I dont know much about the Barrel Break yet, but here is what I do know:

  • The Barrel Break IX-2 will go on sale in August

awesome gun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!it fires 2 shots, which makes it DD, or double damage. it does have a downside, each shot, you have to reload. overall, its a good gun. no, its not cool, its awesome!!!!!!

Frankly watching demo videos of it it looks cool and that is about it. Takes more steps than i would like to reload the barrels. If I had to pick between it and another gun like nite finder or any other single shot i would take the single shots for their faster reloading.

I have this gun and its fun to play with but its useless in a battle purely because of its slow reload time- i average 7 seconds reload and my friend once managed 6 seconds, so if you want a gun thats fun to mess around with then get it.


Prunes July 3, 2011 at 4:46 pm

Dude its my Primary! My friends fear it. Perfect for ambushing if you ask me.


Cassius December 26, 2010 at 6:48 pm

Awesome gun definitely worth getting. Slow reload time is of course an issue, but providing youre in cover it should be fine. Decent range (actually, pretty good), lower accuracy but double darts compensates somewhat. Reload can be done in under 5 seconds with some practice (generally depends on how easily the darts slip into the chamber).


Steve December 31, 2010 at 12:02 pm

This one of my favourite nerf blasters. reload is 5-6 seconds which is kinda long, but its range (25-35 FEET) and amazing accuracy compensates for the long reload. This is my fav back up weapon cause of the reasons ive just said and that it is very portable (Its just small enough to be held in the holster of th tactical vest). I give it a 9/10


Metalman98 January 4, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Great gun! I found that it fits perfectly in the holster on the Tactical Vest, which is a practical use for it. I would recommend this as a secondary, not a primary.


Nate January 5, 2011 at 5:50 pm

It would be cool if it had two clips,( one for each barrel)I like the ammo storage wich fits on the tactical rail and it can fit any darts on it, although I do not own.


william February 4, 2011 at 10:16 am

first off i must admit i do not own as i could not find in my area. that being said i am reviewing based of standard assumption and nerf history.

by looks this appears to be a sawn off 2 barrel pistol shotgun. very nice in looks and with ammo rail kind of usefull. however all in all my opnion of the gun is poor.

for a pistol only 2 shots is very limiting and while several like nightfinder and firefly are only 1 shot in a pistol scenario it is very risky.

pistol is not compatible with stocks or barrels which is prob not a issue but just putting that out there. assumed by picture btw

range from reading reviews is about average for a nerf pistol nothing fancy. i would assume splitting aim into 2 barrels probally affects accuracy and motion wobble kills aim.

while the rail may seem usefull remember that in 2010 clip based combat was very much on the rise and singular combat is just to big a risk to warrant needing a ammo rail. also most single shot ammo users have back up ammo in puches to prevent gun/gun ammo holds pinching and ruining the ammo. (common issue on the nightfinders).

all in all the only benifet i can give is a dual barrel shotgun which is cool but not unique. in my local area a generic non nerf company has released a shotgun rifle of full length with shotgun shell based system which earns a nicer look factor thant he pistol. being both non nerf and a full length rifle it has more power than most nerf rifles let alone the nerf pistol range and i would recommend that over an offical nerf shotgun pistol.

this is my 2 cents on this gun. dont waste time or money as you will most likely regret it. that being said i do not own or hve physically seen gun in use as yet so if you see it and think its good go for it.


the dude February 11, 2011 at 11:40 am

How can you be so opinionated when you dont even have the gun?


william March 7, 2011 at 10:47 pm

just genral knowledge from nerfs history mainly. to be honest i am getting bored of nerf brand and am working on making my own flywheel gun so i can scale it to power i like and make the M8 avenger design from mass effect. nothing better than a gun that defines you


Scooter February 22, 2011 at 12:00 am

This gun is interesting I got it at toysrus right after thanksgivinghmm I think its called black fridayanyways, this gun has the ability to shoot one or two bullets which is alright. The problem is that it takes some time to reload and even when you do, its kinda hard to put in the bullets. All my friends love this gun because its unqiue and special. I dont use it but its a good item to have


Cassius February 22, 2011 at 11:34 am

don’t waste time or money as you will most likely regret it. that being said i do not own or hve physically seen gun in use

Ignore much of what he says, its generally wrong


william March 7, 2011 at 10:55 pm

ouch that hurt.

while not the most technical person out there i take pride in posting based of personal experince and previous nerf history with the guns. admitivly i am bias towards nerf wars and general gun survival but thats my upbringing to see how well i can fortify a position with limited options.

but as i say in most of my posts if you disagree or you see gun in use and liek it sure go with it. i just try to keep a honest general oppinion for the average joe.


Cassius March 27, 2011 at 8:03 am

Im not trying to troll you lol, but its worth bearing in mind that to accurately review something, trying it out beforehand generally helps. All Im saying is dont bash a gun you havent even seen in action; even you might be surprised about how it actually performs.


Adam March 30, 2011 at 11:06 pm

The Nerf Barrel Break IX-2 is probably one of the best NERF guns I own, period. Its powerful, accurate and reliable; the ammo rail doesnt hurt either. However, when Im in the heat of battle I tend to get annoyed at the barrel when Im trying to reload since you have to tilt it until the arrows on the sides line up, and only then can you put it back once youve got your darts in. The rail also doesnt do a very good job of holding onto the gun either, and I found it to frequently fall off while pulling the darts out.

Its still a wonderful gun, but its bogged down by the reload time, which isnt really a big flaw in itself. As far as I know its their first attempt at a shotgun, and in my opinion they did a brilliant job.


Kevin April 5, 2011 at 7:02 pm

I really like it too. That reminds me that I havent reviewed this yetneed to get on that.


NerfWar12 April 6, 2011 at 2:42 pm

Its a great backup gun or close-range starter. I think it is awesome becaues of the double-shot. A good dodger would now have to dodge 2 bullets instead of 1! Are they that good???


gilang April 10, 2011 at 5:36 am

its really powerful gun i can play it for like 8 times in one day the range is a quiet long ,nice grip and can fire one or two times at onces BEST NERF PRODUCTS EVERRRRRRRRRRRRR


kevin April 13, 2011 at 5:42 am

the truth is the barrel break was for the purpose of base defense as a last resort however it is not a very efficient gun the additional 8 bullet holder is good but would be better on a maverick due to the fact that the barrel breaks tactical rail is in a horrible place cos u can aim properly and also it is not advisable to hoslter it as if u tilt the gun downwards the bullets fall out


j-dog April 15, 2011 at 11:50 am

this is not a good gun at all it shoots around 10 -15 ft and it can not shot them one at a time. it jams all time and the darts fall out the barrel. it is way to much for such a bad gun and the trigger is almost impossible to pull dowm ( do not buy)


jacob May 23, 2011 at 10:33 pm

i am getting it and also j-dog it can shoot 1 bullet at a time half trigger pull=left barrel full trigger pull=right barrel full trigger pull with 2 bullets at same time= both barrel.1 con is reverse plunger (1 for each barrel of course)


the dude June 1, 2011 at 4:38 am

what should I get out of this or the buzzbee double shot


Mike June 19, 2011 at 3:41 pm

A lot has been said here about the reload time of the gun and that is a problem, as is the cost: £25 here in the UK gets you a Raider or Recon and ammo pack or just the stock Break Barrel.

Here at university, we play Humans vs Zombies with 28 Days Later style zombies so you have to be fast on your feet and on the draw. One of our guys got this and I gave him hell for it originally since I thought it was a waste of money. We removed the ARs and it puts out the same as a Maverick but has a significant advantage in our games: spread. It looks like a shotgun and when youve got a crazed Infected bearing down on you, it works like one too. Granted, its still a last ditch thing but its important to remember that, like many Nerf guns, it still has a role. This and a modded Alpha Trooper causes our Infected a lot of problems. :)


Exo594 June 23, 2011 at 10:04 pm

@william: Your comments are based purely on speculation. I own the gun, and it functions marvelously. It is rather hard to mod, because it is not capable of being powerstocked, and springs are hard to find for it, but mine works quite well. A lot of you seem to be overlooking the fact that it is a split trigger, so each barrel can be fired one at a time. Even with its small stock barrels, it fires quite accurately. The ammo rail is also functional and holds stock darts rather tightly. And just having a knowledge of Nerfs gun history does not make you a good nerfer. I would prefer this gun to a Nite Finder in a stock war just because of the double shot ability. Sometimes you need to think about guns in their tactical purpose with all their abilities, not just stats like ammo count.


HeatSeeka July 2, 2011 at 2:05 am

Buzzbe dubble shot is terrible.
The majority of the time it duznt come out of the barrel.i know from experience. ya also have too waste time getn your shells.mes to quality
On top of that buzzbee is crap brand i got the buzbee rifle and it jams 5/6 shots.

Nerf is da bom wen it comes to quality dart guns

Nerf all the way bros!


leong chang yung July 10, 2011 at 2:43 am

what nerf gun is the best? deploy cs-6 or barrel break the best?


Prunes July 14, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Barrell break!


JoShiSdAbEsT July 29, 2011 at 7:33 pm

the barrel break is awesome, my friend has one and i loved when i first saw it. OMG i wont sleep until i get it!!!


N3RFboyz: Nate August 3, 2011 at 10:52 pm

This gun is a beast. It makes a GREAT primary, and a KICK-@$$ secondary(dont know if swearingis aloud on this site) # 8 on my Top 20 nerf guns.
