The Tyrant is a Buzz Bee blaster that was released in 2015 under the Air Max sub-series.

It comes packaged with a twelve dart clip and twelve XL Distance Darts.


The Tyrant is a large clip-fed blaster that fires XL Distance Darts that are similar to Nerf's Mega Darts. It features a rear sling point.

The Tyrant is cross-compatible with Nerf Mega Darts and the Mega Clip. Due to its power, dart size, and clip capacity, it is a very close competitor to the RotoFury.

It advertises a firing range of up to eighty feet.


The Tyrant was first announced in June of 2015, along with the rest of the Air Max sub-series.[1]

Reloading and firing

To reload the Tyrant, ensure that the priming slide is pulled back, then depress the clip release and retrieve the clip. Place up to twelve XL Distance Darts into the clip, then load the full clip into its well so that it clicks, locking firmly into place. Push the priming slide forward to its original position.

Pull the trigger to fire a dart. Cycle the priming slide back and forth for each subsequent shot until the clip is empty.
