About this deal

You are supplied with 25 Elite darts, but it will take any Nerf darts, and you'll probably need them. If you’re into NERF warfare of the less subtle persuasion, the Hyperfire is a suitably unsubtle beast that offers a ton of fun. The box had sat for a full day before I got to it, and he couldn’t concentrate on anything until it was opened and set up, but had to wait until I picked up my camera from the motorhome, where I’d forgotten to take it home from, and charged it up. However, while the inner workings boast some excellent engineering and mechanicals, they let down by a tendency to jam, especially with older, more beaten up darts.

Thanks to a battery-powered motordrive and a 25-shot drum magazine, it can spit out up to five foam darts per second. The combination of the quietness and smoothness makes you realize that NERF has really stepped up the engineering a notch.According to specifications, this product proves most recommended to children aged 8 years and older.

The blue plate must be removed first, meaning that the orange plate must be place back into the grey plate first. The “D” batteries are large and comparatively expensive too, so changing them regularly should be budgeted for. Your blaster arrives in a box which is large enough for storage afterwards, there's a pull out drawer and it takes very little time to remove.Loading the magazine is done in the usual NERF manner of, well, just pushing each dart into the top of the mag in the right direction (as indicated by an arrow on the side). One of the biggest disappointments my kids have faced over the years with toys, has been opening a box to find hardly anything inside. The other thing you notice is how much quieter and smoother it is than the older full-auto blasters too. I’m glad they ship it with a 25 short drum, as a blaster that can fire this fast needs all that and more…. However, the Hyperfire doesn’t initially cost as much as you might expect, considering it’s the fastest-firing NERF yet – and the foam-fizzing fun it promises will make that extra expense seem worthwhile.

With non-motorised Nerf blasters you often need hand and finger strength to fire, but the N-Strike elite Hyperfire only requires strength to lift and carry it. Our existing Nerf is teensy in comparison, and the Elite Blaster was in demand when they saw how fast the darts are when the trigger is pressed. The dart it normally sitting in the barrel poking out slightly so I can grab it or sometimes pop a pen down the barrel to move it out. There is another clever piece of design with the NERF N-Strike Elite HyperFire; the flywheels are slanted, or canted.It’s the fastest motorised Nerf dart blaster, unleashing 5 darts per second to rain down a deluge of darts onto targets! Unlike most flywheel blasters, it uses a conveyor system to feed darts into the flywheels, rather than a pusher mechanism. My son is 8 next month, so right at the bottom of the age range, and has absolutely no problem using this toy, and nor does my 6 year old. It also comes with a 25 dart drum, which you will need as you can fire up to five darts per second straight out of the box. We also found that the canted flywheels, while also improving accuracy, seem to help out with both the overall range and the consistency of the distance the darts flew.
