Nerf N-Strike Spectre REV-5

The Versatility of The Nerf Spectre

The Nerf Spectre REV-5 is maybe the most versatile weapon in the current Nerf lineup. The hook of this gun is just how customizable it is. There have been a lot of guns with a detachable scope or laser pointer or something along those lines, but the Spectre can actually be adjusted to fit just about any situation, making it the perfect backup gun, as it can fill any role should something jam or run out of ammo at just the wrong time.

When you first open the box, you’ll notice that the core of the gun is very similar to the Maverick with its .357 modeled shape and five shot rotating chamber. What makes the Spectre special, though, are the detachable stock and silencer/long barrel.

This means that you have three different shapes to go with for this gun (well, four, but who wants a stock but no barrel?). If you want a backup pistol, remove the stock and the barrel for a basic Maverick style gun. If you want something for more precise long range attacks, put the stock and barrel on the gun for some medium-long range sniping. By using the long barrel but not the stock, you have a handgun that can work with a little more accuracy at a longer range than a standard maverick.

A Stock For A Pistol?

The stock is collapsible, so if you’re carrying it as a backup, you’ll probably want to carry it with the stock collapsed and the barrel attached, allowing you to reach for it as a mid-range pistol, or extend the stock to do some sniping. The gun’s effective range is around thirty feet, making it surprisingly effective for being based on the basic Maverick design.

Compatibility is a key word here, too. You can take the stock or the barrel and attach them to the N-Strike blaster, or you can snap the N-Strike attachment onto the top of the Spectre. It also fits snugly into the Tactical Vest, with or without the barrel and stock attached.

Auto Rotating Barrel – Always Cool

One more cool thing about the Spectre: the chamber rotates upon being cocked. The Maverick jammed up quite a bit because of its trigger-based rotating mechanism, leaving you with a misaligned chamber and five darts that won’t fire more often than not. If nothing else, the Spectre is proof that Nerf can learn from their mistakes.

Who Should Get One

So who needs this gun? Well, it’s basically a long range, mid range and short range gun all packed into one. If you want to pad out your arsenal without spending a lot of cash and hauling around fifty pounds of plastic, the Spectre’s versatility gives you three styles of attack in a single lightweight gun.

In fact, coupled with a heavy hitter like the Vulcan, you’ve pretty much got everything you need in two guns.

ts20fan - March 31, 2012

This gun is a WALMART Exclusive. They are only available in WALMART! And Maverick, step aside, there’s a new pistol in town!

litle arthur - March 9, 2012

i got one mav and i fink that is the better nerf in the market (sorri by the wrong words i’m brazilian)

Rheiki - February 3, 2012

I just bought a Spectre yesterday. The gun is amazing.

When I was a kid, I had one gun, for 3 months, and its been years since I got a new one. This gun was the Maverick. Problems: I was young and cocking it was troublesome. It jammed: A LOT. and my shots went from 25ft down to 15ft after a month.

Spectre: HOLY CRAP FOLKS! This gun blew me away, and Its hard to impress me. This gun comes with a silencer barrel (Get this, it actually makes the gun [Which fires very quietly to begin with] fire near dead silence, as well as quiet other N-Strike blasters, and quiets whistlers.

randomguy - January 5, 2012

I want to know wether this thing will work better than a maverick as a secondary, because there is a $12 difference between the two where I live, and I don’t want t pay $20.00 for something completely pointless.

Tommy - December 21, 2011

I got it 6 days ago at a nerf booth in West Edmonton Mall and it ROCKS!!! I Rate it 9.42 out of 10

the pro. - November 26, 2011

its OK…

Harry Wilde - November 1, 2011

Hey, I am an avid nerf fan in England, and I can’t find anywhere to buy this for a reasonable price! On amazon uk it is over 40! Please help 🙂 also does anyone know where I can buy the nerf pinpoint sight in the uk 🙂 thanks

    rohan - May 26, 2012

    yea ebay, the site was discontinued

TheOnly11YearOldEnglishNERFER - October 4, 2011

WOW real critical NOT

Nerf Gun Owner - September 30, 2011

I have recemtly got thiis gun and am quite supried by it. the barrel looks like a silencer which is cool, but i works better with it not on. its got good accuracy without the barrel. the barrel inproves accuracy but takes away speed and distance. i normally just use the pistol and the recon stock. the barrel makes it more annoying to hold and use. overall this is my best gun and i recomend it to people looking for a good gun to snipe other people with. i give it 9.12 out of 10

thisboyhaswoe - September 19, 2011

I just recently bought this gun. It’s awesome WITHOUT the barrel. Not unlike it’s cousin the Recon. However, I put the Spectre’s barrel on my Recon and it works great! It’s definitely worth the $20, especially if you’re into more stealthy missions.

Dan - September 12, 2011

Reasons it is better than mav 1)don’t need to slam Carthage shut 2)can be modes to look like a real 44.magnum/python/.375magnum(dependent on which you prefer) 3) no matter what you put on it, it will look somewhat awesome (ex. I took a black longstrike barrel an a orange raider stock) 4) the silencer can actually makes a small difference.

pin point nerfer - July 5, 2011

mine is way better than my mav

person - July 2, 2011

This is an awesome gun. One of the best, by far. It’s easier to reload than the mav, the stock makes it look 10 times cooler and it’s range is awesome compared to the mav.

unknown - July 1, 2011

the spectre is soooo much bettter than the maverick. It hasn’t jammed on me once… so far

pikachu11 - June 24, 2011

I went to target three days ago and i got so MADD because i couldn’t find the dam gun so i got the buzz bee toys double shot. next time im going to walmart.

fred the purple potato - June 1, 2011

would be good, but costs $32 and the maverick costs $9.99

kick ass - May 28, 2011

i think its good because it has a nice range and even though it has 5 darts its really cool and its light weight

pin point nerfer - April 23, 2011

i just got the spectre and i like it more than the maverick and it was only $5 more than a maverick
it’s thin
were the tactical rail is
the cocking handle
range accuracy
it not trigger based barrel movement
how many different types of darts it can use
5 dart barrel not 6 like maverick
no inbuilt site
longer than maverick
i think if it’s not that much difference in price than i highly suggest getting it

milk - February 7, 2011

i like it but only the pistol

doggie - February 6, 2011

i think the gun looks cool, considering the sleek barrel, but otherwise its not my tioe of gun.

milk - February 5, 2011

and the long barrel is pointless

milk - February 5, 2011

and i like milk.

milk - February 5, 2011

i think the spectre is ok but its not my tipe of gun.

doggie - February 2, 2011

i think i like the barricade because its the only pistol you can duel wield with but it makes alot of noise

someone - January 29, 2011

someone - January 26, 2011

i think this gun is amazing i’m getting it for my birthday
i already got the maverick and this is basically all of my complaints fixed:
not as bulky
grippier primer
you can put any stocks on it
and the tactical rail isnt on the primer

nate - January 14, 2011

well the stock is a great addition, the way that it can collapse is very interesting, nerf is really on its way to some great guns, altho it does look alot like the mav witch means they might be running out of ideas, bc they also hav to look at safety, bc this is a great gun and a safe gun for the younger ones who r going to be buying this the most, i giv this a 4 out of 5 bc of the stock and the feel of the gun, but i dont like how u prime the gun from the top like the recon(witch is a discrace of a gun) but overall a nice gun for people who dont mod

andreww7 - December 29, 2010

Recon and maverick had sex and this is the result

William - December 27, 2010

I think the spectre rev 5 is a great nerf gun but I dont like when a dart gets jamed in the gun barell

special k - December 22, 2010

i love it. im in a huge nerf battle and its the jack of all trades. its amazing.

abc - December 21, 2010

its ok.

Redskin689 - December 20, 2010

Its a maverick with less ammo. Barrels do nothing but kill range, and stocks get in the way.

SNIPE KING - December 19, 2010

this gun is ok for starters but if ur like me you’ll stick with the mavrik 1: the mavrik holds more ammo
2:the mavrik looks and feels better , and 3:the mavrik shoots father and is far more accurate.

A person - December 17, 2010

It just looks a resell.

TheOnly11YearOldEnglishNERFER - December 8, 2010

hi jacob

Mason - December 7, 2010

it is way to close to the Mav and its just a crappy gun anyways the stock is alittle cool but no i wouldn’t tell anyone to get it for anything stick with the Mav guys its the best except for the Vulcan

MEZGERMEISTER - December 5, 2010

i have the nerf gun. its decent, though the stock is some-what pointless, and the barrel extension doesnt do very much of anything. it just makes it look cool.

Dave - December 1, 2010

Does adding the barrel extension actually increase accuracy? On my Recon the extension greatly reduces the range and accuracy, not sticking anything on the front gives much better results.

Billy - November 27, 2010

Cool Blaster, I saw a review on this and i like how it shoots. I think its neat.

sharko 2100 - November 27, 2010

what the heck who wood want this mav already has good range and acuracy

Ben - November 16, 2010

I dont know about this gun it’s too close to the maverick for me I don’t want to spend the money
