MOD GUIDE: Rival Nemesis

MOD GUIDE: Rival Nemesis

The Rival Nemesis is an extremely popular blaster and an equally popular modding choice.  This mod shows you how to give your Nemesis some extra punch with a 3s LiPO Battery and includes a full wiring diagram as well as a parts list.


There are currently no third party flywheels or motors available for the Nemesis, but we are hoping this may change in the near future! 
The nemesis is pretty straight forward, so that helps a lot. Be careful with the screws, and go slowly. You'll want to make sure you have the proper srewdriver or else you will more than likely strip the screws and be cranky. A few of the screws are a pain to open, so watch those large screws.  



1x - 3s LiPO Battery (for less power you can also do a 2s Battery)
1x - Battery Charger
1x -LiPO Voltage Alarm (For safe LiPo handling)
1x - LiPO Safety Bag
1x - XT-60 Connectors (1Pair)
1x - Firing Switch Plate
1x - Rev Trigger Mounting Plate
2x - Option 1: 21A Omron Microswitch w/ Lever  (1st recommendation)
       Option 2: 21A (Clone) Microswitch w/ Lever  (More Affordable)
1x - Thumbscrew (Optional)
1x - 16 AWG Wire
1x - Super Glue (If using 3d Switch Plates - Hot glue can also work in a pinch)
1x - Epoxy Putty (Required if you don't use the OOD switch plates to build up switch base)
As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. - Luke Goodman

This was the first dart blaster I modified. Was pretty intimidated at first. But it turned out to be pretty simple. The only issue it had was over hopping the balls, but that has since been corrected. One of my favorite blasters. Thx to Out of Darts, and a couple YouTubers, I modify every blaster I get.

The Fortnite SCAR (a little more modding than I thought it’d be), the Nerf Rival MXX-1200 (actually the hardest one), and today the Dart Zone Pro Mk 3 (absolute favorite).

I guess that’s the scariest part… once you start, you can’t stop modding lol. So for anyone wondering if they should… just do your research and start learning of the insides work. Tear one apart slowly, taking pics at each stage to help you put it back together, and find clearly explained YouTube videos to follow each step of the way. You’ll be fine!!


I’m scared if I buy this kit, I won’t be able to modify my nemesis properly and successfully. Is there anyway I could send my nemesis over to be modified and pay for all charges. I am very desperate please.
