Backyard engineer Peter Sripol turned a NERF rifle into a souped-up airsoft gun with a fairly large barrel. Then he loaded the gun with all sorts of improvised projectiles, such as AA batteries, 6″ nails, and fireworks. This guy’s going to be just fine in the apocalypse.
Adam Savage joined Imgur’s 2016 Secret Santa and made a custom NERF sniper rifle as his gift. He went for a weathered sci-fi look and beefed up its firing mechanism. He kinda borked the magazine with paint, but overall he did a great job. Finished build at 29:08.
Popular Mechanics checks out NERF’s most insane handheld blaster yet. This adult-sized plaything has a hopper that holds up to 100 foam balls, and fires them at up to 70mph. Uses 6 “D” batteries, or NERF’s new rechargeable Rival packs. Drops Fall 2017 for about $100.
Mark Rober teamed up with Eclectical Engineering to create this awesomely unwieldy weapon which fires huge foam darts, made from pool noodles and toilet plungers. Thanks to compressed air, it can fire darts at speeds up to 40 mph. Check out the gunpowder upgrade.
The NERF Rival Zeus’ magazine normally holds 12 balls, but YouTuber Out of Darts made it so his Zeus could hold up to 108 balls. He made a custom magazine that has a blower to push the balls. He’s also working on a backpack loader that can hold thousands of the ammo.
