The Vagabond is a Nerf blaster that was released on August 1, 2015[1] under the Doomlands 2169 series.

It comes packaged with six Doomlands Darts and instructions.


The Vagabond is a large blaster capable of slam fire. It is loaded directly by the side of the barrel. It has a bigger hole in the muzzle, likely for reducing the chance of the dart hitting the exit of the blaster. It has one tactical rail on the top of the blaster and two strap points: one below the front of the blaster and one at the end of the handle. Like other Doomlands blasters, the Vagabond has clear plastic parts, which show the firing mechanisms.

It is essentially a reshell of the Guardian Crossbow, as they share the same internals and pump action mechanism.

Official description


In June 2015, numerous Nerf blogs reported leaked information about the Vagabond. Initially it was thought that it was a Zombie Strike blaster; however, after asking Hasbro about it, they responded and said they should "wait until San Diego Comic Con" for information. After that, a Gizmodo article[2] shared information about the blaster, and Hasbro followed through with more official information.

Reloading and firing

To load the Vagabond, insert up to six darts in the chamber and pump the blaster to prime it.

Pull the trigger to fire a dart.

To slam fire, hold down the trigger and continuously prime the blaster.
