REVIEW: Nerf Zombiestrike Doominator

One of the uber blasters we were expecting this year, the Doominator, was recently released in Australia (grey trigger), and I got one!

As you can see, I was quite excited to get my Doominator. That changed.


The blaster is easy enough to assemble. Cylinders 1 and 3 need to be snapped into place. The cylinder advancement lever is heavy and clicks loudly but the mechanism as a whole performed flawlessly when cycling through the cylinders rapidly.


Priming the blaster is easy too. My only complaint is that the priming handle gets too close to the main body of the blaster. Other than that, priming is hassle free. I'm not going to complain about the very short 'stock' because I'm not sure it was meant to be a stock. Looks like one though.


Sounds good so far right? Well, this is the part where that changes. Firing this blaster was disappointing. Even for a watered down grey trigger variant, the darts fell far from the mark, literally. One dart in my test didn't even fire. Oddly enough, the range is brought back up using slamfire. I don't know about you, but I don't use slamfire all that often.


Ultimately this blaster was disappointing. Reduced performance is bad enough but not even meeting that standard is quite bad. At AUD59 you can do a lot better for the same money or even less. The Mega Rotofury is AUD39!


Ultimately, I'd give this blaster a miss. It's likely that the one I got was a dud, but you know what they say about first impressions.


Pros:
1. 24 dart capacity
2. pump grip
3. quality build
4. the green is nice
5. cylinder advancement is reliable

Cons:
1. very poor range (this killed it for me)
2. cylinder advancement is heavy

  1. I'm guessing the poor air seal is a first production error.
    Hopefully hasbro will fix it by Christmas,
    We'll just have to wait to find out.
    Great review, seriously had high hopes for the Doominator.
