It’s been an interesting saga for the people behind Banned Blasters, but their crowdfunding campaign is now live. The blaster (they’re tweaking their prototype prior to a production run of injection molded blasters) is similar to a high performance Stryfe, but with several differences. A dual stage trigger, for one. Short darts only, as well (after much community feedback). And, possibly the most interesting development, 200fps out of a single flywheel stage!
There was a bit of a misfire in starting the campaign – originally, it was supposed to be on Kickstarter; Kickstarter banned the project for being a weapon (in spite of other blasters being crowdfunded there before). To their credit, the people making this blaster (who have been somewhat active on Nerf-related discords and other places concerning development) are staying with the “Fixed Goal” model, so that people won’t be charged if they don’t meet the goal.
There are also several options available, depending on how many blasters you want to get – if you and several friends want one, you could pool together for one of the higher perks and get these for less money per blaster.
