Manual Nerf guns do not require batteries to operate, as they have manual priming and firing mechanisms. However, there are battery powered Nerf blasters available, such as semi-automatic and fully automatic blasters, which do require batteries to function.
The use of batteries allows these blasters to shoot darts at a much faster speed than manual blasters, but they also have the potential for jamming. When using electric nerf guns, it’s important to use high quality batteries that can last for a long time.
Nerf wars are fun to enjoy during family gatherings, birthdays and nerf parties. Despite their incredible popularity, only some know how to use these toys properly to enjoy all they can offer.
Pros of Using Battery Powered Nerf Blasters
Battery powered nerf guns has more advantages over manual blasters. Automatic nerf blasters are more robust, powerful and they shoot mega darts that are long range nerf bullets. If you are participating in a nerf war, using of automatic or semi automatic weapons must be your top priority.
Mega nerf blasters shoot darts at a range of 120-150 feet per second (FPS). Remember to use eye protection and nerf vest while playing with powerful nerf guns, otherwise you can get hurt by getting a shot on your face or any other sensitive part of your body.
Even though Nerf makes an effort to make each battery-operated blaster powerful, it occasionally falls short. However, many electronic Nerf blasters have a more potent punch.
Easy to Operate
Most battery powered blasters have a flywheel trigger just below the firing trigger. When you are ready to shoot, hold the trigger button without pressing down to fire the trigger. This is the easiest method because you do not need to prime before every shot.
Greater Efficiency and Speed
Cons of Using Battery Powered Nerf Blasters
Performance Depends on Battery Power
Batteries are beneficial only when they are fully charged. If you start playing without knowing the battery power, the performance of blaster will decrease. It will reduce the Nerf Gun functionality and firing range.
Jamming Risk Increases
There is undoubtedly a higher chance of jamming while you are firing darts quickly, which might be troublesome if you are in the middle of a match. Ensure your chosen blaster doesn’t have a jamming issue that renders it.
More Blaster Cost
These nerf guns are a bit more costly because they are manufactured in latest technology, also you have to buy the batteries separately.
Blasters become Heavy
Batteries improve the performance of nerf blasters, but they can make the blaster heavy.
The batteries make the guns more dynamic, interactive, and fun. They provide a new element of enjoyability in the game and add an extra dimension of interest to what is already popular sporting equipment.
