Nerf Recon CS-6 Usage Tips + CS Blaster Tips

This is my first Usage Tips post.

1) ALWAYS slide the...slide back and forth ALL THE WAY. This reduces the chance of jamming. Actually, this applies to ALL blasters of any sort.
2) Ditch the sight & light - they aren't useful in a fast-pitched battle.
3) Preferably ditch the barrel as well, it ruins your range. However, if you have good tactical rail attachments, or your Recon is unusually powerful, then you can keep the barrel on.
4) If you have a spare clip (mag), stick it in your stock. This is the key feature of the stock, and also unique in the range of interchangeable stocks.
5) Always have spare Streamline darts. There is a massive chance that your currently loaded darts will get damaged rather quickly. Although CS blasters are notorious for this, the Recon is the worst offender.
6) Beware of jams.The Recon is notorious for jamming, and when it jams, it jams hard.

CS- Blaster Notes:
6) NEVER leave your darts in your clips (mags)/drums. They will get squished over time, and increase chances of damage or jamming.
7) Do your best to use new or good condition Streamlines whenever possible - this reduces your chances of jams and improves range and accuracy.

  1. Waiting for the recon massacre kit to be released. I believe the recon needs to be heavily modded to be used in h v z or any game type that your gonna b firing 20+ feet ranges. This blaster BLOWS stock.

  2. Compared to other blasters, I heartily agree. Mine sucks.

  3. When I use the recon sights, within 2 hits, I already hit the bullseye from around 15 feet

    1. That may be all well and good, but by the time you aim down your sights, fire off a tracer shot and adjust appropriately, you're likely to have been hit several times by your target in a war situation, assuming they're not using a long reload time blaster.
      In close ranges spray and pray is more effective than accuracy.

  4. I hate the recon. The recon sucks!! I would use an AT.

  5. Should I buy a recon for the attachments. I would love to be tacticool and am thinking of buying a second hand one. Could you please post a picture of an EAT with the stock and flip-up sight and the raider/rampage ( they both look the same and have the same colour so it doesn't really matter) with flip- sight last rail, tactical light first rail and stock on back because the rampage doesn't have one. My friend already has the retaliator so I don't really feel like getting 2 of the same blasters.

    1. I don't have a Recon stock or sight any more, and my Raider is now in parts.
      If you're getting the Recon for less than ~$7ish then it's not that bad a deal, but any higher and it's not really worth it. The Recon itself is practically worthless as a blaster (as the Retaliator is readily available), and its attachments are pretty impractical.
      You really are better off getting a Retaliator, or maybe a Stockade if you really want a stock. Maybe an Elite Spectre if you're after lots of tacticool.

    2. would you recmend any blasters, that have both a stock and at least one top rail attachment. Can't really put a grip on my EAT or raider.

    3. Well there are no modern blasters that have both a stock and a top rail attachment, primarily because few blasters have stocks nowadays and fewer still have top rail attachments because Nerf are super stingy.
