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!

Announcing & Reviewing the New Dorm Labs Angled Foregrip

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.

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.

Nerdist Reveals The New Grenade Launcher Style Nerf Zombie Strike Doominator, Release Date & Price Revealed & Discussed

Zombie_Strike_Doominator

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.

Camarillo, CA Humans vs. Zombies Returns for Winter 2014/Early 2015 Game Sessions. Dec. 20, 2014 & Jan. 3, 2015


Watch a video trailer for the upcoming games above.

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!

There is a $10 admission fee. The proceeds will go towards the Wounded Warrior Project. We, the organizers have gotten permission from the game’s creators to charge people.

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!

Where:
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.)

When:
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)
Darts
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.

Nerf Quietly Releases Mega XD Line, Magnus Blaster First Of Many?

1911991_1504980619750651_7960405390064321910_n
Photo thanks to Isiah of the Nerf Modders Welcome Facebook group

In a bit if a surprising twist yesterday, Gamerboy1659 of the popular Facebook group Nerf Modders Welcome posted what looks like normal Mega Magnus boxart. The photo shows just a Magnus boxart, minus the blaster. What’s interesting is that instead of the usual Magnus up to 85 feet advertised ranges, this one advertises up to 95 feet!

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.

I wonder if the upcoming Mega Bigshock will feature Mega XD ranges as well? Again based on previous behavior from Nerf, it would be very odd for them to make/brand a new line and NOT include more blasters into it. So I personally expect some upcoming Mega blasters to be put into this line.

UPDATE: Gamerboy1659 has put up a video review of the Magnus XD blaster. I haven’t had the chance to watch it, so I’m not sure what he goes over in it.

Blastersmiths UK & BlasterTECH Partner Up For Australian, Asian, & Pacific Distribution

In a recent press release from Blastersmiths UK, they’ve announced that they’ll be teaming up with BlasterTECH in Australia to help distribute the Blastersmiths UK products and items easier and quicker to Australian, Asian, and Pacific Nerfers! Blastersmiths UK is known for their popular items such as the MKIV Drop Leg Holster and their Custom Fabric Nerf Mag Holders.

Check the press release below for more in-depth info. You can expect to start ordering from BlasterTECH November 1st.

Bristol, United Kingdom & Brisbane, Australia

Blastersmiths UK and BlasterTECH today announced a working partnership that they hope
will be benecial to both companies. BlasterTECH is an emergent wiring loom and electrical
modication company based in Brisbane, Australia. They have recently started selling wiring
looms through their website, BlasterTECH.com.au with the aim of lowering the threshold to
entry for the average Nerf modder. Blastersmiths UK already sells an array of un-soldered kits
and 3D printed parts so a trading partnership seemed like the natural step forward for the two
companies.

The two companies first encountered one another through BritNerf.co.uk, the UK’s primary
Nerf forum. Mike, from Blastersmiths UK, and Dean, from BlasterTECH, got chatting around
electrical modication and the potential of selling modied blasters. Regrettably, the regulatory
environments in both the EU and Australia prevent the sale of fully modied blasters on their
own at the commercial level but kits and pre-soldered looms can be sold in the EU and Australia
respectively. BlasterTECH moved forwards with their wiring looms and accepted the oer of
distributor in order to resell 3D printed components and some tactical gear in order to fund
future development.

Australian customers can purchase BlasterTECH wiring looms direct from their website
(www.blastertech.com.au) with immediate effect and from the 1st November 2014 will be able
to access a wider array of Blastersmiths UK products without the risks of international shipping
or the wait that comes with lead times for custom made goods. All Blastersmiths UK products
listed on BlasterTECH.com.au will be available in stock for immediate dispatch in accordance
with BlasterTECH shipping policies.

Looking to the future, the two companies are looking to work closely on further developing kits
and looms for the full range of electronic foam dart blasters, including Nerf’s Elite Demolisher
2-in-1. There is a great deal of untapped potential in the many electronic blasters out there
and the two companies are looking forward to tapping that and bringing new products to the
foam dart blaster marketplace.
