i was just thinking, and I realized the connection between the hornet es6 and the longshot cs6. I may be a dumbass to have just reallized this, but I think that like the scout and the NF (ix-3 & ex-3) these two uns are to be equals, (to nerf at least) or somthing like that. 6 shots with 6 barrels, pump powered, as compared to the single barreled, high powered break-apart-able 3-dart clipped, spring powered distance rifle. they are both being released under the N-Strike line, and are probably intended to be used together (i.e. two people each with one of the two.) for more complicated wars (nerf seems to understand the concept of nerf wars with their standard clips and such) like CTF and other large-team games

I would like to know if everyone agrees, just don't flame me, 'cuz i know that i may seem retarded for pointing out the obvious. it just didn't seem obvious, because no-one mentioned it before.

*EDIT* Oh, and honestly, I stopped caring about what they look like, we know what they're capable of, really guys (specifically other newbs) just enjoy the guns you have, and worry more about you're homemade darts and such. any gun is capable, its the human factor that makes them great, or awful. the darts are something that are important, and if you suck at making stefans (like me) then make 1105 matchsticks (easier and very comparable in performance to stefans, and last longer). so now that i have made my first crappy lecture on a forum, i can die peacefully :(

I thought you knew what they looked like Whiney. :(
I kinda agree with him though, just play with your current and older guns and use those.

Pump up the action with the NERF DART TAG MAGSTRIKE blaster, the first NERF rapid fire blaster with a clip reloading system!


The NERF N-STRIKE LONGSHOT CS-6... And, with an awesome reloading clip system, refilling your blaster has never been faster.


Hmm... the more I read this and the more that I think about it (I know speculation isn't good)...

It sounds like the magazine system uses stripper clips sorta' like my SuperMaxx 1000 (seen here). They call them reloading clips implying they're used for reload only and not as a functioning part of the gun.

The Powerclip used a clip that was a fuctioning part of the gun, but was not first to use a clip. The Sawtooth used the clip system and its clips were functioning pieces of the gun. It says the Magstrike is the first with "clip reloading system" which sounds like stripper clips.

I am also thinkng very much along the lines of the Sawtooth and Electric Eel. Like you said, it says 'reloading clips' which implies the clips are used for reloading. The Power Clip's clip is internal and it is not used to relaod: it is the thing that must be relaoded. So, it sounds to me like these clips are indeed stripper clips like your SuperMaxx 1000, and my Nite-Mav.

However, this is all speculation based on what could be nothing more than a case of poor phrasing.




Anyway, the Magstrike will almost certainly be a very good gun (If not at first, it will be when we all get our hands on it ;) ).

However, I am very curious as to the specifics of the CS-6.

It seems to be very reminiscent of the old CyberStryke DT3, which, when modded right, was very, very good.

And this, again, is speculation, but I just had a horrible thought. Instead of having the barrel straight out of the front, or level with the way you hold it, do you think Nerf would put the barrel sticking out at a 45 degree angle, so as to increase stock range without making it overly powerful, but making it impossible to use?


I would hate that...

It gave the site a sort of 'homy' feeling.

Did you know that "m" can sometimes look like "rn" when read quickly?

Classic military phrases:

"Retreating?! Heck no, we're just advancing in other direction!"

"Are there any experienced suicide bombers?"

"Any ship can be a minesweeper... once."

"Don't run, you'll only die tired."

Say what? If you are refering to only a stock EaB then you are, of course, correct. A modded EaB is one of the most powerful spring pistols around. See cxwq's mod for details.
