Introduction: Serious Nerf: Official NK3AE Heavy Uniform

PLEASE NOTE: THIS UNIFORM HAS BEEN COMPLETELY REVAMPED AND EXPANDED. YOU CAN FIND THE NEW INSTRUCTABLE HERE: https://www.instructables.com/id/Create-the-Perfect...

The NK3AE is a tactical army dedicated to advanced mil-sim Nerf wars. We have the advanced tactics, equipment, and skills necessary to win every war. Some say that it is a bad thing to go into a Nerf war with "too much equipment and tactics," but we have found otherwise. Advanced military tactics are always the key to a victory, and that fact is encompassed in our standard NK3AE uniform.


The Official NK3AE Heavy Uniform combines efficiency, capacity, and durability into one S.W.A.T. Team reminiscent outfit. It allows the user to customize what they are doing at a seconds notice. It is fairly easy to put together, and requires only a few basic materials, mainly Nerf guns. Following is a list and description of all the main things your NK3AE uniform should have.

If you do not know what the NK3AE is or are interested in enlisting please visit www.nk3ae.weebly.com and for more information.

Step 1: Upper Body Uniform-Shirt

You should have a long-sleeved camouflage shirt with multiple pockets. You should be able to keep information such as codes, a pop-up frisbee (for G1 grenades), and some Pop-It's in the chest pockets. If you are in generation one of the enlistees (already closed) you should wear your NK NerfNeck on top for identification. Otherwise, you will need your NKID only.

Step 2: Upper Body Uniform-Vest

You will need an N-Strike or N-Strike Elite Tactical Vest to wear over your shirt. You should keep as many weapons and as much ammo as possible in it. You can also add two holders on the back for Nerf swords.

Step 3: Lower Body Uniform- Pants and Belt

You will also need some camouflage pants with cargo pockets. These will allow you to carry as many supplies as possible. Also, you should have a Nerf Bandolier Kit that you can use as a belt. This will make it easier to make and carry holsters and other supplies.

Step 4: Other Uniform Essentials

Other parts to include in your uniform are:

-Paintball mask
-Hat with a brim
-Sunglasses
-Gloves (possibly with blades)
-Knee pads
-A watch
-Extra ammo
-Extra Nerf Guns (A primary and secondary). I recommend the Rapidstrike CS-18 as a primary, and the the Mega Centurion as a secondary.

Step 5: Complete

You now know the main components of the NK3AE uniform and are ready for an advanced Nerf War. Even though Nerf is serious for us, still remember, this is just a game, and it is important to have fun! Enjoy your future Nerf Wars!

4got to include in last comment: why swords and melee, just run like hell and turn and shoot at melee attacker. PS I am considering getting a demo. Is it good or is it crap.

EpicMinecrafter870 (author)2015-06-12

Wait now that I have my own army disregard my previous comments. If I do things with the NK3AE, can I show up in my own army's uniform or would I be considered enemy if I did.

Dang, that's pretty nice. Very intimidating! The only thing I'd suggest would be to paint a skeletal jawbone design on that mask. But still, it looks awesome, bro!

Thanks! That's a pretty good idea there! Also, there's an updated version to this Instructable:

Glad you did! ;)

Oh, and also how do you hang the gun on your back? I was thinking of using a Retaliator as a primary and my Raider on my back. (Oh yeah, Elite came to India, got a Retaliator, next gun would be the Hail-Fire)

author

my secondary is a quick 16 (modified) and primary ling strike with custom foam bayonet!

author

Sounds pretty epic! Sorry for the late reply...

author

No problem bro! :)

author

The Centurion over my back has a strap on it, so I wear it like a cargo bag sorta. I'll be posting an Instructable this weekend on it, so you'll see more then.

Congrats on getting Elite in India! It's suprising it took so long. I'm glad you made a good choice and got the Retaliator! It's a great gun!

But as for your next gun, I really think the RapidStrike CS-18 is a better choice. The Hail-Fire is cool with all of the ammo and everything, but it jams VERY often. Also, it is known to damage darts, and the flywheels inside become lopsided eventually, as you can hear in one of my forum topics. It's bulky, heavy, and unwieldy, and not fun to carry around for long.

On the other hand, the RapidStrike CS-18 is a gear blaster that is the same price as the Hail-Fire. It has a super fast full-auto rate of fire (4DPS), and it is lightweight and easy to use. It also has some cool features, like the clear-clip, flip up sight, and adjustable stock. Also, it looks like a futuristic M16-A4. It is my personal favorite.

But despite all of my biased info, make your own choice! Don't let me keep you from getting what you want to get! I would feel bad if I did. :) If anything, just look at a few video reviews for each gun, and decide for yourself what you like better.

Sorry for the lengthy comment, btw. :/

author

can I use my stryfe. Im gonna add a few more mods.

Overvoltage

Semi auto-->full auto moter replacement & conversion

author

You can use any blaster you want!

author

Alright, if you say it is better than the Hail-Fire, I might go buy that. After toying around with my Retaliator a lot, I have come to a conclusion that it is an epic win. The ranges advertised are without the barrel extension though. The range drops around 20 feet by the extension.

I would ask if the Rough Cut is better or the Retaliator?

author

Retaliator by far, the Rough Cut is cool with the two barrels, but ranges are very inconsistend, as it has a poor air seal. The Retaliator is consistent and a quick reload. You made the right choice.

author

My Retaliator began malfunctioning today... I guess I'm gonna return it and get a Rough Cut, which is the only other available gun.

author

Really? What's wrong with it? Usually those kinds of things happen accidentally, and work themselves out. Give it a chance, and see what happens. Maybe I can help you fix it. Trust me, the 2X4 is not as good as it's cracked up to be.

author

I used your advice and instead of a 2x4, I just got a new Retal. The problem, if I were to describe it, was rather too hard to fix (I'm a modder, but the problem came from shooting). The mechanism refused to cock.

author

Ah, sounds like a locking failure causing the pkunger to rotate and not catch the trigger pin. Happened to my Raider, so I just sawed it into pieces and use it for scrap now. How's the second one working for you?

author

Same thing happened again. I opened it up, but could not fix it... gonna get a different gun this time... or maybe 3rd times a charm. Let us see.

And my raider does not have any problem. I have been using it for about 3 years now and it helped me win atleast 8 nerf wars.

author

Hmm. Ok. Well, good luck man!

author

Ok then! But a bit of a problem, there isn't a place which sells the RapidStrike. So, I guess I will take the Hail-Fire.

author

Oh, well, it's worth the wait.

EpicMinecrafter870 (author)2015-01-20

Y we need whistler darts. I always use elites. I don't have half this stuff but I joined. Am I gonna get kicked out?????

author

This uniform has been upgraded, so I suggest you look more at the other instructable, (the one that got featured). Swords are for melee fighting.

mythbuster8 (author)2014-08-06

hey nerfrock I was wondering what company and possibly model your mask is?

author

Ah, it says 20/20 on the band with a sort of ][ logo shape. Sorry, don't know more. I lost the instructions months ago... It has a built in fan, I bought it from the state park paintball place.

Is it possible to block bullets with a nerf sword?

author

Well it is... But it helps to be a good baseball player... :)

Dr MonkeyMan (author)2013-11-04

author

When i have time. I actually made the dart necklaces and i wore it to Wall-mart and i a person actually walked up to me and asked me if i was in the group.

author

Haha nice! The word is spreading! Glad you completed your Nerfneck.

author

Thanks! Next time when and what?!

How do you use the pop its

author
nerfrocketeer (author)patbking2014-06-03

They're a diversion. Throw them, they hit the ground and POP, hopefully a handful of them will be enough to scare any enemies enough to give you the upper hand in a Nerf war.

What's the difference of the nk3, nk3e, and nk3ae

author
nerfrocketeer (author)patbking2014-05-28

nerfrocketeer (author)patbking2014-05-28

Hi,

There is no such thing as an "NK3," so it's nothing... :/

The NK3E is the same as the NK3AE.

NK3E stands for "NerfrocK' 3rd Elite,"

NK3AE stands for "NerfrocK 3rd Army Elite." Same thing.

How do you make the holsters? I wanna make them.

author

Oh, well since you asked I'd better make an 'Ible soon, but here's the short version:

-Find a box that is almost the same size as your gun. If you can't then cut some cardboard to size.

-Cut the bottom and the top open, and also cut a notch for the trigger finger to reach into.

-Wrap I tape to make it look good

-Add a tape belt loop and hook it to your belt.

Hope this helps for now! I will make an Instructable soon for you though.

Where is this army based?

author

Hello! The NK3AE is based on www.nk3ae.weebly.com.

author
I_StarkGuy (author)2014-02-07

I have not gotten camo clothes but I use a dark gray vest with many pockets and I made my own dart bags, mgazine bags, and holsters out of discarded clothes. I prefer to go lighter with only a Retaliator CS-12 (with different stocks and barrels depending on the war area) a Strongarm and a Jolt.

author
nerfrocketeer (author)I_StarkGuy2014-02-07

Oh, well no prob for now, but at some point if we ever have an Nk3AE meetup you'll need these.

author
I_StarkGuy (author)nerfrocketeer2014-02-07

Which of your items are mandatory?

author
nerfrocketeer (author)I_StarkGuy2014-02-08

Anything having to do with safety (mask, gloves, knee/shoulder pads, comfortable shoes, ect.) is mandatory. These can be homemade to save money. Also, you must have an NK Nerfneck, and, of course, at least one Nerf Gun.

author
I_StarkGuy (author)nerfrocketeer2014-02-08

Oh, easy, I use all those except for the paintball mask. (not available here, I use sunglasses) I'll show you a photo later.
