Product shot of the upcoming “Swift Justice”, from the Doomlands 2169 Line”
Thanks to my contacts at Hasbro/Nerf for the news and image shots. I’m being told that these new Foam Melee items will be available to be viewed at San Diego Comic Con this year! They are made by Perpetual Play Group, which has made solid Nerf items and accessories the in not so distant past for Nerf. The “Swift Justice”, pictured above, closely resembles a knife. While the “Vigilance” below looks similar to an axe.
No information on pricing or targeted release frame yet, but keep your eyes and ears open to my site for that info in the future!

Just yesterday, a Youtube user by the name of “Charles Tietjen” posted the video above to Youtube. He attaches Nerf suction darts to his eyes and looks around, which looks a bit odd to say the least.
WARNING: This is a bit unsettling, and it personally made me squirm while watching it. Just knowing that Nerf suction darts would be attached to your eyes gets me closing them.
In a different video linked below, he says in the description that he has contacts over his eyes. Even so, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND doing this this, at all. Always wear eye protection when playing with Nerf blasters folks.
Today, I’m proud to help announce the New Dorm Labs Angled Foregrip! Dorm Labs is a USA based company that prints and sells 3D, fan made Nerf accessories. My usage of it in games and events that I’ve been to the past year has been able to help them refine this grip.
Most people’s idea of a grip if a vertical, up and down attachment of some sort. But some people, myself included, have found that holding the vertical grip at an angle (instead of up and down) is more comfortable. To take advantage of this natural body chemistry for people, firearms companies have made grips that attach at an angle. The grip attaches with two tabs, while four screws are used to secure & clamp them down here the Nerf tactical rails. Due to it’s size, the grip will only work on the Rapidstrike, Retaliator barrel, or Longstrike barrel.
A few others around the world have made their own versions, this is the first opportunity for USA players to access this style of grip. The grip is available for purchase for $14.99 on their site. However, with the exclusive coupon code “basicnerf”, you’ll get 20% off the total cost of the grip!Click here to view and buy it on the Dorm Labs site.
To read my full review, and to see the video review version of the grip, please check out the rest of the post below.
Keri Russell tells Jimmy about her son’s annual Christmas list and how vicious her toddler daughter gets during Nerf fights.
American actress was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and during their talks about Christmas wishlists she reveal that her young children (3 & 7) are into having Nerf wars with their parents. Of course, it’s not quite as crazy or hardcore as more of us Nerfers, but it could be a start! And of course, it’s nice to hear Nerf getting some attention in the mainstream media.
Thanks to The Nerdist for the exclusive reveal! The Nerf world now has new information on the upcoming Nerf Zombie Strike “Doominator”. Their description and post on this blaster is as follows.
Nerf must have been taking Tom Hardy pretty seriously when they developed their latest foam-dart-launching terror, The Zombie Strike Doominator. Looking like a modified M23 Grenade Launcher, the Doominator has four revolving dart drums that hold 24 darts It looks like the rotating drums use the same rotation mechanic developed for the FlipFury hand guns. The action lever also provides a quick reset for the next dart, a la the excellently designed SlingFire rifle.
The Doominator will be available at most major retailers and HasbroToyShop.com for $39.99 in the fall of 2015. It’s a must add for any Nerf arsenal enthusiast.

Thanks to my PR Contacts at Nerf, they’ve sent exclusive information in the form of an image, production description, release date/release frame, and price. You can check those out below, as well as my thoughts on the blaster’s design, price, and game functions.

After a lack of the usual Summer games, Camrillo Humans vs. Zombies organizers are back with two games for the Winter 2014/Early 2015 sessions! The organizers had to relocate to an Airsoft field for last year’s Winter games, but we are back now at Mission Oaks/Mission Verde Park. If you know anything about Southern California Humans vs. Zombies games, you’ll know that there’s not a lot of colleges or schools that have them over here. Which is why the creators of this area decided to organize this game back in 2008. If your visiting and in the LA County area, why not come over to play some HvZ? If your thinking about going, we would love to have you!
I’ll be going to Day 2/Game 2! If you want to say hi, meet up, or possibly get a squad together to play, feel free to let me know!

Camarillo is about an hour drive from Los Angeles. The drive is well worth it though. Some unique things about this game is that the mod team changes every year. Each mod brings a different outlook on game missions and objectives, which makes for a truly unique experience each game. Game time is usually from 10 am to 4 pm with a lunch break around noon. Some of the unique or different rules can be found below.
– There is no starve out period, and stun timers are shorter to make up for the day long game.
– The park has two decent sized fields on it, but the major terrain perk is that there’s a two or three mile long winding creek that is great for missions and surprise attacks.
– Only 1 safe zone.
– An additional, smaller park two blocks away that are also sometimes used for missions.
Feel free to leave any questions here or on the Facebook event page.
I like to prepare and show my readers/viewers how I prepare for these games. If you would like to follow some of my past journeys doing that, as well as check out game media related to our past and future games, check out my “Campaign to Camarillo” posts here.
Thanks to the USA blog Buffdaddy Nerf and his research, we’re now aware of upcoming Elite and Rebelle blasters! And while we don’t have photos for many of them, we do have names and web listings, including possible price points. And what’s this about Nerf/Hasbro losing an upcoming Rebelle blaster? What sort of blaster is shown above? Check out the rest of the post for all that.
However, fan Mod blog “Derp Mods” has done some range tests with an Elite XD Triad, and the results are disappointing, and also a bit confusing. Check the rest of the post for more info and a possible explanation.
There isn’t any other information from Isiah on where he got it from, or how much it costs. But based on previous Nerf trends it should cost the same, or about the same, as a normal Magnus blaster. While a 10 foot range increase isn’t super dramatic, it’s another step closer to the 100 foot ranges of the Mega Centurion. More range for the same price, in the same package is also another positive thing most of the tine. I’ll keep you updated on where he got it from, it’s cost, and other new information I can get related to it.
