably have advice available. There are a few knockoff brands of rival HIRs, but none are especially cheap and I hear mixed reviews about the compatibility of some of the cheaper online options in Rival-brand springers.

That said, I think the Adventure Force/Dart Zone HIR-equivalents at Walmart/Target work well enough and are less expensive.

As for blasters, the Kronos is solid, and the Adventure force offerings are also decent (titanium, quantum, and accelerator) and less expensive. All Rival gear will cost more than dart-flinging gear; ATM you can get a 2-pack of excellent six shooters from Zuru or Dart Zone for $13, while a single Kronos varies from $14-20.

Also, what age ranges? Before you buy in bulk, check that one or two of them can prime the blaster you pick. Kronos’ can be hard to prime for kids, and though there exist pullback mods, I don’t know if you’re into doing that for 20 blasters.

These are jr high and highschool kids that will be using them. Thanks for the advice. I was looking at the artemis but dont know how hard it is to prime those either.

High schoolers shouldn't have trouble with any of the offerings. Jr. highers would probably be able to use them, but might need instruction in proper full operation (not short-cycling, loading procedure, etc.). Artemis is a solid choice and functionally similar to the titanium.

+1 on the Kronos and Artemis. These are nice in that users don't need to lug around extra mags. Some big pockets or a simple belt pouch/bag should suffice (except for ball spammers who like to slamfire the Artemis...)
