Possibly the Best Nerf Gun Mods – Ever.

You remember Nerf Guns. Everyone has had one. We remember fond memories as a child, wish soft squishy nerf darts, chasing each other and laughing. Well these Nerf guns are like none of those. These take your old Nerf guns lunch money, and stuffs them in a locker, successfully scarring them for life. These nerf gun mods are awesome deadly killing machines!!

Nerf guns are terribly fun out of the box, and you can play with them for hours! Shooting co-workers, siblings, cats, dogs, mailmen. You name it – Shooting it with a nerf gun = Fun.

However, Natural instincts of Humans (mostly geeks) get bored with the out of the box Nerf guns. We hunger for more power, speed, accuracy. So we either put the Nerf gun in the corner and never play with it again, or, we do the alternative. Mod the ever living crap out of it!! Sit back and enjoy these freaking awesome Nerf Gun Mods!! However, Don’t try this at home, Unless you are AWESOME.

Best & Baddest Nerf Gun Mods

500 Round Per Minute Dart Chaingun Hack

The Nerf Vulcan out of the box, actually shoots pretty slow, and is awfully disappointing since it looks completely huge and awesome. But these guys made it shoot 500 RPM!! However, this is only the beginning, the folks at http://www.manapotions.com/ are devoted to their Nerf Vulcan Mod – and have improved it even more! As you will see in the next video. However, that human nature of geeks that we mentioned earlier urged them to hold a contest to see if anyone could beat 600 RPM!

600 Round Per Minute Dart Chaingun Contest

The contest produced another awesome mod as a result – which you will see in the next video :).

Dual-Can Vulcan turret – 1000 rounds per minute

This is awesome. What is better than 1 500 RPM Vulcan mod? TWO! They managed to seamlessly integrate 2 beast nerf guns into 1! I am sure it is not fun to get pelted by all those high powered nerf darts, hilarious to watch, nonetheless!

Nerf sentry gun with image recognition

This is probably one of my favorite Nerf Gun Mods EVER. Simply because it involves so much nerdyness, technology, and awesomeness to create. It was created by Jeremy Blum and Jason Wright as a final project for Cornell University’s CS1114 Matlab Robotics class. The end result is the type of security ever toy store should have.

Radio Controlled Nerf Vulcan Tank

This is another awesomely techy Nerf Mod. It has Radio controls, a web cam, laser sights, and the ability to play music – the Vulcan is temporarily modified with a servo for remote firing. The sound system is an amplifier and some speakers hooked up to an iPod. You can even check out how this one was made!

Nerf Maverick “air taser” for $25

This one just sounds dangerous lol. You can check out how this one is made as well!

Nintendo Zapper Nerf Gun


This one is ultimately useless, but I had to include it for the 8-Bit NES Throwback! Who would have thought of using a zapper for this!?

Nerf Maverick Steampunk Mod


Some Nerf Gun Mods don’t do anything cool, but they sure look BADASS! This is one that I particularly like the look of – I am a big fan of steampunk in general. I thought this one was well done – There are a lot of these artsy mods floating around as well, so if you want to see more check out Deviant Art for more artsy nerf gun mods, This one was found there, and was done by ~aimeekitty.

Maybe Nerf Gun Mods Aren’t Your Thing…

Obviously the Nerf Gun Modding community is thriving with awesome nerf gun mods – a simple youtube search will yield you a TON of modded nerf guns, ranging from the awesome ones that we just saw, to the less awesome, but still creative ones.

However, even if you don’t like the nerf guns, you may still like the bullets, so why not build your own gun to fire nerf darts!? That is what some of the following people did. Check them out!

Home Made Dart Gun 210 feet+

This is a totally custom gun that can shoot Nerf Darts up to 210 feet!!! That is pretty impressive, since they typically do not shoot that far lol.

Worlds Most Powerful Nerf Gun

This one is kind of cheating, because they are just stuffing a nerf dart in a real gun. but watching these dudebros hurt their friend with it is pretty entertaining lol.

Maybe you don’t like Nerf at All…

Maybe you just want to build a toy-like gun that does something totally awesome!? There are also some AWESOME non-nerf mods in there, such as the Rubber Band Shooter (of death) and a Lego gun that shoots Legos!

Maybe you are just into the modding scene in general! Check these out as well if you are into the modding of just about anything! The following videos will definitely bring your Inner Destructive Geek some Joy ;).

Disintegrator: 24 Barrels of Rubber Bandy Death

All I can say for this one is… Pfft. Wow. Have you ever been hit with a rubber band? Of course you have. It hurts. Well this boasts a 288-band capacity and 40-round-per-second firing capability. Consider all that wrath coming at you at once? If you die can I have your Xbox? No Seriously, it would hurt, Bad. But the video makes it look ridiculously fun to use.

Fully Automatic LEGO Gun

This probably wouldn’t hurt too bad, compared to the last gun – However it is still awesome, and looks like it took quite a while to build!!

That is enough nerdy nerf gun mods and other awesome modded stuff for one post!
