Winter Nerf Game #1
Games were relatively close, so it kept things interesting as the day went on. It also gave me plenty of time to test out the Stryfe. I had two on hand. One of the blasters I kept stock while the other had all of it's safeties and locks removed. Both were running slightly higher voltages as well. I was quite glad that I used the one with the safeties out, as the player who was borrowing my other Stryfe complained of the blaster frequently locking up as a result of the dart sensor lock. This was a problem throughout the game, even with Elite Darts, Streamlines, and Glow Streamlines being used. I would recommend folks who want to use the Stryfe to simply remove these locks. I may do a tutorial on how do to this, but it's quite easy to figure out just by seeing what parts to remove from this Internals Walkthrough.
I also got to break out my Elite Longshot that I made earlier this summer. It was probably one of the more powerful blasters there and the range was hardly needed for the indoor battles. When opponents would flee outside, it was nice being able to pick them off with it's long range. I did my best to only use Elite Darts with it to help maximize it's performance, since other Streamlines tended to veer off and alter their trajectories from the high power hurling them forward. Elite Darts' improvements are vastly amplified when using more powerful blasters in my honest opinion.
We'll be playing again soon! I hope to take photos at every event we have and share them here!
