The Gear Up Maverick REV-6 is an orange and black variant of the Maverick REV-6 that was released on August 1st, 2011 under the Gear Up sub-series.

It is the first Maverick packaged without Micro Darts; instead, it comes with six Whistler Darts and four Gear Up Whistler Darts. It also comes packaged with an XLR Disc and a code that gives a sneak peak at the Vortex Proton.


Since the Vortex line has been released as of September 2011, the code will not work because the website it gives will go to the Nerf website's home page.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Maverick, the user must first drop the turret by pushing the turret's button located on the left side of the blaster. When the turret is down, the user can place up to three darts in the barrels at a time, a total of six darts are loaded into the barrels. The turret must be placed back up into the blaster's shell; more skilled users can flip the turret up and into place with a quick flick of the wrist.

To prime the blaster, the user must pull slide back and let it return to its original position. Pull the trigger to fire a dart.

The blaster can accept any dart type, including Streamline Darts. Tagger Micro Darts and Whistler Darts jam more frequently.
