The Nitron is an electronic automatic blaster; it uses a flywheel system similar to the Barricade RV-10 and the Hail-Fire to fire discs. Built into the front of the blaster is a foregrip, which is unmovable. On top of the blaster is a tactical rail, where the scope is normally placed. It can hold another ten or twenty disc magazine in its integrated shoulder stock. It is considered the flagship of the Vortex series.
To unjam the Nitron, the magazine must first be removed. Then the user must pull back on the disc eject switch on top of the blaster. The jammed disc will then fall out of where the magazine is normally placed.
Reloading and firing
To reload the Nitron, press the clip release button to remove any loaded clips in the blaster. Load up to twenty discs into the provided twenty disc magazine, press the clip release button and load the clip into the blaster.
To fire, hold down the acceleration trigger and wait for the blaster to charge up. To achieve maximum range and maintain that range, the user may need to wait for the flywheels to charge up. Pulling the firing trigger launches the discs.
