After getting his hands on a foam cylinder that looks like a gigantic NERF dart, Ivan Miranda did what any enterprising geek would do, and built himself a weapon to launch his oversize ammo. He built his bazooka from PVC drain pipe, 3D-printed parts, rubber surgical tubing, and paracord to reset its plunger.
THE BEST Nerf
There are lots of cool NERF guns and NERF mods out there, but very few of them actually help with your aim. 3DprintedLife engineered this cutom build which can lock onto targets and track them automatically, reducing the chances of missed shots. The main blaster is based on a kit from CaptainSlug.
Inspired by the MA40 assault rifle in Halo Infinite, this official NERF blaster features motorized dart blasting, and the ability to smoothly fire with sequential trigger squeezes. It includes a 10-dart magazine, 10 NERF Elite darts, and an attachable rail riser for mounting accessories. We wish it had a real ammo counter though.
While The Hacksmith’s latest build isn’t as awe-inspiring as a working lightsaber or real doomfist, it’s still entertaining. Watch as they take an off-the-shelf NERF gun, and modify it to produce bloodcurdling screams (and other sounds) as its moved or fired, inspired by the screaming gun in Borderlands 2.
If you’ve ever been in a NERF war, you know it can be a pain to pick up the ammo lying all over the ground. Out of Darts shows us how a tool designed for picking up acorns does the trick brilliantly – especially when it comes to those NERF Rival balls. And it handily beats NERF’s own picker-upper.
Engineer James Bruton is always building amazing things in his workshop. He recently got his hands on a LiDAR scanner unit which can enable 3D computer vision and capture navigational data. He used the device to guide a robot that looks for movement all around it, then turns to fire at what it detected. Demo starts at 17:54.
NERF enthusiast Walcom S7 shows off the Rival Roundhouse XX-1500, a freakishly oversized, single-shot revolver that can carry up three rounds in each of its five magazines. It fires at up to 90 feet-per-second, and includes 15 Rival rounds. Given its size, it’s ideal for big hands.
NERF is showing off a line of toy blasters inspired by Halo. The coolest looking is the MicroShots Needler, which sadly doesn’t shoot homing spikes, followed by a motorized UNSC MA40 assault rifle. There’s also a mini SPNKR, a single shot weapon that holds a pair of darts. All three drop on 10/1/2020, just in time for Halo:Infinite.
This badass NERF drum-spinner weapon offers two modes of fire – a shot at a time from its trigger, or all 20 darts in rapid-fire sequence with a pull on the slam-fire handle. It comes with 20 Mega Whistler darts which make a whistling sound as they fly through the air.
NERF’s toy arsenal gets bigger and badder thanks to the N-Strike Elite Titan CS-50. It’s a minigun-style launcher that can fires eight darts per second from its spinning barrel. It has a 50 dart capacity, and comes with 50 foam projectiles and a shoulder strap to carry some of its weight.
SoSickWithIt’s nifty 3D-printed accessory converts your existing NERF guns into badass new mega weapons. The connector slides into rails to join up to four weapons into one, so you can quickly switch when one runs out of ammo. There’s also a two-weapon version top/bottom in top/bottom or side-by-side configs.
Sean’s Crafts loves to build things out of cardboard, rubber bands, and other low-budget household items. Here, he shows off a homebrew weapon he built that can hold and fire up to six NERF foam darts. Its revolver doesn’t automatically turn, but it’s still pretty nifty.
There are lots of NERF blasters out there that can fire in rapid succession, but the majority can still only fire one dart at a time. James Bruton shows off an enormous custom NERF weapon he built that can fire 10 foam projectiles simultaneously. Each bank of darts is loaded into a magazine that rotates into place to be fired by rollers.
For this dangerous looking build, Giaco Whatever created a really neat NERF weapon – a remote-controlled, CO2-powered bomb which can be placed on the ground, and fires a dozen or so darts in every direction. As an added bonus, he shot a little action movie to go with.
Maker Ivan Miranda played around with a couple of NERF Rival Kronos blasters and decided that he could do it better. So he set about building a gigantic, vacuum-powered version that can fire of 10 rounds of ammo per second, at speeds over 62mph. We wish he made it fire actual NERF ammo though.
“I’m not gonna ship you guys something you can’t hurt yourself with.” Sufficiently Advanced made a modded NERF gun that shoots electrified darts. His latest version features contact points wide enough to momentarily shock people. Check out the build at 0:58, and the tests at 5:23.
Based on a design by NERF fanatic Captain Slug, this epic custom blaster comes as a build-it-yourself kit from Hong Kong Etsy shop AKBlasterMOD. You can find more of Slug’s foam-firing weapons on his own Etsy shop, including a more basic version of the ESPER, fully assembled for just $70.
Captain Xavier shows off one of the coolest NERF builds we’ve ever seen – a Rival minigun that can fire up to 20 rounds per sec, and up to 2000 rounds from a backpack ammo supply. Even if it didn’t work, we’d be intimidated by its looks. Firing demo starts at 18 minutes.
I did a thing bought some tampons. But that’s not the only thing that the YouTuber shows off in his video, the highlight of which is a high-powered NERF weapon that he modded to fire the feminine hygiene products as its projectiles using compressed air. Don’t try this at home.
