If the blue Longshot WAS better than the yellow, there really wasn't a whole lot in it. Against our other friend's red Longshot? Also no real difference. I could almost attribute the blue one being better mainly because it was brand new out of the box, vs the other two which had obviously been played with somewhat but we're talking less than a metre, and if you'd emptied 3-4 clips from each of them into a carpark you probably wouldn't be able to tell which darts came from which blaster.
Now, this rumour has existed for long enough to influence many Nerfers- a few months ago it was 'Longshot rules supreme!' and now I'm starting to see more "..but only if it's blue!" No doubt there are those of you out there who'll swear black and blue (hehe) that the blue one DOES perform better, but what I'm interested in is genuine evidence to support this. Since I'm not a modder myself, I haven't cracked them both open, but i'm going to guess it looks pretty similar inside. Soo... what makes the blue one better, or is it just a matter of personal experience?
