There is an optimal uniform for every scenario, however with all of the DIY projects in existence the possibilities for customization are endless.

Compiled here are some of the key tips and steps you will need to follow in order to build multiple types of Nerf uniforms for any and all occasions! Feel free to add your own customizations to create your own perfect combat suit!

The Heavy Uniform is worn in large scale and challenging foam dart wars. Soldiers in this uniform are able to carry much more equipment on their person. Able to carry a maximum of 20 different foam implements, this uniform makes any Nerf soldier a truly formidable opponent.

Following is a list of the components of the Heavy Uniform:

-Long-Sleeved shirt with the appropriate camouflage for your area. This shirt should have at least two pockets, allowing the wearer to carry information such as pop-up disks, snappers, and codes.

-Nerf N-Strike or N-Strike Elite tactical vest. This vest should be worn over the camouflage shirt. It should house extra darts, magazines, and blasters, as well as other accessories such as mist makers, flashlights, and lazer pointers. It is recommended that two holders be added to the back to carry foam swords.

-Camouflage long cargo pants with same type of camouflage as the shirt. These pants will allow even more supplies to be carried along, as well as protect the wearer from the environment. Extra blasters, foam dart clusters, and darts should be stored in the pockets of these pants.

-Nerf bandolier kit belt. The Nerf N-Strike or N-Strike Elite bandolier kit can easily be modified into a belt to hold up the cargo pants. It should store extra magazines, darts, and have attached holsters (can be homemade to fit foam blaster). There should be at least two small blasters (Hammershots in the pictures) in the side holsters.

-Other important parts of the Heavy Uniform include the following items. A paintball mask, sunglasses, and/or camouflage hat (matches pants and shirt). Black or camouflage gloves (the ones in the pictures have plastic blades at the fingertips), knee-pads, a watch, and black shoes/boots with long (preferably black or camouflage) socks.

-Extra darts, magazines, blasters, and other implements are always useful when it is possible to add them. Feel free to add things to your liking.

Warnings about this uniform:

-This uniform is extremely warm/hot to wear, and is therefore not recommended for those who tire easily.

-This uniform resembles a S.W.A.T. team uniform and safety precautions should be followed.

-This uniform does not guarantee protection from injury.

-Makes noise when moving.

The Light Uniform is worn in situations requiring less gear. This is a more commonly used uniform, as it only requires a few key pieces. It is much lighter to wear than the Heavy Uniform, and allows greater range of motion at the price of less equipment.

Following is a list of the key elements of the Light Uniform:

-Long-Sleeved shirt with the appropriate camouflage for your area. This shirt should have at least two pockets, allowing the wearer to carry information such as pop-up disks, snappers, and codes.

-Camouflage long cargo pants with same type of camouflage as the shirt. At least one small blaster should be stored in the pocket(s) of these pants.

-A primary Nerf blaster. The primary blaster should be relatively large (equivalent to Alpha Trooper CS-12/18 in size and usability).

-Other important parts of the Heavy Uniform include the following items. A paintball mask, sunglasses, and/or camouflage hat (matches pants and shirt). Black or camouflage gloves (the ones in the pictures have plastic blades at the fingertips), knee-pads, a watch, and black shoes/boots with long (preferably black or camouflage) socks.

-Extra darts, magazines, blasters, and other emplements are always useful when it is possible to add them. Feel free to add things to your liking.

Warnings about this uniform:

-This uniform cannot carry as much equipment as the Heavy Uniform.

-This uniform resembles a S.W.A.T. team uniform and safety precautions should be followed.

-This uniform does not guarantee protection from injury.

The official NK3AE Hot Weather Uniform is designed to keep the wearer cool and comfortable during foam dart wars. It is easier to wear than even the Light Uniform, and is designed for the hot parts of the year and environments such as deserts, hot grasslands, jungles, and many other high-temperature places.

Following are some of the key components of the Warm Weather Uniform:

-Short-sleeved shirt that matches the camouflage on the pants. This should have at least two chest pockets to house a pop-up disk and codes.

-Paintball mask, hat, and/or sunglasses to keep sun, heat, and/or glare out of the wearer's eyes and off the head.
