The UNSC MA5 is a Mattel blaster that was released in 2016 to promote the Halo franchise.

It comes packaged with two eight dart clips, sixteen Smart Stick Darts, and instructions.


The MA5 is a clip-fed blaster. Its design is based off of the MA5D assault rifle from the Halo franchise. It has storage for an additional clip built into the bottom of its handle.

Color schemes

The UNSC MA5 has been released with the following color schemes:

  • Standard (red, silver, and black)
  • Alternate (blue, silver, black, and orange)

Reloading and firing

To reload the MA5, load up to eight darts in its included Qwikclip. Load the clip into the side of the blaster. Pump the foregrip up to twelve times to prime it. If a twenty dart clip is used instead, pump up to twenty-four times.

Pull the firing trigger to fire a dart, and hold it to fire multiple darts. If darts do not get fired from the clip, it may be slid back in backwards before pumping and firing again.


  • It is assumed to be a spiritual successor to the Rapid Madness.
