Will NERF Dominate the Gel Blaster Wars with the NERF GelFire Mythic? Find out how good/bad it is.

NERF just released their first gel blaster, the NERF Gelfire Mythic, and it's about nerfing time. NERF's foam dart and ball launchers are their claim to fame and have a huge following.


Gel Blasters that shoot water bead-like gel balls fill a gap between NERF and airsoft. Both have their pros and cons, but the main advantage of gel blasters is that you can shoot 1000's or rounds of ammo, and there's no clean up afterward.


NERF Gelfire Mythic proves to be a very nicely built and well-designed blaster, but it lacks in power and therefore range. It is best suited for CQB (close-quarters battle) where stealth and strategy is more important than range. It feels much more solid, better quality and feature-rich than competitors of the same size and style. But it also costs as much or more than much stronger rifle blasters like Splatrball SRB400 and SRB1200 or UNLOCX pistols.

WHAT'S INSIDE NERF MYTHIC GEL BLASTER

I tear down the NERF Mythic to see what's inside, and how it's made. This is also a good take apart and put-back-together guide if you need to repair anything.




NERF MYTHIC GEL BLASTER MODS


▼ Stronger Spring

The NERF PRO GELFIRE MYTHIC gel blaster is well-built and solid, but it's lacking in punch. The stock velocity is a bit low at about 150 FPS, when the Gel Blaster SURGE Gen 2/3 achieves 175 FPS. The GB SURGE Gen 2/3 uses a spring that is about 1.5 coils longer to achieve the higher speed. By swapping the stock NERF spring with the GB SURGE spring, the NERF MYTHIC blaster can hit 180 FPS with no issues. Since the gears inside the NERF MYTHIC are slightly larger than the standard gears in most pistol-style gel blasters, the durability of the gearbox with the stronger spring should not be an issue.




▼ Hop-Up

The NERF Pro Mythic gel blaster only shoots at about 150fps (stock), but it still benefits from a hop-up for both better range and accuracy. The hop-up attaches to the end of the barrel and gives the gel ball a backspin which makes it shoot further and usually straighter.

▼ Picatinny Rail Mounts (offset to avoid hopper)

There is a rail mount on the NERF Mythic gel blaster, but it is directly in front of the gel ball hopper. This makes it difficult to mount anything. Someone has created these offset mounts to move the rail off to the side at an angle.
