MOD GUIDE: Nerf MEGA Centurion

Centurion... oh you. Your the blaster we love to hate.

OK so, it's been established that the Centurion is poo. But, if you've bought one already, you can make it less poo.

For this mod guide, the barrel was already attached to the blaster. If you plan on modding the Centurion, DON'T ATTACH THE BARREL! It will make taking the blaster apart 100 times for difficult

Lets start with the screws, there are about thirty! I counted 24 in the main blaster and 6 in the barrel.

Firstly, lets look at the barrel. There are about 6 screws that need to be undone. Also, the strap attachment points in the barrel extension are glued together (anti-modding ploy employed by Hasbro). Using a large flat head screwdriver, I twisted the screwdriver, gently prying the two pieces apart. Then the barrel opened up.


On the blaster end of the barrel, there is a cap held down by two screws, take them out. There are two locks in here (one left and one right). The left lock will be easy to remove and the right one will require some effort but is not impossible. Once they're out, put the barrel back together.


Next we move onto the barrel locks in the blaster itself. They are located just in front of the magwell. The first lock to remove is the one that prevents you from loading a clip if the barrel is not attached. It's on a pivot point in the front wall of the mag well itself. I used pin-nose pliers to remove it and the spring. The spring was a pain to remove, I brute forced it out, there is a metal pin in the pivot, so don't be afraid of breaking the post.

Now, there is a screw holding in the barrel lock, just take it out and the lock will follow. There is one in each side of the blaster.

Now it's time to take out the plunger tube. It requires some wiggling before it'll come out, but it shouldn't take too long.





There are three screws in the AR housing, take them out then remove the AR.


Now reassemble the AR housing.

On the AR housing there is a peg pointing upwards, cut it off, this is what stops the jam door from opening when the blaster is cocked.

And that's about it really, because of the sealed plunger tube, there isn't much else we can do without buying/making internals for it. So all that's left to do is put the plunger back together. But, make sure the priming bolts are aligned before you screw the blaster back together.

PS: I did this write up 3 days after taking the Centurion apart and was so bummed at the plunger tube, I haven't yet put it back together yet.

  2. I've done mod to my centurion that closed up the vent holes in the side of the plunger, is that good or bad?
    Their only closed up with duct tape so I can take them off if I need to
