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!

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.

After some leaked photos, I finally have word on their confirmation and a new line! Check out official information and photos on upcoming Doomlands 2169 line, coming out Fall 2015. Stay tuned for more information and my thoughts on these blasters.
NERF DOOMLANDS 2169 FALL 2015
With the debut of the NERF DOOMLANDS 2169 line, members of NERF NATION can become the heroes of the future. This all-new NERF blaster segment was designed to inspire active, imaginative play with a futuristic edge only the NERF brand can provide. The year is 2169, nearly a century after an asteroid impact wiped out civilization as we know it. The post-apocalyptic wasteland once known as earth is filled with bands of marauding thieves and all manners of creatures. Now, the time has come for a hero to emerge from the wild, savage land to deliver justice and freedom to the human race with the new NERF DOOMLANDS 2169 blasters by their side.
The debut DOOMLANDS 2169 lineup, featuring the LAWBRINGER blaster with a twelve dart rotating barrel and the pump-action VAGABOND blaster, is available exclusively at Target this fall and features all new sci-fi steam-punk designs, visible firing mechanisms, and NERF performance. In the epic battle for the future, NERF NATION will prevail.

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.

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!
5501 Mission Oaks Blvd
Camarillo, CA, US
(Searching up Mission Verde Park, Camarillo CA in Google Maps will also direct you to the right place.)
December 20, 2014 & January 3, 2015 (Saturdays)
(They are separate games, if you can’t make both, feel free to go to only one then.)
9 AM to around 5 PM.
What to Bring:
Layered clothing to keep warm.
Water, theres only a couple of water fountains.
Money for Lunch or your own lunch
Blasters (nothing to crazyily modded)
A good attitude
STOCK DARTS ONLY
$10 for the Entry Cost
What NOT to bring:
Banned blasters from Nerf Wars
Common sense stuff that’s way too powerful.
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.
If you the leaked images of the probable upcoming 2015 Nerf lines, then you’ll remember the Mega Bigshock and Elite Slingshock being listed on there as well. And now, thanks to the German site Bankcroft.de, we now have a new high quality images and product descriptions of those two upcoming blasters. No release dates or targeted release time frames yet, but stay tuned to Basic Nerf for more info on that as they come out.
If your not familiar with Black-Tactical, it’s a tactical gear site based in Singapore. They sell a good variety of high quality tactical gear, including accessories, scopes, sights, stocks, and even Nerf equipment. Which includes blaster kits, springs, epoxy, and more.
One of their latest releases are Metal Mags/Clips for our Nerf blasters. They call it the Aureus Alpha, or “The Golden One”. Check out their details and some of my thoughts on them below.
Version 2.0: Its the same high quality build, now mass produced cheaper!
After intensive R&D, Black-Tactical.com presents the Aureus Alpha, “The Golden One”. A Limited Edition Custom Made Metal Magazine Machined to fit Standard NERF Sockets for Professional NERFers.
Arseholes stepping on your plastic mags and breaking them
Standard 6 Round Mags too little ammo
Extended 18 Round Mags are too long and cannot fit any known pouches and cumbersome to handle
Metal Machined Body for Crush Resistance
Fits 12 Standard NERF Streamline or Ferdelance Darts
Fits All Standard STANAG M4/M16 or AK47 7.62 Magazine Pouches.
Orange/Gold Safety Colour to conform to most country’s import laws.
100% Anodized inside and out to protect against wear resistance and alu oxidization.
Metal Breach modified guns will benefit from more precise engineering with little or NO movement play when loaded in the magazine well. Allowing more efficient and precise round Feeding & Chambering and thus more accuracy.
Problem with the stupid Alpha trooper catch is that it is bigger than every other catch, so we favored machining it so that it will fit ALL OTHER magazine wells PERFECTLY with little or no movement play. HOWEVER a nail file on this stupid fat alpha catch solves the problem within seconds.
As part of the NERF community, Black-Tactical.com thank you for your continued support to create more Professional Accessories! For those who understand manufacturing would know that it cost a lot to create this. We are already pricing it as low as we can afford to already, so please buy more!
