Nerf Gun Reviews
All of the following guns that are reviewed I have used.
This gun has a funky design that is not very useful at all, and the only
up about this gun is it has a fair range. It is basically like a normal sidearm
except that it shoots to weird, and because of this I would choose a more
practically designed gun.
This gun is absolutely horrible!! It straps onto your arm which actually
hinders you rather than allowing more free space. And even if it didn't do much
the range is so cruddy its hard to hit something five feet away! While its a cute design
it is deffinently not effective.
This gun is way underrated!! I know it has horrible range and accuracy and shoots balls,
this is definately the indoor gun of choice! This thing houses eight balls and can shoot
very rapidly. Who needs accuracy when you have this many balls coming at you? I hope people
will get my point.
Big Bad Bow
The big bad bow is the snipers milkshake! Much better than the old bow, this bow
HAS MORE POWER AND COCKS! Its speed it unequaled in any nerf gun I know, making it virtually
impossible to dodge. This things arrows are unlike normal arrows as they are spiraled, making
them not bent as easily. I really do recommend this, however it is not too good if you are an attacker
or at the front of the line.
Bow and Arrow
The bow and arrow has allot of fame and time to claim it. However, I don;t think it deserves
the honor it has. After all, it has a manual launching and its easy to
accidentally discharge it. It also uses arrows which means that the slightest bend
in them will make them go way off course. Its not too powerful so the range isn't too great.
It will only store two extra missiles so if you miss with them your'e practically
dead because you can't hold a second weapon it's so big.
This gun is almost a masterpiece! It holds eight rounds rapid fire sort of like the ballzooka
except it shoots darts which means it has a MUCH better range. So what more could you ask for?
I'll tell you what. The accuracy is so horrible by the way you have to shoot it that on average at five feet
two out of the eight will hit! Also this gun has been known for jamming, and I have seen a chain break

Most people won't even consider this gun because it's so costly. The
reason for this is the walkie-talkie. I will say the walkie-talkie is a piece of
crud, but the actual gun part is great! It shoots almost as far as the eagle eye
and is alot easier to cock, and it also holds two extra rounds. I love
having a combo of two of these, and these are so accurate that with two shoots
you are bound to hit someone, even at long range! I got two of these at a thrift
store for $.99 each.
If you read the big bad bow review you would see how much I like as a sniper weapon,
well I like this doubly so! This is a cruddy toy when unmodified, but when it is this
is a sniping machine. This has a range that is even farther than the eagle eye! Not
to mention it is pinpoint accurate. The only downside is it is one-shot,
but what can you expect from such a long range gun?
This is a flimsy piece of crud. That's all I have to say.
The eagle eye is one of the most long range guns I have. The accuracy is
greatly reduced because you can't see the barrel as the sight is over
it. It is sort of hard to cock and that really requires two hands so
its hard to have a weapon in the other hand. However, the sight is
very good in night fight missions.
This weapon is more a play toy than a nerf war toy. It has no range whatsoever,
and the clip frequently falls out. However, it is fun to tourn the lights out
and shoot the darts at things.
This gun has allot of fancy features such as the extendable barrel as well as s "hyper sight".
It also looks really neat. However, all of these features are useless.
As proven with many other nerf guns, sights never help for anything.
And when you extend the barrel it absolutely does nothing but makes the bullet
fall out. This gun is a one-shot and doesn't have that great of a range,
and the only pro is that it has a good ammo storage.
This gun is not any better than a standard sidearm, and in fact has a little
bit lower range. It holds two extra bullets which is ok, and it shoots
one shot at intermediate range. Not anything too poor or too great
Lock n' Load
The Lock n' Load is THE farthest shooting sidearm in the history of nerf.
This can hit somebody all the way at the other end of the yard, and I've
done it too! The only big drawback is its accuracy is decreased a little because
it shoots high (although it still is highly accurate). It also has a
pretty high rate of fire for a single shot weapon because it is so easy to cock.
The manta ray is a pretty cool weapon. First off, it is huge and designed
to be like a shield. However, most people don't play that you can use
the shield. But secondly and most importantly, it holds four rounds,
and you can either choose to shoot two at a time or four at once. The rounds
have a good spread so it is extremely hard to dodge this gun. However, the
range is a bit lacking.
This was one of the first nerf guns so what do you expect? It uses balls
which makes it have an effective range of about 8 feet, it has the weirdest
firing mechanism seen, and its is way bulky. I don't recommend you get this
While this gun is a little awkward and lacks range, its ability to hold four darts
ready to go is quite handy. This is probably my holdout weapon of choice
because it can shoot one dart at a time meaning it gets four shots
without reloading. Also it can be a good assault weapon because it has
a fair rate of fire and can shoot two darts at once.
This gun is an ok assault gun, but not very good at anything else. It holds
four darts that can be shot very rapidly which is good, but it has a very poor range
making it horrible for outdoors. However, it does also have a good ammo storage.
While being able to hold four darts ready to go and has a fair range,
the rattler has no accuracy due to its poor shooting mechanism. If you want
an assault weapon like this but without the weird firing mechanism I would
go for the ratchet blast.
The razor fin is not really a very good weapon, primarily because its range
is totally horrible. The ONLY reason I would ever use this in a nerf war
is it has two darts ready to go. However, the Sharpshooter II has the same
sort of thing and is alot better.
The rip chord is actually a little bit better of a weapon than I thought it
would be. I don't know any other nerf weapon that uses a pull chord,
but I like it. The pull chord can make it shoot all five of its darts
off in no time, killing pretty much anything that steps in front of it.
However, the pull chord is very awkward drastically reducing the guns accuracy.
On average only one or two of the shots will actually hit, but thats
still better than say a one shot crossbow for instance.
The secret shot is definately an awesome sidearm, and I would say about ties
the Lock n' Load. It shoots almost as far but shoots a second dart from
the bottom. The only downside is that it shoots micro darts, but everything
else about it is very good.
Secret Shot II
(No picture available)
This gun is very different than the original secret shot, and pretty much
worse. For one thing this gun is pump meaning it takes alot longer to reload
than cocking, and I tested out that it shoots just within a foot of the original.
I really don't recommend this gun because there are so many other guns that are
Most people say thee SSII shoots really far and I believe them, but I bought
mine used and I think the spring is very weak, and this rating and whole
review I am talking about MY SSII. As I said mine has a bad range for the
top barrel, but the bottom can shoot pretty far. The good thing about this gun
is it holds two shots so you can out rate of fire amny of the snipers.
The sneak shot is all but worthless around corners for what it is meant for.
However, it is an ok long range gun but it has a poor cocking mechanism like
the eagle eye.

Although the split shot looks very cheesy and its very obvious its an off-brand,
it is actually a pretty cool gun. It shoots two shots at once and there
is a handle with a trigger to separate the barrels, giving them a good spread.
While it has horrible range and accuracy with the darts it comes with,
if you use nerf micro darts it can shoot very far.
Super Maxx 3000
This gun is the awesomest all around gun in the nerf world yet! Able to hold
eight shots and shoot at extremely far distances, what more could you ask for?
This gun is great for strafing assaulting defending, and sniping! The only
problem is sometimes the barrel skips.
The tornado is the longest range nerf gun ever invented. It shoots small
rings which make it go incredibly far but they go way off course at the slightest
wind, and also go really slow which means they are easy to dodge.
However, this gun can hit pretty much anything that you can see. This
gun is great for sniping in bases at enemies a long way off.
The triple torch is an awesome weapon only when firing micro darts, which
is sort of a drawback. However, it shoots these darts extremely far and I
can hit people with more ease than I can with my modified crossbow! If you
like one shot long range guns this ones for you.
This weapon shoots a huge missile farther than any nerf gun I have known in
my life! However, it takes GOBS of time to reload and when you do have it
ready you CANNOT hit anything past 25 feet or its luck! I don't advise
you waist your money on this.

This gun is absolutely horrible! It shoots micro darts at extremely low ranges
and the tail takes time to whip up as well as drastically reducing its accuracy.
I very much do not recommend this gun.
