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.
