I take no prisoners and Nerf agressively. I make sure that each and every one of my opponents has me on their tail at least once during a war. It makes things interesting for them, but ultimately for me.

As far as blasters go, I use a medium-distance/ROF average gun. Usually an SM1500, Blastfire, or PC.

Because I live in Fl., I am rarely in a Nerf War. But when I am able to go to one, or host one, it is usually a small affair. My weapons choices vary as to whether I am indoors or outdoors, so I will start with that. When I am inside, I will usually use my RF20 or my PC as a primary and carry a Maverick or Nightfinder as a back-up. When I am outdoors, I tend to stick to a decent long-range weapon like a 3B or a soon to be Longshot. And my secondary will be a PC with a Nightfinder as a last resort gun.
When it comes to my playing style I like to be as stealthy as possible, and therefore I am usually all over the place and because of that I am able to set lots of ambushes up. I will also pull phycological ambushes on people like getting them into a small area then blasting heavy death metal music while me and others pick them off at a distance, this works very well in night wars. But basically, that is how I roll in a nerf-war.

I'll soon have 2 splitfires, so I will soon be using 2. As of now, splitfire with xbow/at2k ubs/at3k is working great. I'll also take my wildfire if we ever have a big enough war for it to be effective and not a waste of darts.

I usually dual weild pistols, though I can kinda of dual weild anything short of a BBB. I used to use a DTB and an At2k, which worked really well. I resently resurected my BLingtech2k, so I'm using it now. (its even better now, looks about 125 feet range angled, I'm going to bring a tape measure next game.) Right now I use two SS1's and a mav. I usually am the guy who kinda either keeps the other team at bay for our long range guys, or the rusher. I am agile considering how big I am, so that kinda helps.

For me, it really depends on how many people are playing. Our clan is generally very busy so we're usually doing 2v2, 2v3 or 3v3, in the case where I'm on a team of 2 or my own team I'll use a DTG because of the rate of fire and because it gives me some independance. And, of course... my NF as a secondary.

Once the battles get larger -- either the whole clan is there, or a war with other clans -- I'll stick to sharpshooting suppressive fire: when my other members run out of ammo, I get to point my gun at the other team so they don't get rushed. Of course, this can get boring after a while, so often I'll drop my main and run around NF'ing everybody until I get hurt.

I like to use a DTG bcause at Geddon the heat totally messed up my X-bow. Other than that I use an X-bow and about 3 NF's in pockets. Once I get my Magstrike done, I will have a Magstrike in my hands an X-bow on my back and NF's in my pockets. I even prefer my X-bow over my LS because my x-bow has a clip that is less complicated and easier to make than a LS clip. It shoots farther too.

Cool. I'm a guy that uses quick attack guns. I run in, launch something big atcha, and run out.

I really like the Hornet because of its semi-auto capability and the Titan because I love launching the big missle at someone. I also significantly improved its range too :)

I like losing with my modded longshot as primary, hell, I even rush people with it because darts fly so damn fast out of it that they're hard to dodge at close range. I carry 2 modded nitefinders as secondary. I generally try to take out people who have automatics first.

I said other for the first 2, mainly because I use 2 or more of the answers as a combat style.

For question one, I like a well rounded gun (I like a range of ranges from 80 and up). A high ROF gun (preferably a couple modded CPVC or brass (that is still couplered) old style 1500 (with an extra 2k taped to it...its my primary after all...need some back up fire)). Yet I like single shot rifles too...they are just...my lost comfortable weapons.

A list of options and their reasons:

Well rounded:
Quad 2k- decent range, high ROF, and its a pretty comfy gun with a stock or something on it
Singled 2k- I happen to through this one in there, buecause I breech moded my most realiable 2k, thus I get shots off good with it, while having that 90 to 100 foot range in a singled 2k...see above for comfy stock like add-on.
Singled xbow- Don't have one...yet...but when it's available to me, I wil lmsot likely take it. I just love the xbow. I can eplain a LOT more in for the second question with the suppressive fire...it just happens. This gun has the range, ROF with a coupler, and its a rifle with a stock on it...what's more comfy than that?

High ranged:
Pretty much any single barreled low pump gun...ie, singled 2k, crossbow, sm1k, even a well modded sneak shot can be bad ass for me.

Question two:

I am good person to supress fire with, yet I LOVE sneaking (this time, yes...uber n00bing it and s.niping) or ambushing enemies.

I can and have held 2 or 3 eneimies off with a crossbow (that is with a teammate waiting if they decide to rush me). I have done well with my old style 1500 as well. I have even rushed with it, yet I just not that agile once I do ahppen to get my flat feet to move me.

The ambushing thing...You may call it camping, but I will go to one safe place with a teammate holding off the enemies in front of us, and he will retreat to me while I nail them as they rush after him. It works, it's a good rush of excitement for the enemy to see me pop up over some rocks and nail at least half of them and send one guy in a dodge that lands him on his butt. To tell you the truth I can remember being thanked for a good assassination round for causing one guy to jump while running, and completing a 9/10 role into a dual weilded NF shot (only 9 because he missed me, and I happened to have one shot left in my 1500).

I would then play a little on the other side and give the rest more of a chance and run around a little bit. Kind of a run, hit the ground, shoot, relprime, reload if there is time, and hit the ground after running some distance again...I call it sprint advanement rushing. You are sprinting to a spot to fall to the ground, and you are advancing and rushing at the same time. I call it an advance if I take people out and they don't retreat back more, but I call it a rush if they retreat...then I just hunt them down like a fat ungly, slobbering bear.

Hope I gave some ideas for the take 3 of this type of topic for styles of play.

Hm, if it is working I would take my X-bow. It expanded at Geddon so it got used once. But I think I fixed that problem with multiple barrells, If it is not working I prefer a DTG that is easy to cock and fires in the 50-60s it provides ROF and accuracy along with medium range.

I use a well-rounded gun. My Crossbow/SplitTech integration is my standard primary, with my Quadded NF as a sidearm. For CTF rounds, I just finished making my 3rd SplitTech, which looks just like the second one I made, but it has somewhat longer barrels. Gives it more accuracy, but is a little heavier. It'll be used as my primary alongside my quadded NF for CTF rounds because I don't want to have to do all that running with that other beast of a primary.

I tend to "eat shit ppl" (as it was put in the poll) really well, but I prefer to not keep people at too great of distances. So for the last question I put "I'm all over the place."

I use a single shot, high power blaster. I try to avoid ever missing. In a 4 person war, I rarely ever use more than 2-3 shots. One time we won a war when I only fired once. I'll always make sure I'm going to hit my opponent before I fire. When it's finished, I'll be using a heavily modified Crossbow called Getsurei. It uses special mega darts that are carbon fiber supported and use acrylic crystals for the tips. They're kind of like balls, so they don't hurt much more than hot glue.

As for strategy, I sneak around a lot. I ambush, I hide, I pursue silently. I also command my team with radios, and we surround the opposition to make ourselves seem bigger. Still, if our teams are equal, the moment one guy is taken out, we seem to have the upper hand.

I like to use my R.C.S.B. barreled AT-3K for mid to long range combat. In larger wars I like to use my R.C.S.B. barreled Titan at very long range, or just really close range if I dont like someone :(.

I run all over the place and, depending on the terrain, take stupid and fun risks. My friends and I usually play at a tennis court and, when its free, a kids playground. Its really fun to take a 14 foot drop and be able to fire 2 or 3 shots from a Maverick before you hit the ground. Im currently trying to find a concrete terrain park to enhance my reckless self endangerment.

What does RSCB mean? losing is fun, but I don't really practice enough with my X-Bow to get really good accuracy. I watched a guy at geddon get a chest shot off from 60-70 ft, I wish I could aim like that.

Now I KNOW that you're a forum junkie, and don't check out the whole site.

It's right over here in the Modification section off the main page.

It works wonderfully...when it works. It's dependent on straight darts, smooth moving, and no leaks. Mine gets 7 shots (1" micro stefans) and 80 feet consistently. Where is it....there!

Posted Image

It looks kind of "different", but it works pretty good. But not reliable enough for "real" warring.


BACK TO TOPIC....

Posted Image
That's my 2k I've been using for I-forget-how-long already...PETG turret, plugged pump, easy 60 feet on 2 pumps, and cut away turret for quick successive shots. No combat style, just Nerf.

...I was hoping you wouldn't ask that.


RSCB is for the names of the collective ingenuity that created the barrel system.

R = Rawray7

S = ShortShit

C = CynicalSynapses

B = 3DBBQ

Thusly, it's the Raw-Shit-Cynic-BBQ barrel system. RSCB.

I like it a lot...so I searched for you. Plus, these guys were active when most of you weren't around the forums yet.

Yeah...I'm going to try to debug it and throw one on my SM5000.

I think I meant RawRay7 at the last geddon, but maybe not. How long did it take to design that system? I was just watching a geddon vid and saw around 6. Back on topic, now that I have been playing 1 on 2 with my MS, I am starting to like it alot. I think I might switch to my MS until I can get my Ls or my X-bow inot multiple long range madness.

Unfortunately I've never really had a war with friends that was more than four people, but last June at the DCNO when I was getting more used to my Powerclip, I would usually wait for someone to shoot, try to dodge it and then rush up within 10' so I'm SURE I won't miss and mow them down. It would seem that using a Powerclip would be a disadvantage playing 3:15 rules, but it's the only gun I can be effective with.

I also covered my teammates and if someone was reloading and in danger of being shot I would usually try to hold back the people that were shooting at my teammate.

I also used a Hornet with just the barrel posts removed and only used the blast button. I would wait for someone to reload, then rush them and try (almost 100% successfully too) to blast them with all six shots.

Rushing people just seems the most fun to me and charging into battle gets me excited. It's what keeps me a Nerfer through and through.

So, my playing style is basically wait for someone to shoot, rush up to them and try to run them down, shoot a ton of darts at them and run away to reload. I lack versatility in that I can only use one or two kinds of guns effectively, but I think I make up for it with how good I am with those guns.
