What It Is
What It Is
The iconic Nerf brand from Hasbro gets a new blaster experience with the Vortex line. Vortex offers Nerf fans the latest in blaster technology and performance, along with a greater blaster variety. The Nerf Vortex line shoots plastic discs and uses something Hasbro calls XLR Technology, or extra long-range disc technology, that hurls discs super long distances.
One of the first blasters in the Vortex line is the Nitron. This is a fully automatic clip-fed disc blaster. It features a removable clip that can hold up to 20 discs, an electronic targeting scope accessory, and a front handle to steady shots. The Nitron is also compatible with the Nerf Tactical Rail System and most Nerf N-Strike Mission Kit accessories, each sold separately. It comes with 20 discs, and more discs can be purchased separately.
Why It’s Fun
Hasbro has taken a classic boys' play pattern and given it a new twist. Instead of foam darts, the Vortex blasters shoot plastic discs. Boys will like the long-distance and continuous shooting and how easy it is to load and use the Nitron blaster.
Who It’s For
The Nitron blaster is for ages 8 and up.
What to Be Aware of
Only use the discs designed for the Vortex blasters. Don't aim the discs at people's faces or eyes.
The Nitron blaster requires six C batteries, which are not included. The electronic targeting scope accessory requires two AAA batteries, which are not included.
