The Blast Fire DX500 is a Nerf blaster that was released in 2001 under the Power Nerf series.

It comes packaged with five Micro Darts.


The Blast Fire DX500 features a black, neon green, and orange color scheme. A large orange button is located on top of the blaster for activating its multiple dart "Blast Fire" firing mode. It also has a set of iron sights on top of the blaster.


The Blast Fire DX500 is considered a predecessor to the Hornet AS-6 due to similarities within the firing system.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Blast Fire DX500, load a dart into each of the blaster's five barrels. Pump the blaster five to six times to fully prime it.[2] Push and pull back the neon green back slide to completely prime the blaster.

To fire semi-automatically, pull the trigger. To use "Blast Fire", push the large orange button on top of the blaster.


  • This is the second blaster produced to be able to fire five darts at once, the first being the Lightnin' Blitz.
