Armageddon XV (15), The Biggest West Coast NIC War, Is Scheduled for June 21, 2014

Music Video Recap for Armageddon 14 (2013)

In case my Southern California readers weren’t aware of this, the biggest (or arguably biggest) Nerf War on the NIC Modding Community is coming up this Saturday, June 21 2014. This has been a long time tradition (we’re on number 15 now!) with usually someone SCUN related hosting them.

This year it’s a bit special, we have Langley (one of the Nerf Haven Forum Creators) flying in from New Jersey to host and play! We also have people coming in from the Arizone, Utah, and San Francisco areas.

In case your not familiar with what the NIC is, it stands for Nerf Internet Community. While the internet has connected and help popularize “mainstream Nerfing” (Nerf with clip/mag fed blasters, Nerf blasters being modded and used for Wars) the term NIC within the NIC usually stands for blasters exhibiting higher power. Blasters and darts are often homemade. What rate of fire and ammo capacity is a little behind most Elite blasters, they make up for in range and accuracy.

I’ve been playing Nerf for about 5 years now, but I’ve never been to an Armageddon event. This year, I plan on changing that! I want to get better as a player, an event organizer, and experience a little different side of Nerf. Feel free to come and play Nerf, say hi to me and other Nerfers, and generally have a good time. I’ll be the guy wearing a panda hat and something panda related. 32 different people have marked themselves down as going on the Nerf Haven Forum topic, and some people are even bringing or inviting more.

To check out rules and what you need to bring, and see who’s marked themselves down as going, look at the rest on the post below or read here.

You can view the weather forecast for that day right here.

For a few videos of past events, check out SCUN’s Youtube channel.

Keep an eye out on my blog and Youtube channel for my loadout video and what I plan on bringing to the event.

Basic Nerf 8/25/13 Nerf War Video Footage & Recap

Nerf War TDM- Enemies At The Front (Rapidstrike CS-18 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 1)

Hey everyone, in case your not subscribed to my Youtube channel at this point, I would highly recommend you do so. But anyways this is my first event that I took the Rapidstrike to. It was the first event of many that it took to get used to this blaster and use it properly. We played five games that day, but I only uploaded four since one of them was a bit boring to watch. I hope you guys enjoy the videos!

This game is from a series of games that I played on August 25, 2013. It’s also my first Nerf event using the Rapidstrike blaster. It’s running 3 Trustfire batteries at 12.6v. I admit, it took me months and most of 2013 to get a good handle on the Rapidstrike and what it can and can’t do.

Nerf War TDM – 2 Shields vs. None (Rapidstrike CS-18 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 2)

My struggling Nerf skills & a Rapidstrike vs. two shields. Who wins?

P.S. Not a fan of shields in Nerf Wars.

Humans vs. Zombies Mini Game 8/25/13 – Can’t Touch This (Rapidstrike 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 4)

The rules we came up with for this specific game on that day.

- There must be one human or more at the end of ten minutes for the humans to win.
– Zombies must tag all the humans before the time limit is up to win.
– Zombies take 3 hits to stun.
– Stun time is 30 seconds.

In this game, I also see what the Rapidstrike can do in HvZ situations.

Nerf War Siege 8/25/13 – Meet My Rapidstrike (Rapidstrike 12.6v Gameplay) (Game 5)

If you get within a certain distance of a Rapidstrike, you’re probably going to get hit. I show that off here in this video.

Rules for Siege:

Siege the Fort is a very simple game. There are two teams, attackers and defenders. The attacking team starts off with 2 or 3 people, and have one hit on them. When they are hit, they must go back and touch their spawn point to re-enter the game.

The defenders start off on the playground equipment or in a defensive position/area. They have 3 hits on them. When they are hit 3 times, they must go touch the respawn point, and then join the attacking team. The attacking team tries to convert all the defenders to attackers, and the defending team tries to stay alive as long as possible. You can edit the defender goal to have them try and survive a certain amount of time in order to give them a victory condition.

The Basic Nerf 2012 Nerf War/HvZ/Melee Battle Recap Video

Well it took me a couple of months, but I finally finished my recap video! This video is made up of almost 100 percent Nerf War videos shot with a GoPro Hero2. The clips were recorded from June until December. In this video you’ll see Stampede, Rampage, Rayven, Pyragon, Snapfire 8, Hail-Fire, Alpha Trooper, Retaliator, and many more blasters being used by myself and others. You’ll also see head shots, dodging, rushing, diving, a couple of melee attacks, and a couple of funny moments. I would love to tell you more, but I feel like I’ve spoiled the video enough. Please let me know what you think of it!

Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies Winter 2012 – Game 1 Missions (Video)

Game 1, Part 1/3 – Harassed By Zombies

This isn’t a recap post, but I’ve finally uploaded some video from the Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies Winter 2012 games. This is Day 1/Game 1 missions. I won’t spoil anything, but I will say that I find watching these videos very enjoyable. If you haven’t heard of Camarillo Humans vs. Zombies, check out the video and see how we play our day long HvZ games!

The Camarillo HvZ is a biannual event usually held once in the summer and once in the winter. The game is a modified version of HvZ, as it is not played on a college campus but rather in Mission Oaks park. It is the biggest open Nerf related event in Southern California. This Day 1/Game 1 had 81 people signed up to play game the first game day, which was the second largest game in Camarillo History at the time. 87 people signed up to play during the second game on the 23rd, which makes it the largest Camarillo HvZ game in history.

Basic Nerf War 1/6/13 Videos (My First Nerf Wars of 2013)

Nerf War TDM – Elite Rayven 8.4v Gameplay (Game 1)

First game with the Elite Rayven. The ranges on an Elite Rayven running 8.4v are about 5-10 feet better then it’s stock voltage. Also, I like the faster spin up time. Game 1 of 5 that we played that day.

My first game of 2013!

If you haven’t been keeping up with my Youtube Channel, then you might have missed my first batch of 2013 GoPro recorded Nerf Wars. Check my channel for them (and more!) or keep reading this post to see the rest of the games.

Nerf War/Scavenger Hunt – Leading The Team (Elite Rayven Gameplay) (Game 2)

So before the game, I thought it was a good idea for the girls with their lesser skills to go around solving the riddles and collecting the items for the team, while the guys protected them and held off attackers. There were 7 items to collect, and if your team collects the majority of them then your team wins the game. Items dropped off at your base are safe and can not be taken by the other team.

It was 5 of our team, vs 6 of the other team.
