Introduction: How to Make Your NERF Guns Smoke After Firing

Picture of How to Make Your NERF Guns Smoke After Firing

One day i was firing my NERF Guns, and a bullet flew into a spot with a bunch of dust bunnies. I walked over to get the bullet,  fired it again, and "POOF!" It looked like it the gun had emitted exhaust. I thought to myself, "That was just about the coolest thing ever..." and tried it again. It works almost every time. Just rub your bullets into a bunch of dust bunnies, and fire it. I think it works best with the Recon, or the Longshot.

Step 1: Grab Some Bullets...

Get a couple of bullets. I think that streamlines work best.

Step 2: Dust 'em Up!

Grab your darts, and rub them in some dust. On top of your TV (unless you have a flat screen.) should be pretty dusty. Otherwise, check out on top of bookshelves, cabinets, or other flat surfaces.

Step 3: Load Your Gun!

Load your bullets into the clip. The dust will stay one them good, if you're careful. Then put it in your Recon. If you don't see much of a cloud, that probably means you didn't put enough dust on them.

If there IS a big cloud, It's pretty cool, no?

*PSSSSST! Hey! YOU! Here's a little tip when you're using guns that use the clips! Point the little hole on the top of the dart DOWN while you're loading them. It gives them more accuracy..*

This is so cool! It's also WAY better than the cheap gun you can buy at Walmart. Thank you!!

Nice! makes it look realy cool! and having the little hole on the dart down realy does help!

Im not sure about this, but i think it makes it weaker.

It might be my recon though.
