Random Acts of Nerf: Attaching Nerf Darts to Your Eyes

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.

There’s a less another video he made showing the process of putting them on, which is also a bit easier to take. If you want to see more, someone also made a short gif as well. Check the rest of the post to see that.

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.

Buzzbee Toys Takes on a Slightly More Mature Look With New Blaster Commercials


Their 2014 Lineup, featuring the Predator, Sonic 6, and Extreme Blastzooka.

Buzz Bee Toys has recently released Youtube commercials for their newer blasters called the Predator, Sonic 6, Extreme Blastzooka, Sidewinder, and Gunsmoke. And while their looks and performance still seem to be on the lacking side, the ads are a step or two above what we’re used to seeing from Buzz Bee.

Check out the rest of the post below, as well as video commercials for the Sidewinder and Gunsmoke.

This Nerf Foam Film by RackaRacka Has Over The Top Action, Special Effects, and Stunts! (Video)

 

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to look for good Foam Films online, but this newer one by RackaRacka is quite something! Sure it’s got the usual gun sound effects for the blasters, but they sound good here. The cut cutting, extreme action will leave you engaged, and it’s special effects are both good & bad. I don’t want to spoil too much, but that’s part of the charm and humor of the video. There’s a few NSFW words thrown around a few times, but if you can look past that then it’s quite the great foam film.

Nerf Youtuber Coop772 To No Longer Take Commissions

coop772comish

Yesterday, Nerf Youtber Coop772 took to Facebook to announce his closing of commissions.

Commissions are closed for good. I’ve said this many times in the past, but I think it’s for srs(serious) this time. I’ve come to the conclusion that working on other people’s modifications that aren’t innovative or truly unique is pulling from my innovation within the hobby. My recent goal of trying to output cooler, faster, more unique pieces is more difficult when taking commissions for blasters with “normal” modifications that I’ve done dozens of times. I will still be selling blasters on my webstore, but they will be whatever modifications and paint I feel like adding at that time, rather than things specified by a customer.

I realize this won’t make sense to a lot of people, but I feel it’s the best way to keep this hobby fun for myself and to only output awesome mods that I’m truly proud of, rather than the normal internals with a normal paint job that I could do blindfolded. I’m trying to challenge myself and do new stuff, hopefully something useful or enjoyable will come out of it for you guys, the viewers.

Webstore link: http://www.freewebstore.org/coop772

While commissions can be a good way to make money, it can be draining on your mental and physical as well. At the end of this statement, Coopy says he’s “trying to challenge myself and do new stuff”. So it looks like he’s aiming for the long run enjoyment in Nerf.

The Upcoming N-Strike Elite Rhino-Fire, the Most Expensive Blaster To Be Released By Nerf. Press Release Info & Firing Video Here

51nru4ZF5eL
The box art for the upcoming Rhino-Fire

Early last week, Amazon Spain put up a listing for the N-Strike Elite Rhino. In the listing, we got details as to what the blaster was and what it will come with. And now, I have a press release info to share with you all!

NERF N-STRIKE ELITE RHINO-FIRE Blaster
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $99.99/Available: Fall 14)
Dominate the competition with the biggest, baddest NERF blaster yet! The N-STRIKE ELITE RHINO-FIRE blaster is the first fully automatic NERF blaster featuring rapid-fire, double barrel blasting, an amazing 50 dart capacity and two N-STRIKE ELITE dart drums, turning ordinary battles into extraordinary ones. The epic RHINO-FIRE blaster sends darts soaring impressive ELITE distances of up to 90 feet, and features both a front handle for mobility and tripod to ensure awesome accuracy. Includes 50 N-STRIKE ELITE darts. Six “D” batteries required, not included. Available exclusively at Walmart.

And most recently, a firing test of the blaster at an unknown event has surfaced. I downloaded it and reuploaded it to Youtube in case it was taken off Instagram.

As we can see from the video above, it’s a flywheel blaster. The barrels seem to fire one after the other. The user’s thumb in the video seems to be on a switch or module of some sort. Maybe we can control which barrel fires the darts?

While the Rhino-Fire is certainly a spiritual successor to the Vulcan EBF-25, the $99.99 (or $100) price point will make this a very expensive blaster to buy. The need for 6 D batteries increases the cost even more. This will be the most expensive blaster Nerf has released for retail when it hits stores. Previously, it was the Stampede ECS released for $49.99.

I’ll be sure and report if other countries will be selling this as well. Do you plan on getting one yourself? Is this price justified?

Armageddon XV (15), The Biggest West Coast NIC War, Is Scheduled for June 21, 2014


Music Video Recap for Armageddon 14 (2013)

In case my Southern California readers weren’t aware of this, the biggest (or arguably biggest) Nerf War on the NIC Modding Community is coming up this Saturday, June 21 2014. This has been a long time tradition (we’re on number 15 now!) with usually someone SCUN related hosting them.

This year it’s a bit special, we have Langley (one of the Nerf Haven Forum Creators) flying in from New Jersey to host and play! We also have people coming in from the Arizone, Utah, and San Francisco areas.

In case your not familiar with what the NIC is, it stands for Nerf Internet Community. While the internet has connected and help popularize “mainstream Nerfing” (Nerf with clip/mag fed blasters, Nerf blasters being modded and used for Wars) the term NIC within the NIC usually stands for blasters exhibiting higher power. Blasters and darts are often homemade. What rate of fire and ammo capacity is a little behind most Elite blasters, they make up for in range and accuracy.

I’ve been playing Nerf for about 5 years now, but I’ve never been to an Armageddon event. This year, I plan on changing that! I want to get better as a player, an event organizer, and experience a little different side of Nerf. Feel free to come and play Nerf, say hi to me and other Nerfers, and generally have a good time. I’ll be the guy wearing a panda hat and something panda related. 32 different people have marked themselves down as going on the Nerf Haven Forum topic, and some people are even bringing or inviting more.

To check out rules and what you need to bring, and see who’s marked themselves down as going, look at the rest on the post below or read here.

You can view the weather forecast for that day right here.

For a few videos of past events, check out SCUN’s Youtube channel.

Keep an eye out on my blog and Youtube channel for my loadout video and what I plan on bringing to the event.
