In the last report, I already introduced you to one of the new blasters from this series, today it’s about the Nerf Vagabond. This dart thrower also comes in a cool, uncompromising end-time outfit. The Vagabond seems at first glance like a rough cut with revolver magazine – so much in advance, everything else you can now learn in this report.
Details about the vagabond

Orange, black with partly transparent body parts – that’s how it is known from the Doomlands blasters, and that’s exactly what the Nerf Vagabond is made of. As mentioned earlier, the rough-cut is very similar to it, but fortunately – it is equipped with a drum magazine. The Vagabond also looks much beefier than their supposed twin, which is not surprising at the almost 800g weight and 18cm more length. At the bottom is, as usual with shotguns, the lever for repeating.
The revolver magazine brings the usual advantages: robustness, reliability, and protection of the darts – on the other hand, of course, the usual drawback: reloading takes time. Simply change the magazine does not work. For me, however, clearly outweigh the benefits. You do not need batteries for the Nerf Vagabond; the direct piston is simply stretched by repeating, then triggered by pressing the trigger. It is great that the Blaster also supports Slam-Fire. If you do not already know this cool feature, you can simply pull the trigger and push the cocking lever back and forth – the faster you do it, the faster the rate of fire.
Nerf Vagabond Mod
As usual with the theme nerfs, the Vagabond has little modding potential. There is a tactical rail at the back of the upper part, as well as two points where you can attach your harness. Visually, she makes quite a lot, who wants to can of course still further romp and the Vagabond miss his style. More info: Nerf Modding
So far we could not make any experiences with the tuning of the Nerf Vagabond. It will certainly not be long before it is refilled by relevant accessories manufacturers – we stay on the ball and inform you as soon as we know more.
The nerf vagabond in the field test
I’ll make it short: In the range test, it brought the Vagabond to an average of 11.5 meters and a maximum of 15 meters. This is ok and in today’s blaster’s good mediocrity. For the particularly demanding Nerf Gun fan, there are still other models, and sooner or later you will be able to drive the Nerf Vagabond by a stronger spring even more.
Our conclusion: I like the new Doomland Blaster, and the Vagabond is no exception. The style is just cool, and Hasbro just succeeds in putting this mixture of the wild west, science fiction and end time into the limelight. The performance is ok, if not superior, but the technology is mature, robust and durable. For me, this is one of the most promising of the last time Neuerscheinugn. The Nerf Vagabond gets in any case – how could it be otherwise – a buy recommendation from us.
