How it Works

If you’re joining the Brawl, read it all…

What’s a Blaster Brawl?
Think Paintball – but instead of hard balls of paint, it’s balls of foam. Now, add in combat barriers and strategic, high intensity game modes you’ve never played before!

Ok, what do I do now?

    1. First, you need a weapon. Go straight to your local Walmart or Toys R Us and get one.
    2. Next, get yourself some safety glasses. Home Depot, Wal-Nut, Canadian Tire, etc.
    3. Do the online waiver, once per lifetime.
    4. See the calendar, RSVP to a game and show up!

What’s it like?

Destroying bases, defusing rockets, taking cover behind HUGE barriers, navigating walls, eliminating enemies and securing objectives, how much more extreme could this Nerf Brawl get?

It’s not a one man army. It’s not a one girl army either. Grab your friends and work as a team to win the war.   Will you hide? Attack? Or cover my back? With so many strategies to use, so many game modes, and so many barriers to attack from, the action is truly endless.

So, do we cancel if it rains? NO! The most intense, war-like battles ONLY happen in the rain, and ONLY in Vancouver.

How about if it’s hot? If it is we might have a short, mid-game water fight to cool off!

Games happen outside, all over Vancouver and Burnaby.

💰Be prepared for possible Shoot ‘n’ Loot game modes – ie. people can nab your blaster if you get shot down. So always bring an extra blaster which you’re okay with someone else using if you “die”.


At the Teen/Adult Brawls, players are in their teens or twenties. Some of them will drag their dads into the brawl (but often it’s the other way round).

At the kids/family brawls, min is 7y, and parents jump in too! Older siblings can join their younger siblings as well. We’ll even have entire families show up.

We got darts, balls, and stefans.

All ammo is squishy, not hard, doesn’t hurt.

See calendar page for ammo types avail. for the specific date.

The game modes we construct are actually pretty intense, comparable to a soccer match. You will sweat. A lot. But it’s a ton of fun, unlike getting your exercise from a boring treadmill. But don’t worry if you think you’re not in shape, after showing up consistently you’ll be in really good shape in no time. But seriously, don’t show up expecting just some walking and shooting. 

Required items – Blaster & safety glasses.

Teen & Up brawls – blaster must be RIVAL. ie. shoots rival balls.

Bringing multiple guns is recommended. They jam.

We might play Shoot & Loot game modes: These game modes will involve others nabbing your blaster if you get shot. Be prepared for this case.

You can bring all other sorts of battle gear. For example, I’ve seen people bring big homemade shields made from plastic garbage bin cuts, cafeteria trays, and cardboard boxes. I’ve seen people bring tac vests to hold mags for fast reloads. I myself bring a battle belt with holsters, mag holders  and a dump pouch for ammo.

Or, at the very least, have pockets to stuff ammo in.

Just shop glasses. Nothing fancy.  Whatever it is, make sure it stays on your eyes while running, spinning and jumping, and that it is comfortable to wear the whole time because you should never EVER take them off.

Rival masks (or any kind of mask) are not recommended due to fogging.  It will fog, and you will take it off which is bad.

Also due to fogging, full seal goggles are NOT recommended.

If you wish to Nerf Brawl wearing prescription glasses buy some side shields for them. Example here.  Other options – prescription goggles, and goggles to fit over glasses.

Any eye protection not protecting the side of the eye is not allowed. 

NO. They do not protect the side of your eye, plus they may fall off your face while running and spinning.

  • Get goggles that fit over.
  • Get prescription goggles/safety glasses
  • Get side shields that fit on your glasses plus some string that holds it on your face if it is susceptible to falling off, eg  here

Any eye protection not protecting the side of the eye is not allowed. 

NO. It doesn’t hurt. The stuff is foam. If you wear body armor everyone is gonna call you a cheater, because you won’t feel hits.

Generally no melee weapons.  Too easy. Some games we may provide swords.

Yes! Bring your shields.  Anything that is rigid when deployed, is a shield.  Wearing a picnic cloth over yourself is not a shield.  
You can hold or mount shields to your arms.  Or back.

We encourage engineering your blasters. And home-mades. Just don’t paint it all black and real like.

We all play, we all make the mess, so we all clean it up, and stay until it’s done. Team cleanup is always the last 10-20min of the brawl, depending on how much mess there is.

Price is on the events page. Pay cash or card, or online.
