This was an April Fools’ joke from Thinkgeek, but it’s clearly a product that needs to exist.
The NERF Nuke is quite simply the pinnacle of NERF weaponry. Load it with 80 NERF darts and crank the arming mechanism (which is also the trigger button, so be careful). To conserve space, the NERF Nuke uses a reverse-plunger system, which compromises distance for compactness. But hey, it’ll still fire the darts up to 30 feet when it hits. However, the NERF Nuke Launcher is a tripod-mounted, direct-plunger system, and can rocket the NERF Nuke itself up to 40 feet – just far enough for you to be outside the blast radius. When you need to end it, and end it fast, there’s no other choice than the NERF Nuke!
Safety Warning: Do not fire the NERF Nuke at humans, children, pets, wild animals, trees, the elderly, faces, ghosts, or in very confined spaces. Always wear safety glasses, knee pads, and other forms of protection.
