The Pyragon is a Nerf blaster that was released on August 1, 2012[4] under the Vortex series.

It comes packaged with its forty disc drum, forty orange and white XLR Discs, and instructions.

It is a Toys "R" Us exclusive in Hong Kong.


The Pyragon is the first Vortex blaster that is able to be slam fired. It is compatible with all disc magazines. One tactical rail is located on the top of the blaster. It is also compatible with most shoulder stocks.

The Pyragon has an appearance somewhat similar to the Praxis, Lumitron, and the Revonix360.

The Retaliator shoulder stock is not compatible with this blaster.[5]

Color schemes

The Pyragon has been released with the following color schemes:


  • The name "Pyragon" may have come from the word "paragon" meaning "a person or thing regarded as a model of excellence", which fits this blaster's performance, and the word "pyro", meaning fire. This matches the Pyragon's orange and white color scheme.
  • It has the highest ammunition capacity of any Vortex blaster.
  • When first announced, it was assumed it was a reshelled Praxis. This was proven wrong when more information was released.
