The Ripsaw (also known as the Bombardier in Europe) is a Nerf ball blaster that was released in 1995 under the Nerf Action series.

It comes packaged with three Ballistic Balls.


The Ripsaw's firing mechanism is a manually-powered flywheel located inside the blaster, which makes a great deal of noise. Ballistic Balls are fed through the top of the blaster by means of a tube, which also functions as a ball storage device. The blaster features a large iron sight at the front of it, although it is blocked by the loading tube.


It was re-released in the mid-2000s and was renamed the Buzzsaw. Updated with a quieter spooling wheel and a slightly better firing range, the Buzzsaw is somewhat superior to the Ripsaw, though still overall an average blaster.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Ripsaw, place up to three Ballistic Balls into the top ball feeder.

Pull the back handle back multiple times to spool the flywheels up to a good speed. Pull the trigger to fire a ball.
