Ever since Nerf introduced its Rival line of blasters that fire spherical foam balls instead of traditional darts, Nerf fans and Nerf itself have been engaged in something of an arms race. The race to build the ultimate bottomless blaster might just have ended though because it would be hard to top Adam Savage's latest creation.
Savage builds on what Nerf started with its Nemesis MXVII-10K blaster, which featured a gravity-fed hopper capable of holding some 100 rounds and firing for over 20 seconds at a stretch. Nerf upped the ante to 200 rounds withits follow up Prometheus MXVIII-20K, but modders had already had it outpaced with the likes of a 1,000+ round proton pack of a reservoir, facilitating a truly absurd two minutes of full-auto fire. Savage's mode, , takes from both sides, sticking to the gravity-fed hopper of the MXVII-10K, but taking it to its logical extreme and building a hopper that's comically large.
There might be room to get even more ridiculous from here, but as the size of Savage's hopper indicates, simply pushing the limits on size does eventually put you at a point of diminishing returns. But where there's a will, there's a way. Best of luck to all the engineers doubtlessly at work trying to figure out how to push the envelope to 2,000.
