Hey Basic Nerf Fans, this is a small, quick video I made to show you a little of what the MOLLE/PALS webbing system is and what it can do. Expect most of my loadouts to be MOLLE related in the future. Nerf War loadout update video coming in the next couple of days!

Josh and Shawn talk about their thoughts and a lot of the current Nerf Internet Community negative thoughts on the new Mega Centurion.
I’ll be posting my thoughts with the Centurion on this site some time late tomorrow.
The box art for the Nerf N-Strike Elite Rayven CS-18
Back in late 2011/early 2012, Nerf released the N-Strike Rayven CS-18. After critical acclaim from both stock users and modders a like, it seems like it was an easy decision to bring the popular blaster into the Elite line a year later. The suggested retail price for the Rayven was $29.99 USD, while the suggested price for the Elite Rayven is $34.99 USD, about $5 more. Is this blaster worth the extra money? If I already own and like the Rayven, should I get the Elite one? I’ll answer those questions and more in this review.
If your not familar with the original Rayven and it’s features, check out my review of the original Rayven CS-18 to keep up with this one. I won’t mention to many features about the Elite Rayven, since the old Rayven has the exact same outsides and shell as the Elite one.
While on the outside the Elite Rayven only has a new (but good looking!) paint job, it has has small improvements over the original, which make a big difference in Nerf games. Keep reading to check out my Elite Rayven CS-18 review in full, complete with photos and videos showing it off in action.

Nerf’s latest Super Soaker commercial features the Switch Shot and Arctic Shock. I might have to pick up a Switch Shot myself for that stock.
Quest recently posted this video of their new arena in play. It was a big event, they even got their mayor to come and help open for the event. torukmakto4 on Reddit posted some interesting thoughts on the video though.
Look, I don’t really want to be that negative poster so I am really conflicted to say this, but…
Why does every commercialization of nerf have to be so… lame?
This is like some 1990s stereotype of nerf. Fluorescent orange and yellow arena in super ultra close quarters, with WAY too many people on the field at once, no conceivable way of playing an organized game or calling hits (note kid with darts on his jersey still in play), darts going about 20 feet, outdated underperforming gear. Some totally incompetent shooting and facepalm worthy play there. And kids, SO many kids. Everyone having a free for all shooting darts wildly and randomly at near point blank… I think I will pass.
Yeah, I have a major “Get off my lawn!” streak. I admit it, but I think this is just the wrong way to run a nerf event and isn’t helping us be any more legitimate as a hobby.
I’m a bit too busy at the moment to take some serious time out and comment on that, but I will say that most Nerf games I play in are not like the video shown above.
I for the life of me can’t figure out how to embed the video here. But a user recently figured out how to flip the Rough Cut like the Winchester 1887. You can view the video here. It was made very popular in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, but to be a different here’s a clip of Arnold Schwarzenegger doing it in Terminator 2.
I’ll be having a write up review of this blaster coming in a few days as well, but for now here’s a video review on the Elite Masterkey I created. I must say, it’s quite the good blaster, and has quickly become my favorite. I’ve even included some clips from some mini HvZ games I’ve played in the review to show you how effective it is. Keep your eyes tuned to my Youtube channel and blog for gameplay in Nerf Wars and mini Humans vs. Zombies games with me using this as a primary.
