Basic Nerf Night of Nerf Game Videos (April 27, 2013)

On a night in late April 2013, I met up with a group of friends at a park, and we played a few Nerf games. I you don’t check my Youtube channel too often, and you should because there’s a lot of good stuff on it, then here’s the 4 games that I recorded from that night.


Game 1 – Nerf War Siege The Fort (Offense) – A Vortex Diatron Attack (Vortex Diatron Gameplay)

This video is from a Nerf session that took place in April. I decided to use the Diatron here and see how it is.

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.


Game 2 – Siege the Fort (Defense) – Mid Game Blaster Switching (Firestrike, Retaliator, Raider)

I start off with the Firestrike, but switch off to the Retaliator, and then Raider to defend myself while trying to fix my friend’s blaster issues during the game. A bit on the hectic side for me personally, but it was quite the challenge!

Check out the rest of the post for the other two game videos from that night.

817f9f798c60e2e185a6ccfe311caf20

Nerf has just updated their official game section on the game called Roblox. I’ve seen my little cousin play the game once in awhile. The challenge is supposedly really easy to accomplish. Check below for the official description and a game video.

Get ready for some serious target practice! Select either the new Diatron blaster or the new Rough Cut blaster and hit as many targets as you can each 5 minute round. Targets are worth different points so be on the lookout for red targets – they’re worth extra points! Be sure to grab the different power ups so you can shoot faster and score more points.As an added bonus, the MVP of each round will be able to unlock the upgraded Rough Cut blaster with precision scope. © 2013 Hasbro.

AFON – Nerf Vortex Diatron First Look (Video)

AFON got their hands on the Vortex Diatron, and boy, when the product description said it used a lever, it really uses a lever. He also shows how it fires (2 discs from one barrel!) and also shows the magazine loading system. Which is very similar to the Vigilon.

Nerf finally acknowledges all those Amazon listings from about 2 weeks ago.

Nerf Nation….are you ready for Multi-Shot Madness? We’re bringing you two new blasters in 2013 that allow you to fire TWO shots at once. Introducing the N-Strike Elite Rough Cut 2×4 blaster and the Vortex Diatron blaster. Each will fire two darts (Rough Cut 2×4 blaster) or discs (Diatron blaster) with every pull of the trigger, giving you twice the edge over the competition. Look for these blasters on shelves soon in 2013. (Please note: availability and timing will vary by country/state/city) Nation – let us know which multi-shot blaster you will be rockin’ in the new year!

From Nerf’s Facebook.

So the only question is, when will the Diatron be sent out for everyone in the USA/World to enjoy? All the other stuff previously listed or leaked is pretty much being released and out for public buying. Only time will tell I guess.
