Then I tried out the Jolt. Now I can't get them to NOT stick... so what does this tell me? These Suction Darts can be FIRED from every blaster... but unless it's a weaker shot, they won't stick like they should. Disgruntled, I made a video about this.
Shortly after, RandomShadow09 explained this to me in a comment on the video.
Get 15ft or more away from the window and try again. With Elite blasters you have to be far enough away from your target that the dart sheds a ton of velocity before it hits or you get the result you had. It's dumb, but that's the only way they work. I tried this out on a smooth wooden door, painted wall, and glass. Once you're far enough away they will stick similar to the old ones.He's right on the money, after I tested at longer ranges... but I was shooting much further than 15 feet to get the "stick" I was looking for. It's still not as consistent as I would like. At least, in my experience, longer shots have a better chance of sticking. It's still not what I signed up for with these darts, but I suppose it'll have to do.
My opinion? If you want Suction Darts that work like the old ones used to, you're better off sticking (literally) with those. The new ones work, but under certain circumstances that sort of takes the "fun" out of it.
