Hot Glue tipped Streamlines

I took the plunge, and filled the tips of 18 streamlines with hot glue. Here are the results:

Stock AT: No distinct range/power difference, but a MASSIVE accuracy change - much, much better. Love the noise when it hits a target, too.
Modded NF: Scary. More power than Suctions, and hurts much more.
Modded Maverick: Wow. Better range and accuracy than Whistlers.
Stock Spectre: More range than Whistlers, but less accurate.
Stock Deploy: Better range, more consistency and more accuracy. All round win.
Stock LS: Less range, more accuracy. I'm confused.
Uber 4B: Epic win. Punches through cardboard.

I believe that the LS does not work with hot glue Streamlines properly because the loading mechanism does not push the dart in all the way, and hence less air pushes the dart. I could be very wrong.

For science, I decided to shoot myself at point blank range. It really hurts, even from the AT, and even through clothing!

All in all, good and easy mod, and excellent benefits. If only it weren't so tedious.


  1. do you think poly-cement would work?

  2. Anything that fills space and adds weight (only a little) is fine. I just use hot glue because its cheap and easy to use.

  3. The Uber 4B is crazy to punch through cardboard!!

  4. Hey I am the one above. Can these punch through windows??

    1. With a high enough power blaster, yes.
      With something like a Titan or Hydro Cannon you could break through a thin sheet of glass, but anything thicker will probably require something so powerful it will be completely illegal.
