X-Shot Stealth Review

The X-shot series is another non-Nerf blaster set. What makes them different, however, is that they have a water gun built into a Nerf-like dart blaster. They are (as you can see above) green and black, and use black darts with yellow suction tips. Now I'll proceed to review this particular blaster, the X-Shot Stealth.

Star Wars Captain Rex Blaster Review

The Star Wars blaster released in 2011 has 3 variants: Captain Rex's Pistol (above), Cad Bane's pistol and General Grevious' pistol. I will be reviewing Captain Rex's pistol as it's the only one I have.

Lanard Scatter Blast Grenade Review

The Lanard Scatter Blast Grenade is a truly unique toy. It's made by one of Nerf's major competitors, Lanard, who also makes the renowned Tripleshot/Shotgun, the very awesome looking Punisher Gatling Blaster and the Big Salvo rocket launcher. The thing when you're against several opponents, or you're in a cramped, indoors space with a dangerous enemy is that you want to take them down fast. You could use Magstrikes/Powerclips/etc, but the risk is that someone will get a shot off before you mow them down. With this, you could lob it, then duck into cover and listen to them cry out.

Nerf Longshot CS-6 Review

After all my hate posts of the Longshot, I have a new favourite. No more. Too bad Longshot. I've reverted to my good old Alpha Trooper. The Longshot was originally released in a blue/yellow paint scheme, then the current yellow/orange paintscheme. For a short time, it was also released in a rather exclusive red/orange paint scheme, dubbed the 'Crimson Series'. The latter paint scheme is extremely rare, and extremely valuable. The current Longshot comes with the Longshot Front Gun (LSFG), the bolt (in 2 pieces), a very large scope, a 6-clip (mag) and darts, and the Longshot itself.

Nerf Tactical Vest Usage Tips

Some usage tips for using the Tactical Vest.

Nerf Camo Ammo (Whistlers) Review

The Nerf Camo Ammo is a rather unusual addition to the N-Strike collection. It has 3 variants: Streamlines (grey urban camo), Suctions (green/brown woodland camo) and Whistlers (arctic camo). I have the Whistlers, as pictured. The kit comes with 50 camo darts, and a bag in a similar camo look. It's awesome.

Nerf Tactical Vest Review

The Tactical Vest is a pretty good Nerf accessory, if you can spare enough money for it. It holds 4 clips (mags) (6-clips [mags], 18-clips [mags] and 18-drums are all fine), allowing for a minimum of 24 darts, and a maximum of 72+ darts. I haven't tried 35-drums - I don't have any. It also holds 12 darts just above the clips (mags), which you can use to reload your non CS-blasters, or refill your clips (mags) if you have no other blasters. It has a holster in the lower right which you can use to holster a Spectre, Maverick and Barrel Break (and probably more), which is useful when your primary (usually a CS blaster because of the clip [mag] holders) runs out. There's also a zip pocket opposite the holster which fits a Reflex (and similar sized pistols), darts and a small torch. On the back, there's a small sword sheath which is good if you have any foam swords. Really, though, it's like bringing a knife to a gun fight. Nearly literally. (knife ~ foam sword, gun ~ blaster).
