I'd just buy one of the ammo boxes that come with 100 darts, divide them up into 4 batches and put 3 away, reason being that the darts will get lost and mangled and need to be replaced, so you NEED extras, but if the kids HAVE tons of darts on hand they don't value the ones they have. As for a fair amount to carry, I'd say 2 loads for each gun (12) would be ideal, so 24.
Why do you even need a secondary? Hasn't anybody heard of carrying extra ammo and just RELOADING? Aug 11, 2011
It lies in the fact that there are more powerful and versatile guns to be used as your primary, such as the Barricade. In addition, while the Maverick is the jack of all trades gun, its' maximum ammo input is fixed at a relatively low number, and its' modding potential is relatively low if you discount all mods for aesthetic reasons. So, while it is a solid gun, there are simply too many guns that outstrip it in sheer use as a primary. To note, I personally carry it as my secondary, as well as carry a pair of Reflexes for tertiary.
The old Maverick was blue... I have no idea why they show it in blue online. I hoped that helped! The modern Maverick is now yellow.
Could someone who owns both the Nerf Strongarm and the Maverick compare them and their performance (both unmodified or modified)? Feb 26, 2015
How would you modify it? I can only compare the Maverick to the Strongarm in regards to the Maverick arrived broken and the Strongarm worked. Every once in a while it would slip and not circle around fully to catch the next bullet, but was pretty good. However aiming is next to impossible. It's about 8-12 inches off sometimes from the target.
Can Nerf N-strike Elite darts also be used? As is the description only mentions micro-suction darts. Nov 22, 2013
We have put the regular darts, whistle darts and suction cup in there. They all fly, some farther than others.
is this gun good for 3-4 year old? is it easy to fire and easy to load for a 3-4 year old? Nov 16, 2013
3-4 year olds may have difficulty pulling the priming slide or trigger on any Nerf product. The Maverick is one pf the easiest to use, but it will depend on the particular child. Furthermore the loading system may trouble a younger child if they can not understand how to use it. The Night finder/Firestrike may be a better choice for children with poor coordination, give their simpler design.
