MEGA CycloneShock - Behind the Blaster

Warriors: I think I'll finally get some of those reviews up at the end of the week.

In the mean time, I've got a pretty fun sneak peak to throw your way. Our friends at NERF wanted you to get an early look at their latest video. Check out the excitement that some of the team at NERF HQ have for the MEGA Cyclone Shock!


I think the CycloneShock is actually pretty exciting. Yeah, maybe it can't really knock over humongous signs like they show in the video, but it sure can make the enemy duck on the battlefield. More to come on that! ~Chris

My First HvZ Experience - Meet Game of Foams

I know, warriors. I still didn't get our next review up. Forgive me. We've had more fires ignite in Colorado and I was a little tied up in my day job with some repercussions of that. No worries though, the firefighters got them out fairly quickly and no one in our region has lost homes to wildfire this year so far.

In good news, I do have a new video for you! We had a great time with a company called Game of Foams that is putting on short-form HvZ-styled events they call Survivors versus Zombie. They let us come up to Longmont and play with them, getting this footage to boot. It was a great opportunity to see how the ECS Cam Blaster would actually behave in a dusk setting outdoors. So I ran that with a dual banana "clip" I taped together after ganking them from a couple of our Demolishers.. Check out the results (below the jump)!!

New Logo?

What's up, warriors? I'll tell you what's up: a new logo. We've been wanting to get a badge design going for a while now and to update our current logo a bit. So we finally pulled the trigger. Our designer came back to me with a few designs. We've narrowed it down between a few and will likely make a decision soon! What do you think? ~Chris




Detroit Dart Club

Greetings Warriors! As you know, we've been monitoring businesses popping up all over that offer NERF warfare as a service. A few months back, Vas the Stampede over at Foam From Above pointed us in the direction of the Detroit Dart Club. This past January, we had a chance to travel there and see what it's all about.

Connor McGaffey is bringing his dream to life. Detroit Dart Club started up in August of 2014 and has been making great strides ever since. Check out the episode after the jump!

Dart Warz is coming




Warriors,

Last year I got the chance to go hang out with the creators and the staff at Dart Warz during their epic inter-store tournament. They brought their store staff out from Meridian, ID to battle their store staff in Centennial, CO. It was an epic day of foam carnage. Warriors gave their all and it showed.

Due to loads of unforeseen circumstances, I dropped the ball on bringing you the epic goodness of that video along with bunches of other stuff on the blog. Well, now... it's coming.

Could it be that another tournament is coming too?

Motivation Behind the Flipfury

Greetings Warriors! Long time, no talk...

Click Click BAMF has been on a hiatus for just about six months now. Waaaaaay longer than ever intended. We'll be working to remedy that starting now.  Speaking of which:

Have you seen the new behind-the-scenes video from NERF? Check it.


This is a pretty darn cool blaster that has been hitting stores early this year and, in some places, late last year. The utility of the flipping chambers means that you have twice as many shots as the Strongarm to empty at your enemy.

This wouldn't be the ideal blaster to try carrying around as a secondary, but is it tempting enough to make your main on a battlefield? People are loving it at the Detroit Dart Club:



Warriors, we are using this month to gear back up and get some thing ready for production. What is it you might want to see the most? Any reviews your really hoping for? Events? Click one of those social buttons on the right side of the screen -or, you know, comment! ~Chris

Rhino-Fire Pre-orders Are Live!

Warriors! Have you seen the news? The Rhino-Fire is listed for pre-order exclusively at Walmart.com. The nice news that comes along with it is the $89.97 price tag. I don't know if that price will remain after the pre-order period. After all, it was set to be listed at $99.99 when first announced.

Check out their promo video from the Nerf facebook page too:
Post by Nerf.



Sean Hollister at Gizmodo got a chance to review this one early. He labels the Rhino-Fire as the Most Badass Foam Blaster Ever Built. That might be jumping the gun just a little bit, but I'm glad to know it's still setting off geek sensors :)

The two-stage trigger might take some getting used to since most of us have grown accustomed to the flywheel activators that are native to all the other N-Strike Elite flywheel blasters. Also, with the accuracy problems that Hollister notes, the Most Badass award may have issues too.

Can't wait to put this through our combine of tests! ~Chris
