Swift Aiming with Cycloneshock

01 July 2015 - 11:55 PM

I, like many, am a big fan of the features and performance of the Cycloneshock. It's look triggers a menacing grin on my face, it's power and distance keeps my eyes widened, and the whistling of the darts in the air sends chills. But one flaw that is common in this blaster is its sometimes unpredictable inaccuracy. I've been shooting at a large wall in my yard , and noticed how the darts react from different distances. About 10 feet at least from the wall, the darts landed very close to my target. As I stepped back and shot farther away, the darts curved more to the mid/lower left.

I watched an episode of MythBusters testing the possibility of curving a bullet by shooting a gun with a swift passing motion of the arm. In their case, they couldn't curve a real bullet. I couldn't curve the dart, but I did end up increasing the accuracy of the dart's direction. 25 feet from the wall, I stood with the gun held behind the top of my head, made a swift gesture downward, and with proper timing the dart spiraled as it shot straight at my target.

So for those quick hand renegades out there, if you need to pull out your Cycloneshock behind a barricade for a distant shot, this may be the technique for you.

I will post specific logs of my data if requested.

Hammershot Barrel in Cycloneshock

25 June 2015 - 05:42 PM

I recently obtained a Nerf Mega Cycloneshock, and while I appreciate its performance and power as is, I find the idea of all that power in a smaller dart intriguing.

I have seen mods to the Cycloneshock's barrel to fit smaller darts, but since the barrel of the Cycloneshock seems like a larger scale set up of the barrel in the Hammershot, would it be possible and effective to switch the Hammershot's barrel into the Cycloneshock?

I'm relatively new to modifying and infusing Nerf guns, and I'd like the opinion of some who are more experienced before I go taking apart two guns.

note: I was not sure if this question should go under Darts and Barrels or Modifications, so if it's in the wrong place please let me know.
