arent they gonna make and actual nerf guns? kuz i got like thousands of cool ideas


KevinMarch 21, 2011 at 11:54 am

They will, these are just the spring releases. I’ll add the N-Strike guns as they announce them.


HelioApril 1, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Like what?


coldiceboxApril 11, 2011 at 7:10 pm

o, well i sorta knew that. my friend said they r in the process of making a new gun called the destroyer thats fully automatic like —– not – - – - – unlike the stampede and the vulcan. but he went to the bathroom and came back and tried to get back on but it said the page was copywrited.


the dudeMay 5, 2011 at 2:48 pm

and u believe him?


coldiceboxMay 25, 2011 at 6:47 pm

well ya i kinda do

Ninja005April 28, 2011 at 4:40 pm

The nerf super soaker that I got from Target broke so i got a new one and that one broke also so i wasn’t really impressed… But the others w/ a clip looked like a fun idea so it wont be long until i get the others!!


IANMarch 20, 2011 at 11:42 am

I think the quick 16 has a bad slam fire and is to bulky


KevinMarch 21, 2011 at 11:55 am

It could be, but I think it looks pretty cool and easy to handle. We’ll see!


UnnownAugust 16, 2011 at 3:39 pm

its unlike other clips the clip doesn’t come out. It jams if you hold in the the trigger unlike the raider. But other than that…….. its a good gun.


PumpkinEaterMarch 21, 2011 at 1:49 pm

Does the quick 16 magazine/clip work in all nerf guns?be really cool if it did.


JohnMarch 24, 2011 at 11:19 pm

it would be awsome is the backward banana clip could but no, like all the new tag guns, the clip is built into the gun :(


coldiceboxApril 11, 2011 at 7:11 pm

no it probable doesnt fit the guns


Ninja005March 24, 2011 at 8:46 pm

These look awesome i hope that they have distance because the ones i have dont have allot of distance… i have allot!!!!


PhilMarch 26, 2011 at 12:44 pm

They should come out with a nerf cannon


AhzamApril 1, 2011 at 1:45 am

they do but its not a cannon but its a rocket launcher– the titan as-1


thomApril 3, 2011 at 8:14 am

that would be awesome!


stephenMarch 31, 2011 at 1:31 pm

these are the nerf guns of the future


danielMarch 31, 2011 at 3:17 pm

The water gun clip is so clever. And I like the quick 16 and the swarmfire the best. I agree with phil. Plus I realy need a automatic-semi automatic blaster.:)


KevinApril 5, 2011 at 7:01 pm

Agreed, the water gun clip is pretty awesome.


JESSEApril 1, 2011 at 6:42 pm

these are EPIC!!!


BobanationApril 4, 2011 at 4:51 pm

I like the swarmfire and the tornado super soaker they look like the best I do also like the quick 16 but I preffer the raider


nerf fanaticApril 10, 2011 at 11:44 am

with u onthat 1.i hav 5 different models but my best is the vulcan


coldiceboxApril 11, 2011 at 7:14 pm

my best 1 that i use is the stampede with raider clip and stock. i almost never use the shield unless in going against something bigger than me or a 1/5 odds.


the dudeMay 3, 2011 at 10:08 am

how do you put a stock on the stampede?!


coldiceboxAugust 25, 2011 at 6:59 pm

o i mean the grip i keep calling it a stock

Slammin SamApril 5, 2011 at 1:54 am

Loving the new colour scheme!

Swarmfire: This looks a bit weird, and I don’t like the guns that require big expensive batteries to run :/

Sharp Shot: This looks like a revamped nitefinder, not too awesome at all…

Speed Load: This looks EPIC! Its just like a pistol! And I think the top loading system will be verrrry interesting…

Quick 16: This has to be the best of the lineup so far, looking forward to this one!

I really hope that these will be as easy to mod as the ones already released :D


LeoApril 5, 2011 at 9:16 am

Do you know when it’ll be out in the stores? and also can quick 16 hold clip and whistler darts?
Nice reviews!


KevinApril 5, 2011 at 6:59 pm

I’m pretty sure that all of the Dart Tag guns will be in store by Saturday. That’s what Nerf said on Facebook, anyway;)


nerf fanaticApril 10, 2011 at 11:46 am

i just got the new spectre.flippin AWESOME!!!!!!!!


coldiceboxApril 11, 2011 at 7:23 pm

is the vortex real? it looks like a different brand of toy gun like something kuz the clip is weird and the gun is green… just saying


the dudeMay 3, 2011 at 10:11 am

yeah, the vortex series is real and its coming out in september-october time this year


coldiceboxMay 25, 2011 at 6:47 pm



PrunesJuly 4, 2011 at 7:55 am

Dude i j st saw a video of the vortex in action and it shot30-40 ft STRAIGHT.No arching.I could use a scope on that thing!


fishyfishJuly 6, 2011 at 7:45 am

they should make a nerf gun that should hold 100 darts n its automatic


aaronSeptember 2, 2011 at 3:11 pm

that gun will bee relaesed in 2012 its called the semper fire and it has 8 barrels its sweet =)


your worse nightmareSeptember 6, 2011 at 1:53 am

yep…..but its need long time to reload :)


joshua pechacekApril 25, 2011 at 8:56 pm

i think personnly they should make a clip FIVE ft long. whats your opinion?i want it five f long so i can terrorize my sisters!!!!!!!!!!!!LMAO


the dudeJune 15, 2011 at 11:27 am

my opinion is that that would never work >:)


coldiceboxAugust 25, 2011 at 7:01 pm

dont make it 5 feet long make it 1 foot long and have it curve around in a way 5 times lol


the dudeMay 5, 2011 at 2:53 pm

I reckon nerf should make a new belt fed gun with a faster rate of fire than the vulcan, like the vulcan on the wii game (7darts per second). And also, they should do a re-release of the dart tag magstrike in the new colour scheme and make it come with 3-4 clips.


the dudeMay 28, 2011 at 5:23 am

OMG nerf are making a ‘whiteout’ series of blasters so far they have made the whiteout longstrike and the whiteout maverick


coldiceboxMay 30, 2011 at 5:09 pm

they shud look like the super soakers ;)


Random GuyJuly 1, 2011 at 12:01 am

Dudes I got a white out series night finder


coldiceboxMay 30, 2011 at 5:08 pm

they should make a gun like the barricade but is a rifle and uses the vulcan belt and comes with the lazer like the recons


coldiceboxMay 30, 2011 at 5:15 pm

they gotta make diferent clips like an extended clip or a drum clip for the super soakers kuz my tornado stike runs out after like 5-7 shots with just the normal clip


RobertJune 6, 2011 at 8:51 pm

You’re really excited for the new nerf guns aren’t you coldicebox (don’t worry so am I).


coldiceboxJune 11, 2011 at 6:54 pm

yes, yes i am ;)


the dudeJune 15, 2011 at 11:11 am

same 4 me :)


Random GuyJuly 1, 2011 at 12:02 am

Me three


the dudeJune 7, 2011 at 2:57 pm

the nerf vortex guns are up on the entertainer uk website! legendary


DustinJune 13, 2011 at 9:35 am

what nerf gun connects with the Barricade?, and does anyone have the scout that comes with a dartboard that came out in 2006? I do.


cullenskiJune 15, 2011 at 12:08 pm

hmmmmm. . . an interesting, but no N-strikes in that mix, where are they?


dj nerferJune 26, 2011 at 2:02 pm

the new dart tag guns are all to bulky and very impractical


Mastercom1June 27, 2011 at 5:41 am

Are they going to bring out more in the n-strike range. I’ve got a longshot and I would really like them to make more sniper rifles. overall pretty good-looking guns but not right for me.


coldiceboxAugust 25, 2011 at 7:04 pm

the years almost over and havent seen any new n-strike gun comercals yet


Random GuyJuly 1, 2011 at 12:00 am

I got a white out series nerf nightfinder its the same but has a really cool paint job.


JAKEJuly 16, 2011 at 1:06 am

this things is awsome i hope i can buy 20 darts DX


maxAugust 2, 2011 at 12:18 am

the only new super soaker I like is the hydro cannon,it can actually put out a fire as well. It has a jack on the side for the hose


you dont need to knowAugust 5, 2011 at 12:33 am

I have a longshot and whenever it fires the bullet always curves,is there any way to fix this.


your worse nightmareSeptember 6, 2011 at 1:56 am

maybe its because of the WIND


stefanoAugust 5, 2011 at 9:12 am

nice gunz


angelitoAugust 11, 2011 at 7:57 pm

I have the recon, maverick, dart belt, throwing axe and the tree bladed axe. I highly recomend all of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


angelitoAugust 11, 2011 at 8:04 pm

what do you guis think the best nerf gun is?


angelitoAugust 11, 2011 at 8:24 pm

not that I have but the raider looks good and all but it gets cloged realy easily. but some times if you get a good one it dosent……………


lachlanSeptember 11, 2011 at 2:30 am

cool guns how much did thay cost any way THAY ARE COOL!!!!
