The Red Strike Vulcan EBF-25 is a repainted Vulcan EBF-25 that was released in 2009 under the Red Strike series. Nerfers commonly refer to this as the Vulcan Magma after the similar fictional blaster of the same name. It requires 6 "D" batteries to power its automatic firing mode.
Like the other Red Strike series blasters, this blaster is coveted by collectors. This could be because of the red color scheme or the fact that they were released and sold only for a specific sale.
Original review here.
|Red Strike Vulcan EBF-25|
|Firing range||10/10||The Red Strike Vulcan oddly fires distances of about thirty-five to forty feet, noticeably more than the original and newer Vulcan color schemes. It is also noted that using Duracell or other high-quality batteries will increase the fire rate and distance.|
|Accuracy||9/10||The Red Strike Vulcan has good accuracy for what it is. Its fire rate improves its performance, and gives it a special niche that no other blaster can fill.|
|Reliability||6/10||This blaster's low reliability is due to its complicated firing. The belts feed through a somewhat weak motor through the plunger. Belts have a two-pronged air restrictor, probably to lower the chance of misfire. Reliability is almost solely dependent on the wielder; if darts are not packed all the way in the belt, they do not get enough air flow and will stop midway up the barrel. With the top barrel notch, it is even more important to do so, so darts do not jam.|
|Rate of fire||10/10||This blaster fires approximately three darts per second unmodified and with fresh batteries. If different quality batteries are used, the fire rate will vary. These variations are very significant, and one might consider buying better batteries, rather than a new blaster. Batteries in the the Red Strike Vulcan will deliver the same rate of fire most of the time, regardless of the batteries' remaining life.|
|Capacity||10/10||This blaster holds up to twenty-five darts at a time in its provided twenty-five dart belt.|
|9/10||The Red Strike Vulcan performs better than other Vulcans, and it is unknown why. The Red Strike Vulcan, while being a collector's item, also sees a performance jump, which makes it more coveted compared to other variants of the Vulcan.|
