Air Warriors EXTREME blasters have better firing ranges, compared to previous Air Warriors blasters. Blasters within the series have a firing range of up to sixty feet, except for the Panther, which can only fire up to forty-five feet. All blasters in this series are powered by air pressure, something unseen in the competing NerfN-Strike Elite and X-ShotX-Shot Excel lines.
The series was originally called Air Blasters Extreme. It was later renamed to Air Warriors EXTREME in early 2014.
