Nerf Vulcan Quick Facts!
- Series: Nerf N Strike
- Ammo capacity: 25 darts
- Range: 15-20 feet
- Released: 2008
Part of the Nerf N-Strike line, the Nerf Vulcan is one of the most ambitious Nerf guns that Hasbro has ever made.
The first thing you’ll notice when you take the Vulcan out of the box is that this is a really big Nerf gun, not at all suited for a stealth mission. This is to be expected — it is a machine gun after all — but you won’t appreciate the size and weight of the gun until you hold it in your hands for the first time.
Once you take the Vulcan out of the box, you’ll notice that it comes with a few accessories: a much-needed tripod, an ammo box, and an ammo belt. Inside the ammo box, you’ll find 25 darts loaded in the ammo belt.
If you’re thinking about buying the Vulcan, you’re probably attracted to the idea of firing off 25 rounds in less than 10 seconds. And really, who wouldn’t enjoy blasting their friends/kids/baby seals with that kind of firepower? Unfortunately, as appealing as the idea is, the Vulcan isn’t all high fives and fist pumps.
For starters, the price tag on the Nerf Vulcan is pretty hefty ($40). It also requires 6 D batteries to operate (unless you want to go into single-shot manual pump mode). As you would expect, it also takes a very significant amount of time to load 25 rounds into the belt after every 10 seconds of fun.
One of the primary complaints about the Nerf Vulcan is its tendency to jam. In my experience, this problem can be mitigated significantly by keeping the belt straight and ‘feeding’ it in with your non-trigger hand. However, I can see that younger kids would probably have a hard time with this, and I’d imagine they’d grow frustrated rather quickly.
The range on this Nerf gun is also somewhat lackluster, but in the end, it’s acceptable given the awesome rate of fire. Expect average shots to reach about 15-20 feet.
On the positive side, the Vulcan is an absolute blast to use, and like many N-Strike guns, it features the tactical rail system. This means that it’s compatible with accessories from other Nerf guns, such as the Recon’s sights, the Longshot’s scope, and the Unity Power System’s scout blaster.
All in all, the Nerf Vulcan is a great deal of fun and should keep you busy for hours — even if most of that time is spent reloading.
