I just found this smoke bombswhile looking for air soft supplies. They come in any size and shape. Perfect for making a grand entrance or for just confusing the shit out of your opponents. Don't know if this is practical or not just thought I should share and see what every one thinks.

I found those before I came to the haven. I was interested in explosives and home defense. I figured out how you make one that weighs roughly 8 pounds and could burn for 9 minutes. I lost all the work though.

No thanks. You go to a Nerf War to shoot people, not to pretend to be a ninja.

As long as the owner of the property and all of the nerfers are okay with it, why not? It sounds like fun to me.

That's just it. The vast majority of Nerf Wars are not held of private property and setting of smoke bombs at an elementary school or park is not the kind of attention we want to attract.

Save it for when you can play on land you own.

Yeah, the last thing you want is police or the fire department being called in to investigate the smoke, and finding a bunch of people with black-paint guns running around. Notify EVERYONE if you're going to light this shit off.

You could do it with a Titan or a homemade, but it's stupid to shoot flaming, smoking bricks at people, fragile objects, or flammable surfaces.

That would be pretty awesome if you could shoot them out of a gun. It would be a great decoy.

I am not that stupid. I wasn't thinking about shooting people, just across a field and waching the smoke.

That would be easy. Just make a normal moded titan but have like a 1 inch piece of pvc on it to shoot it.

Eight pounds + 9 minutes of flame=Smokey the Bear coming to your house to maul you for incinerating a park.

If there is even a small amount of dry brush in the area where you set that thing off and just a mild breeze, you have the makings of a fire that could destroy alot of forest and endanger alot of lives. I have a design for a smoke bomb that was taught to me by a friend of mine that performs sideshow stunts. His burns for about 1-2 seconds and produces a smoke burst that dissipates after about 10 seconds, just enough time to maybe pull off a shot while everyone else is confused, but I will still never use it in a Nerf war. Why? Because smoke isn't Nerf.

So do u think it would be posible to launch this out of a nerf gun? :)


The design that I have can be, but only out of a custom barrel that wouldn't rip the outer material of the bomb, but I wouldn't as the core of the bomb, if it hits someone, will really hurt. It is meant for primarily throwing at your feet. The core is a glass marble. After the bomb is activated, if it was fired from a gun, it could ricochet and hurt someone.

1.) Depends on who's warring, and what their preferences are.

2.) Wow guys... just wow. In some wars, it might be possibly practical. But in every war I've been to, the practicality of having a big-ass smoke bomb is next to nil. Sure, other people will have a hard time hitting you. You will have a hard time hitting them as well. It would be like watching blind kids play dodgeball in gym class. The whole point of warring is to flip shit and diddle your opponents. I would have much less fun doing so if I was half blind.

3.) The whole concept is just plain novelty. Don't get me wrong, I'm interested in smoke bombs and all that shit too, but applying something like that would be tough. If you get out and attend a war and shock us all with your tricks, I will allow you one free kick to my ass.

What badger said makes sense. Smoke bombs, or any similar pyrotechnic devices are serious fire hazards. Also, they are dangerous to any one not used to handling them. Furthermore, as with any home made device, they are unreliable; this means that they could, one:not work, or two: make a rather large explosion. I'm sure that most people could make smoke bombs safely, but if one person mixes the wrong chemicals, or anything else, someone is going to get hurt. I think that the main problem is the "what are you crazy kids doing?" factor. As Captain Slug said, I do not think that people (especially the police or fire department) would approve of us setting off smoke bombs.
And as for shooting them out of a gun? Well sure, let's shoot burning chunks of chemicals at each other. I think it would be cool to do, but unfortunately, it's just too dangerous.

I think the only place smoke bombs would really work is if you were in a heavly wooded area.

Why? Because smoke isn't Nerf.

I think the only place smoke bombs would really work is if you were in a heavly wooded area.

Did you miss the part in my post where any type of incendiary-style smoke bomb WILL cause a fire in wooded areas? Did you also miss the point that it will piss off the authorities? The only place I see that you can use smoke bombs is if you own the field you are playing on, you know all the cops and firemen, and you alert everyone that can see your property so they don't mistake the plume of smoke for a fire, though it probably is if you use one in a wooded area. Real smoke bombs (military designs) don't spit fire, only smoke. They are a self-contained system, but also illegal to privately own. Only authentic smoke bombs can reduce the chance of sparking a fire. I said reduce, not prevent.

I don't understand why alot of the newer nerfers want it to be more like a real-life war scenario. Nerf is not meant to be turned into a mil-sim. It's Nerf! It's a bunch of people running around with plastic children's guns that have been modified, shooting each other. We don't need smoke to conceal our actions. That's what trees, rocks, and other obstacles are made for. If you want to shoot someone without them seeing you, learn to be stealthy.

In the end, if you want to play something more realistic with fake guns, just join the military. Leave the mil-sim devices for airsoft and paintball. Let them deforest an area.

Nefsharpie6, I'm sorry if I came across as harsh. I was having a bad day, so I may have vented a some of my frustration. In the past, I thought about the use of smoke bombs. Once my clan actually tried using them in a war, but as above stated, we found them too dangerous.

Hey badger clam down dude it was just an IDEA. Ya an idea, I don't want nerf to become a fucking mil-sim sport that's what air soft is for. Now just take it from me it was just an idea and if we could do the topic a favor and kill it before we have a flame fest on our hands.
