The Warthog is a Nerf blaster that was released in 1995 under the Max Force series.

It comes packaged with four Micro Darts.


The Warthog is a small, single-fire Nerf blaster whose main feature is its over-under twin barrels, which simultaneously shoot Micro Darts when the trigger is pulled. This blaster was highly praised due to its accuracy, power, high range (at the time), and being light weight, compact, and easy to use. Many regard it as the best blaster under the Max Force lineup. The bottom of the grip housed a pair of holes for two extra darts.

The Warthog features a brown and grey color scheme. Curving down from the hilt and priming rod to the muzzle is what looks like a warthog's lower jaw, adorned with jagged, white fangs. The blaster is covered in small aesthetic "warts"- some are brown, some grey, and some orange. On the back, above the firing trigger on either sides, are orange gears that are half-covered by the previously mentioned jaw design, resembling angry eyes. The front of the blaster has wavy "wrinkles" on the top of the barrel, and the muzzle resembles an orange pig snout, with the two holes for the darts resembling "nostrils."

Reloading and firing

To reload the blaster, push a Micro Dart into each of the barrels on the front of the blaster. Make sure they are pushed as far into the blaster as possible, or else the darts may not fire correctly. Pull back the grey grip on the back to prime both barrels.

Pull the white trigger to fire both the darts.


  • This blaster is often confused with the Razorbeast, due to the latter's former name, the Razorback (an animal which this blaster also resembles).
  • Micro Darts have a tendency to fall out of the holes on the bottom if the blaster is jerked too suddenly or tossed around.
    • Modern Micro Darts (including Whistlers and Elite Darts) do not fall out of the bottom, but are very difficult to load into the blaster due to how much smaller the inner hole of the dart is. This creates a better seal, however, and they can be fired with slightly increased range.
