Load 8 micro darts into the front orange barrels of the SuperMAXX 3000.
Pump the purple cocking handle 6-8 times.  We recommend pumping it only 6 times to achieve the blaster's maximum distance.

Do not pump the blaster more than 8 times.  You can damage the air tank.

Pull the blaster's orange oversized trigger to fire.  You must prime the blaster again after each shot, but the SuperMAXX 3000's barrel automatically advances to the next chamber.

Let me start out by saying that the Blue Edition of the SuperMAXX 3000 doesn't hold a candle to the Yellow Edition.

The blaster does improve over the Green Edition of the SuperMAXX 3000 family, though.  Yes, it still fires micro darts (not SuperMAXX darts), but this new edition seems to pack a bit more punch than its green-colored cousin.  Its maximum distance is a little higher, and the barrel on this edition doesn't skip quite as much.  However, if you remember how horrible the Green Edition really was, you can see that these statements indicate that this model really is only an average blaster.

One thing should be said in the Blue Edition's favor - this blaster has an extremely cool design.  Sadly, looks aren't everything.

The Nerf SuperMAXX 3000 Blue Edition isn't worth jack.

There are no significant improvements made in this new edition of the blaster over its previous counterparts.  The launcher still fires micro darts like the Green Edition, and hasn't fixed the problems of skipping shots.  In addition, the blaster is awkward and bulky, which makes it difficult to move quickly when hauling it around.

Save your money; there are better micro dart-firing products on the market.

This blaster is pretty much a stylized version of the SuperMAXX 3000 Green Edition.  The new design has fixed some problems (slightly) and added some new difficulties.  First the good news.  The velocity and accuracy have been increased in this version of the launcher. This blaster also has a much better weight distribution and more room on the carrying handle.

Now the bad news. The new design has a totally awkward trigger that uses the whole hand. The air pressure mechanism is hard to pump; and like the prior version, this blaster’s automatically rotating barrel skips a dart slot if it is pumped too hard.

Once again, micro darts fail to do the job. This blaster, however, is an improvement over its green-tanked relative. It isn’t a star by any means but will get the job done.


In Brief

> Barrel automatically advances
> Cool-looking design
> Doesn't use SuperMAXX darts
> Awkward to fire
> Barrel skips
> Underpowered
It's a mediocre blaster, but at least it's better than the SuperMAXX 3000 Green Edition.
