The Agent Bow is a Nerf blaster that was released in fall of 2014[1] under the Secrets & Spies sub-series. It requires two "AA" batteries to operate the integrated red-dot sight.

It comes packaged with a message decoder, a detachable quiver, and three arrows.[2]

Details

The Agent Bow is the first blaster in the Rebelle line, not including the Super Soaker Rebelle blasters, to not fire darts as its ammunition; instead, it features a new-at-the-time arrow-like ammunition type. It also features an integrated red dot sight, which works similarly like the pinpoint sight, and is powered via pulling a trigger located in front of the bow's grip.

Unlike the 2013 Heartbreaker Bow which had a plunger rod attached to its faux bow strings, the Agent Bow actually performs like a real bow; it does not feature any sort of plunger system.

It advertises a firing range of up to eighty-five feet.[1]

History

The Agent Bow was first revealed on January 21, 2014 by blogger UK Nerf.[3] This was a result of their attendance at the 2014 London Toy Fair. Other blasters seen at the event including the SlingFire, Demolisher 2-In-1, and Mega ThunderBow had already been seen prior to the event actually taking place. Speculation initially arose over the information described about the red dot sight, whether it was a legitimate sight or a light beam seen in previous blasters and accessories.

There are two known prototype variations of the Agent Bow. The earliest surfaced on a Brazilian website alongside the leaks of the Spylight, Messenger and Diamondista. This featured a pink, orange, and gray color scheme and featured a different handle mold. The other, the pre-production blaster, was the one that surfaced at the London Toy Fair. There are several differences with this variant, most notably the absence of a transparent piece at the side of the blaster where one can see where the arrow is inserted into the blaster. The arrows also featured a different color scheme. Some mock-ups designs featuring arrows of different neon colours were also produced but scrapped before final production.

It was re-released in 2014 under the Code Red Collection sub-series.

Color schemes

The Agent Bow has been released in the following color schemes:

Value packs

The Code Red Collection re-release of the Agent Bow doubled as a value pack, which includes the Agent Bow and six arrows.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Agent Bow, simply take one arrow and carefully glide it through the opening in the center of the blaster. Grab the fin of the arrow and pull it back with the bow string. Remember to carefully aim the arrow so that it does not catch on the blaster itself upon its exit.

Release the string to fire the arrow.
