The Barbarian is a Buzz Bee blaster that was released in 2017 under the Air Warriors series.

It comes packaged with two twenty dart drums, two drum arms, and forty Long Distance Darts.


The Barbarian is a unique blaster that is powered by a HAMP system, rather than conventional springs, similar to the Side Winder. It features a removable forty dart section that is comprised of two twenty dart drums that rotate together via a gear system. A false trigger is located in the handle. The blaster is instead fired by priming the pump towards the user as quickly as possible. Moving the pump back will rotate the drum. It appears to have a tactical rail on the top.[citation needed]

It advertises a firing range of up to a hundred feet (thirty meters).

Official description


The Barbarian was first shown at the New York Toy Fair, known then as the Blizzard. The Blizzard had black drums instead of the current model's orange drums.

The Barbarian released in 2017 as the Double Drum, with a less powerful firing range. It also had a re-release that same year under the Adventure Force brand as the Decimator. Both these variants do away with the tactical rail at the top.[citation needed]

It was re-released in 2021 with a new dark blue color scheme.

Color schemes

  • Blue, white, black, and orange
  • Blue, black, green, and orange
