Nerf Rival Artemis Review

The Nerf Rival Artemis is my first Rival, and it is a good first impression. It comes with 30 balls for its integrated mags but can hold more.

The Artemis is harder to cock than a dart blaster. I’m guessing it has something to do with being a Rival. I expect the same to be with Atlas, and I know it is with Apollo. My friend has one. It has slam-fire, but I cannot do it well. The one tactical rail can fit the normal N-Strike accessories but not as well as the tactical rails on the normal Nerf guns. Its range is about 75 feet. That is supposedly how far the Elites fire, but they only get about 60-70 feet. This has good accuracy like all Rivals. It could probably be a sniper, too. Artemis is very comfortable to hold but has a slightly hard trigger pull. Also, the barrels rotate.

As far as I can tell, it has two problems:

  1. Sometimes it doesn’t fire, and the next time it fires two balls at once.
  2. The balls are hard to remove without shooting.

Artemis uses a slide on the magazines to put in the balls. The holes are little so the balls don’t fall out if you shake it upside down.

I really like the Artemis and will probably be getting Nemesis once it is released.

Nerf N-Strike Mega Mastodon Review

Mega Mastodon is an awesome gun! First off, this thing is huge. It measures 31 inches long, 1 foot tall and 8 inches wide. I don’t know if it was necessary to make it so large. The area in front of the drum probably did not have to be so big. The battery compartment is quite large which brings me to my next point.

Mega Mastodon requires six D batteries to operate. That also adds to the expense of the gun. Being so big, the strap is somewhat necessary. I thought the strap was a just to make it seem bigger so more people would buy it. However, the strap is a good addition because it is heavy.

For the base I built out of boxes, I use Mega Mastodon as a turret to defend the base. I just run behind the wall and fire Mega Mastodon which is sitting on the central box.

Performance-wise, Mega Mastodon is great. It shoots quite far and is also the biggest and heaviest Nerf gun. The Vulcan previously held those records. It is not as long as the Centurion, though. I like it very well, despite its size, and I would recommend it for anybody who wants a big machine gun.

Sneak Peak of Unreleased Nerf Guns

Before reading this, please note that these are not unreleased. These guns were released in 2017. I noticed that a lot of people were reading this after they were released and I wanted to update it.

We have already seen Nerf’s spring 2017 blasters. They are mostly sidearms like the Negotiator. What about the rifles and machine guns? Some of those unreleased Nerf Guns are the:

  1. Rival Nemesis
  2. Accustrike Raptorstrike
  3. Mega Twinshock
  4. Modulus Regulator
  5. Zombie Strike Dreadbolt
  6. Doomlands Judge
  7. Alien Menace Voidcaster
  8. First Order Stormtrooper Blaster
  9. Rebelle Combow

 

The Nemesis

 

First, we have Nemesis. By far, the best unreleased Nerf gun is Nemesis. It is a machine gun. There is also a 100 round hopper which might be able to hold more than 100 balls.

 

 

The Raptorstrike

 

Next, we have the Raptorstrike. The only thing it lacks is a scope. It has a flip up sight instead. This comes with two six dart clips, a foldable bipod, and eighteen AccuStrike darts. It has room for an extra clip in the stock. All of the other snipers are not as good. Centurion jams and Longstrike and Longshot are old. Also, will all the Elite AccuStrikes be named after birds? Alphahawk, Falconfire, and Raptorstrike

 

 

The Twinshock

 

This one is like a Mega Roughcut 2×5 with a handle prime. It fires 2 darts at once just like the Roughcut. I don’t want this, but I’m sure it’s good. I think the internals will be similar to a Rough Cut.

 

 

The Regulator

 

This Modulus has 3 fire options: 1 shot, 3 shots or continuous fire. It uses a switch like Dual-Strike and comes with two barrels that have reverse tactical rails.

 

The Dreadbolt

Not much is known about this, but it is the first modern Nerf gun that is not a Rebelle to fire arrows. It comes with five arrows and a removable scope.

 

The Judge

 

I would probably buy this if it wasn’t for the fact it is so much bigger than necessary. It fires three darts at once with ten shots before you run out. The appearance of The Judge looks like it has slam-fire.

 

The Voidcaster

This appears to be an oddly styled pistol. I can’t say it would be a good backup. It is bigger than most pistols because of it’s odd styling. It can hold eight darts.

The First Order Stormtrooper Blaster

The third stormtrooper blaster lately. This one uses flywheels and sideloads like the stormtrooper deluxe blaster.

Nerf Rebelle Combow

The Combow is an interesting gun. It has a blaster and a bow. When connected, they fire two darts at once. You can see they use AccuStrike darts like RaptorStrike.

Those are the unreleased Nerf guns of 2017.

 

 

 

 

Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike Review

This is a review of the Nerf Modulus Tri-Strike. I would overall rate it  4 ½ out of 5 stars because the stock and the missile launcher are connected. I did order the Nerf Retaliator for a stock.

I don’t like that because I want a scope for accuracy. You can buy separate parts.

B00TDP7RSG

 I have tested the accuracy and rated it 85%.  It would be good in a battle because that was against small targets. The accuracy against large targets would estimate 97% with the Elite darts.

Fighting my sister with the Tri-Strike

The Mega darts have a 60% accuracy overall. The missile does not shoot very far. The blaster can come apart into 4 pieces (Including the stock and missile launcher as one.)

The Tri-Strike in its separate parts

The Tri-Strike comes with a ten-dart clip, ten Elite darts four Megas, and one missile. I would recommend buying extra missiles because it only comes with one. If you plan to use the missile, you will definitely need the refill. The refill comes with three missiles and is right here.

With all of the pieces that come with the Tri-Strike, the gun will weigh about 4 pounds. I can use it just fine, and I am 10-years old. I would recommend it for 8+. I did get a bullet stuck in it. I think since it is a Modulus there has to be some cons to it. Also, using the jam door requires you to cock the gun back. I might just be handling it, roughly, though. It has jammed multiple times but none as hard as that time. I can’t get it out. My friend at The Paper Master fixed it. Overall, I think it is a good gun despite the fact it was jammed.
