Nerf War 16/1/13

I had a war with some friends on the 16th, and I managed to get 8 good games. I've decided to put them together into 3 videos, according to game type.

Game 1: FFA
Just to get everyone warmed up to the blasters and play area.

Games 2-4: Tic-Tac-Toe Domination
There was a revolving Tic Tac Toe board on the smaller of the playgrounds, and we decided to use it as a domination point. The idea was to turn all 9 spaces into the symbol of your team, either X or O. To complicate matters, because we had a prime number of players (7) I decided the last person would simply try and defend the Tic Tac Toe board. It worked surprisingly well, given the low amount of thought put in to it.

Games 5-8: Bombing Run
After a few of my friends left, we were left with just 4 people allowing for a simple 2v2.. I decided we should try out a UT2004 favourite, the Bombing Run. Essentially you have to take a central bomb (in this case a Nerf Ammo Box) to the opponent's goal square (which was drawn in the ground). To complicate matters, you could not fire while holding the bomb, so winning required real teamwork.

Nerf Vortex Pyragon Slam-Fire Demo

In this video I slam-fire the Pyragon's entire 40 disc drum in 6 seconds.
This means its maximum ROF is 6.67 discs per second, which is excellent considering its the only slam-fire blaster to do so, it rivals semi auto blasters like the Rayven and Hail-Fire, and is only exceeded by the Magstrike and possibly Rapid Fire.
