OPEN MIC NIGHT: what do you hate about a blaster you like

We all have a blaster that we hate for a number of reasons and for many it's the Deploy and Centurion for obvious reasons. But, what about the blasters you like? What do you hate about a blaster that you like?

So it goes like this. When commenting, do it in this format "I really like the *blaster*, but don't like its *thing*". It's easy to think of reasons to hate a bad blaster, but, can you think of a reason to dislike a good one?

I don't want people criticizing others because they like a blaster you don't and keep it clean. I'll go first.

I really like the Pyragon but don't like its drum mag.

Now you go.

  1. I liked the LongStrike, but no amount of modding seems to improve accuracy or range. It's always a hassle, and I wish I almost hadn't bought it. Same with the Stampede; even if I take the batteries out, the batteries die pretty quickly. I'm forced to resort to buying the necessary components for a voltage mod (so the Stampede accommodates AA batteries)

    1. If you're at the end of your rope with the Longstrike, I'd recommend getting the Orange Mod Works Massacre kit for it. There is a noticeable improvement in performance

    2. I've been considering one for a while, but I've been seeing quite a few posts about breakage in the Massacre kit :/

    3. It depends on how you treat it. If you're careful and don't dry-fire, or try to one-hand prime, you should be fine and it should last a good long while. Besides, OMW will gladly send you replacement parts if you something breaks.

    4. My Longstrike Massacre bolt sled broke a while back....in it's defense though, the priming system I had on it wasn't priming the sled evenly I don't think. Other wise it's a good kit, and I believe it's pretty cheap now....

    5. It is; it's 20$ or so. I'm very, very tempted to purchase one, seeing as how it's so cheap, yet I'm still unsure

  2. I really like the Strongarm but I find the handle a little uncomfortable.

  3. I like the alpha trooper but have always hated the pump handle, I modded mine with a rampage pump grip and it is a dream. this is how the alpha trooper should have always been.
    I like the pyragon but hate that the pump grip leaves no comfortable place for your thumb, you stick it through the hole and it just sits there with nothing to grip to.
    I dislike the bolt handles on the LSK/LS/failurion. I would like to see a ambidextrous bolt piece that is in the center similar to real bolt action rifles, having those rods sticking out is really annoying for me.

  4. I really like the rapidstrike, but it's wimpy stock and a huge pain to try and modify.

  5. I love the Rayven, but it's glow clip is crappy.
    I really Like the Centurion's design, but the fact that I have lost 5 darts from cocking it too quickly is annoying.
    I like the Spectre, but the handle is too small.

  6. Will always have love for the Maverick - first Nerf gun etc. etc. . At the time it was a great little gun that performed reasonably well and a bit more if a few extra pennies were spent on the blaster. The performance increase vs. time spent to mod this blaster tapers off quite quickly after the initial penny mod. I think it is safe to say that trying to coax extra performance out of this blaster is futile. In the end I love the Maverick for what it is, a comfortable 6 shooter revolving pistol blaster, but I hate that damn reversed plunger system that it has going on in the internals.

  7. I like the Elite Alpha Trooper but it's range was disappointing for a grey trigger and it should've come with a straight 18 mag so I can gladly call it cs-18

  8. I really like Magnus,but I hate it's small capacity.
