Are you a big fan of Nerf guns? Then you will be interested in the Nerf Vulcan. In terms of size, and looks, I think it beats the other current Nerf guns without question. If you are a Nerf collector or just another person who loves to have a war with foam darts, the Vulcan may be something you would want to play with. There are several aspects about it that make it stand out from the rest. Continue reading to find out more.
Because this is a hefty sized toy gun, it features a tripod so that you can set it up and use it like a turret. It can shoot rapidly in multi shot mode, or can shoot one shot at a time in single shot mode. Feeding it the darts is an ammunition belt that can be placed in an ammunition box. The ammunition box can be detached or left on. When you want to hold the gun yourself, there is a carry handle in the front.
I was fortunate enough to be able to buy one of these and try it myself. You can buy it at Wal-Mart, Target, Toys R’ Us and many other stores. If you want to save money you may have better luck finding a more affordable price online. The first thing I noticed is that it is fairly heavy, but not for an adult. The tripod is really nice for when you want to set it down. Shooting it is a pretty awesome experience. You can definitely release a hail storm of darts with it. In my opinion I think it is the coolest looking dart shooting toy gun out there. It is a lot of fun to play with too.
Alas, I was disappointed the first time it jammed on me. It jammed on me a lot. I found out that when you run with it, it can jam. Holding it still is the best way to use it. Compared to the Magstrike. the Vulcan isn’t as fast. I noticed it is fairly heavy. For a kid I can see how this would make it harder to use, but as an adult it isn’t a problem. You can see why they put a tripod on the thing though, because it is nice to set down and use as a turret.
If in the future Hasbro releases another model similar to this one, I hope it doesn’t jam as frequently. Even with the jamming issue, I still think this is one worth buying!
