The Stinging Scarab is a single-fire Nerf blaster that was released in 1996 under the Max Force series.

It comes packaged with three Micro Darts.


As the name implies, it is supposed to resemble a scarab. It has no trigger and is, instead, fired by a plunger using a pull-and-release system. It features a fold-down handle, as well as two short "legs" which double as dart holders.

The Stinging Scarab has wings on the blaster's shell, which are constructed of a translucent red plastic. The wings open up when the plunger rod is pulled. Despite the interesting appearance, the wings do not have any real function on the blaster's performance.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Stinging Scarab, simply insert one dart onto the barrel peg at the front of the blaster. Grip the handle and pull the priming mechanism back to prime the blaster.

Release the mechanism to fire the dart.
