What is your favorite primary weapon to use in a knex war? Answered

I don't care if it is a sniper, crossbow, shotgun, assault rifle, or whatever... If you also go onto knexinnovation.net feel free to use examples from there.

tr 18 - its lightweight, powerfull and reliable.

 duh thats kinda the point..... did you click my link ?

 Listen up and listen good, The best possible weapon to use in a war, is going to need a mag and good range. Now all other things like handle, and strength of the gun, comfort and etc are also important but they are not the first thing to look at when deciding on a weapon. The other things i mentioned are the small deciding factors that help you choose the perfect gun for you.

 example: should i choose gun a, b, c, or d: 

a: 35 ft range, has mag, sturdy, uncomfortable
b: 100 ft range, no mag, sturdy, comfy
c: 65 ft range, mag, weak build, comfy
d: 65 ft range, mag, sturdy, uncomfortable

well lets do what i said above:
first we look at the major things which are mag, and range. So we can knock out gun b because it has no mag. Then we can knock out gun a because it can only shoot 35 ft. Then we have a tie between c and d.

heres where you make your decision. Personally i would choose gun d because being sturdy means more in a war for me than comfort. Now for you it could be different.

A great gun will have the major things like mag and good range, along with a comfy handle, sturdy build, lightweight, good piece count, easy build, easy loading, accuracy and more. BUT........

On on mag fed guns there is one big problem: 
You have to pull the ram to fire 1 shot.

What if there was a gun where you could pull the ram once, and the fire 1 shot, THEN fire another shot (without pulling the ram again?What if that gun was mag fed? What if it was double mag fed? Had dual true triggers? Super comfy? What if it was also sturdy? What if you could fire it in 2 ways?( like pull the ram once and fire 2 shots separately, then pull back the ram again and fire out 2 shots at the same time, its your choice) What if it had good range? and shot oodamo? 

Well i know of such a magnificent gun:

check it out. hope that helped

And what if it was just a smaller version of this?

BR8 or ZKAR v2 or AR-4 v3.

J5 Barricade Shotgun

Lol Its only good, because it provides spread, I killed a whole group ofpeople and I stuttered saying hit 9 times

LOL. But really, it only has like a 20 ft. range.

gumdrops Best gun ever!!

The OSNJCKMAT is an excellent knex gun too, very good in all kinds of tasks. Too bad the ergonomics suck (lame handle, no stock, pump could be better) and that there are some more recent and less specialized knex guns that are a little better.

Well, it's pretty good, but it has a HORRIBLE range. Like 12 feet for me.

Weird... My one reaches 50 or something.

Did you measure? Also, how many of what type of bands were on it?

I didn't measure, I estimated the range. I put on 1 of those fat rubber bands.

What would be your weapon?

Never mind, I made a BR18... Make one! NOW!!! Pwetty pwease?

Nah, I'll be making a Knexsayer soon. The knexsayer can use the fin stabelized rounds too, making it much better then the BR-18. But the fins were still KillerK's idea. Hey, you know what would be cool? Knexsayer combined with railbow PWNAGE!

Wait, did you just say "The k'nexsayer is better then the TR-18?" If so, let me tell you this.

The TR-18 holds 18 rounds. The K'nexsayer holds 8.
The K'nexsayer uses 300 - some green connectors. The TR-18 uses merely 50.
Sow the can the K'nexsayer use finned rods, but the TR-18 can't? Could you please tell me how that's so. If not, I will bomb you with facts about how much better the TR-18 is then the K'nexsayer. :-D

1: Relax lad, take it easy. I changed my opinion more then 1 month ago. The BR is better, but with a few mods the Ksayer is better. 2: The Knexsayer looks much cooler, and with a few mods (see dj radio's comment) the knexsayer can support just as many rounds. 3: The piece count doesn't matter, it's prestaions and coolness that matter. 4: I stated that the ksayer could support the RR ammo, but i didn't said the BR can't. 5: Both get equal range (according to most people) so on prestations they are draw. But the knexsayer has a pump and the barrel rotation system and nice looks so that is why I think the Ksayer is better overall. In a knex war I would go with the BR.

Totally. Except I'm gonna have to disagree on your knexsayer decision. The knexsayer has only 8 shots, is much more complex and therefore more likely to break, uses a TON of pieces, like 3 times what a BR18 takes, and finally: the turret's bullet locks are farther back from the front, which means that the fins on the rods would have to be farther forward and therefore less accurate/ stable.

I agree that having pump-action is convenient, but other than that (which could actually be a disadvantage if the pump guide broke) the BR18 is a more logical choice in my opinion. =) =) =)

pumps are harder to use also.

Not really, in theory bolts would be harder to use, cause' you have to move your hand from the grip to pull the pin back and then you have to move your hand back on the grip again before you can fire it.

In what way? Harder to cock?

Yeah, maybe, but still I go for the knexsayer.

Another late reply, but I just made the Knexsayer and found that it has about 1/2 the range of the BR18 at best. And yes, I did make it right.

I know, but the reason why I like the knexsayer is that it is just 10x as much fun! And in the end, isn't that where it's all about?

Yeah... Except for if you get shot in the eye with a BR18 because you were trying to fix your broken Knexsayer in the middle of a war.

(That was sarcasm)


Lol, it's not really suited for a knex war after all. (maybe if it could just hold a little more bullets...)

i did, my main weapon combination is a BR-(Number) and an oodassault pistol, i also use a compact slingshot gun by Knex-Pls and the imperial shotgun by Ownedintheface. my main weapon is a BR-(Number.)

Sounds good, except for the "imperial shotgun"...

Well... It might work better with a longer barrel, but silver connectors are the exact same thing as yellows. Also, the ammo does NOT explode on impact... Unless you shoot it at a solid brick wall. It even says:

"a strong knex shotgun that shoots SOLID BLOCK ammo."

yes it does, a moon shoes band delivers INSANE power to the little projectile. also silver connectors have a clipped tab on the front and the 3D clipping area provides a good place to lock the band to the ammo. and we have a lot of rocks and wood pilings driven into our yard so they are good things to shoot. i actually think his is the most powerful TRUE grenade launcher on this site.

Well, it may break apart upon impact, but that's a good way to waste yellow connectors.

no, i have a surplus of silver/purple 3D connectors so i am not worried.

Well... I believe that when it comes to knex, you can never have enough.

There are no TRUE knex grenade launchers on this site. True knex grenades would use explosives :-P

actually, an open locking portion near the trigger allows most any ammo to be used.

Yes, but it doesn't allow 40mm grenades :-)

use moldable plasic explosives, mold them into cubes. or widen the barrel.

TR18 W/ Slide.

Yeah, that sounds good. Any secondaries? RPGs? Snipers?

knex artillery's RPG and a spiff or 2, a sipriani rifle v1 or 2.

Is there a special reason for you to choose the RPG?
