Nerf maverick

The Maverick REV-6, an example of a revolver.

A revolver (abbreviated as REV with N-Strike number codes) is a type of Nerf blaster that features a revolving cylinder.


Revolvers are a popular style of multi-shot blaster due to the typically low purchase cost and ease of modification. Revolvers are also frequently dual-wieldable (save certain blasters), allowing for the usual problems with priming and reloading, and several models are slam fire capable.

While the original REV blasters were reverse plunger models, modern revolvers are more commonly designed with either a direct plungerflywheel, or string-based priming mechanism. Revolvers are reloaded in one of two ways; direct chamber loading from the front with rotation of the barrel to expose each chamber, or drop-cylinder models which allow the barrel to swing to the side and provide simultaneous access to all chambers.


The main advantage of revolvers is that they are able to accept more types of darts than Clip system blasters, revolvers are also easier to reload, and reloading in a nerf war is less risky because they can be fired faster. Revolvers are also smaller than most types of nerf blasters, which can make them good sidearms. They also jam less than a clip system blaster.


Revolvers lack customization that clip system blasters have. The only revolver blaster that can be attached with a barrel extension and stock attachment point is the Spectre REV-5. Revolvers are usually lower capacity than clip system blasters, which makes them only good for sidearms. If the darts are worn, or not pushed in all the way, revolvers will jam.
