Inside every man is a boy who just wants a better Nerf gun. Their new iteration may be the one to get you buying again.
Nerf’s newest gun claims to fire 100 feet and was tested by Popular Science in an exclusive report.
In order to increase the new Nerf N-Strike Elite Centurion’s ballistic velocity to the 55 MPH required to shoot a dart, the Nerf team had to reinvent how it structured its funs.
The toy gun’s launch mechanism has been superpowered to accomodate the need for speed; a spring-loaded piston fires out Nerf’s newest missiles the 100 feet just as promised.
The gun is 40 inches in length so it’s probably a bit unwieldy to casually pull out and blast.
The N-Strike Elite Centurion retails for $49.99 and will be on store shelves this fall. You can view more on Popular Science’s super important test here.
