Should nerf guns be modified?

Should Nerf blasters be modified? My opinion is yes because it gives the player an edge in performance during competitive play if rules allow, but the increased velocity even to the limit will not make a serious bruise because of the safety features built into Nerf darts that limit the damage they deal (compressible tip), also the darts are very lightweight, so they will not knock over anything despite traveling at a high velocity. Unless the dart is modified to deal extra damage (which is illeg...

For further definitions of these terms, see here: https://www.sciencelearn.org.nz/resources/14-characteristics-of-living-things First round is acceptanc...

Our respective guns will be graded in certain categories, which include but are not limited to: range, firepower (RoF), versatility, damage, maneuverability, reload time, recoil, accuracy, and any other categories you would like to add. 2.
