      Wouldn't know, don't play. Just makes the game more annoying to me if you can't do it there either.

      I had originally written a comment refuting this, thinking you meant "Rival" as in "Rival Toy Company".

      I now know Rival is the specific model/range of nerf gun displayed int he video.

    Michael shot 30 zombies in the time it took to open three locks. That's 10 per lock. So if each lock is worth 10 zombies then Michael got 2 locks in the first round and 30 zombies in the second round, giving him a score of 50.


    Gavin got 18 Zombies in the first round and 3 locks in the second giving him a score of 48


    Michael: 50

    Gavin: 48


    Michael wins.

    I feel like depending on how much kick the gun has, just keeping a grip on it would be harder then aiming in this scenario.

    that is so funny, i was a zombie in this shoot and they filmed a second round in which Gavin killed every zombie in the room - sucks that they cut that one. Also, in Michael's shown round, Gavin never got the third lock off - they filmed that bit in post cause Michael was dying upside down.

      Cool! Would have liked to see that too. Do you know if they did this with other pairs for FIRST-only episodes?

      tahupierce - they filmed the FIRST only episode earlier in the day, each labrat was hung for two turns each. I imagine again they will only show the best of the two for each one; Gav really struggled with the locks, his was the last shot and we tried to reshoot it three times before they gave up and just filmed him undoing the lock. 


      Ikuna - ikr? it was the first round too, Blaine said we have to make it a bit harder for them after that, which is why they probably chose his second take; while it was cool for him to have killed all the zombies, Michael's one made for a way more interesting video, i reckon!

    For some reason Gav looks really good upside down in the thumbnail, and I can't figure out why exactly. But I'm pretty sure it has something to do with gravity and his hair. And the nice lighting. And the fact that it's Gav.

      Both the rifle and El Diablo are single shot until you upgrade them. The bow is also single shot when you think about it.

      i agree its not like they are playing COD zombies and the first gun is an old Springfield where you have to reload after every shot. if im not mistaken the toy gun in the office is full auto if not semi auto.

      @rtqueenee considering they're using a single shot nerf gun that takes a while to reload and cock i think it's a pretty decent equilizer
