Nerf Vortex Vigilon - Review!

Next up in the new Nerf Vortex Series is the Nerf Vortex Vigilon!

The Nerf Vigilon uses a spring powered launcher mechanism that fires foam discs. It has an internal magazine with an ammo capacity of 5 x foam discs.

The ammo loading mechanism works by simply pushing a switch on the side and the magazine cover will slide open, load the foam discs in and then close the magazine cover.

Prime the blaster via its top mounted slider, then pull the trigger to fire a shot. Repeat the priming process to fire each shot.

The foam discs comprise of a flexible silicone rubber cap shaped core with a ring of soft foam surrounding it. Nerf refers to this foam disc design as "XLR Tech".

The blaster comes packaged with 5 x Vortex foam discs. It also has a tactical rail which is compatible with N-Strike accessories.

Average stock range is around 55-65ft.

Available at most major dept stores in Singapore.
Retail Price: SGD$31.90.

  2. Which Vortex blaster is your favorite? I only have the Proton and I'm not sure whether I'll get this one or not. Also, I can't remember if I asked whether you could put a link to my blog
    blastermodsandmore.blogspot.com
    Thanks, please reply :)

  3. Blaster Mods and More,

    So far, i prefer the Praxis.

    I can't list a link to your blog as it features airsoft too. Airsoft is illegal in Singapore (where most of my site readership is from) so its not a suitable site link.

  4. Ok, thanks for the help. I really like the Proton, and was thinking about getting the Vigilon. Is it a good buy or not? I like the idea of having more than one shot but don't want to spend the money on a Praxis or Nitron.

  5. Blaster Mods and More,

    Sure, the Vigilon has a 5 shot ammo capacity so it has some advantage over the Proton.

    1. mbryanawesome,

      Vigilon... basically because it has a higher ammo capacity.

  7. Does the "loading gate" on the Vigilon open on the right side of the body for left-handed users?

    1. Jeremey,

      The ammo loading compartment only opens on the left side of the blaster.

  8. Does this blaster fit into the holster on the tactical vest like the maverick?

      Unfortunately, its too wide to fit in the Nerf Tactical Vest's front holster.

      Praxis is overall better, it uses clips with higher ammo capacity and is primed via a pump action grip.
