OK I am having the last indoor war of the year at my house in a little while and I don't want to use stefans because they are a bit too powerful and stock darts have too little power so I wanted to know of a dart that are in between the two. Any ideas or darts people have used?

I might try either smaller weights, no weights, or use put some fbr in front of the tip. Or a combination of smaller weights and fbr in front of the tip.

I'm sorry but if you can't handle regular stefans then that's just sad. I got shot one foot away with an at2k and I was fine.

He never said he couldn't make stephans he said that they were to powerful and probably said this because they might dent the wall not because they hurt.

Make regualr stefans, but place a peice of sponge on the tip while it dries. This will take the shock from impact.

I know you wrote stock darts are to weak, but with modded guns they can get similar ranges of stephans. Are you using modded guns or unmodded? If you change your mind, I can sell you 75 new nerf micros to help you out with your war.

Kid what are talking about, I never said I couldn't handle them. I just said that I want darts with a soft tips because we play in a small area( 4 rooms) and I don't want them to mark up the walls too bad. THANkYOU Sistermol.

Um rip how much for the stock darts even though I have 113 stocks.

Lastman alive- have youy tried that idea before, it sounds good.

...and fbr in front of the tip.

I second that idea. It was in my head the whole time. The main reson why I haven't used stefans yet is 1. They dent walls, I like to shoot my guns indoors. 2. I bet the hot glue tips kill on bare skin! And welts. I don't wanna be walking home with welts on me. I'm not saying that I'm a panzee here, but when me and my friends use my guns and have a tiny little war, their yonger brothers also play with us. And I don't want them to cry when they get shot with them.

Seriously, has anyone ever tried puting a small rounded tip of FBR on the front of their stefans?

Are you serious I shoot my friend with a singled 2k from like a foot away and he has two welts on his arm from the same dart. Well they arent so much welts as they are scabs. But my singled 2K is a beast cause I can pump it 8 times no problem. I cut the tank open and super glued everything together so it can handle much more pressure. No joke either and there isnt really a way for me to prove it so yeah I just wouldnt lie on a nerf fourm to make you guys think any better of me.

I would recommend the 1105 "matchstick" rounds. They get much better power than stock, but the plastidip tips won't mess up the walls.

SG Pilot; I've tried doing it, but getting a top that is as round or aerodynamic as the hot glue is hard, and I lose range and accuracy using darts with foam tips.

I would like to draw your attention to these.

Edit: Found at your local walmart. a 16pack for $1.99. Alot cheaper than Nerfs dollar per whistler bulshit. (within a week 8 of the heads had fallen off.)

Thanks guys for feedback
-Forsaken I would try that but I don't now where to get those darts( i've never seen them)
-Ompa if you put a pices of FBR over than hotglue will it shoot further than stock?

-Isn't plastidip hard when it dries like hotglue?

- And nerf guns can definitly leave welts but they still don't hurt.

You can find those darts here , but I don't know where you can buy them.

From what I've heard, plasti-dip is significantly softer than hot glue, but I'm not sure.

- And nerf guns can definitly leave welts but they still don't hurt.


Agreed. I have had some serious welts, but darts don't hurt. (unless you get shot in the eye, but that's completely different.)

Thing is, most of the guns that I have either shoot stock or stefans, so I really have no adequate way to test them against eachother, except in my Nitefinders.

However at this point all my stock micros have been used to make different versions of stefans, so I really am unable to test them.

I'd say there's a small loss in range, and also a hit in accuracy. But that may just be coincidence.

I've got those 16 dart refill packs at TRU for about 5 bucks canadian per pack. They outperform stock nerf darts too.

I no longer am allowed to do anything that involves shooting indoors...too many "accidents." Yeah, umm: SuperSoaker + 1/2oz. Stefan + human shoulder = world of hurt^lots of bleeding. Nerf can hurt. Actually, it just made him literally fall to the ground after forcing his shoulder back 4". No scar tissue, that's a good sign...Best part is, full feeling returned to the area after an hour. Yeah, I'll stick with lower BC and higher SD projectiles now...

Ompa, didn't you create that topic about Stefans with FBR over the tips of them? I think, I will search and find it. Well, here it is. I guess it was 3DBBQ. Well, I still gave credit. Hopefully he doesn't hunt me down with a newer gun than his bullpups and whatnots that he has an awefully good habit at making deadly effective. *scurries away to find cannon* *found it in signature* *turns on shop compressor*

Would this technique work with 1.5"x4" foam?

I'll agree with stefans not being good for indoor use. I was just screwing around with a 3 foot length of petg, and used it as a blow gun with a stefan. I blew the dart across my living room and it hit a window. The window is definetly cracked now, not broken, but cracked for sure. I won't use stefans indoors anymore.

Lastman alive- have youy tried that idea before, it sounds good.

I have not tried that idea, but it HAS been done and posted before. I believe someones parents didn't like the fact that stefans left welts, and in order to play with better ammo, they put sponge over the hot glue on the darts when they dried. This does rack the price of making stefans up some, but it is a great way to use the full range out of your nerf blasters without the trouble of leaving holes in the walls.

NOTE: Even WITH these darts, 2Ks, modded Titans, SM5Ks and other high powered guns should be avoided. Especially with your small area you all will be nerfing in. It's just too risky with guns that leave more than welts with regular darts.


Edit: Didn't buzzbee come out with nerfdarts where the suction tip doesn't go over the whole side of the dart? Thus, it would fit in CPVC. Try those.

~ompa

I wasn't completely confident about doing that, but I suppose matchsticks are the right thing to do. The only problem is can you fit them into a PVC barrel or would you just have to shoot them out of CPVC where they are not all the way in the barrel? If I make stefans, I shall make matchsticks.
