Nerf Loadouts #1: Support (Sniping and Machine gunning)

H&K support loadouts

Supportive positions are positions that cover the main squad and weaken the opponents. (Snipers and machinegunners) I have got inspiration to make loadout posts from CPL nerf: (

Clip system

Elite soldier
This loadout allows you to snipe/spray using the new elite boasters.
Main: Retaliator/Longshot (I prefer using the iron sights on the included barrel. Stampede bipod grip would be a good Idea. The stock is also a good idea)
Sidearm:Nerf Stryfe/Stockade/Barricade
Advantages: Loose position that is good for anything. Range
Disadvantages: Limited Dart compatibly, really bulky. Reloading takes forever (stockade/barricade)

Heavy to the max
Just spray. You have a lot of ammo!
Main: Hailfire
Side: Recon/Retaliator (Pistol mode)
Advantages: High Range, sidearm and main use clips (shared ammo pool) High ROF, Ammo would last for a long time.
Disadvantages: Low accuracy, only use clip system darts, Vulnerable when reloading, Hailfire can only use flat clips (no 36 dart drums), Semi auto only, Roombas are not exactly intimidating

LMG guy
Need more intimidation?
Main:Stampede (bipod, shield, a few 36 dart drums
Side: Any traditional revolver (Maverick)
Advantages: High ROF, full auto, uses all darts, uses clips, high capacity, Intimidating
Disadvantages: Bulky, short range.

Belt Fed

Machinegun preacher
You know you are f&.?ed when you see this.
Side:traditional revolver
Advantages:F@?$ing intimidating, high ROF, accepts most ammo types
Disadvantages: long reload time, bad ranges , accuracy=retarded, bulky

Full Rambo
Cuz 1 Vulcan isn't enough
Main: Two vulcans
Advantages: Very scary, Really High ROF, Massive capacity, most ammo types are accepted
Disadvantages:Bad Accuracy, Bad ranges, Reloading will take generations, Really bulky.


The Range master:
Still, cheaper than a elite

Advantages: Range, accuracy, cheap as hekk
Disadvantages: Low ROF. Single shot

Just having big bones
The Titan's ranges are really high

Disadvantages: Low ROF, Requires pump, rockets are hard to find

Nerf Retaliator Review/Tatics

Nerf Retaliator Review!

My Nerf Retaliator in all of it's glory.

The Nerf Retaliator is Hasbro's attempt to make something that looks more like a real assault rifle (Long clip, assault handle and even a badass iron sight!). That is heading in the right direction due to the fact that the Nerf retaliator is shooting at more that 30 ft (More than the lengh of my garden!) and it would easily qualify a designated marksman's rifle (as I am complying to nerfhaven's #1 rule, there are no snipers in nerf!) for nerf wars. It is a elite version of the recon even doesn't have the same feel to an good old Nerf Recon Too bad it doesn't come with a scope. On to the features!
  • Slide Priming (Remind me with bolt action mods later!)
  • 12 dart Magazine, a balance in between a under-achieving 6 dart magazine that is only good for that "Awesome sniper" feel and a 18 dart magazine which is too large, especially when in pistol mode or when prone.)
  • Sturdier Stock compared to the Recon. Now you can go on your sniping misadventures without breaking your 60th replacement recon stock!
  • Assault grip, now you can break into a room FBI style!
  • 12 elite darts to fit your badass 12 dart magazine the correct way (not using those low quality normal clip system darts)
  • Backwards compatibility of all components! Now you can use those retarded clip system darts in your retaliator if you run out of elite ammo and you can use elite ammo & mags with older blasters so you can give it a last "kick" with more power before you trade it out into nerfhaven or somewhere else if you want to.
Range: 10/10: Hitting 60 feet parallel to ground (PTG) and 75 ft angled (ATG).
Rate Of Fire: 6/10 Pistol slide is not exactly really great for rate of fire. Attaching a PVC pipe, wood piece  etc. to make a bolt would be nice.
Reliability: 9/10 This gun almost never jams. Human error may cause some jams (inserting dart backwards)
Accuracy: 10/10 Hit a target the size of a 6 dart clip within 1-2 shots at 15 ft.
Capacity: 10/10 Accepts 35 dart drums. If you want to know the stock capacity: it is 12 darts. Slightly more than the stockade's 10. (2 darts)
Overall: 9/10 A good choice to get. Great for beginners.
