Weapon Review:
The Nerf® Stinging Scarab is a simple gun with a fancy design. Because of this weapon's being in the Max Force 2112 line of weapons, it resembles an Scarab (which is basically a winged bug). The weapon also resembles the Nerf® Gator in design. The only positive thing about the weapon is its high maximum distance when compared to other micro dart weapons.

The problem with this weapon is its accuracy. The problem is brought on by two different things. First, the weapon has no trigger. So, when you fire the weapon, you let go of the plunger which snaps forward. This causes the weapon to jerk, which affects the shot. Second, the handle on the weapon is designed for little kids. Older Nerf® warriors will have a difficult time holding the weapon when firing it.

There really is no reason to buy the Stinging Scarab.   Buy a more traditional gun instead.
