My friends and I really got into Assassin's Creed, so we started making a lot of stuff inspired by our favorite hooded assassin. In this Instructable, I'll be going over how to make a hidden Nerf gun, perfect for both concealed takedowns and for always having one (or two!) extra shot in a Nerf war.

Step 1: Step 1: What You Need

The majority of this stuff is pretty inexpensive, and you can find most of the materials at a Lowe's or Home Depot (other than the Nerf gun, of course!):

TOOLS
Rivet Gun
Phillips Head Screwdriver
Hot Glue Gun (or other glue)
Rotary Tool (Dremel or similar)
Scissors

MATERIALS
Black Spray Paint (Optional, but highly recommended)
Tape (any kind that you can get paint on and remove)
4 1/8 Inch Rivets
8 Size 5 or 6 Flat Washers (5 is preferred, but harder to find)
4 Single Hole Pipe Clamps
Velcro Strap (the kind that comes in a loop like tape)
Nerf Secret Strike AS-1

Step 2: Step 2: Remove the Casing

To start, remove the four screws on the casing on the Nerf gun. You'll be left with a very steampunk-esque orange Nerf blaster.

Step 3: Step 3: Grind Away the Webbing

The next thing you need to do is use your rotary tool to remove the webbing between the top and bottom pipes. This is important because the strap clamps won't fit properly on the Nerf gun unless you do this.

BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO GRIND INTO THE TOP OR BOTTOM PIPE! If you do, no matter how many times you pump the gun, it won't fire again. I have a picture of where I messed up the first time; please, learn from my mistakes! The important thing is to remove the majority of the webbing without accidentally grinding into the pipes, so don't sweat it if you didn't grind the webbing away perfectly! See the last picture to see what I mean.

Step 4: Step 4: Paint the Pipes (Optional)

Next, unless you like the orange pipe look, you'll want to paint the gun at this point. Any spray paint will do fine, in whatever color you want. I used black because that felt more assassin-like to me.

In some of my pictures you'll notice I have tape around the front of the barrel, the top of the button, and the end of the pump; this is to keep paint off them when I spray paint it. Keeping the button and pump the original color was personal preference, but I HIGHLY recommend you keep the tip of the barrel orange. This is technically a gun, so keeping the tip orange is a way of showing it's a toy.

Step 5: Step 5: Prepare the Velcro Straps

Because there are four straps, you'll have to follow these next three steps four times to make four straps.

Cut out a length of the Velcro strap about four and a half inches long.

Next, you need to put a small hole in the end for the strap assembly to be built around. Bend about half an inch over the end of one side of the strap (like in the picture) and then cut in the middle of the bend to make a hole. You want to make as small a hole as you can so the rivet fits in it snugly.

Step 6: Step 6: Construct the Straps

Now we need to put all the parts together to make a strap.

To make a single strap (again, you'll be making four), you need your Velcro strap, one pipe clamp, two washers, and a single rivet.

Put the Velcro strap over the top of the hole on the pipe clamp soft/fuzzy side down (see the picture to make sure you get this right).

Put a washer over the rivet, and then slip the end of the rivet through the hole and strap from the bottom (again, see the picture).

Put the second washer on the other side where the rivet pokes through the Velcro.

Step 7: Step 7: Rivet the Strap Assembly

Take your rivet gun and mount the assembly on it such that the washer on the Velcro side won't fall off, and then just pull the trigger to rivet the whole thing together.

That's everything you need to do to make one strap! Again, you'll need four of these, so repeat the past few steps until you have four. Remember to have the soft part of the Velcro strap facing down and to put the strap on the top of the pipe clamp's hole.

Once you've made four, move on to the next step!

Step 8: Step 8: Glue the Straps Onto the Nerf Gun

When you get to this step, you need to stop and decide which arm you want this gun to fit on, if you haven't thought about it already. These instructions are for a hidden gun that fits on your left arm; to make one for your right, simply put the straps on the opposite side.

Start by putting a nice glob of glue inside the loop of the pipe clamp. Any kind of glue will work, but be very careful if you decide to use hot glue! The pipe clamp is made of metal, so if you use hot glue, the metal will get hot! I personally used hot glue and then handled the assembly with gloves, but it might be safer to use other strong kinds of glue.

Next, simply push the clamp over either the top or bottom pipe of the Nerf gun. You'll need two on both the top and bottom. Make sure that the top left and the bottom left (and top right and bottom right) straps are lined up so that the straps will overlap when you go to put the hidden gun on!

Step 9: Step 9: Complete!

After the glue dries, you're finished! Just push the gun up against your wrist and wrap the Velcro straps around your arm tightly to make sure it stays on.

Pump the forward pump several times to ready your hidden gun and press the button on the top when you are ready to fire. Make sure to bend your wrist away from the gun so the dart doesn't hit your hand.

I hope you have enjoyed this Instructable, and I hope this helps you with any Assassin- or Nerf War-related activities you participate in!
<p>Dude, that's legit!</p><p>Great job man</p>
That looks so cool!☺
<p>pew pew :3</p>
It's a nerf nstrike secret strike as 1, took me a bit to find the model, doing a blow gun mod wanting to use the trigger and air tank on it, http://www.amazon.com/Hasbro-Nerf-N-Strike-Secret-Strike/dp/B002MRQHNI
Cool but how to shoot???
More like spiderman to me
<p>what type of nerf did you use?! <br></p>
you should mod this to be an airsoft gun (if you don't know how look up a tutorial on YouTube
This is like the hidden gun from brotherhood
But that gun is also from ac2
Also I'm just using my moms phone fiy
I just got done with brotherhood it was epic! You should also make a real hidden blade!
I'm confused on how to fire
Nice work
I just stared playing assassins creed and am working for money to get the gun
Added to my Assassin's Creed collection, assuming you don't mind of course. <br> <br>https://www.instructables.com/id/Assassins-Creed-7/
Awesome
When grinding at her webbing, could you use sand paper to do the close work on the barrel?
to fire, would one simply hit where the button-trigger-whatever is with their other hand?
how about you make a button that shoots the dart to replace the pump thing
duuuuuude! thats awesome! the seniors at my school do the Nerf Assassins game, this, shall be my weapon! i should see if i could hook it up to a 12 gram co2 cartridge!
you should make one where the button is in between the gun and your wrist and you flex the muscles in your wrist to fire. that would be amazing.
now you should make the airsoft version
Where did u find the nerf gun
you can find them at target walmart and for sure ebay
are u selling to me or not <br>
are u interested in selling the one u made to me for a good price cause i have some probloms making mine reply me at u.badaru@live.com
no video *okay*<br>
Cool. How much money is the NERF gun you used?
it's only a couple of dollars if you are in the USA, but to get one in Europe it's a little harder.... :(
I don't think that matters it' s really cool
you forgot about ASSASINS CREED III, and the movie .
