    Private Backyard Nerf War #1 - (HvZ) Filmed by littlebro05, phuonguyen and SnowDragon

    Post  littlebro05 on Mon Dec 27, 2010 9:54 am

    Let me start by saying that I only edited and uploaded this videos a week ago. This was a war from about a month and a week ago. I couldn't be bothered to edit the video until now because there were three cameras rolling at the same time and I could not be bothered going through them all... until now. Since I was on a roll for editing videos on our previous war from a week ago, I decided I may as well do this one as well.

    Credits:

    Cameraman #1 - phuonguyen
    First Person View Cameraman - SnowDragon (was the survivor)
    Cameraman #2 - littlebro05

    We had about 16 people rock up to this Nerf War. Most guns that were modded were just AR removal with the exception of some who had took it to the next level... phuonguyen... hahah. Anywho the video is below...

    This HvZ mini-game is based on Left4Dead and Resident Evil 3. The video will walk you through the journey our survivors went through until the very end and also explain some of the concepts seen in the video through subtitles displayed



    Thanks to the person who invited me to this war. Very much appreciated.

    You going to mention that it is at MY HOUSE maybe?

    Also might take this time to flaunt out my video (for those who have not seen it yet):


    As for the rules to the zombie war, needs a bit more tweaking but does create a very fun and immersive, yet quite scary game mode.

    Dig the video Joey.. what camera where you using?

    when filming 1st person camera mount > weapon mount personally - often your weapon can be pointed away from the action, such as when sprinting, however if it is head/helmet mounted then you'll always capture the action

    I'm pretty sure he was using a Go Pro. I'll him answer that though.

    The first film we have ghetto digital cameras. But perhaps you're not interested in the bazillion angles we got lol.

    Yep, was using a Go-pro HD. My company has picked up a couple more so I will have to get my hands on them. I created a custom rail mount (by butchering a recon site) to attach it to most nerf guns. Either way it is the best small sized camera in terms of both visual and audio quality and general performance.

    I also agree, 1st person view looks a lot cooler and better. Granted a gun cam will catch things like 'blind fire' and the such.

    The later shots were all taken by standard 720p camcorders. I think a canon hf200 and some sony camera that isn't as good.

    Videos aside I do like using the house over a park as it provides a great cover area, while allowing for some real flanking and tactics. Unfortunately the offset of this is bottlenecking and stalemates. Fortunately with good team balance and cars in the back yard for further cover we have a good setup going. Most of the people at these two wars are friends of mine and are not on the forums. I find once I get over 20 people it gets a bit crowded so i like to keep numbers just right. For that reason most people are on stock weapons, but with this much cover the modded weapons don't help you as much as they might in an open field. Phoungs modded stampede though is something to fear O.o

    Haha. Like you said Joey - in an indoor war ROF is usually more important than range. However, in phuonguyen's case he's got range and ROF.

    Thank you, Thank you. *takes a bow*

    It's simple to get the range and ROF.

    Increase the voltage to a safe amount, reinforce everything and add a couple of springs.

    Oh BTW the Stampede I used at that war is know as my 'weaker' stampede... just so you know... my other one packs 3 springs.

    I've been checking out venues in the area, and I reckon I'm going to start a HvZ group here in Tassie. Less blaster / dart requirements, pretty fun, easy to pick up, etcetera. Looks like you guys had a really good time, well done!

    If you want a good game. You're going to have to make the conscious effort of getting people together within your city. Sitting around won't do anything lol.

    We already had that system, but it got abused because people wanted to 'post more' and some people were trolls. What do you expect from forums filled with 12-15YOs.

    @GeneralPotatoes. I'm sure there are plenty of places to Nerf. You're just making up excuses. Go and TRY IT. Even if you're first war only has four people! Keep on making wars. Collect names of people come to wars. Etc Etc.

    Google Maps "parks near Mackay" found 291 results. Seriously, "There's no were to have one"? Do a little research.

    @thestick You're completely right.

    @GeneralPotatoes if you want to have wars such as this. The only way you can do it is to actually get off your backside and do something about it. That's what us people in Brisbane did. We didn't complain that "Oh, Melbourne and Adelaide has such a better community than us people in Brisbane". We actually did SOMETHING about it. Look where it took us, now us Brisbanites can argue that we have a community comparable or even BETTER than theirs.

    Not to mention my war wasn't even in a park, it was in my own backyard. I am sure you, or someone you know has a big place. If it is laid out right the house provides great cover and tactics.
