It is a Target exclusive in the United States and a Walmart exclusive in Canada.
The Desolator is a clip system flywheel-powered blaster, with semi-automatic function. It has two tactical rail above the blaster and two sling points: one in the handle and another one under the muzzle. It also has clear plastic parts, allowing the user to see some of the blaster's internal workings.
Despite being compatible with other clip system clips (such as a Buzz Bee eight dart clip), the acceleration trigger won't work when the clip is normally inserted. This is due to how loaded ammunition lines up with the blaster's acceleration trigger safety lock; pushing the clip firmly in place will help avoid this issue.
The Desolator was announced at the 2016 New York Toy Fair, along with the Longarm.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Desolator, load up to ten darts in the included clip. Load the clip into the blaster and turn on the blaster. Pull the acceleration trigger to rev up the flywheels.
Pull the firing trigger to fire a dart.
- The Desolator is technically the first motorized Doomlands 2169 blaster.
- The Desolator is generally compared to the N-Strike Elite Stryfe . Generally, the Desolator is more ergonomic than the Stryfe, despite the smaller trigger handle, and has a smoother triggerpull.
