The Pyragon is a Nerf blaster that was released on August 1, 2012[1] under the Vortex series.

It comes packaged with its forty disc drum, forty orange and white XLR discs, and instructions.

It was a Toys "R" Us exclusive in Hong Kong.


The Pyragon is the first Vortex blaster that is able to slam fire. It is compatible with all disc magazines. One tactical rail is located on the top of the blaster. It is also compatible with shoulder stocks.

The Pyragon has an appearance somewhat similar to the Praxis and Lumitron.

Color schemes

The Pyragon has been released with the following color schemes:

  • Vortex alternate (white, gray, and orange)
  • Upcoming re-release (white, gray, orange, and green)

Reloading and firing

To reload the Pyragon, press the magazine release button to remove any loaded drums in the blaster. Load up to forty discs into the packaged forty disc drum. Pull the slam fire handle back, press the magazine release button and load in the packaged forty disc drum. Push the slam fire handle forward to prime the blaster.

Pull the trigger once to fire a disc.

To slam fire, pull and hold down the trigger and move the slam fire handle back and forward repeatedly.

The official Pyragon commercial.
  • The name "Pyragon" may have come from the word "paragon" meaning "a person or thing regarded as a model of excellence", which fits this blaster's performance, and the word "pyro", meaning fire. This matches the Pyragon's orange and white color scheme.
  • It has the highest capacity ammo storage for any Vortex blaster and the first drum to use XLR discs.
  • When first announced, it was assumed it was a reshelled Praxis. This was proved wrong when more information was released.
  • The Retaliator shoulder stock is not compatible with this blaster.[2]
  • It is possible to load a total of forty-two discs without modification or damage by loading and chambering one disc, ejecting the drum, then loading the drum again with forty-one discs.
