The Magnus is a Nerf N-Strike Elite Mega blaster released on January 14, 2014 that is able to hold up to 3 Elite Mega Darts. It is a direct plunger blaster, and is actually quite heavy, despite the fact that it only holds three darts. It has a range of 85 feet if angled. It is a very powerful blaster. It is also extremely accurate, and due to it being a direct plunger blaster, is easy to modify; with modifications usually making the blaster fire Micro Darts or increasing its capacity by allowing it to fit a MCS 6-Dart Clip. It was later on inducted into the Z.E.D. Squad line of blasters in a two-pack, but retaining its original name.
It has a black pistol grip with grey accents, with the N-Strike Elite logo seen on the handle. It has a red body, along with a grey or orange trigger depending on whether one's country has dart blaster safety regulations. A big "MEGA" is seen on the body, and on the top, an orange breech can be seen. When the slide is pulled back, a small platform for holding three darts in an integrated clip raises up and feeds the dart into the breech.
Internals Editdirect plunger system blaster. It consists of a direct plunger, firing trigger, V-breech, catch, catch spring, ammo platform and ammo platform spring. These parts work very reliably.
Position in Theme Edit
The Magnus acts as the pistol in the line. It acts as a rather efficient sidearm, but it could also act as a primary, but one would have to frequently stock up on ammunition because of its low capacity of 3 Elite Mega Darts. It could also very well act as a poor-man's sniper rifle, due to its amazing accuracy when compared to the Centurion.
Blaster Co-relation Edit
There are not too many blasters that one can compare the Magnus to; the nearest blaster one could compare it to is the Recon CS-6, however the latter uses a clip instead of an integrated magazine.
Like most other blasters, the Magnus has faults. One of the major faults is the range still fluctuates, similar to the Centurion. Another problem is that its capacity of only three darts is a little bit small for a large blaster like this.
How to Fire Edit
Step 1 - Pull the slide backwards.
Step 2 - Load up to 3 Elite Mega Darts into the top of the blaster.
Step 3 - Push the slide back to its original position.
Step 4 - Pull the trigger to fire a dart.
- It seems to resemble a Nerf version of a real life Desert Eagle.
