Battening the hatches, Sir.

Simply put the group started regular meetups in May, and since then these are pretty much the group shots from our season thus far. You can see the various weaponry, the numbers, the faces. And you can see the regulars, the rookies, and some of the folks who make it to Chicagoland when they can. Some of us cross state borders, some of us have seen more of 294 in the past few months than they have the previous few years of life. We mod. We meet. We prime. We play.

Winter won't stop us. See you inside. Nerf on!

Results from Florida! NDTL


As it saddens me to hear the Chicago team (Nerfinators) didn't come out on top, big congratulations to the Utah regional champs, the "Determinators" in the 13-17 age group! First Nerf Dart Tag League champs EVER, and with $25,000 to split amongst the four of them.

That's right, what started way back in July in Chicago has finally reached the end. Keep nerfin', and if anything else gets shuttled my way I'll be sure to post!

Have you checked the calendar?

The Nerf Dart Tag League comes to a thrilling finish this weekend! The Chicago winners, the Nerfinators, are going to rep Chicago versus the winners from the other stops! One shot, one team, one final chance at a Nerf Championship title. More later this week!

Listen up, Rookie!

Just so there's no misunderstanding, we talk about using nerf toys. We use nerf toys. But, we also mod our blasters to shoot harder, faster, and stronger. Our ammo is altered using some kinda added weight covered in hot glue in order to compensate for the added push. Below, is an image of a welt on bare skin.

So if you find us at a location and want to join in, know what you're getting into. If we're not using stock ammo, be safe and play smart.
