Ok so we were nerfing today around my house and then I shoot my friend with my opma moded Titan so all of the sudden he starts screaming and yelling saying I shot him from 10ft away with it when I was like 20-30 maybe even 40 he takes his at2k breaks the barrel and says you coulda used your nf so I says I didnt wana this is more accurate. So then he says stuff like nerf is gay and I shoulda listen to my mom this is for 5 year olds. What should I do? He has 2 younger brothers and pretty much holds our nerf war together because most of the time its only like Me my friend Matt and PJ so I dont know If I should just be like Your such a baby dont ever play again or like comeon play again.

I would not want to get hit with a stefan modded titan either. If it was the missle I wouldn't mind. My rule is if it shots over 100' flat you can't use it. If you realy want to use it set a number of pumps limit.(like 5 pumps only)

Option A: Be nice and try to convince him to come back.
Option B: Ask him "If it's for 5 year olds, then how come you're complaining that it hurts too much?" ^_^
A might work better, but B is a nice snappy comeback. If it shoots 200 feet, though, even 40 feet is rather close, since it's 1/5 the normal max range, and the titan is really powerful, so a better idea might be B, then A quickly while promising to use the titan only for at least 100' range shots.

Tell him that from now on you'll only use it if the size of the playing field is large enough to require the longer ranges of the titan and if it's not just use a smaller number of pumps.

First things first, you should read this:

http://nerfhaven.com...?act=boardrules

I counted three sentences.

Second of all, you shouldn't use a Titan. It's really a lame weapon and far too powerful for Nerf. Shooting your friends with it is kind of a dick move, especially if you're doing one on one. When I fired the Philly kids Titan at a tree it chipped the bark. Consider what it will do to your skin. That's worse then even a Paintball gun, because at least the ball will break.

Your best bet is to revise your arsenal. Obviously, your friend has a problem with you using a Titan and if you want to continue playing, you should be cortious to the other people on the field.

At my local paintball field a vote is always taken on whether to allow bunkering, cause it can hurt quite a bit at close range like that. If one person does not want bunkering, we have a one bunker rule. So 20 to 1, and it's out.

The relevancy is when it comes to points in any game where the inclussion of something is debatable. In this case, it's the Titan. In the case at our field, it's bunkering. So what you should do is respect the fact that your friend doesn't want to get shot with the hell lightning that is the Titan and get something he won't bitch about.

I hope this helps.

If I were you, I would apoligize for shooting him so close with a titan and then try and then don't use your titan close again.

What Talio said.

Any person who is not comfortable with the power of a particular gun should be able to veto it. Particularly in the case of the Titan which is probably disallowed at 90% of organized wars.

Ten or fifteen might even be too much. I don't know, I've never shot a modded Titan, but when I first got mine, I only pumped until the gauge went up to full, which was sometimes as little as seven pumps, and it could still launch that missile quite a distance. I just wouldn't use it, and try to convince your friend to play again.

Yeah I'm goign to agree and say that's really not going to help. You should definetely think about revising your arsenal. There's also the issue of possibly losing count of how many times you pump it. Not to sound repetitive, but it would be wise to just get something else. If you play with guys who don't mind you using it, great your set, but being as you will probably always have an issue with being able to use it, you'll be better in the long run to just pick up a two pack of AT2k's are getting good with pistols.

Whoa. :blink: My titan must be messed up then becuase when I pump my titan seven times it goes lide, I don't know about, 8'. Quite a distance for that I think would at least be like 15-20'. OH well, life is so.
