Thanks to Target web listings once again, we have a heads up on 3 newly revealed items. The first, as you can see, is a Zombie Strike Magnus Pack. It retails for $29.99 at Target and features new Zombie Strike Mega Darts. Product descriptions and web listings for the items can be found in this post.

The Magnus gets a slightly darker red repaint for one of the blasters, and a sort of dark turquoise for the other.

If you’ll notice in the product description for these darts, the Mega Magnus Pack, and the Zombie Strike Longshot CS-12, their advertising something called “ZED Squad”, which I assume is a way to get kids and peopel to play with each other. These darts, as well as the ones shown in the Longshot CS-12 box art, feature syringe style darts which seems to be the cure for zombies. This retails for $9.99 on the Target site.

The zombie threat is getting bigger every day, and you need bigger ammo to fight back! This ZED Squad Dart Refill has 15 Zombie Strike Mega Darts for mega distance.

And lastly, we have the new Elite Precision Target Set. It looks and seems to serve a similar function to the Rebelle Star Shot that was released late last year/early this year. Looking at the darts, it seems that we won’t be getting Elite Darts. This retails for $19.99 on the Target site.

Test your accuracy with the Precision Target Set! The set includes everything you need for target practice: a Firestrike blaster, a target, and 10 Suction Darts in 2 different colors. Just stand up the target or hang it from a door, and take aim with the light beam when it’s your turn. Your Suction Darts stick to the target, so you can see your accuracy improve with each shot!

Excitied for the 2014 Nerf Blasters? Here’s What Some of Them Look Like with Parts Swapped

Click the image for a bigger look

Reddit user Buster-99 recently shared this photo mockup on the Nerf Subreddit.

For Reddit. Playing around with some new blaster parts before the real things hit the store… I tried to keep these to scale for size comparison.

As you can see, he’s swapped parts and accessories out from the Zombie Strike Slingfire & Longshot CS-12, the Vortex Revonix360, and Elite Demolisher 2-In-1. I gotta say, that banana mag looks good on the Slingfire and Longshot, and the Revonix360 looks a lot better with a scope on it. However, the addition of the Longshot CS-12 scope on the Slingfire makes it too orange for my tastes.

Which combination above is your favorite?

Basic Nerf 8/25/13 Nerf War Video Footage & Recap


Nerf War TDM- Enemies At The Front (Rapidstrike CS-18 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 1)

Hey everyone, in case your not subscribed to my Youtube channel at this point, I would highly recommend you do so. But anyways this is my first event that I took the Rapidstrike to. It was the first event of many that it took to get used to this blaster and use it properly. We played five games that day, but I only uploaded four since one of them was a bit boring to watch. I hope you guys enjoy the videos!

This game is from a series of games that I played on August 25, 2013. It’s also my first Nerf event using the Rapidstrike blaster. It’s running 3 Trustfire batteries at 12.6v. I admit, it took me months and most of 2013 to get a good handle on the Rapidstrike and what it can and can’t do.


Nerf War TDM – 2 Shields vs. None (Rapidstrike CS-18 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 2)

My struggling Nerf skills & a Rapidstrike vs. two shields. Who wins?

P.S. Not a fan of shields in Nerf Wars.


Humans vs. Zombies Mini Game 8/25/13 – Can’t Touch This (Rapidstrike 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 4)

The rules we came up with for this specific game on that day.

– There must be one human or more at the end of ten minutes for the humans to win.
– Zombies must tag all the humans before the time limit is up to win.
– Zombies take 3 hits to stun.
– Stun time is 30 seconds.

In this game, I also see what the Rapidstrike can do in HvZ situations.


Nerf War Siege 8/25/13 – Meet My Rapidstrike (Rapidstrike 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 5)

If you get within a certain distance of a Rapidstrike, you’re probably going to get hit. I show that off here in this video.

Rules for Siege:

Siege the Fort is a very simple game. There are two teams, attackers and defenders. The attacking team starts off with 2 or 3 people, and have one hit on them. When they are hit, they must go back and touch their spawn point to re-enter the game.

The defenders start off on the playground equipment or in a defensive position/area. They have 3 hits on them. When they are hit 3 times, they must go touch the respawn point, and then join the attacking team. The attacking team tries to convert all the defenders to attackers, and the defending team tries to stay alive as long as possible. You can edit the defender goal to have them try and survive a certain amount of time in order to give them a victory condition.

You Have Another Chance to Buy An Elite Pinpoint Sight

20130422_220756
A photo I took of some Elite Pinpoint Sights

The Nerf Pinpoint Sight (both it’s older Yellow and newer Elite Blue) have been popular in the Nerf Community. Back in May 2013, New Zealand had a promotion run and some Nerf people there sold them to the world. Singapore also had promotions of this item a few times, but they usually run out quick. A merchant on AliExpress has them for sale for the price of $34.00 USD. The shipping price is also included in that already. Before you get too excited about it, I HIGHLY advise that you read this review left on Trustpilot.com by a Jacob S.

The link to buy the Sight will be after the review below. It’s also unclear on the site as to how many of these sights as for sale. So if you want one, I recommend buying one sooner then later.

N-Strike Maverick REV-6 Again Makes An Appearance, Sports New Elite Colors

In the words of the movie Sandlot, “Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.” And this seems to be the case with the Nerf N-Strike Maverick REV-6.

1891066_10201518144262598_1200217599_n

As you can see from the photo above and below, the Maverick has once again gotten a repaint to match the new Orange Elite Paint Scheme. Both photos are from Facebook, with the top one being posted by a Singapore user on the Nerf Modders Welcome Facebook Group. The bottom photo was also posted on the group, but it is from a Walgreens in Honolulu, Hawaii and features a $17.49 price tag.

1912040_10202426403854300_343848071_o

Below is the Whiteout Maverick for comparison. The “Elite Maverick” features a more darker handle, white instead of grey for the handle/grip area, and it lacks the strips and decorative lines featured on the Whiteout Maverick.

Have any of you outside of the Singapore or Hawaii area seen these in stores yet? Will you pick yourself up one, or is this a pass for you? Feel free to share your thoughts!

A Tricked Out Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 Thanks to a Few Friendly Nerf Sites (Video)

This is a sort of shoutout video thanking the people and their sites who made my latest Nerf War primary and product reviews possible.

White Stripped Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 thanks to Mike at Tactical Tag. I won his giveaway for his White Strip Painted Elite Rapidstrike CS-18.

The Sights are thanks to SlyDev. It’s their front and back sight, and I hope to have a review of those items in the future.

The Vertical Grip was thanks to Dorm Labs. It’s retractable, so you can use it as a grip, or put it back up when it’s not in use.

I also end the video by seeing if can shut the blaster down running it at 16.8v (4 Trustfires) and going through 3 18 dart mags.
