A Goodbye to Nerf Mods & Reviews (2009 – 2014)

nerf mods logo

On Friday, January 10, 2014, Nerf Mods & Reviews finally decided to stop posting. It’s been an amazing 5 year run, first started off by jerm781. After he decided to stop posting, it was then carried on to the below list of contributors at one point or another.

The site has close to 900 posts (889 to be exact). At the time of this post the site also has 6,860,567 views. That’s an amazing amount for our hobby I would say. I’ve used this site a good amount of times in trying to figure out how to modify blasters, look at internal photos, find deals on Nerf items, and even get Nerf news of my own.

Mike of Tactical Tag, one of the NM&R contributors, decided to give some of his thoughts into explaining the end of posting to the site. Below is a paragraph from his explanation post.

It’s not really any one person’s fault. Nerf Mods & Reviews needed someone full-time to continue things, and everyone we managed to find was already doing something on their own. It still has an obvious impact on the community, what with 5 years of valuable posts on reviews, modifications, and the news that it brought to light. However, it’s really just a time capsule now of a great era for Nerf blogs. Nerf Mods & Reviews was one of my “Big 3” that I used to reference so frequently… and one by one they are becoming more a part of the past than the future. Urban Taggers did it right. SG Nerf hasn’t admitted they’re out yet.

Nerf Mods & Reviews will remain open as a sort of “time capsule” to allow Nerfers both past and present to continue to use the resources such as internals and mod guides.

Coop772’s Nerf Chat – What Is The Future of Blasters?

In this Nerf Chat, Xellah (of Nerf Haven) and I discuss where we think Nerf blasters can go from here. The Rapidstrike is the pinnacle of Nerf production (so far) and we’re curious to see how Hasbro will top it in the future.

It a very interesting chat, Coop772 and Xellah talk about how good the Stryfe and Rapidstrike are for stock Nerf games, and also discuss things like ammo limitations, rate of fire, attachments, modifying, stefans (aka homemade darts), and many other things related to those topics. It’s a nice chat, but their questions raised a few more questions, and even they weren’t able to solve them themselves.

PSYK priming back the new Mega Series Magnus

Yesterday, Singapore Modder PSYK released an unboxing video of the upcoming Mega Series Magnus. We learned some new things like how to load the blaster, and got confirmation on its internal magazine/clip. But digging around a bit more on the comments of the video and internet let me learn even more new things in addition to what the video provided. So here’s 8 New Things We Learned From PSYKSG’s Mega Series Magnus Unboxing Video. This post is going to feature a good amount of speculations, and perhaps a bit of exciting news or two.

November 3, 2013 6:40 PST Edit – I’ve received a bit of clarification for the photos and blaster used in Point number 8. You can check that for an update. I also received a possible answer to where PSYK got his Magnus from, and edited that info into Point 2 of the post.

EDIT #2: PSYK elaborated with me a little bit more on how he came across his Magnus blaster. That’s been edited into Point #3.

Singapore Nerf Fans Rapidstrike Masterkey Combo is a thing of Beauty

This Rapidstrike CS-18 features a white stripe fan paintjob.

Singapore Nerf Fan Chia Wee Beng took it upon himself to make the cleanest Rapidstrike/Masterkey combination I’ve seen yet. It also features the new Elite Spectre barrel and a nice looking Red Dot Sight of sorts on the top rail.

To accommodate the Rough Cut, it looks like he’s removed the battery tray up front entirely. Doing this has allowed him to lessen the blaster size, versus attaching it to a front barrel.

The Basic Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18 Review (Write Up)

Untitled
The box art for the Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18

Back in late 2011/early 2012, Nerf released the N-Strike Rayven CS-18. After critical acclaim from both stock users and modders a like, it seems like it was an easy decision to bring the popular blaster into the Elite line a year later. The suggested retail price for the Rayven was $29.99 USD, while the suggested price for the Elite Rayven is $34.99 USD, about $5 more. Is this blaster worth the extra money? If I already own and like the Rayven, should I get the Elite one? I’ll answer those questions and more in this review.

If your not familar with the original Rayven and it’s features, check out my review of the original Rayven CS-18 to keep up with this one. I won’t mention to many features about the Elite Rayven, since the old Rayven has the exact same outsides and shell as the Elite one.

While on the outside the Elite Rayven only has a new (but good looking!) paint job, it has has small improvements over the original, which make a big difference in Nerf games. Keep reading to check out my Elite Rayven CS-18 review in full, complete with photos and videos showing it off in action.

The Basic Nerf Elite Masterkey Battle Tested Video Review (w/Game Footage)

I’ll be having a write up review of this blaster coming in a few days as well, but for now here’s a video review on the Elite Masterkey I created. I must say, it’s quite the good blaster, and has quickly become my favorite. I’ve even included some clips from some mini HvZ games I’ve played in the review to show you how effective it is. Keep your eyes tuned to my Youtube channel and blog for gameplay in Nerf Wars and mini Humans vs. Zombies games with me using this as a primary.
