Nerf Mega Dart Capacity 

The Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster distinguishes itself from other Mega XL blasters by increasing the ammo capacity, which makes it a more viable primary weapon that someone could carry into battle and use to fight off more than one enemy at a time.

Your Boom Dozer comes with a six-dart, rotating barrel and an open face to ensure that you can have hours of fun with your new Mega blaster.

Firing Style and Range 

The Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster is a pump-action blaster (with slam-fire capabilities, to boot). To operate your blaster, simply load all of your Mega XL darts into the barrel via the available space at the front of your weapon, pump the grip at the bottom of the blaster (which is equally large and comfortable to hang onto), and fire at will!

The Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster is reported to fire darts as far as 58 feet. Whether you’re taking on an enemy at short range or you need to surprise them with a mid-range attack using your fun Mega XL whistling darts, the Boom Dozer does the trick!

Additional Features 

Much like the other blasters in this series, the Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster is a relatively straightforward blaster. However, there are some additional features that will make it easier for you to get the most out of your experience with the Boom Dozer.  

 If you’re a fan of customization, the Boom Dozer offers generous tactical rail space so that you can equip your weapon with some of your favorite accessories. Given that this is a much larger weapon than many are accustomed to, you might need some additional stability for greater accuracy.

You’ll find that the Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster has an attachment point for a shoulder stock.  

 Although this weapon is quite bulky and you may not want to add anything more to it to risk altering its operation, it does give you the opportunity to do so.

What We Like 

  • Plenty of Ammo: While there are a lot of Nerf guns that offer you the ability to fire 10 or more darts at a time, six darts should be sufficient, especially on a blaster that’s easy to operate. If you want a Mega blaster that can help you hit your opponents with ease and intimidate them along the way, you want the Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster.  

  • Good Firing Distance: Firing distance can be a little bit tricky with such large bullets, so having a 58-foot distance is pretty impressive. Even if you find yourself in a rather large area battling other opponents, this should be enough for short-range and mid-range combat. Just make sure to take into account things like the wind before you start firing all of your ammo! 

  • Extra Space to Customize: Customization isn’t always necessary. This is even more true for such large weapons like the Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster. However, if you want to improve your shots and take full advantage of slam-fire capabilities, for example, it wouldn’t hurt to add a detachable shoulder stock and a scope. You can do whatever you want with your Boom Dozer.

What Could Be Improved 

  • Might Be Somewhat Difficult to Reload: Some blasters like the Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm blaster have spoiled us with additional features like a button you can press on the side to pop out the rotating barrel. Don’t get us wrong. You still have plenty of room to feed in your Mega XL darts into your rotating barrel on the sides of the blaster. However, it’s simply not as efficient as being able to pop your barrel out, quickly load all of your darts into the barrel without having to try to shove it into the sides and rotate it, and pop it back in within a matter of seconds. When you’re faced with several enemies and you’re scrambling to reload, you’ll see what we mean! It doesn’t completely devalue this blaster, but it would be great to see this feature incorporate into more six-dart rotating blasters.  

Our Verdict 

When approaching a new line, it’s always best to do your research and ensure you’re getting the best bang for your buck. So, is the Nerf Mega XL Boom Dozer blaster the right blaster for your child?

 With an ammo capacity of six darts, extra features like a big tactical rail and a place for a shoulder stock, and slam-fire capabilities with a firing range of 58-feet, the Boom Dozer should be a favorite for those who want to enjoy the blasters offered by this 2021 release!
