It has twenty functional barrels that can fire all darts in a fully automatic succession. It also has the option of a more accurate semi-automatic mode.
The Rapid Fire AS-20's biggest problems are when used too much or used for a while the O-ring in the pumping system quickly loosens up, so air will escape, which means pumping will become more difficult, because each pump will add air, then that air will be lost. Therefore, it is advisable for users to pump as quickly as possible.
The Rapid Fire AS-20 is considered by many to be the successor of the Wildfire.
It was popular during its release and was believed to be discontinued in 2003. However, in 2005, Hasbro re-released the Rapid Fire as a Toys "R" Us exclusive which remains in stock to this day. In 2010, Target released it as an exclusive in the black and yellow N-Strike color scheme; it was also added back to the Nerf website during that year.
The Rapid Fire can be purchased with the following color schemes:
- Original (red, black, and yellow)
- N-Strike (yellow, black, and orange)
Reloading and firing
To reload the Rapid Fire, load up to twenty darts into the each of the blaster's barrels. The blaster is then pumped and filled with air; about twenty pumps are needed for the blaster to fire at maximum power.
Pull the trigger to fire darts.
