Like others, the motor died within 5 minutes of opening the box. Side hatch was shut, batteries replaced, all in all it's just a cheaply made and very overpriced cash-in on the latest fad. Don't waste your money on it and definitely don't get your kids' hopes up about playing with this.
Preordered this 3 months ago. First one worked for about 30 shots & the.motor wouldn't start up. Just had a replacement sent, fired 10 darts & quit working. Yes, I made sure the orange door was closed. Been using Rayovac batteries. Gonna try a different brand battery or I'll have to return another. So disappointing!

Bought this for my youngest son for his 9th birthday. We both were very disappointed. Bullets regularly get stuck in the barrel and have to be put out. Holding down the switch to build power so bullets go takes a long time to wind up. Bullets don’t travel far. Magazine only holds 10 bullets so they run out fast. He was so excited to get it as he’s a huge Fortnite fan and plays every day. He hasn’t played with it it since his birthday. It just sits in a corner of his room. Waste of money.
I know this was my own fault......I didn't read many of the reviews here. I usually do read them, but then I usually know what I'm buying. This time, it was a product I didn't know much about so I had to research. Multiple videos and independent reviews said the Nerf Fortnight, with the battery accelerator were awesome! I needed shooters for my youngest two grandsons (the five year old that thinks he's grown, and the tall, autistic six year old) for Christmas.
I'm not going to dull you with the many steps I made to see if I could get either of these guns to work; needless to say, BOTH were defective. I will say that Amazon could not have done any thing more to help with the situation. Customer Service was awesome!
I brought this for my eight year old and I’m very disappointed it works when it want to, there’s no power, motor is weak etc. I brought a cheaper nerf gun at Walmart and it’s 10x better. So please don’t waste your money on name only. Said part he was so excited to receive it.
I purchased three of these guns for Christmas with two of them going to my nephew's and me keeping one to defend myself. I was extremely disappointed with these guns from the Nerf. for starters trying to explain to a child how he has to hold a button while pulling another button to fire is going to make that child lose interest really quickly. there is no element of surprise with this gun because you have to spend of the gear allow you to fire before you actually fire the button and that means everyone will hear you coming. If I had to do it over again I would not buy this gun it is simply a niche gun for people who play fortnite and not a niche gun for someone who enjoys a Nerf war.
We got this product and it didn't work. Basically, the motor didn't work when we put good batteries into it. This is/was because one of the internal safety buttons wasn't being depressed correctly when the jam window was closed. You can take the gun apart and fix this yourself. it's reasonably easy. If you have the same problem, just search youtube for "NERF FORTNITE AR-L SCAR Repair" and the dude's video will walk you through the fix. We used cardboard instead of plastic shims to raise the safety switch so it engaged better with the jam window, and it worked fine.
