The Hyperfire was released in fall 2016 along with the Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike, Rival Khaos, and Mega Mastodon. On New Years Day, I played Capture the Flag with my friends. There were two ways to win. You either touched the pole at the other team’s base or shot the players on the other team. This is much more reliable than my Rapidstrike, which I got for Christmas, along with the Triad EX-3.
It requires four D batteries. Hyperfire only has one short tactical rail which is not very tactical. This definitely works better than my Rapidstrike but the design of the Rapidstrike is so much better. Hyperfire is very balanced because the batteries are in the back and the front is heavy. This could be the successor of the Rampage as well as the Rapidstrike. The Rampage is also made for high ROF which is why it comes with at 25 dart drum. You may have heard reports of Rampage jams. Those jams are uncommon in the Hyperfire. Overall, I would highly recommend this gun and the only flaw is the accuracy.
