Introduction: Shotgun Nerf Dart

Picture of Shotgun Nerf Dart

The Nerf dart shoots and acts like a shotgun bullet.

I got this idea from N-Striker *and Celloman* from (their) idea of shotgun darts from knex.

I have also another idea I came up w/ from Stefans (from Twisted and other people) that you can use Split Shot Sinkers used for fishing. You still put the tic tac down the about lenght shown in step 4, but instead of filling with tic tacs, put (2) split shot sinkers size BB and then put a size PSS-7 sss in to seal it. Note (1): These darts are heavier that regular darts, and Note (2): I have done some testing on different nerf guns with these sss darts. That I know of, this only works on the (air restrictor and spring modded) longshot, possibly the attachment to the longshot, possibly the n-strike revolver thing, and possibly the Recon (small one). I have tested this also on the Recon CS-6, the (un-modded) longshot, and a couple of REALLY small guns, and those didn't work. If anyone would like to test these darts on other guns, that'd be okay.


Step 1: Things You Need

Here is what you need

1. Nerf darts (duh)
2. Tic Tacs (any kind)
3. Scissors
4. Pliers (maybe)
5. A pin or knex piece

Step 2: Take Apart

Take your nerf dart and cut of the tip of it.

Then, use your fingers (or a pair of pliers) to rip out the little nub out of the center of the dart.

Step 3: The Tic Tacs

Now take your tic tacs and cut the up with your scissors. Its easiest to cut them in half as shown and cut the from there. Make sure you have at least 2 big pieces that can fit snuggly in the nerf dart.

Step 4: The Insertion

Now take one big piece and push it down to the about length. I found it easy to do this with a piece of knex. Then put in smaller pieces. Then, seal it up with the other big piece. OR OR OR OR OR some people have had problems with the tic tac pieces coming out, so you can take the little nub that you took out in step 2 and put it in (very lightly so it is BARELY in) and that usually works better than the big tic tac piece in it. NOTE: put it in so that it is barely in the nerf dart, or it might not come out at all and will get jammed in.

Step 5: Your Done!

rorpen (author)2010-10-06

NatNoBrains (author)rorpen2010-12-30

You can only fit about two in.


seabananers (author)2010-07-21

iv'e never had them long enough but wouldnt the tic tacs spoil?

wlrules (author)2010-03-07

use airsoft bbs

Spycrab (author)2010-02-01

so it shoots tic-tacs?
neat. never would have thought of that :D

cm25ahtrack (author)2010-01-22

haha yes they are. These are what I used:

willada1 (author)2009-12-27

i did this with plastic bbs and it worked great try that instead of tic tacs

Nerfgenius (author)2009-10-24

If you put a little tape on the dart ( to hold it in place), put a CPVC barrel on a Titan AS-V1 and fired this shotgun dart at close range, IT WOULD HURT LIKE CRAZY

Colonel88 (author)2009-08-18

wait so i dont get whether a nerf gun is AIR (compressed because of drawing back the slide) POWERED OR spring POWERED. Please help

~Aeronous~ (author)Colonel882009-09-02

its powered by air and spring you nitwit jk when you cock it back, then it pulls a tube inisde a tube back, and theend of the tube is covered, so when you pull triggger, the springk, pushes the tube forward, blasting air out, nerf mods usually remove the air filters, otherwise it would be 2 powaful.

what he said

Thundertydus (author)2008-07-27

how don't you get it? its got the big hole traveling through it, so the air just blows the shrapnel (btw it works better with airsoft pellets) out of the empty dart and leaves the dart in its place it doesnt work with any guns like recons or longshots

kibbler (author)Thundertydus2008-10-04

When i shoot mine, it also shoots the dart and pretty much explodes when it hits a target.

mr. cool 384 (author)kibbler2009-08-11

thats even beter it may not be a shotgun but u have made a frag grenade launcher XD

Thundertydus (author)kibbler2009-07-21

To get it to work just get a buzzbee gun with a shell and tape the dart to the shells, that way it fires like a shotgun

Thundertydus (author)kibbler2009-02-25

That's Uber Cool

wats-a-username (author)2009-06-24

or u could save ur bullets and by the buzzbee double shot

kibbler (author)2008-10-04

What did tic-tacs do to you?

sharlston (author)kibbler2009-04-30

they hurt a lot!

whiteandnerdy (author)2009-04-28

Mines didn't frekin work!!

meanbean (author)2009-04-04

WAAAYYYY better with airsoft pellets

Knex Guru (author)2009-02-26

Double Shot by BuzzBee ftw.

emuostrich (author)2009-01-10

Do you need a weight or something?

hankypanky (author)2008-11-30

hey man its a good idea but when i used in "combat" it suked, as well did the knex idea. If u want a good bullet, try this: shoot a suction cup bullet at a light bulb whwait for while its on. then wait 4 three minutes. after that, remove it from the bulb and rip off the suction cup. the bullet then becomes more accurtate, shoots further, and it hurts more(if nerf actually hurts at all)

KI4WLG (author)2008-06-04

Shotguns don't use bullets... They use shot shells... :-P Great idea though, sounds like it could use some refining. I don't understand how the crushed tic-tac is supposed to come out of the dart...

jamiespark (author)KI4WLG2008-11-21

yes they do the bullets are lodged in the shell

KI4WLG (author)jamiespark2008-11-21

A shot shell is just that. It's a plastic shell filled with shot pellets. not bullets. The pellets are packed into the shell. Now if you're talking about a slug shell then yes, there is a lead slug that is bullet shaped.

kibbler (author)KI4WLG2008-07-27

I don't either... but it does.

not unless it's a slug, but otherwise you're right.

cm25ahtrack (author)KI4WLG2008-06-07

ok, i made a comment on it about that and on the step that it is in.
