Buzz Bee Tetra-Strike - Review!

Looking for a compact sidearm that can fire in both true semi-auto and full-auto?

Gear up with the Buzz Bee Tetra-Strike!

The Buzz Bee Tetra-Strike is an air tank powered blaster which is primed by filling its individual air tank chambers via an on-board pump handle, it takes around 8-9 pumps to fill up its air tanks.

Its design and firing style resembles the Nerf Blast Fire or Nerf Hornet, though the Tetra-Strike has a more compact form factor and utilises a different method of activating its firing modes.

It has 4 barrels which can be fired in either semi-auto or full-auto/burst fire. The firing mode is controlled by trigger pull travel, each progressive quarter travel of the trigger pull fires off one shot, the firing sequence is from the top barrel to the bottom barrel.

If the trigger is pulled fully in one quick action, the shots can be fired off in a full-auto or burst fire effect.

The Tetra-Strike package comes with 6 x suction tip darts. It is compatible with most Nerf foam darts too. The average range is around 25-30ft in both semi-auto and full auto/burst fire modes.

In my opinion, the Tetra-Strike is the ideal compact sidearm for any game scenario. It is easy to holster and light to carry, has good range, and its semi-auto and full-auto firing modes are very effective in close-quarter firefights... carry two and its dual-wield blaster time! :)
