The RipChord is a Nerf blaster that was released in 1998 under the Mega Blitz series.

It comes packaged with five Micro Darts.


The RipChord is a fully-automatic blaster with an unconventional firing mechanism. Instead of a firing trigger or a standard priming mechanism, it features a plastic cord threaded through its internals. This cord has two ends, one coming out of the grip and one coming out of the back of the blaster; spaced out on the cord itself are several bumps. Pulling back on the cord will fire off darts, as the bumps on the cord actuate the firing mechanism.

A front turret holds up to five darts at once. An iron sight above the turret helps with aiming.


The RipChord, alongside the Triple Torch, are the only Mega Blitz blasters to not have their updated 1998 packaging surface yet. It is possible the blaster was not re-released with the updated 1998 packaging at all.

Reloading and firing

To reload the RipChord, load up to five darts in the front turret. Pull down on the end of the cord coming out of the grip in order to ready the blaster for use.

Pull back on the end of the cord coming from the back of the blaster to fire darts.


  • The RipChord appeared in some 1998 catalogs with a red cord, rather than with the black cord found on the actual blaster. The same red cord can also be seen on the back of the blaster's packaging.
