|First images of the new Dart Tag blasters. Seems Taiwanese love hard floors:)|
Hot on the heels of the new Nerf Swarmfire are some first hand images of two more blasters in the new Dart Tag line from our contacts in Taiwan (who as suggested, will now be called 'Eric' :P ). Now Dart tag blasters traditionally are sans clip, mainly because they use the velcro tipped darts that wouldn't fit and the games do not require huge amounts of ammo/reloading due to the limited duration of the matches. While the new blasters continue to adhere to the 'no clips' rule, it looks like the new Dart Tag line are definitely boasting a higher internal ammo capacity; our original Swarmfire maxed out at 20 automatic rounds and now we're happy to present to you a new 16 round assault blaster and a 6 round side arm.
The larger "Dart Tag 16" (still don't know the official name just yet); holds sixteen dart tag velcro darts and is very similar to the Raider, both aesthetically and functionally as it too boasts slam fire ability. You can see it looks like it will support a stock, but the butt looks different to the Raider's. All that talk about banana clips? Guess it can be done..
The smaller "Dart Tag 6" still holds a decent 6 darts, and looks like it has a similar priming method as to either the Spectre (if it's spring loaded) or the Recon (if it's not),
Neither appear to be battery powered to the relief of more traditional Nerfers, however it appears tactical rails are well and truly out for the new Dart Tag blasters. Both sport the new "Bumblebee" inspired colour schemes which look pretty schmick in my opinion.
We'll let you know more as we know about it..but I admit we're pretty damn excited:)
