Whats with you idiots and all these ancient god names? Call it FuckingPecan or something.


^ That Glorious Quote Inspired me to make a Mighty Nerf Menace that would match that amazing name, But I Did Not get A clear Picture until I had a stroke of madness, I decided that it was Time to Bring Back The Nerf Ball Into Actual Competitive Gameplay, and the Titan was the Gun to do it, But that Alone does not merit the title that WratH gave forth, I didn't think of how to do that until after CS came up with his Volley Titan.

that's what finally inspired me to bring my creation to life: An Abomination so vile, It could only have one name: FuckingPecan. I'll admit I was tempted to call it the “Clusterfuck9000” but falcon claims he's going to turret a big salvo and give it that name someday... And come on, What Strikes terror into the hearts of nerfers? The actions of a madman of course....the might of a species of hickory native to southeastern North America, from southern Iowa and Indiana south to Texas and Mississippi.

But This Nut does not have a rich, buttery flavor. Oh no. It has the sweet sweet taste of Orgasmic Old School nerf Action... It's primary firing ammo IS the NERF BALL. And I'm talking High Velocity, Highly Accurate Foamy Doom Flying at your face. The barrel is made of 1 and ½ inch PVC that is slightly sanded on the inside to make it a little easier to load the balls. It can fire up to Four at once. But it's best results are with one. With one ball I have been getting 45-50 foot accurate ranges, and with four it's producing around 35 feet or more. Also the Ball barrel is removable and can be replaced by the stock titan barrel, firing titan rockets like a pro.

And Like I said, humiliating someone with A ball of doom wasn't enough. So I slapped on a Entire Hornet's worth of barrels in a Volley Set up around the body of the gun. The Ball or Missie sets up the target to be the victim of misdirection quite often, although you can easily dodge the ball or missile, you simply cant avoid the spray of up to six darts that come with it. I used 4-inch barrels made of OMC's petg(which gets the “Baghead Seal Of Approval”) on the hornet tanks.

The gun's ramrod has a nylon washer on one end and is used for nerf balls, The Opposite end is used with the Hornet barrels. a bit of extra PETG makes up the Ramrod sheath.

And the best part of it, there is no limit to how I have to load the barrels! All six Volley barrels and the main barrel work independent of each other, but fire simultaneously, so I can load it just about however I want, giving me lots of options as a round continues during a war.

I also did the “Micro” titan minimization to FP and it makes it really easy to carry around. The pump is a 99 cent store bike pump. I attached the Hornet chambers and the pump with this new Hand kneading epoxy called Quick Plastic or something that I stumbled on at Home Depot. It's designed to seal damaged PVC and other High pressure plastics. So it makes this titan Really Sturdy.

But enough Text it's time to show off :

All in all, this is a great gun. It should be Devastating in Urban play games, particularly in CTF rounds. It is a solid blaster made with Raiding and flag defending in mind. I can't wait to put FP to use at YANO, and of course at Armageddon.

Questions? Comments?

Is 6 darts not enough? If I ever put a Dart attachment on it, it will be like the one on my old Five-Way Titan, which was a stock titan barrel with the front half a a 2k turret on it, which shot up to 8 darts at once, but I have to get a third Stock barrel first. Plus, I want to shame people with a green foam ball to the face...mmmKay?

This one's for you OMC:

WHAMMY!

*mmhm*

Anyways. I think I need a medal now. I certainly broke the "how far out of your ass can you expell shit from" by going to the next state.

I cracked up as soon as I heard the word FuckingPecan. I actually shat when I got to ClusterFuck9000.

Great job.

Edit: Dibs on getting the first hit to the nutsack from 5 feet away with the main barrel.

Come to the next DCNO and I certainly will let you do that.

Welcome back bags, and I love the FuckingPecan. I've never done anything with a Titan, mine died, but I enjoy ball blasters because of how much damn fun they are. Plus hornets + anything = awesome. Good work. :(

As demonstrated in the video, all barrels fire simultaneously from one trigger pull(original Titan trigger).

Watch the video. It will show you that it shoots them both at a time. I guess if you want to just shoot the hornet barrels, then don't load the Titan barrels. Vise-versa.

Edit: RAMBO beat me to it I guess.

It looks like you ar getting some great range really. That's not THAT far, but it's far enough.

In a tight packed area it would work wonderfully. Only thing holding it down is the reload. But that's what they make holsters for right?

barrels seem a bit crooked. Unless you did that to get a wider spread.

Great job. I love the name.

Questions,

-Would you ever ramrod a ball down the barrel? In the video it looks like you just pushed it in with your hand as far as you could. Also, do you usually/could you load multiple balls down the barrel, without loosing excess range?

-What is the optimum number of pumps needed to prime the gun? It looks like 5 or 6 in the video, but I just want to make sure.

-Would you be interested in selling a ball pump to me? I need a large pump to replace mine on my Titan (to do something like this...), so that I don't have to pump the thing 20+ times.

I love the paintjob, too.

The glue looks messy but in a good way. Makes me think of what aliens would use to weld stuff.


As odd as this sounds, I actually intentionally made the hot glue sloppy, because I just didn't like that nice, neat and clean pale blue-gray Epoxy clashing with my dark metallic "leftover half-full cans" Paint job, and I even thought the Hornet barrels had too much purple and added blue-green on to them later. I'm serious.

barrels seem a bit crooked. Unless you did that to get a wider spread.


They kinda are, and It really wasn't intentional. The Tubing that sticks out of the top of the titan airtank is slightly off-center and it pushed the top barrels some, and Gravity let one side's barrels tilt a little funny when the epoxy was curing. On an Up Side, it actually Does improve the dart spread, as you can see how small the spread is on CS's Volley titan when compared to mine.

Ahh, teh Fuckingpecan.

^ yes, Falcon and I Discuss and Gloat about Nerf in other ways besides on here and HQ... it's sad...

How do you beat it? YOU DON'T Muuuuuuuhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaa!

And Yes, I'll give you a dollar.

Great job. I love the name.

Questions:

1:Would you ever ramrod a ball down the barrel? In the video it looks like you just pushed it in with your hand as far as you could. Also, do you usually/could you load multiple balls down the barrel, without loosing excess range?

2:What is the optimum number of pumps needed to prime the gun? It looks like 5 or 6 in the video, but I just want to make sure.

3:Would you be interested in selling a ball pump to me? I need a large pump to replace mine on my Titan (to do something like this...), so that I don't have to pump the thing 20+ times.

I love the paintjob, too.


Answers:

1: Yes, but it seems to be relatively the same either way, in the video, I was showing how a quick reload can be performed for the ball. when adding additional balls, as my original post states, does lower the range somewhat, when it has the maximum of four, it shoots about 10-15 feet less than just one.

2: The Optimum number of pumps seems to be 6-7, but sometimes the Tubing pops off of one of the connectors at that level of pressure. For reference, before I added the hornet barrels, I could only pump the titan 4-5 times with this pump without it being challenging.

3: if you really don't have some form of a 99 cents or Dollar store near you... I guess, I do have like six of them. Or you can get one from wall mart that actually pumps much smoother.

And I'll re-post where "Clusterfuck 9000" Comes from: Which was something discussed in my last Big Bad Plastic Toy of Doom the Sicklefin Devilray.

"Clusterfuck 9000"

I'm making Ben a new gun. I'm going to go get ahold of a new big salvo, and put a 2k turret on all 4 barrels. Considering the Big Salvo's means of firing (and considering all Ben ever does is pull the trigger back ALL the way) the Big Salvo seems like the perfect gun for the job.
This seems to have become my specialty as of late; I'm just putting a fucking turret on everything. I even joked with Apollo once about putting a turret on each of the 4 spots on a turret (you can fire off four shots, rotating a turret each time, and then you rotate the base turret and fire four more)...

But that name..."Clusterfuck 9000"...brilliant. I nearly changed my sig upon seeing that...


Groove gets credit for that one, someone wanted a name for their gun and one of the many potentials that came up was "Clusterfuck 9000" another was "chaffed Anus" or something...

The "Clusterfuck 9000."

-Groove


-bags



And well... That's that.


My name was put to good, nay, great use. I commend you.


Thank you, your words inspired me, and I hoped I could come up with a worthy tribute.

I am suddenly experiencing an unprecedented attraction to balls.

This thing is awsome, and thank you for all the information. I am going to finally mod my Titan in a way I like.

Do the ball pumps really pump very jerkily? Because if they do, I guess I'd just get a pump from Walmart, but if they aren't extremely annoying, I would like to purchase one from you.
