Top Four Nerf Guns for an Intermediate Modder
The FuryFire is basically a more buff Maverick. A single fire, reverse plunger blaster, the FuryFire is a large capacity heavy pistol that essentially has the Maverick’s internals but with a better plunger seal that gives it a bit more accuracy and range. Some modders feel that the FuryFire is easier than a Maverick, while others say it’s slightly harder due to its hidden screws and fragility.
Re-released in 2012, the FuryFire can be ordered online or found in stores like Walmart.
There are a lot of things that can be done to a Recon, but this assault rifle/heavy pistol is somewhat notorious for being a more difficult gun to mod. For example, the Recon’s air restrictor cannot be simply removed but must be drilled out, while alterations like a breech mod involve destroying some stock parts.
Found online and in stores for an average retail price of about $20, the Recon is a good choice for intermediate modders to try more technical mods on. There are also upgrade kits available that can help make modifying a Recon somewhat easier.
Basically a Recon that can change modes and shoot faster because of pump action, the Deploy has a similar reputation of being tricky to mod. Often cited challenges include flimsiness, needing a drill for modification, and being difficult to open up due to its “transforming” abilities. When modifying this blaster, some modders prefer to forgo the “Flashlight mode” entirely and hot glue their Deploy into “Blaster mode”.
A favorite of the sci-fi and military mod community, the Longshot ranges from intermediate to advanced thanks to the challenge of fitting its complex internals back together. In addition, modding the Longshot should not be undertaken unless you’re fairly confident in your abilities as it is difficult to obtain and a very valuable gun. This is largely because Longshots are no longer manufactured in the US and are often priced at more than $100 online.
