Nerf Rayven

April 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 223

The Nerf Rayven is another addition to the "Light it Up" lineup, and joins the Lumitron blaster on the shelves of retailers across the nation.

Recently, it seems that Nerf has gotten really excited about battery-powered blasters. And I can understand why. After all, the faster you can shoot darts, the cooler you are, right?

However, in dart games with my family I have found myself frustrated with the noise these battery-powered guns generate. Sure, you only have to power up the accelerator just before shooting, but it is still noisy and hard to hide from your opponents.

This is a semi-auto, so you do have to pull the trigger once for each dart. In addition to that, there is a little button for the accelerator that you have to hold to activate it before you can shoot the dart. I personally think the 2-button configuration is a little tricky, but I guess the designers had to work with the space they had.

This gun also sucks up a lot of battery juice. It has 4 AA batteries for the accelerator shooting mechanism (and no, it won't shoot without it) and 3 AA batteries for the LED lights that charge the darts.

These lights are the whole key to the "Light it Up" line of Nerf guns. They sit at the top of the 18-dart clip and charge the top dart. It does take about 3 seconds to fully charge the dart, so if you happen to be in the middle of a crazy firefight, you may not get as many glowing darts.

One of the neat things about the gun is its "bullpup" design. I personally enjoy bullpup guns and think they are a lot of fun in close-range fights (which I typically find myself in). If you are looking at the gun for a kid, you might make sure that it is truly small enough for them.

If you are trying to decide if you want to buy a Nerf Rayven, then it really comes down to what you want in a Nerf gun. If you are looking for bare-bones rapid-shooting action then the Rayven probably won't win you over. But, if you really enjoy having a "gadget-factor" to your toys, then the glow-in-the-dark darts are probably going to totally be "your thing".

In the end, it's not about what gun you get, but about making times for family and friends. And yes, keeping score.

NERF! Okay, so I've always enjoyed nerf guns. (You can read more about the Nerf Rayven here.) I pretty much just write about random items that fascinate me. I hope you enjoyed it!
