SyFy Defiance Infector pistol Nerf mod and storage case

SyFy Defiance Infector pistol Nerf mod and storage case

The upcoming SyFy Channel series “Defiance” is one I’ve been looking forward to since it was first announced back in 2011. I’m a huge SciFi fan and it is always good when SyFy actually pickup shows in the genre. This series is tied into the “Defiance” MMO video game by Trion Worlds and that is where we have found inspiration from for this Nerf mod.

This is a Nerf Firestrike pistol modded after the style of the awesome looking Infector pistol from the game. I’m not sure if this gun will appear in the Defiance TV series, but keep your eyes open here and on my Nerfenstein Facebook page for other “Defiance” mods / props (I’m working on a scratch built Defiance prop at the moment as it happens). The designers have done such a great job on the weapons and overall look of this series I can’t help but be excited, then there’s the cast! “Defiance” premieres Monday, April 15, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/8:00 p.m. Central in the US.

Okay let’s look at the mod…

SyFy series game Defiance Nerf Firestrike mod - Defiance Infector pistol

Special delivery for Amanda Rosewater – Defiance. Infector pistol, suppressor and spare battery in storage case.

Went with a cel-shaded look to match the video game graphics. I also added a cool carry case because I was devastated the awesome Defiance Ultimate Edition of the game wasn’t available in Australia… DAMMIT! I was so excited when I saw coverage of it, but it appears to have been US only.. gutted! Anyway I made my own case based off the case in that edition and I added a ‘battery’ for the Infector Pistol. Followers of my work will spot this is the Nerf Firestrike mod I did a few weeks ago to show how to make cheap / easy screw on barrel accessories. This is the smallest suppressor from that mod set. You can see how that was done in the DIY Simple Nerf Barrel Extension tutorial post.

Defiance Infector pistol Nerf Firestrike modification and ingame image

The ingame image this Nerf mod is based on. The Infector pistol from SyFy series / game Defiance. It causes alien bugs to grow on the target before bursting out and killing the target… Eww!

Made some decals in photoshop based on some of the ones on the Collectors edition of the game and I made one of the Von Bach Industries logo and a delivery label featuring Julie Benz’ characters name (Amanda Rosewater). Also added a distressed tape all the way around the metal box. Foam inserts with the areas cut out for the pistol, Spare battery (mdf) and suppressor to set it off.

So there we have it, my first Defiance weapon and homage to a show I am really looking forward to! Jamie Murray and Julie Benz, how can this show fail!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this Defiance Infector pistol Nerf mod.. till next time good people… Nerfenstein out!

NOTE: For those who like bigger pictures, I’ll do that on Facebook.

  1. I have not hear about Defiance before and looked at trailer and is looking very good. I do not know the game, but this is very good sciiencefiction blaster.
    velmi dobrĂ½

    • Glad to get the word out there!

  2. I live in the U.S.A., is the Defiance Ultimate Edition thats only released here compatable with any systems you have in Australia? If it would work on your systems could it be bought here and sent there? Let me know if we could work it out.

    • I’d just buy the game here, it was really all the extras I was after. Sadly it appears to have been exclusive to Gamestop pre-order so I couldn’t even get it on Amazon.

  3. I was not a gamer but became intrigued when a relative told me his employment was a key role in the developing of Defiance at Trion (he is not the bragging kind, he is modest but this tv show — mmo game tie together will also be history making). When he started with it there were only four of them and it was five years ago —- now they have hundreds working on it?! — this is no shoddy thrown together game or syfy show idea! He had spent several years in Norway learning to develop his craft. I am amazed by the released game and excited to watch as it becomes even more incredible.

    • Hey Good Lady,
      I’m excited too, I will be buying the game (the only reason I haven’t is I have a few recent releases I haven’t yet finished so buying another one atm seems pointless). I am really looking forward to the TV show also. It is a really interesting concept that’s for sure and I love the overall look of everything I’ve seen so far đŸ™‚
