A crazy all around shield. What if someone shoots upwards to try and hit you?

Wink the finished version has a roof. (and windows and doors for that matter) so I should be alright, if I don't get to that in time then I'll just have to add another hate crime poster that bans it.

Here is my entry:

The idea was simple, I wanted to make something that gave you the biggest ammo capacity possible whilst keeping you as mobile and clutter free as possible. I also wanted to ensure that when you went for a fresh magazine you would be guaranteed to be grabbing a full magazine.

So this is what I came up with......











I've taken to calling it the Ultimate Battle Pack (UBP).  It's basically a back mounted box mag holder, with added refreshments.

This version holds 13 18 round straight mags, giving you a capacity of 284 darts. It only holds 13 as I only have 13. You could make a larger version with room for more mags if you had more, you could even use the worker 22's to really increase capacity.

The build was quite simple. The main box is made out of cardboard cover in cloth tape mounted on to a Nerf Tac vest. I have then added two velcro straps to hold the box onto the body a bit better. The box opens up for loading and is closed again using velcro. This allows for easy reloading between rounds.

I have then added supports for a 2L hydration bladder on the back of the box. The tube then fastens through one of the dart holders on the front of the vest. This was added as hydration is important and putting it on this way keeps with the original idea of keeping your body clutter free.

So here it is in action.

I've done something similar for my rig (to be posted this evening), but you've got WAY more ammo in yours than mine! I love it, Davera. This is superb, and it even uses my no. 1 favourite blend of materials ^_^ I'll 100% be giving this a go!

This competition's amazing for encouraging innovation. Really good for the community.

After watching a few of your your videos justajolt I was worried we would end up with the same product. Looking forward to seeing your entry.

If you still have all those worker mags it's be great to see them used on something like my entry.


*Some people are leaving this really late *cough*justajolt*cough*.

It's getting late, so here it is! Still not original. Still not pretty. No where near the levels of innovation I've seen in other entries! But I love using it ^_^

As soon as this competition was opened, I wanted to use it as an opportunity to make something I would use and enjoy using. I'd been Nerfing with a rag-tag bunch of bits and bobs for a rig, so I decided it was time to make something to bring my favourite blasters together, along with a couple of ideas I'd had and seen which I really liked!

My new Duct tape rig is fully customised to my current needs as a Nerfer and includes loops to attach my favourite blasters so I can get to them when I need them with minimal effort and keep them loaded for the duration of a game.

The rig is designed so that blasters fall and lie where they can be easilly picked up again when released. See the seriousness of the face.

The Rayven falls to my right to be picked up by my right hand. Inspiration for this came from NoBACoN's Ultimate Soldier Loadout vid. I was struck by how easilly this guy was able to release and grab the Stryfes hanging off his left and right shoulder. The Rapidpistol lies over my chest, to be easilly collected by my left hand when needed to dart-spam, clear a corridor or provide some covering fire when moving.


The Duct-tape straps are held in place with a carefully positioned support infrastructure across the back of the rig.

The set up includes a duct tape holster for my infamous barricade.


The name's Jolt. Justajolt. Licence to look moody for the camera. Blue steel on.


Like Davera's creation, my mag box utilises the principle of gravity to feed full mags downwards, towards the front, enabling you to know you are always going to grab a full mag. Additionally, you also know where your empty mags are to cram darts into towards the late stages of a long game!


I'm totally impressed with the stuff that's been made in response to this competition! The innovation is unreal and  I think it's really good for the community ^_^

I'm surprising myself that I actually finished. The interesting thing about this holster is that it cost me nothing. The magwell of a gutted Raider, the priming slide of a Dart Tag blaster, a cotton swab container, and five screws froma junk blaster went into this. I built it for battles at my friend's house. It holds my Five by five and a clip very well. Pictures here http://imgur.com/a/LpsQ2
