How to give your Nerf gun a Camouflage paint job


nerf gun camoflageRegardless of whether you are a sniper or not, stealth is essential for surviving and winning Nerf wars. The problem with all Nerf gun models however, is that in order to not be like the more realistic toy guns for kids that parents hate, they are painted in really bright orange, yellow and green colours.This means that even you wear camouflage clothing or clothes that match the colour of your environment, your brightly colored blaster will give you away. This is why real guns are always black!

In order to make your favorite Nerf gun harder to spot and thus become stealthier in the battlefield, you can camouflage it. The best way to do that, is to paint it with a camouflage pattern! Here’s hot to do that!

1.Go to your local hardware store and get a can of primer (the primer will help the paint adhere on your Nerf gun) and two different colours of flat and quick drying spray paint. You can choose black and grey or light grey and dark grey for urban camo patterns or olive green and brown or dark yellow for forest camo patterns.

2.Carefully disassemble your Nerf gun. This is to prevent the paint from getting into the mechanisms or the inside of the barrel. Both of those things will severely affect the gun’s performance.

3.Once the gun is disassembled, place tape over any parts on the outside of its casing that you don’t wish to pain over. Warning: for safety reasons, you should leave the end of the barrel and the trigger in their original colors. This will keep people, and especially law enforcement agents, from mistaking your blaster for a real firearm. Trust me, you don’t want that to happen since it can be EXTREMELY dangerous.

4.Apply the primer on the outside of the casing and leave it to dry.

5.Once the primer has dried, take one of the colors you have selected and spray paint the entire outside of the casing. Wait for the pain to dry.

6.While you are waiting for the paint to dry, look around for some tree leaves that are in good condition. If there are no trees and leaves nearby, you can just cut out some leaf shapes from a piece of paper.

7.Place the leaf on the painted Casing of your Nerf gun and use the second colour to paint around it. Use small bursts of the spray paint for better results. Repeat this process until the entire casing is covered by leaf patterns. The patterns don’t have to have the EXACT shape of the leaf.

8.Wait for the paint to dry.

9.Once the paint has dried, put your gun back together and fire it to make sure that everything is in its right place.

10.Congratulations, your favorite Nerf gun is now camouflaged!
