Nerf N-Strike Barricade RV-10
Advantages: quick firing,attractive looking and lots of fun
Disadvantages: broke very quickly and easily, no batteries and only have 10 darts so you have to buy more
The reason I had one of these was because at Christmas 2011 me and my family do a surprise gift were we all buy an untagged present and swap it with each other and this years themes was weapons, I received the Nerf N-strike after we had all finished out dinner and what not we all decided to start playing, it sound silly because I'm the youngest out of the lot of us 19 going on 20 soon so of course we acted very childish but that's what Christmas is all about.
The Nerf N- strike is a motorized semi-auto toy gun made of a sturdy plastic which is suitable for a rough battle. The main colour of the Gun is a bright yellow, it has a black handle with a red trigger and orange parts dotted around as well. The darts that come with this are a thick plastic peach colour but I have seen you can have varied colours which is great if you have the same gun then you can have a different colour for each team This Nerf gun takes 3x AAA batteries which are not included with the gun, you cannot use this with out the batteries because this allows the middle barrel to automatically spin around releasing the darts every time you pull the trigger this allows you to fire your weapons much faster than your opponent giving you a better chance of winning an epic battle. The gun is very lightweight which did leave me questioning the durability of this Nerf N-strike.
How well does it work
To aim, you basically have to just point and shoot as there isn't anything to aim with however it is easy to hit people because they are so big and the darts are pretty small, the darts measure a couple of inches long. This fires out quite fast so you do have to think about if your firing it in someone face and be careful not to get them in the eyes because I can tell you from experience it does hurt a lot. The automatic barrel spins round quite fast taking only a few seconds to get all your darts out, the gun only comes with 6 so you find yourself scrambling on the floor to find your ammo because you get hit and your out. To load up the darts, in the front of the barrel that you can see on the sides are holes, you simply slid you dart in there and turn it around.
Durability and extras
This feels like it's made of a sturdy plastic although is hollow and light weight, I dropped this a few times and it was fine but after at least the tenth time of dropping it during my battle is did give up on me and the orange bit at the front, the hole the darts come out of, that part snapped off, although the gun still worked it did look silly so I decided to sit out the game and sulk because my gun had broken. Although children probably won't treat this gun as rough so it should last longer than an hour or so.
Batteries are not included in this but most of us have batteries lying around the house anyone and this doesn't take up a lot of power so you can be reassured the batteries will last a long time. The batteries make the barrel turn around and also allows the gun to make firing noises which does become very annoying. You don't have to assemble this gun you just take it out the packet and put the batteries in and it's ready This comes with 10 darts already but you can buy packs of 36 darts and if this is for a child you'll find you have to buy a couple of these packets because 10 darts is not enough especially if they get lost often.
Price and availability
You can buy this from anywhere that will stock Nerf guns such as argos, toys r us, rammsdens, tesco and from Amazon. This gun is fairly cheap and on Amazon it was 19.99 but has now been reduced to 11.50 so now is the time to get one before they all run out. I would imagine that it is a little cheaper in places like Tesco.
Overall, the colours make the gun extremely attractive to both children and adults although the downside is when there's tension in the room and you raise your gun, they notice it more because it's so bright so I always got hit first and was out, but to a child they probably wouldn't care about things like that. This is very light weight meaning anyone could play with it with ease however the durability is really bad and broke within the hour of me playing with it although it was rough playing so it would last much longer for someone younger. For 20 you do expect to get the batteries with it but unfortunately you don't, the darts are very easy to put in and the automatic barrel allows a really fast release. I loved playing with this is brought about much fun for my broken family and we really needed a good laugh especially at Christmas, I won many games with this and wish I still had it so I may buy another one now there's a sale on!
