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

It comes packaged with three Mega Darts, three Micro Darts, and a Gear Tooth Arrow.

Details

The Triple Torch was designed to fire three different types of ammunition: Mega Darts, Micro Darts and the unique Gear Tooth Arrow. Each ammo type was fired out of the same muzzle; the blaster did not feature different loading mechanisms such as those used in the SuperMAXX 5000.

The Triple Torch is the smallest blaster in the Mega Blitz line and the only one to fire arrows. Ammunition holders can be found on the side and top of the blaster.

History

At one point in 1998, it was re-released with new stickers of the Nerf logos of the time. [2]

The Triple Torch sold well enough to be listed as a "Perennial Best-Seller" in 2000.[3]

Trivia

  • The Jolt EX-1 looks and operates very similar to the Triple Torch. It is possible that this blaster may have inspired the appearance and design of the Jolt EX-1.
  • This is one of only three blasters to fire three different types of ammunition under the Nerf label, the other two being the SuperMAXX 5000 and the N-Strike Modulus Tri-Strike.
  • The Triple Torch gets its name from its appearance, which resembles a futuristic kitchen torch, along with its ability to use three different ammo types.
