Seems s0meone got a Rough Cut early and got to try it out. Pretty wild that they already have it– probably the children of a Hasbro employee if I had to guess.
The big thing here? It uses slam fire. Seriously, 2 darts per shot with slam fire? Crazy.
This was spotted on Baidu(Link), apparently it’s the Nerf Triad’s internals.
Basically, what it shows us 100% is that the Triad has three direct plungers, and doesn’t just shoot one dart.
Though, the question is, how does it shoot them? Does it shoot one at a time with each trigger pull before needing primed again? Or does it shoot two and then one(as reported by Nerf Mods and Reviews)? Or even all three? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Either way, it looks like it should get some decent range with that extended plunger system, and it’s evidently not just a Jolt with some dart holders.
So here it is folks, finally. The Ruff cut– it comes from the Tumblr blog of a Nerf actor. Head’s up from Urban Taggers though!
Apparently, it’s the new barrel break, but it’s a barrel break on steroids. Let’s take a good look at it quick-
- It has eight barrels, and based off of a leaked website roster, it shoots 2 darts at a time, with four pairs– you can shoot 2 darts 4 times.
- It has a pump action cocking handle, I’d love if it was slamfire, but we’ll have to see how that one works out.
- Same grip as a barrel break– clear design cues here
- Tactical rail across the top
It’s not the clip system barrel break I was looking for, but man, it’s awesome.
Here’s another photo, which shows a display case and what looks to be the Triad, Strong Arm, and Strife.
Thanks to Urban Taggers for finding these.
So on the heels of last week’s spotting, now it seems someone has their hands on one.
Here’s the front– apparently the red dot sight’s lens is a circle now. Kinda odd, but it works. It also confirms that it has the two dart holders again. Pretty nifty how well the dart holders blend into the body from the side.
The contrast between the two is sharp. Although it’s a bulkier blaster, it apparently has been compacted in a bit to save as much room as possible. The handle is shorter, the dart holders blend in to the blast, and the tactical rail is at the dead back end, which makes more room for other things to be in with it.
Seemingly, they completely reshelled it, and man it looks tough.
Here’s a picture of the red dot sight in use. It seems to have some sort of reticle around it– which is awesome.
Now this got me– it lights up and looks like a beast from the sides. The RDS chamber has two open slots, seemingly to adjust the beam, but it also makes it glow from the side.
So, yep, this thing deserves to be called the ‘Firestrike’ with that look.
