I had the same problem too. Try opening it up and looking at some online pictures and compare them, if you still cant find the problem and you have the receipt, take the unit back where you got it from. Look at the springs really closely my maverick was broken due to a spring that slid out of its elevated piece of plastic. I fixed it lubricated some parts and put it back to together. It works great now. :)

Are nerf gun shooters safe for children? My 10 year old son wants one for xmas

Most of the "bullets" in these guns are made out of foam so as far as damage goes they don't cuase any but when shot at point blank there will be a little sting. Just make sure to teach him not to shoot in the face and neck he should be fine.

How many and what type of batteries are required for Nerf Dart Tag Strike Fire Two-Pack?

Wow, this is hands on the dumbest question EVER.

You know, no offense or anything...

Look- this is a manually operated toy.

Unless you or I got the name screwed up, or that picture up above is incorrect...

Oh wait, I just looked at it on Amazon.

Two solutions-


2.) Pull the cocking slide on top of the gun back, after inserting a bullet. Pull the trigger to fire.

That's all!!!

Oh yeah, 1+1=2, in case you didn't know that either.

LOL just kidding!!!

Good luck (idk why)...

Just got the maverick and wont shoot

There are multiple factors in which it will not fire/discharge-

For every problem I suggest you need to open up/unscrew the base plates.

1.) Sometimes nerf factories do not include necessary springs, which are needed to let the trigger lower an orange piece that discharges the plunger system. If not, get one from a nearby hardware store.

2.) Did you mod it? Some people take out the whole air resistors and don't realize that they have created HUGE openings for the air to flow out when pressurized against the bullet.

If you just unpacked it from a reliable source there is not much I can tell you besides the fact that the factoy screwed up and left some internal out.

Try to return it back where it came from and get another.

Factory mistakes like this are usually improbably, so you needn't worry about it when you get another one to replace this one.

Good luck!

Also- if you get a new one, email me at [email protected] for additional info on modding it. From silencing, air resistors, CO2, air pressure, spring rigging, the 'penny mod', and much much more!

I **** it back and then hit the trigger and it won't fire... it rotates the barrel and after about a minute or so of pulling the trigger rapidly it will fire. i want to be able to shoot normally and i did...

The factory must have left out a certain spring I could only explain to you if you've modded it.

Well, I'm going to explain anyway-

When you pull the trigger there is a mechanism is triggers that releases the plunger system, therefore compressing the air and firing the dart out of the turret. The factory (as I said before) left out the spring that makes the part move up or down as the trigger is operated, therefore making the gun malfunction.

My best suggestion- get a spring and add it in (if this is the case). Open up the shells/casing of the gun by unscrewing it apart and find the orange part next to the trigger.

Please email me at [email protected] a picture of the inside of your gun so I can analyze it.

If all else fails, take it back to the store.

Nerf Vulcan won't auto-fire

I had the same problem with two guns out of the box. Turned out that the dividers in the battery tray kept the batteries from touching each other on some brands of batteries. Remove the dividers and should work. You can verify this by measuring the voltage on the two terminals of the battery pack.
