The SuperMAXX 5000 is an Nerf blaster that was released in 1998 under the SuperMAXX series.

It comes packaged with one Ballistic Ball, three SuperMAXX Darts, and three arrows.

Details

The SuperMAXX 5000 was designed to be efficient, as it fires three types of ammunition: Ballistic Balls, SuperMAXX Darts, and arrows, as well as all derivatives of the above three types.

The blaster has built-in storage for two darts and two arrows.

The SuperMAXX Dart function is similar to that of the SuperMAXX 750's: a single-fire, one-shot air-powered blaster. The one notable difference is the addition of ammunition holders, which the remainder of the line at the time lacked.

The arrow function was the same function as the SuperMAXX Dart function, as the arrows were slid over the same barrel the SuperMAXX Darts were placed in.

The Ballistic Ball function uses a separate piece, which is attached to the front of the blaster. This operates similar to any typical ball blaster, although it is air-powered, and due to this, offers better performances than other ball blasters of the time.

History

This blaster was initially released under the Larami SuperMAXX line as the SuperMAXX 2000 and in the SuperMAXX Xtreme series as the SuperMAXX Xtreme 5000, in addition to the Air Master Xtreme line as the Air Master Xtreme 5000.

This was the last blaster to be released using 11" arrows.

It never received the update that the SuperMAXX 250, SuperMAXX 750, SuperMAXX 1500 and SuperMAXX 3000 received.

Reloading and firing

To reload the SuperMAXX 5000, simply select and attach a barrel and load either one arrow/dart onto the first barrel, or load three balls into the second barrel. Pump the blaster about five times to fire a ball or arrow, and/or pump the blaster three times to fire a dart.

Pull the trigger to fire the blaster.

Trivia

  • If modified to shoot Micro Darts, this blaster can reach incredible firing ranges of around a hundred and twenty feet.[citation needed]
  • It was commonly banned in wars at the time of its release due to its incredible firing strength when modified.
  • This blaster is among very few blasters to be able to shoot three different ammunition types, the only other two being the Mega Blitz Triple Torch and the N-Strike Modulus Tri-Strike.
  • The ball blaster function of the SuperMAXX 5000 is somewhat similar to the attachment used with the 1994 Switchfire.
