Old Name – new Blaster!
Do not confuse this new blaster with an old green blaster from the Dart Tag series! It may have a similar name, but apart from that, these two blasters have nothing in common. The new Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyperfire puts its old namesake in its place.
The Nerf N-Strike Hyperfire is a masterpiece of modern blaster technology
The blaster carries the term "hyper" in its name because of its hyper-fast rate of fire: no electric blaster was capable of shooting 5 darts per second before. This is made possible by a new dart transportation mechanism consisting of a little conveyor belt that transports the darts between the flywheels.
The conveyor belt also dramatically reduces the noice level compared to blasters such as the Rapidstrike. If you insert a magazine, rev up the motors and pull the trigger, you will only hear a slight humming noise.
Another new technical feature: The Flywheels are canted, meaning they are positioned slightly off-axis. This is designed to give the darts spin and thus increase accuracy. With these innovations, ranges of up to 27m nearly become a minor matter.
The blaster is powered by four large D sized batteries (not included) that are inserted in the shoulder stock. Thus, the blaster is still maneuverable despite the weight.
With high RoF comes high ammo consumption
The Hyperfire comes with a 25 round drum magazine and 25 darts. This is a pretty good package but we recommend having a spare magazine ready for quick reloading. A quick math exercise tells us: With 25 darts in the magazine and a RoF of 5 darts per second the fun is huge but quickly over after five seconds. So for those who want to have the maximum amount of fun in a short time span, the Hyperfire is perfect!
