Wired Magazine has a full review of the latest in playtime warfare, the fully-automatic, battery powered Nerf Swarmfire.
Why should you care? Well, any office drone knows that when all hell breaks loose (in a non-lethal, non-Post Office kind of way) that there’s two ways to come out on top: have lots of friends (hard) or have superior firepower. In this case, the latter can be yours for about thirty bucks.
Wired‘s review covers how this is achieved …
it’s a electrically powered, fully automatic Nerf gun in the vein of the Stampede: you pull the trigger, and darts shoot forth until it runs dry. Unlike many Clip System products, however, the Swarmfire doesn’t have a clip; it has a Gatling-style bezel in front with openings for 20 darts. The most obvious benefit of this system is that you can load quickly and easily. Hastily shoving darts into a clip during a Nerf scrum is a recipe for a jammed blaster. With the Swarmfire, jamming is impossible.
So with that in mind, you can stock up on Nerf refill darts (notoriously affordable) and sit this bad boy on your desk at work. Everybody will know you are not the guy they wanna stick the last minute QA with ever, ever again.
