So some crazy genius created a thing called multi-impact bullets (image link below). Long story short, it's a bullet that splits in 3 string-linked shots when fired. The intention is a wide-area shot (like a shotgun round) that is nevertheless more controlled than a shotgun round.

I figured, this meshes nicely with our blasters' low precision, between the wider area and each 'sub-bullet' forcing the other 2 to diverge less.

Has anyone tried to build such a thing? Any obvious issues with the idea I'm missing?

It's not too tough a technical problem, but string tends to trip people so it's a bit of a safety hazard, and imagine trying to untangle a bin full of darts connected by string.

Well, we'll not go with meter-long strings :P Management could be a pain, depending on how it is done.

That's bloody amazing! Especially the triple-shot guy sounds spot on, though there's some terminology I'll need to google.

I want to apply this to the dreaded s-word, after all.

Results: When fired from my singled tagger titan(sink drain adaptor), with darts loaded normally (head to tail, head to tail, facing forward): hit the wall at 60 feet with no drop, in a fantastic triangle, then wrapped around some metal tubes.


Can someone help me parse this? What's a sink drain adaptor? What's the setup discussed?

Single tagger titan -> probably a singled titan

 

sink drain adapter -> a PVC fitting that would likely allow quick barrel changes or fairly easy adaptability

 

darts loaded normally -> all the darts are facing front in a neat line

 

Sounds like he loaded all three darts into a single long barrel in a line and fired them from a very high power/volume blaster. A singled drainblaster would be similar today.

I see, that makes sense!

I'm thinking a tri-barrel setup would work wonders too, if we could somehow link the darts through the barrels. No clue how to do that, though. A stoppered slit would require extreme precision in its construction.

Has there ever been a blaster that had a 'moving cap' between the darts and the pressure chamber, pushing the darts indirectly by pushing the backing surface? Like a t-shirt gun?
