The Ultimate Nerf Ultra Amp Review

Our final entry in this series, the Nerf Ultra Amp is an excellent compact weapon to carry around if you want an easy-to-use, formidable weapon that you can operate without fail.

But when it comes to this final entry, does it stack up to some of the other blasters that we’ve covered so far, and is it one that features far fewer disadvantages in comparison to similar blasters in this line and outside of it?

If you’re interested in the Nerf Ultra Amp, let’s take a closer look at what it is and what it has to offer when it’s put into play in our Youtube video below. 


Style and Design

The Nerf Ultra Amp sticks to its guns and maintains the color scheme characteristic of the series, sporting a ghost white and Nerf orange design with a golden “ULTRA” logo on the side of the blaster.

As we’ve stated, this is a very compact gun for a motorized blaster, making it easy to carry around on the battlefield despite the fact that it holds six AA batteries.

If you know someone who has been on the hunt for a light, powerful blaster that they can use in their Nerf battles, the Nerf Ultra Amp is an excellent contender!


Ammo Capacity

Similar to other motorized handguns throughout the Nerf series, the Nerf Ultra Amp is capable of carrying up to six darts at a time in its clip system.

  • MOTORIZED DART BLASTING: Fire darts at targets with fast, motorized blasting (blaster work only with Nerf Ultra darts)

Much like it is with the rest of the series, the Nerf Ultra Amp uses Nerf Ultra darts that have an innovative flight tip, aerofin technology, and lightweight foam to help the darts travel further when they’re fired.

The clip system is also a joy to use as all you have to do is load it, pop it in, and pull it out to reload it. No messing with buttons to get this clip system out!


Firing Style and Range

The Nerf Ultra Amp is semi-automatic. To operate it, simply hold down on the acceleration trigger located directly beneath the main trigger and fire at will!

Once you fire, you can tell that this blaster is definitely powerful, which is representative of the Nerf Ultra Series increased distance of 120-feet per shot.

We’ll talk more about whether or not this blaster reaches that distance once we dive into our full series comparison article next time!


Additional Features

There are a few minor additional features on this blaster worth noting. These include:

  • Built-in Scope: While the Nerf Ultra Amp scope is more decorative in nature than it is practical, it does provide you with a bit more focus as you aim your blaster at enemies so that you can improve your accuracy and stabilize your shots.

  • Openings for Straps: Whether you’re running around with another blaster or simply like to ensure that your blaster won’t accidentally fall out of your hands while you’re running, the Nerf Ultra Amp features slots at the top and the bottom of the blaster where you can attach strap clips to make sure your blaster is always on you.

  • Front Handle for Improved Grip: Although this blaster is light, it does feature a handle at the front of the blaster to help you stabilize your shots when moving around on the battlefield.

  • Attachment at the Back for Shoulder Stock: Feel like you need more stability as you’re operating the Nerf Amp? Whether you want to attach a basic shoulder stock or one that features extra storage for more clip systems, there’s an attachment at the back of the Amp for your favorite shoulder stock.

What We Like

  • Easy to Operate: While a few Nerf Ultra weapons are a bit more difficult to use and carry around, it seems like Nerf really focused on functionality in this line, which is something that we can clearly see when we reflect on the Nerf Ultra Amp. Simply load it up with batteries, push the clip in, and fire. There’s nothing more to it that would make it hard to use in light or heavy battle.

  • Lightweight and (Relatively) Quiet: Generally speaking, blasters that require batteries can often be quite heavy and loud. Fortunately, the Nerf Ultra Amp only weighs a whopping two pounds and runs a lot smoother and quieter than some of the other blasters in this series. If these are features that are important to the Nerf enthusiast in your life, they’ll find using the Nerf Ultra Amp a joy.

  • Motor Speeds Up Quickly: Waiting for the motor to speed up can be a bit of a hassle. With full battery on the Nerf Ultra Amp, however, you can expect to start launching darts in a matter of seconds.

  • No Hassle With Clip System: Clip systems can be difficult to work with if there are a bunch of extra buttons and special loading directions that you need to follow in order to use your blaster. With the Nerf Ultra Amp, just load your clip, push it in, and pull it out to reload it.

  • Extra Features for Greater Stability: With a front handle to help you aim quickly, a space for a shoulder stock so you can steady your shot, and a built-in scope to make it easier for you to maintain your accuracy, the Nerf Ultra Amp is not only an efficient weapon but one designed for greater accuracy and stability as well.

What We Don’t Like

There’s nothing wrong with this blaster that we could find, making it one of the most solid weapons on our list.

However, the only thing to note is that this blaster does take batteries. Buying batteries for Nerf weapons over time can be quite expensive, and Nerf blasters may lose some of their power and efficiency as they lose battery power.

Additionally, if you’re in the middle of a battle and you don’t have an extra blaster to rely on when you’re batteries die, you’re out of luck.

This is just one thing to keep in mind that could be considered a disadvantage of all motorized blasters.

Our Verdict

So, what do we think of the Nerf Ultra Amp? Overall, it’s an excellent weapon that almost any age group could use.

With a quick motor, an easy clip system, and plenty of extra features to help you get the most out of this weapon, the Nerf Ultra Amp is a great weapon to turn to for any Nerf battle.
