The Vortex Pyragon Blaster by Nerf made it on this year’s ToyXplosion 20 list because, well, it’s one fun and amazing gun. It’s definitely a favorite out of our Nerf gun arsenal. (Wait. What? You don’t have a Nerf Gun arsenal? You definitely should!)
Nerf Vortex Pyragon Blaster Description
It’s time to take your Vortex battling to the next level with the Pyragon blaster. With a 40-Disc drum magazine, the Pyragon blaster is the highest-capacity Vortex blaster yet. Slide the blaster’s Slam Fire handle repeatedly while you hold down the trigger to unleash an all-out multi-disc assault.
The drum magazine works with other magazine-fed Vortex blasters (sold separately), and the blaster’s revolutionary XLR Disc Tech hurls the bright orange Vortex discs an ultra-long distance. Attach Tactical Rail accessories (sold separately) to the tactical rail for awesome upgrades. For the final word in Vortex blaster technology, you need the rapid-fire power of the Pyragon blaster.
What We Thought
As I mentioned, we have quite the collection of Nerf Guns and the Vortex Pyragon is definitely one of our favorites. In fact, we think it just might be the only Vortex gun you need to own, unless you’re a collector of course. But if you’re in the market for a new Nerf gun for Christmas or a Birthday gift, go with the Pyragon.
We’ve played with it a lot and not only does it have some fantastic features, it’s very durable. It’s fun to shoot the discs one at a time, but the rapid fire feature is absolutely awesome. And it does work just as the commercials show. As far as the shooting quality, it’s top of the line. It’s easy to aim and shoot your target (as you’ll see in my video clip below – I was aiming at the camera without realizing it!) The discs have a long range and are durable. This is one reason we prefer the discs as opposed to the darts. They last longer.
If you’re ever invited to a Nerf Gun war, bring the Pyragon. Being able to shoot 40 discs, that don’t jam, is gold when it comes to a Nerf Gun war!
ToyXplosion Demo Video
Here’s a video I shot doing a demo of the Vortex Pyragon. Note to self: don’t aim at the camera.
Okay, so the second time I hit the camera it was because it bounced off the wall and then hit the camera. I can’t win.
Bottom Line – Is This Toy for Your Child?
Do they love Nerf Guns? Then the answer is “YES!”. The great thing about Nerf guns is they target such a wide age range. This Vortex Pyragon will have elementary age to adults having the time of their lives. We declare this a must-own Nerf gun for Nerf Gun enthusiasts and for anyone who has a Nerf Gun on their Holiday wish list.
