Nerf N-Strike Elite Mega Cycloneshock Review

At long last, the review you all waited for is here.After rigorous testing, including tedious photo sessions and editing, I finally got time to write a review of the Cycloneshock. Being a really sought after blaster for people, I wanted this review to be as honest as possible, even though I was very excited for this blaster.Now, after shooting it about a thousand times, I think I’m ready to give a formal review of the blaster!

The Box

10962064_10202666222250535_1578178700_n

The box is a pretty standard open faced box we’ve seen recently from Nerf. It comes packaged with 6 Mega darts and an instruction sheet. This advertising tactic is working great for Hasbro, as the buyers can see the blaster before buying it, and it saves cardboard too!

First Impression and Aesthetics

edited 1

When you hold the blaster in your hands, it just feels electric. It has a very solid construction,bold lines, faux rivets, digital camo and most importantly, a very clean and appeasing paintjob. And that is not mentioning the sheer size of the blaster! The real head turner for this blaster is its unbelievably large but perfectly balanced proportions,and the rest of the subtle details and the paintjob just fall in to create a big, intimidating blaster. The grip is very solid and has a nice two-one colouring, and the handrail beneath the grip does not cause problems for bigger hands at all. To further add to its huge appeal,there’s a handgrip below the turret to aid two-handed use. It’s big, it’s red, and it’s gorgeous. What else do you need?

Moving on to the functioning parts, the trigger is pretty responsive, just like anything you would expect out of a springer, the cylinder is well designed and holds darts tightly enough to make a good seal. The priming handle, just like everything else,is huge. I compared it to my Alpha Trooper’s priming handle, and its larger than that. It has one tactical rail on top and surprisingly, no sling attachment points. Whether Nerf wants people to interpret it as more of a take-one-and-go-to-town type of blaster, I’m not entirely sure of that, and i have nothing to say about it either; talk about mixed feelings,right?

Reloading and Use

edited 2

This is where things start to get interesting, both in good and not-so-good ways. Using the blaster is as simple as it gets. Simply insert the darts in the turret and prime the bad boy. No flip-the-barrel-out shenanigans going on here. However, this also means that reloading the blaster is a little bit tedious,and it increases the reloading time just a bit.

Moving on, we come to priming the blaster. Again, the blaster scores much but misses a little. First of all, the draw is pretty long, meaning the blaster has a huge plunger tube inside(which it does), and more importantly, the turret rotates on priming the blaster, meaning that there is a very good seal between the plunger tube and the turret. However, my only gripe with the priming is that about 30% of the initial prime is pretty empty draw, and then suddenly, you run into all the rotation mechs and springs. It might seem like I’m being really picky, as one will not even notice it while priming it quickly, but the fault is there,and it’s really important to mention out all the faults in an honest review. The trigger only disengages the catch, so it operates pretty smoothly.Slam fire function was missing,but owing to the huge draw,it would seem pretty impractical anyway.

Performance

No matter how good a blaster looks, or how easy it is to operate, in the end, it all comes down to how well it performs. And fortunately, the Cycloneshock hits the mark fair and square.

For testing, I use my 30 ft indoor facility(my hallway) to note accuracy by eliminating all outside variables such as wind, temperature and humidity. For range and actual use, I use my 45 ft outdoor facility(driveway and lawn). The darts I use are lightly used Mega darts mixed with the new ones that came with the blaster.All outdoor tests were done on a sunny day, the temperature being 28 degrees celsius and no wind to talk about.

In terms of range, the Cycloneshock literally shocked me beyond consideration(see what I did there?). I was firing flat from shoulder height, and the first shot went completely straight and hit the opposite wall. Shots going beyond the 45 ft mark usually arc in midair, but this one didn’t. Thinking it was a ringer, I continued the testing, but the Cycloneshock continued to belt out shots(with just a little arc) that were consistently going beyond the 45 ft mark parallel-to-ground! No doubt, I had to change my location and moved to a field where the Cycloneshock got a chance to shock me even more! Parallel to ground, I recorded shots averaging at about 60 feet, with the upper ones going upto 66-67 feet, and the lower ones falling in the 51-52 feet range.Next, I fired shots giving the blaster an arc of roughly 30 degrees, and boy was I in for a surprise. Shots whistled through the air, all of them landing beyond the 60 ft mark, with the top shot being an astonishing 82 feet, and averaging at about 73 feet, and the lowest one at 61 feet. However, accuracy was compromised at the price of range, with shots veering wildly to the left or right, or sometimes just taking a sudden drop. Nonetheless, I was very impressed by the blaster’s consistent and superb range.

Now, after hearing so much praise for the blaster,the last thing you expect is bad accuracy. This has been the Achilles heel for many performance blasters, but fortunately, the Cycloneshock survives the scare by the skin of the teeth. Mega darts are not the most accurate darts out there, but they’re not too bad. They have a higher inertial mass compared to Elite darts and their tips are a tad bit more well balanced. Given this, the Cycloneshock  proves its mettle despite being paired with a fairly inaccurate dart. From 25-30 ft, it gets dart groupings of about 12 inches fired flat. At this distance, most of the blasters like the Retaliator and the Alpha Troopper CS-12 start to get a drop and fall out of the competition. Having said that, I think it’s safe to say that the Cycloneshock is accurate enough to save your name.

Reliability has become synonymous to Nerf blasters, owing to their rigorous quality controls and precise engineering.However, I ran into a couple of issues with the blaster, something I had not expected at all. One of the dart chambers is a little too tight for the dart to be inserted properly, so I had to squish the dart into the chamber time and again.I thought that maybe it will give a good seal to the dart, but instead, the dart misfired. It ran into the muzzle and was all bent up,so I decided to go easy on it,and inserted the dart just enough for it to fit snugly in the chamber, but this time,owing to the air gap between the plunger and the dart, it misfired again. As the darts got more used,they became a softer than before, and these problems stopped. However,when I fast fired the blaster, that chamber misfired again, this time spitting out the dart just enough to fall out of the muzzle,and this happened to me every time I used brand new or lightly used darts.However, I might have a blaster that has a kink.

Opinion

My overall opinion for the blaster is very high. It looks very good, it shoots very far, and it shoots very fast. It’s the most aggressively designed pistol on the market right now,and it redefines the Mega series completely.It might not be very accurate, but as long as you’re playing Nerf for fun, no matter if it’s inside in the office or outside in the park,the Cycloneshock never fails to impress! Go for it if you find it!

Nerf Thunderblast leaked on Baidu

China is upto it again.Leaking new blasters.Not that we appreciate it,though.The latest blaster leaked is the Nerf Thunderblast,which is basically a Demolisher missile launcher with a stock.Here it is!

Credits to Rob from SBNC.Check out his blog here-southernbrisbanenerfclub.blogspot.com.au

When I first saw it,I seriously thought that someone did the usual missile launcher removal mod,integrated a modified Demolisher stock,and added a raider pump handle to make things more ergonomic.But turns out,it is an actual Nerf blaster!

The absence of a trigger really disappoints me,because it means it fires just like the Demolisher’s counterpart,with a HAMP style plunger system,and that means accuracy and range will be garbage.Also,the colours seem really conflicting.Still,it is a nifty design,and Nerf seems to be taking some lessons from the modders.I don’t see any practical use,as it needs a completely different kind of ammo,but i’m pretty sure modders will be adding air tanks and triggers to it,perhaps even rebarreling it to fire darts.Let’s see if we get any official info on it.

Ciao

2015 Blaster Info

More love to Nerf,because yet another blaster,this time from the Zombie Strike line,has made an appearance.Say hello to the Doominator!

Zombie_Strike_Doominator

size

This thing screams attention.I mean,look at this thing,it looks exactly what a gun would look like in a dystopian world,cobbled up from machine parts.It looks like a Flipfury on some serious steroids.4 six dart turrets,Pump action firing.Whoa,looks like Nerf is going to completely kill the competition this year.

Also accompanying is the Mega blaster everybody was waiting for.Enter,the Rotofury!

Nerf-Mega-RotoFury-Berzerker-High-Res

Roto

The Bezerker we saw in the product leak has now been renamed as the Rotofury,and it looks such a monster! 10 dart slam fire and 90ft distances,this thing will surely take the Mega line to new heights.her is a product description-

NERF MEGA RotoFury Blaster

Supersize your NERF battles and dominate the field with the highest capacity MEGA blaster ever!

Wait,it isn’t over yet,cause the best is always saved for last.Proud to present before you,The Modulus.

Modulus High Res

MyLastDart,a blog based in the UK,introduced to the world this king-of-tacticool blaster.This is its product description-

Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10 Blaster

SRP: 49:99
Available: Autumn 2015
Achieve unprecedented levels of CUSTOMISATION with the Nerf N-Strike Modulus ECS-10. Giving fans both the versatility and performance they crave, the modulus ECS-10 features motorised blasting and can be configured in over 30 ways to make any Nerf MISSION or SHOT possible.

Thanks to MyLastDart for the news,check out the blog here-www.mylastdart.com

ECS….hmmm…..like the Stampede? It will be nice to have a motorized direct plunger blaster in the Elite line,but the Stampede takes 6 D batteries,how will a blaster so customizable carry that heft? Let’s not forget that the Cam ECS-12 also carries that code,so are we looking at a semi-auto blaster?

One thing’s for sure,this year,Nerf is really hitting back at the competition,and BoomCo needs to step it up if it wants to say in business.

Mega Thunderbow Revealed, to be released with Slingfire in Fall ’14.

New blasters are coming for this fall, as Hasbro unveils a new Mega blaster,the Thunderbow. I must say,it looks pretty impressive,given the fact that you don’t have to reload after every shot.Five aligned mega darts make it pretty big though,but the 100 ft ranges are getting some attention.

The official description from Hasbro –

NERF N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW Toy
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $39.99/Available: Fall 14)
Awesome NERF MEGA performance transitions from blaster to bow with the addition of the N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW toy. The bow’s dynamic arms and traditional pull back system can fire five NERF MEGA whistler darts in a row up to an amazing 100 feet. Includes 10 MEGA Whistler darts and holds up to five NERF MEGA darts at a time. Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyshop.com

How it fires is open to speculation, because the bowstring isn’t connected to the plunger,and there is no trigger to be seen around,so i think that there is an internal trigger,which fires off the plunger when enough force is built on pulling the bowstring.Anyway,thats my theory. It will perhaps appear in the London Toy Fair this January.It looks like it uses the same intelligent air flow like the Crossfire bow.
