Objective Statistics On N-strike Line
Posted 08 April 2005 - 11:02 PM
Here are the ranges(stock):
Titan 126 feet maximum; 87 feet semi-flat
Hornet: 53 feet maximum; 41 feet semi-flat
Scout: 46 feet maximum; 37 semi flat
Nitefinder: 56 feet maximum; 42 semi-flat
Maverick: 47 feet maximum; 36 feet semi- flat.
This pretty much clears up the confusion over what a stock nerf gun gets when pointed at a 45 degree angle, but fails to show an accurate flat range since the ratios of flat to angled aren't nearly as great as they should, suggesting an error in what I perceived as the gun pointed parallel to the ground.
The standard micro shooters don't deviate much in range suggesting a tight ceiling imposed by nerf on the basis of Kenetic Energy Density of the projectile.
For those of you wondering why I still use angled ranges, it is because nerf toys are very irregular in shape usually and its hard to tell when you are perfectly flat, whereas shooting at an approximate 45 degree angle can be calcuated simply by observing the optimum distance vs. the angle of the pointed gun.
I was very surprised with the scout, which I thought to be half as powerful as the rest perfom average in range tests after many on the forums made the mav out to shoot 2x as far as the scout. This erroneous interpretation is probably due to the "awe" that ensues the maverick and the inflation of its ranges compared to other N-Strike guns.

That's not to say we don't try to aim a little higher to go over several cubicals but we risk hitting the ceiling. It takes time for the dart to go that far. However, nothing's more gratifying than seeing a sonicdart whiz across the office and seeing employees duck or cringe at their computers (especially them engineers who say they bought their Maverick to be part of the company spirit but the lamers never use them!).
