1. Nerf N-Strike Mega Mega Mastodon – Longest Range

Nerf N-Strike Mega Mega Mastodon review

This blaster is perfect for experiencing the energy, attitude and excitement usually associated with the Nerf brand. With its amazing power and size, Nerf N-Strike Mega Mega Mastodon is a massive blaster which is the perfect toy for taking command of any battlefield.

The first ever Nerf Mega blaster to feature motorized firing, this gun is capable of rapid firing Mega Whistler darts at speeds that leave them screaming through the air with the fury of a charging beast. With its intimidating size, this Nerf blaster is going to have your opponents scattering in the battlefield.

However, the N-strike Mega Mega Mastodon is not only about intimidating your opponents with size. It features a 24 dart rotating drum which allows you to load up to two dozen Mega Whistler darts into the gun all at once, meaning you don’t have to waste time reloading your gun while your opponents creep up on you. Instead, just load up your massive Nerf machine gun, power up the motor by holding down the acceleration button and then pull the trigger to unleash the raw power of the Mega Mastodon, spraying your opponents with a fusillade of Mega Whistler darts.

What’s more, this gun can shoot the Nerf darts for a distance of up to 30 meters (100 feet), giving you the advantage of distance.
The Mega Mastodon is big and heavy, but you don’t have to worry because it has a shoulder strap that allows you to easily carry it into the battlefield and trample over your opponents.

With its rapid-fire functionality, you can fire the two dozen Mega Whistler darts in well under twenty seconds. Clearly, the Mega Mastodon is not messing around, and it proves very difficult for someone to rush you when you have this blaster. With this function you can let out a burst of very effective suppressive fire. Apart from the amazing range, this gun also has excellent accuracy, which means it can also be used as a single shot rifle.

The 24 dart drum rotates freely, making reloading easy and quick. Though it’s very unlikely for this gun to jam, it has a compartment that allows you access to remove stuck darts. The jamming might occur when a dart gets stuck between the barrel and the revolving drum. To avoid jamming, ensure that the darts are well inserted. All in all, the N-strike Mega Mega Mastodon is an amazing gun that is worth every penny.

Most reviewers agree this is the best nerf gun 2017

 

ProsCons
Easy to assemble Big and heavy for small kids
Cool soundeffects Using allot of batteries
Long range Using anoter type of nerf-ammo

 

2. Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyper Fire Blaster – 5 Darts Per Second!

 

Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyper Fire Blaster review

 

Blast you way to victory by taking advantage of the speed of the Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyper Fire Blaster. Also fully motorized, it fires up to 5 darts per second when using fresh batteries, making it the fastest firing Nerf gun ever.

This allow you to bring down your opponents as you rain down a barrage of darts onto your target. You only need to load up, hold down the acceleration button then pull the trigger to start your assault.

This gun comes with a 25 dart drum, allowing you enough firepower to keep your assault going. Apart from the speed, this blaster also has range on its side, capable of firing Elite darts up to a distance of 27 meters (90 feet). With the advantages of speed and rage on your side, this is definitely a weapon you need in your Nerf arsenal.

While its weight is slightly noticeable, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyper Fire Blaster is relatively lightweight in comparison to other blasters. You can easily carry and run around with this gun over a long period of time, especially if you keep its stock supported against your shoulder. The Hype fire can use any standard-sized Nerf magazines or drum-fed blasters.

This blaster should be comfortable for kids to hold and carry around since the thumb hole handle grip is quite small. However, a larger-handed adult might find it a bit awkward and uncomfortable. The acceleration trigger on the Hyper Fire is located fairly close to the trigger that pops the magazine. This might be an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on how you usually manage your blaster. If not well versed with it, you might accidentally release you magazine.

All in all, it is a good Nerf gun based on its compact size and the rotating drum magazine. It feels good in the hands and once you install the batteries (it used 4D batteries), it feels pretty well balanced. It’s recommendable to get rechargeable batteries for your Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyper Fire Blaster, since the speed and range of this blaster drops noticeably over time as the battery voltage decreases.

The new design of the Hyper-Fire is cool, giving the gun a look that’s similar to that or fantasy video game weapons as well as real life firearms. It’s also capable of taking some rough handling, working just fine even after being thrown around a bit.

ProsCons
High firerate Reload time
Good quality Some design flaws

3. Nerf N-Strike Elite Rhino-Fire Blaster – 2×25 Darts Magazine!

 

Nerf N-Strike Elite Rhino-Fire Blaster review

 

What better blaster to dominate a Nerf battlefield than the double-barreled Nerf N-Strike Elite Rhino-Fire Blaster? This monster blaster allows you to release a fusillade of Elite darts, firing at targets up to a distance of 27 meters. The Rhino-Fire is a motorized blaster, giving you control over the gun’s rate of fire.

Being double barreled, it has two dart drums as well, each capable of holding up to 25 darts. When you buy the Rhino-Fire, you get 50 Elite darts. When shooting from a secure location, you can make use of the tripod stand to steady your shots and detach it when you need to move.

With this monster Nerf machine gun, you will become your competition’s worst nightmare, the ultimate soldier commanding all the respect in the Nerf battlefields. With its two dart drums, the Rhino-Fire has among the largest capacities amongst most Nerf guns available.

With its ultimate and realistic styling, this blaster resembles a ground-to-air anti-aircraft machine gun, giving you the look and feel of the ultimate trooper. Though it is meant to be mounted on a tripod, this fully automatic gun is rather light-weight and easy to carry around. This large funky cannon gives you the firepower needed to mow down anyone who attempts to stand in your way.

One of the most impressive features of the Rhino-Fire lies in its oscillating barrels, which allow the shooter to move around the gun around searching for targets in similar fashion to a deck mounted gun. The gun also has a comfortable, ergonomically designed handle, giving it the feel of a modern weapon. Without using the tripod, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Rhino-Fire Blaster requires two handed use when fully loaded.

The tripod has an anti-slippery plastic, making the Rhino-Fire a lot more stable. The tripod is designed to allow for 360 degrees of rotation and a considerable amount of top to bottom movement, enabling you to train your sights on your targets, wherever they are. The Rhino-Fire has a rate of fire of about 2.8 rounds per second, maxing out the 50 darts in about 18 seconds, which is not really bad. The intimidation factor provided by its sheer size is incomparable to that of any other Nerf gun on the market. It is eye catching and more menacing than anything your opponents might flaunt. Leaving you the undisputed king of the Nerf battlefields.

ProsCons
Big ammo clip Jams if the dart is defect
Battery friendly Inaccurate aim

 

4. Nerf N-Strike Elite Rough Cut 2X4 Blaster – Pump Action Shotgun

 

Nerf N-Strike Elite Rough Cut 2X4 Blaster review

 

This is another double-barreled blaster with which you can dominate battlefields. The Rough Cut 2X4 allows you to blast your way through enemy lines by taking advantage of the ability to fire 2 Elite darts simultaneously, with a range of up to 75 feet. It also features pump-action design, which allows you to pump when you want to let loose a steady double stream of Nerf darts. Capable of holding up to 8 Elite darts, the Rough Cut has a relatively low capacity compared to the previous Nerf guns, but don’t let that fool you.

If you want to improve your battlefront capabilities, the Rough Cut features a tactical rail, allowing you to beef it up with any of the Tactical Rail accessories.
This Nerf blaster is all about going through your mission with two times the firepower. However, I would advise you to be careful with the slam-fire and use it only in situations that call for that massive firepower, since using this feature means you will have to reload your gun after four shots.

One of the first things you notice immediately after unpacking the Rough Cut 2X4 is its light weight and its ergonomically designed handle. It ranks among the most comfortable blasters to operate. It comes with a staged trigger, which means you can fire either 2 darts simultaneously or one dart at a time, depending on your preferences.

The Rough Cut has 8 barrels, with intelligent air restrictors that channel air from the plunger, directing it to the next barrel in the in firing sequence. The plastic from which the Rough Cut is made feels strong and of high quality, with a handle that feels comfortable for a mature aged Nerf fan. Going by its form factor, the Rough Cut is a perfect replacement for the older version N-Strike barrel Break IX-2.

Loading up the Rough Cut is quite a breeze. Instead of clips, you simply need to slide the darts into the dart holes. The darts are a tight fit for the barrel, meaning that you don’t have to worry about the darts falling out of the barrel. While this blaster is meant to be used with Elite darts, it can as well work with other darts like the suckers, whistler and tag darts. With the special value pack, you get twice the number of darts than the original pack. The Rough Cut offers good value for its price.
ProsCons
Double darts Problem with defect darts
No batteries

5. Nerf N-Strike Elite Stockade Blaster – Video Game Looks

 

Nerf N-Strike Elite Stockade Blaster review

 

The Elite Stockade blaster is an upgrade to the wildly popular N-Strike Barricade. However, unlike the Barricade, the Stockade comes with a stock. Apart from the Stock, the Stockade and the Barricade are visually similar, though the Stockade comes with upgraded internals.

Just like the Blockade, the Stockade fires from an internal battery powered flywheel, which allows you to fire the semi-automatic blaster as rapidly as you can squeeze the trigger. A flywheel powered blaster basically means that the gun has a set of two wheels slightly apart that spin very fast. When the gun is fired, a dart is pushed forward so that it gets caught between the two spinning wheels, consequently getting thrown forward.

However, instead of the modern day flywheel switches, the Stockade employs a traditional to control the flywheels, which also acts as a safety feature, blocking movement of the trigger when the switch is in the off position.

Just like the Barricade before it, the Stockade features a manual load barrel capable of holding up to 10 darts, an overly large muzzle that gives this blaster the cool look of something straight out of a video game, a jam door mounted at the top and a thumb controlled flywheel switch. Unlike the Barricade, the Stockade comes with a removable shoulder stock.

This stock looks great and has a brilliant dart holder that allows you to carry an extra set of darts without damaging them. For those who are left handed, no need to worry, since the stock on the Stockade comes with an ambidextrous release switch. The only shortcoming of the stock is that it is not very suitable for a big person. While both are flywheelers, the Stockade features a new set of flywheels, designed like those found on the Rayven, with a larger circumference and a smooth surface, which accounts for better performance of the Stockade. The stockade also uses a similar motor to that found on the Rayven.

Apart from the larger circumference and smooth surfaces, the rapid speed at which the Stockade fires darts can also be attributed to better ball bearings and higher revs. This, coupled with better design on the new Elite darts makes the Stockade unmistakably superior to the Barricade. The Stockade is also less noisy as compared to the Barricade, and offers a range of about 10 meters.
ProsCons
Rapid fire Trigger is a little touchy
Attachable stock Smaler then it looks
Easy to reload

6. Nerf Rebelle The Divergent Series Allegiant Six-Shot Blaster – Easy to Use

 

 Nerf Rebelle The Divergent Series Allegiant Six-Shot Blaster review

 

This lightweight blaster was designed based on the on the Divergent Series, a feature film series set in a dystopian society that follows the story of Tris, a brave little girl in a post-apocalyptic world.

Just like Tris, kids can delve into a world of their own adventures with the Nerf Rebelle Allegiant Six Shot Blaster.

This cool blaster comes with a barrel capable of holding six foam darts and can fire the darts up to a distance of about 22 meters (75 feet). Designed particularly for girls, the Nerf Rebelle Allegiant Six Shot Blaster is the ultimate representation of beauty, strength and power.
If you feel like that describes you or your kid, then this is the gun for you. Load up for action, team up with your friends and – with power and style on your side – and make every shot your best as you come out guns blazing to show the world what you are about.

While this blaster might seem unfamiliar to some, it is essentially a repainted Nerf Rebelle Spylight, minus the strange looking flashlight that is mounted on top of the Spylight. This means that their features are quite similar. The repaint is most definitely an improvement from the Spylight’s décor.

Since it is designed specifically for young girls, the Nerf Rebelle Allegiant Six Shot Blaster has a small handle, though it feels comfortable even in the hands of a bigger person. Loading this blaster is quick and easy, since the darts are loaded from the open end front. At the back of the priming slide, the blaster has a single sling mount, while the handle contains a secret storage compartment capable of hiding two extra Elite darts. The revolver-like blaster also comes with one strap point and a tactical rail for adding tactical rail accessories.

The Nerf Rebelle Allegiant Six-Shot Blaster is a gun meant for the dauntless trooper. Just like its elder sibling (The Skylight), you can use this blaster in single fire mode or pull back the priming slide to blast your opponents with a rapid fire of all the six darts in slam-fire mode. When using this gun, I would caution against aiming for the face or eyes to avoid any risk of injury. It is also advisable to only use the darts meant for the Nerf Rebelle Allegiant Six Shot Blaster, and to avoid modifying the darts or the blaster in any way.
ProsCons
Cool stickers included Using allot of batteries
Removable stock
semi-automatic

7. Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Blaster – 3 Darts Per Second

 

Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Blaster review

 

If you want to take your N-Strike battling capabilities a notch higher, then the Elite Rampage is definitely the weapon for you. Designed to be firmer, more robust and with an improved range of fire, this blaster is a modern day Nerf Raider. It has been redesigned to be leaner and meaner.

 

 

This spring-powered direct plunger Nerf gun comes with a drum capable of holding twenty five foam darts, and includes slam fire, allowing you to rain down a barrage of darts on your opponents from distances of up to 75 feet away, with a rate of fire reaching up to 3 darts per second, which is really impressive.
The redone color scheme on the Rampage also gives it a much more modern look and feel.

Using the Rampage feels quite easy. To reload, you simply have to pull back the priming handle and release the dart drum. Reload the drum with your darts, replace it back, push the priming handle forward and you are ready to rumble!

If you want to go out on a full rampage against your opponents, you simply need to repeatedly slide the slam-fire handle while squeezing the trigger to let out a spray of foam darts. However, you should ensure that you pull the slam fire handle all the way, since doing it halfway might lead to jamming or ruined darts. Its handle is ergonomically designed for comfort and excellent grip even in the toughest of conditions, and what’s more, it also has a secret compartment for hiding foam darts, so you will never have to worry about getting caught pants down without ammunition. This is one of the latest editions from Hasbro.

There are some amazing features that make the Rampage even cooler. One of these is its dart clip. Rather than traditional dart clips that are mounted from below, the Rampage dart clip is mounted from the side, which looks cool and convenient, particularly for the gun’s slim body design. The slim body design makes handling the Rampage so easy. The Rampage also comes with a tactical rail and a jam door that’s accessible from the right side. It also has a transparent which allows you to see the darts, giving it a somewhat futuristic look.

Overall, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Blaster is a wildly popular and cheap Nerf gun, and an excellent upgrade to the Nerf Raider. For most Nerfers, what matters most is range and accuracy, both of which the Rampage delivers pretty incredibly. The decision to go with a smaller dart clip also makes is also a great win as it makes the gun a lot less cumbersome to use.
ProsCons

Well, as you have probably come to expect with DXRacer, you know that you will be getting the highest levels of luxury and comfort with the Drifting Series DOH/DM61/NWR. Their designers are masters when it comes to research into ergonomics, and all this research has found its way into the Drifting Series DOH/DM61/NWR, culminating in a superb gaming experience for those using this awesome PC gaming chair.

Like the DOH/CE120/NC chair, this chair is made of the same high quality breathable PU leather style vinyl that you will find in a modern race car. In fact, if you were to get rid of the arm rests and the base, this chair could comfortably work in a race car.
Notice that? Imagine enjoying the same comfort in your game room that is provided in the highly demanding sports car racing environment. In addition, it comes with 3D adjustable armrests that have special soft padding to protect your shoulders, forearms and wrists. As with most DXRacer chairs, it has an extra high backrest to make sure that your neck and the whole of your spinal column is fully protected, meaning you don’t have to constantly worry about neck and back pains.

The DXRacer Drifting Series DOH/DM61/NWR New edge Edition Racing Bucket Seat offers amazing customization. A backrest angle adjustor allows you to shift between completely upright to tilting to an angle of 135 degrees when you want to relax or take a nap. To control the seat height of your gaming chair, this seat comes with a pneumatic seat height adjustment featuring a high quality adjustable height gas spring. The seat also comes with a headrest that is integrated into the backrest. A conventional tilt mechanism that is integrated into the chair allows the user to enjoy rocking functionality. Like all DXRacer PC gaming chairs, it has a five point star shaped base for maximum stability and comes with a lumbar cushion and headrest pillow as bonuses. Do I really need to talk about the warranty? Classical DXRacer, meaning you have nothing to worry about when you buy this chair.
