The Vampire Hunter is a Buzz Bee dart blaster that was released in fall of 2014 under the Air Warriors series.

It comes packaged with six Foam Stake Darts.

Details

The Vampire Hunter is the largest of the fall 2014 Buzz Bee blasters. It features an overall design similar to the Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow. The first blaster to use Foam Stake Darts, the Vampire Hunter advertises a range of up to fifty feet. The blaster has a barrel turret that can hold up to six darts that automatically rotates with the pull of the trigger.[2] As an air-powered blaster it relies on pumping to be fired. The pump, located at the back of the blaster, also acts as a built-in stock for the user's shoulder.

Out of the box the blaster requires some assembly. The two bow arms come detached and must be put in place manually. Once inserted into the blaster, these are not removable. There are two bungee cords which attach to hooks at the side of the blaster and, when pumped, the cords extend backwards. When the trigger is pulled the bungee cords are released. While serving nothing performance-related, this gives the blaster its crossbow appearance. A hand rest is located at the bottom of the blaster underneath the bow arms. As well, an aiming device is located at the top of the Vampire Hunter.

History

The Vampire Hunter was trademarked in May of 2014, just two months before the blaster would see its reveal.[3] It would then be revealed in July 2014 when it would be seen in a select amount of stores.[4] It was then revealed as a part of Buzz Bee's fall 2014 line shortly after.[5]

Reloading and firing

To reload the Vampire Hunter, simply insert six darts into the front barrel turret. Pull the pump back until it cannot be pulled back any further and push forward to pump the blaster. Pump the blaster up to six times.[2]

Pull the trigger to fire the blaster.

Trivia

  • Unlike most Buzz Bee blasters, the Vampire Hunter has its own logo. Because of this, when trademarks surfaced for the blaster featuring this logo, some fans speculated it was going to be a new series.[6]
