Nerf Secret Strike AS-1 Review
The Nerf Secret Strike is a tiny little Nerf gun with a solid amount of firepower for its size.
The packaging on the Secret Strike claims it can shoot up to 30 feet, which is true if you feel like priming ten times. Seeing as I’m impatient, I usually prime about 7 times and shoot closer to 25 feet, which really is remarkable for a tiny little Nerf gun like this.
A lot of people seem to have issues with the Secret Strike not working at all, and I would imagine that almost every one of these problems can be attributed to over pumping. Do *not* exceed ten pumps, or you risk stretching out the bladder. Once that’s done, there’s nothing you can do — your new toy is shot and you’ll need to buy a new one. All pump-priming guns like the Secret Strike and Magstrike have this problem — it’s just natural given the technology, and is in no way a defect. So be careful and you’ll be alright.
I’m not 100% sure, but I think that the N-Strike Secret Strike blaster is the first Nerf gun to come with a belt clip. Now, Nerf, I obviously enjoy your products or I wouldn’t have made this site, but if I saw anyone walking around in a public place with a Secret Strike attached to their belt…well…I’d sneak up behind them, pull mine out of my pocket, and shoot them in the back of the head — because this thing is awesome and the world would be better if everyone had one.
In closing, the Nerf Secret Strike is a fantastic little blaster that you can carry around in your pocket. However, if you’re looking for a meatier gun with more versatility, you might want to give the Raider or Vulcan a try.
